Game of the Week

Toronto Argonauts 2.90 at Calgary Stampeders 1.43

This game is more pivotal for both teams than it appears. Toronto leads the East Division at 8-5 and has a chance to make a bit of a statement on Saturday night. A win would push it past Calgary and get them on a few more radars regarding Grey Cup odds. 

For Canadian Sports Bettors, Calgary needs to put a run together heading into the playoffs. Though it had that huge win in British Columbia last week, consistency has been tough to find. It does seem like it alternates wins and losses a bit too often. This is in contrast to Toronto, which has won four straight games.

Calgary is now 9-5 for connecting on the Over. It currently possesses the league’s second-best offense at just less than 31 points per game. At this point, there may be a safe wager. Canadian Sports Bettors may be less inclined to anchor to the offense. The last meeting was a one-score game which combined for a mere 41 points.

The Stampeders are a tough team to figure out, honestly. Calgary does play better at home, and so does Jake Maier. Toronto, however, is not quite the same team as it was more than a month ago. 

The defense is the way for sports bettors in a matchup where both teams may try to keep things close. Even with that Over at 52.5, expect a game where 50 points are possible, but the under should just win out.

Bet the Under again and wait to see if Toronto gets more than 5.5 points. Oh, heck, take the 5.5.

Crazy Bet of the Week

Montreal Alouettes 1.59 at Edmonton Elks 2.45

Edmonton amazed us two weeks ago. Now, we try the even crazier notion that the Elks will finally win a game at home. 

Montreal is starting to mount a bit of a charge. A win gets it to .500, puts pressure on Saskatchewan, and even a little on Toronto. Everyone enjoys a little chaos now and then.

Inevitably, can the Elks win at home? Furthermore, can Hamilton win on the road? It is 0-6 on the season and 1-5 ATS. It is scary as Edmonton is 4-4 on the road. There is another team like this. Ottawa. Ottawa is .500 on the road but 0-7 at home.

Let’s take the Elks on Saturday afternoon at 2.45. If one feels less comfortable, take a shot at the Over at 54.0 as another betting choice. At some point, a team has to win at home, maybe?
