While their roots can be traced back as far as 1869, Hamilton Tiger-Cats CFL betting options have been available since 1950. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats were formed by the merger of the Hamilton Tigers with the Hamilton Wildcats. They are charter members in the CFL. Since 2003, Hamilton has been owned by Bob Young, a software industry tycoon. The Tiger-Cats won eight Grey Cup Championships from 1953 to 2015, when they were members of the CFL East Division.
Hamilton Tiger Cats Record
After 62 years at the Ivor Wynne Stadium, the Tiger-Cats moved to the Tim Hortons Field in 2014. They also acquired quarterback Zach Collaros, a Toronto Argonauts player. In their new arena, they were unbeaten for the season. Grey Cup-winning coach Kent Austin, who was a catalyst for their turnaround, took over the franchise a year before. The Grey Cup was won by the Ticats in 1999, but they were close to winning it again in 2014.
The rivalries between the Tiger-Cats and their provincial neighbours, the Alouettes and the Argonauts, are common among the Tiger-Cats. The Ticats face the Argos at the annual Labour Day Classic, which is usually held in Hamilton. They are 31-15 all-time against the Argos. The playoffs are a completely different story. The Argos have won 10 to 7 games against the Ticats. In the playoffs, the Ticats are more successful against the Alouettes (6-0), which they have been since 1996.
Before a knee injury forced him out of the CFL for the remainder of 2015, Zach Collaros looked like the best quarterback in the CFL. The Ticats have the potential to win again if he is healthy and continues his dominance. Although the team finished the regular season with a declining record, they still led the league at +139 in point differential and finished first and third in offense and defense.
With the recent acquisition of Chad Owens, 2012 Most Outstanding Player and Collaros’ return to the team, the Tiger-Cats could be heading back to the Grey Cup. Owens also set a new pro-football record for all-purpose yards. With most of their key players back, any other Grey Cup appearance could be disappointing.

Rivalry battles are common during the Canadian Football League season, as there are only nine professional football teams in Canada. It is hard to match the intensity of the Battle of Alberta between the Calgary Stampeders, Edmonton Eskimos and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, but the rivalry between the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Toronto Argonauts is close behind.
The Cats vs Argos Labor Day Classic was established in 1948. It predates the official debut season (1958) by the Canadian Football League. Hamilton gamblers have been able to back the Tiger-Cats in recent years, with a 15-8 series record between 1988 and 2015.
