Despite being handed their second loss of the year the following week, Winnipeg has maintained a large lead on the Grey Cup oddsboard all season long in its bid to claim a third straight Grey Cup championship.
After that loss in Week 15, Winnipeg’s CFL Grey Cup odds have jumped slightly to +125. I expect this will be one of the last weeks that Winnipeg offers plus-money value.
The Calgary Stampeders (+400) and Toronto Argonauts (+400) follow the Bombers on the oddsboard with both squads clinching spots in postseason play last week. Meanwhile, the B.C. Lions (+500) have dropped significantly since QB Nathan Rourke was injured in Week 11 but they have also secured a playoff berth thanks to their success in the first half of the season.
Online sportsbook BetOnline Sportsbook has all of the up-to-date 2022 Grey Cup odds. The two-time defending champion Blue Bombers continue to hold the No. 1 spot in the odds to win the Grey Cup at +125.

Luck Appears On The Bombers’ Side
For a time, Winnipeg was in a pivotal spot after having its undefeated record snapped in August. Then, they had to prepare for a second half to the season filled with challengers, but the Bombers regrouped from the loss and watched their competitors begin to fall.
All season, Winnipeg’s biggest challenger appeared to be B.C. (9-4), with the Lions previously closest in the standings and with Rourke dominating the league in his first season as a CFL starter.
Then Rourke sprained his right foot, an injury that is expected to keep him sidelined until the end of the regular season or the beginning of the playoffs. That made things much easier for Winnipeg.
The Bombers took down their second-toughest competitor, the Stamps, by sweeping the regular-season series for the first time since 1987.
QB Zach Collaros, a CFL Most Outstanding Player contender, has put up the best numbers of his decade-long career, throwing for over 3,500 yards and collecting 28 touchdowns so far.
Winnipeg’s next goal is clinching a postseason contest at IG Field. Two scenarios would give them that advantage – a victory in this week’s matchup against the Roughriders or a Stamps loss at McMahon Stadium in their game against the Argos (8-5).
Grey Cup Odds Value Pick: Calgary Stampeders (+400)
Calgary (9-5) has also benefited from B.C.’s string of injuries that have taken the roar out of the Lions.
The Stampeders offense has recently become the best in the league, now averaging 30.9 points per game. The defense is their Achilles heel, giving up a middling 23.5 points.
In Week 12, the Stamps chose to replace starting veteran QB Bo Levi Mitchell with backup Jake Maier and he’s been getting the job done.
Last week, they took a 25-11 win to close out the season series against the Lions. Maier connected on 27 of 33 tosses for 294 yards.
It’s a pretty solid move to have a backup quarterback feeling the momentum while also keeping the veteran star on the bench who knows his role and can shake off any nerves if called upon in playoff battle.
The Stamps host the Argos this week and their odds could potentially shorten with a win against another playoff-bound team that shares the same +400 odds. The value is definitely there and ready to be pounced on, though it could be short-lived.
