CFL Football Calgary Stampeders betting

The CFL’s top two West Division teams will square off in a primetime bout this long weekend when the 6-2 Calgary Stampeders host the 5-3 Edmonton Eskimos on Monday afternoon.

Not only does the match serve as a potential preview of the league’s West Division final, it also gives bettors an inside look at two heated story lines that ought to factor into any CFL betting decision.

Though both teams sit towards the top of the Grey Cup futures list, they’re headed in vastly opposite directions.

Having won their last four games, the Stampeders are well on their way to replicating last year’s success when they finished the 2010 campaign with the best record in Canadian football.

The Eskimos, on the other hand, after winning their first five games of the season have been in free fall ever since. With just 5/1 odds of winning the Grey Cup – a low mark considering six of the eight teams in the league make the playoffs – bettor confidence is obviously waning.

In contrast, the Stampeders have 9/4 odds of winning the CFL championship this fall. A mark even more optimistic than the 7-1 Blue Bombers and two-time reigning champion Alouettes.

Will the Stampeders continue their torrid run through the league or will the spotlight be all Edmonton needs to get their wayward season back on track?
