The BC Lions are the oldest professional sports team in the city of Vancouver. They were founded in 1954 and named after The Lions peaks, one of the province’s most prominent landmarks. They are one of the CFL’s most consistently successful franchises having the longest active playoff streak of any current team (19 straight overall, good for second all-time) and have won six Grey Cups out of ten appearances. Lions fans love the winning culture that constantly surrounds the franchise as do bettors.

BC Lions Record
The last Grey Cup win for the BC Lions came in 2011 at their own home, BC Stadium in Vancouver. This was the franchise’s sixth Grey Cup. In 1997, CFL Hall of Famer and former Canadian Senator, David Braley purchased the Lions. In 2010, Braley controversially also purchased the Toronto Argonauts becoming the first and only owner to simultaneously own two CFL franchises until he eventually sold the Argos in 2015. The last time the Lions failed to make the playoffs is 1997.
The Lions are the definition of a mid-tier team in the western division as their sub .500 record in the last few years have proved. They are good enough to stomp on the losing teams like Winnipeg but not quite good enough to go deep into the playoffs, consistently losing in the first round to actual Grey Cup contenders like the Stampeders or the top teams in the Eastern division.
Wally Buono returns as the Lions’ head coach after the coaching carousel from his departure four years ago only produced one-and-done playoff appearances for the once mighty Lions. The team has consistently been middle-of-the-pack in both offense and defense although a lot of it depends on how healthy former Most Outstanding Player, Travis Lulay will be.
The return of Wally Buono may or may not return stability to a team that has been just sneaking into the playoffs. The Lions are a hard team to gauge. If Lulay stays healthy and the offense delivers the Lions can become Grey Cup contenders again. Bt if they continue to flounder amidst inconsistency, injuries, and the overall improvement of their division rivals, they could miss the playoffs for the first time in over two decades.
