    CFL Grey Cup Odds 2019

    • Calgary Stampeders +275
    • Winnipeg Blue Bombers +300
    • B.C. Lions +500
    • Hamilton Tiger-Cats +550
    • Ottawa Redblacks +700
    • Edmonton Eskimos +1000
    • Saskatchewan Roughriders +1000
    • Toronto Argonauts +1200
    • Montreal Alouettes +2000

    CFL East Division 

    Hamilton Tiger-Cats +550

    The Tiger-Cats haven’t lifted the Grey Cup since 1999, missing out on a championship in 2013 and 2014. Hamilton should be considered the best threat in the east for CFL futures odds.

    The franchise knows that QB Jeremiah Masoli has what it takes to serve as a championship pivot, but the rest of the squad needs to step up. DB Delvin Breaux and WR Brandon Banks will help Masoli with outstanding playmaking, but the rest of the roster is far more uncertain.

    Good thing they’re in the weak east division, where the Tiger-Cats face little resistance.

    Montreal Alouettes +2000

    After the Johnny Football fiasco, maybe the Alouettes can finally focus on developing a winning team without attempting preposterous shortcuts. Montreal doesn’t have the talent on paper to compete with the heavy hitters of the CFL.

    However, if some of their younger talent have breakout years, they could squeeze into a playoff position in the east. Unfortunately, the more likely scenario is a long, difficult season for the Als. 

    Toronto Argonauts +1200

    Toronto didn’t do much of anything right in 2018 after winning the Grey Cup in 2017. The Argos allowed a whopping 560 points against, 48 more than the next worst team, the Alouettes. They didn’t win a single road game all season and had the second weakest offense with only 14 points more than the Alouettes.

    There’s little reason to believe that the Argonauts will put together another surprise Grey Cup run.

    Ottawa Redblacks +700

    Now that the Redblacks have moved on from Trevor Harris, the club enters uncertain times. Ottawa doesn’t look like they have the firepower necessary to beat the best western teams, and the Tiger-Cats feature more star power on both sides of the football.

    Their x-factor will be Dominique Davis, who has the legs to run and gun like Lamar Jackson. Without the Redblacks as strong challengers, CFL picks against the spread will strongly favor the west in 2019.

    CFL West Division 

    BC Lions +500

    BC loaded up over the offseason, poaching Mike Reilly from the Eskimos. Mike’s resume includes a pair of Grey Cups along with a Grey Cup MVP nod in 2015. He should stabilize the offense, giving the Lions a fighting chance at unseating the Stamps from their saddle.

    If BC’s manages to tighten their defense, the Lions will challenge for the western title. Either way, the Lions will be fun to watch in 2019.

    Calgary Stampeders +275

    The Calgary Stampeders have a shot at extending a dynasty after winning a ring in 2018. Calgary’s been to three consecutive finals, and QB Bo-Levi Mitchell’s still the best in the business.

    As the most dominant franchise of the 2010s, the Stamps feature the best CFL odds to win their third Grey Cup in the last six years. Their greatest challenge may be the fatigue of playing the most football of any team over the last five seasons.

    Edmonton Eskimos +1000

    There’s not much to look forward to for the Edmonton Eskimos after missing the playoffs with a mediocre 9-9 record. Losing Mike Reilly deprives the club of a longtime, all-star presence under center. Former RedBlacks pivot Trevor Harris will take snaps instead, and should prove to be a steady, but unspectacular replacement.

    There’s lots of new blood in the locker room, which gives Edmonton a shot at surprising the league.

    Saskatchewan Roughriders +1000

    An outstanding defense makes the Saskatchewan Roughriders one of the best CFL picks over the past few years, but they’ve fallen again and again to Calgary’s dominant crew. In a fascinating turn of events, the Riders decided to strike the Stamps where it hurts, wooing Micah Johnson to their defensive line.

    The only big issue for the Riders will be whether William Powell can lift the offense on his back. Will a boost to an already solid defense be enough to put Saskatechwan over the hump?

    Winnipeg Blue Bombers +300

    Winnipeg hasn’t won a championship since 1990. In a league which consists of few teams, this inability to compete for the Grey Cup plays poorly with local Blue Bombers faithful. Fans can be proud that their team isn’t as bad as most east division clubs, but the trio of Calgary, Saskatewan and B.C. will be extremely difficult to defeat. Expect the drought to extend to four decades. 

    CFL 2019 Predictions

    Those looking for CFL pick em advice should look to the western conference for inspiration. The balance of power has swung even further towards the west coast. Ottawa lost a pair of offensive stars in RB William Powell and QB Trevor Harris, who defected to the Roughriders and the Eskimos.

    The Toronto Argos and the Montreal Alouettes were the worst teams in the league last season by a significant margin, a gap which won’t close in 2019.

    Montreal should have a slightly better season without the Johnny Manziel distraction, while Toronto could improve with another year of talent development. The Tiger-Cats look like the team to beat in the east division.

    A fascinating offseason witnessed the defection of two western all-stars between rivals, strengthening the Roughriders and the Lions, but neither team is considered the favorite.

    At first glance, Saskatchewan’s added depth on offense and defense, but the team still doesn’t appear to have the elite personnel of the Stampeders.

    Edmonton snagged QB Trevor Harris, but he likely won’t provide enough of an impact for the Eskimos in a stacked west division, while the Blue Bombers don’t appear to have the elite pivot play needed for a Grey Cup ring.
