With the recent influx of elite talent infusing the Canadian roundball squad, the future has never looked brighter for the national basketball program, which performed well at the 2015 Pan Am games, finishing 2nd in the tournament. This was their first top three finish in an international competition since the 2001 Tournament of the Americas, which makes Canada basketball team betting lines one of the fastest rising odds of winning among international squads.

How To Bet On The Canada Basketball Team
Many NBA players participate in huge events such as the Olympics and the FIBA international tournament that pits the top international squads against each other. For the most part, Canada hasn’t had the same level of NBA participation from their nation players, compared to other FIBA countries. As a result, Canadian basketball teams have had difficulty competing against powerhouses such as the USA, Spain, Argentina and other Euro and South American squads.
However, the national program appears to be rejuvenated with the addition of the legendary Steve Nash taking the reigns as the general manager. Over the next decade or so, stars such as Andrew Wiggins and NBA ring winners like Cory Joseph look to significantly boost the competitiveness of Canada on the world stage.
When you bet on single international NBA matches, you’ll mostly see the numbers published as moneylines, which are presented as positive and negative odds. If team Canada has a line of +825 when playing against the United States with a moneyline of -900, you’ll need to bet $100 to win $825 on the Canadian national team. On the other hand, since the U.S. national team is much more likely to win, you need to put down a greater initial bet of $900 to win only $100.
Although the United States is a clear favourite for any and all international basketball matches, upsets do happen, especially when U.S. NBA stars opt to rest in-between seasons. Even though the ‘B’ squad still boasts incredible, top flight talent, even a slight change in the lineup opens up a greater possibility of an underdog like Canada pulling off the win.
