Betting On The CFL


Betting options are limited at this time with the main betting markets ones you would typically expect to see from an American Football competition – Moneyline, Spread and Total Points.

Moneyline - The moneyline gives you the chance to bet on who will win the game. Ties are rare in American sport, with teams going to overtime if the score is tied at the end of regulation, so bookmakers usually take a different approach to what they do for soccer’s Full-Time/1x2 market, which traditionally covers regulation time. For the CFL, the moneyline market includes overtime.

Spread - The spread market is also known as the handicap market. Bookmakers will assign one team a positive (+) or negative (-) spread, line or handicap depending on favouritism for the game, and the bettor bets to cover the line.

Let’s use a CFL game between the Toronto Argonauts and Winnipeg Blue Bombers as an example. If the Argonauts start with a +2.5 point spread and you bet on the Argonauts, they need to win the game or lose by less than three points in order for your bet to win.

On the other side of the coin, the Blue Bombers would be assigned a -2.5 point spread meaning they would need to win by three or more points in order for your bet on the Blue Bombers to be a winner.

Total Points - This CFL betting market allows bettors to bet on the total amount of points scored in a game by both teams. The sportsbook will set a line, let’s say 36.5 points and you can bet on the total points scored by both teams going over or under that total.
