The CFL season has all but wrapped up and the West and East division champions, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Toronto Argonauts, will go head-to-head in the final and most important contest of the year – the Grey Cup.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Calgary Stampeders were the first teams sent packing in the CFL playoffs, not living past the division semifinals. Then the visiting Montreal Alouettes and B.C. Lions were eliminated by the Argos and Bombers respectively in the division finals.
The Argos and Bombers, our Grey Cup odds favorite for the majority of the season, will square off at Mosaic Stadium in Regina, Saskatchewan, for the CFL championship.

Pick: Winnipeg Blue Bombers -5.5 (-110)
Winnipeg will take its shot at achieving a Grey Cup three-peat, a feat that hasn’t been accomplished in 40 years, with the Edmonton Elks the last team to do so when they won five straight championships between 1978 and 1982. The Bombers will be tested against the team that has the most titles, the Argos, who have 17 trophies in their trophy case.
Winnipeg (15-3) dominated the West all season long and was the first team in the league to clinch its division. The Bombers averaged 29.9 points per game to rank second in the CFL and beat out the Stamps and Lions to earn a bye into the West final, where they upended the Lions 28-20. The competition is much stiffer in the West than in the lowly East, where Toronto (11-7) held off a late challenge from Montreal to earn the bye and went on to down the Als 34-27 in the East final.
The potent Winnipeg offense is guided by last season’s CFL Most Outstanding Player, veteran QB Zach Collaros. The 34-year-old led the league with 37 touchdown passes in the regular season and ranked second with 4,183 passing yards. He was bested in that category by none other than Argos signal-caller McLeod Bethel-Thompson, who topped the chart with 4,731 passing yards and added 23 touchdown strikes.
Although Collaros didn’t step on the field for practice early this week and the media reported him walking “slowly” in the airport on the trip to Regina, I think the quarterback will be fine and there’s no need to panic.

Winnipeg has all its bases covered. Collaros’ tosses are bullets and are often aimed at the nation’s best receiver, Dalton Schoen, whose 1,441 receiving yards and 16 touchdown receptions led both categories. If the ball isn’t soaring through the air, it’s safe in the hands of RB Brady Oliveira, who finished third with 1,001 rushing yards and ran for a season-high 130 yards in the West final against B.C.
If the offense is having an off-day (probably not, though), Winnipeg’s defense, which gave up a league-low 20.2 points per game, will lock it down. This team is disciplined, having the fewest penalties in the league, and they are skilled on both sides of the ball.
These teams met only once this year, at the start of July in Toronto, and the Bombers went home with a 23-22 victory in a finish much closer than anticipated. However, Winnipeg is 7-3 SU and ATS in the past 10 meetings with Toronto, with the OVER going 9-1 in those 10 contests.
The forecast, shockingly, calls for a nice night in Saskatchewan – nice in the opinion of Canadians, at least. A high of minus-2 degrees will warm up the field just in time for kickoff. But there’s no rain or snow or anything else in the offing to interfere with the game. The outcome on the scoreboard will be decided solely by who the better team is.
but not cold enough. https://t.co/gOnqN36HqL— DaVaris Daniels (@SincerelyToot) November 15, 2022
Sure, it would be nice to see another squad hoist the hardware ... unless you’re a Blue Bombers fan. But Winnipeg is the better team and getting another sniff at the Grey Cup has been predictable all year. I’m taking the Bombers to cover the spread and pocket their third consecutive championship.
How To Bet On CFL Betting Odds:
While you can bet on spreads and point totals, one of the easiest ways to bet on CFL betting odds is through a moneyline. This moneyline bet means you simply pick which side you think will win between the favorite (signaled with a minus sign) and underdog (signaled with a plus sign).
A CFL moneyline of +200 means that you would win $200 on a successful $100 wager. That’s also equivalent to fractional odds of 2/1, decimal odds of 3.00 and implied odds of 33.33 percent. A negative moneyline of -200 means that you would have to wager $200 in order to win $100 on the favorite.
