    2016 Grey Cup Odds : Futures Preview And Prediction

    2016 Grey Cup Odds : Futures Preview And Prediction

    Almost any given season any team can win the Grey Cup – making picking a winner quite the challenge. With two-thirds of the league making the playoffs, sometimes getting hot at the right time is as important as roster talent and coaching. 

    CFL Grey Cup Futures Odds

    Futures for 2016 Grey Cup outright betting odds will begin to pop up right after the season is all wrapped up, but any savvy sports fan knows to take a little patience and let the offseason unfurl and maybe even longer before placing any serious wagers. Now that all that has come and passed there is enough information to go off of before making a bet for the Grey Cup that bettors should be satisfied with their decision.    

    Grey Cup Futures

    The odds give a cluster of teams a chance with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers being the only legitimate longshot. Even the Saskatchewan Roughriders – who rebuilt their entire roster after their worst season in 30 odds years – have competitive odds to win it in 2016. Calgary Stampeders the reigning champs and the Edmonton Eskimos their bitter rivals have both been getting lots of love from the bookmakers, but overall there is not much at first glance to separate the top half dozen teams, so it is the best time to dive into some more in-depth analysis.

    HAMILTON TIGER-CATS +500 (over the BC Lions)

    After finishing runner-up in 2013 and 2014 as well as coming close in 2015 after another strong season, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats are finally ready to end their Grey Cup drought which dates all the way back to 1999. After a smart and production offseason that saw the team add some key veterans including former Toronto Argonauts and the 2012 league MVP Chad Owens, the Ti-Cats have assembled a top-tier roster hungry to bring the Grey Cup back to Hamilton.

    The BC Lions have a 19-year playoff streak and should be able to keep it alive in 2016. The team – led by quarterback Jonathan Jennings - has a wealth of offensive talent and some of the best general management in the league. A key factor in the Lions making – and potentially winning the Cup – is the return of head coach Wally Buono. Through his first few games back the winningest coach in CFL history has the Lions clicking on all cylinders. BC is a smart pick but the Ti-Cats are due for their first Grey Cup of this Millennium.
