Game of the Week 

Winnipeg Blue Bombers (Even) at Calgary Stampeders (Even)

This game could be a pretty good offensive show in its own right. The last meeting went down to the wire as Winnipeg held Calgary out of the endzone on the last play. Calgary had a chance to tie the game. Both teams had chances to score even more than the 26-19 outcome indicated.

Winnipeg, as we mentioned, keeps winning. It is a CFL-best 5-2 against the spread, but the Under is also a robust 5-2. Zach Collaros leads the league in passing yards with 1,705 but has played seven games.

Both teams are excellent but can Calgary figure out a way to slow down Carlton Agudosi? Agudosi, the talented Winnipeg wide receiver, used his considerable reach to haul in two touchdowns. The Stampeders did not seem to have any answers. 

Bo-Levi Mitchell has been better this year but was an awful 12 for 28 in Winnipeg with just 167 yards passing. He had a touchdown and that interception which honestly was not his fault. Is this the week Winnipeg finally loses one?

Take the Even spread here and side with Calgary this time around. If the Stampeders needed to make a statement, it is now.

Best Bet of the Week

British Columbia Lions (1.77) at Saskatchewan Rough Riders (2.10)

The Over on the slate has been good for some teams but bad for one in particular (Winnipeg). So, the best news here is that British Columbia has connected on the Over in four of their five games. It has the added luxury of two bye weeks. 

After losing last week, a short-handed Saskatchewan team faces a high-flying offence in the Lions. After all, British Columbus leads the league in points per game at 35.2. That makes for an exciting series of bets in this tilt. 

Straying from the moneyline is a simple way to look at this tilt. The Over remains reachable at 49.0.

Saskatchewan’s scoring might be erratic but should be able to put up points at home. Canadian bettors should note that British Columbia gave up 43 points in its road clash against Winnipeg. 

Pick the Over-Under, Canadian bettors.
