Hot and Not 2018 Canadian Football League Week 19 Picks

Bettors hoping for some clarity, in the 106th Grey Cup chase, received none as Week 18 action clouded the picture even more. Though extending the inevitable, Calgary needs another week to clinch first overall in the Canadian Football League standings as the Stampeders looked average during a 26-21 home loss to British Columbia. The Lions jumped out to 13-0 lead and never trailed as the Stamps suffered their first loss at home this season. A playoff concern, injuries continue to mount for the Red & White.

West standings bunched as Saskatchewan was shutout in Winnipeg and Edmonton snapped a three-game losing streak by ripping the Redblacks. While the ‘Riders have clinched a CFL playoff berth, the Green & White could finish as high as second or end up as the East crossover squad. The latter scenario is a longshot as Saskatchewan would need to lose their two remaining games while Winnipeg and BC would need to win their remaining matches. It’s all West vs West over the final three weeks of the season.

Results / FixturesCFL

Over in the East, a mini home-and-home playoff style series begins this week as Hamilton heads to Ottawa to break the first place tie as both clubs are 8-8. The RedBlacks then visit the Tiger-Cats in Week 20 and a sweep by either team would clinch top spot in the East – plus the coveted first round playoff BYE. Ottawa won the first meeting, 21-15 in Hamilton way back in Week 7, but the Cats are 5-2 over their last seven contests while the RedBlacks have stumbled to a 2-4 recent record. We feel Hamilton will win the East Division.

Our season long balance fell into the negative (-174.84) territory following our dismal 3-5 stumble during Week 18 action. Taking every loss to heart, the last five weeks have been very difficult on yours truly and StatsGuru is at a loss as to why he can’t get off the schneid. Stats is almost at a point where he wants to suggest that loyal readers should just fade his CFL betting tips moving forward. That said, a never give up attitude exists and we look to get back in the GREEN during the Week 19 Friday and Saturday doubleheaders.

Week 19 Recap: We suffered through another losing week as Hamilton choked away a 22-6 lead and lost 35-31 in Ottawa. The misery continued, as Edmonton was up 22-17 at halftime but allowed 21 unanswered third quarter points and fell 42-32 in British Columbia. A missed field goal “rouge” was the difference in Toronto not covering the -4.5 line during their 26-22 win over Montreal. We won with the ‘Riders (+8.5) but lost with Calgary straight up as the Stampeders struggled during a 29-24 home loss to Saskatchewan. 

Paraphrasing country music super-star Willie Nelson “Momma’s don’t let your babies grow up to be sports handicappers” as it can be a cruel and unforgiving profession. With the dust settled, our Week 19 disaster adds up to our worst losing week of the season as our bankroll suffered a nasty (-426.58) hit. We have two regular season weeks, plus the CFL playoff rounds, to eliminate our (-637.42) deficit. We will do our best to chip away at the RED – starting with our Week 20 picks that will be posted on October 26, 2018.

2018 East Division Grey Cup Preseason Contenders

Similar to the last couple of seasons, though all they do is keep winning Grey Cups, the East appears to have the least once again this year. After Ottawa won the 2016 Championship, with a 8-9-1 regular season record, Toronto kept the Grey Cup in Ontario after posting a 9-9-0 mark in 2017. Whether the East can pull off a 3-Peat remains to be seen. The West is set to feast on the East again this year – as evident by longshot lines in Ontario and Quebec.

Hamilton leads the way in the East Division as the Tiger-Cats are priced from +550 to +650 to claim the Cup. The Argonauts (+600 to +750) are next, followed by Ottawa (+900 to +1100) and Montreal who are the biggest CFL pup with a (+1400) Grey Cup price. Not liking anything the RedBlack or Alouettes bring to the table, and feeling QB Johnny Manziel won’t make it in Hamilton, defending Champion Toronto looks like the East cream of the crop.

Projected East Division Winner: Toronto (+200) @ SportsInteraction (10/05/18)

2018 West Division Grey Cup Preseason Contenders

Heading into the 2018 CFL season, four of the top five Grey Cup favorites play in the West Division. Hoping that three times is a charm, Calgary leads the way as top chalk (again) as the Stampeders are already sporting a minuscule (+220) CFL Championship price at the Bodog sportsbook. The Stamps had some offseason turnover as veterans Deron Mayo, Rob Cote and Josh Bell all retired and Calgary lost top running back Jerome Messam to Saskatchewan.

Three West squads are closely bunched as Edmonton and the Roughriders have a (+700) best price at Betway and Bet365 while Winnipeg is not far off the pace with a (+750) top value at Bodog. The Eskimos released RB John White, who may land in Calgary, and lost receivers Brandon Zylstra (NFL) and Adarius Bowman (WIN) while the ‘Riders improved in the offseason with the additions of Messam, QB Zach Collaros and DL Charleston Hughes (CAL). Appearing to be fairly clawless, the BC Lions are top West Division dogs with a +1100 Grey Cup price.

Projected West Division Winner: Saskatchewan (+350) @ SportsInteraction (10/05/18)

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-one week slate. Sunday, Monday and Wednesday matchups are also sprinkled into the path to Championship Sunday. Canuck bettors need not waste time looking for CFL info since the CSB LIVE odds and score feed above updates constantly in real time.

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, plus 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 plus 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.
