It finally freaking happens – the Roughriders get a win! They dominated the Blue Bombers in a 37-19 strong performance – and the big question is this week. Will the Blue Bombers get revenge back in Winnipeg? Should be a good gmae.
It was a bad week for the tips as we went 1-3 but we’re still up for the season and that’s the main thing. We really thought Bombers +3.5 was a gift but alas it was not to be.
Our lone win was the Calgary Stampders who defeated the Edmonton Eskimos 16-7. A lot of people expected a shootout for that one but it didn’t happen.
One interesting thing is we talked to our friends at Sports Interaction. They said that in Week 10, they got a TON of action from people betting the Roughriders to beat the REDBLACKS. Like they were absolutely stunned at the action – only theory there is casual bettors who don’t know the REDBLACKS are actually better this season.
Anyway it scared people off and the Roughriders got no action this week – just the opposite. Oops.
Alrighty let’s get to the Week 12 CFL Betting Tips. The schedule is as follows:
Friday, September 11th: Tiger Cats @ Argonauts, 7:30pm.
Saturday, September 12th: Roughriders @ Blue Bombers, 6:30pm. Stampeders @ Eskimos. 9:30pm.
Sunday, September 13th: REDBLACKS @ Lions, 4pm.
All times in EST. Let’s get to the tips:
Tiger Cats vs Argonauts Betting Tips:
Last week, the Tiger-Cats absolutely dominated Toronto but will it be different now they are on the road? The sportsbooks think it will be a tighter game with the Tiger-Cats at just -3.5.
We also believe it will be a tighter game – but that the Tiger-Cats will be the victorious team. They are top of the East for a reason and that win over the Argonauts just cements their status. The Argonauts are defeated at home – but we expect that to end this week.
Roughriders vs Blue Bombers Betting Tips:
The Blue Bombers underdogs going into this one at +1. Not really a surprise. They looked rather woeful against the Roughriders. But the Roughriders are on the road where they are 0-4. It’s a tight one. We’d stay away from who is going to win this one.
Instead we’d recommend the over. Both teams are sloppy as hell – especially when it comes to defense. The only concern with the over is whether the Blue Bombers offense can keep going. They’re the lowest scoring team in the CFL but we think it will just scrape Over 50.5 at Bovada for Americans and Sports Interaction for everyone else.
Stampeders vs Eskimos Betting Tips:
Can Edmonton bounce back after last week? Sports Interaction have them at -1 and we have to go with that.
Stampeders are a beast at home but so are Edmonton with a 4-1-0 record. We know it’s been 4 years since the Eskimos beat the Stampeders but we are feeling good about them this week. We’ll take the Eskimos -1 in this one.
REDBLACKS vs Lions Betting Tips:
The REDBLACKS had the week off last week as B.C. beat the Alouettes. These two teams played early in the season when the REDBLACKS ran out 2-16 winners.
Both teams are competitive and know how to score. Coming off their break, the BC Lions are looking solid and know this is a great opportunity to close the gap between either the Stampeders or the Eskimos.
Lions are just -4 favourites and we think that’s great. We were expecting -7 and we’ll be over that all day.
