CFL Betting Adds to a Wealth of Sports Betting Action!

March 11th, 2019 CFL Football, Sportsbook

To begin with the gambling public has shown an insatiable appetite for football wagering action.  As a matter of fact, millions of football fans simply can’t get enough.  And that is where the Canadian Football League comes to mind.  Indeed,CFL Betting serves as an outlet for gamblers to have weekly action on a credible well-established league.  At the beginning the CFL will run from June 13 through November 24 for the 2019 season.  Likewise, the CFL offers an exciting brand of offensive football.  Three downs instead of four make teams aggressive and fans thrilled.

What is the difference?

On the whole CFL Betting has several dynamics that set it apart from American pro and college football.   Specifically, the Canadian game has 12 players per side instead of 11.  The field is much wider than the American version of football.  Most important of all is the three-down rule.  This gives CFL offenses much less margin for error or plays to waste.  Contrarily in the American version teams can use one of their four downs to set up a play for a future down.  But in the Canadian game there is much less opportunity for that.

Past Seasons Records

Last year the Calgary Stampeders won the 106th Grey Cup 27-16 over the Ottawa Redblacks.  Calgary Quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell was named to the All-Star team. Further, Mitchell won his second ever CFL Most outstanding player award.  Mitchell went to the CFL after being undrafted out of Eastern Washington.  Indeed, he has thrived at Calgary where he has won two Grey Cup championships and set the CFL record for most consecutive wins by a starting quarterback.  For the 2015 season Mitchell threw for over 5100 yards with a 35/14 touchdown to interception ratio.

Dave Dickenson

Further adding to the sportsbook success of Calgary is head coach Dave Dickenson.  Dickenson has thrived in the CFL with a total of five Grey Cup championships as a player and coach.  Overall Dickenson has been a smashing success with the Stampeders.  His career coaching record is 41-11-2 with three Grey Cup championship appearances.

Marc Trestman

Account of some critical coaching changes will CFL Betting take on different dynamics for 2019.  On the while the biggest coaching change took place with the Toronto Argonauts.  Marc Trestman, who led the Argos to the 2017 Grey Cup championship, was fired after an epic 2018 collapse.  Indeed, the Argos won only four games and finished in last place.  Corey Chamblin replaces Trestman and was the Toronto defensive coordinator for their Grey Cup championship two years ago.  Chamblin won a Grey Cup as a head coach with Saskatchewan in 2013.

Wally Bruno

Meanwhile an iconic and long serving coach announced his retirement.  Wally Bruno formally retired as head coach of the British Columbia Lions after 12 seasons and two Grey Cup titles.  Additionally, Bruno won three Grey Cup championships with the Calgary Stampeders. Most important of all is that Bruno retired with the most wins of any head coach in CFL history with 282.   Compared to Bruno new head coach DeVone Claybrooks has large shoes to fill.

CFL betting

In the first place CFL betting is quite similar to other forms of football.  Accordingly, you can get action on sides, totals, halves, money lines, parlays, teasers, futures, props and more.  In contrast to many other sports the CFL offers as plethora of fun and excitement.
