Canadian Football betting could be a little different in 2009 with the Edmonton Eskimos challenging the Calgary Stampeders for the top spot in the league.
Canadian Football odds at the sports book still favor Calgary but Edmonton has made some solid changes that could have them in the hunt in 2009. Here is a look at the Edmonton Eskimos and their chances of success versus the Canadian Football betting lines in 2009.
Canadian Football betting on Edmonton at the online sportsbook should see them make a move this season. They hired Richie Hall and he could make an immediate difference in 2009. Other new coaches like Winnipeg’s Mike Kelly and Toronto’s Bart Andrus look to have a tougher road in Canadian Football odds. Edmonton though has some talent to work with that can impact Canadian Football betting lines including quarterback Ricky Ray.
Canadian Football betting information tells us that in addition to a new coach the Eskimos have a new running back in Jesse Lumsden. He is the key to Edmonton having a chance to win in Canadian Football betting in 2009. If he is healthy then Edmonton has a chance to do great things versus the Canadian Football odds in 2009 at the sports book. With Lumsden and Calvin McCarty, the Eskimos could have the best running attack in the league as Canadian Football betting statistics show. With a solid running attack, the Eskimos will take the pressure off of quarterback Ricky Ray, and have an offensive attack that will be unpredictable and be able to impact the Canadian Football odds on a weekly basis.
Defense is also a big key to winning in Canadian Football betting and Edmonton made changes there as well. Maurice Lloyd was brought in to bolster the defense as Canadian Football betting information shows. He had 74 tackles and five sacks last season with the Saskatchewan Roughriders as Canadian Football betting statistics indicate. Joining Lloyd are former Roughriders teammates Scott Gordon and Kitwana Jones. "I’m optimistic, very optimistic. I think Maciocia (general manager) has done a good job getting a lot of the pieces of the puzzle," said Gordon.
With a new head coach, some excellent defensive additions, a running back who can carry the load and quarterback Ricky Ray, the Edmonton Eskimos could be a team to follow all season at the online sportsbook in Canadian Football betting
