The Eskimos were 10-8 straight up in 2008 and 9-8-1 versus the Canadian Football betting odds at the sports book. The Eskimos made a number off-season moves so they should be an interesting team to follow versus the Canadian Football odds in 2009.
Canadian Football odds information tells us that Edmonton has a new head coach in Richie Hall. Edmonton picked up running back Jesse Lumsden from Hamilton to improve a very poor running attack that was last in the league as Canadian Football odds numbers show. They did lose wide receiver Jason Tucker but picking up Lumsden could be huge in terms of Canadian Football odds at the sports book. "If it works out the way I'd like to see it work out, where's he is healthy, I've got two words and they are, 'Watch out,"' said general manager Danny Maciocia, "Not only at what he can do but what the rest of our offense might do." It should be noted in Canadian Football odds that Lumsden played just nine games in 2008 and 10 in 2007. "We have a lot of potential," Lumsden said. "We have a lot of opportunity here to do something very special. That excites me. That gets me motivated to come out onto the field and work hard." Canadian Football betting information show that quarterbacks Ricky Ray and Jason Maas would definitely appreciate a running game. The Eskimos still have Kamau Peterson who had 101 catches for 1,317 yards as Canadian Football betting stats indicate. Offensively the Eskimos should be interesting to watch versus the Canadian Football odds in 2009.
Canadian Football odds info tells us that on defense the Eskimos lost Shannon Garrett and Fred Perry but they picked up linebacker Maurice Lloyd and defensive end Kitwana Jones from Saskatchewan. The Eskimos ranked third in defense last year as Canadian Football odds numbers show.
The West is far tougher than the East so nothing is a given for Edmonton in 2009 versus the Canadian Football odds. The team is definitely talented though and can be in most games this season in terms of Canadian Football betting. They may not be able to win the division in Canadian Football odds but they should be competitive on a weekly basis versus the online sports betting odds in 2009.
