Canadian Football Betting - Montreal Looks to Repeat

Canadian Football betting action begins in earnest on Thursday, July 1 with the opening kickoff of the regular season with the Canadian Football odds.

Canadian Football betting fans will again look to the Montreal Alouettes as the team to beat with the Canadian Football odds and contend for another Grey Cup title.

The Alouettes are coming off a phenomenal 2009 season in which they went 15-3 straight up and 11-6 against the spread en route to the championship.  It was Montreal’s first Grey Cup title in seven years.

Montreal head coach Marc Trestman was named CFL coach of the year in just his second year on the job and leads a team that is loaded with talent starting with an explosive offense that was ranked number one overall for yardage, passing and scoring in the league. 

Montreal’s offense boasts a total of eight all stars from last year that are all returning for the 2010 campaign. 

The offense begins with 38-year old quarterback Anthony Calvillo who hit on 72 percent of his passes for 4639 yards and 26 touchdowns.  He was named the CFL Most Outstanding Player for the second straight season.

Another veteran, wideout Ben Cahoon, returns for his 13th season.  Last year Cahoon showed no signs of slowing down has he had a CFL best 89 catches for 1031 yards and 2 touchdowns. 

Calvillo will have two other all star receivers to throw to in Jerry Watkins and Jamel Richardson, who each had over 1000 yards last year.  It all adds up to be the most dangerous passing attack in Canadian Football betting.

Montreal also had the top ranked defense in the CFL last year and figures to again be strong.  The Alouettes defensive strength begins with a secondary that features two all starts with Matthieu Proulx and Mark Estelle. 

Linebacker Chip Cox is another key asset with the Canadian football betting line as he had a team best 81 tackles last year. 
Yet another all start, Anwar Stewart, leads the defensive line for the Alouettes and boasted 9 sacks for 2009.   John Bowman had 12 sacks for Montreal to make the dynamic duo one of the most dangerous for quarterbacks to face in the CFL.

Montreal is a complete team with a highly respected coach.  The only question is whether or not they will be able to bring board value as the public will likely be on them early and often.
