HOW TO READ CFL STANDINGS
The Canadian Football League Standings are listed in order of division within each CFL Division, the East and the West.
After the team names on the CFL Standings, the first three columns are the most important to follow and they also dictate the order of the standings.
SU, Home, Road are easily to follow and based on the 14-game schedule that was played in the 2021 CFL regular season.
SU means Straight Up and also determines the overall record of each team. The Home and Road numbers are the records for each of the teams as the host or as the visitor.
The Records are updated Live on the CFL Standings after each game concludes.
After the first four columns, the next two fields are the PF and PA.
PF - POINTS FOR OR POINTS SCORED
PA - POINTS AGAINST OR POINTS ALLOWED
The Points For (PF) is a great tool for smarter wagers with pro football and it shows you which teams score the most points while the Points Against (PA) can determine the strength or weakness of a team.
While the VegasInsider.com CFL Standings doesn't show the Point Differential, it's a great technique in when making your wagers. The team with a high point differential has a better chance of making the playoffs and eventually reaching the Super Bowl.
The Home and Away records in the CFL Standings are a great added feature and it shows how well a team plays as a visitor. Most teams that make the postseason will own a winning record at home since it's known that most clubs hold serve in their own venues.
ATS - Against the Spread Record
For our purposes, the Against the Spread (ATS) record is very important for bettors as it shows the success of a team against the point-spread. Even if a team has a winning Straight Up (SU) record, they might not be great ATS because the oddsmakers adjust the points accordingly.
O/U - Over/Under Record
The Over/Under Record is used to measure a team's record versus the Total or Over/Under for each game they play in. You'll see teams with great offensive or weak defensives usually have a better Over record while great defensive units and weaker attacks lean to Under records.
