How To Bet On Sports in Edmonton

Betting on sports has become mainstream in Canada over the past several years. It’s not common for popular sports shows to discuss betting lines and picks, and we’re also seeing many more sports betting related commercials on traditional media. Sports betting is becoming more engrained in Canadian culture, and this is also true in Edmonton, where locals enjoy some betting action as much as anywhere else in the country.

If you’ve navigated to this page, you’re probably ready to place some bets, so let’s get right to it:

Sports Betting in Edmonton – FAQ

If you’re still here and haven’t gone to place your bets, maybe it’s because you have some more questions related to sports betting in Edmonton. Below I will answer some of the more common questions I receive from Edmonton residents.

What are your thoughts on local bookies in Edmonton?

I would advise against using local bookies in Edmonton. It is not legal to run an unregulated sports betting operation from within Canada, so the local bookie would be breaking the law by taking your bets.

I suggest using one of the betting sites that we’ve outlined above.

Can I place bets with my credit card?

Yes, each of our recommended betting sites allow deposits via credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express).

Some sites (Bet365) will allow withdrawals via credit back to your card, but others (SIA and Bodog) require you to cash out your winnings through other methods such as bank wire or check through the mail.

Can I fund my betting account with Interac?

Yes, two of the three betting sites we recommend above allows both deposits and withdrawals via Interac (SportsInteraction.com and Bodog.eu).

I personally use Interac for the majority of my sports betting transactions. It’s as easy as emailing money to a friend.

What professional sports teams play out of Edmonton?

Edmonton is home to a wide variety of professional sports teams. The Edmonton Oilers of the NHL are the most popular team in the city with two of the best players in the NHL, Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, making the Oilers perennial contenders for the Stanley Cup.

  1. Edmonton Oilers (Hockey – NHL)
  2. Edmonton Elks (Football – CFL)
  3. FC Edmonton (Soccer – CPL)
  4. Edmonton Stingers (Basketball – CEBL)

You can bet on any of these Edmonton teams at any of our recommended betting sites listed above.
