I was in Las Vegas last week and stopped off at the Wynn sports book to place a small NCAA basketball wager. While I was there I picked up the line for the 2011 Grey Cup by team which I thought was rather interesting...
1) Montreal: Favorite at 12/5
2) Calgary at 5/2
3) Saskatchewan at 4/1
4) BC at 6/1
5 tie) Hamilton and Edmonton at 7/1
7) Toronto at 8/1
8) Winnepeg at 12/1
Of course this read is extremely early as there are still players that will change teams and training camp does not open for months.
I did think that it was interesting that the Eskimos placed in a 5th place tie despite the fact that they finished 7th overall last season. I guess that you could argue that at with the run at the end of the season that they may have already been around the 5th best team in the CFL -- maybe even better. However, since season's end the team has undergone numerous changes. It is certainly debateable as to whether or not they are for the better.
PS -- My basketball bet was on the recently eliminated VCU...
