Canadian Football Betting - Top Players and Teams

Canadian football betting excitement begins with the start of the two week preseason on June 13 as preparations are already underway with the CFL odds.

Canadian football betting is one of the most exciting choices on the sports wagering board as handicapping the Canadian football odds is loaded with fun and excitement.

The defending Grey Cup Champion Montreal Alouettes are the first team that many handicappers will look at when handicapping the Canadian football betting line.  Montreal was dominant last year with a 15-3 straight up record and ranking number 1 on both total offense and defense.

Quarterback Anthony Calvillo threw for 4647 yards last year with 26 touchdown passes and just 6 interceptions.  His top receiver was Kerry Watkins who had 82 catches for 1243 yards and 8 touchdowns.

Avon Cobourne was another asset with the Canadian football odds last year for Montreal as he ran for 1657 yards and 15 touchdowns.  Montreal has played in four Grey Cup games since 2002 with two wins.

The Saskatchewan Rough Riders are another popular Canadian football betting commodity and were the runners up in the Grey Cup last year as the lost the title game to Montreal 27-28 but covered the spread as 9.5-point dogs.  Quarterback Darian Durant threw for 4155 yards and 21 touchdown passes last year.

The Rough Riders have been one of the most consistent teams in the league and have played in two out of the last three Grey Cup finals with a win in 2008.

The Hamilton Tiger Cats were the most profitable team last year with the
Canadian football betting line as they went 12-5 against the spread to go with a straight up record of 9-9.  The Tiger Cats were the third most productive team on offense in the CFL last year.

Ricky Ray of the Edmonton Eskimos is one of the biggest and most respected names among those betting Canadian football.  He threw for 4976 yards last year with 22 touchdown passes as Edmonton was beaten out by Calgary in the playoffs.  Ray has passed for over 5000 yards in a season in three out of his five years as the starter.

Ray’s favorite target was Fred Stamps, who lit up Canadian football betting with 1396 yards and 6 touchdowns for his best season out of the three he has played in the CFL.
