CFL odds may favor Montreal at the sportsbook but the Alouettes are not big favorites in the East.
CFL betting odds at the sportsbook do have Montreal favored to win the East Division but just barely. The Aloulettes were 11-7 last season in a very weak division. Montreal made a number of off-season changes in personnel and in coaches as CFL betting information tells us. They will have new coaches for the offensive line, receivers and linebackers. They added DB Stanford Samuels, DT Jerome Haywood and LB Cam Hall in the sports betting off-season. They lost OT Dave Mudge, DT Devone Claybrooks, LB Dwayne Taylor, DB Khalil Carter, QB Marcus Brady, OL Luke Fritz, DB Shawn Gallant and SB Dave Stala. The key for Montreal in CFL betting will be continuing to get productive play out of quarterback Anthony Calvillo who turns 37 in August.
Winnipeg was second in the East Division last season as CFL betting stats show. Mike Kelly is the new head coach and he is just one of the many changes for Winnipeg as CFL betting information shows. The Blue Bombers added QB Stefan LeFors, DE Fred Perry, LB Siddeeq Shabazz, LB Shawn Gallant, DT Tyrone Williams, DE Riall Johnson, SB Brock Ralph, WR Adarius Bowman and a number of other players in the sports betting off-season. They lost even more players in the off-season as CFL betting information shows. Quarterback is a huge key for Winnipeg in CFL betting as Stefan LeFors looks to have the job. He may have a tough time behind a weak offensive line. CFL odds stats show that Winnipeg also looks weak at kicker.
Toronto missed the playoffs last season as CFL betting stats show as they went 4-14. They have a new head coach in Bart Andrus and a new defensive coordinator in Peter Kuharchek. Toronto added two big pieces in the off-season as they picked up LB Zeke Moreno and OL Rob Murphy so they could be improved versus the CFL odds.
Hamilton finished 3-15 last season but things could be looking up for the Tiger Cats in CFL odds. They hired Greg Marshall as defensive coordinator and assistant head coach and they hired Mike Gibson as offensive coordinator as CFL betting stats show. CFL betting stats tell us that Hamilton may not have made the playoffs since 2004 but in this division it is not impossible.
