With the NBA and NHL seasons officially coming to an end, many sports bettors are experiencing a hollow feeling. We want action. We need action. But what is there to bet on?
The Canadian Football League, of course!
The CFL was founded in 1958 and features a nine-team league (two divisions) playing a 21-week regular-season schedule. Each team plays 18 games broken up by three bye weeks.
Almost all sportsbooks offer CFL odds. And luckily for subscribers, we have several profitable Bet Labs PRO systems that bettors can take advantage of all summer long.
After analyzing Friday night’s matchup between the Montreal Alouettes and Edmonton Eskimos using the betting tools available at Sports Insights and The Action Network, I’ve identified sharp action coming down on both the spread and the over/under.

Betting Terms to Know
Steam Move: Sudden, drastic and uniform line movement across the market caused by an overload of sharp action from respected players.
Reverse Line Movement (RLM): When the betting line moves in the opposite direction of the betting percentages. It’s a top smart money indicator.
Line Freeze: When one side is getting heavy betting, but the line won’t budge, indicating sharp liability on the other side.
Juice: The tax or commission that bettors must pay sportsbooks in order for them to accept your wager. A -115 juice means a bettor would have to wager $115 to win $100.
