A Look at Some of the CFL’s Top Grey Cup Contenders This Year

The Canadian Football League is one of the world’s premier professional football leagues, enjoyed by millions every year. The season is fast approaching for the CFL, and many bettors are looking to place their wagers on the odds available on sports betting sites for the 2024 Grey Cup.

There are several teams that have emerged as favourites as we look ahead to what this year could hold for the CFL. Below, we’re breaking down some of the top contenders on different sports betting sites with the highest odds of winning the 2024 Grey Cup.

Toronto Argonauts

The Toronto Argonauts were the best team in the CFL last year throughout the regular season. They went 16-2 and dominated everyone in their path. They fell short of their Grey Cup dreams last year, but they are still expected to have a massive season this year, according to most sports betting sites in Canada. Toronto is led by Chad Kelly at quarterback, who showed himself to be a superstar last season. They will have to revamp their running game after some losses, but a top-notch wide receiver room and defensive players like Folarin Orimolade will make them a threat to run through the league once again.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers 

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have turned into the most consistently excellent franchise in the CFL over the past several years. Over the past four seasons, they have made the Grey Cup all four times, winning it twice. Last year, they lost a heartbreaker in the Grey Cup, but they have the ability to dominate this year once again. They are led by quarterback Zach Collaros, who has been the best player in the CFL over the past several seasons. After making some surprise appearances in the offseason, Collaros will return to football ready to dominate, and the Blue Bombers have the talent to support him despite some offseason losses.

BC Lions

The BC Lions had a big season last year, going 12-6 and making a run to the West Final. Their high-flying offence really delivered, and they are set to run it back this year. They have high odds, according to many sportsbooks, of returning to the big stage. A major reason for this is the play of quarterback Vernon Adams, who was one of the top players in the league last year. The Lions extended Adams after he had career highs in several categories for the team. While they’ll look for him to reign in the interceptions, more of his game-changing play will be needed for this offense-oriented group.

Montreal Alouettes

You might be a little surprised to see the Montreal Alouettes, the defending Grey Cup champions, ranked this low. But sportsbooks don’t appear too high on this team. The Alouettes had a miraculous run last season, beating the Argonauts and the Blue Bombers to return to glory. They were led by the duo of Cody Fajardo and Austin Mack. Mack has left the CFL to try and earn a place in the NFL, but Fajardo is back to try and help this team repeat. While they have lower odds than many of the other top teams, don’t sleep on this Alouettes roster. They have a solid defence and an offence that can surprise, even after losing leading rushing William Stanback.

Calgary Stampeders

Calgary fans are passionate about their CFL team, which suffered a highly disappointing season last year. They went 6-12, making it one of their worst seasons of the past few years. Many expect this to be a major bounceback season for the Stampeders. Jake Maier returns this season, and fans are hoping to see improved play from the young QB. Reggie Begelton showed why he’s a star last year, and he’s back to help put this roster over the top. The Stampeders can creep up on a lot of people this year. However, in a challenging West, it is difficult to project whether they will earn a shot at the Grey Cup

Who Will It Be?

These are the five teams oddsmakers have pegged for the best results, but don’t be surprised if the unexpected happens. When the CFL season launches in May, fans can expect a wild year filled with excitement. Place your bets now and enjoy another great season.
