It was a 2-2 week last week with the CFL Tips.

The week started off with a nice and easy win. We had the Alouettes vs Blue Bombers over 51 and both teams came close to putting that number up on their own. It was a 41-40 finish to easily go over.

We thought that would be our easiest pick of the week but that one was reserved for the Stampeders vs Tiger Cats game. The Stamps were -12.5 and we took them to cover and blow out the Cats. That happened in spectacular fashion as the Stampeders won 60-1.

Amazing to think Hamilton were highly favoured at the beginning of the season. What a mess of a team.

We had the Lions +3 in one that we weren’t too sure about. Unfortunately we pulled the trigger and the Eskimos beat them convincingly.

We also had Argonauts +2.5. They’re a very up and down team but we thought they could do the business against Sask. Didn’t happen and they lost and made it a 2-2 week.

We move onto Week 7 in the CFL. The East is already looking like it did last year – no team with a winning freaking record. The Argos are best with a .500 record. The West has 4 teams with a winning record with the Eskimos hoping to get a good convincing win over Hamilton this week.

Lets get to it:

Stampeders vs Argonauts Betting Tips:

Following on from our first over pick of the season last week, I’m going to back the over in this one again.

The Stampeders are such a deep team receiver wise even though Jordan picked up that injury. They’ve got so many options.

These are two strong offensive teams. Stampeders defense has been very solid the last two games however I like the Argonauts to give them a battle. Even when they lose Toronto are very competitive. I’m taking Over 55.5 Points.

Blue Bombers vs Redblacks Betting Tips:

This should be a tight game for sure – Ottawa aren’t performing too well right now but they’re still a solid team and go into this one as the slight favourites.

However in a game which I feel is close I’ll go with the Blue Bombers +2.5. Winnipeg have won both their East games this season so far in tight ones. The West is going to be ridiculously stacked so these are the games they’ll be extra motivated for.

Tiger-Cats vs Eskimos Betting Tips:

It’s absoloutely amazing how bad Hamilton are at the moment. Edmonton are going to be motivated here and will want to keep their good run going.

I just can’t see Hamilton bouncing back strong. Edmonton have yet to cover by 2 touchdowns this season and the two did have a tight 31-28 game 2 week sago however I’m going to take Eskimos -14.

Roughriders vs Lions Betting Tips:

This is an iffy one. I’m not betting it this week. Saskatchewan looked more like the team they should be last week. However I’m not convinced by them. Lions will be out looking for a win to keep them battling in the West so I’m refraining from a bet here.
