Well that was a much better week for us this week with the tips. We went 2-1 to snap our losing streak.
Our first win was the Blue Bombers +1.5 against the Redblacks. The Bombers won 40-32 in overtime. Ottawa scored two touchdowns with less than 4 minutes remaining in the game, the 2nd they converted on their 2 point try, to tie it and force OT. But Winnipeg scored to win it.
Our second win was the Roughriders -3.5 against the Eskimos. The Riders won the game and covered the spread 19-12. The Riders Willie Jefferson intercepted a throw and returned it for a touchdown in the 4th to give them the lead and they held on for the win.
Our loss of the week was the Lions -7 against the Argonauts. The Lions won but only by 3 26-23. This game looked like we were going to win it but the Argos made a huge push at the end scoring 2 TDs with less than 3 minutes left to keep it close.
The final game of the weekend was the Stampeders vs the Alouettes. The Stamps were -12.5 favorites here and it’s a good thing we avoided this game as Calgary won but only by 6 points 12-6.
Alright here we are at week 18 so let’s go.
Tiger-Cats vs Argonauts Betting Tips
Hamilton has a chance to move into a tie with first place Ottawa with a win in this game. Despite not playing last week thanks to having a bye week the Ticats clinched a playoff spot with the Alouettes losing. The Argonauts were eliminated from the playoffs with their loss last week. They became the first team since the 2006 Eskimos to be eliminated from the playoffs the season after winning the Grey Cup
The Ticats have won 3 of the last 4 games against the Argos, including three this season, and I expect that trend to continue in this one with a chance at first place on the line.
Roughriders vs Blue Bombers Betting Tips
This is going to be a great game between the #2 and #3 teams in the West Division. Both teams come into this game on 3 game win streaks. The Riders have won the first two meetings against the Bombers this season.
With the success that the Riders have had on the road versus the record the Bombers have at home I like the Riders chances. And when they are getting points in what’s sure to be a fairly close game then that makes up my mind for me
Redblacks vs Eskimos Betting Tips
Ottawa is in 1st place in the East but just barely with the Ticats only 2 points back. They need to win against struggling teams like the Eskies when they play them and keep ahead of the pack
These teams played each other 3 weeks ago and it was Ottawa winning that game. The Eskimos have lost their last 3 games and sit in last place in the West. I’m going to go with the Redblacks here and they are getting points too.
Lions vs Stampeders Betting Tips
This is yet another game where the Stamps are huge favorites. For this one they are -10.5. After last weeks game against Montreal where they just barely beat them I’m not confident enough in either and I’m going to avoid tipping this game.
