The CFL playoffs are nearly over, and the conference championships haven’t even started yet. One of the most exciting parts of the playoffs is picking the bets for the upcoming championship game. It’s pretty clear that everyone is going to be paying a lot of attention to this game, and there’s a good reason for that. The Toronto Argonauts will be defending their Grey Cup Title, and here’s a breakdown of how exactly to wager on this year’s championship game.
CFL Playoffs So Far
The 2019 CFL playoffs have been absolutely thrilling. The league’s most dominant team, the Calgary Stampeders, failed to capture the ultimate prize, as the Toronto Argonauts outlasted them in the Eastern Final. In other divisional finals, Toronto once again beat their way to the top with a resounding 37-14 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Calgary, on the other hand, lost their final two games after a pretty dominant season.
As exciting as those final two games were, the real story of the playoffs is Toronto. The 2019 edition of the Argonauts was a completely different team to the one that finished last year’s campaign. The newcomers have brought life to the club and inspired a totally new sense of excitement. The atmosphere in the stadium has changed, and there’s a real optimism that this year’s team will go all the way.
Analyzing Each Factor
A good bettor must always consider each and every factor that could impact the odds of a particular game. The total amount of points scored by both teams is usually one of the most important pieces of information. You need to know how many points you’re likely to get in order to make the right wagers. The less points you think you will score, the more you should wager on the opposing team. The opposite applies if you believe you are capable of putting up a high score.
Another important factor that you need to consider is the over under for the total number of combined punts and turnovers (both teams). If you think that this number will be low, then you should lay the points. However, if you think that it will be high, then you should put your money on the underdog. There’s a good reason why this number is so highly monitored by bookmakers, and it’s because it often serves as an important indicator for the overall flow and tempo of the game. If you think that there will be a high number of punts and turnovers, then you know that the game is going to be exciting and filled with scoring opportunities.
Trends A Factor To Consider
The trends serve as a good indicator of what’s going to happen in the game. For example, are the offenses of the two teams starting to stack up? If so, then the game is going to be a long and boring one, and you should avoid putting money on it. There’s always a chance that the outcome could change, but at the moment, it seems like both teams are trending in the same direction. When that happens, it’s usually a good indication that the game will be a low-scoring one and filled with long drives followed by short punts. Bookmakers always consider the trends before making any kind of wager, so you can be sure that your data is being taken into account.
The weather in Toronto is something to behold. You have three seasons in one: warm summer months, cold winter months, and a little bit of both. Those who live there know exactly what we’re talking about. While it’s exciting to live in a place where the seasons change, it can be a little bit annoying to have to adjust your lifestyle to the weather. There’s nothing worse than going from a warm spring day to a cold winter night, and having to put on several layers just to stay warm. It’s best to avoid betting on games in cold weather, as the ball can become very slippery and it’s easy for injuries to occur. If the weather is going to be below zero, then the game usually turns into a defensive struggle. The underdogs almost always win in those types of games.
The players are the last piece of information that you need to consider before laying or taking a wager on any sporting event. Knowing who’s going to be out there is always key, especially in the playoffs. You don’t want to be scrambling for replacements at the last minute. It would be best to consider who’s going to start for both teams before making any kind of wager. If you’ve been watching the games, then you know who’s been standing out. Those are the players that you should focus on when placing your bets. If you’re not sure, then you should take a look at the team’s depth charts to find out who’s in and who’s out.
The public perception is always an important factor to consider, especially when making any kind of wager on an event that’s highly anticipated by the general public. Do you really think that this year’s playoffs were going to be any different? There’s a reason why this year’s Grey Cup is being treated as the biggest game in the history of the CFL. The build-up to this year’s championship was incredible, and it was only heightened by the fact that it was supposed to be a rematch of last year’s epic championship game. The hype surrounding this year’s game is unlike anything that the sports world in Canada has ever seen, and it’s all because of the excitement that Blue Jays fans are feeling. The fact that this game is being played right here in Toronto only adds to the overall sense of expectation.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a casual football fan or a hardcore sports nut, there’s always something exciting about the upcoming championship game. We could talk all day about the factors that go into making a good bettor, but at the end of the day, it’s all about having the proper mindset and being able to follow the simple steps above. When that happens, then you’ll be well on your way to making some excellent wagers on the upcoming CFL championship game.
