Hello and welcome to CFLPicks.org. This website is run by two sports handicappers who consistently win money betting on a variety of sports, and are looking to help you win money betting on the Canadian Football League.
My business partner Kevin will help me with running the website and releasing the picks out to everyone who is following.
2012 CFL Picks Record:
Record = 45-30
Units +/- = +15.97
Because 2012 was our website’s first year in existence we didn’t post individual picks from previous CFL seasons, but I have personally tracked my bets and units won in my own spreadsheets and have posted the documented records below:
CFL picks for 2011 = 50-43 (+6.2 units)
CFL picks for 2010 = 54-38 (+14.5 units)
As you will see further down this page each unit is worth 2% of your bankroll. If you were betting $100 per unit on my picks for the past three seasons you would have profited $3,667.
I have been successful betting on the CFL in the past years and look to win some money for us all again this season. We believe in transparency and all of our past picks and record for the 2013 year will be displayed here on the homepage (near the top).
How will we keep track of units +/- for the CFL season?
I will be releasing 1 unit plays throughout the season on a regular basis, and sometimes 2 unit plays when I really think I have found some good value in a pick.
We recommend 1 unit represent 2% of your entire CFL bankroll. What this means is that if you had $1,000 to bet on CFL football this season every 1 unit play would be bet to win $20, while our bigger 2 unit plays would be $40 bets. This percentage is a conservative approach and you can decide to make 1 unit any percent you like of course, but I recommend that the maximum you rate 1 unit plays is 3% of your bankroll. That would mean the biggest plays would be 6% of your bankroll.
A conservative approach with your bankroll will allow you slowly build it up, and should make it near impossible to lose all of your money set aside for betting on the Canadian Football League if a bad run were to happen while still giving you the opportunity to enjoy some nice profits.
We highly suggest you shop around for the best lines available, as getting an extra half point can really make a difference when betting on football (and even more so in Canadian football where we often see single points scored).
We will always be releasing picks and betting “to win”. This means if we have a line set at -110 we would be risking 1.10 units to win 1 unit. For $100 bettors this would mean risking $110 to win $100.
The CFL season opens with “Canada Day Kickoff” weekend starting on Thursday June 27th and will run right up until the Grey Cup in November. There are 4 games each week and we will try and take advantage of some weak opening lines and sometimes weak lines in general.
We highly recommend you check out our top rated CFL betting sites as you will get the best lines and early releases of lines. Sometimes the line may move a few points either way and if we lock in a play we want to make sure that the line is available for you to bet.
A little bit about myself: I am a year round handicapper that will make plays in every sport you can imagine, as long as I find an edge or some value in the play. My main focuses are NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, College Football, College Basketball, and of course the Canadian Football League.
