Week Eight CFL Action Ends With Argonauts Hosting Lions
BC Lions: Slim road chalk heading into battle versus Toronto
Following a 23-6 whitewash in Winnipeg against the Blue Bombers back in Week 5 CFL action, British Columbia has won two straight games. The Leo’s went into Calgary and upset the Stampeders 25-24 two weeks ago and then returned home to register a 36-29 come from behind win over Hamilton last week. Top chalk to win the Grey Cup back in the preseason, the Lions have been a difficult team to figure out with QB Kevin Glenn guiding the ship in place of starter Travis Lulay – who will suit up for a second straight week but still may not play as he recovers from November 2013 shoulder surgery That said, Glenn, who was the CFL Week 7 Offensive Player of the Week after he passed for 407 yards versus the Tiger-Cats, will be a on short leash if he stumbles early tonight.
Argonauts: Two games in five days is a tough test for the Boatmen
While we often wonder what makes the Canadian Football League schedule makers tick, our wonder as turned to confusion as Toronto is playing on a little over four days of rest tonight. It’s kind of ironic as the Argos faced a tired Winnipeg team who were in a similar situation on Tuesday. Despite missing All World star receiver Chad Owens, it continues be bombs away for QB Ricky Ray and the Argonauts as Ray completed 26 of 33 passes for 297 yards and four touchdowns versus the Blue Bombers on Tuesday. Despite the cross-country trip, we like the Leo’s who have had eight plus days to prepare for the weary Boatmen. A final in the 31-23 range feels about right here.
CFL Predictions: Give us a 300 unit wager on the BC Lions point spread price at the bet365 sportsbook. We will also spend 200 units on a BC ATS plus OVER parlay as scoring shouldn’t be a problem for either squad here.
