    CFL Betting Recap - Week 1

    League Betting Notes

    -- Underdogs went 2-1-1 SU in Week 1
    -- Underdogs went 4-0 ATS in Week 1
    -- Home teams posted a 2-1-1 SU record in Week 1
    -- Home/road teams posted a 2-2 ATS record in Week 1
    -- The 'Under' went 3-1 in Week 1

    Team Betting Notes

    -- It was a Grey Cup rematch in Canada's capital city to kick off the 2017 regular season, and Calgary (0-0-1) played Ottawa (0-0-1) to a 31-31 tie. If that sounds familiar, it should, as the Stampeders and RedBlacks played to a 26-26 tie in the first regular season meeting last season in Ottawa on July 8. The teams will meet again in Week 2 on Thursday night on the prairie in Southern Alberta. It was the only 'over' result of the opening weekend, too.

    -- Montreal (1-0) started its season on a positive note, edging Saskatchewan (0-1) by a 17-16 score. It is Montreal's third straight win against the RoughRiders, and their fourth straight win dating back to last season.

    -- The Riders, who started out 0-3 SU/1-2 ATS last season, are also 0-3 SU/1-2 ATS over their past three regular season openers. Their last Week 1 victory and cover came in the 2014 season against Hamilton (0-1), the last time Saskatchewan made the postseason.

    -- Speaking of the TiCats, they were rolled 32-15 on Sunday in their short trip up the QEW to Toronto (1-0). The Argos were underdogs by 3 1/2 points, but came away with the most lopsided win of the opening weekend. It was surprising considering the Argos were 1-2 SU/ATS last season against the TiCats, and 1-6 SU/ATS in the past seven regular season and postseason meetings.

    -- Edmonton (1-0) pulled off the opening weekend's most surprising win, topping the BC Lions (0-1) as 4 1/2-point underdogs, 30-27. It was Edmonton's first win in Vancouver since June 28, 2014 after going 0-2 SU/ATS over the past two seasons.

    -- Winnipeg (0-0) was on a bye for Week 1 with an odd amount of teams. The Blue Bombers will kick off their season in Saskatchewan on Saturday night. The Bombers are 4-1 SU/2-3 over their past five regular season games against the Riders.

    Thursday's CFL betting preview and odds: Redblacks at Stampeders
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Bo Levi Mitchell, who won the Most Outstanding Player in 2016, threw for 376 yards and two touchdowns last week versus Ottawa.

    Ottawa Redblacks at Calgary Stampeders (-7.5, 57)

    If you're already getting tired of betting baseball, don't sweat it. Las Vegas sportsbooks have plenty of wagering options beyond the bases. We're inside the Bellagio Las Vegas talking to sportsbook manager Dawn Bailey about the hottest wagers for the summer months.

    The Calgary Stampeders host the Ottawa Redblacks in the second game of a home-and-home set Thursday. The Stampeders erased a 14-point deficit in the final 10 minutes of regulation to force overtime, but Rene Paredes missed a short field goal to win it in the first OT session, and they had to settle for a 31-31 tie - their second stalemate with the Redblacks in the last three regular-season meetings.

    Calgary is 24-3 at home since the start of the 2014 season, including 9-0 in 2016, and hopes to continue its dominance at McMahon Stadium by upending the defending Grey Cup champions in the budding rivalry. Ottawa was left with a bittersweet feeling after going to overtime for the third time in the last four meetings with Calgary. The Redblacks were seemingly in control up by two touchdowns before Brendan Gillanders' fumble in the fourth quarter changed the complexion of the game, but they were aggrieved by some controversial calls that were not overturned by the CFL Command Centre. "It's really unpredictable and it's hard to know how things are going to be ruled on a replay," Ottawa coach Rick Campbell told reporters. "But the reffing is the least of our worries."

    TV:
    9 p.m. ET, TSN, RDS

    LINE HISTORY:
    The Stampeders opened as seven-point home favorites for Grey Cup rematch v.2.0 and that spread was bet up slightly to -7.5. The total hit the betting boards at 58.5 and was dropped down to 57. Check out the complete line history here.

    ABOUT THE REDBLACKS (0-0-1 SU, 1-0 ATS, 1-0 O/U):
    Trevor Harris started the season off with a bang as he completed 33-of-45 passes for 300 yards and three touchdowns in his first game as the undisputed starter following Henry Burris' retirement in the offseason. Free agent acquisition Kenny Shaw, who set career highs with 77 receptions and 1,004 receiving yards with the Toronto Argonauts last season, exited the game with an undisclosed injury as did running back William Powell after rushing for 30 yards on five carries. "I don't think Powell's overly serious," Campbell told reporters. "Kenny Shaw too as it seemed more of a minor thing."

    ABOUT THE STAMPEDERS (0-0-1 SU, 0-1 ATS, 1-0 O/U):
    Bo Levi Mitchell, who won the Most Outstanding Player in 2016, threw for 376 yards and two touchdowns to become the fifth quarterback in franchise history to surpass 15,000 yards. Marquay McDaniel caught 10 passes for 114 yards before leaving the game in the fourth quarter because of injury, but he's expected to suit up Thursday, however the outlook is not as rosy for DaVaris Daniels, who suffered an arm injury after hauling in four passes for 90 yards and will miss the rematch. Running back/kick returner Roy Finch was suspended with immediate effect by the CFL after testing positive for a banned substance.

    TRENDS:

    * RedBlacks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog.
    * Stampeders are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a home favorite of 3.5-10.0.
    * Over is 4-0 in RedBlacks last 4 games overall.
    * Under is 18-4 in Stampeders last 22 games in June.
    * Over is 5-0-1 in the last 6 meetings.

    CONSENSUS:
    The road chalk Redblacks are getting 54 percent of the action from users and the Under is picking up 51 percent of the totals wagers. View full consensus data for this matchup here.

    EXTRA POINTS:

    1. Mitchell has thrown for more than 300 yards in 14 of his last 19 regular-season starts.
    2. The Redblacks have lost three straight games in Calgary by an average of 30.3 points.
    3. The Stampeders are 19-4-2 against East Division teams since the start of 2014.

    Friday's CFL doubleheader betting preview and odds
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Ricky Ray completed 32-of-41 passes for a career-high 506 yards, which was 18 yards shy of the single-game franchise record set by Tobin Rote in 1960.

    BC Lions at Toronto Argonauts (-3, 54)

    The Toronto Argonauts look to build on their impressive season-opening victory when they host the BC Lions on Friday. The new-look Argonauts thumped the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 32-15 in the Battle of Ontario to send a message to the rest of the East Division that they are legitimate contenders after finishing 5-13 in 2016, and hope to take another step forward by beating the Lions at home for the first time in nearly four years.

    "It feels good to get off to a start like this," Toronto quarterback Ricky Ray told reporters. "It gives us confidence moving forward." The Lions opened the season with a heartbreaking 30-27 loss to the Edmonton Eskimos at BC Place. BC mounted a spirited comeback to erase a 10-point deficit late in the fourth quarter, but lost on a last-second field goal, and hope to bounce back by beating the Argonauts in Toronto for the fourth straight time. "It will be a great challenge as Ricky Ray, Marc Trestman and Jim Popp are all great football minds," BC linebacker Solomon Elimimian told reporters. "The biggest thing for us is to play our game which is fast and physical football."Trestman and Jim Popp are all great football minds," BC linebacker Solomon Elimimian told reporters. "The biggest thing for us is to play our game which is fast and physical football."

    TV:
    7 p.m. ET, TSN, ESPN2

    LINE HISTORY:
    The Argos opened as 1.5-point home chalk against the Lions and that spread has been bet up to an even three. The total hit the betting board at 55.5 and was quickly bet down to 51, before rebounding up to 54.5.

    ABOUT THE LIONS (0-1 SU, 0-0 ATS, 0-0 O/U):
    Elimimian made five tackles against the Eskimos to set a franchise record with 610 combined tackles while Nick Moore caught five passes for 98 yards in his first game since undergoing knee surgery last July. Ty Long missed a field goal and two extra points, including a convert with less than 60 seconds remaining, filling in for an injured Swayze Waters, who is expected to play Friday after suffering a thigh injury in training camp. Jeremiah Johnson, who rushed for 809 yards in 11 games last season, gained 92 yards on 14 carries to go along with a touchdown against Edmonton.

    ABOUT THE ARGONAUTS (1-0 SU, 1-0 ATS, 0-1 O/U):
    Ray completed 32-of-41 passes for a career-high 506 yards, which was 18 yards shy of the single-game franchise record set by Tobin Rote in 1960. DeVier Posey seems poised for a breakout year after catching seven passes for 147 yards and a touchdown while high-profile free-agent signing S.J. Green caught seven passes for 124 yards in his first game since tearing his ACL with the Montreal Alouettes on June 30, 2016. Starting defensive back Josh Mitchell was forced to leave the game with a knee injury in the third quarter and is likely to miss Friday's clash.

    TRENDS:

    * Lions are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog of 0.5-3.0.

    * Lions are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up loss.

    * Argonauts are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall.

    * Lions are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Toronto.

    * Under is 13-3 in the last 16 meetings in Toronto.

    CONSENSUS:
    The home chalk Argos are getting 57 percent of the action from users and the Over is picking up 52 percent of the totals wagers.
    EXTRA POINTS:

    1. Three of the last four meetings have been decided by three or fewer points.

    2. Ray needs three touchdown passes to become the sixth player in CFL history to reach 300.

    3. The Lions went 7-1 against East Division opponents in 2016.



    Montreal Alouettes at Edmonton Eskimos (-8, 50.5)

    The Edmonton Eskimos host the Montreal Alouettes on Friday in a series that has been one-sided of late. The Eskimos have won six straight meetings with the Alouettes, including the last three games at Commonwealth Stadium by an average of 15 points, and hope to continue their dominance after opening the season with an exhilarating 30-27 victory on the road over the BC Lions.

    Sean Whyte kicked a short field goal as time expired, but the victory came at a cost as star linebacker J.C. Sherritt ruptured his Achilles tendon and has been ruled out for the remainder of the season. Montreal had to sweat out a game-winning field goal attempt by Tyler Crapigna, whose kick sailed wide right, to squeak out a 17-16 victory in Darian Durant's debut with the Alouettes. Durant, who spent the previous 11 seasons in Regina, celebrated wildly after the final whistle and hopes to lead the Alouettes to their first win against Edmonton since a 47-24 triumph Oct. 5, 2013. "I think we did a pretty good job but we left a lot of yards and a lot of points out there," Durant told reporters. "We have the potential to be a very good offence if we can put it all together."

    TV:
    10 p.m. ET, TSN, RDS

    LINE HISTORY:
    The Eskimos opened as nine-point road favorites against the Alouettes and that line has been bet down to a eight. The total hit the betting board at 52 was bet down to 47.5 and has since been bet back up to 51.

    ABOUT THE ALOUETTES (1-0 SU, 0-1 ATS, 0-1 O/U):
    Durant completed 20-of-31 passes for 233 yards and two touchdowns against his old team while B.J. Cunningham caught four passes for 90 yards and a score. Montreal signed free agent quarterback Drew Willy, who has thrown for 8,539 yards and 39 touchdowns in 46 games in the CFL, after he was released by the Toronto Argonauts earlier in July. "We're always going to solidify that spot," Montreal general manager Kavis Reed told reporters. "If anything catastrophic were to happen to Durant we want to make certain that we have a seasoned guy around."

    ABOUT THE ESKIMOS (1-0 SU, 0-0 ATS, 0-0 O/U):
    Mike Reilly, who led the CFL with 5,554 passing yards in 2016, continued where he left off last season as he threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns against the Lions. Brandon Zylstra was the main beneficiary of Reilly's big night as he caught seven passes for 152 yards, including a 76-yard grab that set up Whyte's game-winning field goal as time expired. John White rushed for 104 yards and a touchdown while Duke Williams, who starred for Auburn University, hauled in four passes for 110 yards and a touchdown in his CFL debut.

    TRENDS:

    * Alouettes are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog.

    * Over is 4-1 in Alouettes last 5 games following a straight up win.

    * Over is 8-2 in Eskimos last 10 games following a straight up win.

    * Over is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Edmonton.

    CFL

    Saturday, July 1

    Saturday's CFL betting preview and odds: Blue Bombers at Roughriders
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Winnipeg re-signed Matt Nichols to a new multi-year deal after the veteran quarterback threw for a career-high 3,666 yards and 18 touchdowns after taking over from Drew Willy as the starting quarterback in Week 6 last season.

    Winnipeg Blue Bombers at Saskatchewan Roughriders (+1, 50)

    The Saskatchewan Roughriders look to bounce back from a deflating Week 1 loss when they host the Winnipeg Blue Bombers at Mosaic Stadium on Saturday. Saskatchewan was doomed by penalties, turnovers and a missed field goal by Tyler Crapigna as time expired in the 17-16 setback to the Montreal Alouettes, and hopes to cut down on its mistakes to avoid its second 0-2 start in as many years.

    "We just have to play smarter," Roughriders coach Chris Jones told reporters. "We took 21 penalties and had three turnovers and it's tough to beat a high school team when you do these things." Winnipeg, which had a Week 1 bye, looks to ride the wave of momentum created by their first playoff appearance in five years. The Blue Bombers won 11 games for the first time since 2003 and there's a sense of optimism floating around Investors Group Field following the addition of defensive end Tristan Okpalaugo, who was named the East Division's Top Rookie in 2014, and the new deals signed by starting quarterback Matt Nichols, wide receiver Clarence Denmark and kicker Justin Medlock. Winnipeg has won the last three meetings with Saskatchewan, including both games in 2016, and hopes to spoil the Canada Day party in Regina.

    TV:
    9 p.m. ET, TSN, ESPN2

    LINE HISTORY:
    The road Blue Bombers opened as 1-point favorites and the line has yet to move off the opening number. The total hit the betting board at 51.5, quickly was bet up to 52.5 and was driven down to 48, before rebounding up to 50.5.

    ABOUT THE BLUE BOMBERS (2016: 11-8 SU, 11-8 ATS, 11-6-1 O/U):
    Winnipeg re-signed Matt Nichols to a new multi-year deal after the veteran quarterback threw for a career-high 3,666 yards and 18 touchdowns after taking over from Drew Willy as the starting quarterback in Week 6 last season. Running back Andrew Harris had a huge year with his hometown team as he rushed for 974 yards to go along with 631 receiving yards, and wide receiver Weston Dressler caught 80 passes for 1,003 yards despite missing four games through injury, and big things are expected of the duo in 2017. Medlock was named the CFL's Most Outstanding Special Teams Player after setting a league record for most field goals in a season with 60.

    ABOUT THE ROUGHRIDERS (0-1 SU, 1-0 ATS, 0-1 O/U):
    Saskatchewan will play its inaugural CFL game at the 33,000-seat new Mosaic Stadium after spending the previous 80 years at Taylor Field. "This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to open a state of the art stadium in front of our fans," Saskatchewan president Craig Reynolds told reporters. "It's a tie-in with Canada 150 and it's just going to be an absolutely amazing day." Ricky Collins Jr. will be sidelined for a month after suffering a shoulder injury against Montreal and Nic Demski will handle the kickoff return duties while wide receiver Rob Bagg, who missed the season opener, is likely to suit up Saturday.

    TRENDS DATING BACK TO 2016:

    * Blue Bombers are 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games as a road favorite.

    * Roughriders are 19-4 ATS in their last 23 games as a home underdog of 0.5-3.0.

    * Over is 7-0 in Blue Bombers last 7 road games.

    * Over is 7-1 in Blue Bombers last 8 games overall.

    * Over is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings in Saskatchewan.

    CONSENSUS:
    The road chalk Bombers are getting 55 percent of the action from users and the OVER is getting 54 percent of the totals wagers.

    EXTRA POINTS:

    1. The Blue Bombers have won four of the past five meetings with the Roughriders.

    2. Saskatchewan is 2-18 against fellow West Division foes since the start of 2015.

    3. Nichols was 10-3 as the starting quarterback in 2016.

    Another year of early season CFL underdogs cashing like crazy

    The BC Lions won 28-15 as 1.5-point pups on Friday night and underdogs are now perfect 7-0 ATS in the first seven CFL games this season and are a crazy 29-6-2 ATS during Weeks 1-4 since 2015.

    You probably haven’t noticed, but the 2017 Canadian Football League season has kicked off, but with it being Canada’s 150th birthday this Saturday it’s an appropriate time to take notice of a trend that seems to pop up every year north of the border.

    Underdogs once again are off to a red hot start in the CFL. Week 2 has is under way and pups are currently a perfect 7-0 against the spread so far this season.

    That makes it the third consecutive year that underdogs went a perfect 4-0 ATS in the first week of the CFL season, but don't worry eager football bettors, the dogs don’t start barking there.

    In 2015, underdogs started the year a perfect 8-0 ATS and were 11-2-1 ATS (84.6 percent) through the season’s first four weeks. While last season, teams getting the points went 11-4-1 ATS between Weeks 1 and 4.

    That means over the past two-plus years, underdogs are an unfathomable 29-6-2 ATS in the first four weeks of the season. That equates to an 82.9 percent cash rate. Whoa.

    The trend seems to suggest that sportsbooks, just like you and me, maybe don't pay the most attention to the CFL during the early part of the season. Plus, with so much roster turnover year-to-year the teams can be hard to gauge. Heck, a team under .500 won the Grey Cup last year. So the time to act is now.

    Two more underdogs cashed on the gridiron Friday night with the BC Lions winning 28-15 SU versus the Toronto Argonauts as 1.5-point road dogs and the Montreal Alouettes covered as 9-point road pups in their 23-19 loss against the Edmonton Eskimos.

    Week 2 closes on Canada Day the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (0-0 SU/ATS) make their season debut when they visit the Saskatchewan Roughriders (0-1 SU, 1-0 ATS), with no Vince Young unfortunately, as 1.5 point road dogs.

    So while the talent level is nowhere near as high, the balls and field are a little bigger and there are only three downs, cash is still green no matter what the league. And that is exactly what CFL underdogs are producing early in the season.

    Six truly Canadian bets to make on this 150th Canada Day

    Canada celebrates its 150th birthday on July 1 and we are paying homage to its Canadian roots with bets on the CFL, Blue Jays, MLS, and other Canuck clubs.

    This July 1 is a biggie for those of us north of the border. Canada celebrates its 150th birthday, which isn’t very old when you size it up against some other countries. Just think, it took the Cubs 108 years to win a World Series. The “True North” was just 41 years old when that drought started.

    Many people don’t know but Covers is Canadian, eh. That’s right. While we have roots in Nevada and a network that spans the entire sports betting globe, we’re headquartered in tranquil Atlantic Canada. And for all the glitz and glam of the Vegas Strip or the betting-friendly culture overseas, we wouldn’t change a thing. We love it here. We love Canada.

    So, it is with great national pride that we share the most Canadian bets you can make during the Canada Day Weekend. Bet them. Fade them. Do whatever you like. As long as you have fun… and some cold beer in the fridge.

    CFL

    It doesn’t get any more Canadian than three-down football. The CFL will be at the tail end of Week 2 on July 1, with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers visiting the Saskatchewan Roughriders as 1-point road favorites.

    Underdogs have been the hot play in the early workings of the CFL the past two seasons and that trend is holding steady again in 2017. Playing into that pattern is the fact that the Riders are 5-2 ATS in their last seven home stands against the Bombers and have gone 30-13 ATS in their last 43 games as home underdogs. If you know any Riders fans, you know why Saskatchewan is cash money when getting points in front of the Regina faithful.

    Toronto Blue Jays

    The Jays are at home to the hated Red Sox for a Canada Day matinee, with the first pitch scheduled for 1:07 p.m. ET Saturday. Given the weather, I’ll either be mowing the lawn and listening the game on the radio or hunkered inside away from the rain watching it on TV. Either way, booze is involved.

    Toronto was on a bit of a July 1 run last year, having won three straight Canada Day games while outscoring opponents 23-6 in those holiday matchups. Then they ran into a red-hot Cleveland squad last summer, and dropped a 2-1 decision in a 19-inning marathon in front of the T.O. faithful.

    The Blue Jays are struggling with four wins in their last 10 outings, including losing two of three games with the Orioles this week. Toronto sends lefty Francisco Liriano to the mound Saturday, while the BoSox trot out strikeout machine Chris Sale. You really know how to spoil the celebration, don't you Boston?

    Liriano has been great at home, with the team winning each of his last five starts at the Rogers Centre, where he boasts a 4.06 ERA – a massive improvement over his road ERA which is north of 7.00. If you’ve just GOT TO bet the Blue Jays on Canada Day, at least you’ll be getting an OK price on them with Sale drawing major juice.

    MLS

    All three Canadian Major League Soccer franchises are in action Saturday, but only Montreal is at home. The Impact host D.C. United as -140 favorites in the three-way betting at SportsInteraction.com, while Toronto FC is +237 at FC Dallas, and Vancouver is +377 visiting Chicago.

    Toronto is at the top of the Eastern Conference with a record of 10-2-5, fueled by last year’s heartbreaking loss on penalty kicks to Seattle in the MLS Championship. It has, however, struggled with Dallas FC in the past. Toronto picked up a 1-0 win over Dallas last May – its lone victory over Dallas FC going back to 2009. In that 10-game span, Toronto FC is just 1-6-3 versus Dallas and 0-3-3 inside Toyota Stadium. The +249 on the draw for Saturday looks mighty tempting.

    Wimbledon

    Time for a little Canadian history on the July 1 holiday. In 1867, Canada’s confederation birthed a new country and independence from Britain (kind of… the Queen is still on our money) but there are plenty of ties to the old country. We still call a couch a “chesterfield” and dinner is often referred to as “supper”.

    With Wimbledon serving up tennis action at the All England Club for a fortnight, the best Canadian bet on the British grass is Milos Raonic, who is priced at +1,600 to win the third Grand Slam of the season. Raonic, who has already garnered some notable action at sportsbooks, lost in the 2016 Wimbledon final to Andy Murray in straights sets.

    On the women’s side, Canadian cover girl Eugenie Bouchard, known more for her bikini pics on Instagram than her success on the court, is set as a +6,600 long shot to win Wimbledon. Bouchard, who is terribly inconsistent and has been plagued by injuries, was a Wimbledon finalist in 2014. She lost to Petra Kvitová 6-3, 6-0 and then bowed out in the first and third rounds the next two years respectively.

    NHL futures

    Gawd, the NHL playoffs were fun. And that good time has rolled right into the offseason, thanks to the Vegas Golden Knights expansion draft and a flurry of trades and signings that will only continue throughout the summer.

    For Canadian hockey fans, the hopes of bringing the Stanley Cup back over the border – for the first time since Montreal won in 1993 – rests on the shoulders of the young Edmonton Oilers, who are currently the second overall favorite at +1,000 to hoist Lord Stanley at SportsInteraction.com (behind Pittsburgh at +700).

    Edmonton has the league’s top talent in Connor McDavid and was one of the most balanced teams in the NHL, ranked eighth in both goals for and goals against. The Oilers have been a very popular futures bet already into the offseason, and aren’t alone among Canadian teams drawing futures money.

    Surprisingly, the Toronto Maple Leafs have taken some notable action in Las Vegas, and are around +1,600 to win the Cup for the first time since 1967. If you thought the 150th Canada Day celebrations were impressive, they wouldn’t hold a candle to the party the country would throw if the Leafs won the Cup.

    NBA futures

    Toronto stands alone as Canada’s NBA franchise, ever since the Vancouver Grizzlies took off for Memphis back in 2001. The Grizz drafting "Big Country" as the face of the franchise is still one of the biggest black eyes for Canadian sports, right up there with trading Wayne Gretzky to L.A. and Ben Johnson's bullshit at the 1988 Olympic Games. WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?! (To Vancouver's defense, the back end of that 1995 draft class was straight-up rotten and Bryant Reeves wasn't all that bad: 12.5 ppg, 6.9 rpg).

    But I digress. The Raptors are in a tough spot. They’re one of the Top 5 teams in the Eastern Conference, and don’t really have a chance to win the East until LeBron calls it quits or jumps to the West. They’re too good to nab a top lottery pick and Canadian tax laws and cold winter nights have kept big-time free agents from knocking on the door. The franchise may have hit its ceiling - and not in that good but confusing Michael Jordan kind of way.

    Toronto is currently +12,500 to win the NBA title – behind teams like New Orleans, Milwaukee, and even the damn Lakers and Sixers have better odds at this point – and is set at +3,000 to at least win the East. The Raptors have to make a decision on Kyle Lowry, who’s a free agent this summer, and beyond him the realistic free agent pool is about as sexy as late, great Canadian comedian John Candy in booty shorts.

    If you want to make a Canadian-inspired futures bet this July 1, why not take a swing on our greatest basketball product since Steve Nash: Andrew Wiggins and the Minnesota Timberwolves. The T-Wolves were +20,000 to win the NBA title before trading for superstar guard Jimmy Butler during the draft. Adding his scoring prowess alongside Wiggins and Carl-Anthony Towns has trimmed Minny to as low as +5,000 at some books. Whoa Canada!
