|Hamilton v. Toronto UNDER 45
|60 h 26 m
*3 Star Play Under* The Hamilton Tiger Cats and Toronto Argonauts square off in the playoffs on Sunday in Toronto. These two teams know each other very well. This is the most important game between these two in quite some time. Which team will win and move on to the Grey Cup?
The weather should play a factor here. Winds of 15 mph with snow changing to rain are forecast for this game. That is enough weather to really make a difference. It should make both teams more conservative. The two passing attacks have been inconsistent of late anyways, and now the weather will make it tougher.
Both teams have a good pass rush and Oakman could dominate on the defensive front for Toronto.
The last 3 games for Hamilton have finished with totals of: 35, 27, and 43 points.
The last 3 games for Toronto have finished with totals of: 43, 43, and 20 points.
Take the under here.
|Winnipeg +4 v. Ottawa
|8 h 36 m
*3 Star CFL Friday Night CASH* The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are one of the more talented teams in the CFL. Winnipeg has a bunch of offensive weapons, and their defensive line is a strength as well.
While Ottawa has won their first couple, they play in the weaker side of the CFL, and their defense is definitely a big question mark for me.
Road dogs have fared well in the CFL in the long run early in the season. I think Winnipeg is the better team, so I'll grab the points here.
|Edmonton v. Winnipeg UNDER 58.5
|19 h 54 m
*4 Star Play Under* The over is 6-1 in the CFL so far this year. That has the oddsmakers and bettors overreacting here. This total has moved too high.
It is certainly early in the season, but these are the 1st and 2nd ranked defenses in the CFL in yards allowed per game so far this year. Both of these defenses should be improved from last year.
Early in the year in the CFL, the under has generally done well. That has especially been the case when the total is set at a high level. Since 2005- in game number 1 through 6 of the season with a total of 53.5 or higher, the under is an impressive 72-46 (61%). Conference games in this same time frame with a total of 52.5 or higher are 56-26 (68.3%) to the under. This game meets both of these systems.
Take the under.
|Montreal v. Toronto UNDER 50
|21 h 60 m
*4 Star Play Under* Montreal goes to Toronto in a CFL showdown set for Saturday afternoon. BMO Field is an outdoor field where the weather can make a big difference. What's the weather look like for this Saturday? Toronto is expected to get 22 mph winds with gusts up to 30 mph.
That's the type of wind that will change a game. In every football league there is if you look at long term history, the under has done extremely well in these conditions.
Neither of these offenses are very good to start with. Neither team has been able to run the ball this year. These teams rank last and second to last in rushing yards this season. They'll have to run it more with this weather, and I don't see them having much success.
Take the under.
