Andrew Harris leads the CFL in rushing with 638 yards and five scores on 105 rushing attempts. Look for Winnipeg to even the score against the Tiger-Cats this Friday both SU and ATS.
BC only added another 54 yards on the ground; running the ball just 14 times. I think the Lions will be on the losing end of this West Division clash as well, but I still like their chances to cover with the spread.
I am sticking with the hot hand in this one with another easy win and cover for Calgary.
Johnny Football might be able to provide a spark for the 1-5 Alouettes, but I would still go with the UNDER on the total line as my top bet in this East Division tilt.
I am Looking for another strong effort from Edmonton this Thursday night to win at home both SU and ATS.
After last year’s stunning run to the Grey Cup title, it looks like the Argos are in for a long season this time around. Take the RedBlacks both SU and ATS on Thursday night.
After dropping an 18-13 decision on the road as six-point favorites in Week 4, the Tiger-Cats ended up on the wrong end of a 31-20 loss as 10-point favorites at home this past week. I see this slide slipping to three games on Saturday with Ottawa winning this game SU on the road.
Look for Winnipeg to close this series out with another win SU, but I am taking Toronto ATS with the 10.5 points.
Even though the offense could get a boost if Johnny Manziel starts at quarterback after coming to the team in Sunday’s trade with Hamilton, I am taking Edmonton both SU and ATS as long as the opening spread is less than 10 points.
Calgary have already covered a 7.5-point spread at home in double-digit wins against Hamilton and Ottawa, and I am betting that Calgary easily wins this game by a very comfortable margin this Saturday night.
They are 1-3 SU and 2-2 ATS in defense of last year’s Grey Cup title. With James Franklin taking over at quarterback for an injured Ricky Ray, I do not see Toronto bouncing back this week to cover at home.
With the total going under in the last few games between these two teams I am going to again bet on this game staying under the posted total line.
I see Masoli as being the difference this time around with solid production that leads to enough points to cover the spread.
I do think that BC will have a bit more luck scoring points this Saturday night on its home field to help take the backend of this home-and-home OVER again.
I think Edmonton wins and covers this time around, but I am going with the OVER on the total line as my top play.
Trevor Harris struggled in his first start against the Stampeders, but last week he threw for 342 yards and three scores against the Alouettes. However, I am going with Calgary again this Thursday night both SU and ATS.
I am going with Ottawa covering on the road as my “best bet” pick.
The playing status of Zach Collaros remains doubtful as he recovers from a concussion. This combined with how efficiently Hamilton’s offense has been able to move the ball has me leaning heavily towards the road team both SU and ATS on Thursday night.
I still think that Mike Reilly and Co. find a way to win this game as the CFL's top passer in total yards (694), but I am taking the Lions and the points in this game.
I think both team's offense has success this Friday night in another game that is going OVER the total.
