CFL odds are interesting to look at before the season actually begins.
Online betting gamblers can actually wager on futures in CFL betting on which team will win the Grey Cup. Here is a look at future CFL odds for the 2009 season.
CFL odds begin with the defending champion Calgary Stampeders. The Stamps are the heavy favorites in CFL betting odds to repeat their 2008 title. They are listed at 2-1 which is very low considering anything can happen in CFL betting. After Calgary it goes up quite a bit to the next team in CFL odds. British Columbia is listed at about 4-1 in future CFL odds. They are followed by Edmonton, also at about 6-1. All three of these teams are in the stronger Western Division.
The first team that gets any attention in the Eastern Division is Montreal who is listed at 7-1 in CFL odds. Toronto and Saskatchewan are next at 10-1 followed by Winnipeg at 13-1. Hamilton is the longshot in CFL odds at 14-1. Montreal made the Grey Cup last year but lost to Calgary and not many gamblers want to back the Alouettes to make a repeat appearance in 2009. It would not be a surprise to see their odds go up.
What is interesting to consider with future CFL odds is the closeness of the four teams in the Eastern Division. Montreal is 7-1 which is nothing special in CFL odds but the other three teams are closely bunched with Toronto, Winnipeg and Hamilton at 13-1 or 14-1. With Hamilton having such a poor 2008 season you would think their CFL betting odds would be higher but many online betting gamblers are predicting a much better year from the Tiger Cats. Not many people are sold on Montreal so taking a flyer on Hamilton or even Toronto doesn’t look to be a bad idea in online sports betting.
Calgary is definitely the favorite in future CFL odds but rarely does a team get huge attention in the CFL in back-to-back seasons. What makes Calgary unattractive is that they play in the tougher Western Division and they have low CFL odds. With future online sports betting wagers it is usually a good idea to get double-digit odds. That will definitely not be the case with Calgary or with most of the teams in the CFL since it is only an eight team league.
