BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — There's a chance another Toronto sports team ends up playing its home games in Buffalo.

We told you in October how New York State Sen. Tim Kennedy is advocating for the Queen City to host the Toronto Raptors at KeyBank Center; now some oddsmakers are looking at how Buffalo stacks up.

The gambling site Bovada put Buffalo as the city with the third best odds at landing the Toronto Raptors for the 2020/21 season, stemming from Canada's travel ban due to COVID-19.

Bovada lists Buffalo at +500 to land the Raptors, only behind Nashville at +225 and Toronto at +350.

Other choices include the following

  • Tampa Bay +650
  • New Jersey +650
  • Kansas City +700
  • Syracuse +900
  • Louisville +1400

The NBA season is set to begin on December 22nd.
