The Calgary Stampeders and Hamilton Tiger-Cats have entered the CFL playoffs with the longest odds to capture the 110th Grey Cup.
Calgary’s odds of are by far the longest in the league as they have arguably the toughest route to the big game. The club is scheduled to visit the B.C. Lions in the West Semi-Final on Saturday and, if victorious, would then travel to Winnipeg to face the Blue Bombers in harsh weather conditions at IG Field.
The Stampeders went 1-5 against the top two teams in the West Division this season as part of a disappointing 6-12 campaign. The lone win occurred two weeks ago in a surprise 41-16 upset over B.C., though Calgary dropped its regular season finale against the Blue Bombers this past weekend 36-13.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have odds of to win this year’s Grey Cup, which is going to be played locally at Tim Hortons Field. The Ticats have the CFL’s longest championship drought at 23 years and recently missed an opportunity to win the Grey Cup at home when they fell to the Blue Bombers by a score of 33-25 in overtime in 2021.
The Ticats made several sweeping personnel changes this past off-season, bringing in Bo Levi Mitchell to be the team’s new franchise quarterback and signing marquee free agents James Butler, Duke Williams, Casey Sayles, and Jameer Thurman. The results were mixed as the team finished the regular season with an 8-10 record, the same mark they had one year ago.
Hamilton will visit the Montreal Alouettes in the East Semi-Final after dropping all three head-to-head matchups during the regular season. The Ticats also visited Montreal for the East Semi-Final last season, resulting in a 28-17 loss at Percival Molson Stadium.
The Grey Cup odds for each of the CFL’s nine teams are as follows.
