As football seems to be creeping around the corner, north of the border, football is still going on. Check out the updated Grey Cup Odds and the best bets for week 8!
The CFL has only gotten more exciting as we enter the eighth week of action. While the favorite to win the Grey Cup has yet to change, the ranks have been rather inconsistent thus far. Teams betting odds are falling for reasons that cannot be explained. Some teams have tremendous value this week, while others continue to lose it.
Updated 2022 Grey Cup Betting Odds and Top Matches Heading Into Week 8 of the CFL Regular Season
- Winnipeg Blue Bombers: +146
Are we shocked? Winnipeg is still the favorite to win their third consecutive Grey Cup. It cannot be said enough that this team is far better than any other in the CFL.
Zach Collaros is now the current passing yards leader in the CFL. While their offense may not be consistently phenomenal, Collaros has made the most of its weapons.
Two of the top three receiving yards leaders play for the Blue Bombers. The dominant play from Greg Ellingson and the breakout of Dalton Schoen has been crucial for this team!
No team can match them defensively. Allowing 16.3 PPG, it is never a walk in the park for opposing offenses.
They also average around two sacks per game and allow the second least amount of rushing YPG. Their secondary has struggled as they allow the second most amount of air yards thus far.
- B.C Lions: +390
The Lions are back in second! After a few weeks in the third spot, the Lions finally got it together and could now run away with it!
Rourkemania had his worst game of the year last week. Considering his stat line, it shows how dominant he has been this year. With injuries plaguing this team, they seem to be playing at a high level.
The roaring defense has continually dominated their opponents. They currently are ranked first in total yards allowed, passing yards allowed, and under 90 rushing yards allowed. What more can you really ask for?
- Calgary Stampeders: +400
The Stampeders may have slipped, but they might not be down here for long. At their current odds, the Stamps present excellent value that will not be around for much longer.
Former NFL star Ka’Deem Carey has carried this offense to where it is right now. Not many RBs have taken on the work he has. Carey currently ranks first among RBs in rushing touchdowns and is second in yards per game among RBs. That is a consistent player you can always count on!
Their defense has been a brick wall! While they may not present the least amount of yards or points, they still cause statistical mayhem! They average nearly two forced fumbles per game and around three sacks per game. They cause plenty of trouble for opposing QBs.
Middle of the Pack
- Toronto Argonauts: +570
The most overrated team in the CFL is the Toronto Argonauts. Even if they are still first in the East, that will not be for long, and you should not bet on Toronto!
This offense cannot score points. Even though they are rolling on a nice two-game win streak, their point differential is -25! If that sounds like a contending team, then some serious questions should be asked.
On the other side of the football, they have been relatively solid at limited yards and points against every team. They haven’t been special, but like an AC unit, you only notice it when it’s not working.
- Saskatchewan Roughriders: +770
The Roughriders odds will likely continue to fall as most of their team is falling apart. After back-to-back losses to the Argos, it begs the question of whether or not this team can compete.
There is no outlook on the Riders right now on what the offense will look like in week 8. While RB Jammal Morrow has been a consistent net positive, you cannot say that much regarding the rest of the squad that is battling injuries and suspensions.
The Regina sack party is still doing their thing! Feasting in the opposing backfield like no team in the CFL currently! Their defense will take them places, but it won’t be easy in a very competitive West division.
- Montréal Alouettes: +1350
The oddsmakers never seem to favor the Alouettes. They seem to have found themselves in a consistent low in this tier, but they should be moving up.
The consistently good offensive play has been a major contributor to the Als overall success in the season’s early goings. Trevor Harris has done a great job under center since taking over for Vernon Adams Jr. Harris is an explosive QB, just what Montreal needs.
Their defense has lost them nearly every game. This defense has the whole island on the edge of their seat because regardless of the lead, they will likely blow it. Once that gets tidied up, this team will be smooth sailing, and you’ll be thankful you bet on them!
Down But Not Out
- Hamilton Tiger-Cats: +1875
Hamilton was able to cut it very narrow last week against BC. However, turnovers have still been a major problem for this team.
There is no way to justify betting on Hamilton as they give the ball away too often! Dane Evans is a turnover machine… he’s a quarterback, so that is VERY bad!
- Edmonton Elks: +5200
Yes, you are reading that correctly! The Elk moved up one spot in the rankings. Never thought I’d see the day. The worst team in a VERY competitive division, do not bet on them!
- Ottawa Redblacks: +5600
The capital city does not have much going for them since Jerimiah Masoli went down for the season. They are the worst team in the East, and do NOT bet on them.
Week 8 Best Bets
- Montreal Alouettes (+3) vs Hamilton Tiger-Cats
Hamilton’s turnover issues will be the reason Montreal wins. The short field position will give the Als a major edge with their high-octane offense. The Als are riding off with a huge momentum swing, and they will win this Thursday night handily!
- BC. Lions (-1.5) vs Saskatchewan Roughriders
The Roughriders seem rather inconsistent. This is a team with minimal momentum and an unclear starting roster.
The BC Lions have consistently dominated defense regardless of how talented they are. Nathan Rourke and the Lions will roar past the roughriders!
