Canadian bettors are in a better position than those from the USA. It’s usually far easier for Canadian citizens to deposit and withdraw than their US counterparts. While the laws on gambling are all still a bit of a grey area in Canada, more betting firms feel confident enough to serve the Canadian market than the US market, so Canadians have far more betting options than Americans.

So all of our best USA sportsbooks are also available to Canadians with the exception of Bovada but that’s OK as you can simply use its parent company’s site Bodog instead. Only two of our UK and Ireland bookmakers are currently available in Canada, William Hill and Bet365.
However, there are further great options available to Canadians which are not available to their southern neighbors.
Pinnacle Sports: Pinnacle Sports are one of the best sportsbooks, they offer perhaps the lowest margins of any honest sportsbook, sometimes as low as just 1.5% and usually no more than 4-5%. They claim they can offer such low margins because of just how good their trading staff is at formulating the odds. They even say they welcome arbitrage bettors (bettors who bet across different sportsbooks to guarantee a profit regardless of the outcome) and even have a page explaining what it is. We concur that they are a must have sportsbook for anyone looking for arbitrage or simply looking for great odds. Pinnacle have been operating successfully with this low margin for years. Their claim to have confidence in their staff looks justified, so if you wanted to get a good indication of the likelihood of an outcome occurring Pinnacle odds would perhaps be a great place to look.
