First off I hope you got to watch the Blue Jays and their game 5 against the Rangers.  This was an unreal game and our Blue Jays came away with the win and move onto the ALCS against the Royals.  Go Jays Go!!!

Rough week last week as we went winless.

The Ticats beat the Roughriders 30-15.  They put up 20 unanswered points and cruised to the win.  With the win they remain atop the East Standings tied with the Argos.

The Eskimos beat the Stampeders 15-11 and with the win Edmonton is now tied with Calgary for 1st place in the West and the league. 

The Blue Bombers beat the Lions 29-26 in a close one. Cameron Marshall kicked a 41 yard field goal as time expired to win this one for the Bombers.  These teams are tied for 3rd in the West with the Lions having a game in hand.

The last game of the weekend was the Argos beating the Alouettes 25-17. With the win the Argos ate tied for first place in the East Division with the Collaros-less Tiger-Cats.

Ok let’s get to the CFL Week 17 Tips.  But first here’s the schedule.

Friday, October 16th Blue Bombers vs Redblacks
Saturday, October 17th Stampeders vs Argonauts, Lions vs Eskimos
Sunday, October 18th  Tiger-Cats vs Alouettes

Blue Bombers vs Redblacks Betting Tips

Ottawa needs this game big time.  They’re only 2 points behind the Ticats and Argos for 1st place in the East.  The Bombers themselves need to win this one but Burris and the Redblacks are at home and are the better team.

Redblacks -4 for 1.91 at

Stampeders vs Argonauts Betting Tips

A big game here with both of these teams tied for 1st in their divisions.

Toronto is playing their 3rd game in 11 days and their 2nd in only 5 days so you have to think that fatigue will play a role in this game.  But they’re on a 3 game win streak and have looked impressive of late.   This is a tough game to call.

Argonauts win

Lions vs Eskimos Betting Tips

Big game for the Eskimos.  They’re tied with Calgary and can’t afford any losses or they drop to second place.  The Lions are tied with the Bombers heading into this game  and the Bombers hold the tiebreaker but B.C has an extra game left.

I think Edmonton wins this game but the 9 point spread scares me so I’m going with the Lions +9

Tiger-Cats vs Alouettes Betting Tips

Both of these teams are having huge issues at the qb position.  But for one team the games mean a lot more than the other.  Montreal is in last place and are ahead of only the Riders in the league while Hamilton is fighting for top spot in the East with the Argos but are without Collaros.  Since they have been without Collaros, the Ticats are 1-2 with their win coming against the Roughriders.

Montreal has beaten Hamilton in both games they have played this season so I gotta go with the Alouettes at Bovada
