CFL Week 19 Predictions

CFL Week 19 Predictions
A slate of matches with serious playoff implications greets bettors at the Bodog and SportsInteraction sportsbooks as we preview and predict the Week 19 CFL schedule. Toronto and Montreal both joined Saskatchewan on the eliminated list once the dust settled following Week 18 action but five squads are ready to square off in important contests this weekend. The betting boards feature two home favourites and two teams that are road chalk in matches that are spread out over three days from October 28 to 30, 2016. Let’s get into the games.

CFL Odds Week 19

Week 19 of the 2016 CFL schedule opens with Edmonton in Hamilton for a match at Tim Hortons Field on Friday at 7:00 PM ET. The CFL Saturday doubleheader features Winnipeg hosting Ottawa at Investors Group Field at 4:00 PM ET prior to British Columbia visiting Saskatchewan at 7:00 PM ET in the final game at historic Mosaic Stadium at Taylor Field in Regina. The weekend wraps up with Calgary attempting to set an all time CFL best ever 16-1-1 record when they battle Montreal at 1:00 PM ET on Sunday at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium. The Toronto Argonauts are on a bye this week. Three games with huge playoff implications, plus one match with a record setting possibility, makes for an intriguing weekend. Here are the LIVE betting odds for the CFL Week 19 schedule.

CFL Week 18 Wagering Recap

Dropping our record to 10-13-1, in this series of Canadian Football League predictions, a 0-4 record on our CFL Week 18 predictions earned us nothing but feathers last weekend. The week opened with the Tiger-Cats winning 39-36 as -3.5 underdogs against the Redblacks. A week after laying a big price (-15) with Calgary, and losing by one point, we took the spread (+17) and lost by a point again as the Stamps rolled the Argonauts 31-13. Our dismal week continued as the Roughriders lost 19-14 as -6.5 point home chalk versus the Alouettes. The final blow was delivered when the Lions, as -2 home favourites, bashed the Eskimos 32-25 at BC Place. Since sports betting will never be an exact science, and two weeks removed from a perfect 4-0 record, we have to take the good with the bad. Let’s bag more good than bad as we dig into the four contests on the Week 19 CFL slate.

Week 19 CFL Predictions

Edmonton Eskimos @ Hamilton Tiger-Cats 2016 CFL Week 19 Prediction


Tim Hortons Field 7:00 PM ET October 28, 2016

Winning 39-36 in Ottawa last week, snapping a three-game losing streak in the process, Hamilton still has their sights sets on winning the CFL East Division. The Tiger-Cats (7-9) trail Ottawa by one point as they host Edmonton (8-8) prior to closing out their season in Montreal. The Redblacks have a tough two-game series against Winnipeg to close out their schedule so the Cats have a legitimate shot at earning a first round bye in the CFL playoffs. The Eskimos put up a dismal effort last week as they fell behind 26-12 in the third quarter versus the Lions before scoring late during a 32-25 loss in Vancouver. Trailing BC and Winnipeg by four points in the West, Edmonton will have to settle for the crossover East Division playoff spot. That means the Esks will visit Hamilton or Ottawa in the first round of the 2016 CFL postseason which adds another blast of intrigue to this matchup. The Cats posted a 37-31 Week 5 win in Oil Country and we see the Eskimos gaining a measure of revenge with a victory in the Steel City. Take Edmonton with +2.5 (-110) points at the Bodog sportsbook.

Ottawa Redblacks @ Winnipeg Blue Bombers CFL 2016 Week 19 Prediction


Investors Group Field 4:00 PM ET October 29, 2016

Fresh off a Week 18 bye, Winnipeg (10-6) controls their postseason destiny and will host the West Semi-Final in two weeks time if they post a pair of wins against Ottawa. It’s been a solid season for the Blue Bombers who were tagged with +1000 Grey Cup Championship price back in June which was second last to the Alouettes +1200 money line. Winnipeg won two straight versus BC (37-35 and 35-32) prior to their bye to take over second place in the West. Ottawa takes another crack at locking down the East after they failed to do so during their 39-39 loss to Hamilton at home last week. The Redblacks have lost three of four contests and they are 1-1 since veteran Henry Burris returned as their starting quarterback. Despite playing a tougher schedule, Winnipeg’s points for and against are slightly better then Ottawa’s numbers. A Bombers win, coupled with a BC loss, gives Winnipeg home field advantage in the West Semi-Final on November 13, 2016. Winners of four of their last five home games, three of which were by at least seven points, we are laying the -5 (-110) spread price at the SportsInteraction online sportsbook and backing the Blue Bombers.

British Columbia Lions @ Saskatchewan Roughriders 2016 CFL Week 19 Prediction


Mosaic Stadium at Taylor Field 7:00 PM ET October 29, 2016

With roots reaching back to the 1900’s, Mosaic Stadium at Taylor Field has been the only home the Saskatchewan Roughriders have known since they formed in 1946. This is the final contest at the old barn as the ‘Riders will move down the street into New Mosaic Stadium to open the 2017 CFL season. A comedy of errors, in a rainy Regina, snapped a four game winning run as Saskatchewan fell 19-14 at home to Montreal last week. BC is looking to spoil the “Farewell to Mosaic” party as they visit the ‘Riders for a second time this season. The Lions (10-6) posted a 40-27 win in the first meeting back in Week 4. Following a pair of close losses to Winnipeg, by a combined five points, British Columbia was impressive during their 32-25 win over the high flying Eskimos at home last weekend. The Lions have to win two in row against the Roughriders and hope Winnipeg loses one of their two battles with Ottawa in order to host the West Semi-Final in two weeks. Facts are facts; Mosaic Stadium is a steaming dump and the players are ecstatic about leaving so we don’t see the “final game” mantra being a motivating factor here. Not thrilled about getting splashed with the extra nickel of juice, we will lay the -3 (-115) ATS odds at Bodog and prowl with the BC Lions.

Calgary Stampeders @ Montreal Alouettes CFL 2016 Week 19 Prediction


Percival Molson Memorial Stadium 1:00 PM ET October 30, 2016

Calgary has been crushing everyone in their path (including us the last two weeks) with 15 straight wins and now they have a chance to make CFL history. Looking to be a tie better than the 16-2 CFL record the Eskimos posted in 1989, the Stampeders will move to 16-1-1 with a win in Montreal on Sunday. The Stamps have motivation to put in a full effort as they will be off for two weeks prior to hosting the West Final. They would also love to steal away a long-standing CFL record from their archrival Northern Alberta neighbours. QB Bo Levi Mitchell played the entire game last week and, unless this match turns into a rout, we expect the same here as he is battling Edmonton QB Mike Reilly for the top passer spot in the CFL. The Alouettes showed heart in Regina last week but they are highly over-matched by the Red & White. As much as Montreal would like to win their final home game of the 2016 CFL season, we don’t see it happening or even being close. We are going to swallow the -10 (-110) line at SportsInteraction and back the Stampeders over the Alouettes.

Montreal Expos Prop Bets: Will Expos Return to MLB By 2022? 
As the 50th anniversary of the Montreal Expos nears, rumors intensify for the return of The ‘Spos to La Belle Province. The first Canadian team in the MLB lost their franchise when the league allowed the team to move to Washington - but baseball never went out of style in Montreal, with exhibition games constantly selling out at the crumbling Olympic Stadium. Stephen Bronfman, son of former Expos owner Charles, remains cautiously optimistic for a new era of Montreal Expos baseball.
