NFL Betting Returns to British Columbia

11/09/2018

NFL games are the most popular sports betting events on PlayNow.com

With the 2018 NFL season just hours away from kick off, 32 teams will soon begin their quest to compete for football’s ultimate prize: the Super Bowl. B.C. bettors have the opportunity to get in on all of the action on PlayNow.com.

Tonight’s kickoff signals the return of the most popular sports betting events on PlayNow.com and Sports Action. The NFL is the top league on a per event basis, with its games seeing more betting action in B.C. than any other sports league. 

During the 2017-18 season, B.C. bettors wagered approximately $15.5 million on close to 1.1 million bets on all NFL games through PlayNow.com and Sports Action, with each regular-season game seeing about 700 bets totalling $17,000, on average.

Bettors in B.C. will have the opportunity to wager on all 32 teams through props, live betting and other specials, including which team will win Super Bowl LIII.

After an off-season full of changes, odds makers consider the Seattle Seahawks as one of this year’s underdogs to win the Vince Lombardi trophy, with 44 to 1 odds currently on PlayNow.com

Five time Super Bowl champions, the New England Patriots, are currently favoured to add a sixth championship with 6 to 1 odds, followed by last year’s winners, the Philadelphia Eagles, at 9 to 1 odds. B.C. bettors have most of their money on the LA Rams, a team that made some big changes to its defense during the off-season. Right now, more bets are on the Rams to win the Super Bowl than any other team on PlayNow.com. A full list of odds is on PlayNow.com

Through PlayNow.com, BCLC offers socially responsible gambling entertainment while generating income to benefit all British Columbians. Remember, play for fun, not to make money. For more information, visit GameSense.ca.
