CFL 1st Half Picks Against the Spread

The Canadian Football League (CFL) continues its rise in popularity among fans and bettors alike. If you want to get in on the action, making first-half picks against the spread could be a great way to start. This bet type allows bettors to focus on one half instead of a complete game, giving them a better chance of making winning picks.

Below we will discuss several key factors to consider when making these CFL picks. Adding this to your betting strategy can increase your chances of turning a profit and make your experience even more enjoyable.

 

Factors to Consider When Making CFL 1st Half Spread Picks

Before making picks, bettors should consider several variables to increase their chances of winning. Considering these factors can increase your chances of success, from examining team performance to monitoring the most recent injury reports. Here are the top five things to think about while placing CFL wagers:

  1. Team Performance: A team's performance throughout the season can give important information about how successful they might be in a particular game. Bettors should evaluate a team's head-to-head record, recent form, and win-loss record.
     
  2. Records at Home and Away: A team's play at home might differ significantly from their play on the road. Bettors should check both teams' home & away records to get an idea of the role of home-field advantage for a particular game.
     
  3. Injuries: Losing a key player can throw off a team's game plan, and it can take teams time to adjust. When betting on the first half, avoid teams that are dealing with an injury to one of its key players. While this doesn’t always change the outcome, it does present a big challenge for any CFL team.
     
  4. Weather: Weather can also affect CFL games. Poor weather can make passing difficult, forcing teams to run the ball. This results in lower-scoring games that are primarily determined by the play of the offensive lines.

Betting Lines: Last but not least, it's critical to consider the betting lines while placing your CFL wagers. These lines will often move before a game starts, which can let you know which side the CFL consensus picks are being made on. This can show you how the public views a game, which can inform your betting strategy.
