CFL Picks Week 13

CFL Picks Week 13
Not letting our dreary Week 11 Canadian Football League results get us down, we rebounded with a 3-1 mark against the spread and straight during Week 12 action. Lucky CFL Week 13 is upon and it’s an all-weekend slate that opens with Saskatchewan visiting Hamilton at 7:00 PM ET on September 15, 2017, at Tim Hortons Field. Playoff positioning is on the line so let’s get to our predictions.

CFL Football Games This Week

If the CFL was afraid of the NFL Week 2 Thursday Night Houston versus Cincinnati clash, hindsight shows they had little to fear as the Texans beat the Bengals 13-9 in a contest that only the players Mom’s could love. For a second straight week, the CFL didn’t schedule a Thursday contest as the ‘Riders vs Tiger-Cats Friday Night fight will be followed by a Saturday doubleheader and a Sunday matinee match. Edmonton vs Toronto at 4:00 PM ET and BC visiting Calgary at 7:00 PM ET is the double-dip while Montreal hosts Ottawa at 1:00 PM on Sunday to close out the Week 13 slate.

Taking a look at the CFL standings, the West continues to shine as they have a 35-18-1 record compared to the 13-30-1 mark posted by the weak-sister squads in the East. Calgary leads the way as the Stampeders (9-1-1) have won seven straight and they have the CFL’s best defense. It’s not even close as Calgary is giving up 19 PPG compared to second best Toronto who have allowed 25.2 PPG. Winnipeg, steadily moving towards the second chalk spot on our Grey Cup futures board, is the highest scoring CFL squad as the Blue Bombers (8-3-0) have posted 34.5 points per game. 

CFL Predictions Today and Week 12 Review

Padding our bankroll, our Week 12 predictions opened with a pair of easy wins as the Lions and Blue Bombers rolled to 41-18 and 48-28 victories over the Alouettes and Roughriders respectively. We expected Hamilton would keep their clash with Ottawa close but the Tiger-Cats 26-22 win gave us our lone straight up loss. Calgary continues to stymie us as the Stamps were sloppy during their 25-22 win in Edmonton and failed cover the -6 (-110) ATS price at the Bet365 sportsbook. With eight weeks left on the 2017 CFL schedule - we are fairly satisfied with our overall record below.

CSB Money Line & ATS Week 12 Results3-1-0 and 3-1-0 Overall: 34-13-1 and 26-21-2

  • Saskatchewan at Hamilton Pick: Roughriders -4.5 (-105) ATS at William Hill

Bottom feeders open the CFL Week 13 slate as Saskatchewan (5-5-0) visits Hamilton (2-8-0) in a key contest for both teams. The ‘Riders have moved to within two points of fourth place BC in the West while the Tiger-Cats have won two in a row and trail Toronto by four points in the “race” for the final playoff spot in the East. That said, the Cats are still Kittens while the Roughriders are a team on the rise with a 3-1 recent record. William Hill bookmakers second those emotions as the ‘Riders are -4.5 (-105) road chalk for their Steel City clash. Lay the line and side with Saskatchewan here.

Final Score: Saskatchewan Roughriders 27-19

  • Edmonton at Toronto Pick: Eskimos -2.5 (-105) ATS at Bodog

Slumping squads square off in the “Center of the Universe” as Toronto (4-7-0) hosts Edmonton (7-4-0) in a East vs West contest. The Eskimos have lost four straight while the Argos have dropped five of six contests. The Esks have won three straight vs the Boatmen, by a 125-55 combined count, including a 46-23 victory in Toronto last August. Injuries have caught up to Edmonton but, as is evident by their -2.5 (-105) road favorite point spread at Bodog, the Eskimos are the better team in this battle. Feeling this line should be larger – we are backing Edmonton on the road in Toronto.

Final Score: Toronto Argonauts 34-26

  • British Columbia at Calgary Pick: Lions + 9 (-110) ATS at Bet365

We have had a difficult time with our Calgary ATS picks as we are 3-8-0 against the spread – while our 8-2-1 straight up mark is a minor consolation prize. Miscues kept the Stampeders (9-1-1) from covering the -6 (-110) line vs Edmonton last week. After three straight loses, a Week 11 Bye helped British Columbia (6-5-0) as the Lions mauled Montreal 41-18 during Week 12 action. Often injured BC pivot Travis Lulay is out for the season so the Lions are hoping QB Jon Jennings can return to his 2016 form. Bet365 linemakers have posted the Stamps as -9 (-110) home chalk – BC keeps it close.

Final Score: Calgary Stampeders 27-13

Another matchup of mediocre squads closes Week 13 action as Ottawa is in Montreal for the second time in three weeks. The Redblacks ripped the Alouettes 32-4 in the first meeting but the defending Grey Cup Champs are now without starting QB Trevor Harris who is out 2-6 weeks with a shoulder injury. Montreal has lost four straight (145-59) and their once stout defense is now mirroring the struggles the Alouettes are experiencing on offense. Drew Tate is a capable backup pivot so we’ll give up the SportsInteraction -2 (-110) ATS line and roll with the Redblacks.

Final Score: Ottawa Redblacks 29-11

Grey Cup postseason excitement is picking up steam but the CFL is far from the only game in town these days. As Fantasy Football fans can attest to, Week 1 of the NFL season fell below the hype as studs morphed into duds and blowouts were plentiful. If the Thursday Night snoozer is an indicator, sports fans may want to turn to US College football as an entertaining alternative. As illustrated on our NCAAF futures board, things shifted considerably in the National Championship chase. Don’t forget, we post a FREE two-team parlay prediction along with our weekly futures odds update.

Major League Baseball playoff battles are also front and center this weekend. With 18 days left on the slate – the Washington Nationals, Cleveland Indians and Los Angeles Dodgers own three of the ten MLB playoff invitations. Houston will be joining them shortly but the other positions are up for grabs. With five regular season weeks left – the race to the MLS Cup is also in full flight. Thanks to a 17-3-8 record, Toronto FC is the first team in the East playoff pool while Vancouver is currently the West front-runner. These top bookmakers deliver this hot action, and more, 24/7 all year!
