    CFL Betting Recap - Week 2

    League Betting Notes

    -- Favorites/underdogs went 2-2 SU in Week 2
    -- Underdogs went 4-0 ATS in Week 2
    -- Home/road teams posted a 2-2 SU record in Week 2
    -- Road teams posted a 4-0 ATS record in Week 2
    -- The 'Over/under' went 2-2 in Week 2

    Analysis

    If you're scoring at home, so far it's been a day for the 'dogs in Canadian Football League action. Underdogs were also a perfect 4-0 ATS in Week 1, bringing the total so far this season 0-8 ATS so far for the favorites. Road teams have hit at a 6-2 ATS clip so far, a trend we saw often during the early going during the 2016 season. In fact, road teams started out 16-2-2 ATS through the first five weeks last season, and 29-9-2 ATS through the first 10 weeks until home teams finally covered in a majority of the games. That didn't occur until a five-week slate in Week 11 when home teams finally posted a 4-1 ATS mark.

    As far as the total is concerned, the 'under has edged out the 'over' 5-3 through two weeks. Last season in Week 1 we saw a 2-2 split, followed by six consecutive weeks with the under dominating at 3-1, or 2-1-1 in Week 3. The under was 19-8-1 through the first seven weeks until a 2-2 split in Week 8, followed by the first over majority in Week 9 when the offenses finally started to take control.

    Might we see a similar trend in Week 3 and beyond? We'll see. So far only the two Grey Cup participants from last season, Calgary (1-0-1) and Ottawa (0-1-1) look to be the dominant offenses again, while perhaps Winnipeg (1-0) and maybe BC Lions (1-1) look to have any semblance of consistency in the early going.

    Team Betting Notes

    -- The two Grey Cup combatants from last season played a second consecutive game, this time on the plains of Southern Alberta. It didn't end in a tie like last week's opener in Canada's capital city. However, it was a familiar result for the RedBlacks, who fell 43-39 in Calgary. Ottawa fell to 0-1-1 SU, although they're an impressive 2-0 ATS on the season. And really, they won the matchup that mattered in the Grey Cup last season.

    -- The Stampeders are 3-0-2 SU in the past five regular season meetings with the RedBlacks. One thing that is certain, there will be a lot of points when the teams clash. The over is 6-0-1 in the past seven meetings, and 7-1-1 in nine all-time battles.

    -- Toronto (1-1) is on deck for Ottawa, as they search for their first victory in a return home in Week 3. The Argos won as 3 1/2-point 'dogs in Week 1 against Hamilton (0-1), but it was BC coming in and spoiling the party by a 28-15 count with the Argos favored by two points at Rogers Centre on Friday. The 'under' has cashed in each of Toronto's games so far, but that will be put to the test in Week 3 against the high-scoring RedBlacks.

    -- Winnipeg (1-0) kicked off its season after a bye in Week 1, and they won a thriller in Saskatchewan (0-2) by a 43-40 count in overtime. The Bombers fell behind 10-0 after the opening quarter, and a late flurry by the Riders forced OT. But Winnipeg capped it off in the extra session, and they might be an offense to monitor.

    -- For the Roughriders, they're 0-2 SU, but they have lost by a total of four points through two games. They look much improved and they're averaging 28.0 PPG despite the two setbacks. Next up they will face a second straight opponent coming off a bye as the TiCats visit Regina.

    -- As mentioned, the Lions went to Toronto and won. That erased a sour taste in their mouth following a 30-27 setback in the opener against the Eskimos. BC's defense was much better, allowing just 15 points to the Argos, and the 'under' has now hit in each of their two outings. They'll travel to Montreal (1-1) in Week 3, facing an Alouettes team which has also had the 'under' hit in their two contests.

    -- The Eskimos are averaging 26.5 points per game so far, but it's their defense which has been the story in their two victories. The Esks are holding opponents to 23.0 points per game, including just 19 against the Alouettes. The 'under' has hit in each of their two outings.

    Thursday's CFL betting preview and odds: Lions at Alouettes
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    BC has won back-to-back meetings in Quebec, including a 38-18 triumph last season, while averaging 33.6 points during its three-game winning streak against Montreal.

    B.C. Lions at Montreal Alouettes (+2.5, 50)

    The BC Lions look to continue their recent dominance of East Division opponents when they stay on the road to face the Montreal Alouettes on Thursday. The Lions scored the final 18 points en route to a 28-15 victory over the Toronto Argonauts in Week 2 to improve to 8-1 in their last nine games against East Division foes, and hope to stay on the winning track by beating the Alouettes for the fourth consecutive time.

    BC has won back-to-back meetings in Quebec, including a 38-18 triumph last season, while averaging 33.6 points during its three-game winning streak against Montreal. The Alouettes let one slip away in the 23-19 defeat to the Edmonton Eskimos last week. Montreal failed to punch the ball into the end zone on multiple trips to the red zone, including a first-and-goal from the Edmonton 1-yard line in the third quarter, and hopes its sputtering offence, which is averaging 18 points, can find its top gear, as the Alouettes search for their first victory against BC since Aug. 20, 2015. "We have to be better as an offence," Montreal running back Tyrell Sutton told reporters. "We have to stop shooting ourselves in the foot and score points."

    TV:
    7:30 p.m. ET, TSN, ESPNews

    LINE HISTORY:
    The Lions opened as three-point road favorites and that number was bet down slightly to 2.5. The total hit the bettings boards at 48.5 and was bumped up to 50.

    ABOUT THE LIONS (1-1 SU, 1-1 ATS, 0-2 O/U):
    Jeremiah Johnson continued his strong start to the season as the league leader in rushing yards (162) and touchdowns (two) gained 70 yards on the ground to go along with his game-clinching score against Toronto. Jonathon Jennings threw for 301 yards and a touchdown, with Bryan Burnham the main beneficiary of Jennings' big night as he caught nine passes for 118 yards despite playing with a sore leg. Rookie Ty Long made 3-of-3 field goal attempts, but struggled with his punting while deputizing for an injured Swayze Waters, who should be ready to go in Montreal after suffering a thigh injury in training camp.

    ABOUT THE ALOUETTES (1-1 SU, 1-1 ATS, 0-2 O/U):
    Free agent signing Ryan Phillips, a defensive back who spent the previous 12 seasons with the Lions, left the game in the second quarter with an undisclosed injury and his status is unknown for Thursday. Darian Durant went 14-of-24 for 166 yards and a touchdown, but threw a costly interception in the fourth quarter, which led to Edmonton's go-ahead score. Veteran wide receiver Nik Lewis continues to perform at a high level as he caught five passes for 42 yards to move past Hall of Famer Ray Elgaard (13,198) into seventh place on the league's all-time receiving yards list.

    BETTING TRENDS:

    * Lions are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite of 0.5-3.0.
    * Alouettes are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games as a home underdog of 0.5-3.0.
    * Under is 6-1 in Lions last 7 games in Week 3.
    * Under is 10-2 in Alouettes last 12 Thursday games.
    * Lions are 26-9 ATS in their last 35 meetings.

    CONSENSUS:
    The road chalk Lions are getting 65 percent of the action from users and the Under is picking up 53 percent of the totals wagers.

    EXTRA POINTS:

    * BC leads the CFL in rushing yards (227) and rushing touchdowns (three).
    * Durant is averaging 199.5 passing yards per game, which is the lowest among CFL starting quarterbacks.
    * Montreal has dropped seven of its last nine games against West Division opponents.

    Friday's CFL betting preview and odds: Stampeders at Blue Bombers
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Matt Nichols threw for 331 yards and four touchdowns in his first game since extending his contract in the offseason and Weston Dressler caught six passes for 124 yards and two scores en route to earning one of the CFL Top Performer of the Week honours.

    Calgary Stampeders at Winnipeg Blue Bombers (+3.5, 58.5)

    The Calgary Stampeders look to stay unbeaten when they hit the road to face the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Friday. The Stampeders tied the Ottawa Redblacks 31-31 in a rematch of the 2016 Grey Cup in Week 1 before pulling out a 43-39 victory in the second game of a home-and-home set with the Redblacks, and hope to continue their mastery of the Blue Bombers by notching their seventh consecutive win in the series.

    Calgary has won eight straight games in Winnipeg, including a 33-18 victory at Investors Group Field last season, while putting up 32 or more points in five of its last six visits. The Blue Bombers, who had a Week 1 bye, opened up the season with a thrilling 43-40 overtime victory against the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Canada Day. Justin Medlock kicked a 28-yard field goal in the second overtime to spoil the party in Regina, and Winnipeg turns its attention to ending a lengthy run of futility against the Stampeders. The Blue Bombers haven't beaten Calgary at home since a 42-20 victory July 10, 2009 and hope to prove they're legitimate West Division title contenders and exorcise some past demons in the process.

    TV:
    8:30 p.m. ET, TSN, RDS

    LINE HISTORY:
    The Stampeders opened as 3.5-point road chalk and that number was briefly bet down to three before returning to the opening number. The total hit the betting board at 56 and has been bumped up all the way to 59.

    ABOUT THE STAMPEDERS (1-0-1 SU, 0-2 ATS, 2-0 O/U):
    Wide receiver DaVaris Daniels, who was named the CFL's Most Outstanding Rookie in 2016, is expected to be back in the lineup after missing last week's game against Ottawa with a shoulder injury. Micah Johnson and Charleston Hughes, who have combined for four sacks in two games this season, sat out practice earlier in the week but Calgary coach Dave Dickenson expects both defensive ends to play Friday. Veteran kicker Rene Paredes continues to struggle as he missed three extra points last week after sending a potential game-winning 37-yard field goal wide of the mark in the opener.

    ABOUT THE BLUE BOMBERS (1-0 SU, 1-0 ATS, 1-0 O/U):
    Matt Nichols threw for 331 yards and four touchdowns in his first game since extending his contract in the offseason and Weston Dressler caught six passes for 124 yards and two scores en route to earning one of the CFL Top Performer of the Week honours. Medlock made 5-of-5 field goals, including two in overtime, after setting a CFL record for most field goals in a season with 60 in 2016. Defensive back/kick returner Kevin Fogg was forced to leave the game in the first half with a lower-body injury and his status for Friday is unknown while offensive tackle Jermarcus Hardrick suffered a knock in the third quarter, but is expected to suit up against the Stampeders.

    TRENDS:

    * Stampeders are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite.

    * Blue Bombers are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog.

    * Over is 4-0 in Stampeders last 4 games as a favorite of 3.5-10.0.

    * Over is 7-1 in Blue Bombers last 8 games overall.

    * Over is 2-0-2 in the last 4 meetings.

    CONSENSUS:
    The road chalk Stampeders are getting 59 percent of the action from users and the Over is picking up 59 percent of the totals wagers.

    EXTRA POINTS:

    * The Stampeders have won 15 of their last 16 meetings with the Blue Bombers.

    * Calgary QB Bo Levi Mitchell is tied for the league lead in touchdown passes with five through two games.

    * Winnipeg recorded two interceptions in Week 1 after leading the CFL with 30 in 2016.

    Saturday's CFL doubleheader betting preview and odds
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Ottawa Redblacks quarterback Trevor Harris received one of the CFL Top Performer of the Week honours after throwing for 425 yards and two touchdowns in Week 2.

    Toronto Argonauts at Ottawa Redblacks (-4, 55.5)

    The Ottawa Redblacks look for their first win of the season when they host the Toronto Argonauts on Saturday. The Redblacks have stumbled out of the starting blocks as they played out a 31-31 tie with the Calgary Stampeders before dropping a 43-39 decision in the Week 2 rematch, and the defending Grey Cup champions hope to find their groove in their first East Division clash of the campaign.

    "If you let losses stick with you they're going to leak into the next week," Ottawa quarterback Trevor Harris told reporters. "We have an Eastern game and we have to come out fighting and ready to roll." The Argonauts came crashing down to earth after a promising Week 1 victory as they fell 28-15 to the BC Lions. Toronto was held to one touchdown after piling up 524 yards of total offence in its season-opening 32-15 victory against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, but were held to 143 net yards against the Lions, and hope to put the loss in the rearview mirror as the Argonauts prepare for their first road trip of the season. "They are the defending champs and in reality this is going to be a statement game for us," Toronto defensive back Rico Murray told reporters. "It will tell us where we're heading as a team and what direction."

    TV:
    7:30 p.m. ET, TSN, RDS

    LINE HISTORY:
    The Redblacks opened as 5.5-point home chalk against the Argos and that spread has been bet steadily down to four. The total hit the betting board at 55 and was bet up to a full point to 56, before fading down to 55.5. Check out the complete line history here.

    Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Saskatchewan Roughriders (-2.5, 51.5)

    The Saskatchewan Roughriders host the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in a battle of winless teams Saturday. The Roughriders have dropped their first two games of the season by a combined four points, including a heartbreaking 43-40 double-overtime loss to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the first CFL game at the new Mosaic Stadium on Canada Day, and hope to turn their fortunes around by beating Hamilton for only the second time in six meetings.

    "We have to play better," Saskatchewan coach Chris Jones told reporters. "We have to find a way to do things the correct way 100 percent of the time and not just some of the time." The Tiger-Cats had a week off to lick their wounds following a disappointing 32-15 setback to the Toronto Argonauts. Many experts considered Hamilton to be the main challenger to the Ottawa Redblacks in the battle for the East Division title but the Tiger-Cats looked anything but contenders as they were held to 232 yards of net offence and surrendered five sacks against the Argonauts. Hamilton has dropped six of its last seven regular-season games dating back to last year, but fared well recently against the Roughriders, winning four of the last five meetings, including a 53-7 thrashing Aug. 20, 2016.

    LINE HISTORY:
    The Roughriders opened as two-point home chalk against the Tiger-Cats and that line was quickly bet up to 2.5, then faded as low as -1 before rebounding back to 2.5 as of Friday night. The total hit the betting board at 53.5 and was bet down to 51, it has since bounced up slightly to 51.5.

    ABOUT THE TIGER-CATS (0-1 SU, 0-1 ATS, 0-1 O/U):
    Terrence Toliver, who caught 65 passes for 1,036 yards and nine touchdowns in 2016, was put on the six-game injured list after suffering a knee injury in the first quarter against Toronto. Hamilton's secondary was torched for 506 passing yards in its opener and will once again be without two defensive backs in all-star Abdul Kanneh and Emanuel Davis, who was placed on the six-game injured list. "We had some guys that had a lot of mental errors and it starts there," Hamilton coach Kent Austin told reporters. "We're looking forward to seeing some improvement going into the second game and we're going to tinker early and find out the most competitive team."

    ABOUT THE ROUGHRIDERS (0-2 SU, 1-1 ATS, 1-1 O/U):
    Kevin Glenn threw for 377 yards and four touchdowns including a scoring toss to Nic Demski, who finished with seven receptions for 82 yards against Winnipeg. Defensive end Jonathan Newsome, who appeared in all 18 games for Saskatchewan last season, was released Tuesday while linebacker Henoc Muamba could be in line to make his season debut after being taken off the six-game injured list. Tyler Crapigna missed a potential game-winning field goal for the second week in a row, prompting Jones to hold an open kicking competition between Crapigna and Quinn Van Gylswyk at practice this week.

    TRENDS:
