👟 PointsBet Ontario Sportsbook
The PoinsBet Sportsbook in Ontario provides bettors with 15 sports and close to 100 leagues to wager on. The site focuses mainly on popular Canadian sports like Basketball, Baseball, Football, Hockey and MMA. There are however a number of top international sports on offer as well, like Soccer, Tennis, Rugby, Cricket and Aussie Rules. Less popular betting markets like Snooker, Volleyball, eSports and Darts can also be accessed at the sportsbook.
What’s unique about PointsBet is the special pointsbetting format of bets. With points bets your winnings or losses from a bet are not determined until the very end of a game. They are determined based on how right or wrong your prediction was. The more you’re right the more you win and the more you’re wrong, the more you will lose. Bettors can get a full explanation about pointsbetting on the FAQ section of the site.
On top of the pointsbetting, bettors will also find fixed odds sports betting like normal sports betting sites. All the popular markets are available including money lines, points spreads, totals, outrights and props.
