Betting is indeed absolutely legal in the province of Ontario. With over 14 million citizens, Ontario is the most densely populated province in Canada and provides ample opportunity for sports betting fans to place wagers. If it wasn’t legal, Proline would not exist.

PRO-LINE is a betting system that allows users to place wagers on sports events. Bettors select outcomes for 3 to 6 games with a minimum wager of $2 or a maximum wager of $100, with bettors often placing wagers somewhere in between.
You may have heard the term push elsewhere in sports betting and it refers to a situation when the combined total score of both teams matches equal to exactly the over/under number. In this circumstance, the event would be a push and the odds for the event are assigned to a value of 1.00.
For those fans of Ontario, sport might be interested in betting on said teams. But who are they? Below is a list of professionals sports teams, not including pro teams from Detroit or Buffalo:
Hamilton Tiger-Cats (CFL)

You can bet on these teams through Proline.
For PRO-LINE events that are cancelled, players are supported by automatically reverting the odds back to 1.0 and the selection being counted as correct. If you are correct with all the other bets on your slip, then you still win.
