NBA Playoff Betting Canada

NBA Playoff Brackets

The fastest-growing sport in Canada is basketball. Consider this - the first Toronto-born player chosen in the 2019 NBA Draft went third overall. The first Toronto-born player selected in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft went 24th overall. 

Canada's passion for basketball is increasing by leaps and bounds and so is the desire to wager on NBA games. Lucky for you, we've got everything you'll need to become an NBA playoff prediction machine right here at your fingertips. 


Want to bet on the NBA playoffs? The opportunities and options are endless. You can play a straight moneyline on a game. Perhaps you'd prefer to wager on a point spread. Or maybe, you're a fan of betting on whether the total will go over or stay under.

But that's merely scratching the surface of the wagering opportunities available on a single game. Live betting means that the action never stops. Player and team props provide you with the chance to narrow your focus down to wagering on one aspect of an NBA playoff game. It could be a player's total rebounds for the night, or a head-to-head wager on which player will score more points in the game.

Game Previews

NBA Playoff Predictions

Prior to making a wager on the NBA playoffs odds, you'll want to do your homework. Peruse the game previews available at your favorite sportsbook to see exactly what's happening in that particular series. Is there a player carrying the hot hand?

Is someone limping and questionable for the game, or maybe an injured player is on the brink of returning to action? In sports betting, information is king. The more you know, the more astute and successful your wagering will be.


As soon as one NBA season concludes, the leading sportsboooks will be quick to issue the next season's championship odds via a futures wager. These odds will tend to move around dramatically in the futures book during the offseason as player personnel moves continually reshape the rosters of teams. 

Prior to each NBA playoff series, the sportsbooks will also issue odds predicting the outcome of each series. These NBA playoff series odds will fluctuate from game to game as results and other factors impact the way each series is progressing.

Via a key injury or the loss of home-court advantage, a team can quickly go from heavy favorite to underdoog depending upon the circumstances unfolding in a series.

Power Rankings

NBA Playoffs Moneyline

The NBA power rankings are issued at the beginning of each week and can draw you a picture of where the league stands at that particular juncture in time. 

Are teams climbing the rankings? Are other teams trending downward? What are the reasons causing these alterations? It's all there in black and white and can certainly influence how you'll wager on upcoming games.

NBA Betting Sites

Once you've decided that betting on the NBA is something that interests you, the next step is to determine how and where to place your wagers. Comfort is essential when dealing an online sportsbook. You'll want one that's trustworthy, reliable and informative. 

The partner sportsbooks at Canada Sports Betting are the best in the business, the industry leaders. Choose any one of them and you won't go wrong. 


With 30 teams, the NBA certainly presents you with a plethora of wagering opportunities on a daily basis. Knowing the ins and outs of each team will prove vital if successful NBA playoff predictions are what you have in mind. 

Which teams are dominant at home? Which teams are road warriors, capable of winning at home or away? Matchups are also essential to assess. Does one team's style present a unique problem that their opponent struggles to solve? Is there a team with a long winning streak against its opposite number?

They are all keye elements when deciphering the NBA playoff odds

All sportsbooks will offer you the chance at a perk upon signing up to their site. Some will entice you with no-risk first bet opitions, while others will dangle matching bet money, often up to 100 percent of your first deposit upon signing up.

What are the terms and conditions of these bonus offers? Is there a rollover requirement before you cash in a winner? Are there any restrictions on the type of bets you an make with these promotions.

How To Find The Best NBA Playoff Odds

NBA Playoff bracket predictions for 2019

Another factor will be to know what sorts of NBA markets are offered by each of the books.

Some will be more traditional, offering straight moneyline, total and spread wagers. Others will delve deeply into live betting and props. It all comes down to what type of wagers interest you as a bettor.

Bet365 and Sports Interaction are sportsbooks known for their variety of prop wagers. Bodog, on the other hand, tends to focus on straight wagers and limits the number of props on offer.

Your best bet is to contrast and compare a number of different sportsbooks to see where the odds are most in your favor, and to determine which of the many sportsbooks offers the type of wagers you want to play.

Where To Find The Most NBA Odds

The odds tend to differ slightly from sportsbook to sportsbook, so that's always a factor, because you'll want to get the best bang for your betting buck. And some sportsbooks are quick to post their NBA basketball playoff odds, while others wait until the last moment. 

Again, your wisest move is to invest some time and study into reviewing several sportsbooks to see which one is best suited for your needs.

If you're looking for quick odds, 888Sport is known to post their lines rather quickly on game day.

Bodog tends to be more diligent in doing their research before posting gamelines but as the standard bearer for the industry in Canada, you know they will always do right by you. 

Which Sportsbook Has The Best App For NBA Playoff Odds?

The more we advance technologically, the more we utilize our smartphones. And that's no different when betting on the NBA playoffs. Suppose you've got to run some errands but you're waiting to hear if an injured player is going to be good to go as you await to play your next NBA Playoff Series betting line.

As you're traversing the produce aisle at the grocery store, you get an alert that this player is out for the next game. You'll want to get your bet down quickly, before the lines have time to adjust accordingly. This is where your smartphone will save the day.

At Bodog, their mobile app enables you to wager via iPhone, Android, Blackberry or tablet. You'll get the same NBA Playoffs odds as you would at their website, and have access to all of the same wagering opportunities.

SportsInteraction has contiunally improved its mobile app to the point where it now rates among the best of any Canadian online betting site. It's accessible by iPhone, iPad, Blackberry and Android devices.

Who Will Win the 2020 NBA Finals?

NBA Playoff bracket predictions for 2019

The NBA Championship odds for 2020 are already out, and you'll find with the vast roster turnover since the Raptors won the 2019 title, there's been seismic movement among the top contenders in the NBA Playoff predictions.

One factor to keep in mind when wagering on the NBA Playoffs betting line is that on the hardwood, the longshots rarely come in. Eleven of the last 12 NBA champions were either one or two seeds in the conference entering the postseason.

The NBA Championship odds for 2020 are displayed in our NBA Finals page.

NBA Playoff Predictions

NBA Playoff Odds 2019

After the wildest summer in years in terms of player movement, the NBA looks to be a wide-open league for the first time in many seasons. The perennially-contending Golden State Warriors, who've been to five straight NBA Finals, have been weakened through departures and injury. 

The Los Angeles Clippers added Paul George and 2019 NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard. The Los Angeles Lakers picked up Anthony Davis, and the Houston Rockets acquired Russell Westbrook, giving them a 1-2 punch of NBA MVPs and scoring leaders in James Harden and Westbrook.

In the East, the defending champion Toronto Raptors will be weakened minus Leonard, while the Brooklyn Nets upgraded via the additions of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. 

From a betting standpoint, with so many potential contenders, the future book odds on the 2020 NBA Finals should certainly work in your favor.
