Managed to go 2-2 for week 6. 

We had the Bombers +4 against the Lions but the Bombers didn’t need the 4 points with the 23-13 win. The Lions had a 7-0 lead at the end of the 1st quarter and a 10-7 lead going into the 3rd. But the Bombers put up 10 in the 3rd and 6 in the 4th while holding the Lions to a FG in the 4th for the win.

Why do I keep taking the Riders?  I thought that this would be ok when they got 10 points but nope.  Eskimos handled them with ease winning 30-5.  They scored 10 in the first , 13 in the 3rd and added 7 in the 4th. 

Next we took the Alouettes +4.5 against the Stampeders.  The Stamps won 25-22 but we won thanks to the 4.5.  Montreal jumped out to a 17-0 lead after the 1st but the Stamps scored 17 of their own in the second. 

Finally I tipped the Argos +4 vs the Tiger-Cats.  Well Hamilton took advantage of their home opener and handled the Argos with ease winning the game 34 -18. 

Ok here’s the schedule for week 7

Thursday, August 6th Eskimos vs Lions @ 1:00pm
Friday, August 7th Alouettes vs Redblacks @ 7:30pm
Saturday, August 8th Roughriders vs Argonauts 7:00pm
Sunday, August 9th Blue Bombers vs Tiger-Cats @ 5:00pm

Eskimos vs Lions Betting Tips

Edmonton comes into this game on fire.  They have won 4 straight games and now get to take on a Lions team who have lost two in a row. 

The problem with the Lions is that they picked up both of their wins in back to back games against the Riders.  The same Riders team who hasn’t won a game yet this season. 
A hot team with the best D in the league against the cold Lions?

Eskimos for 1.91 at Bovada

Alouettes vs Redblacks Betting Tips

The East standings are a logjam.  There are 3 teams tied for 1st with a  3-2 record: the Ticats, Redblacks and the Argonauts.  In 4th are the Alouettes with a 2-3 record.

Ottawa had a bye last week so they have had time to rest and study the Als.  Montreal took the tough 25-22 loss to Calgary last week.  These teams played in week 1 with the Redblacks winning 20-16.  I like Montreal to pick up the win in this one and even the season series at a game a piece

Alouettes Win for 1.91

Roughriders vs Argonauts Betting Tips

Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me 4 times and I’m an idiot.  I have backed the Riders 4 times this year and as their record tells you, I have lost those 4. 

Well I’m going with the Argos in this one.  The spread is Argos +10.  I’m a little nervous about 10 points but the Riders have burnt me enough already this season.

If you’re confident in the Argos pounding the Riders then take Argos +10 for 2.00 at Bovada.  I personally can’t pull the trigger on this one.

Blue Bombers vs Tiger-Cats Betting Tips

Hamilton comes into this game on a 2 game win streak and have looked amazing at points during the season.  Winnipeg hasn’t been able to gain any traction yet this year.  They’re 3-3 but their 3 losses came against the #1 & #2 teams in the West and the loser of last year’s Grey Cup, the Ticats. 

The Ticats pounded the Bombers 52-26 back in week 2 are we in for a similar game in this one?

Tiger-Cats -7.5 for 2.05 at Bovada
