5.8 Million Canadians Watched The Raptors-76ers Game 7, Breaking Viewership and Betting Records
SAN JOSE, Costa Rica - May 24, 2019 - PRLog -- The Toronto Raptors have clinched the conference finals spot for the first time in three years, and Canadians have their eyes set on the NBA Championship title. The Raptor's Game 7 against the Philadelphia 76ers gathered a viewership of over 2.2 million Canadians and finished with a buzzer-beating shot that bounced off the rim four times. PayPerHead.com, the leading sportsbook software company in the world, is announcing a record amount of Canadians placing bets on the Raptors and creating their own sportsbooks exclusively for the Raptor's 2019 playoff games.
Nate Johnson, Product Manager of PayPerHead.com, states that a record amount of Canadians are calling the PayPerHead sales team and creating their own sportsbooks for the next few rounds left in the NBA Playoffs. "The traffic on our website from Canada has been consistently growing over the past few weeks. As the playoffs continue to unfold for the Raptors, more Canadians are looking towards playing wagers on the games."
According to TheScore.com, an average of 2.2 million Canadians watched the Raptor's-76ers game seven. NBA Canada has also announced that the total Canadian viewership during the second round was up 73 percent from 2018. Earlier this week, the NBA also stated that an estimated 5.8 million Canadians saw "some portion" of the Raptors-76ers Game 7. While viewership for Raptors playoff games continues to grow in Canada, a staggering increase of Canadians are also looking to place money on their favorite NBA team to win the conference finals and beyond.
"Canadians have limited options when it comes to placing bets on sports. Much of the country has strict gambling laws, inhibiting people from placing bets on the games that they watch the most," said Johnson. "We're seeing a vast increase of leads becoming Canadian PayPerHead Agents, which leads us to believe there is a large demand for more accessible sports betting."
"If the Toronto Raptors overtake the Milwaukee Bucks during the Conference Finals, PayPerHead is expecting industry records to be significantly broken."
