The 2022 Grey Cup championship game will be played Nov. 20th at Mosaic Stadium in Regina, Sask.
East Division champion Toronto Argonauts (11-7) will face the West Division champion Winnipeg Blue Bombers (15-3), who are seeking their third straight Grey Cup title.
Many CFL fans and bettors expected these two teams to reach the final, so it's no surprise to see both top seeds meet in the biggest game of the year. When the season began, the Blue Bombers were approximately 5-2 odds. The Argos went off at about 6-1. With just one game to play current odds at Spreads.ca now have Toronto at roughly 2-1 odds.
So, what's the best bet and prediction for what will happen this Sunday? Let's take a look.
Kickoff is Sunday at 6:00 pm ET / 3:00 pm PT.

Prediction (powered by Pointspreads.ca):
Winnipeg should win and cover and cement their place as a bona fide CFL dynasty.
But, we have a suspicion they won't -- they won't cover the spread, that is.
One reason why -- the Grey Cup championship game has a history of being unpredictable. Underdogs have won half of the last ten games outright (five upsets).
These two teams met just once during the regular season, way back in Week 4. Toronto took Winnipeg down to the final seconds, as the Bombers scored an unimpressive 23-22 win (but non-cover) over the Argos.
There are also some attractive props worth considering at Spreads.ca. Some involve Argos RB Andrew Harris:
The key to the Argos success at the Grey Cup, will be Running back Andrew Harris. Harris spent five years as the face of the Blue Bombers franchise, but during this year’s off-season, he jumped ship to join the Argos. Harris’ year was injury filled as the veteran only played in eight games during the regular season. One of those games were against the Blue Bombers, where he rushed for 111 yards on 22 carries. The 35-year-old has hinted that this could be his last CFL game, and if it is, what a way to go out then with a victory against his hometown team. – SIA Insights
With cold temperatures, this could slow down both teams, especially the passing game, and keep scoring lower than average.
We like the underdog Argos to cover +5.5 points and the game to fall UNDER 47.5.
WEATHER FORECAST: The 109th Grey Cup is just days away from taking place at Regina’s Mosaic Stadium and the weather forecast for the big game Sunday is looking promising. Environment Canada senior climatologist David Phillips suggests Sunday could be as good of a day as you could ask for: “Temperatures at kickoff time might be -2 (Celsius), after a full day of sun.
