CFL Hot And Not: Week 9 Grey Cup Futures Update
CFL Week 9 is upon us and we have hit the halfway point of the 2017 Canadian Football League season – time flies eh? Following unchanged lines prior to Week 8, the bookmakers at Bodog have shaken things up a bit this week. Though kind of strange, being as they were on a BYE week, Calgary saw their price shrink from +300 to +250 and the Stampeders have jumped past Edmonton into the Grey Cup 105 top chalk slot. The Eskimos, undefeated at 7-0-0, dropped a notch to second favorites but their +275 price remains unchanged at Bodog.
Despite a horrible effort, during a 41-2 Week 8 shellacking by Saskatchewan, BC retained their third overall chalk spot as the Lions +500 CFL Championship odds held steady. Riding a three-game winning streak, Winnipeg has joined their West Division brethren as fourth favorites as their line fell from +900 to +850. The Blue Bombers passed Toronto, who saw their price inflate from +800 to +1000 and the Argonauts are now tied with Montreal. Ottawa (+1200) plus Hamilton and Saskatchewan (+1600) are your Grey Cup longshots.

Week 8 Grey Cup Futures Update 01/08/17
For the first time this season, the bookmakers at SportsInteraction have left their 105th Grey Cup futures prices unchanged week over week. Riding high, as the last undefeated squad in the CFL, Edmonton (6-0-0) stands alone in the top chalk spot as their +275 ML is just slightly ahead of the Stampeders +300 price as Calgary sits with a 5-1-1 mark. British Columbia (5-2-0) rounds out the top three contenders with a +500 money line. Nearing the season halfway point - we can’t see anyone challenging the “Big Three” in the Grey Cup chase.
While the overall Grey Cup numbers remained steady, SportsInteraction has added East and West Division Championship prices to their CFL futures betting menu. Edmonton (+175) is top chalk to win the Wild West, followed by Calgary (+220) British Columbia (+275) Winnipeg (+600) and Saskatchewan (+1600) who have a huge pup line. Montreal (+200) and Toronto (+201) are in a virtual dead heat in the lackluster East Division followed by Ottawa (+249) and Hamilton (+450) who still haven’t won a game through the first seven weeks.

Week 7 Grey Cup Futures Update 01/08/17
One third of the schedule is now in the books and, for the first time this season, there is a new leader on the Grey Cup futures board at Bodog. Edmonton has jumped into the top spot as their price dropped from +400 to +275 following an impressive 37-26 Week 6 win over the BC Lions. Even though they rolled the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 60-1 (that is not a typo) Calgary’s line rose from +275 to +300. Despite their fairly lopsided loss in the Alberta Capital British Columbia’s third overall Grey Cup 105 chalk odds (+500) remained unchanged.
Toronto, who lost 38-27 in Saskatchewan, dropped from +1000 to +800 as the Argos are now fourth overall favorites. Winnipeg posted a 41-40 victory over Montreal but the Blue Bombers odds went from +750 to +900 while the loss moved the Alouettes line from +750 to +1000. After enjoying a BYE week, Ottawa (+1200) is just ahead of the last overall +1400 underdog line shared by Hamilton and the ‘Riders. The East continues to wallow in mediocrity as their combined record is currently 6-16. Here are the results of our CFL Week 6 picks.

Week 6 Grey Cup Futures Update 25/07/17
A five-game Week 5 CFL slate did very little to change the 2017 Grey Cup futures odds at the Bodog online sportsbook. The only moves were price increases as Hamilton (+850 to +1000) and Toronto (+900 to +1000) joined Ottawa in a tie as fifth overall favorites on the CSB Canadian Football League futures board. West Division teams continue to control the top four chalk spots and Calgary is still the King of the Castle with a +275 money line. That is despite the Stampeders currently sitting third overall in the Wild West with a 3-1-1 record.
Although they are the only undefeated team, Edmonton (+400) trails the Stamps as second chalk. British Columbia (+500) is matching the Eskimos stride for stride as both teams are riding a four-game winning streak. The Lions haven’t lost since Week 1 when Edmonton posted a close 30-27 win in BC. Winnipeg continues on “win one-lose one” run as they lost 45-42 in BC during Week 5. The East continues to be the least as they have a dismal 6-13-1 combined record. That pales in comparison to the 14-7-1 mark the West teams have posted.
CSB Money Line & ATS Week 5 Results: 4-0-0 and 2-1-2 Overall: 14-5-1 (1 NP) 10-9-2
Week 5 Grey Cup Futures Update 17/07/17
Reconfirming that the West is best, while the East is the least, the top four CFL Grey Cup favorites continue to hail from the West Division. After dropping a 30-23 Week 4 match in Montreal, Calgary saw their CFL futures line increase (+250 to +275) while Edmonton’s line (+400) remained unchanged. The BC Lions (+450 to +500) and Winnipeg Blue Bombers (+700 to +750) odds bumped up a half-buck while the Saskatchewan price was unchanged and the ‘Riders are still the overall underdogs with a +1200 Grey Cup Championship line.
West Division teams are sporting a combined 11-5-1 record while the East side is 4-10-1 and two squads, Ottawa and Hamilton, still haven’t won a game through four weeks of CFL 2017 action. Montreal (+750) is the top favorite in the East while the winless Tiger-Cats (+850) are somehow second chalk. Just ahead of the Roughriders, Toronto (+900) and defending Grey Cup Champion Ottawa (+1000) occupy the seventh and eighth seeds. Don’t forget that our CFL picks are posted weekly and we are also tracking the MLB and NFL futures odds.

Week 4 Grey Cup Futures Update 11/07/17
Stumping us again, after whacking Winnipeg in Week 3, Calgary (2-0-1) has separated from the pack some as their Grey Cup title price went from +350 to +250. Despite being off due to a BYE, plus missing their top running back and two linebackers, Edmonton lost a bunch of value +575 to +400. The Eskimos leaped over the BC Lions (+475) into the second chalk spot. After a few early blunders, and then getting crushed 29-10 at home by Calgary, the Winnipeg line still dropped +750 to +700 at SIA. The Blue Bombers are in tough in the West.
Cloaked in Cinderella garb, Toronto is back out of the Grey Cup 105 basement spot. The Argo’s started the season last, jumped up to sixth, and then fell back into basement. While we aren’t buying what they’re selling – the Boatmen have a fifth best +900 line. After every team was sporting +850 or lower odds, prior to Week 3, the Redblacks, Alouettes and Tiger-Cats are all +1000 pups now. Saskatchewan dominated Hamilton at home to get their first win but the ‘Riders Grey Cup underdog price ballooned from +850 to +1200.
CSB Money Line & ATS Week 3 Results: 1-3-0 and 1-3-0 Overall: 7-4-1 and 5-7-0
Week 3 Grey Cup Futures Update 05/07/17
Two weeks of CFL action has done little to affect the top 2017 Grey Cup favourite lines at Canada Sports Betting recommended sportsbooks. Calgary, BC and Edmonton retained their top three chalk status and their prices went unchanged. We’re slightly surprised the Stamps price did not gain some value as they appear to be a slightly lost on defense. Getting on track, with a 28-15 win in Toronto, plus a 23-19 home win over Montreal, helped the Lions and Eskimos keep pace respectively. We love the brewing fight for first in the West Division.
Winnipeg has joined the undefeated fray in the Wild West as they posted a 43-40 (OT) Week 2 win that spoiled the grand opening of Mosaic Stadium in Saskatchewan. That was the Blue Bombers first game of the season while the Roughriders are now the lone winless team in the CFL “Haves” Division. Over in the “Have-Nots” Division, Ottawa and Hamilton are still tied as top chalk in the East but their prices jumped from (-700 to +750) at SIA. The Alouettes and “Riders are tied with a (+800) line and the Argos (+750 to +850) are back as overall pups.
CSB Money Line & ATS Week 2 Results: 4-0-0 and 2-2-0 Overall: 6-1-1 and 4-4-0
Week 2 Grey Cup Futures Update 29/06/17
Prior to the 2017 CFL Week 2 action, we take a look at the current Grey Cup Championship futures lines at SportsInteraction. With Edmonton, Montreal, and Toronto posting Week 1 victories, plus Ottawa and Calgary playing to a sister kissing tie, the numbers have moved somewhat over the past week. The Stampeders (+350) line remains unchanged while British Columbia lost a little value as the Lions price dropped from (+500) to (+475) at SIA.
Despite a road win versus BC the Eskimos CFL Championship price gained value as it moved from (+550) to (+575). That move is largely due to Edmonton losing star LB J.C. Sherritt to a season ending Achilles tendon injury. Due to a 32-15 upset win over Hamilton, Toronto was the biggest mover as the Argos (+1200) money line dropped to (+750). We still view that number as “fool’s gold” as it is going to be a long CFL season in Toronto. Our four CFL Week Two previews and predictions are posted under the CSB LIVE Picks and Parlays section.

Week 1 Grey Cup Futures Update 22/06/17
Things are about to get real in the Canadian Football League. Two-a-day practices, plus two weeks of preseason action, are now in the history books. The chase to the 105th Grey Cup Sunday, that will play out on November 26, 2017, in Ottawa, begins with Montreal hosting Saskatchewan tonight. Neither the Alouettes or Roughriders are getting much love at the Bodog sportsbook as they are posted with (+750) and (+800) odds respectively. It is fantastic to have football back on the betting boards at top ranked CSB online sportsbooks.
Exhibition action didn’t move the futures needle as Calgary (+350) is still top chalk followed by BC (+500) and Edmonton (+550). Our research has the Stampeders being a slight step slower this season while the Lions and Eskimos should both pick up the pace in the Wild West. Defending Champion Ottawa and Hamilton appear to be on a collision course in the East Division as they both have a (+700) season opening CFL Championship price. Be sure to check out our CFL Week 1 picks and return here for weekly Grey Cup futures updates.

2017 Preseason Grey Cup Futures 14/06/17
Scanning the major online sportsbooks available to CFL wagering fans – bettors looking to back Calgary or British Columbia are pointed to Grey Cup future lines posted at Bodog. A “Canadian Original” Bodog is offering the best Stampeders (+350) and Lions (+500) CFL Championship preseason prices. SportsInteraction and Bet365 step in with top value on the Edmonton Eskimos (+550) as they are third chalk. It is going to be interesting to see which team escapes the brutal battles that will occur weekly in the heavily stacked Wild West.
Moving past the three West Division juggernauts, there is block of five teams that are posted with a CFL title price between (+700) and (+800). Anyone feeling Winnipeg can survive in the crazy West is getting the best line (+800) on the Blue Bombers at Bodog. Looking to capture back-to-back Cups Ottawa heads into the season with (+750) odds at most betting shops. Montreal, Saskatchewan and Hamilton are in the mix with a line from (+750 to +800) while Toronto (+1200) is posted as cellar dwelling Grey Cup pups across all betting boards.
CFL Championship LIVE Wagering Options
We love when Canadian Football League action hits the gridiron. More than just an appetizer to the NFL regular season, the CFL gives bettors football wagering options on most Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays during an exciting twenty week schedule. 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. LIVE in-game wagering lines, that change from play to play, are available throughout the 81 regular season games, the four playoff battles and the Grey Cup Final fight. Parlay betting, especially in a league that has just nine teams, is also a very popular CFL handicapping choice.
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.
