Welcome to Guts Sports, where you can get into the game with plenty of events spanning a breadth of sports, with some of the best sports betting odds and offers. Make an odd bet easily from your computer, mobile or tablet in advance of a game or with our live betting option during the action. Live betting delivers an exciting dimension where you can make a bet in reaction to in-game developments like an injury or change in weather. We also offer outright betting (outrights) where players can bet on the outcome of a sports tournament, rather than individual games or matches. Make singles bets, combos bet or system bets – it's up to you! As a further incentive, you may also find amazing 'Odds Boosts' offering higher odds on individual bets.
Many Canadians love the fast-paced movement, hard-hitting nature and goal-scoring finesse of ice hockey. Aside from the National Hockey League (NHL), Europe has the Kontinental Hockey League, Swedish Hockey League, NLA (Switzerland), Finnish Liiga and German DEL. Predicting the game outcome can be extremely difficult. A high-scoring team can run into a hot goalie who can shut a potent offence down. In-game injuries, penalties or fatigue are impossible to predict. A dominant team on paper does not always come out on top. Recall how Tampa Bay won the President's Trophy in 2018/19 only to be swept in the first round of the playoffs. Leverage all your sports knowledge on betting markets: winner, 1x2, double chance, draw no bet, 2-way handicap and correct score.
Basketball is another Canadian fan-favourite, that intensified after the Toronto Raptors won the 2019 NBA Championship. No other league captures the imagination more than the NBA. There are also other popular leagues like college basketball (NCAA) in the United States, the EuroLeague, and Spain's Liga ACB. Arguably, basketball stars can carry a team further than in most sports. Recall the 2016 stunning upset defeat of the Golden State Warriors to the Cleveland Cavaliers, after being down 3-1. Led by star player LeBron James, you'd have struck gold if you had called the comeback with odds of 1100. Basketball bettors can find several markets such as money line, handicap, over/under, or an outright bet, for the chance to profit on their gut feeling.
There are men's and women's singles, doubles and mixed doubles tennis tournaments throughout the year. Grand Slam tournaments include Wimbledon in London, the US Open in New York, the Australian Open in Melbourne and the French Open in Paris. Some players tend to dominate at a particular Grand Slam event. For example, Roger Federer has won 8 of his 20 Grand Slam titles on the grass courts at Wimbledon. In comparison, Novak Djokovic has won 8 Australian Open titles on the hard courts. The clay courts of the French Open have long been a nemesis for many players. Still, this has not stopped Rafael Nadal from collecting his 13th title in 2020. Tennis tournaments open up betting markets like choosing the winner, game handicap, over/under, odd/even or outrights, that test your knowledge.
If you had to choose the world's most popular sport, it would have to be soccer. In terms of international competitions, the UEFA Champions League is the pinnacle of European football excellence. Then, there's the English Premier League (EPL). Recent history can be useful when making bets. For example, Real Madrid and Barcelona have combined for 6 of the last 10 UEFA Champions League wins. While Manchester City won four titles in the last decade, one of the biggest surprises was Leister City in 2016 that won the Premier League. Pre-season bettors that picked them to win the Premier League at 5,000:1 made an absolute killing. European football (soccer) bettors have a wide selection of betting markets to exploit: 1x2, 3-way handicap, over/under, winner, the correct score, goal scorer, corners & cards and outrights.
Canadians love their football. If they're not watching the CFL, they're probably watching their favourite (NFL) or College football (NCAA) teams. Arguably, no American football position is more important than quarterback. When the Cleveland Browns' new QB Trent Green went down to a season-ending knee surgery before the 1999 regular season, the team was written off. Not many could have predicted that backup QB Kurt Warner would help lead the team to a 13-3 record before winning the Super Bowl. Anything can happen when you bet online in football, which is why bettors look for a piece of the action on outrights, handicap bets, over/under, odd/even, 1x2 and more.
We've barely scratched the surface of sports. Motorsports like Formula 1 and Nascar are great games to get your heart racing. Some Canadians enjoy a slower-paced game, which is why golf is also enthusiastically followed. Although the UFC (MMA) was only founded in 1993, this extreme mixed martial arts sport has found a place on many Canadian television screens. Although the Toronto Blue Jays are the only professional Canadian MLB team, it has not stopped baseball from developing a wide following.

A good rule of thumb in online betting is to stick to what you know, stay focused and disciplined. Remember to track your performance, good or bad, and study it carefully to see what went right and what invariably flopped. Bankroll management includes creating and sticking to a budget with money that you can afford to lose. Finally, learn to recognize when odds offer good value.
