FOX Bet Canada Sports Betting
When people see the name FOX, they typically think of the television station and sports network – not sports betting. But after partnering up with The Star Group – the sports network launched FOX Bet in 2019. With a massive connection to the sports world – especially the NFL and MLB – the FOX Bet sportsbook is quickly becoming a significant player in American sports betting.
FOX Bet is a good option for new and experienced bettors. They post odds early – great for sharp punters – and allow you to tweet custom bets – great for more casual players. While the site is missing some features and markets you find on the best Canadian sportsbooks, the early returns on FOX Bet are pretty good.
