Not the best week ever but it was better than a losing week as we went 2-2.
We had the Ticats -3 against the Alouettes but Montreal came away with the 17-13 win. Ticats QB Zachary Collaros had a rough outing. He went 27-42 for 296 yards a TD and 3 interceptions. This game only had 1 TD for each team and the kicking units made up the rest of the points.
We won our tip of the Eskimos -3.5 against the Redblacks as Edmonton won again against Ottawa 23-12. Eskimos QB Matt Nicols didn’t have a great outing, 18-33 and 3 picks, but Edmonton still picked up the win thanks to their D.
We had the Riders -3.5 and their bad start to the season got even worse when they took the 27-24 loss to the B.C Lions to open up the 2015 season 0-4 The Lions were up 20-11 heading into the 4th quarter and they opened the 4th with a TD. The Riders ended the game by kicking two field goals and rushing a TD but it wasn’t enough.
Last we had the Blue Bombers +9 against the Stampeders. The Stamps won 26-25 so we won. I figured this game would be close but not 1 point. Stamps are off to a 3-1 start but still haven’t blown a team away.
Ok we are already into week 5. Let’s have a winning week this week. Here’s how the schedule looks.
Friday, July 24th Stampeders vs Redblacks @ 7:00pm, Argonauts vs Lions @ 10:00pm
Saturday, July 25th Blue Bombers vs Eskimos @ 7:00 pm
Sunday, July 26th Tiger-Cats vs Roughriders @ 7:00 pm
Stampeders vs Redblacks Betting Tips
Not sure how the Redblacks will do. They started out the season with two wins only to lose their next two games to Edmonton.
Calgary is 3-0 at home but are still looking for their first road win of the season and I think they pick it up in this one.
Stamps – 5.5 for 1.91 odds
Argonauts vs Lions Betting Tips
Lions come into this one on a 2 game win streak after beating the Riders two in a row. The Argos had a bye last week after taking the 25-20 loss to the Stamps in week 3.
These teams have the same record of 2-1. The Lions beat the Riders twice and lost to the Redblacks, Argos beat the Riders and Eskimos and lost to the Stampeders.
Argos +3 for 1.91
Blue Bombers vs Eskimos Betting Tips
Eskimos are coming off of back-to-back wins over Ottawa. The Bombers are fresh off their 1 point loss to Calgary. They did take a pounding by the Ticats in week 2 but have still managed to go 2-2 on the season.
Edmonton is on a 2 game win streak after opening up the season with a loss in week 1 then having a bye in week 2. The spread for this game is Edmonton -6. Will this be yet another close game for Winnipeg?
Bombers +6 For 1.91
Tiger-Cats vs Roughriders Betting Tips
I would like to think that the Riders pick up their first win of the season in this one at home. They are taking on the Ticats who have also had a rough start to the season going 1-2 over their three games. The Riders 4 losses have been close: week 1 by 4 to the Bombers, week 2 in OT to the Argos, week 3 in OT to the Lions and week 4 by 3 points again to the Lions.
I have tipped the Riders in 3 of their 4 games. They’re due for a win so I’ll go with them again.
Riders -1 For 1.91
