The intrigue continues to mount in the CFL's West Division while the East is a rather partisan two-team race.

The latest: The Calgary Stampeders' win over the BC Lions brought the Stamps to within half of a game of their divisional rival, while the Toronto Argonauts became the first team from the East to clinch a playoff berth.

Here are the latest Grey Cup odds for the 2022 CFL season.

Best CFL Grey Cup odds

The favourite: Winnipeg Blue Bombers (+110)

Winnipeg was on bye last week, which is why its odds held steady.

The team suffered a minor hiccup in Week 15 but still sits comfortably atop the West Division.

The Blue Bombers are 12-2 after losing to the Tiger-Cats. The gap between Winnipeg and the rest of the pack shortened, but it still rests comfortably above the competition.

The Bombers' defence continues to stifle the rest of the league, allowing the fewest points per game (21.2) in the CFL while holding opponents to 20 points or fewer in four of their last six games.

Winnipeg's offence has been fine, too, averaging 28.8 points per contest, which is good for third in the league. Quarterback Zach Collaros has thrown for 3,578 passing yards, ranking second in the CFL.

Receiver Dalton Schoen sits fifth in the league with 988 receiving yards. The team stuck with the run game through its struggles and has seen improvement as the season progressed.

Brady Oliveira has a league-high 161 carries and has recorded 757 rushing yards.

The Blue Bombers' pedigree as the back-to-back champions, paired with their 12-2 record, keep them as the favourites.

Other Grey Cup choices

Best value: Calgary Stampeders (+500)

The Stampeders' odds rose after a convincing, 25-11 win over the Lions that helped them clinch a playoff berth.

Jake Maier's numbers weren't eye-popping in the win, but they didn't need to be. The quarterback, who overtook Bo Levi Mitchell as the starter, went 27-of-33 for 294 passing yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in the victory.

The Stampeders have been excellent offensively, averaging 30.9 points per game this season, which ranks first in the CFL. The team's offence has scored 31.2 points per game since Maier supplanted Mitchell.

Ka'Deem Carey leads the rushing attack. The former Chicago Bears back tops the CFL with 857 rushing yards.

The defence has held its own, too, surrendering 23.5 points per contest (fifth in the league).

Calgary hosts Toronto in Week 17.

Team to watch: Toronto Argonauts (+450)

No one is confusing the Argonauts for an elite squad, but they continue to roll through an East Division that's in shambles.

The team clinched a playoff berth with its convincing 45-15 win over the RedBlacks, becoming the first team in the division to make the postseason.

Not only does Toronto hold a two-win advantage in the division, but no other East team has looked particularly competent. The Alouettes edged the Tiger-Cats, 23-16, last week, which has made the East a two-team division moving forward.

The Argonauts are 8-5 with a plus-41 point differential. Comparatively, the second-place Als are 6-7 and own a plus-1 point differential. Even with it being a two-team race in the East, there seems to be a pretty significant gap between these squads.

Toronto looks like a team positioned to dominate its division. Its biggest concern is whether a dangerous West Division team crosses over into its side of the bracket come playoff time.

Grey Cup odds notes

  • Vernon Adams Jr.'s second start with the Lions wasn't nearly as good as his first. He completed just 12-of-24 passes for 151 yards and was under constant pressure in a losing effort. This team needs Nathan Rourke under centre, but there's still no timetable for his return.
