Best Sportsbooks For Cricket Betting In Ontario

Where Can You Bet On Cricket In Ontario?

Before the launch, it’s been difficult to find answers to questions like “Will bet365 Ontario have cricket?” or “Where can I find cricket odds in Ontario?” It’s expected that sportsbooks including bet365, 888sport, Unibet, and PointsBet will all offer cricket betting in Ontario. When there is more information available we will update with sportsbooks currently taking bets.

How To Bet On Cricket In Ontario

Step 1: Download the app or navigate to the sportsbook’s website. The major sportsbooks offer apps for both Android and iOS users. In some cases the App Store or Google Play Store may block sportsbook apps, so you will need to go to the sportsbook’s official website for a link to download the app. You can also play on your mobile phone or other mobile devices.

Step 2: Register or sign up with the sportsbook. Sportsbooks will need to verify your age and identity, so be prepared to enter your name and address as well as date of birth. Our site will have all of the sign-up bonuses available at the various Ontario sportsbooks. If you want to use a bonus, you may need to enter a bonus code when you register.

Step 3: Make a deposit. Online sportsbooks will accept payment by bank transfer, Interac, credit and debit cards, and some may accept PayPal. There may be a minimum deposit, so check the sportsbook’s terms to see what amount you can start with.

Step 4: Find the odds and place a bet. Navigate to the Cricket section of the app or site. If there is an ongoing tournament it will be easy to find as it will probably be the first displayed. 888 Sport, for example, divides its cricket matches section into live matches and upcoming matches.

Even though there may be a limited selection of Ontario cricket betting apps, you can still compare odds with different sportsbooks to see what works best for you. Although you can sign up with multiple sportsbooks, do not create an account with the same sportsbook more than once.

The Ashes

Betting on the Ashes from Ontario is going to be legal for the first time in history. This long-running match between England and Australia is one of the biggest Test cricket rivalries and has run for 72 series. The late Shane Warne still holds the record for most wickets in the series: 195.

Twenty20 cricket’s popularity is here to stay and the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is one of the most anticipated matches of the year. Usually held in July, it will be in October 2022 due to the delay caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Australia, the defending champions, will host the tournament.

Canadian fans of one-day cricket are looking forward to being able to bet on the ICC Cricket World Cup, the international championship of One Day International cricket. Like the Olympics, it is held once every four years. Since there are four stages to the tournament, there are plenty of chances to bet and win.

ICC Champions Trophy

Another one-day cricket tournament, the next ICC Champions Trophy will occur in 2025.

Indian Premier League

The IPL 2022 final runs from March 26 to May 29, 2022, so it’s possible that bettors in Canada may be able to legally bet on the IPL final. The IPL is one of the most popular cricket leagues worldwide, with fans across the world tuning in to matches.

It is expected that various one-day international matches, as well as women’s cricket, will also be available to bet on once all the Ontario cricket sportsbooks are live.

How Cricket Betting Odds Are Calculated

Even players who are not beginners to betting may want to know: What are cricket odds? The Ontario online sports betting odds will represent the probability of a specific result in a game. The higher the betting odds, the less likely the outcome.

There are many different types of odds in cricket, including who will score the most runs, take the most wickets, be named man of the match, and so on. The most typical odds you’ll come across though, are for Team 1 or Team 2 to win the match. Online sportsbooks will assign a value to the two outcomes based on their probability.
