Repeat Grey Cup champions isn’t the norm in the CFL despite the league featuring only 9 teams.
This season, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are looking to capture back-to-back Grey Cup titles for the first time since the 1960s. The CFL last saw repeat champions in 2009/2010 by the Montreal Alouettes.
Even though the Blue Bombers are the current defending champions, they don’t own the best odds to win the Grey Cup. Bookie 18Bet has the Blue Bombers at +550 to win the Grey Cup.

Online bookmaker 18Bet has the Tiger-Cats at +340 to win the Grey Cup.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats own the best odds to win the Grey Cup. Fans have been longing for a title in Hamilton as the Tiger-Cats have not won the Grey Cup since 1999. They currently own the longest championship drought in the CFL after falling in the Grey Cup last season. Hamilton is listed at +340 to win the Gre Cup this season.
How weak will the East Division be this season? While no game is a walk in the park, the door is wide open for Hamilton to reach the Grey Cup from the East. Montreal and Toronto are both listed at +800, while the Ottawa Redblacks are listed at +1300 to win the Grey Cup. The East has the worst odds to win it all, aside from Hamilton.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders have the best odds out of the West Division. Saskatchewan has been a consistent contender for several years. However, they have fallen short, unable to reach the Grey Cup in a tough West Division. The Roughriders are listed at +500, which is slightly better than the Calgary Stampeders at +550.
