Sports betting is a phenomenon at this point, with its popularity being massive around the world, with Canada being no exception. And Canadian bettors are so into their sports betting that they often do their wagering offshore, rather than doing so domestically. But, for those who are unfamiliar with the concept, why are Canadians betting offshore rather than on their own soil? The answer to that question has to do with the way that sports betting is set up in the country, and how offshore sports betting is in some ways favorable to wagering at a sportsbook in Canada. However, that could change as the status of sports betting in Canada and beyond continues to grow and evolve. For now, though, offshore sports betting is immensely popular, and it is worth taking a look at why that is the case.
