The Grey Cup has ended up in Montreal the last two seasons and the Alouettes are favored to make it three in a row this year on the latest Grey Cup futures at Bodog.
The Alouettes have been the most dominant team in the East for a while now, representing the division in seven of the last nine Grey Cup games. In last year’s Grey Cup they defeated Saskatchewan for the second year in a row to record the championship repeat. This season Montreal boasts the highest scoring offense in the CFL, led by record-setting quarterback Anthony Calvillo. Montreal seems destined for another top back to the championship which is why they’re the Grey Cup favorites at Bodog at 3/1.
Before the Alouettes back-to-back Cup wins the last team to win the Grey Cup was the Calgary Stampeders. They currently own the best record in the West and follow the Als on the Grey Cup futures at Bodog at 10/3. Montreal may have the highest scoring offense in the league but Calgary is arguably just as dangerous when they have the ball. Led by QB Henry Burris and powerful running back Joffrey Reynolds the Stamps could be Grey Cup bound again.
Montreal may have dominated the East for what seems like a decade now, but they may finally have a true challenger in the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Winnipeg is a legitimate Grey Cup contender at 10/3 on the futures with an offense led by veteran QB Buck Pierce, if the often injured QB can stay healthy. The Bombers true strength this season is their defense, which they’re going to need to deliver if they hope to get past Montreal in the playoffs down the road.
