Bet On Toronto Argonauts' Games
The oldest Canadian Football League team, the Toronto Argonauts, actually predate the Grey Cup with the team beginning operations in 1873. Since the Grey Cup started in 1909, no team has captured more titles than the sixteen Toronto has won. The Argos are an impressive 16-6 in the big game, and while 22 is not the record for appearances, it shows the Boatmen know how to handle themselves on the big stage.
The stage in Toronto is not as big as it used to be. As of 2016, the Argos have moved out of their long-time home to BMO Field. BMO Field is a smaller venue than the Rogers Centre – by about 15,000 fans, give or take – but the Argos had difficulties over the past filling up the Rogers Centre.
The half-filled stadium created a poor atmosphere for football and the move to a smaller, outdoor stadium should help the Argos capture a better home-field advantage.
Home field advantage is not everything, though, especially when the team’s biggest rival is within an hour’s drive. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are Toronto's biggest rival and opponent on Labour Day – a weekend that showcases the CFL's biggest rivalry games. The Argos have the all-time advantage, but over the past half-decade, the Ti-Cats have been the more successful team.
Watch the stadium – either in Toronto or Hamilton – be filled with a mixture of both teams fans. Toronto and Montreal share a common hatred for each other as they are frequent foes in the CFL playoffs. Most teams do not like the Argonauts as they come from Toronto and are the most successful team in league history, making just about every Argos game entertaining to watch and worth wagering on.
