CFL Future Odds

Currently there are no futures available.

CFL future odds markets give fans the chance to bet on Canadian Football League outrights, such as division winners and Grey Cup champions.

Unlike CFL odds on specific matches, CFL futures markets are typically available well in advance of the competition conclusion and remain open until the final outcome is known.

Many fans enjoy betting on futures as it offers a chance to get big odds on long-term events, so fans can show off their knowledge of the teams and their situation, such as roster strength, the ability of the coach and player fitness. 

CFL Future Odds: What Are The Betting Markets?

CFL future odds betting markets include: 

  • Grey Cup winner – which team will prevail over the course of the season and win the Grey Cup?
  • Division Winner – The CFL’s teams are divided into two divisions - East and West. Some sportsbooks give fans the chance to predict the winners of each division as part of their CFL futures offering.
  • CFL Player futures – some sportsbooks even offer outrights on players, including who will be named Most Valuable Player (MVP) for the season, who will throw the most yards and who will rush the most yards.

Picking CFL Futures

CFL futures betting favours those who really know the teams, the players and the general landscape of the game.

The biggest odds are available before a ball is kicked, but that also carries greater risk. Some savvy bettors prefer to wait a few weeks into the season, to evaluate how each roster is taking shape in the early stages of the season and try to use this information to inform their bets.

Some things to consider when betting on CFL futures:

  • How did the team perform last season?
  • Does the team have a proven track record of success?
  • Who is the coach?
  • How strong is the roster and has it been improved during the draft?
  • Are any key players injured or prone to injury?
  • How strong is the team traditionally at home and on the road
  • Importantly, what are the odds? Has the sportsbook priced your selection well or is there good value to be had?

It can be quite fun to try and predict the winners early in the season, and it may also be profitable as the odds are higher at the beginning. However, if you wager a large amount, it will be tied up for a long time.

How to figure out the wager amounts? If the Winnipeg Blue Bombers' future odds to win the Grey Cup are +800, and if I wager $100 now, this would make me $800 profit in the eventuality they win.
