After years of debate and hard work, the Canadian Football League finally returned to Ottawa in 2014 – with the franchise being named the Redblacks. Their first two seasons have been two completely different tales, as the first ended in a last place finish and the second ended in a Grey Cup berth. No matter what happens in their third season and beyond, it looks like the Redblacks are here to stay. Even though their history is brief, Ottawa Redblacks odds are readily available for every game through the season.

Bet On Ottawa Redblacks Games
The Redblacks may have only joined the Canadian Football League in 2014, the city of Ottawa has a long history of football. Their first team, the other Rough Riders played for over 120 years and won multiple Grey Cups. The second iteration of an Ottawa team – the Renegades – lasted only three seasons and failed to make much of an impression on the fans. With theirquick success – as in making the Grey Cup in their second season – the Redblacks have ensured themselves a better fate than the Renegades.
With a very brief history, the Redblacks have not had much time to develop any big rivalries, but there is definite potential for some to come about over the next few seasons. Montreal comes to mind, as the two city are about two hours apart – and Ottawa being located on the Quebec border should mean a lot of Alouettes fans at TD Place when they play. After losing a close Grey Cup game to Calgary by a score of 26-20, Ottawa fans should see some of their extra passion go towards cheering against the Stampeders when they come to the Capital.
Since Ottawa’s history is limited and they have yet to play any team ten times – something that will not happen until late in 2016 season, by mainly will start happening in 2017 – there is not a large amount of information for bettors to check out before they start making wagers. Bettors should key in on the schedule, injuries and quarterback play. The biggest different between Ottawa’s first two seasons was the significant improvement the Redblacks had from football’s most important position.That quarterback was Henry Burris and at over 40 years old, the Redblacks will need to start looking for a new starter, sooner than later.
