    CFL Betting Notes - Week 8

    Week 7 Recap

    Calgary stretched its straight-up winning streak to three games with a 41-24 romp over Toronto last Thursday night as a six-point road favorite to kick off action in Week 7 of the CFL regular season. Winnipeg outlasted Ottawa 33-30 in the first of two games on Friday night’s slate, but it could not cover against the spread as a 3 ½-point road favorite.

    Edmonton remained perfect on the year with a 33-28 victory against Hamilton in the second half of Friday night’s action, but the Eskimos failed to cover as heavy nine-point favorites at home. British Columbia closed out the week with a 30-15 rout of Saskatchewan on Saturday as a seven-point home favorite.

    Thursday, Aug. 10

    Edmonton Eskimos (6-0 SU, 2-4 ATS) vs. Ottawa RedBlacks (1-5-1 SU, 5-2 ATS)

    Point-spread: Edmonton -2 ½
    Total: 55

    Game Overview

    The Eskimos remained perfect on the year with last week’s win, but these close calls have been murder on bettors trying to ride this team against the spread. Mike Reilly had another productive day throwing the ball against the Tiger-Cats with 317 yards passing and two scores while completing 29 of his 38 passing attempts. LaDarius Perkins led the way on the ground in that game with 105 rushing yards on 19 carries.

    Ottawa has been a bit snake bit in its surprising 1-5-1 SU start. The RedBlacks have remained competitive in every game they have played this season and those five losses were by a combined 13 points. Trevor Harris is the second-leading passer in the CFL with 2,202 yards and he is leading the way in touchdown throws with 14. One big issue has been an Ottawa defense that is allowing an average of 28.9 points per game.

    Betting Trends

    -- Ottawa has covered ATS in five of the last six meetings, but it is just 4-13 SU in the last 17 games between these two teams. The total has stayed UNDER in seven of the last 10 meetings.

    Friday, Aug. 11

    Toronto Argonauts (3-4 SU, 2-5 ATS) vs. Montreal Alouettes (2-4 SU, 3-3 ATS)

    Point-spread: OFF
    Total: OFF

    Game Overview

    This game remains OFF the board given the day-to-day playing status of quarterback Ricky Ray with a shoulder injury, but the fact that he worked with the first-team offense in Sunday’s walk through practice is a good sign that he might be ready to go come Friday night. Ray continues to lead the CFL in total passing yards with 2,421 yards despite missing the entire second half of last Thursday’s loss to Calgary.

    Advertisement
    Montreal is coming off a Week 7 bye after losing a last-second 41-40 heart breaker against Winnipeg the week before as a four-point road underdog. Despite the loss, the Alouettes have to feel good about scoring that many points as opposed to their season scoring average of 23.5 PPG. That Week 6 loss to the Blue Bombers was the first time that this defense allowed more than 23 points this season.

    Betting Trends

    -- Montreal has a 4-2 edge both SU and ATS in the last six meetings, but it falls to 2-5 both SU and ATS in its last seven road games against the Argonauts. The total has stayed UNDER in eight of the last 10 meetings in Montreal.

    Saturday, Aug. 12

    Winnipeg Blue Bombers (4-2 SU, 4-2 ATS) vs. Hamilton Tiger-Cats (0-6 SU, 2-4 ATS)

    Point-spread: Winnipeg -2 ½
    Total: 59 ½

    Game Overview

    The Blue Bombers have been a scoring machine this season with an average of 33.7 PPG, but they have actually given up seven more points than they have posted which equates to a points-allowed average of 34.8. Matt Nichols has led the way with 1,757 yards passing and 11 touchdown throws and Andrew Harris has anchored the running game with 283 yards and four scores on 65 rushing attempts.

    Hamilton looked much better in last week’s five-point loss to Edmonton after being on the wrong side of an embarrassing 60-1 loss to Calgary the week before as a 12 ½-point road underdog. The Tiger-Cats have averaged just 19.7 PPG this year while allowing an average of 39 points a game on defense. Zach Collaros has pretty much gone the distance at quarterback this season and he has thrown for 1,425 yards and six scores.

    Betting Trends

    -- The Tiger-Cats have won eight of the last 11 meetings SU and it has a 6-3 edge ATS in their last nine games against the Blue Bombers. The total has stayed UNDER in nine of the last 10 meetings in Hamilton

    Sunday, Aug. 13

    British Columbia Lions (5-2 SU, 4-3 ATS) vs. Saskatchewan Roughriders (2-4 SU, 3-3 ATS)

    Point-spread: BC -3 ½
    Total: 54 ½

    Game Overview

    BC comes into the backend of this Western Division home-and-home series with a 3-1 record on the road this season both SU and ATS. It was able to keep the Roughriders off the scoreboard in last week’s home-and-home opener until the fourth quarter when the game was already out of hand. With the exception of the Lions’ two losses to Edmonton this season, they have outscored their opponents in those five SU wins by a combined 53 points.

    Saskatchewan turned to Brandon Bridge for a spark last week at quarterback late in the game and he led the team to two fourth quarter scores, but it is pretty safe to expect Kevin Glenn to remain at the helm as this team’s starter. He did complete 19-of-27 throws for 186 yards in that loss, but he was also picked off twice. On the year, he has thrown for 11 touchdowns against six interceptions.

    Betting Trends

    -- BC has a 4-1 record SU in its last five road games against Saskatchewan while going a perfect 5-0 ATS. The total has stayed UNDER in nine of the last 11 meetings in Saskatchewan.

    Thursday's CFL Betting Preview and Odds: Eskimos at RedBlacks
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Mike Reilly threw for 317 yards and accounted for four touchdowns against Hamilton to extend his touchdown passing streak to 16 regular-season games, which is tied for the longest in franchise history.

    Edmonton Eskimos at Ottawa RedBlacks (-2, 55.5)

    The Edmonton Eskimos look to keep their perfect record intact when they hit the road to take on the Ottawa RedBlacks on Thursday. The Eskimos held off the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 33-28 on Friday to improve to 6-0 for the first time since 1961 and hope to continue their winning ways by sweeping the season series with the RedBlacks following a 23-21 victory July 14.

    Edmonton's offence hasn't skipped a beat despite injuries to their top two running backs John White (knee) and Travon Van (shoulder), and star wide receiver Adarius Bowman (hamstring) as they have put up 31 or more points in three consecutive games. Ottawa is the only team in CFL history to have its first seven games decided by five points or fewer after a 33-30 setback to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The RedBlacks failed once again to hold on to a late lead, giving up 10 points in the final five minutes to suffer their fifth loss in six games, and hope to bounce back by beating a West Division opponent for the first time in five tries. "You can call me crazy but I still believe in this team," Ottawa quarterback Trevor Harris told reporters. "We'll keep fighting and we'll put together a string of wins as we're a good team."

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

    LINE HISTORY:
    The Edmonton Eskimos opened as 2.5-point road favorites and on Wednesday morning, that line flipped all of the way to Ottawa -2. The total hit the betting boards at 55 and has been bumped slightly to 55.5.

    ABOUT THE ESKIMOS (6-0 SU, 2-3-1 ATS, 3-3 O/U):
    Mike Reilly threw for 317 yards and accounted for four touchdowns against Hamilton to extend his touchdown passing streak to 16 regular-season games, which is tied for the longest in franchise history. "The West is a dogfight and you have to keep winning to keep pace and keep that slim lead," Reilly told reporters. "We dug ourselves a big hole last year as we were 2-4 but 6-0 feels a lot better." Brandon Zylstra saw his three-game streak of 100-yard receiving games come to an end after he suffered a lower-body injury in the first half and his status for Thursday's contest is unknown while centre Justin Sorensen hurt his knee and is questionable.

    ABOUT THE REDBLACKS (1-5-1 SU, 5-2 ATS, 3-4 O/U):
    William Powell rushed for 85 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game with a lower-body injury in the third quarter and could miss Thursday's clash. Defensive end Arnaud Gascon-Nadon, who has registered two sacks this season, missed the second half of the Winnipeg loss with an undisclosed injury and is questionable against Edmonton. Greg Ellingson continues to have a career year as he caught five passes for 59 yards a touchdown to take his total to a league-best 702 while kick returner/wide Quincy McDuffie accounted for 145 yards of return yards in his Ottawa debut.

    TRENDS:


    * Eskimos are 0-3-2 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.

    * RedBlacks are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games in August.

    * Over is 11-4 in Eskimos last 15 games in August.

    * Over is 7-2 in RedBlacks last 9 home games.

    * Eskimos are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

    CONSENSUS:
    The road favorite Eskimos are getting 65 percent of the action from Covers users and the Over is picking up 59 percent of the totals wagers.

    EXTRA POINTS:

    * Reilly leads the CFL in total touchdowns (15) -- 11 passing and four rushing.
    * Ottawa has dropped five games by a combined 13 points.
    * Ellingson has caught a touchdown pass in three straight games.

    Saturday's CFL betting preview and odds: Blue Bombers at Tiger-Cats

    Winnipeg has scored at least 33 points in each of its last four games and can improve to 4-0 against East Division opponents in 2017 with another victory.

    Winnipeg Blue Bombers at Hamilton Tiger-Cats (+2.5, 59.5)

    The Winnipeg Blue Bombers look to extend their winning streak to three games when they battle the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on the road Saturday. The Blue Bombers have won back-to-back games on the final play as Andrew Harris ran for a 1-yard touchdown in the 41-40 victory against the Montreal Alouettes before Justin Medlock kicked a field goal as time expired to down the Ottawa Redblacks 33-30, and hope to win their third straight meeting with the Tiger-Cats after sweeping the season series in 2016.

    Winnipeg has scored at least 33 points in each of its last four games and can improve to 4-0 against East Division opponents in 2017 with another victory. Hamilton is still searching for its first win of the season following a 33-28 setback to the Edmonton Eskimos in Week 7. The Tiger-Cats demoted defensive coordinator Jeff Reinebold on Tuesday and replaced him with former linebackers coach Phillip Lolley, who will be tasked with turning around a struggling unit which ranks last in points allowed (39) and net yards allowed (460.8) per game. "Phillip is a great football mind that has been around the game at all levels for a very long time," Hamilton coach Kent Austin told reporters. "He has been an excellent addition to our coaching staff this season and we fully expect him to flourish in his expanded role with our team moving forward."

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

    LINE HISTORY:
    The Blue Bombers opened as 2.5-point road favorites and was bet down as low at 1.5 before bouncing back to an even 2. The total opened at 59.5 and has yet to move off the opening number.

    ABOUT THE BLUE BOMBERS (4-2 SU, 4-2 ATS, 5-1 O/U):
    Medlock was named one of the CFL's Top Performers of the Week after he kicked six field goals, including the game-winning 38-yard attempt as time expired, against Ottawa. "Most guys that are at the top of the heap in their craft make it look easy," Winnipeg coach Mike O'Shea said of Medlock. "He works extremely hard to make it look like that." Wide receiver Addison Richards, who was selected 11th overall in the 2015 CFL Draft, announced his retirement after a slew of injuries hampered his ability to stay in the lineup.

    ABOUT THE TIGER-CATS (0-6 SU, 1-4-1 ATS, 5-1 O/U):
    Zach Collaros threw for 282 yards and three touchdowns against Edmonton after being limited to 102 yards the previous week against the Calgary Stampeders. All-star defensive back Emanuel Davis, who hasn't made an appearance this year because of injury, practiced with the team this week and could be in line to make his season debut. Hamilton made a series of roster moves as they signed offensive lineman Tony Washington, defensive end Mike McAdoo and wide receiver Gerell Robinson while releasing quarterback Logan Kilgore and wide receiver Kevin Elliott, who has caught 11 touchdown passes since 2015 with Toronto and Hamilton.

    Sunday's CFL betting preview and odds: Lions at Roughriders

    Bryan Burnham was named one of the CFL's Top Performers of the Week after hauling in five passes for 131 yards and a touchdown against Saskatchewan.

    BC Lions at Saskatchewan Roughriders (+2, 56)

    The BC Lions look to beat the Saskatchewan Roughriders for the second time in nine days when they travel to Regina in the last game of a home-and-home set Sunday. The Lions jumped out to a big lead and never looked back en route to a 30-15 victory in the first matchup and hope to continue their dominance in the series by downing the Roughriders for the eighth consecutive time.

    Quarterback Jonathon Jennings is likely to return to the starting lineup after suffering a shoulder injury on the first play from scrimmage against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on July 15, bumping Travis Lulay into a backup role despite the veteran going 3-1 in his absence. Saskatchewan is heading in the wrong direction in an ultra-competitive West Division. The Roughriders, who trailed 30-0 before scoring two consolation touchdowns late in the fourth quarter against BC in Week 7, are the only team in the division with a losing record and sit six points behind the Lions as they desperately try to dig themselves out of the cellar by notching their first victory in the series since a 20-16 victory Aug. 24, 2014. "It's good for us to play them (again) because we get a chance to redeem ourselves," Saskatchewan defensive back Jovon Johnson told reporters. "We have to match their effort on the field and be the more physical team."

    LINE HISTORY:
    The Lions opened up as 3.5-point road chalk and that number has been bet down to 2. The total opened at 54.5 and was driven up as high as 56 before fading to 55.5.

    ABOUT THE LIONS (5-2 SU, 4-2 ATS, 3-3 O/U):
    Bryan Burnham was named one of the CFL's Top Performers of the Week after hauling in five passes for 131 yards and a touchdown against Saskatchewan while Chris Williams had three receptions for 75 yards in his first game of 2017 after tearing his ACL last season. BC made some significant roster moves during the week bringing back veteran defensive end Ricky Foley, who was drafted by the Lions in 2005, and signing offensive lineman Andrew Jones to provide depth for a unit that is missing Cody Husband and David Foucault because of the concussion protocol. Defensive back Buddy Jackson is in line for another start as Anthony Gaitor continues to recover from an undisclosed injury.

    ABOUT THE ROUGHRIDERS (2-4 SU, 3-3 ATS, 3-3 O/U):
    Kevin Glenn completed 19-of-27 passes for 186 yards against BC to move past the legendary Ron Lancaster in sixth place on the CFL's all-time passing list. Duron Carter continued his stellar play of late, catching five passes for 83 yards and a touchdown to give him 14 receptions for 214 yards and three scores in his last two games. Saskatchewan moved offensive lineman Dan Clark (elbow) and defensive lineman Zach Minter (calf), who has registered seven tackles and a sack this season, to the six-game injured list with Brendon LaBatte sliding over to centre and Ese Mrabure filling in at defensive tackle.

    TRENDS:

    * Lions are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in August.

    * Roughriders are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games in August.

    * Over is 6-1 in Lions last 7 games following a straight up win.
