CFL Grey Cup Bets mean this is the season’s last game. It is hard to believe, but we have made it to the Final. Thanks to BetOnline online betting sportsbook, there are always a few different choices to bet on for Sunday’s game. Sometimes Canada is a welcome departure for sports other than curling and hockey. The CFL’s “favorite” remains Winnipeg. Could we be betting on Winnipeg anyway to win the Grey Cup for the three-peat?
Winnipeg and Toronto will play for the 109th Grey Cup Sunday evening in Saskatchewan. The Blue Bombers and Argonauts topped the CFL Grey Cup Bets for the last several weeks. Granted, the playoffs have been more or less a cakewalk for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. They won 15 of 18 games during the regular season and two more in the playoffs. Winnipeg went 10-1 in their division as they lost to British Columbia late in the season.
The Blue Bombers have been the best choice all season because they are meant to play in weather that is frigid. Last week against British Columbia, their defense was relentless. The amount of pressure Winnipeg put on Nathan Rourke was ridiculous. Their 28-20 victory felt like it was quickly much more. Brady Oliveira racked up 167 yards from scrimmage, and Zach Collaros threw for 178 yards in the win.
So, Winnipeg enjoyed their home-field advantage. Toronto had a hair tougher time against the Montreal Aloutettes. The teams played each other for the third time in a month. The first quarter was decisive as Toronto jumped out to a 14-3 lead behind McLeod Bethel-Thompson he wound up with nearly 300 yards passing and two touchdowns overall. The 34-27 win was made closer by a late Montreal rally.
Now, CFL Grey Cup Bets focuses on some simple questions. Can Winnipeg finish this run-off? Could Toronto be that dreaded surprise team? Here at VegasBetting, we look at a few ways to bet on this exciting final clash.
Winnipeg and the CFL Grey Cup Bets opened with the Blue Bombers as a 4.5-point favorite over the Toronto Argonauts on Sunday evening. This team is still human, and just a few mistakes could derail their hopes. Their running attack is the most fearful in the league. The way they gobbled up chunks of yards against British Columbia was frightening. When that fails, Winnipeg can beat teams through the air too.
The other concern is Zach Collaros. He was seen coming off the field with an injury late in the fourth quarter against the Lions. Collaros tried to take the field for the final drive but could not. He was seen getting his ankle heavily taped up. His injury status is unknown, but the quarterback and the coaching staff insisted this was more precautionary than anything. Time will tell.
Winnipeg is still the best pick here. Dalton Schoen is the likely MOR (Most Outstanding Rookie). He has been a huge reason why the Blue Bombers are so dangerous. Collaros can throw four guys, including Brady Oliveira, out of the backfield (130 yards rushing and 37 receiving). Also, the Blue Bombers have so many weapons, which also showed in their matchups against Toronto.
The playoffs go through Winnipeg, err Mosaic. Yes. Mosaic Stadium holds fond memories of Grey Cups past for Winnipeg. It is almost like a home-field advantage. Winnipeg is our Grey Cup pick and good for more CFL Grey Cup Bets.
CFL Grey Cup Bets asks the betting world to parlay their picks. Could the Toronto Argonauts spring the upset? That does not seem that outlandish considering the Collaros injury news, and Andrew Harris (former hometown hero) is one of the best runners in the CFL. However, the playoffs are a different beast, and Winnipeg’s defense can humble any team. That goes for even Toronto and McLeod Bethel-Thomas.
Again, Toronto did play Winnipeg tough during a July 4th matchup. The 23-22 game was one the Argonauts probably should have won. Times are different, and that was played in Toronto. This game will be played on the likely tundra of Mosaic Stadium in Regina, Saskatchewan. Expect that field to feel more like cement than grass or any turf.
Few would be pleasantly surprised with Toronto keeping the game close in the fourth quarter. Winnipeg was able to cruise mostly the past couple of weeks. They were up 28-13 on British Columbia last week before coasting to a 28-20 win. Expect them to ground and pound in the second half again, as they play downhill football better than Toronto or anyone.
For CFL Grey Cup Bets, taking Winnipeg laying 4.5 points is not that dangerous, and it pays better. Do monitor the health of Zach Collaros, just in case. Maybe the line moves a little bit in the bettor’s favor.
The Toronto Argonauts are at high as +215 on the moneyline for Sunday. Could they spring the upset? It is possible. Again, the passing game has to set up Andrew Harris. If that does not happen, Toronto is in for a long second half.
This game feels like a one-score contest. Either Toronto wins outright or loses and does not cover. Watch for the over too. The 48 could even push.
