CFL odds are likely to have Hamilton as the underdog in most of their games again in 2009.
Canadian football betting on Hamilton simply hasn’t been very profitable as the Tiger Cats have been the worst team in the league for some time. Here is a look at the 2009 Hamilton Tiger Cats.
CFL odds at the sportsbook on the Tiger Cats could be a little lower this year although Hamilton is still going to struggle. The Tiger Cats may have found a starting quarterback in Quinton Porter and that is good news and they also have a solid running back in Kenton Keith.
Canadian football betting information tells us that Hamilton picked up offensive lineman Alexandre Gauthier in the off-season and he should help solidify the offensive line. The Tiger Cats also added Dan Goodspeed. Hamilton drafted Simon Rottier first overall so there is definitely some potential upfront for the Tiger Cats. Teams win in CFL odds by having strong offensive and defensive lines and Hamilton has made some good moves.
Canadian football betting information shows that Hamilton added defensive end Brandon Guillory, defensive tackle Matt Kirk and linebacker Otis Floyd in the off-season. They also picked up quarterback Kevin Glenn from Winnipeg who could step in if Porter struggles as the starter. The Tiger Cats did lose Jesse Lumdsen to Edmonton so it will be important for Keith to remain healthy and give Hamilton a running game if the Tiger Cats are to compete versus the CFL odds at the sportsbook. Hamilton also has Terry Caulley and Tre Smith who can backup Keith.
Not many people will want to take Hamilton in CFL odds this season at the sportsbook but there are some positive signs for the Tiger Cats. They have a solid offensive line, a potentially good running game and perhaps an efficient quarterback. The defense upfront looks solid but the secondary is a concern other than defensive back Chris Thompson.
Hamilton plays in the Eastern Division and that is a positive in Canadian Football betting. Since the division overall is weak it gives Hamilton a chance to compete versus the CFL odds on a regular basis. While the playoffs are a longshot they are at least possible in this division for the Tiger Cats. Hamilton can impact the CFL odds and be one of the surprise teams in the CFL in 2009.
