Week 4 picks

Time is truly flying this summer, as Week 4 of the 2019 CFL season is already upon us. Week 3 provided even more riveting action, with Winnipeg, Hamilton, Calgary and Saskatchewan all coming away with victories for its fans. 

Now, four more games are on the schedule, with the Blue Bombers and RedBlacks set to face off Friday night in a battle of undefeated teams. We take a look at that showdown and all the other contests on the docket in this week's Canada Sports Betting preview.  


Hamilton looking to stay redhot against Montreal

So far, it's been smooth sailing this season for the Tiger-Cats. Hamilton owns a perfect 3-0 record and have a great shot of improving to 4-0 against Montreal on Thursday night. It's the first showdown of the week for CFL fans. 

The Allouettes have had a rough year, posting an 0-3. The Tiger-Cats are 12.5-point favorites for this showdown per Sports Interaction, holding 1.91 odds to get it done. They should cruise to their fourth win on the year.

Ottawa set to host Winnipeg in Game of the Week 

The biggest game of the week no question will take place on Friday night when the Ottawa RedBlacks host the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Both teams are 2-0, hungry for bragging rights against their undefeated foes. 

Ottawa RedBlacks To cover 3.5-point spread against Winnipeg

With Ottawa holding the home-field advantage, they're slight favorites at 3.5 points. They have 1.91 odds to cover the spread. In what should be a see-saw battle, we'll go with the home team to come away with the win. 


Will BC finally get on track this weekend?

So far this season, BC fans have been left with nothing but disappointment. The Lions had high hopes entering the new campaign, but find themselves 0-3 after three weeks of play. They've got a perfect opportunity to earn win No. 1 in the coming days, though. 

The Lions will take on Toronto on Saturday night, as the Argonauts are 0-2 on the year. BC is listed as seven-point favorites, with 1.91 odds to get that job done. Finally, we think they'll earn that victory. 

BC Lions To cover seven-point spread against Toronto

Stampeders ready to upset Saskatchewan on the road

Another prime showdown will feature the defending Grey Cup champion Stampeders on the road against Saskatchewan. Calgary (1-1) earned its first victory last week, while Saskatechewan is 1-2. 

Calgary Stampeders To upset Saskatchewan on the road

The Stampeders are 3.5-point underdogs (1.91 odds), but don't let that number fool you. This team will be ready to get after it once again the second they hit the gridiron. Could an upset be on the way? We think so. 

Week 3 picks

The 2019 CFL season is in full swing right now, as we’re getting ready for Week 3 of the campaign. There are plenty of available CFL betting odds.

Week 2 proved to be electric, as there were some high-scoring battles across the league. Heading into the new week, though, who will enter the gridiron with confidence?

A total of four teams remain undefeated, with the Tiger-Cats, Redblacks and Eskimos all posting 2-0 starts, while the Blue Bombers are 1-0. On Thursday night, Week 3 kicks off with a bang, as the Eskimos and Blue Bombers square off. We take a look at that and more in our preview.

Winnipeg ready to host Edmonton in what should be a close one

Yup, the week truly is getting started on a high note, as the 1-0 Blue Bombers will host the 2-0 Eskimos. Winnipeg had a bye last week, while Edmonton dominated the BC Lions 39-23. In that win, quarterback Trevor Harris put on a show, throwing for 294 yards and three touchdowns, plus a rushing TD.

According to Sports Interaction, Winnipeg is four-point favorites, with 1.91 odds to cover the spread. They also hold 1.54 moneyline odds. While Edmonton could make things interesting late, we like the Blue Bombers to win this one comfortably and cover the spread.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers To cover the four-point spread

Tiger-Cats enter Friday as monster favorites over Montreal

Heading into the new season, we knew it could prove to be a long one for Alouettes fans. Already 0-1 on the year, Montreal will have the difficult task of traveling to Hamilton to try and upset the Tiger-Cats. And that will be no easy feat. Hamilton is a perfect 2-0 thus far, outscoring its opponents 87-31.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats To cover the 14-point spread

With home-field advantage for this one, the Tiger-Cats are a head-turning 14-point favorites over Montreal, with that payout featuring 1.91 odds. Moneyline wise, they have 1.14 odds, Montreal is listed at 6.53. This one could get ugly and quick. Look for Hamilton to win by more than 14.


Stampeders look to get back on track against the Lions

Any preseason hype surrounding the BC Lions has gone ahead and flown out the window. That’s what will happen when your team starts the new year 0-2, and is expected to fall to 0-3 this weekend. BC will travel to Calgary this weekend to take on a hungry Stampeders unit.

Calgary’s season started with a stunning 32-28 home loss to Ottawa. It wasn’t what Bo Levi Mitchell and the defending Grey Cup champs had in mind. Now, they’re looking for revenge and will hope for BC to pay the price.

The Stampeders have 1.19 moneyline odds and 1.91 odds to cover a 10.5-point spread. They’ll win on Saturday, but BC covering 10.5 points at 1.91 odds could be a smart move.

Monday Night Football is headed to Saskatchewan

Perhaps the best part of football returning to our living rooms is Monday Night Football. This week’s edition will feature a showdown between the Roughriders and Argonauts, with Saskatchewan listed as enormous favorites to capture their first victory of the year.

Saskatchewan Roughriders To beat the Toronto Argonauts

The Roughriders are 13.5-point favorites, with 1.91 odds to cover the spread and 1.15 moneyline odds. Both teams are yet to record a win this year, but that will change Monday night. Similar to Montreal, it’s expected to be a long season for Toronto. Things won’t get much better for them in what should be a lopsided road loss at Saskatchewan.

Week 2 picks

After an exciting first week of Canadian Football League action, we are all set for Week 2 to get underway. There were some shockers last week, so the question begs: Which teams will come out on top in the coming days?

The Ottawa Redblacks stunned everyone in Canada when they took down the defending champion Calgary Stampeders over the weekend. How will they follow that up? We break down that game and more in our CFL Week 2 preview.


Ottawa and Saskatchewan open Week 2 on Thursday night

The Redblacks sent a massive Week 1 statement, downing the Stampeders 32-28. No one saw this coming. Ottawa was down 28-21 going into the fourth quarter, but outscored Bo Levi Mitchell and Co. 11-0 in the final 15 minutes to win 32-28. In the win, Mossis Madu paved the way rushing with his 112 yards. Quarterback Dominique Davis struggled with four interceptions, but made up for it with three rushing scores.

Ottawa will host Saskatchewan (0-1) in Week 2 and have 1.43 moneyline odds to come out on top according to Sports Interaction. In their first game in front of their hometown fans, we like the Redblacks improving their season record to 2-0.

Edmonton and BC ready for what should be a fun battle

It was a tale of two different teams last week for the B.C. Lions and Edmonton Eskimos. Edmonton traveled to Montreal to defeat the Alouettes, while the Lions suffered a tough 33-23 loss to the Blue Bombers. In that defeat, Bo Levi Mitchell had an inconsistent showing, throwing for 275 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Edmonton Eskimos To beat BC Lions Odds

Will BC be able to avenge that season-opening loss with an upset of the Eskimos? The Lions enter Friday’s tilt as four-point underdogs and have 2.40 moneyline odds. Edmonton’s odds are listed at 1.52. Though this one should come down to a late score, we’ll take the Eskimos to pull out the victory.


Toronto looking to kickoff its season with an upset win over Hamilton

With nine teams in the CFL, one unlucky team had to sit out the Week 1 action. That team was Toronto, but the franchise is now set to officially start its regular season with a home again against Hamilton. The Argonauts are 3.5-point underdogs, with 2.41 moneyline odds.

The Tiger-Cats beat Saskatchewan 23-17 last week and hold 1.59 odds to take down Toronto. QB Jeremiah Masoli threw for 169 yards and one touchdown in the victory. Though it won’t be easy, Hamilton has a great chance of starting the year a perfect 2-0. They’ll get it done.

Week 1 picks

Edmonton expected to dismantle Montreal in Week 1

Unfortunately for Alouettes followers, 2019 figures to be a down year. To make things worse, the season begins with a road matchup against the Edmonton Eskimos, a group with a new identity in 2019.

New QB Trevor Harris is looking for a win in his Eskimos debut after throwing for 5,116 yards for Ottawa last season. Edmonton is a 10-point favorite, with 1.91 odds to cover the spread. They’ll get it done.

The defending champs are back in business

How will Bo Levi Mitchell and the Calgary Stampeders follow up their 2018 Grey Cup title? While many have predicted the team to go back-to-back, their focus is on a Week 1 tilt with Ottawa. Calgary enters Saturday night’s meeting as 8-point favorites, with Sports Interaction giving out 1.91 odds.

Calgary Stampeders To cover the spread against Ottawa

Though Calgary lost a good amount of players, the nucleus of the team is still there. That spells trouble for Ottawa. The Stampeders should cruise to a comfortable win and cover the spread.


Winnipeg and B.C. ready to meet up in the game of the week

Get your popcorn ready, folks. The biggest meeting of the weekend is no doubt the Blue Bombers on the road against the Lions. QB Mike Reilly will be making his debut for B.C., while Winnipeg’s Matt Nichols is hoping to build off his 3,146-yard season in 2018.

Sports Interaction has Winnipeg as 2-point underdogs, with 2.10 moneyline odds (B.C. at 1.76). We’re smelling a road upset, though, so we’ll take Winnipeg to come out on top.

Preseason Week 3 Picks & Predictions

It’s here, Canadian Football League followers. After a long offseason, the 2019 regular campaign is set to start next Thursday night with a showdown between Saskatchewan and Hamilton. First, though, team’s will wrap up preseason play this week.

We’ve got three games on Thursday night and one battle coming on Friday between the defending champion Calgary Stampeders and the BC Lions, a team expected to make plenty of noise this summer and throughout the fall.

Which teams will come out on top heading into Week 1? We break down each game and provide our picks for the winners in this preview.


Hamilton Tiger-Cats set to host Toronto

Kicking off the Week 3 preseason action will be a contest between the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Toronto Argonauts.

This season is expected to be another difficult one for Toronto, as they have 16.00 odds to win this year’s Gray Cup. The Argonauts did dismantle Montreal 45-20 in a Week 2 preseason matchup, though.

As for the home team, the Tiger-Cats beat Ottawa 25-21 in their lone preseason game. Will they make it back-to-back wins on Thursday night in front of their home fans? We think so, which is why we’ll give them the slight edge to pull out the victory.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats To Beat Toronto Argonauts Odds

Montreal hoping to stun Ottawa leading up to Week 1

There’s no need to beat around the bush: Montreal enters the new season full of question marks and not a whole lot of confidence.

Sports Interaction has them with the worst odds to win the Gray Cup at 20.00. Though Ottawa is at 10.00, this still makes them big-time favorites for Thursday night’s meeting between the two teams.

Ottawa RedBlacks To Beat Montreal Alouettes Odds

Ottawa lost last weekend to Hamilton, while Montreal were destroyed by Toronto 45-20. Unfortunately for Alouettes fans, another lopsided loss is expected this week. Ottawa may not be a Gray Cup contender this year, but they have the pieces to have no trouble beating Montreal on the road. They’re the easy pick.


Winnipeg hoping to make statement in last preseason game

When Winnipeg and Saskatchewan meet on Thursday evening, it will no doubt be an opportunity for the Blue Bombers to remind CFL fans they’re ready to make serious noise this season.

While many expect Calgary, BC and Ottawa to be the cream of the crop, Winnipeg may just be ready to stun some people come next fall.

What better way to enter the new season, which is full of hope, than to close the preseason with a win at Saskatchewan? Head coach Mike O’Shea will have his guys ready from the opening whistle, that’s a given. Take the Blue Bombers in this one.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers To Beat Saskatchwean Odds

Will this end up being a preview of the 2019 Grey Cup?

The biggest game of the week is 100 percent Friday’s tilt between the Calgary Stampeders and BC Lions. Many are calling this a preview of the 2019 championship, as the two powerhouses are the favorites to meet for the Grey Cup this fall.

Calgary quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell is coming off a championship/All-Star season. He wants his unit to be firing on all cylinders before they officially kickoff the new year.

As for BC, they’ll want to land an early blow on the defending champs. It’ll be a close one, but Calgary will prove to be too much late in the game to earn the victory.

CFL Week 2 preseason highlights

Preseason Week 2 Picks & Predictions

On Thursday night, the Montreal Alouettes and Toronto Argonauts will face off in a preseason showdown featuring two bottom-feeders in the CFL. Big things aren't expected from either team this season, as Montreal's odds to win the Grey Cup are at 19.00 and Toronto's are at 16.00.

Quarterback James Franklin will lead the Argos' offense. He threw for 2,034 yards last season, and sits at the top of the QB depth chart. Though head coach Corey Chamblin said all six of his QBs will see action, look for Franklin to take advantage of a weak Montreal defense early. This is a game Toronto should win, making them our pick.

When you remember we play Thursday.

Then looking ahead to Friday, there will be two preseason games for CFL followers to enjoy. The first game will kickoff between Edmonton and Winnipeg. This is a game the Blue Bombers should come out on top of. They enter the season hoping to make a postseason push behind the arm on Matt Nichols. Edmonton did win its Week 1 preseason game against the mighty BC Lions, who rested a majority of their players. Despite that victory, look for the Blue Bombers to leave the stadium on top.

Following the Edmonton-Winnipeg showdown, get your televisions ready to see your first glimpe of the 2019 Calgary Stampeders. After winning the 2018 Grey Cup, the team enters the new season as the favorites to win it all once again.

Calgary Stampeders to beat Saskatchewan Roughriders Odds

They'll face Saskatchewan on Friday, with Bo Levi Mitchell ready to get his campaign underway. He's not expected to play more than a couple of series, but that won't prevent the Stampeders from taking down Saskatchewan.

Last but not least, Ottawa will host Hamilton on Saturday night. The RedBlacks are coming off a memorable 2018, which of course ended with a tough loss to Calgary in the Grey Cup. They've got high expectations once again and will hope to bring home a win in front of their fans against the Tiger-Cats. This game should be pretty even, but we'll give Ottawa the slight edge to earn the victory.

Week 1 Picks & Predictions

The wait is officially over for Canadian Football League fans. After a long offseason, Week 1 of the regular season is set to kickoff on Thursday night. In total, there will be four exciting matchups to check out this week/weekend.

For the Calgary Stampeders, they’ll look to follow up their 2018 Grey Cup championship with a Week 1 win at home against the Ottawa Redblacks, a game they’re big favorites for. Which other teams are expected to win their season debuts? We take a look at that in this preview.


Saskatchewan and Hamilton set to start the year on Thursday night

The CFL campaign will begin with a showdown between the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Saskatchewan Roughriders. Hamilton begins life without head coach June Jones, who left the team for the XFL.

New coach Orlondo Steinauer and his guys have 1.65 moneyline odds per Sports Interaction to win this one. With quarterback Jeremiah Masoli leading a powerful offense, we like Hamilton to come away with a close win.
