Hamilton Tiger-Cats betting lines explained
|Hamilton Tiger-Cats||+2.5 (-110)||+155||Over 55.5 (-110)|
|Toronto Argonauts||-2.5 (-110)||-175||Under 55.5 (-110)|
The example above shows what a typical set of Tiger-Cats lines might look like at DraftKings Sportsbook or FanDuel Sportsbook.
The point spread here has the Ticats as 2.5-point underdogs against Toronto. Hamilton needs to win the game, or lose by two points or fewer, for point spread bets on the Ticats to pay off. If you win such a bet, you’d get a profit of $100 on a $110 bet. You can also bet on Toronto to win by three or more, with the same potential winnings.
Hamilton is a +155 underdog on the moneyline, which means a winning bet on the Tiger-Cats would pay a profit of $155 on a $100 bet. If, on the other hand, you bet the moneyline on Toronto at -175, you’d win $100 on a $175 bet — if the Argos win.
The total line is 55.5 points. Bet the over and you would win if the two teams combined to score 56 points or more. Bet the under and you would win on a combined score of 55 or fewer.
Hamilton Tiger-Cats props, futures & live betting
Prop betting is generally less concerned with the outcome of a game and more about team and player stats. Options might include over/under-style bets on total yards or passing, rushing or receiving yards for teams and players. Others ask questions like who will score the first TD, or whether a specific player will score.
Live betting allows you to bet on a lot of those same props and game lines while the game is happening at odds that change to reflect the circumstances.
Finally, futures are season-long bets on the Ticats’ future prospects. That might mean a bet on the team to win a certain number of games, make the playoffs, win the East or even claim the Grey Cup. The odds for futures bets will change all year long with the team’s chances, but you lock in the current odds when you place any Ticats futures bets.

Brief Hamilton Tiger-Cats history
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats trace their roots back to 1950 when the Hamilton Football Club, nicknamed the Tigers, merged with the Hamilton Wildcats and adopted the Tiger-Cats name. The team has won eight Grey Cup titles, but not since 1999, a Grey Cup drought that’s now the longest in the CFL. The 2021 Grey Cup marked Hamilton’s 22nd appearance in the title game.
Over the past decade, the Ticats have appeared in the 101st, 102nd, 107th and 108th Grey Cups, and lost all four.
The Tiger-Cats were a dynasty through the 1950s and 1960s, appearing in 10 Grey Cups. They even beat an NFL team in 1962, downing the nearby Buffalo Bills 38-21. In the late 1970s, Toronto Maple Leafs owner Harold Ballard bought the Tiger-Cats. The team was competitive throughout the 1980s, going to three straight Grey Cups in 1984, 1985 and finally winning in 1986.
Hamilton businessman David Braley bought the team in the late 1980s, and in the early 1990s a community-based group took over. The team struggled financially and on the field throughout the 1990s until Danny McManus and Darren Flutie led Hamilton to the Grey Cup game in 1998 and a win in 1999. Local Hamiltonian Bob Young bought the team in 2004. The team closed Ivor Wynne Stadium at the end of the 2012 season and moved into the new Tim Hortons Field in downtown Hamilton in 2014.
