Where to find the best CFL odds

While the Canadian Football League might not command the same viewership as its US counterpart, it is the highest level of professional football in Canada and remains popular among bettors looking for the best CFL odds.

The Grey Cup - the culmination of the CFL season - is among Canada’s most-watched annual sports events.

Sportsbooks offer CFL odds on individual matches, with options including moneyline, spread and total; CFL futures (known also as outrights) and, CFL prop bets (sometimes referred to as specials).

The odds could be displayed in several formats - American odds, decimal or fractional and most bookies let users choose their preference. If not, you can use our useful odds converter.

What to bet on?

The CFL comprises nine teams, each from a Canadian city, divided into two conferences - east and west. During the regular season, each team plays 18 matches across a 21-week season, from July to November. 

The play-offs involve six teams playing for three weeks, culminating in the Grey Cup championship game.

Sportsbooks allow fans to predict the outcome of the conferences and overall winners with CFL futures markets, but here we look at the CFL odds available on individual matches, both pre-match and in-play.


CFL moneyline bets are the simplest way to bet on football, where the wager is simply on the outcome of the match - which team will win?

An example of a CFL moneyline market  might be:

Toronto Argonauts -300 / Ottawa Redblacks +250


Just like with NFL, CFL spread is the most popular form of betting on football. Here, the wager is for a team to overcome a given virtual handicap set pre-match.

The spread is set depending on the teams involved and how the sportsbooks perceive their relative strengths. The favourites will be given a handicap, while the underdogs will be given an advantage.

For example, a spread of Toronto Argonauts -6.5 vs Ottawa Redblacks +6.5, would need Toronto to win by seven points or more for the bet to win.

This type of bet is popular as it allows improved odds on the favourites or a way of backing the underdogs with an improved chance.

Total (Over / Under)

The total market challenges bettors to predict whether the total points of the match will be higher or lower than a specified amount.

For example, Toronto Argonauts vs Ottawa Redblacks over 54.5 points could be priced at -110, while under 54.5 would be similar odds. The challenge for the bettor is to predict whether there will be 55 points or more in the match. 

This is a nice bet if you see a match being high-scoring or cagey, with few points traded between the teams.


CFL parlay bets allow fans to boost their odds by grouping multiple bets together. Bets can be across different markets, games, tournaments or even sports and can include huge numbers of selections, or “folds”. 

Parlays are a great way to win big off a small amount, but the more selections there are, the harder it is to win.

Prop bets

CFL prop bets are betting on a specific thing to happen in an event. Prop bets can be hugely varied, including player props such as how many yards a quarterback will throw in a game, how many times he’ll be sacked and how many incomplete passes he’ll make.
