The Canadian Football League (CFL) has been around since 1958. The creation of the Canadian Football League came from a merger with the Western Interprovincial Football Union and the Interprovincial Rugby Football Union. This merger formed an East and West division in the CFL. Starting in 1993 and only lasting for three years, the Canadian Football League included teams outside Canada. The CFL added these teams to a new division in 1995, the South. The CFL South division had a total of 5 teams in 1995. The CFL South teams were:
- Baltimore Stallions
- Birmingham Barracudas
- Memphis Mad Dogs
- San Antonio Texans
- Shreveport Pirates
At the end of the 1995 CFL season, the league decided to end its operations in the United States. One team from the CFL South division, the Baltimore Stallions, was used to revive the old CFL team of the Montreal Alouettes by its owner.
As of the 2021 season, the Canadian Football League consists of 9 teams from two divisions. Here are the Canadian Football League Teams for the 2021 season:
- BC Lions
- Calgary Stampeders
- Edmonton Elks
- Saskatchewan Roughriders
- Winnipeg Blue Bombers
- Hamilton Tiger-Cats
- Montreal Alouettes
- Ottawa Redblacks
- Toronto Argonauts
The Canadian Football season is 16 weeks long, with each team playing 14 games during the regular season. There are two weeks of playoff games at the end of the regular season. The first week has the second and third-place teams from their division face each other. The winner of that game then faces the first-place team in a divisional final matchup. The season will conclude with the Grey Cup, the CFL championship game.
Some early 2021 Canadian Football predictions had the Hamilton Tiger-Cats winning the 2021 Grey Cup.

There are also things to look over before betting on Canadian Football League Teams and their games. With the relatively few teams that the Canadian Football League has, teams will play other teams multiple times over the 14 game season. This means there will be plenty of past matchup history to look over. Looking at the record of past games is helping to find a trend. Is one team dominating the other? Do they split games based on home-field advantage? Or do they play better on the road against the other team?
Injuries can often play a critical role in team play. If the injury is to an essential player, this can hurt the team’s chance of winning. Before betting, when you see a player is injured, ask this question, “Does this player make a big impact at his position?” The less impactful a player is, the easier it is for a replacement to do just as good on the field as the other player.
These are just a few things to keep in mind when betting on a Canadian Football team.
