London is a great city that is full of avid sports fans. London has the Knights directly in the city, which is always one of the hottest tickets in the OHL. For top professional sports, London residents have several options being just two hours from Toronto, Detroit or Buffalo.

Sports betting has grown in popularity over the past decade, and the same can said about London. It is now very common for London residents to place sports wagers at online betting sites, and now that sports betting is legal in the regulated Ontario market any stigma that was attached to sports betting in the past, has completely disappeared. Below I will recommend three betting sites for London, Ontario residents and look at the offline betting options in the city.

All three of the above sportsbooks are licensed by iGaming Ontario to operate in the regulated Ontario sports betting market. is our #1 rated betting site for Canadians.

Offline Sports Betting in London

Offline sports betting is available to London, Ontario residents through Proline, which is the Ontario government’s sports betting lottery. The odds offered through Proline are not player friendly (see comparison with the above betting sites here).

I do NOT advise Ontario residents to bet through Proline. Instead, I suggest placing your sports bets through one of the betting sites I’ve listed above. The odds are far better (most important reason), and with the betting sites now regulated by iGaming Ontario everything is very above board. The sites are easy to use and deposits/withdrawals are generally processed instantly.

Western Fair Raceway and Gateway Casinos

Western Fair Raceway is located in East London. Live harness racing takes place on the track three nights a week during the racing season (Monday, Tuesday and Friday). Simulcast betting is available throughout the year from about 11:30am to 11pm most days.

Gateway Casinos London is located in the same building as the racetrack. The casino offers over 700 slot machines, as well as table games daily from 12pm to 4pm.

**Neither Western Fair Raceway or Gateway Casinos London accept sports wagers. To bet on sports you should do so at one of the betting sites recommended above.

Sports Teams in London

  • London Knights (OHL)
  • London Lightning (National Basketball League of Canada)

Toronto, Detroit and Buffalo are all a little over two hour drive from London, so London residents have options for top level professional sports nearby, but it’s not a quick trip.
