Canadians can enjoy a wide variety of NFL football betting options that reach far beyond what's offered by the likes of Sports Interaction, Pro-Line and other province run betting operations. By betting with online sports books like Bet365 and Pinnacle Sports, NFL bettors from Canada avoid being forced to parley multiple games together to make a single wager, they can shop around for the best odds, they can receive deposit and loyalty bonuses, and they can also wager much greater amounts than any provincial book would ever take.
You also get a much wider range of betting options and below you'll find a sampling of some of those NFL football markets. Remember, this is just a sample of the markets available to you. Books will often offer more than 100 markets on a single NFL play-off game.

Pinnacle Sports is far and away the best place for Canadians to bet on NFL football. They offer simple and inexpensive deposit and withdrawal options for residents of Canada and they also, hands down, offer the best NFL lines anywhere. You'd think that qualities like that would be enough to win them the favour of every serious bettor, but they actually offer much more than just great lines and simple banking. Pinnacle Sports also offers some of the highest NFL betting limits of any online sports book. Their typical betting limit for a regular season game is $30,000 and they bump that during the playoffs, sometime reaching offering limits of $100,000.
You may have noticed that one rather glaring difference between Pinnacle Sports and some of the other sports books that we feature on canadiansportsbetting.ca is that they don't offer a welcome bonus. Be assured that this is by design. By eliminating bonuses, Pinnacle has managed to offer better odds on a very consistent basis. Over the course of your NFL betting career, these better odds will provide you much more profit than any deposit bonus could.
The Seahawks and the Patriots will be meeting on Super Bowl Sunday with neither team garnering an edge on the spread. Right now Pinnacle Sports is offering the game as a pick 'em and that's the general consensus among the sports betting community.
The Seahawks came out on top in the Conference Championship game, but not without some low points. Russel Wilson was picked off four separate times and the Seahawks gave up a total of five turnovers. If not for a successful 35 yard touchdown pass from Wilson during over time, we might be talking about Aaron Rodgers in this Super Bowl. And if we need to add some injury to that near insult we need only look to Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas. Both players left the game last Sunday with injury and are questionable for the Super Bowl. It's been rumoured that both are very likely to play, but it's doubtful that they'll be at 100%. And with Seattle relying so heavily on their defence to get the job done, having those two on shaky ground is concerning for NFL bettors.
The Patriots should be flying high after their win over the Colts last Sunday, but instead their dealing with the onslaught of rumours surrounding deflate gate. Putting rumours and accusations aside for the moment, the Patriots were excellent both offensively and defensively last Sunday and so much so that the majority of NFL experts are picking them to win the Super Bowl game outright. Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes and LeGarrette Blount ran in 3 touchdowns and racked up 148 rushing yards. Most importantly, the Patriots managed to completely shut down Andrew Luck. They kept the most prolific quarterback in the league this past season to just over 100 passing yards and zero touchdowns. Along the way they also picked him off twice.
Both of these teams were pegged as the favourite from their respective conferences so it's going to be a difficult pick. Making things even more difficult is that these two teams thrive on home field advantage and neither of them will have that in the Super Bowl. If you're looking for an indication of how the fans feel though, almost 60% of the money is on the Patriots right now. We'll have to see if that number deflates by next Sunday.
|NFL Team||Spread||Money Line||Total|
|New England Patriots||+0 @ 1.934||OTB||Over 48.0 @ 2.020|
|Seattle Seahawks||-0 @ 1.970||OTB||Under 48.0 @ 1.884|
