Pro-Line for NBA back in Ontario For playoffs

For the first time since the NBA came to Canada, Ontarians are about to be able bet on the league on Pro-Line.

For those of you who don’t know what proline is. it is canada’s government regulated sports lottery.

A Toronto Raptors executive said Tuesday morning that the league’s games will be available on the province’s parlay wagering service (Point Spread).
“It’s not done yet but it will probably be done for next year, maybe this year’s playoffs,” Tom Anselmi, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment’s vice-president and chief operating officer, said.

The NBA insisted that the league’s games be taken off the ticket upon the Raptors coming into existence in 1995. It was not a stumbling block for the Raptors, but a brief point of contention.

However, the league has softened its stance on gambling recently. The 2007 all-star game was held in Las Vegas, and there have been rumblings of granting an team to the city.

Meanwhile, every province in Canada other than Ontario can already bet on the league because of the absence of NBA teams. British Columbia put NBA games back on its ticket upon the Grizzlies leaving town in 2001.

Details of the agreement are not yet known, but expect some of the proceeds to go toward basketball development in the province.

There is not many ways to get any edge betting proline. Especially with the fact that they pay 2x your wager on a 2 team parlay so if you bet $100 on 2 team parlay they pay you back $200 your profit $100.00. Your getting paid 1/1 for winning 2 selections. This is TOTAL negative expected value and i don’t think anyone should be playing pro-line if they are a serious sports bettor.
I just added this article because i know alot of the viewers of the blog are canadian and might like to know about the change.
