Week 1 is a wrap and it was awesome to see CFL action again.  And what a week it was.

In the rematch of last year’s Grey Cup the Redblacks and the Stamps had a great game that ended in a 31-31 tie.   Funny how the finals needed extra time too.

The Eskimos beat the Lions thanks to a fieldgoal as the time expired for the 30-27 win.

The Roughriders had a chance to win but missed a field goal at the end of the game and the Als held on to win 17-16.

As an Argos fan, I was extremely happy with their performance last week.  Ricky Ray threw for 506 yards and they beat the Ticats 32-15.  With all of the moves the Argos made to their front office it’s still Ricky Ray’s team

Week 2 should also be a good one with some good matchups taking place including another meeting of the Redblacks and Stampeders.

Redblacks vs Stampeders Betting Tips

No matter who wins this game it’s sure to be a great one.

The last 2 times these teams have played they have needed OT.  With the spread being 8 points I have to think that this game should follow the trend and stay close.  So I’m going with Ottawa to keep the game within the 8 points.  If they can do that or win the game then we win the bet

Redblacks +8

Lions vs Argonauts Betting Tips

The Lions trailed the Eskimos for most of the game and it wasn’t exactly a good way to open up the season for them.  I’m sure they will look better in this game.

The Argos looked so good last week that I feel like I have to back them until they show me otherwise.  Ricky Ray looked incredible so I expect him to have another big game.

Argos -1.5

Alouettes vs Eskimos Betting Tips

Both of these teams come into this game after picking up a win in week 1.  For the Eskimos though they lost star linebacker J.C Sherritt for the season with an Achilles injury further depleting their linebacker depth with Greenwood already out.

I like the Eskies to win this game but I’m not sure that they can cover the spread.  So with that being said I’m going to take Montreal with the points.

Alouettes +8.5

Blue Bombers vs Roughriders Betting Tips

This will be the Blue Bombers first game of the season.  The Riders lost a close one in week 1.

With so little to go on for this game we will have to look back to last season.

The Blue Bombers beat the Roughriders twice last season.  The spread makes this game an even pick so I’ll go with the Bombers to win.

Bombers -1
