It's not as easy to kneel out the clock in the CFL, and therefore the back-door potential is often huge. I've seen teams get 5-6 possessions in under 3 minutes. Ottawa will be hard to stop playing three-down football, for that reason, I'm going to take the +4.5 points and bank on the score being close one way or the other. Calgary is the better team, but Ottawa is a dangerous team, and I don't like spotting points to dangerous teams.

Free Pick: 
Pick- Ottawa +4.5 E.K.

The Stampeders are still the best team in the CFL by a wide margin when playing to form. They did lose to Winnipeg 29-21 on Oct. 26 as 3.5-point road underdogs. However, they beat the Blue Bombers 39-25 earlier in the year as 7.5-point favorites at home. I still think Calgary is on a mission to right the wrong from the past two seasons as West Division Champs and Sunday is the first step with the SU win and cover.

Free Pick: 
Take Calgary -4.5

If Ottawa has any hopes of completing the four-game sweep to return to its second Grey Cup title game in three seasons, its offense is going to need a significant effort from Trevor Harris. He finished fourth in the CFL in total passing yards (5,116) while throwing 22 touchdowns against 11 interceptions. This matchup should go OVER the current 53.5-point line, but I also like the RedBlacks to win and cover.

Free Pick: 
Take the Over 53.5

The total went OVER the closing line in seven of Hamilton's last nine games behind the highest scoring offense in the East with an average of 28.5 PPG. Jeramiah Masoli was second in the CFL throwing the ball with 5,209 total passing yards, and he was third on the list in passing touchdowns with 28 against 18 interceptions. I have the Tiger-Cats scoring enough points on Sunday to cover ATS as home favorites.

Free Pick: 
Take Hamilton -3
