Hitting the three-quarter-mile-pole, in the Grey Cup playoff race, CFL Week 15 has arrived. Apart from Calgary officially punching their postseason ticket, not very much has been decided yet.

Much to the surprise of folks south of the border, football is a Canadian tradition that stretches back to the 1800s. The sport doesn't capture the Canadian imagination like hockey, but remains popular coast-to-coast. Canada loves gambling too, with the nation spending more than $4.5 billion per year on wagering. Canadians bet on football mostly through online sportsbooks, because the government refuses to modernize the industry.
A little rain must fall sometimes and Labor Day Weekend saw us “labor” to a losing record. Looking to get back on track, CFL Week 12 is upon us.

With the second half of the 2017 CFL season upon us, we have witnessed the strength of the West, plus a near total eclipse of the East, during the first nine weeks.

Week 10 begins with Winnipeg in Montreal on August 24, 2017 for a 7:30 PM ET kickoff at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium.

The choice is simple in our eyes as we will stick to wagering on contests that matter rather than matches that will feature fourth-stringers. Bigger balls start to soar when Ottawa hosts Edmonton at 7:30 PM ET on August 10, 2017, at TD Place Stadium.
