CFL Championship LIVE Wagering Options
We love when Canadian Football League action hits the gridiron.

Sunday, Monday and Wednesday matchups are also sprinkled into the path to Championship Sunday. Canuck bettors need not waste time looking for the CFL slate since the CSB LIVE odds and score feed below updates in real time constantly.
Beyond standard game day money line, point spread and Over/Under prices, Canada Sports Betting recommended bookmakers offer variety of player and team props on every clash during the CFL campaign.

Top Online Sports Betting Bookmakers in Canada
Variety is the spice of life and, when the CFL season rolls around, there are always tons of wagering options available to fans of sports and entertainment betting in Canada. That is due to the fact that Major League Baseball action is in full flight and National Football League wagering enters the fray during Week 12 of the CFL season. Football remains a focus until the Super Bowl in February.
Wagering boards also feature the Beautiful Game as the exciting Major League Soccer season rolls in tandem with the CFL and NFL. Fan favorites of bettors around the world, major International events, like the Wimbledon Tennis and US Open Golf Championships, are also prime handicapping options at the sportsbooks recommended in the Canada Sports Betting Top Five Table below.
Canuck Handicappers are reminded that where they place their wagers is just as important as the sides they bet on. To that end, Provincial sports lotteries often pale in comparison to globally respected online sportsbooks. Facts are facts and, simply stated, Canadians face a plethora of pitfalls if they choose wagering options offered on platforms like the Pro-Line betting schemes.
In addition to less than favorable odds and prices, that can tilt the table towards the house, single event betting is not allowed with Canadian Government controlled sports wagering options.
