We had the Stamps -5.5 against the Redblacks but Ottawa came away with 29-26 OT win. Big games from Redblacks QB Burris, 28-43 for 389 yards and 3 TDs, and wide receiver Chris Williams 7 catches for 162 yards and a TD.
We had the Argos +3 against the Lions and they won 30-27. The Lions jumped out to a 14-0 lead after the first quarter and lead 21-7 at the half. But Toronto came back to win in the second half.
I thought that Winnipeg would be able to keep their game close against the Eskimos and I tipped them +6. But Edmonton held Winnipeg to a FG in the first quarter and pounded the Bombers 32-3.
Our last tip of the week was yet again for the Riders -1 at home. And yet again the Riders took the loss. The Riders were up 21-17 heading into the 4th but Hamilton went and put up 14 points in the final quarter for the 31-21 win.

Lions vs Blue Bombers Betting Tips
Both teams are looking to forget their loss from last week. The Lions taking the 3 point loss to the Argos thanks to a late FG and the Bombers getting pounded by the Eskies where they only managed a FG.
I expect the Bombers to come out in this one with a much better effort. Not sure if they pick up the win but I think they keep it close.
Roughriders vs Eskimos Betting Tips
Things can’t get any worse for the Riders. They have now opened up the season 0-5 and now get to go to Edmonton to take on the West leading Eskimos.
I really shouldn’t tip the Riders again. They’re due for a win and that’s obvious but can they do it against the strong Eskies? With the exception of last weeks loss by 10 to the Ticats, the Riders have managed to keep games close.
Alouettes vs Stampeders
A rematch from week 2 when the Als beat the Stamps 29-11. Montreal had last week off so they have spent the week studying the Stamps. Calgary is coming off of their 29-26 OT loss to Ottawa and would love to not only avoid a their first losing streak of the season but to get some revenge against the Als. But how will Calgary do without Cornish?
Alouettes +4.5 for 1.91
Argonauts vs Tiger-Cats Betting Tips
It’s already week 6 and it’s finally time for the Ticats to play at home. They have gone 2-2 so far this season. But they now get to host the East leading Argos.
This is going to be a great game and it could go either way. Having a tough time picking a winner
