Canadian Football betting in the West Division starts with the defending Grey Cup Champion Calgary Stampeders.
The Stamps finished the 2008 regular season at 13-5 and ended up winning the Grey Cup against Montreal. Canadian Football odds will favor Calgary in most of their games this season.
Canadian Football betting on Calgary at the sports book is definitely going to be popular. The Stamps have virtually everyone back from last year’s squad. Canadian Football betting information shows that Grey Cup MVP quarterback Henry Burris is back and leads an excellent offense. The defense did lose some players but Mike Labinjo is back as Canadian Football betting stats show and he is an excellent lineman. Canadian Football betting information tells us that the Stampeders bring in quarterback Matt D’Orazio to back up Burris since former backup QB Dave Dickenson retired in the off-season.
Canadian Football odds on British Columbia at the online sportsbook should be interesting in the West Division this season. B.C. finished last year at 11-7 as Canadian Football betting results show and lost to Calgary in the West final. B.C. made a number of off-season moves as six players were traded or released, and five more left as free agents. That means B.C. will need to find new starters at running back, receiver, left tackle and left guard. The defense needs four new starters as well as Canadian Football betting stats show. The team did add LB Anton McKenzie, WR Jerel Myers, OL Justin Sorensen and running back Damian Sims, but overall the Lions look weaker in Canadian Football odds at the sports book.
The team that may supplant B.C. for second in the West could be Edmonton. The Eskimos could be improved in Canadian Football odds in 2009 at the online sportsbook. Edmonton crossed over in last year’s playoffs and lost to Montreal in the East finals in Canadian Football betting. Saskatchewan Roughriders assistant Richie Hall gets the job as head coach. Edmonton made some nice moves in the off-season as Canadian Football betting information shows including getting running back Jesse Lumsden from Hamilton. He is expected to take the pressure off of quarterback Ricky Ray.
Saskatchewan finished last year at 12-6 but lost to B.C. in the West semifinal as Canadian Football betting results show. The Roughriders are hoping that Darian Durant can handle the starting quarterback job this season. Overall, Saskatchewan looks weaker in Canadian Football betting for 2009.
