To all of our American friends, we hope you had a great Thanksgiving! For our fellow Canadians, we hope that Thursday brought you lots of football enjoyment and that you’re ready for this Sunday’s Grey Cup. We cashed the Bears and Saints to cover the spread $$$ and will be firing big on the Stamps to take down the November Classic.
Sunday Best Bets
For Sunday’s action, the most popular bets as of this writing are the New England Patriots to cover as 9.5-point favorites against the New York Jets. The Jaguars and Bills to play under 37 points, and the Minnesota Vikings to cover as 3.5-point favorites in a big Sunday Night Football matchup with the Green Bay Packers.
Is this the year the Calgary Stampeders can finally finish the job? They’ve owned the league’s best regular season record for three straight seasons, but have lost each of the last two Grey Cup games. The Stamps opened as 6.5-point favorites for Sunday’s matchup with the Ottawa Redblacks, but that number quickly moved to Calgary -4. Just over 70 percent of Grey Cup bettors like the Stampeders to cover the spread and take home the hardware.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Weeks ago when the Toronto Raptors flew out of the gate with a great start, we thought they might have a tough time covering point spreads down the road. Now that they own the NBA’s best record at 14-4 straight up, we’re seeing just that as Toronto sits in the middle of the pack at 9-9 against the spread. With the Raptors trying to manage Kawhi Leonard’s minutes and oddsmakers making them big favorites every time they take the floor, this might be more than a passing trend.
