CFL: TOP 5 POWER RANKINGS as we enter the new season

The new CFL season is almost upon us, and it is time to answer the question of what are bet365 bet credits? Because you will need them, a jersey, and all your energy for your favourite team, as we look forward to gridiron games again. It has been a year since we last had a CFL game as the pandemic forced a blank 2020 season. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have had an entire extra year to feel good and celebrate their title win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, while in that time, the other teams have surely been itching to challenge and compete.

With 10 days left until the official kick-off of the season with a repeat of the championship game, we look at way too early power rankings for the season opener. The Tiger-Cats will no doubt be boiling over to make a statement against the Blue Bombers, while the defending champions will be hoping to set the tone for the season.

1 – Hamilton Tiger-Cats

The Tiger-Cats were the best team in the league the last time out. The team went 15-3 in the regular season and looked like a well-oiled machine that just needs maintenance. A big motivation for this season is that the Grey Cup will be decided at Tim Hortons Field. What better way to end their 22-year wait for the Grey Cup than to win it in your own backyard?

2- Winnipeg Blue Bombers

Of course, this had to be the second-best team at the very least. They are the defending champions for a reason. The Blue Bombers were 11-7 in 2019 on their way to the 11th Grey Cup for the Manitoba outfit. The good news for Winnipeg is that the front office managed to keep the championship team together, with a huge addition in Bryant Mitchell. The Blue Bombers are ready to go on another back-to-back run after achieving that in 1961 and 1962.

3- Saskatchewan Roughriders

The Roughriders went 13-5 in the last season before the pandemic struck, and they were close. With Hughes and Judge out, Micah Johnson and Larry Dean will be their main defensive cards this season. The Roughriders will be a tough team to beat and even harder to deny.

4- Montreal Alouettes

The Alouettes get an extra break with the first bye week of the season, but surely the team will be itching to get back out there. Their first game of the season will be away to Saskatchewan. Vernon Adams Jr. is a big reason why the Alouettes are an optimistic team this season.


5- Calgary Stampeders

The Stampeders must have felt rotten not being able to make the final or having a chance to win it all on their home turf. Revenge is in order. The Stampeders were 12-6 last time out and feel buoyed by the return of Bo Levi Mitchell after recovering from shoulder surgery. With a full year of rest and recovery, Mitchell should be back to his stellar best.
