Sunday Nov 26, 2017

Toronto is in its first Grey Cup Championship since 2012 when it beat Calgary 35-22, but this time around you get the feeling that the Argonauts are just happy to be here. The Stampeders on the other hand have some unfinished business after they were stunned by Ottawa 39-33 in overtime of last season’s title game as nine-point favorites.

While Calgary did not finish this regular season in the best of form, I am still going to lay the seven points and take the Stamps to get it right this time around both SU and ATS.

Free Pick: 
Take Calgary -7
Sunday Nov 19, 2017

With Ricky Ray playing at top form under center, Toronto’s offense averaged 32.9 points over its final seven games as opposed to a season scoring average of 26.8 points per game. Ray was second in the CFL in both passing yards (5,546) and passing touchdowns (28). His top target in the passing game was SJ Green with 1,462 receiving yards and 10 touchdown catches.

I am leaning towards Saskatchewan in this game given the West’s domination over the East all season long, but the ‘best bet’ pick is the OVER on the 53-point total line

Free Pick: 
Take the Over 53
Sunday Nov 12, 2017

This should be a great matchup between two division rivals that know how to put points on the board. While I am tempted to go with the OVER on the 56-point total line as my top play, I am going with Edmonton getting the SU win on the road.

Free Pick: 
Take the Over 56

BC is playing for pride at 7-10 SU (6-10-1 ATS), but it did manage to snap a recent five-game losing streak (SU and ATS) with last week’s 36-27 upset against Winnipeg as a 6.5-point road underdog. The total stayed UNDER in the Lions’ 28-15 victory over Toronto earlier this season, but I have both teams lighting things to take the total OVER this time around.

Free Pick: 
Take the Over 52
Saturday Nov 04, 2017

Do not go to sleep on the Roughriders in the upcoming playoffs at 10-7 both SU and ATS. They have won four out of their last five games SU including that big upset against Calgary on the road as 10-point underdogs in Week 18. Both teams need to win this game to help their postseason position which should help to drive the total score OVER the betting line.

Free Pick: 
Take the Over 54.5
Friday Nov 03, 2017

A late season swoon by the CFL’s most dominant team has led to back-to-back losses to Saskatchewan at home and Edmonton on the road while only managing to put a combined 27 points on the board. Calgary would have probably opted to rest most it starters as the top seed in the playoffs, but I now believe that there is some sense of urgency to end the season on a positive note. While the actual betting line will be impacted with Winnipeg’s injury situation, I like the Stampeders’ chances to cover ATS by making a statement that the 2017 Grey Cup title still has to go through them.

Free Pick: 
Take the Stamps -9.5
Friday Nov 03, 2017

The Tiger-Cats dug themselves into a 0-8 hole to start the season, but then have actually turned things around at 5-4 SU over their last nine games while going 7-2 ATS. In last week’s 41-26 loss to Ottawa as a 6.5-point road underdog, Hamilton’s Jeramiah Masoli torched the RedBlacks’ secondary for 438 yards passing and four touchdowns. Bank on the Tiger-Cats closing things out on a winning note both SU and ATS.

Free Pick: 
Take Hamilton -12
Saturday Oct 28, 2017

The Blue Bombers are trying to hold onto the No. 2 seed in the West after dropping two of their last three games SU. They did manage to cover in last Saturday’s one-point loss to Toronto as three-point road underdogs to improve to 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games. Matt Nichols completed 75.8 percent of his 33 passing attempts for 268 yards and a score in last week’s loss and I am looking for another big effort this Saturday in what should be a victory at home both SU and ATS.

Free Pick: 
Take Winnipeg -5.5
Friday Oct 27, 2017

The Roughriders clinched the final spot in the CFL postseason with last Friday’s stunning 30-7 upset on the road against Calgary as heavy 10-point underdogs. At 9-7 both SU and ATS, Saskatchewan can still improve its playoff position with a pair of wins to close out the season while getting some help from the teams with better records in the West right now. I cannot see Montreal putting up much of a fight in this one, given just how bad it has been playing since late August. Lay the points on the inflated spread and take the Roughriders to still cover at home.

Free Pick: 
Take Saskatchewan -16.5
