*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.
*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.
