With the news NFL Network will be airing 14 Canadian Football League games this season, let's take a quick look at one casino chain's odds to win the Grey Cup.

Harrah's, which usually books CFL futures and games, has installed the defending-champion Montreal Alouettes as favorites to capture another Grey Cup.

Here are the odds, which I picked up during my four-day jaunt to Las Vegas last week, as of June 21:

Montreal Alouettes: 3-2

Calgary Stampeders: 3-1

Saskatchewan Roughriders: 3-1

B.C. Lions: 6-1

Edmonton Eskimos: 6-1

Hamilton Tiger-Cats: 7-1

Winnipeg Blue Bombers: 12-1

Toronto Argonauts: 25-1

The first NFL Network game is Thursday night at 7 p.m. EST, when Montreal travels to Saskatchewan. The Als are three-point favorites, as Cincinnati Enquirer Bengals beat writer and all-around sharp sports fan Joe Reedy pointed out on Twitter.
