CFL Betting in Canada
At Canadian Sports Betting we will help you get information on how and where to bet on Canadian Football League (CFL) together with news, bet predictions and odds comparisons throughout the season.
We employ a team of professional tipsters who will offer you their weekly picks and CFL predictions for the coming season. Once the regular season ends, they will also give their predictions on the Eastern and Western Conference semifinals and finals, as well as the Grey Cup. Apart from forecasting future winners and your usual Moneylines, Overs/Unders and Totals bets we will be giving you our view on the possible season MVP fight (Most Valuable Player), and other CFL prop betting markets available at sportsbook betting sites.
During the regular CFL football season, predictions are made after analyzing statistical data, head to head records, both home and away, current form, history, venue trends, venue location and even the weather. Make sure you follow our regular updates as news of injuries and final line-ups come in ahead of big kick-off. As well as following our CFL predictions, you can go through all our useful CFL odds comparisons to find the best betting odds available for you.
Right now, you can bet on CFL ‘Futures’ betting like the semi-finals, finals and the Championship games based on given odds and also our experts’ predictions about which team will fight for the conference and go into the Grey Cup and win the CFL title. As the season progresses, those odds and predictions will change, so be sure to follow our regular updates.
Best CFL Sportsbooks
For your benefit, we have taken to reviewing all the major sportsbooks which cover CFL betting and have come up with a list of the top CFL bookmakers you should use. We looked at things like how established the sportsbooks are, what kind of sign-up offers they have, the payment methods for depositing and withdrawing money and the variety of betting markets for the Canadian fans. We also checked out their customer service procedures and ease of use, as well as their reputation and number of users.
While there is an abundance of available sportsbooks, not all of them are safe and cover CFL betting, so we made a list recommending the best sportsbook sites. These include sites like 10Bet, bet365, 888.com, SportingBet, Betway, Sports Interaction, Bwin and William Hill. All these sites require minimum deposits to be paid during registration and will provide extensive help to guide you through their new account welcome offers. All these top sites also have detailed statistics information on past and upcoming matches.
In terms of sign-up bonuses, 888.com are the most generous ones with a $250 bonus upon registration, followed closely by bet365 and Sports Interaction with bonuses in the amount of up to $200. As far as Customer Service is concerned, bet365 and William Hill stand out offering you plenty of ways to contact them if you have an issue. Bwin has one of the most easily accessible sites and a variety of betting markets bested only by the guys at Sports Interaction which offer all kinds of regular and prop betting including bets on futures.
Live betting or more commonly known as “In-play” betting is one of the newest features sportsbooks have brought in recently. It allows you to place your bets during the live game, or as the name suggests, while the ball is still in play. You are free to place your wagers before the kick-off of course but once the game starts, you can follow the play-by-play and try to predict CFL scores and swings in game momentum. You can guess the half time scores, number of points or you can simply try to predict what will happen in the next five minutes.
The top CFL betting sites will definitely have the in-play option available and it is normally easily accessible through a single press of a button. What you will then get is a selection of matches that are currently playing and are covered by the sportsbook. Normally, all sites will cover the main sports such as soccer, tennis, basketball, American football and of course what you are most interested in, Canadian football. Another useful part of live betting is the in-play schedule you can check out on the best betting sites. The schedule will let you find out when the game you want to bet on is scheduled to start.
You will also have access to live CFL statistics and play-by-play updates as well as the odds on CFL betting markets for that particular matchup. The most popular ones are first half and second half scores, number of goals by half and at the end of the game, plus there’s always some interesting CFL prop bets like whether a goal will be scored in the next five minutes. Watch out for any changes as the odds will be updated throughout the length of the match.
Many betting fans don’t have access to live TV coverage of sports matches which is why many sportsbooks offer a free live streaming service. However, only a few sites stream CFL games live and (at the time of writing) only bet365 live streams all CFL matches. A couple of others will only stream the biggest games such as the Grey Cup in the case of CFL.
If you would like to watch a game at the same time as you are following statistics and odds for the teams you are interested in, simply log on the bet365 web site and check it out. To get the option of watching the live streams all you have to do is register and pay a minimum $5 deposit. Once you do that, you can look at some guides on how to use the site or go directly to the in-play section, choose a live match and go onto the live stream. The site is designed so you can watch the game and have all other information in view while deciding what to place a wager on. Or if you don’t like the odds, just sit back and enjoy the match.
Once CFL betting reaches the level of popularity of, for instance, NFL betting, more sites will definitely look to include live streaming of CFL matches in their offerings, especially sportsbooks already covering football leagues from the US.
