It’s the final game of the CFL season – the CFL 2015 Grey Cup.
We go into this one on the back of a betting hot streak – as we correctly predicted the REDBLACKS would cover the 6.5 point spread, and also correctly predicted the Eskimos would cover the 3 point spread.
Eskimos did it with ease and while the REDBLACKS made it tight – they managed to cover with half a point to spare. Thank you Bovada for Americans and Sports Interaction for everyone else for not setting a 7 line.
The Eskimos and Redblacks go into this with the Eskimos 7 point favourites.
The online sportsbooks are expecting a high scoring game with the line set at 50.5 points. Last years was only 36 points but the 3 years prior to that went over 50.5 with ease.
This is the first Grey Cup the Eskimos have been in since they won in 2005. That was a 38-35 thriller against the Alouettes which was decided in double freaking overtime.
CFL Grey Cup Props:
We wanted to quickly mention prop bets available. You can bet the temperature in celsius at kick off, as well as the coin toss and a ton of player props and other special props.
While no Superbowl props – the Grey Cup props are still pretty darn good.
CFL Grey Cup: To Cover The Spread
This is going to be a great game as all Grey Cups are.
You have the Ottawa Redblacks who surprised a lot of people with the success they enjoyed this season. They joined the league last season and won only 2 games and then this season they won the East thanks in large part to 40 year old QB Henry Burris. They come into this game on a 5 game winning streak.
They will be taking on the Edmonton Eskimos who were the best team in the CFL this season. They were in 1st place in the West for most of the year and despite some injuries to key players they managed to stay competitive. They have won 9 straight games.
During the regular season these teams played each other twice and it was the Eskimos winning both games 46-17 in Edmonton and then 23-12 in Ottawa.
For the Eskimos it has been 10 years since they have won Grey Cup and after the season they had in can’t see this ending any other way. I would love the Redblacks to come away with the win in only their 2nd season but it’s a tough road ahead of them in this game. The Eskimos are the better team and have waited a long time to grab another Grey Cup.
Eskimos -7 is the pick for this game and they will win the 103rd Grey Cup.
CFL Grey Cup: Over/Under
These teams have played twice this season. The Eskimos won 23-12 and 46-17 so it’s went over once. The games were July 9th and July 17th so back to back games.
Honestly – the bet of Eskimos -7 is probably the only one we’ll be making for this one. We just love them to cover – the West have been so much stronger than the East this year.
However we also think the Eskimos will be a bit trigger shy. It’s a massive game and we don’t think they’ll be playing with the confidence they did against the Stampeders. Just something we picked up while watching that one.
While we advise sticking with Eskimos -7, if you must bet the Over/Under we highly recommend you bet the Under 50.5 points. We like this being a tighter game and think it will be around the 45 point mark.
