The Proline Review Blog

Comparing Proline payouts and odds to those of Canadian-friendly online sportsbooks.

NFL 2017/18 is here. It's time to drop Proline or Sport Select, just compare the odds!
It's pretty simple guys.  Proline is run by the government.  You have to play parlays only.  When you do play, the odds are terrible.  They come up with their odds days ahead of the game and have no room to change them, because the odds exist on a sheet of paper at your corner store.  This means the odds have to be so bad for you so that they will make money no matter what happens in the game.

Betting sites change their odds constantly to balance the amount of potential payouts for all potential outcomes of the event.  This leads to higher paying odds for you.  Even if you want to play at just one betting site, you can have potential payouts 10 to 40% higher than the sports lottery games in Canada.

If you REALLY want an edge, you can compare your betting odds and lines from the already competitive online sportsbooks with a free tool like OddsJet.com.  Even between the competitive betting sites, odds can vary significantly - 3 to 10% on single events and up to 50% when you bet in combination bets.

What have you learned:

1) Canadian sports lottery games are engineered for you to lose.  When you win, you won't win much.

2) If you switch to a single betting site like a MarathonBet or Bodog or Sports Interaction, your odds will be much better, meaning higher potential payouts and your entire experience will be more convenient than having to go down to your corner store.

3) If you really want to jump ahead for the absolute best possible returns, you'll compare odds and lines with free odds comparison tools like OddsJet.
