2019 Grey Cup Futures Odds
As we eluded to above, Calgary enters the summer as the No. 1 team, with many expecting them to win the Grey Cup. So much in fact, they hold 3.74 CFL betting odds to win their second-straight championship. For the Stampeders, they lost some key players in the offseason, but the return of Bo Levi Mitchell alone has them in contention to make another deep run.

Guess the Stamps are getting another Grey Cup haha #Wednesday #GoodMorning #Morning #MidWeek #StuckAtWork #BusyDay #Minus19 #WorkingOutside #ImCold #AlwaysCold #ColdToes #Stamps #Stampeders #Calgary #CalgaryStampeders #Resigned #Mitchell #BoLeviMitchell #YYC #GoodChoice #ThankYou #GreyCup #Quarterback #TSN #19 #Number19 #CFL #CanadianFootballLeague #CanadianFootball #CanadianSports
The Texas native is entering his eighth season with the team. Last year, Mitchell was tremendous running the offense. He finished with 5,124 yards, 35 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. The 5,124 yards were the second most of this career, as he finished with 5,385 back in 2016. In the championship against Ottawa, he tossed for 253 yards and two touchdowns.
Of course, the Stampeders are going to face some heavy competition to capture the glory in November. Right behind them in terms of CFL odds are the British Columbia Lions at 3.92. BC hasn’t won the championship since 2011, but they certainly have the tools to rewrite its history and win the cup this time around.
Just like Calgary, the Lions have one heck of a quarterback ready to lead their offense in 2019. Back in February, BC signed prized free-agent QB Mike Reilly to a four-year contract. It was no question one of the biggest moves of the offseason. Reilly arrives to BC after spending the past six seasons with Edmonton. Call it a bit of a homecoming for the signal caller, who started off his career with the Lions from 2011-2012.
Last year, the 6-3, 230-pound stud put up video game-type numbers for Edmonton. He threw for 5,562 yards, 30 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. Just how good has Reilly been in the CFL? In 2017, he finished the year with 5,830 yards and 30 TDs to his name. The season before, 5,554 yards and 28 scores. Yup, the man has a cannon for an arm and let’s the pigskin fly all over the gridiron.
A big target for Reilly will no doubt be veteran receiver Bryan Burnham. The 6-2, 205-pounder is playing in his sixth season for the Lions. He signed a new two-year deal in the fall after having a terrific 2018 season. He was No. 1 on the team with 67 receptions for 1,029 yards and nine touchdowns. He’ll be a big reason for BC’s success this year. The CFL Las Vegas odds have the Lions as a top team for a reason: they’re loaded on offense. Will they be able to live up to the hype?
Other teams to keep in mind certainly includes the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Hamilton Tiger-Cats. The two teams feature odds of 5.88 and 6.64, respectively. Each year, the CFL proves to be even more competitive than the season before. No teams can be ruled out of contention.
Here is a look at the most recent Grey Cup winners:
- 2018: Calgary Stampeders
- 2017: Toronto Argonauts
- 2016: Ottawa Redblacks
- 2015: Edmonton Eskimos
- 2014: Calgary Stampeders
2019 CFL Championship Predictions
Who are the favorites to win the CFL Grey Cup this year? And who are the biggest challengers? Read our predictions below.
Who is favored to win the Grey Cup
On paper, the Calgary Stampeders and BC Lions are the top dogs before 2019 officially gets underway in the CFL. However, despite the Lions adding a tremendous right arm in Mike Reilly, the Stampeders return a championship pedigree, which could lead them to win their second consecutive Grey Cup. That’s why they’re our pick to lift the trophy high in the sky in late November.
Bo Levi Mitchell has already been on two championship-winning teams for the Stampeders. He knows what it takes to lead this team to glory. It’s not only him who will be ready to power this team, however. In 2018, receiver Kamar Jorden was having an MOP-type campaign before going down with a torn ACL in early September. Prior to his injury, he had caught 74 balls for 944 yards and six touchdowns.
While he won't be back for training camp, he’s still expected to return at some point this season. He'll do so after signing a two-year contract with the team in January. With Jorden's return date still up in the air, this will provide wideouts like Juwan Brescacin (567 yards in 18), Eric Rogers (499 yards) and Reggie Begelton (488 yards) a chance to step in and be go-to threats for the offense.
With Mitchell getting them the ball, it should certainly make life on them much easier. The team will be wise to not rush back Jorden as well, because when he's 100 percent healthy, he's one of the best receivers in the league. And with Calgary expected to push for the Grey Cup in the fall, they'll need him to bring his A-game along with the rest of his teammates.
Just beneath the Stamps in the Grey Cup Odds 2019, with a 5.00 price at Spin Sports, are the BC Lions. The Cats are a reloaded squad that will be led by QB Mike Reilly who signed a contract extension during the break.
When making CFL Grey Cup Predictions for 2019, bettors must consider how much better the West Division is than the East. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are the best team in a bad bracket. In recent history the top seed in the West has needed to win 13+ games in the regular season. In the East, 10 wins should be good enough to get top spot. So this ultimately makes Hamilton's path to the CFL Final much less stressful.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers (7.50) and Saskatchewan Roughriders (8.34) have longshot odds to win the 2019 Grey Cup. Both squads play in the West, with Calgary and British Columbia, meaning whomever emerges during the regular season has to overcome three other really good teams. After that, they need to beat one of them again in the West Division Final to advance to the Grey Cup.
So in terms of CFL Division Final predictions, Hamilton feels the safest play. The Tiger-Cats appear to be beasts of the East heading into the 2019 CFL season. It is much more difficult to determine the best of the West early on.

What are the types of Grey Cup betting odds
Let's have a look at the various types of Grey Cup betting odds.
Grey Cup Point Spread
In the last CFL five seasons the Underdog has gone 4-1 against the spread in the Grey Cup Championship match. Will that betting trend continue?
At a line usually set at the price of -110, this is the online wagering equivalent of a 1/1 proposition. Picking point spreads accurately, over the long run, is the best way to be profitable at CFL or NFL football betting. Over the last 5 seasons, every Grey Cup point spread of -7 or more was covered by the underdog.
Grey Cup Money Line
Of the 4 dogs, who covered in the past five Grey Cup games, two won outright.
This approach to wagering only seems to be profitable when betting underdogs. If betting favorites on the moneyline, you need to be right way more often than you are wrong.
With underdogs the opposite is true.
Grey Cup Game Totals (Over/Under)
Over the last five seasons, the total for the Grey Cup contest has stayed in a price range of 52 to 54.5 points. The UNDER has gone 4-1 over that time period.
Grey Cup Live Betting
With recent history leaning towards the underdogs and under, if one believes that this trend is to continue then LIVE in-game online betting should be approached as such; if at any point the Underdogs line exceeds that of the pregame, OR if the total is ever higher than what was set prior to kickoff, then you will be gaining added value on those wagers. LIVE CFL betting is fantastic.
All-Time Grey Cup Champions
The Toronto Argonauts will be the leader in the clubhouse in this category for some time. During 23 Grey Cup appearances, in the history of their franchise, the Double Blue have a sparkling 17-6 record. That's serious CFL ticket cashing.
Historically speaking, when it comes to Grey Cup Betting, if the Argos play in the Final they win at a near 3 to 1 pace. Edmonton is second with a 14-9 mark.
Total Grey Cups all time (appearances):
(Active Franchises only)
- Toronto Argonauts 17 (23)
- Edmonton Eskimos 14 (23)
- Winnipeg Blue Bombers 10 (24)
- Hamilton Ticats 8 (20)
- Calgary Stampeders 8 (17)
- Montreal Alouettes 7 (18)
- BC Lions 6 (10)
- Saskatchewan Roughriders 4 (19)
- Ottawa RedBlacks 1 (3)
*it should be noted that of all the former CFL teams the Ottawa Rough Riders were the most prolific and successful winning 9 Grey Cups in 15 appearances.
