Canadian Football Odds

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.

How To Bet On Canadian Football

With the knowledge of the Canadian Football League teams, the season they play, and their format to their championship game, you can get into the betting aspect of the game. There are some questions that people often have about betting on Canadian Football. Below are some of the questions asked and the answers to them.


Canadian Football FAQs

A: Yes! BetUS allows for betting on Canadian Football League games. They allow you to bet using cash or crypto.
A: The betting options for Canadian Football read the same as the betting options on other football games. There will be a point spread, a money line, and an over/under on the total amount of points scored. Each section will also have different payout odds.

The point spread usually has slightly negative odds, even odds, or slightly plus side odds. A money line bet is an outright bet on who will win. This will have higher plus side odds as well as higher negative odds. Occasionally, there could be even odds if the team matchup is even. The over/under odds are the same as a point spread. The odds will be pretty close one way or the other.

A point spread means that you are giving away points to another team or that you are getting additional points added to the final score.

Money line refers to a bet on a team to win outright.

Over/Under refers to the total amount of points scored between the two teams. If you take the over, you are betting that the total points scored will be over that amount. If you bet the under, you are betting that the total points scored will be under that amount.

A: You can find all the Canadian Football games to bet on under the FOOTBALL tab of the SPORTSBOOK section of the BetUS site. After clicking on FOOTBALL on the left side of the screen, just scroll down until you see CANADIAN FOOTBALL.
A: From the CANADIAN FOOTBALL tab on the left side, you can pull up all the Canadian Football games being played for that week. All the games available for that week will be on the middle of the screen, along with point spread, money line, and over/under betting options.
A: Canadian Football odds work the same as other football sports odds. When looking at the odds numbers, you will see either a plus or minus sign. There is also the abbreviation EV; this means even odds.

You will get even money for every $100 bet with EV odds. So EV will get you $200 on a $200 wager.

You will get the amount shown for every $100 bet with plus odds. So +300 will get you $300 on a $100 wager.

You will get a smaller payout on every $100 bet with negative odds. So -500 will get you $20 on a $100 wager.

Rolling If Bets (RIF) allow you to use the balance (amount) from existing wagers to make a new wager. As long as existing wagers have not been graded, the amount wagered can still be used to make new wagers. However, if your original wager loses, the Rolling If Bet is then cancelled. There are two options for ties (pushes); you can specify if you want the Rolling If Bet to continue in case of a tie or simply cancel the RIF.

Rolling If Bets are:
  • only allowed on straight bets, Parlays and Teasers.
  • not available with Free Plays or Futures and Props
  • only available if you have pre existing, non graded wagers
  • you can only use the funds from the amount of the pre existing wager
How to Place a Rolling If Bet:
  • Choose any straight, parlay or teaser and Place it on the Bet Slip
  • Click on the Rolling If Bet button next to the wager detail
  • In the RIF dropdown, choose a wager that you want to use for RIF
  • Click on "If Win Only" or "If Win or Push" (explained above)
  • Fill in the amount and confirm your wager (the system will not allow you a higher amount than what is available)
