The Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) and the BetVictor Ontario sportsbook have announced a national partnership that makes BetVictor the league’s official sports betting partner for the upcoming 2023 season.
Things get going May 24 when the Ottawa BlackJacks host the 2022 champion Brampton Honey Badgers.
On its website, the CEBL, which is heading into its fifth season, says it is “a league created by Canadians for Canadians.”
There are 10 teams in the league including four in the home province of Ontario sports betting online and retail operators.
How Many CEBL Players Are Canadian?
According to the CEBL, 71% of its 2022 rosters were comprised of Canadian players.
Players bring experience from the NBA, NBA G League, top international pro leagues, the Canadian national team program, top NCAA programs and U SPORTS.
Former CFL player Mike Morreale is commissioner and co-founder.
BetVictor, licensed and regulated as an Ontario sportsbook apps company, is offering odds for CEBL 2023 outright winner. The Niagara River Lions are on top at 4.5 decimal odds, followed by Brampton at 5.5, the Edmonton Stingers at 6.0, the Scarborough Shooting Stars at 7.0 and the Vancouver Bandits at 8.5.
“This partnership with BetVictor will not only offer cutting-edge online gaming experience to users but also increased awareness of the CEBL brand globally,” Morreale said in a statement. “We look forward to bringing this personalized sports betting experience to basketball fans across Canada for all 107 games this season.”
