Eskimos CFL Football Betting

The Battle of Alberta will heat up on the CFL odds board this Sunday as the Calgary Stampeders hit the road north for a battle with the Edmonton Eskimos. The winner of the big ticket contest will face division-leader B.C. in the West Division Final.

Though the provincial rivalry is one of the fiercest in football, a strange phenomenon has unfolded in 2011, the visiting team has won every match. Will that impact how football fans across the country bet on the hometown Eskimos who finished the year with the season series advantage over Calgary?

 

Although recent history may suggest that home teams struggle in this pairing, Bodog’s online sportsbook still dubs the No. 2-seeded Eskimos as favorites on the CFL odds board; Edmonton has 13/2 odds of winning they Grey Cup, compared to Calgary’s 7/1.

 

Over the course of the 18-game season both of the two contestants (not to mention B.C. as well) finished with records of 11-7, a testament to just how close the division really is, and just how unpredictable the results are year in and year out.

 

In 2010 the Stamps finished the regular season with the top record in all of the CFL but were eliminated in their first game of playoff action. Can they avenge their early exit against an Eskimos team that didn’t even make it into the postseason at all last fall?
