CFL 2017 Grey Cup & Overall Season Summary
Another season of fantastic Canada Football League has drawn to a close. Congratulations to the Toronto Argonauts who posted a 27-24 Grey Cup 105 win over the Calgary Stampeders during a snowy evening in the Nation’s Capital. After opening the year as overall longshots, with a +1200 Grey Cup title futures price, it was a remarkable and unexpected end to the Argos season. For Calgary, who were season long favorites, it’s wait until next again as the Stamps were on the losing end of the CFL Championship clash for a second year in a row.
Although our final two weeks did not go well – we are fairly satisfied with our season long results. Over 86 against the spread selections, we posted a 46-38-2 record which resulted in a .535 win percentage and 420 unit profit. Our straight up numbers were even better as we went 60-24-1, good for a .706 winning mark, to earn a 1,609 unit return. Our futures bets on Edmonton, Winnipeg and Saskatchewan fell short and that reduced our return to 1,529 units on 176 picks. Hoping you cashed along with us – we look forward to CFL 2018.

Grey Cup Championship Futures 22/11/17
Grey Cup Sunday is now just four sleeps away as Calgary and Toronto are gearing up for an official East vs West CFL Championship clash. Surviving a late game surge by Saskatchewan, the Argonauts posted a 25-21 Eastern Division Final victory. In a roller-coaster style contest the Stampeders held off the Eskimos to claim the Western Division crown with a 32-28 win. After the Boatmen posted a 35-22 victory, during the Centennial Grey Cup game, Calgary (14-4-1) and Toronto (10-9-0) are meeting in the CFL Final for the second time in five years.
Understanding we have to take the good with the bad, we feel a little unfortunate that we ended up on the wrong side of both matches straight up and went 1-1 against the spread during Division Final Sunday. The Roughriders were equal parts generous, while doling out gifts, and undisciplined as Kevin Glenn tossed three interceptions while the team committed nine penalties that cost them 94 yards. After Edmonton sprinted out to a 14-0 lead, missed field goals and dropped passes cost us our Battle of Alberta Western Final money line pick.
Though unlucky during several phases of both contests – we’re fortunate the Esks kicked a controversial field goal late in the contest to cash our ATS ticket. Confidence in the ‘Riders and Eskimos has left us like a raccoon with a sugar cube as our two remaining Grey Cup futures tickets melted away with the Toronto and Calgary victories. That said, minus our CFL Championship wagers, we are still well in the green (+1750) as we look forward to the final fight that kicks off at 6:30 PM ET on November 26, 2017, at TD Place Stadium in Ottawa.

Grey Cup Division Finals Update 13/11/17
Final Four time is here – Canadian Football League style! After two CFL Semi-Final blowouts, the last strides to the Grey Cup Championship will be taken during Division Final Sunday. Toronto hosts Saskatchewan for a 1:00 PM ET kickoff at BMO Field and then Edmonton visits McMahon Stadium for a Battle Of Alberta clash with Calgary at 4:30 PM ET on November 19, 2017. The Roughriders and Eskimos both looked fantastic dismantling Ottawa (31-20) and Winnipeg (39-32) respectively while the Argonauts and Stampeders enjoyed a BYE last week.
Bodog has posted their last Grey Cup futures of the season, as the CFL Championship money line will act as the odds next week. Despite losing three straight matches, and not looking all that sharp since Labour Day in general, Calgary retains a huge edge as overall chalk with a (-120) price. Slightly strange, Saskatchewan (+333) is now second favorite – even though Bodog has posted the ‘Riders as +1.5 underdogs for their East Division Final showdown with Toronto. The Eskimos and Argonauts round out the Final Four with a (+450) CFL title line.
Anyone still without a Grey Cup 105 bet is reminded that this is your last opportunity to buy in on inflated lines currently posted at Bodog. No matter who they play, while representing the East, neither the Argos or ‘Riders will have a lower money line price than they do right now. The same can be said in the West as the Stamps or Eskimos will be favorites, with a negative straight up price, to win CFL Final fight on November 26, 2017. We went 4-0-0 during Semi-Final Sunday and our Division Final picks will be posted on or before 18/11/17.
CSB Money Line & ATS Semi-Final Results: 2-0-0 / 2-0-0 Overall: 60-21-1 / 45-36-2
Eastern/Western Semi-Final Update 07/11/17
Dress rehearsal, which began with the first CFL preseason battle way back on June 6, is over as the Canadian Football League playoffs are upon us. With Montreal, Hamilton and British Columbia all ushered into their offseason, six squads remain in the race to claim the 105th Grey Cup. Semi-Final Sunday plays out on November 12, 2017, with defending Champion Ottawa hosting Saskatchewan at 1:00 PM ET and Edmonton visiting Winnipeg at 4:30 PM ET. Calgary and Toronto will rest and get ready to host the Division Finals on November 19.
Perusing the latest CFL Championship odds, furnished by Bodog, Calgary is still top chalk. Surprised it wasn’t pumped up a little more, since they have lost three in a row, the Stamps line moved from -150 to -125. Hosting the West-Semi Final match, though injury ravaged, Winnipeg (+400 to +500) had their line bumped up for a second straight week. Toronto (+900 to +700) had the biggest move as the Argos are one win away from playing in the Grey Cup. Edmonton, Saskatchewan and Ottawa all roll into the playoffs with +900 odds.
Looking at our June 6 and September 20 futures picks, we have Edmonton (+550) Winnipeg (+450) and Saskatchewan (+900) to claim the Grey Cup. Understanding they all have huge hurdles ahead – we are most confident with our preseason Eskimos selection at this point. We closed our weekly forecasts with a perfect 8-0 mark and earned a regular season profit on our ATS bets (340) and our S/U (1,727) selections. Watch for our picks throughout the playoffs and follow us on Facebook for daily sports updates, free picks and betting advice.

Week 20 Grey Cup Futures Update 01/11/17
Dating back to June 22, we have followed the thrilling play of 77 Canadian Football League contests. Now, on the precipice of the final CFL regular season week, we are just four games away from the official start of the race to Grey Cup Sunday. Surprisingly, and largely due to minor losing streaks by Calgary and Winnipeg, three of the four Week 20 matchups have playoff implications. First overall is on the line in the East, while second and third positions, plus the East crossover spot, are up for grabs in the West. Intrigue until the end is good eh?
Prices on our futures board took some strange turns after Week 19 action. Despite losing two straight for the first since Week 2 and 3 in 2012, a stretch that encompassed 102 contests, Calgary’s title odds (+100 to -154) slipped to a new season low at SportsInteraction. That move has more to do with the Stampeders semi-final bye rest, plus Western Final home-field advantage, than the way they’ve played since Week 12. A rash of injuries, plus a 1-3 recent run, inflated the Winnipeg line (+253 to +400) and we suggest avoiding the Blue Bombers.
Slightly strange, considering their current league best four straight victories, Edmonton also gained (+700 to +800) some value. The Eskimos are not the same team that lost six in a row, prior to their current run, as late season adds like RB C.J. Gables and DB Aaron Grymes have been game-changers. Already invested in the Green & Gold, we won’t buy here but feel the Esks are the best underdog on the board right now. We are watching Toronto (+900) and Ottawa (+1200 to +1000) in the East and we have the ‘Riders (+900) Cup price covered.

Week 19 Grey Cup Futures Update 24/10/17
Appearing as though their numbers are dialled in, Bodog bookmakers moved just one Grey Cup price following CFL Week 18 action. That honor went to Winnipeg as the Blue Bombers dropped (+333 to +250) despite their 29-28 loss to the Argos in Toronto. Looking as dicey as the Calgary weather (snow, sleet and rain fell during their Friday match vs Saskatchewan) the Stampeders (EVEN) retained top chalk status. We are surprised the Roughriders (+900) didn’t drop some after they stomped the Stamps 30-7 and looked solid at McMahon Stadium.
Edmonton’s Grey Cup line held steady at +700 after they needed OT to take out the Lions. The Eskimos 35-29 victory in Vancouver erased BC from the Bodog CFL futures board as they join playoff eliminated Hamilton and Montreal. The Tiger-Cats 43-16 win in Montreal makes the Alouettes a loss (or a HAM win) from a last place finish. Getting healthy, Ottawa enjoyed a Week 17 BYE. The Redblacks, who have another BYE next week, need a win in Hamilton this week and Toronto loss in BC during Week 20 to claim first place in the East.
Second and third in the West, plus the East crossover spot, are still in play. A Winnipeg home win vs BC, or an Eskimos home loss to Calgary, earns the Blue Bombers second place and Saskatchewan will crossover if they lose to Montreal and Edmonton wins. A ‘Riders win and Esks loss sets up a Week 20 clash in Regina that will decide the final playoff positioning. We would still like to see Edmonton head East as that is the best setup for our futures tickets. We went 3-1-0 SU and 2-2-0 ATS last week and our Week 19 picks will be posted on 26/10/17.
CSB Money Line & ATS Week 18 Results: 3-1-0 and 2-2-0 Overall: 51-20-1 and 37-34-2
Week 18 Grey Cup Futures Update 18/10/17
Heading into the final three weeks of the 2017 Canadian Football League season, Week 18 has arrived. Along with it, the CFL playoff picture is considerably clearer as Winnipeg and Edmonton joined Calgary in the West Division while Toronto and Ottawa have both punched their tickets to the postseason party in the East. The Eskimos, Blue Bombers and Redblacks all earned playoff berths with Week 17 wins. Meanwhile, the Argonauts backed in as they lost in Edmonton but clinched at least second place in the East after Calgary beat the Tiger-Cats.
Hamilton gave it their all in Week 17, losing 28-25 on a last second field goal at McMahon Stadium, but the Tiger-Cats have joined Montreal on the playoff eliminated list. That leaves British Columbia and Saskatchewan fighting for the final Grey Cup playoff ticket. The Lions are hanging by a thread as a Roughriders win, or a BC loss, sends the Leo’s into what will be a long offseason. Calgary clinches first overall with a home win vs the ‘Riders and Winnipeg can secure the West second seed with a win against the Argonauts on the road in Toronto.
With all six playoff positions still “mathematically” in play - there’s lots still to be decided down the stretch. That is reflected on our Grey Cup futures board as very little changed week over week. Calgary stayed out of the negative price range for one final week as the Stamps line has hit EVEN at Bodog. Winnipeg gained a smidgen of value (+325 to +333) while the BC Lions (+2000 to +2200) Grey Cup price must be avoided as they will not be attending the dance. The other four contenders held firm in their position and price heading into Week 18.
CSB Money Line & ATS Week 17 Results: 3-1-0 and 1-3-0 Overall: 48-19-1 and 35-32-2
Week 17 Grey Cup Futures Update 10/10/17
Au Revoir Alouettes. While it has been written on the wall for weeks – Montreal is the first team “officially” eliminated from CFL playoff contention. Apart from that, not much was decided during Week 16 which was a rough one for us. Blunders carefully reviewed, we have dusted ourselves off and it is onward and upward as we head into the final sixteen regular season contests. Despite enjoying their last regular season BYE, Calgary’s CFL Championship price was chopped again as the Stampeders overall favorite line fell from +140 to +110.
Opportunity missed is the mantra in Manitoba as Winnipeg had a chance to get within three points of idle Calgary. Despite crashing and burning, during a 30-13 home loss to Hamilton, the Blue Bombers odds (+350 to +325) shrunk slightly. After they both won, Edmonton and Saskatchewan didn’t separate in the standings but their prices took dramatic turns. Largely based on the Green & White holding the first standings tie-breaker, the Roughriders line plummeted (+2000 to +900) while the Eskimos odds (+400 to +700) were beefed up some.
Blowing a 16-3 lead, during their 27-24 loss to the ‘Riders, Toronto is now just one point up on Ottawa who posted a clutch 30-25 win over the BC Lions. We are somewhat surprised that the Argonauts (+900) Grey Cup price went unchanged. Despite their win in Vancouver, plus getting QB Trevor Harris back from injury, Ottawa’s line (+100 to +1200) inched up. The BC Lions are in trouble as they fell four back in the race for the crossover playoff spot while Hamilton is one loss away from being the second squad punted from the Grey Cup chase.
CSB Money Line & ATS Week 16 Results: 1-3-0 and 1-3-0 Overall: 45-18-1 and 34-29-2
Week 16 Grey Cup Futures Update 6/10/17
Inching towards the Canadian Football League postseason, and with Week 16 upon us, we enter the final quarter of the 2017 CFL season. Even though all of the contenders won big during Week 15 action, or because of it, our Grey Cup futures board is largely unchanged. The top five teams all held their position and price – though we are a little surprised that the Calgary Stampeders didn’t slip into negative odds territory. With the Eskimos bringing in some NFL castoffs, plus other recruits, it is starting to look like a three-team Grey Cup chase.
Maintaining their domination, Calgary (+140) Winnipeg (+350) and Edmonton (+400) remain as top chalk on the Bodog Grey Cup futures board. It’s a shame we can’t get a Stampeders vs Blue Bombers Championship battle as they are both such talented and highly entertaining teams. Despite their miracle victory in Ottawa, and the fact that they sit third overall in the West, the Saskatchewan line (+1800 to +2000) gained value. Soul searching during their BYE week, and though they didn’t play, the BC Lions matched the ‘Riders title price increase.
Ragin’ on, the East Division Futility Fight continues as Toronto (+900) leads Ottawa (+1000) by three points in the “battle” for the first place BYE in the playoffs. The Argos have won three in a row and, with a newly discovered ground game, they’re the best of the least in the East. Wins by the ‘Riders and Eskimos, coupled with Hamilton (+2000) and Montreal (+5000) losses, will confirm the inevitable as the Tiger-Cats and Alouettes would both be erased from the playoff picture. Don’t forget to check out our Week 16 CFL previews and predictions.

Week 15 Grey Cup Futures Update 27/09/17
Congratulations to the Calgary Stampeders who are the first team with a playoff signifying X in the CFL Standings. It took the BC Lions getting humbled at home, 24-23 by Hamilton, and the Stamps still have work ahead to clinch a playoff bye. Calgary’s Grey Cup price crumbled a bit (+200 to +140) after they out-slugged Saskatchewan (15-9) in Regina last week. Winnipeg moved into sole possession of the second chalk spot as the Blue Bombers 100 unit drop was more than Edmonton’s 50 unit fall - the Eskimos drop a slot into third.
Breaking up the Top Five West domination, established back in Week 13, Toronto (+900) and Ottawa (+1000) have moved past Saskatchewan and British Columbia. With the Boatmen still holding a one point East lead – the Argonauts lost 100 units while the Champs gained the same amount. Hamilton (+5000 to +2220) experienced a monster line leak while Montreal’s price (+1600 to +5000) ballooned out of control. Friendly Reminder; When BOLD orange appears on this page – we have some Grey Cup “cheddar” invested in those teams.
Based on our current tickets, it would be nice if the season ended now, as we would be set up with Saskatchewan as the crossover playoff team. Wins over Ottawa and Toronto would push the ‘Riders into the Grey Cup. We’d also be rooting for Winnipeg to stop the Stamps in Calgary to win the West. Facts are facts and the Stampeders have a defence (17.7 PA per game) that’s breathing different air than the rest of the league. Feel the Red & White will ride off with the Grey Cup? You may want to back them now – before price shrinkage sets in.

Week 14 Grey Cup Futures Update 20/09/17
Both cloudy, the Grey Cup postseason races in the CFL West and East continue to deliver entertaining and profitable football action. Heading into the Week 14 slate, Calgary (+200) retained their top chalk status while Winnipeg (+450) moved into a second favorite tie with Edmonton. Ottawa (+900) and Toronto (+1000) look like they will survive the East Battle of Futility but they are behind BC (+650) and Saskatchewan (+900) on our Championship futures board. Calgary is following their 2016 blueprint – Will 2017 end the same way?
Lingering since the Eskimos lost LB JC Sherritt and RB John White (Week 1 and 3) we feel our Edmonton Grey Cup choice is in trouble. Our selection is still alive but five straight losses are concerning and a team in the West will miss the playoffs. Looking for some coverage, we are adding a two-unit Grey Cup wager on Winnipeg and one-unit on Saskatchewan. Our best case scenario here is the ‘Riders crossing over and erasing the East and then Winnipeg whacking Calgary in the West Final. Playoff hedges, at minimum, should be available to us.

Week 13 Grey Cup Futures Update 14/09/17
It was bound to happen and, with a huge talent discrepancy between the two divisions, the five Western Conference squads now own the top chalk spots on the Canada Sports Betting CFL 2017 Grey Cup futures board. Following back-to-back wins, against provincial rival Edmonton, Calgary is inching closer to EVEN odds as the Stampeders have hit a season low +200 ML price. The Stamps are the class of the CFL but there is still a lot of football left on the slate. Despite losing four straight, the Eskimos (+450) remain as second favorites.
Winnipeg appears to have the best shot at knocking of Calgary. The Blue Bombers lead the CFL with a 34.5 PPG average but their defence (31.2 PPGA) remains as a work in progress. Snapping a three game losing streak, with a 41-18 mauling of Montreal, British Columbia remains as the fourth favorite with a +650 Grey Cup line. Despite a 48-28 beat-down in the Banjo Bowl last week, Saskatchewan’s price dropped from +1000 to +900. The Green & White may be the East crossover team and a ‘Riders vs Stamps Grey Cup can’t be ruled out.
CSB Money Line & ATS Week 12 Results: 3-1-0 and 3-1-0 Overall: 34-13-1 and 26-21-2
Week 12 Grey Cup Futures Update 06/09/17
Labor Day Weekend is viewed as the “official” start of Grey Cup race. Calgary showed they are the class of the CFL as the Stampeders ripped the Edmonton Eskimos (39-18) in the first of two contests. The Stamps (8-1-1) are now three points clear of Winnipeg and Edmonton who both have a 7-3-0 mark. Saskatchewan, though they still have lots of ground to make up, have won three in a row and moved out of the West Division cellar for the first time this season. British Columbia is in free fall as the Lions have dropped four of their last five games.
After mashing Montreal (32-4) defending Grey Cup Champion Ottawa has taken over as the East leaders with a 4-6-1 mark. Toronto (4-7) and the Alouettes (3-7) are still in the “race” but they are nothing to write home about. Hamilton finally got off the schneid as they weathered a storm and beat the Argos by a 24-22 count. Despite their loss to ‘Riders, the Blue Bombers have moved past BC into third chalk spot as their price dropped from +750 to +600. The Tiger-Cats price (+1600 to +2500) was the biggest mover after Week 11.
CSB Money Line & ATS Week 11 Results: 2-2-0 and 1-3-0 Overall: 31-12-1 and 23-20-2
Week 11 Grey Cup Futures Update 30/08/17
Things are tightening up in the CFL West Division and, to a lessor degree, in the East as well. Five straight wins by both Calgary and Winnipeg, plus back-to-back losses by Edmonton, have moved the Stampeders (7-1-1) Blue Bombers and Eskimos (both 7-2) within one point of each other. BC has dropped three in a row and the Lions (5-5-0) are just two points ahead of West cellar dwelling ‘Riders (4-4-0) who have won two straight by a 95-38 count.
Defending Grey Cup Champion Ottawa (3-6-1) is back in the playoff “race” in the East as the Redblacks are one point behind Toronto (4-6-0) who own a tenuous grip on first place. Montreal (3-6-0) have lost two straight but the Alouettes are just two points behind the Argos. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have opened with eight straight losses and there doesn’t appear to be a light on the horizon. Following Week 10 action, the Eskimos (+300 to +325) and Bombers (-800 to -750) we the only changes on Bodog Grey Cup futures board.
CSB Money Line & ATS Week 10 Results: 3-1-0 and 3-1-0 Overall: 29-10-1 and 22-17-2
Week 10 Grey Cup Futures Update 23/08/17
Then there were none! Falling on the road, to a suddenly hot Winnipeg squad, Edmonton is the last team to leave the Undefeated Club as the Eskimos dropped a 33-26 decision to the Blue Bombers to open Week 9. That certainly tightens up the tough West Division as just four points separate the top four teams. The BC Lions loss dropped them into the East cross over spot and BC has a game in hand on the West as they are a week away from their BYE.
QB Ricky Ray returned to the Toronto lineup and carved up a fairly stout Montreal defense. The 38-6 thumping earned the Argos a home-and-home split and first overall in the dreadful East Division. Saskatchewan, who are 3-4-0 and eight points out first in the West, would be two points behind the Argos in the East. Defending Grey Cup Champion Ottawa (2-6-1) won their second game as they humiliated Hamilton who remain winless. Calgary and Edmonton swapping spots and slight price changes moved our Bodog Grey Cup Futures board.

Week 9 Grey Cup Futures Update 15/08/17
CFL Week 9 is upon us and we have hit the halfway point of the 2017 Canadian Football League season – time flies eh? Following unchanged lines prior to Week 8, the bookmakers at Bodog have shaken things up a bit this week. Though kind of strange, being as they were on a BYE week, Calgary saw their price shrink from +300 to +250 and the Stampeders have jumped past Edmonton into the Grey Cup 105 top chalk slot. The Eskimos, undefeated at 7-0-0, dropped a notch to second favorites but their +275 price remains unchanged at Bodog.
Even though they looked bad, during a 41-2 Week 8 shellacking by Saskatchewan, BC retained their third chalk spot as the Lions +500 CFL Championship odds held steady. Riding a three-game winning streak, Winnipeg has joined their West Division brethren as fourth favorites as their line fell from +900 to +850. The Blue Bombers passed Toronto, who saw their price inflate from +800 to +1000 and the Argonauts are now tied with Montreal. Ottawa (+1200) plus Hamilton and Saskatchewan (+1600) are your Grey Cup longshots.
CSB Money Line & ATS Week 8 Results: 3-1-0 and 3-1-0 Overall: 23-8-1 and 17-14-2
Week 8 Grey Cup Futures Update 08/08/17
For the first time this season, the bookmakers at SportsInteraction have left their 105th Grey Cup futures prices unchanged week over week. Riding high, as the last undefeated squad in the CFL, Edmonton (6-0-0) stands alone in the top chalk spot as their +275 ML is just slightly ahead of the Stampeders +300 price as Calgary has posted a slick 5-1-1 record. The Lions (5-2-0) round out the top three contenders with a +500 money line. Nearing the season halfway point - we can’t see anyone challenging the “Big Three” in the 2017 Grey Cup chase.
While the overall Grey Cup numbers remained steady, SportsInteraction has added East and West Division Championship prices to their CFL futures betting menu. Edmonton (+175) is top chalk to win the Wild West, followed by Calgary (+220) British Columbia (+275) Winnipeg (+600) and Saskatchewan (+1600) who have a huge pup line. Montreal (+200) and Toronto (+201) are in a virtual dead heat in the lackluster East Division followed by Ottawa (+249) and Hamilton (+450) who still haven’t won a game through the first seven weeks.
CSB Money Line & ATS Week 7 Results: 3-1-0 and 2-2-0 Overall: 20-7-1 and 14-13-2
Week 7 Grey Cup Futures Update 01/08/17
One third of the schedule is now in the books and, for the first time this season, there is a new leader on the Grey Cup futures board at Bodog. Edmonton has jumped into the top spot as their price dropped from +400 to +275 following an impressive 37-26 Week 6 win over the BC Lions. Even though they rolled the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 60-1 (that is not a typo) Calgary’s line rose from +275 to +300. Despite their fairly lopsided loss in the Alberta Capital British Columbia’s third overall Grey Cup 105 chalk odds (+500) remained unchanged.
Toronto, who lost 38-27 in Saskatchewan, dropped from +1000 to +800 as the Argos are now fourth overall favorites. Winnipeg posted a 41-40 victory over Montreal but the Blue Bombers odds went from +750 to +900 while the loss moved the Alouettes line from +750 to +1000. After enjoying a BYE week, Ottawa (+1200) is just ahead of the last overall +1400 underdog line shared by Hamilton and the ‘Riders. The East continues to wallow in mediocrity as their combined record is currently 6-16. Here are the results of our CFL Week 6 picks.
CSB Money Line & ATS Week 6 Results: 3-1-0 and 2-2-0 Overall: 17-6-1 and 12-11-2
Week 6 Grey Cup Futures Update 25/07/17
A five-game Week 5 CFL slate did very little to change the 2017 Grey Cup futures odds at the Bodog online sportsbook. The only moves were price increases as Hamilton (+850 to +1000) and Toronto (+900 to +1000) joined Ottawa in a tie as fifth overall favorites on the CSB Canadian Football League futures board. West Division teams continue to control the top four chalk spots and Calgary is still the King of the Castle with a +275 money line. That is despite the Stampeders currently sitting third overall in the Wild West with a 3-1-1 record.
Although they are the only undefeated team, Edmonton (+400) trails the Stamps as second chalk. British Columbia (+500) is matching the Eskimos stride for stride as both teams are riding a four-game winning streak. The Lions haven’t lost since Week 1 when Edmonton posted a close 30-27 win in BC. Winnipeg continues on “win one-lose one” run as they lost 45-42 in BC during Week 5. The East continues to be the least as they have a dismal 6-13-1 combined record. That pales in comparison to the 14-7-1 mark the West teams have posted.

Week 5 Grey Cup Futures Update 17/07/17
Reconfirming that the West is best, while the East is the least, the top four CFL Grey Cup favorites continue to hail from the West Division. After dropping a 30-23 Week 4 match in Montreal, Calgary saw their CFL futures line increase (+250 to +275) while Edmonton’s line (+400) remained unchanged. The BC Lions (+450 to +500) and Winnipeg Blue Bombers (+700 to +750) odds bumped up a half-buck while the Saskatchewan price was unchanged and the ‘Riders are still the overall underdogs with a +1200 Grey Cup Championship line.
West Division teams are sporting a combined 11-5-1 record while the East side is 4-10-1 and two squads, Ottawa and Hamilton, still haven’t won a game through four weeks of CFL 2017 action. Montreal (+750) is the top favorite in the East while the winless Tiger-Cats (+850) are somehow second chalk. Just ahead of the Roughriders, Toronto (+900) and defending Grey Cup Champion Ottawa (+1000) occupy the seventh and eighth seeds. Don’t forget that our CFL picks are posted weekly and we are also tracking the MLB and NFL futures odds.

Week 4 Grey Cup Futures Update 11/07/17
Stumping us again, after whacking Winnipeg in Week 3, Calgary (2-0-1) has separated from the pack some as their Grey Cup title price went from +350 to +250. Despite being off due to a BYE, plus missing their top running back and two linebackers, Edmonton lost a bunch of value +575 to +400. The Eskimos leaped over the BC Lions (+475) into the second chalk spot. After a few early blunders, and then getting crushed 29-10 at home by Calgary, the Winnipeg line still dropped +750 to +700 at SIA. The Blue Bombers are in tough in the West.
Cloaked in Cinderella garb, Toronto is back out of the Grey Cup 105 basement spot. The Argo’s started the season last, jumped up to sixth, and then fell back into basement. While we aren’t buying what they’re selling – the Boatmen have a fifth best +900 line. After every team was sporting +850 or lower odds, prior to Week 3, the Redblacks, Alouettes and Tiger-Cats are all +1000 pups now. Saskatchewan dominated Hamilton at home to get their first win but the ‘Riders Grey Cup underdog price ballooned from +850 to +1200.

Week 3 Grey Cup Futures Update 05/07/17
Two weeks of CFL action has done little to affect the top 2017 Grey Cup favourite lines at Canada Sports Betting recommended sportsbooks. Calgary, BC and Edmonton retained their top three chalk status and their prices went unchanged. We’re slightly surprised the Stamps price did not gain some value as they appear to be a slightly lost on defense. Getting on track, with a 28-15 win in Toronto, plus a 23-19 home win over Montreal, helped the Lions and Eskimos keep pace respectively. We love the brewing fight for first in the West Division.
Joining the undefeated fray in the Wild West is Winnipeg as they posted a 43-40 (OT) Week 2 win that spoiled the grand opening of Mosaic Stadium in Saskatchewan. That was the Blue Bombers first game of the season while the Roughriders are now the lone winless team in the CFL “Haves” Division. Over in the “Have-Nots” Division, Ottawa and Hamilton are still tied as top chalk in the East but their prices jumped from (-700 to +750) at SIA. The Alouettes and ‘Riders are tied with a (+800) line and the Argos (+750 to +850) are back as overall pups.

Week 2 Grey Cup Futures Update 29/06/17
Prior to the 2017 CFL Week 2 action, we take a look at the current Grey Cup Championship futures lines at SportsInteraction. With Edmonton, Montreal, and Toronto posting Week 1 victories, plus Ottawa and Calgary playing to a sister kissing tie, the numbers have moved somewhat over the past week. The Stampeders (+350) line remains unchanged while British Columbia lost a little value as the Lions price dropped from (+500) to (+475) at SIA.
Despite a road win versus BC the Eskimos CFL Championship price gained value as it moved from (+550) to (+575). That move is largely due to Edmonton losing star LB J.C. Sherritt to a season ending Achilles tendon injury. Due to a 32-15 upset win over Hamilton, Toronto was the biggest mover as the Argos (+1200) money line dropped to (+750). We still view that number as “fool’s gold” as it is going to be a long CFL season in Toronto. Our four CFL Week Two previews and predictions are posted under the CSB LIVE Picks and Parlays section.

Week 1 Grey Cup Futures Update 22/06/17
Action is about to get real in the Canadian Football League. Two-a-day practices, plus two weeks of preseason action, are now in the history books. The chase to the 105th Grey Cup Sunday, that will play out on November 26, 2017, in Ottawa, begins with Montreal hosting Saskatchewan tonight. Neither the Alouettes or Roughriders are getting much love at the Bodog sportsbook as they are posted with (+750) and (+800) odds respectively. It is fantastic to have football back on the betting boards at top ranked CSB online sportsbooks.
Exhibition action didn’t move the futures needle as Calgary (+350) is still top chalk followed by BC (+500) and Edmonton (+550). Our research has the Stampeders being a slight step slower on offence while the Lions and Eskimos should both pick up the pace in the Wild West. Defending Champion Ottawa and Hamilton appear to be on a collision course in the East Division as they both have a (+700) season opening CFL Championship price. Be sure to check out our CFL Week 1 picks and return here for weekly Grey Cup futures updates.

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