Toronto Argonauts betting lines explained
|Toronto Argonauts||+2.5 (-110)||+155||Over 55.5 (-110)|
|Winnipeg Blue Bombers||-2.5 (-110)||-175||Under 55.5 (-110)|
The spread appears with the odds in parentheses. The Argonauts are 2.5-point underdogs to Winnipeg. That means Toronto must win the game outright, or lose by one or two points, for spread bets on the Argos to win. If they do, the odds dictate you’ll win $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 that you wager. Otherwise, you can bet on Winnipeg to win by three or more. The odds also dictate you’ll win $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 that you wager.
The moneyline betting odds have Toronto as +155 underdogs. That means if the Argos win by any score, moneyline bets on Toronto will pay $155, plus your bet back, for every $100 you bet. With Winnipeg as a -175 favourite, bets on the Blue Bombers to win outright pay $100, plus your bet back, for every $175 that you bet, as long as the Bombers win.
The totals line also appears with the odds in parentheses. You can bet that the total combined score will land over or under 55.5. The half a point removes the possibility of a push.
Toronto Argonauts props, live betting, futures
Argos props let you bet on the performance of the team and its individual players. Most are either over/under or yes/no bets on various stat lines and accomplishments. Proposition bets may include over/unders on touchdowns, total yards, or passing, rushing or receiving yards, for either the team or a specific player.
Futures, meanwhile, let you bet on certain team accomplishments throughout the season, like making the playoffs, winning the East Division or winning the Grey Cup. Futures odds are available most of the year, as long as the Argos still have a chance at any of these accomplishments. The odds change with the team’s chances.
You can find CFL futures odds on our dedicated Grey Cup odds page.
Finally, live betting allows you to bet on Argos game lines and props while the games are happening at odds that change with the time, score and action on the field. Just remember, these odds can change in an instant. That means your best option for placing bets is a sportsbook app. It’s hard to get a bet down fast enough any other way.

Toronto Argonauts ownership history
With a record 17 Grey Cup wins and 23 Grey Cup appearances, the Toronto Argonauts are the CFL’s most storied franchise. The team formed in 1873 as part of the Argonaut Rowing Club. The club sold the team to a group of Toronto locals, including media mogul John Bassett, in 1957.
Bassett bought the team outright in 1971. However, Skyline Hotel chain president William Hodgson bought the team three years later. In 1979, Carling O’Keefe Breweries purchased the Argos. Then, in 1989 Carling O’Keefe sold the team to sports entrepreneur Harry Ornest, and the Argos moved into SkyDome.
Two years later, Ornest sold the Argos to a group including LA Kings owner Bruce McNall, NHL legend Wayne Gretzky and Canadian actor John Candy. The new ownership group persuaded Heisman Trophy winner Raghib “Rocket” Ismail to join the team over the NFL. In 1994, Candy died and McNall and Gretzky sold the Argos to TSN Enterprises. New York businessman Sherwood Schwarz bought the team in 2000, but in 2003, the CFL took over and handed the reins to local businessmen David Cynamon and Howard Sokolowski. In 2006, the Argos got former Heisman Trophy-winning running back Ricky Williams to join the team.
Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment chairman Larry Tanenbaum’s holding company — the Kilmer Group — and Bell Canada bought the Argos in 2015, but MLSE took over control a year later and moved the team to BMO Field. MLSE also owns the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors and Toronto FC.
Which NFL greats have played for the Argos?
