Defense Matters in Canadian Football Betting

Canadian Football betting may seem to be all about offense but in reality the defense wins the game.

Do you know which team had the #1 defense in the league in 2008? Yes, it was the Calgary Stampeders who were the Grey Cup Champs and the best team versus the Canadian Football odds.

Canadian Football betting favors a team with a great defense so it is not surprising to see Calgary as a popular choice among online sports betting gamblers. The Stamps didn’t make many changes in the off-season so they should again have an excellent defense in 2009 that will impact Canadian Football odds.

Montreal was second behind Calgary in defense as Canadian Football betting stats show.  It was that defense that led them to the title game but they lost to Calgary.  Montreal can improve though as they still gave up a lot of yards per game as Canadian Football betting statistics tell us.

Last season British Columbia led the league in interceptions with 27 as Canadian Football betting statistics tell us.  The secondary returns but the front seven has lost four starters as Canadian Football betting information shows, including defensive star Cameron Wake.

Edmonton made a number of off-season changes on the defense as Canadian Football betting information shows.  New head coach Richie Hall was the defensive coordinator in Saskatchewan for the last eight years as online betting information shows, so he should get the Eskimos fired up on defense in 2009.

Saskatchewan is on the other side of the coin in Canadian Football betting compared to Edmonton.  They lose Richie Hall, two of their starting linebackers and two of their starters in the secondary.  Canadian Football betting stats definitely show that The Roughriders are going to fall defensively in 2009.

Canadian Football betting statistics tell us that Winnipeg is another team that is looking to improve their defense, especially in the secondary where as many as 16 players are battling for five spots.

Toronto had been an excellent defensive football team in recent seasons but they are getting old.  That has meant some big changes and it remains to be seen how those changes impact Canadian Football odds.

Hamilton has made a ton of changes to a defense that wasn’t very good as Canadian Football odds stats showed.  A total of 10 players who started at least one game on defense are gone.  Will the changes help them in Canadian Football betting?
