Now learn about the types of bets for CFL.
Point Spread: A point spread is used to evenly match games regardless of the two opponents that are playing.
A game between the Ottawa Redblacks and the Toronto Argonauts favors the Argonauts. By adding a point spread to the game of Ottawa (+9.5) vs Toronto (-9.5), you can bet on the Argonauts at -9.5 will only win their bet if Toronto wins by 10 points or more. Ottawa +9.5 bettors cash their tickets if the Redblacks win outright or lose by nine points or less.
Moneyline: In the example above, bettors would have to pay a premium to bet on Toronto to win outright at -475 (bet $475 to win $100). On the other hand, betting on an Ottawa upset would pay nicely at +380 (bet $100 to win $380).
Totals: Also called OVER/UNDER, this is a bet based on a set number of points. If the point total is set at 50.5 points, a bet on the OVER cashes if 51 or more points are scored and a bet on the UNDER cashes if there are 50 points or less scored.
Props: These are bets on individual players, team stats and other outcomes that may not directly affect the game. Prop bets include which team will score first, how many yards will player X have, how many touchdowns will player Y have, and who will win the coin toss. Look for more props closer to Grey Cup.
Futures: These are wagers you can make on events that are going to happen such as which team will win their division, which team will win the Grey Cup and who will be named the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player.
