Canadian Sports Lottery Betting Revisited

If you read my other post asking why NHL fans bet on Proline you will already know my position on the matter.  The simple fact is that Proline odds are far worse than the odds you will find at an online sportsbook and for this reason nobody in their right mind would be on Proline when they can easily set up an online sportsbook account.

When I talk about an online sportsbook I do not mean one of the other government run sports lotteries like Sports Action out West or Proline Stadium in the Maritimes, but a real online sportsbook with no government affiliation such as SportsInteraction.com, a great sportsbook for Canadian sports fans.  I was looking at the odds of a couple of these government run sports lotteries (Sports Action and Proline) and wanted to share with you my findings compared to Sports Interaction.

Examples

Tonight there are 6 games in the NHL so let’s make this easy and select all of the away teams in our 6 team parlay.  This means tonight we will be taking the Devils, Blackhawks, Rangers, Wild, Stars and Flames.  Here are the odds at each of the various Canadian sports lotteries in that order, with a $10 risk associated.

Sports Action: (1.90 x 1.90 x 1.60 x 3.00 x 1.85 x 2.15) x $10 = $689.20
Proline: (1.90 x 2.00 x 1.50 x 3.00 x 1.60 x 2.10) x $10 = $574.60

Sports Interaction: (2.10 x 2.15 x 1.69 x 3.30 x 1.87 x 2.50) x $10 = $1176.66

As you can see the people gambling on Sports Action out West are getting slightly better odds than the Proline bettors in Ontario, but neither comes close to the potential payout from Sports Interaction.  If you bet through a Canadian sports lottery you are leaving money on the table.

There are no Sports Action or Proline tips or strategies that will enable you to win with such poor odds.  Even if you are the best Proline prediction guy in the world you are wasting your talents betting through a program that does not offer the best odds.

Conclusion

All Canadian sports lotteries provide remarkably horrible odds for their players.  Proline is basically a tax for stupid sports fans that are ignorant about the extra money they would be making betting online.  This doesn`t even factor in the sign up bonuses and promotions that you receive online at a site like Sports Interaction.  If you are Canadian I highly recommend signing up at SportsInteraction.com for your NHL betting needs.

My other site, NHLBettingTips.com will hopefully be offering a NHL playoff bracket competition and also a free no strings attached $20 bet at Sports Interaction come the playoffs.  Stay tuned for more information on that.
