Betting on sport has always been a big Canadian pastime. Basketball might not be as big as hockey or even football but it is a sport that Canadians understand, enjoy and like to bet on. In the past you had to find a friend from the wrong side of town who would introduce you to some bookmaker. You didn’t know a thing about the guy and you just had to pray you weren’t going to get ripped off. How times have changed; online betting has revolutionized gaming and nothing will ever be the same. Thankfully that is good news for the average person who wants to have a bet.
The best thing about betting on basketball is that there is such a wide variety to bet on. With cable television there are plenty of games to watch and even more basketball betting available.
There are a range of bets you can have on any given game. You can have all the half time and second half betting options which basically gives you two games in one. You also have the line, head to head and total points markets. Online betting gives you the advantage because you can take the time to surf the net and you can easily find all the information required to make an informed choice.
Basketball betting at places like 888sport offers Canadians the very best services they could ever hope to receive. 888sport is part of the 888 online gaming company, one of the largest in the world. People from all over the globe bet with 888 every day so there is plenty of competition which means better prices for you.
One question that is often asked is that of safety. Is internet betting safe? Well unfortunately not all sports books are going to be safe. It’s hard enough picking a winner without worrying if you are actually going to get paid or not. Some of the other online betting agencies are operated on small Caribbean Islands, some of which you may never even have heard of and you can’t be sure that your money is safe. 888 on the other hand is a publicly listed company on the London Stock Exchange and this means that they are bound by British law. All that means is that your money is safe and you are going to get paid every time.
Imagine sitting down in the comfort of your own home with a cold beer accessing all the sports betting markets you could ever want to bet on. Why would you bet with your mates or some local bookmaker when you can bet in the comfort and safety on your own home on the internet? Online betting is easy, safe and most of all it gives you the betting service you have always been looking for.
