What are the Grey Cup odds 2019
It is impossible to place your bet on the CFL's final game of the season because we don't know yet which teams will make their way to the grand final. Therefore, at the moment, we only have the futures (outrights) odds that we showed in the beginning of this page. The sportsbooks "agree" that the Calgary Stampeders are the favourites to win the title this year.
CFL Grey Cup Schedule
CFL preseason runs from May 26 to June 7. The first game of the regular season is slated for June 13 when the Saskatchewan Roughriders visit the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. The 21-week qualifying stage ends on November 2, 2019.
Semifinals will be played on November 10 and the Division Finals are on November 17. We have a special page where we cover all the odds of the CFL Playoffs action. The battle for the 107th Grey Cup is on November 24, 2019.
Who is favored to win the Grey Cup
With an added incentive to win back-to-back Grey Cups, on their home field, Bo Levi Mitchell and the Calgary Stampeders are the early overall favorites.
Just beneath the Stamps in the Grey Cup Odds 2019, with a +290 price at SportsInteraction, are the BC Lions. The Cats are a reloaded squad that will be led by QB Mike Reilly who left the Edmonton Eskimos during the offseason.
When making CFL Grey Cup Predictions for 2019, bettors must consider how much better the West Division is than the East. The Hamilton Tigers Cats (+560) and Ottawa REDBLACKS (+900) are top chalk in the East Division on 15/04/19.
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 (-488) and Saskatchewan Roughriders (+735) 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.
