The CFL has a special spot in the hearts of hardcore Canadian sports fans.  It’s a fast paced game with big plays and big swings in the score.  CFL football is exactly the type of sport that is great for sports betting.

I know there is a lot of interest in betting on CFL games here in Canada.  Because of this I wanted to create this page to provide a simple 3 step tutorial to help Canadians quickly and easily get betting action on any CFL games this week.

Step 3. Place Your CFL Bets

You’re now ready to place your CFL bets.  To find the CFL betting lines click on ‘Sports’ from the top navigation bar, open the ‘Football’ drop down menu and select ‘CFL’.

Here’s an example screenshot of what the single game betting options will look like for a CFL game:

You can see that the spread, money line and over/under bets are prominently shown for each CFL game.  You can also see the +12 bets link in the bottom right corner of the screenshot.  This indicates that there are 12 other prop bets you can make on this game such as first time to score, half-time/full-time, winning margin and more.

I usually stick with the main three betting options on CFL games, but the prop bets also allow you to get really into the game and bet on every aspect.  Check out the football betting page for a further breakdown of all the different bets you can make.
