The nine-team Canadian Football League has former NCAAF and NFL players and has four games for bettors to pick from each week, so punters who want to bet on football after the Super Bowl will be kept happily occupied.
What betting types are available for CFL? The majority of betting sites offer the same kind of options for CFL betting as they do for NFL and NCAAF, with CFL betting types such as Point Spread, Money Lines, Prop bets and Over/Under offered for each game.
For newbies, let’s look at what these betting types mean. A point spread is a handicap that is given to or taken away from a team in order to even out the betting between underdogs and favorites. Money line bets for CFL work in exactly the same way as they do for all other sports in that the CFL odds are based on underdogs and favorites: the bigger the underdog, the bigger the odds are on that particular team.
Other popular betting types for CFL include prop bets, which allow you to bet on all sorts of things apart from the score, including which team will score first or which team will win the coin toss. There is also total betting – these are wagers on the combined scores of both teams.
With total betting, the sports betting sites set a number that they think will make people bet equally on each side, and bettors then have to decide if that is too low or too high. Finally, there’s grey cup betting, where you can bet on who will win before the season even begins. Some sites keep their futures bets open until the season is nearly over, continually adjusting the odds to reflect how each team is doing – so it’s important to check regularly.
