Decoding the CFL Las Vegas Betting Odds
Understanding the betting odds can often seem like a daunting task. The point-spread is a popular betting method that ensures a level playing field by offering points to the perceived weaker team to attract more bets.
Let’s decode the meaning of the plus (+) and minus (-) symbols. The minus (-) denotes the favored team, implying that betting on this team would require giving up several points. On the other hand, the underdog team is signified by a plus (+) symbol.
For instance, consider the favorite as -10 and the underdog as +10. The additional number that accompanies the favorite, such as -10, is often referred to as the “vig” or vigorish. It represents the price a bettor needs to pay on a straight wager.
Commonly, -10 is the industry standard. However, sportsbooks may offer reduced ‘juice odds’, which could appear as -08, -12, -15, or -20. These lower-juice odds are typically found in sportsbooks outside of Nevada.
Unveiling the ‘Open Line’ and ‘VI Consensus CFL Line’
The ‘Open Line’ and ‘VI Consensus CFL Line’ are two essential features on the CFL Vegas Odds board.
The ‘Open Line’ reflects the first betting line from a Las Vegas or Global Sportsbook. This number provides a baseline that oddsmakers use for rating.
The ‘VI Consensus CFL Line’ is a critical resource that displays the most consistent number provided by the sportsbooks on VegasInsider.com. This consensus line is identical to the open line but tends to differ once the betting starts.
Betting on CFL Games and the Grey Cup
While betting, there will always be a favorite and an underdog listed for each game. For instance, consider Edmonton as an 8.5-point favorite and Montreal as an 8.5-point underdog. Edmonton would cover the spread if it wins by more than nine points. On the contrary, Montreal could cover the spread either by losing by eight or fewer points or by winning the game outright.
CFL also has unique rules that differentiate it from the NFL, making betting on CFL games or the Grey Cup an exhilarating experience.
In the case of the Grey Cup, future bets or “Odds to Win” bets are common. Here, the challenge lies in accurately predicting a team to win an event happening later in the year.
