Bet on the Major League Baseball in Canada!
Major League Baseball (MLB) is one of the premier sporting leagues in North America, with US and Canadian teams joining together to compete for the biggest prize in the sport. There are thirty teams in total in the MLB, 29 of which are from the US with a solitary team representing Canada. The MLB was formed when the American League and the National League came together in 1903, making MLB the main baseball league in North America. The popularity of this league has helped to inspire copycat leagues all over the world, the most successful of which is in Japan, where the game has been a surprise hit. In addition to being split into two leagues, teams in the MLB are also split into several conferences, each representing a different geographical area. All teams play a total of 162 games, which adds up to a massive 2,430 games in total, one of the heaviest fixture lists of any sport and any league. To put that into perspective, the Canadian Football League spans just 18 games per team. Of course, baseball is considered less taxing than football, but that’s still a huge amount of work for the players to commit to.
Best Teams and Players
The sport of baseball is growing in Canada and a lot of that is down to the success of the Toronto Blue Jays and to the Canadian players that have set the sport alight over the years. One of the biggest years for Canadian baseball came in 1992, when the Blue Jays won the World Series. They followed this with another win in 1993. The 1993 Blue Jays success remained the last time that a Canadian team won a major North American league until the Toronto Raptors won the NBA Finals 26 years later. The Blue Jays struggled to win the World Series again. Players like Jose Bautista took them close, but managerial changes, injuries and bad luck left them languishing in the lower ranks. They found some form in 2015 when they won the AL East and made it to the Playoffs, but they are still awaiting their third World Series win, with all of Canada firmly behind them. As far as Canadian players go, some of the biggest names to ply their trade in MLB include Ferguson Jenkins, Joey Votto, Larry Walker, Jason Bay, Jeff Heath, and John Hiller. One of the most famous players to play for the Blue Jays is Jose Bautista, who smashed their season home run record.
Betting on MLB
You can watch MLB games in Canada via a number of different broadcasters. This will ensure you see as many of those 2,430 games as possible. And while we can’t help you get up-close-and-personal with these fiercely contested fixtures, we can give you the means to bet on all these games and more. Karamba CA offers a plethora of MLB betting markets for Canadian bettors. These include Outright markets, where money is wagered on the team you think will win the World Series or make it to the play-offs; Accumulators, where you add several bets together to increase the odds; and Live Betting, where you bet while the game is active. There are also many match bets to place prior to the first pitch being thrown. The most common of these bets are the Money Line and the Spread. The Money Line is simply the team that you think will win. The Spread helps to balance the odds by giving theoretical points to the outsider and taking them away from the favourite. Both these bets can be placed before the game and during it, but Live Betting markets are subject to frequent changes and suspensions.
