Will 2018 be The Year of Johnny in the CFL? The Hamilton Tiger-Cats own Johnny Manziel’s contract rights, if the former Cleveland Browns quarterback wishes to head to Canada. Hamilton finished 6-12 last season and finished in the bottom-third of the league in points, passing yards, and passing touchdowns. So the Tiger-Cats could certainly use an injection of life into their offense. At the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, Hamilton is 8/1 to capture the 2018 Grey Cup.

The 2018 CFL season will begin on Thursday, June 14 when Edmonton travels to Winnipeg. At the Westgate, last season’s runner-up, Calgary, is a strong +200 favorite to win next year’s title. The Stampeders are followed by Edmonton (+500), Saskatchewan (+550), and Winnipeg (+700) on the opening odds sheet The defending champion, Toronto, is 8/1 with Hamilton and BC.
