Hedging your way to a profit

One of the great things about In-Game betting is that you no longer have to pick the winner of the game before it starts, and that is an advantage we’ll look to capitalize on this weekend in the CFL.

The Montreal Alouettes visit BC Place on Saturday for a rematch of their Labour Day matchup in Montreal where the Als came away with the 30-25 win. The result leaves both teams on top of their respective conferences and puts the Als on a four-game winning streak.

The Lions come home licking their wounds, and may be without top receiving threat Geroy Simon who is listed as questionable, but still come in as heavy favourites at -5.5 on the spread and -230 straight up. BC is 3-1 at home, while Montreal is only 2-2 on the road, and it’s very possible that the defending Grey Cup champs will avenge last week’s loss and get back in the win column.

However what is unlikely is that the Lions will lead from wire-to-wire. The Als are listed at +190 on the money line, and in our opinion that is completely disrespectful to the third highest scoring team in the league, who’s only five points behind Calgary for the lead in points for, and Calgary has played an extra game as of this writing.

The Als have already beat this Lions’ club and this could very well be a preview of this year’s Grey Cup final. The thing about Montreal going off as +190 dogs, is that the number is high enough that a bet on Montreal, leaves you with the ability to come back and hedge with a Lions’ bet mid game.

Odds are the Als will lead at some point even if they don’t win. If you can watch the game and wait for that to happen and find BC at even money or even as a dog themselves, you can gaurantee to at least break even or win a few bucks on the dog Lions’ bet. Of course if the Als can win again, you’ll turn a profit as well. Even without the additional in-game bet, Als at +190 ML is just too good to pass up.

Play On Montreal +190 ML, plus in-game bet on BC (pending they go down).
