I was able to bounce back from one of my only losing weeks of the season by going 3-1 in week 18. The Argos, Bombers and Eskimos all came through for me, while the Stampeders won by 2 points, which didn’t quite cover the -2.5 and prevented the perfect week.
I’m now 28-22-2 with my CFL picks this season. I will be using the odds from SportsInteraction.com for my pick again this week. They are our top rated betting site for Canadians and they are actually partnered with several CFL teams this season. Check out our full SIA review here.
Toronto Argonauts @ Montreal Alouettes
- Toronto +10.5
- Montreal -10.5
The Argos were able to get a win last week, but it was over the lowly Redblacks. Ottawa and Toronto are easily the worst two teams in the league this season and I expect the Alouettes to put up big points vs the Argos at home this Friday.
Montreal is 5-2 at home this season and I don’t see any reason why they won’t get this win and continue their stellar play leading into the playoffs.
Play: Alouettes -10.5
Saskatchewan Roughriders @ BC Lions
- Saskatchewan -4.5
- BC +4.5
The Lions were stifled by the Eskimos defense last week in Edmonton, and I think this showed that the Lions recent string of success was primarily due to playing weak opponents for a stretch.
The Roughriders are a top team in this league that is in a battle with Calgary for the coveted top spot in the West. I think they come into BC and win this game by double digits.
Play: Roughriders -4.5
Ottawa Redblacks @ Hamilton Tiger-Cats
- Ottawa +17.5
- Hamilton -17.5
This is a huge spread, but I still can’t pick the Redblacks at this point in the season. Ottawa won’t be able to put up any points in Hamilton, and the Ti-Cats should have their way running up the score in this one.
It’s tough to lay 17.5 points to anyone, but this is a spot where I think the Ti-Cats could be even bigger favourites.
Play: Tiger-Cats -17.5
Winnipeg Blue Bombers @ Calgary Stampeders
- Winnipeg +7
- Calgary -7
The Bombers looked solid getting the win last week vs Montreal. This week they head out on the road to face Calgary in a game that will have huge ramifications on who claims that huge top spot in the West.
I think the spread is pretty much spot on in this game. I like the Stampeders to win, but I think the Bombers may be able to keep things close. I probably won’t be betting this line myself, but I’ll take the Bombers +7 as my lean.
Play: Blue Bombers +7
