CFL Week 4 Betting Picks 2018

I kicked off my CFL picks for 2018 in week 3 by going 2-2.  I do feel like I’m getting a better grasp on the quality of each team as we move further into the season though, so I hope to move into the profit this week.

I will be using the odds from for my CFL picks throughout the season.  They are our top rated sportsbook for Canadians.  Check out our full SIA review here.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats vs Saskatchewan Roughriders

  • Hamilton -7.5
  • Saskatchewan +7.5

The Roughriders looked awful in last weeks game against the Alouettes.  Duron Carter should not be at DB.  It’s crazy to me that an All-Star wide receiver is being used as a defensive back.  Jeremiah Masoli should be able to take advantage of Carter this week, so I don’t see the Ti-Cats having any trouble moving the ball.

Look for the Ti-Cats to run up the score in this one and for the Riders to have to finally admit they need to go out and find a real DB for the injured Nick Marshall.

Play: Ti-Cats -7.5

Ottawa Redblacks vs Montreal Alouettes

  • Ottawa -7.5
  • Montreal +7.5

I do not think last weeks win means the Alouettes are an improved team.  They simply took advantage of a depleted Roughriders team that had a glaring hole on defense.  The Redblacks do not have such a hole and should be able to win this game on the road.

Ottawa is the superior team and although this is a difficult spread to cover on the road, I expect them to have no trouble scoring, which should lead to a cover.

Play: Redblacks -7.5

Edmonton Eskimos vs Toronto Argonauts

  • Edmonton -3.5
  • Toronto +3.5

The Argos are coming off a bye week and they will be itching to get back in there after their embarrassing 41-7 home loss to the Stamps in week 2.  The defending champs are an average team in this league, but I think they will come out and have a good game on Saturday to get into the win column.

Edmonton is also an average team in my eyes, so I do not like them as road favourites in this spot.

Play: Argonauts +3.5

BC Lions vs Winnipeg Blue Bombers

  • BC +4.5
  • Winnipeg -4.5

The Lions did not look good last week in Edmonton.  The Bombers also lost in Hamilton, but I think the Ti-Cats are the real deal this year, so I’m expecting the Bombers to bounce back at home against a weak Lions team.

This is an important game for the Bombers to avoid going 1-3 to start the season.  I see Winnipeg as the second best team in the West and I expect the cream to rise to the top starting with this game.

Play: Blue Bombers -4.5
