With week three in the books, we are finally getting to see some of the more competitive teams in the CFL. Since last week, there has been a major shift in the odds for the Grey Cup race.
Updated 2022 Grey Cup Betting Odds Heading Into Week 4 of the CFL Regular Season
TIER 1: The Favorites
- Winnipeg Blue Bombers: +225
New week and same result for Winnipeg. The Blue Bombers had a very convincing win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
The offense is still struggling to find its groove. Collaros was passing efficiently regardless of the fact he didn’t record a major. The Blue Bombers are still the best defense in the league forcing yet another team to find consistent success.
- Calgary Stampeders: +500
Last week’s performance does not reflect the odds that are currently being displayed. The fact that the Stamps had to comeback and win against this team concerns me.
The offense is still putting up solid numbers on the stat sheet but they got off to a slower start than anticipated. Scoring 10 points in each of the final three quarters. Defensively, they allowed a struggling Elk team to get within one possession. As a bettor, that would concern me in the long run.
- BC Lions: +500
Perhaps the most fun team in the CFL right now. In two consecutive games, they have managed to dominate all four quarters! +500 is great value right now.
Rourkemania is still taking this league by storm. He is the league leader in completion percentage, YPG, and touchdowns. This team has looked unreal these past two games. On the other side of the ball, they average one forced fumble per game, four sacks, and allows nine PPG. That trend of dominance is continuing!
TIER 2: Middle of the pack
- Saskatchewan Roughriders: +600
Penalties will continue to kill this team. Once they are able to rectify those errors, this will be a much different football team. Until we see that change, the riders odds will continue to stumble.
- Toronto Argonauts: +800
The offense has been nowhere to be seen. With all the big signings this offseason, there seems to be minimal production in the red zone. Some must change in the six because the defense is the only reason this team is not horrendous.
- Montreal Alouettes: +1000
The fact the Als are +1000 right does not quite make sense. This is easily the value pick. After a dominating home opener, this team will ride this wave big time. This team’s odds will continue to climb so be wary.
TIER 3: Down but not out
- Hamilton Tiger-Cats: +1200
Just so disappointing. Dane Evans is slinging the ball but nobody is helping around him. Their falls will further fall until this team somehow gets better.
- Ottawa Redblacks: +1200
Ottawa remains 0-2 after a bye week last week. They play BC so chances are they falter to 0-3. Masoli is playing well and they were close in the Blue Bomber games but this will not fly in the west coast.
- Edmonton Elks: +4000
There seems to be a bit of flight coming out of Edmonton but not enough for them to be in the Grey Cup conversation. At least the city of Edmonton has McDavid right?
Best games to bet on during the week
- BC Lions (-4.5) vs Ottawa Redblacks
The fact the hottest team is only favored by four and a half is still a mystery. Nathan Rourke may have lost WR Bryan Burnham but Lucky Whitehead and James Butler provide a lot of production. Ottawa will not out-sling the Lions.
- Montreal Alouettes (+3.5) vs Saskatchewan Roughriders
This is a rematch of last week. Montreal beat up the Roughriders pretty badly so it does not make the most sense that the Roughriders made a huge turn around within a week.
WR Shaq Evans is out for the next few weeks and Cody Fajarado has minimal weapons. The Roughriders are also penalty prone. The Als are just marginally better on both sides of the ball and should cover the spread as they are 3-0 ATS.
