CFL Picks Week 7

CFL Picks Week 7
Wow! Time is flying by in the blink of an eye eh? Week 7 of the CFL schedule is upon us and we are heading into the second third of the season. Two things have remained constant during the first 25 contests - the West is the best and the East has the least. Calgary visiting Toronto opens the action on Thursday when the Stampeders and Argonauts battle at 7:30 PM ET on August 3, 2017.

CFL Football Games This Week

Playing out fairly close to what we forecasted, Week 6 saw West Division squads go 4-1 while the East was a dismal 0-3 in their contests. Winnipeg posted a miracle win over Montreal, Edmonton separated from BC in the fourth quarter, Saskatchewan rolled past Toronto and Calgary humbled Hamilton. Favorites went 2-2 against the spread and 4-0 straight up. All four contests went OVER their game total as the Stampeders 60-1 trouncing of the Tiger-Cats was the lowest Week 6 score.

Rolling into the second third of the season, the Stamps vs Boatmen battle is rematch of the 100th Grey Cup game. That contest is followed by a Friday Night doubleheader on August 4, as Ottawa hosts Winnipeg at 7:00 PM ET and then winless Hamilton visits undefeated Edmonton at 9:30 PM ET. A suddenly important West Division fight closes out Week 7 as Saskatchewan rolls into smokey British Columbia for a 7:00 PM ET kickoff on August 5. Attempting to figure out what went wrong late last week – Montreal is on a BYE week. Check out this week’s LIVE CFL wagering lines above.

CFL Predictions Today and Week 6 Review

Although we have a solid grasp on the league in general, we are still trying to get a full grip on the tough CFL spread prices. Our Week 6 picks went 3-1 SU and 2-2 ATS bringing our season totals to 17-6-1 SU (with one No Pick) and 12-11-2 ATS. We split our Blue Bombers bets when the Alouettes offence busted out in Winnipeg last week. We also dropped both bets on the Argos vs ‘Riders while picking up SU and ATS wins with Edmonton and Calgary over BC and Hamilton respectively. We are dealing with some fairly large lines this week so let’s dig into the CFL Week 7 wagering options.

Stop the presses! We finally posted a double win with Calgary. The slow start concerned us slightly but the Cats were toast early in the second frame. It was so bad, the Red & White used all three of their QB’s and starter Bo Levi Mitchell only played the first half which ended 39-1 for the home side. Toronto was close, down three points late, but a last minute ‘Riders TD sealed a 38-27 win. Since Calgary lost 35-22 during Grey Cup 100, the Stamps are 7-1 vs the Argos, including six straight by a combined 205-116 count. Lay the -5.5 (-110) at SportsInteraction and side with the visitors here.

Final Score: Calgary Stampeders 41-24

  • Winnipeg at Ottawa Pick: Redblacks -2.5 (-110) ATS at Bodog

Too little – too late was the story for our Winnipeg ATS pick last week. Tied 27-27 after 3 periods, Montreal scored 13 straight points before the Blue Bombers racked up 14, including a 1-yard TD run as the clock hit zeros, to win 41-40. The Bombers (3-2-0) are a slight enigma to us. After they recorded their first win in Week 5, a 24-19 victory over Montreal, Ottawa enjoyed a BYE last week. Whether due to a Grey Cup hangover, or a tough early season schedule, the Champs (1-4-1) have also been difficult to read. Bodog has the Redblacks as  -2.5 (-110) chalk and we’re laying the line.

Final Score: Winnipeg Blue Bombers 33-30

  • Hamilton at Edmonton Pick: Eskimos -9.5 (-110) ATS at William Hill

Going from the penthouse to the outhouse is never good. After a four-year Grey Cup contending run – Hamilton has been outscored 40-18 and they’ve stumbled to a 0-5 record so far this season. Following a 60-1 loss in Calgary, rock bottom may be reached during a visit to the 5-0 Eskimos this week. Edmonton is dealing with a multitude of injuries but their stingy defense will still be a stiff challenge for the Cats offense and struggling QB Zach Collaros. The Green & Gold are -9.5 (-110) chalk at William Hill and, with zero confidence in Hamilton, we are sledding with the Eskimos.

Final Score: Edmonton Eskimos 33-28

  • Saskatchewan at BC Pick: Lions -6.5 (-110) ATS at Bet365

Fool’s Gold in the ultra-tough West Division, Saskatchewan is trying to get back into the playoff race after a Week 5 win moved them to 2-3. That is a game behind Winnipeg in the race to determine which team crosses over to the East in the first round of the postseason. BC is looking to get back on track as the Eskimos handled them fairly easy in Edmonton last week. Backup QB Travis Lulay has cooled some for BC while ‘Rider QB Kevin Glenn still can’t be trusted. With the spread price being a hook under a TD we are prowling with the BC Lions -6.5 (-110) ATS line at Bet365.

Final Score: British Columbia Lions 30-15
