It was a okay week for us last week as Graeme went 1-1 with the tips.
We had the Bombers -8 against the Riders and they won 31-13. They win guaranteed them a home playoff game which is huge in the playoffs. The Riders scored first kicking a field goal but the Bombers responded with 2 touchdowns and a field goal to put it away before half time leading 17-3.
We also had the Elks +3.5 against the Alouettes but the Alouettes won 25-18. The Elks looked good in this game but couldn’t pick up the win. Als LB Tyrice Beverette picked off a ball in the 4th and returned it 105 yards for the pick 6 which killed our tip.
The Lions scored 1st, never trailed and beat the Redblacks 34-19. This was a big win for the Lions. They were 7 point favourites heading into this game and it opened at 9.5. The win has them still in 2nd place in the West
The Stamps kicked the shit out of the Argos holding them to two singles for the game and won 29-2. They had 3 interceptions and returned one for a score. The win kept them in 3rd with 20 points and a 10-5 record. The Lions are ahead of them with 20 points but have played one less game going 10-4.
We are 4 weeks away from the end of the season.
Roughriders vs Tiger-Cats Betting Tips
The Riders are trying to stay ahead of the Ticats and Redblacks to clinch a crossover spot.
The Ticats need to win this game and then they play the Stamps and finish the season with a home and home series with the last place Redblacks. So to say this game is crucial would be a huge understatement.
They are at home and their season is on the line. I feel like the Ticats have to go all out in this game to stand any chance and they can’t let the Riders gain ground on them.
Lions vs Argonauts Betting Tips
Both teams clinched a playoff spot back in week 16.
The Argos will be anxious to get back on the field to try and get back in the win column after taking a loss last week which snapped their win streak at 4.
The Lions still have a shot at taking 1st place in the West but they need the wins to keep coming for that to happen.
After their showing last week I don’t have a lot of confidence in the Argos. And with the Lions having a shot at winning the West and needing any and all points they can get I have to back them to win here.
Elks vs Blue Bombers Betting Tips
The Elks will be eliminated if they lose or the Roughriders win.
The Bombers are still looking to lock up first place in the West. They are close as they have 26 points but the Lions and the Stamps are there with 20 points each.
The spread for this game is way to much for me to even think about it. The line is Bombers -13. I think they win but to win by almost 2 touchdowns is a statement. I’m happy to skip this one.
RedBlacks vs Alouettes Betting Tips
The Alouettes can clinch a playoff spot if they can win this game. After last week’s big win, and the pick-six from Beverette which they will use as motivation going forward, the Als are at .500 for the 1st time this season.
The Redblacks have a slim shot at a playoff spot but it’s going to be tough for them. They just fired their head coach and will be taking on teams fighting for the postseason.
I want to take the Als to win here but they have played the Redblacks 3 times and lost the last game against them in week 13. With the spread Als -6.5 I can’t pull the trigger.
