Hamilton vs Winnipeg 2019 Grey Cup Odds, Preview & Pick

Okay CFL betting enthusiasts, with the 2019 Grey Cup Championship showdown set to cap off what has been another thrilling CFL campaign, it’s time to take a look at this year’s title tilt and the two teams that will brawl for it all. Will the red-hot and favored Hamilton Tiger-Cats cap off their stellar 2019 campaign with a championship win or will Winnipeg take care of business at home to pull off the huge upset? With both teams going all-out for the win in this one, let’s find out which team is offering the best value against their CFL odds.

Hamilton vs Winnipeg 2019 Grey Cup Odds, Preview & Pick

Why Bet On Hamilton?

There are a bunch of great reasons to back Hamilton to get it done in the Grey Cup title tilt. First and foremost, Hamilton is on fire, having won an impressive seven straight games. More importantly, the Tiger-Cats looked absolutely phenomenal in routing Edmonton 36-16 in last weekend’s Eastern Conference finals.

Hamilton is also the statistically better team on both sides of the ball in this championship matchup and rank a stellar first in scoring (30.6 ppg) and points allowed (19.1 ppg). Another good reason to back the Tiger-Cats is the fact that they’ve won both regular season meetings against the Eskimos by recording a 23-15 home win in July and a 33-13 road victory on September 27. Last but not least, Hamilton has the more prolific quarterback in this matchup in veteran, Dane Evans.

Betting Trends

  • Tiger-Cats are 8-1-2 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
  • Tiger-Cats are 7-1-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight up win.
  • Tiger-Cats are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win.
  • Tiger-Cats are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 playoff games.

Why Bet On Winnipeg?

While Winnipeg narrowly got past Saskatchewan 20-13 in last weekend’s Western Conference Finals, there are some good reasons to back the Blue Bombers in this contest. First and foremost, Winnipeg has won three straight while holding each of their last two opponents to 14 points or less. This contest will also be a home affair for the Blue Bombers and they’ve won two straight in their comfy confines. Last but not least, Hamilton’s only loss in their last 10 games came on the road.

Betting Trends

  • Blue Bombers are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 home games.
  • Blue Bombers are 16-5-1 ATS in their last 22 games following a straight up win.
  • Blue Bombers are 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 games following a ATS win.
  • Blue Bombers are 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games overall.
  • Blue Bombers are 27-11 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
  • Blue Bombers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 playoff home games.

2019 Grey CupExpert Analysis and Prediction

I won’t waste a whole lot of time making my CFL Grey Cup pick, simply because I fully believe that Hamilton is going to roll all over Winnipeg to get the championship-winning victory. Hamilton has been the best team in the CFL on both sides of the ball all season, not to mention, they’ve won nine of their last 10 games.

While Winnipeg has won three in a row, the Blue Bombers are just 4-4 over their last eight games and that kind of mediocrity is why they’re going to lose at home against the superior Tiger-Cats. Hamilton has gone 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 road dates against Winnipeg while also going 4-0-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.

The Tiger-Cats are also 5-0 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 road games.  Dane Evans tops the 300-yard passing mark to lead Hamilton to the huge Grey Cup win and ATS cover.

Pick: Hamilton 33 Winnipeg 21

Edmonton vs Hamilton 2019 CFL Eastern Finals Odds & Preview

Okay CFL betting faithful, with the 2019 Canadian Football League staging its annual semifinal showdowns this weekend, it’s time to take a look at the 2019 CLF Eastern Finals matchup featuring the Hamilton Tiger-Cats hosting the Edmonton Eskimos. With the winner of this contest moving on to the Grey Cup Championship, let’s find out which team is offering the best value against their CFL odds.

Edmonton vs Hamilton 2019 CFL Eastern Finals Odds & Preview

  • Where: Tim Hortons Field, Hamilton, Ontario
  • TV: ESPN
  • Live Stream: CFL.ca
  • 2019 CFL Eastern Finals Odds: Hamilton -5.5 / Total: 50

Why Bet On Edmonton?

While Edmonton managed to subdue Montreal 37-29 in last weekend’s Eastern Conference playoff matchup, the Eskimos are an uninspiring 2-3 over their last five games and just 3-7 over their last 10 games overall. While quarterback Trevor Harris has had a fine season by completing a blistering 71.8 percent of his passes while throwing for 4,027 yards with 16 touchdowns and just six interceptions, Edmonton ranks a modest seventh in scoring (22.6 ppg), although they also rank an encouraging third in points allowed (22.2 ppg). Edmonton has also gone 4-6 SU on the road this season and 3-6 ATS away from home.

Betting Trends

  • Eskimos are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games in November.
  • Eskimos are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 playoff road games.
  • Eskimos are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 playoff games.
  • Eskimos are 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 road games.
  • Eskimos are 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games overall.
  • Eskimos are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win.
  • Eskimos are 1-8-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
  • Eskimos are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win.

Why Bet On Hamilton?

Hamilton is on fire coming into this contest riding the wave of an impressive six-game winning streak that includes their narrow 21-18 conference semifinal win over Toronto last weekend despite failing to cover the chalk as a 9-point home favorite. The Tigers-Cats are a blistering 9-1 SU over their last 10 games and bankroll-boosting 7-2-1 ATS during the span. More importantly, Hamilton ranks a stellar first in scoring (30.6 ppg) and equally impressive first in points allowed (19.1 ppg). Quarterback Dane Evans has passed for 3,754 yards with 21 TD tosses and 13 interceptions while completing an insane 78.6 percent of his passes.

Betting Trends

  • Tiger-Cats are 7-1-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall.
  • Tiger-Cats are 6-1-2 ATS in their last 9 games following a straight up win.
  • Tiger-Cats are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss.
  • Tiger-Cats are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games in November.

2019 CFL Eastern Finals Expert Analysis and Prediction

Let me get started by saying that I’m a bit shocked that Hamilton is just a 5-point home favorite in this contest. The Tiger-Cats beat the Eskimos 30-27 on the road as a 1.5-point favorite in September before recording a far more emphatic 42-12 smackdown win at home as a 7-point favorite on October 4. Hamilton has won four straight in this rivalry and they are the better statistical team on both sides of the ball in this matchup. While the Eskimos have gone an encouraging 5-1-2 ATS in their last 8 road dates against Hamilton, Edmonton is also just 1-4-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings, 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 road games and a winless 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win.

I wouldn’t think twice about backing Hamilton in this contest. The Tigers-Cats are playing at home against an opponent they’ve handled twice this season, not to mention the fact that they’ve gone 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 playoff home games and 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 home games. Hamilton wins easily to cover the chalk and advance to the 2019 CFL Grey Cup Championship!

Winnipeg vs Saskatchewan 2019 CFL Western Finals Odds & Preview

After splitting their two regular season meetings, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Saskatchewan Roughriders will lay it all on the line in an effort to win their Western Conference finals matchup on Sunday. With the winner of this contest moving on to the annual Grey Cup Championship, let’s find out which team is offering the best value against their CFL odds.

Why Bet On Winnipeg?

Despite the fact that the Blue Bombers are underdogs and playing on the road, there are a handful of good reasons to back Winnipeg in this matchup. The Blue Bombers have won two straight including their statement-making 35-14 beatdown win over defending champion Calgary last weekend. Winnipeg also beat Saskatchewan 35-10 in September to cover the spread as a 2-point home favorite. Then, there’s the fact that the Blue Bombers also have the higher scoring offense in this affair (28.6 ppg, 2nd) and a very good defense that limits the opposition to 21.4 points per game defensively. Quarterback Matt Nichols has completed 71.2 percent of his passes while throwing for 1,936 yards with 15 touchdowns and five interceptions.

Betting Trends

  • Blue Bombers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall.
  • Blue Bombers are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. West.
  • Blue Bombers are 16-4-1 ATS in their last 21 games following a ATS win.
  • Blue Bombers are 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games following a straight up win.
  • Blue Bombers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 playoff road games.
  • Blue Bombers are 26-12 ATS in their last 38 road games.

Why Bet On Saskatchewan?

There are also a bunch of good reasons to back Saskatchewan in this matchup. First, the Roughriders have won three straight including their 23-13 win over Edmonton two weeks ago.  Saskatchewan is 6-1 SU over their last seven games and 8-2 over their last 10 games overall. The Roughriders are ranked third in scoring (27.1 ppg) and a stellar second in points allowed (21.4 ppg). Quarterback Cody Fajardo has completed 71.5 percent of his passes while throwing for 4,302 yards with 18 touchdown passes and eight interceptions. Saskatchewan also recorded a convincing 21-6 win over Winnipeg on October 5 to cash in as a 3-point home favorite.

Betting Trends

  • Roughriders are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. West.
  • Roughriders are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Division Finals games.
  • Roughriders are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 playoff home games.
  • Roughriders are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games in November.

2019 CFL Western Finals Expert Analysis and Prediction

While I’m definitely expecting Winnipeg to show up with a good effort in this contest, I really like Saskatchewan to take care of business at home in this huge matchup. I know the Blue Bombers have gone 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last four games against a team with a winning record, but Saskatchewan has gone 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win and  5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. Saskatchewan has the better quarterback in this matchup in MVP contender Cody Fajardo and the better defense as well. With these two rivals both winning at home against the other this season, I’m thinking the handwriting is on the wall for a big Roughriders win.

Edmonton Eskimos vs Montreal Alouettes

Edmonton heads into their matchup with Montreal as cold as can be. The Eskimos have gone 1-2-1 straight up in their last 4. They’re 1-7-1 SU in their last 8. Although it looks dire, Edmonton did perform okay in their last couple of matches. They lost by only 3 points to Saskatchewan as a +2.5 dog. They pushed in their game against the Rough Riders on Nov. 2.

Montreal heads into this game in much better shape than Edmonton. The Alouettes beat Ottawa 42-32 in their last. They lost to Hamilton 26-38 on Oct. 26. They did beat Calgary on Oct. 5, though.

Trends wise, this is Edmonton’s to lose. The Eskimos are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Montreal. Although Edmonton is 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 road games, Montreal is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games. The trends favoring the Eskimos aren’t as impressive as Montreal’s overall play in their last 5 games. Not only that, but Montreal has home-field advantage. Back the Alouettes.

CFL Betting Pick: Montreal Alouettes

Winnipeg Blue Bombers vs Calgary Stampeders

Winnipeg has consistently been one of the better CFL squads this season. The Blue Bombers are 11-7. They’ve fallen on hard times in their last 6 games, though. Winnipeg has gone 2-4 SU in their last 6. Although they’ve lost 4-of-6, the Blue Bombers have won 3 straight against the spread. It’s encouraging that Winnipeg beat Calgary 29-28 as a 3-point home dog in their last game.

Like Winnipeg, defending Grey Cup champ Calgary has also played well this season. In the West Division, only Saskatchewan has a better record than the Stampeders’ 13-5 mark. Calgary is 3-1 SU in their last 4. Heading into the playoffs, they look like one of the teams to beat for the Cup.

Even though Calgary looks to tough to beat for the win on Sunday, the trends point to a Winnipeg victory ATS. The Blue Bombers are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games following a straight-up win. Calgary is 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 games. They’re 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. Back the Blue Bombers to get it done.

CFL Week 21 Odds, Preview and Picks

With the final week of the 2019 Canadian Football League season on hand, it’s time to offer up one more look at the quartet of matchups that are on tap for the coming weekend. The final week of the regular season kicks off with Montreal on the road at Ottawa. The Saturday triple-header kicks off with Saskatchewan hosting Edmonton in the second half of a home-and-home series. Now, let’s find out which teams are offering the best value this weekend.

CFL Week 21 Odds, Preview and Picks

Montreal (9-8) at Ottawa (3-14)

Montreal has the better record in this matchup, but the Alouettes have alternated wins and losses over their last eight games including a humbling 38-26 home loss against Hamilton last weekend. Ottawa has lost its last 10 games and comes into their regular season finale off an embarrassing 39-9 road loss at Toronto the last time out. While the Redblacks recorded a 30-27 upset road win in overtime in their only meeting this season, Montreal is statistically better than Ottawa on both sides of the ball and they have a lot to play for as they look to hit the playoffs on a positive note. Ottawa is 1-8 ATS in their last nine games and 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games while Montreal has gone 12-4 ATS in their last 16 road games. The Alouettes win big to cover the chalk!

Pick: Montreal 35 Ottawa 23

Edmonton (8-9) at Saskatchewan (12-5)

Edmonton has lost six of their last eight games and comes into this contest off a narrow 37-24 home loss against Saskatchewan last weekend as a 2.5-point home underdog. Conversely, the Roughriders have won two straight and five of their last six games while limiting the opposition to 25 points or less in each victory. The Eskimos have gone an uninspiring 1-7 ATS in their last eight games and 0-8 ATS in their last eight games against a team with a winning record. On the flip side of the coin, Saskatchewan has gone a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win and 6-0 ATS in their last six games against a team with a losing record. The Roughriders win and cover with room to spare!

Pick: Saskatchewan 42 Edmonton 24

Toronto (4-13) at Hamilton (14-3)

Toronto has won two of three and comes into this contest off a 39-9 blowout win over Ottawa last weekend as a 7-point home favorite. However, over their last seven games, the Argonauts are just 3-4. Red-hot Hamilton has won five straight and nine of their last 10 games overall including a 38-26 win over Edmonton last weekend. Hamilton has also won two straight in this rivalry including a 38-27 home win as an 11-point favorite in September. With Toronto going 2-7-2 ATS in their last 11 games against a team with a winning record and Hamilton going a near-perfect 6–0-2 ATS in their last eight games following an SU win, I believe the handwriting is on the wall for a huge win and cover for the Tiger-cats.

Pick: Hamilton 38 Toronto 23

Calgary (11-6) at BC (5-12)

Calgary had their two-game winning streak snapped in their narrow 29-28 road loss against Winnipeg one game after beating the Blue Bombers 37-33 at home. The Stampeders have won six of their last eight games overall. BC has dropped two straight after winning their previous four games and comes into this contest off a 27-19 home loss against Saskatchewan last weekend.

While the Lions are playing at home in this matchup, I’m stunned that Calgary isn’t a bigger favorite. I know the Stampeders are an uninspiring 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up loss and 0-5-1 ATS in their last six games overall, but BC has gone a just 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record and a nearly winless 1-10-1 ATS in their last 12 games in November. The Stampeders have a ton to play for as they get set for the playoffs and that makes them the easy pick to win and cover the spread.

Calgary Stampeders vs Winnipeg Blue Bombers

Last season’s Grey Cup winners, Calgary, are tied atop the West Division with the Saskatchewan Rough Riders. The Stampeders are 11-5. They will look to beat and cover against 10-7 Winnipeg on Friday night.

These two battled on Oct. 19. Calgary took that game 37-33. It’s hard to see the Stampeders falling behind in this one. They’ve been on a roll, winning 6 of their last 7 SU while the spread isn’t all that daunting.

CFL Betting Pick: Calgary Stampeders

Saturday, Oct. 26

Hamilton Tiger-Cats vs Montreal Alouettes

Why is the spread so low on the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to beat the Montreal Alouettes? Simple. The Alouettes are one of the few teams to have beaten the Tiger-Cats this season. Montreal shocked Hamilton 36-29 on July 4th.

Since then, Hamilton has gone 10-2 SU. Montreal is only 4-4 ATS at home. They’re 9-7 overall. Although the Alouettes have proven they can beat the Tiger-Cats straight up, they shouldn’t come close to doing that on Saturday. July 4 was a long time ago.

CFL Betting Pick: Hamilton Tiger-Cats

Ottawa Redblacks vs Toronto Argonauts

Both these teams are 3-13 on the season, which means we should probably take the points, right? After all, when 2 awful teams meet, the team getting points, especially 5, can mean a ton. However, the Argonauts have beaten the Redblacks twice this season and it hasn’t even been all that close. They pummeled Ottawa 46-17 on Sep. 7. Then, on Oct. 11 they beat Ottawa 28-21 on the road. The Argos get the nod.

CFL Betting Pick: Toronto Argonauts

Saskatchewan Rough Riders vs Edmonton Eskimos

Edmonton’s getting way more love than they probably should in this matchup. The Eskimos have won 2-of-3, but Saskatchewan has been on a huge roll. The Rough Riders are 4-1 SU in their last 5. The only loss happened on the road against Calgary and Sasktachewan covered in that matchup, meaning they’re 4-0 SU in their last 4.

Ottawa Redblacks (3-12) at Hamilton Tigercats (12-3)

  • When: Saturday, October 19, 2019 at 4:00 PM ET
  • Where: Tim Horton Field, Hamilton, ON
  • CFL Week 19 Odds: Hamilton -17.5 / Total: 51
  • Live StreamCFL.ca 

The Ottawa RedBlacks have lost eight straight games including a 28-21 road loss to Toronto last weekend. The RedBlacks are averaging just 17.3 points per game while allowing a whopping 30.0 points per contest defensively. Ottawa has gone a dismal 1-6 ATS over their last seven games.

Hamilton has won three straight and six of their last seven games including an emphatic 42-12 smackdown of Edmonton last weekend. The Tiger-Cats rank first in scoring (30.6 ppg) and an equally impressive first in points allowed (19.2 ppg). Hamilton has won two straight in this series including a 21-7 win in Ottawa in August.

The Tiger-Cats are 4-0-2 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up win, 5-0-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 home games. Despite those concrete ATS trends, the RedBlacks are a perfect 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road dates against Hamilton and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall. Nevertheless, I’m going with red-hot Hamilton to get the big win to keep their momentum going as they get set for the quickly approaching playoffs.

Pick: Hamilton 35 Ottawa 17

Winnipeg Blue Bombers (10-6) at Calgary Stampeders (10-5)

  • When: Saturday, October 19, 2019 at 7:00 PM ET
  • Where: McMahon Stadium, Calgary, AB
  • CFL Week 19 Odds: Calgary -7 / Total: 50.5
  • Live StreamCFL.ca 

Winnipeg managed to snap a three-game losing streak by beating Montreal 35-24 last weekend. The Blue Bombers are ranked a stellar second in scoring (27.9 ppg) and an identical second in points allowed (21.5 ppg). Calgary has won five of six and bounced back from a loss in their previous game to take down Saskatchewan 30-28 last weekend despite failing to cover the chalk as a 3.5-point home favorite.

Winnipeg picked up a hard-fought 26-24 win at home on August 8, but these two rivals have alternated SU wins and losses over their last six meetings. While the Blue Bombers are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight up win and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in October. Calgary has gone 5-1 ATS in their last 6 against their Western Conference counterparts and I believe the Stampeders are going to take care of business at home in this Week 19 matchup, although I’m going with Winnipeg to cover the spread in another thriller between these two.

Pick: Calgary 27 Winnipeg 24

Friday, Oct. 4

Edmonton Eskimos vs Hamilton Tiger-Cats

Since August 23, the Eskimos have been in a world of hurt. Edmonton is 0-5 SU and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games. The Eskimos last battled Hamilton on Sep. 20. They actually played the Tiger-Cats extremely tough. However, that matchup took place in Edmonton while this one happens at Hamilton. The Tiger-Cats are 4-1 ATS at home. They should make it 5-1 on Friday night.

CFL Betting Pick: Hamilton Tiger-Cats -7

Saturday, Oct. 5

Calgary Stampeders vs Montreal Alouettes

Montreal has been a tough out this season. The Alouettes are 8-5 ATS overall and 3-3 ATS at home. The last time they battled Calgary, back on August 17, they beat the Stampeders 40-34. Calgary is 2-1-1 ATS in their last 4 while Montreal is 3-0 ATS in their last 3. The Alouettes are the play since they’re at home and have already proven they can beat the defending champs.

CFL Betting Pick: Montreal Alouettes +3

Winnipeg Blue Bombers vs Saskatchewan Rough Riders

This is a key matchup because Winnipeg sits at 9-5 while Saskatchewan is at 9-7. The Blue Bombers have hit a rough patch. They’re 1-3 SU in their last 4 while going 2-2 ATS. What’s really worrisome if you’re a Winnipeg fan is how the Blue Bombers only scored 13 points versus Hamilton in their last.

Saskatchewan beat Winnipeg 19-17 on Sep. 1. Winnipeg bounced back with a 35-10 victory on Sep. 7. Take the points on the Blue Bombers to get back on track with a good, cover, performance on Saturday.

CFL Betting Pick: Winnipeg Blue Bombers

Toronto Argonauts vs BC Lions

In the bottom feeder game for Week 17 in the Canadian Football League, the BC Lions host the Toronto Argonauts. The Argos are 2-11 straight up. However, they’re a more respectable 5-6 against the spread. BC is only 1-4 ATS at home. So, believe it or not, the Argos get the nod to cover in this matchup.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats vs Winnipeg Blue Bombers

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats head into their game against Winnipeg having won 5-of-6 straight up. The Tiger-Cats have gone 3-1-2 against the spread in those 6 games. The last time they battled Winnipeg, they beat the Blue Bombers 23-15 as a +2 home dog.

The Blue Bombers are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games. They’ve gone 4-2 ATS in those 6 matchups. Winnipeg is 8-1 ATS in their last 9 home games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 Friday games. This matchup is too close to call, which means trends could mean a lot on Friday night. Go with the Blue Bombers.

CFL Betting Pick: Winnipeg Blue Bombers

Saturday, Sep. 28

Edmonton Eskimos vs Ottawa RedBlacks

  • 2019 CFL Week 16 Odds: TBA

There’s no line yet in this contest because Ottawa has been so awful this season. The RedBlacks are 3-10 SU and 4-9 ATS. They’re a close to unbelievable 1-6 ATS at home. Ottawa hasn’t covered the spread since August 9. That’s five straight weeks of non-covers.

Edmonton is only 2-4 ATS on the road, though. The Eskimos have gone 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games. That includes a cover loss to the RedBlacks on August 9. Once the line is set, consider backing Ottawa. Edmonton hasn’t played much better than the RedBlacks in recent games.

CFL Betting Pick: Ottawa RedBlacks

Saskatchewan Rough Riders vs Toronto Argonauts

Toronto is 1-4 straight up in their last 5. Against the spread, they’ve been much better, going 2-0-2. Saskatchewan dominated the Argonauts 32-7 in the last matchup. Then again, the Rough Riders have gone 0-3 ATS in their last 3 games. They’re only 3-2 ATS on the road. Take the points.

CFL Betting Pick: Toronto Argonauts

Montreal Alouettes vs BC Lions

This line opened at -2 and then quickly jumped to -6 ½ in favor of the BC Lions. Why? Montreal quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. is eligible to play on Oct. 5. Without their quarterback, the Alouettes should find it difficult to keep this one closer than the spread. Lions get the nod.

CFL Betting Pick: BC Lions

Calgary Stampeders vs Toronto Argonauts

Last season Grey Cup winner Calgary is only a game behind Winnipeg in the East. They battle the worst team in the Canadian Football League on Friday. The Toronto Argonauts are 2-9 SU. But, Toronto is also 5-5 ATS.

Calgary should win. The Argos might keep it close. The Stampeders are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Friday games. They’re 1-5 ATS versus a team with a losing record. The line isn’t all that daunting, though, while the Stampeders dominate Toronto, going 6-1 ATS in the last 7 head-to-head away games.

CFL Betting Pick: Calgary Stampeders

Hamilton Tiger-Cats vs Edmonton Eskimos

  • 2019 CFL Week 15 Odds: TBA

Oddsmakers are hesitant to set a line on this game because Edmonton starting quarterback Trevor Harris might not play. Although no line has been set, we can still handicap the game.

Hamilton not only leads the West Division, but they’ve only lost 3 matchups against the spread. Not only that, but the Tiger-Cats are 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Edmonton. Hamilton averages 29.5 points per while only allowing 19.7 points per. That’s almost a 10 point difference. The Tiger-Cats should cover no matter the line.

CFL Betting Pick: Hamilton Tiger-Cats

Saturday, Sep 21

Winnipeg Blue Bombers vs Montreal Alouettes

Winnipeg ranks first in both points scored and points allowed per matchup. The Blue Bombers average 29.6 points while they only allow 19 points per. They’ve gone 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games. They’ve gone 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a straight up win. They’re 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 games following an ATS win.

The line gives Montreal a chance. They’ve got one, but the trends are too hot to ignore. The Alouettes shouldn’t keep up with Winnipeg on Saturday.

CFL Betting Pick: Winnipeg Blue Bombers

BC Lions vs Ottawa RedBlacks

The Lions are 2-10 SU and 4-7 ATS. Ottawa has no real advantage over the Lions, though. The RedBlacks are 3-9 SU and 4-8 ATS. Ottawa is on a 5-game losing streak, a 4-game losing streak against the spread, and just dropped a game 5-29 to the Lions on Sep. 13. British Columbia rolls to another victory over last year’s Grey Cup participants.

Ottawa (3-8) at BC (1-10)

  • When: Friday, September 13, 2019 at 7:00 PM
  • Where: BC Place, Vancouver, BC
  • CFL Week 14 Odds: BC -5.5 / Total: 50

Ottawa has lost four straight and eight of nine including their embarrassing 46-17 blowout loss against Toronto last weekend while never coming close to covering the chalk as a 5.5-point home favorite. The RedBlacks are averaging a pitiful 19.1 points per game while allowing 30.2 points per contest defensively. BC has lost seven straight and nine of their last 10 games including a 21-16 loss against Montreal last weekend, although the Lions managed to cover the chalk as a 6.5-point road dog.

Betting Trends

  • OTT are 2-8 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.
  • Under is 7-2 in OTT last 9 games in September.
  • OTT are 28-12 ATS in their last 40 road games.
  • BC are 3-13 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.
  • BC are 3-10-1 ATS in their last 14 games overall.

Prediction

BC might look like they’re the worst team in this matchup, but the Lions have shown some signs of life recently by keeping up with Hamilton and Montreal before falling in each of their last two games. BC has gone 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Friday games and 4-1 ATS in their last five games in the month of September. With the Lions playing at home and facing an Ottawa team that has gone 3-7 ATS in their last 10, I feel like BC is the pick to win and narrowly cover the chalk in this Week 14 pairing.

Pick: BC -5.5

Hamilton (9-2) at Calgary (7-4)

Hamilton has won four straight and six of their last seven including a 38-27 win over Toronto two weeks ago that saw quarterback Dane Evans pass for 442 yards with two TDs and two interceptions while adding 42 rushing yards and another score. The defending Grey Cup champs have a lot to play for as they sit two games in back of Winnipeg for first place in the CFL West.

Calgary has won two straight and five of their last seven including a 33-17 win over Edmonton last weekend that saw quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell throw for 254 yards and two touchdowns, though he also tossed three costly interceptions in the loss while the Stampeders were held to just 29 rushing yards in the win.

Betting Trends

  • Tiger-Cats are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss.
  • Tiger-Cats are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games.
  • Tiger-Cats are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following a bye week.
  • Tiger-Cats are 2-6-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
  • Stampeders are 4-0 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
  • Stampeders are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in September.
  • Stampeders are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
  • Stampeders are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games in Week 14.
  • Stampeders are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up win.

Prediction

Calgary might be playing at home in this contest and they might be favored, but for me, Hamilton has been the better and more consistent team all season, which is why I’m backing the defending champs to get it done in this matchup despite being on the road. Hamilton beat Calgary 30-23 at home earlier this season and I believe they’re going to get the regular season sweep this time around!

Pick: Hamilton +5.5 Points

Montreal (6-4) at Saskatchewan (7-4)

Montreal has won three straight and six of their last eight including a narrow 21-16 win over BC last weekend that saw quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. pass for 232 yards with one touchdown and one interception while adding two rushing scores in the win. Saskatchewan had their six-game winning streak snapped in their humbling 35-10 loss to Winnipeg last weekend as quarterback Cody Fajardo was limited to 196 passing yards with no touchdowns and one interception.

Betting Trends

  • Alouettes are 9-2 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
  • Alouettes are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 road games.
  • Alouettes are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 Saturday games.
  • Alouettes are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
  • Alouettes are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games in September.
  • Roughriders are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss.
  • Roughriders are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games.
  • Roughriders are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
  • Roughriders are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games in September.

Prediction

Saskatchewan might have suffered an embarrassing loss in their last contest, but I like the Roughriders to get back in the win column in this contest as they are both, playing at home and looking to improve their postseason hopes. Despite their improved recent play, Saskatchewan holds the slight statistical edge on both sides of the ball, plus the Roughriders are going to be seriously motivated to get back on track in this contest. Saskatchewan beat Montreal 17-10 on the road early this season and I believe they’ll duplicate that feat by winning and covering the chalk as a 6-point fave in this one!

Pick: Saskatchewan -6

BC Lions (1-9) at Montreal Alouettes (5-4)

  • When: Friday, September 6, 2019 at 6:30 PM
  • Where: Molson Stadium, Montreal, Quebec
  • CFL Week 13 Odds: Montreal -7 / Total: 51.5

BC has lost six straight games including their 13-10 loss to Hamilton the last time out. The Lions have gone a pitiful 1-4-1 ATS during the span while getting held to 18 points or less four times. Montreal has won two straight and five of seven including a 28-22 win over Toronto in their last contest. The Alouettes have gone 4-3 ATS during the span while scoring 28 points or more four times.

Key Trends

  • Lions are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games.
  • Lions are 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a ATS loss.
  • Lions are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games.
  • Lions are 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 games following a straight up loss.
  • Lions are 1-5-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
  • Lions are 2-10-1 ATS in their last 13 games overall.
  • Alouettes are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games in Week 13.
  • Alouettes are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games.
  • Alouettes are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall.
  • Alouettes are 4-11 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.
  • Alouettes are 5-14 ATS in their last 19 games following a ATS loss.
  • Alouettes are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Friday games.
  • Alouettes are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games in September.

Prediction

The BC Lions are 4-0 ATS in their last four road dates against Montreal and a blistering 30-9 ATS in their last 39 meetings against the Alouettes overall. Still, none of that will matter right now, seeing as how the Lions are a complete and utter mess and playing on the road. Montreal averages 5.3 points per game more than BC while allowing 6.1 fewer points per game defensively. The Alouettes will win and cover in Week 13!

Pick: Montreal -5.5

Toronto Argonauts (1-9) at Ottawa Redblacks (3-7)

  • When: Saturday, September 7, 2019 at 12:00 PM
  • Where: TD Place Stadium, Ottawa Ontario
  • CFL Week 13 Odds: Ottawa -5.5 / Total: 51.5

Toronto has lost three straight including a 38-27 road loss to Hamilton last weekend as an 11-point underdog. Unfortunately, the Argonauts have allowed 38 points or more in two of their last three games. Ottawa has also dropped three straight including a 40-18 blowout loss against Saskatchewan the last time out while failing to cover the chalk as a 8.5-point road underdog.

Key Trends

  • Argonauts are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss.
  • Argonauts are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss.
  • Argonauts are 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 games overall.
  • Argonauts are 2-5 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.
  • Argonauts are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games in September.
  • Argonauts are 7-21-1 ATS in their last 29 road games.
  • Argonauts are 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 vs. East.
  • RedBlacks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. East.
  • RedBlacks are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a bye week.
  • RedBlacks are 2-7 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.
  • RedBlacks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss.
  • RedBlacks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games.

Prediction

While Toronto has won just once this season, I’m going with the Argonauts to get the upset road win in this Week 13 matchup mostly because the Redblacks are struggling mightily to score right now. Ottawa has been limited to 18 points or less in each of their last three games while getting held to 12 points or less in two of those contests. Toronto has scored 22 or more in each of their last four games and their superior offense will be the main reason they win and cover as a slight road dog.

Pick: Toronto +5.5</p.

Saskatchewan Roughriders (7-3) at Winnipeg Blue Bombers (8-3)

  • When: Saturday, September 7, 2019 at 3:00 PM
  • Where: IG Field, Winnipeg, Manitoba
  • CFL Week 13 Odds: Winnipeg -1.5 / Total: 48

Saskatchewan has won six straight including their hard-fought 19-17 home win over Winnipeg the last time out. The Roughriders have gone 5-1 ATS over their last six despite failing to cover the chalk as a 5-point favorite the last time out. Winnipeg will be looking to bounce back from their narrow loss against Saskatchewan the last time out. The Blue Bombers had their three-game winning streak snapped but they’ve managed to score 26 points or more three times over their last four while topping the 30-point plateau twice.

Key Trends

  • Roughriders are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games.
  • Roughriders are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
  • Roughriders are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss.
  • Roughriders are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win.
  • Roughriders are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games.
  • Roughriders are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 vs. West.
  • Roughriders are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games in September.
  • Blue Bombers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. West.
  • Blue Bombers are 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 games following a ATS win.
  • Blue Bombers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games in September.
  • Blue Bombers are 14-5 ATS in their last 19 games overall.
  • Blue Bombers are 21-8 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
  • Blue Bombers are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 Saturday games.
  • Blue Bombers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up loss.

Prediction

Winnipeg has the statistical scoring advantage on both aides of the ball and they’re playing at home on the back end of this home-and-home series. The Blue Bombers are a near-perfect 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and a bankroll-boosting 14-5 ATS in their last 19 games overall. Revenge will be the name of this game as the Blue Bombers win and cover the chalk as a small home favorite.

Pick: Winnipeg -1.5

Calgary Stampeders (6-4) at Edmonton Eskimos (6-5)

  • When: Saturday, September 7, 2019 at 6:00 PM
  • Where: Commonwealth Stadium, Edmonton, Alberta
  • CFL Week 13 Odds: PK / Total: 48

Calgary snapped a two-game skid by beating Edmonton 25-9 last weekend while covering the spread as a 3.5-point home favorite. The Stampeders are 4-2 over their last six and have scored 24 or more in five of those contests while holding the opposition to 18 points or less four times. Edmonton has dropped two straight including the aforementioned 25-9 loss to Calgary last weekend. The Eskimos are 2-2 over their last four games, but just 1-3 ATS during the span. The Eskimos have allowed 25 points or more in each of their last three games and four times in their last five games overall.

Key Trends

  • Stampeders are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. West.
  • Stampeders are 6-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
  • Stampeders are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games in September.
  • Stampeders are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win.
  • Eskimos are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in Week 13.
  • Eskimos are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games in September.
  • Eskimos are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
  • Eskimos are 0-4 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.

Prediction

With the Eskimos back at home and looking to extract some revenge for their loss against the Stampeders last weekend, I like Edmonton to get the narrow win and ATS cover as a Pick ‘em. The Eskimos are 4-1 at home this season while Calgary has gone a modest 2-2 on the road. The Eskimos are a near-perfect 5-1 ATS in their last six home dates against the Stampeders!

Pick: Edmonton as a Pick ‘Em

CFL Week 12 Odds, Preview and Picks

With the 2019 CFL season moving further into the second half of what has been a thrilling and mostly parity-laden season, it’s time to look at the trio of Week 12 matchups that are on tap for the coming week. Now, let’s find out who’s in action and which CFL Grey Cup hopefuls are offering the best betting value in their respective matchups.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers (8-2) at Saskatchewan Roughriders (6-3)

Winnipeg has won four straight including a 34-28 win over Edmonton last week as Chris Streveler threw for only 89 yards but rushed14 times for 95 yards and a score. The Blue Bombers are averaging a league-high 25.8 points per game.

Saskatchewan has won five straight including an emphatic 40-18 blowout of Ottawa last week as quarterback Cody Fajardo passed for 241 yards with one touchdown and another rushing score while running back William Powell rushed 11 times for 70 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Key Trends

  • Blue Bombers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games in Week 12.
  • Roughriders are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win.
  • Under is 10-2 in Blue Bombers last 12 games in Week 12.
  • Over is 5-0 in Roughriders last 5 games in September.

Prediction

Winnipeg might have the better record in this affair, but Saskatchewan is playing really well right now, which makes them my pick to win outright on their home field. However, I’m going with the Blue Bombers to cover the chalk in a flat-out thriller simply because I believe the spread in this contest should be closer to a field goal than the 5.5 points it currently is.

Pick: Saskatchewan 27 Edmonton 24

Toronto Argonauts (1-8) at Hamilton Tigercats (8-2)

  • When: Monday, Sept. 2, 2019 at 12:00 PM CDT
  • Where: Tim Hortons Field, Hamilton
  • CFL Week 12 Odds: Hamilton -11.5
  • Live Stream: CFL.ca

Toronto has dropped two straight including a 28-22 loss to Montreal last week despite getting 464 yards and two touchdown passes from quarterback Mcleod Bethel-Thompson.

Hamilton has won three straight including a hard-fought 13-10 win over BC last weekend despite the fact that quarterback Dane Evans was limited to 194 yards and two interceptions.

Key Trends

  • Argonauts are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 Monday games.
  • Tiger-Cats are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Monday games.
  • Over is 5-0-1 in Argonauts last 6 games in Week 12.
  • Under is 4-0 in Tiger-Cats last 4 games following a straight up win.

Prediction

There is no way that Hamilton manages to lose to one-win Toronto. Not only that, but the Tigercats are the picks to win this one in a rout against an Argonauts team that is ranked last in the CFL in scoring (15.3 ppg).

Pick: Hamilton 40 Toronto 27

Edmonton Eskimos (6-4) at Calgary Stampeders (5-4)

  • When: Monday, Sept. 2, 2019 at 3:30 PM CDT
  • Where: McMahon Stadium, Calgary
  • CFL Week 12 Odds: Calgary -3.5
  • Live Stream: CFL.ca

Edmonton had their four-game winning streak snapped in their 34-28 Week 11 loss to Winnipeg. The Eskimos did not score a touchdown until late in the fourth quarter on a DaVaris Daniels 75-yard touchdown reception. Edmonton kicked seven field goals in the loss as drives stalled seven times between the 20 and 37-yard lines.

Calgary has dropped two straight including their 40-34 Week 11 overtime loss against Montreal despite the fact that Nick Arbuckle threw for 370 yards and four touchdowns in the loss while Reginald Begelton caught eight passes for 173 yards and four touchdowns.

Key Trends

  • Edmonton is 2-6 ATS in its last 8 on the road
  • The UNDER has cashed in 8 of the Eskimos last 11 on the road
  • Calgary is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 at home
  • The UNDER has cashed in 5 of the Stampeders last 7

Prediction

I like Calgary here to get the win at home and narrow ATS cover against an Edmonton team that has gone an uninspiring 2-3 on the road this season. The Stampeders are 3-2 on their home field and are the pick to narrowly cover the chalk simply because they are playing at home against a team they match up quite well against.

Pick: Calgary 27 Edmonton 23

Winnipeg Blue Bombers vs Edmonton Eskimos

Winnipeg quarterback Matt Nichols is out until October, which is why the odds on this game fell from Edmonton -2 ½ to Edmonton -6 ½. Without Nichols, the Blue Bombers might find it difficult to move the football as effectively.

However, Winnipeg beat Edmonton 28-21 earlier in the season. So, if we back the Eskimos, we’re hoping for a 12 ½ point turnaround from the previous game. Not only that, but the trends favor Winnipeg. The Eskimos are 1-12 ATS in their last 13 Week 11 games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win. Winnipeg all the way.

CFL Betting Pick: Winnipeg Blue Bombers

Saturday, August 24

Ottawa Redblacks vs Saskatchewan Rough Riders

Ottawa continues to struggle. After back-to-back victories to start the season, the Redblacks have gone 1-6 SU in their last 7 games. Although that’s a terrible straight up record, Ottawa is a really good 3-1 ATS in their last 4 games.

Saskatchewan is 6-2 ATS this season, though. The Rough Riders are on a 4-0 ATS streak. Trends tell us that the Rough Riders cover. But, the points are too many to swallow. Take the points in anticipation that Sakstachewan’s ATS streak ends.

CFL Betting Pick: Ottawa Redblacks

Hamilton Tiger-Cats vs B.C. Lions

7-2 Hamilton leads the East Division. Hamilton is also 6-3 ATS. The Tiger-Cats should probably beat the Lions by at least 5 points on Saturday. The reason to question if they will is because in the last head-to-head, B.C. won ATS when losing 34-35.

Hamilton is only 1-2 ATS in their last 3. They’re 6-15 ATS in their last 21 Saturday games. Take the points.

CFL Betting Pick: B.C. Lions

Sunday, August 25

Montreal Alouettes vs Toronto Argonauts

Toronto is so bad that Montreal is favored by 6 as the road team. The Argonauts have a single moneyline victory this season. They’ve gone 3-5 ATS. Montreal is 3-1 ATS on the road.

The Alouettes are also 10-2 ATS in their last 12 road games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 versus the East. Montreal figures to cover here.

CFL Betting Pick: Montreal Alouettes
