CFL Odds and Betting

These two teams met only once this season and it was the opening game of the 2021 season. The Bombers scored a 19-6 win. In that contest, the Ti-Cats scored two field goals in the first quarter and were kept off the scoreboard for the rest of the game.

The Bombers own an 11-14 (.440) record in the Grey Cup. The Tiger-Cats 8-13 (.381) in 21 championship appearances. This will be the first time since the 2013 season that the host team has made it to the final. Hamilton hopes to capture its first Grey Cup title since 1999. That’s currently the longest championship drought in the CFL.

Teams from Hamilton and Winnipeg have met in the Grey Cup 11 times since 1935 with Winnipeg winning seven times.

Interesting note, the Bombers are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games this season. While the Ti-Cats are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games.

The Bombers opened as 4.5-point favourites at Sports Interaction.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers

The Bombers will get a chance to run it back. The CFL’s top rated team during the regular season will be looking for their second consecutive Grey Cup after knocking off the Roughriders 21-17 in the West Final.

Star Running back Andrew Harris had a monster game for the Blue and Gold. The 2019 Grey Cup MVP showed no signs of rust, as he rushed for 136 yards on 23 carries in his first game since October 15.

The win was closer than many people thought it would be. It wasn’t a typical Bombers win as they turned the ball over six times throughout the game. During the regular season this team committed only 20 turnovers.

The Bombers finished the 2021 regular season with a 11-3 record (8-6 against the spread), tops in the CFL.

The Bombers produced 15 all-stars in the West division, 10 of them were first time selections including Quarterback Zach Collaros, who is also the division’s Most Outstanding player nominee. Collaros played for the Ti-Cats for four years between 2014-2017.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats

The Ti-Cats were slight underdogs in the East final knocking off the Argos in Toronto 27-19. Things didn’t look good in that game as the home side Argos took a quick 12-0 halftime lead.

That quickly turned in the Cats favour when Papi White returned a Boris Bebe 51-yard punt for a touchdown. Hamilton ended up scoring 17 second half points to secure the win.

Head Coach Orlando Steinauer made the difficult decision of benching starter Jeremiah Masoli who was having a hard time moving the ball. That move paid off as Dane Evans was a perfect 16-for-16 for 249 yards and a touchdown.

The Ti-Cats finished fifth in total offence (355.8 yards) and third in total defence (328.9 yards).

The team finished second in the East with a 9-6 record (9-5-1 against the spread) and will have the advantage of a sold-out Tim Hortons Field on Sunday. Hamilton was 6-2 in eight home games this year.
