CFL Betting Notes - Week 17
By David Schwab
VegasInsider.com

The cream is starting to rise to the top in CFL with all four favorites winning both straight-up and against the spread last week. British Columbia started things off last Friday night with a 37-17 victory over Hamilton as a 1½ -point road favorite.

The early game on Saturday saw Calgary run past Winnipeg 32-21 as a three-point road favorite to clinch a spot in the postseason. Later in the day, Edmonton improved its playoff chances with a 37-20 win over Saskatchewan as a one-point favorite at home. Montreal made its way back into the playoffs on Sunday by doubling-up Toronto 24-12 as a 2½ -point road favorite.

The following is brief preview of Week 17 in the CFL along with the opening point spread and 'over/under' lines as provided by 5Dimes.

Friday, Oct. 19

Winnipeg Blue Bombers vs. Toronto Argonauts OFF Total: OFF


You can just about put the fork in Winnipeg's playoff chances at 4-11 SU but it has been competitive ATS at 7-8. The total has stayed UNDER in five of its last six games. The Argonauts are clinging to a playoff spot right now in the East at 7-8 SU (7-8 ATS) but still need a couple of victories to officially clinch a spot. The total has stayed UNDER in their last four games.

The Blue Bombers have already lost the first two meetings this season SU but they earned a split ATS with each team covering on the road. Winnipeg is 8-18 ATS in its last 26 trips to Toronto and the total has stayed UNDER in 13 of the last 18 meetings overall.

Edmonton Eskimos vs. British Columbia Lions (-8) Total: 47

The Eskimos' back-to-back victories over Calgary and the Tiger-Cats raised their overall record to 7-8 SU and 9-6 ATS. They have now covered in three of their last four games with the total going OVER in three of them. BC is firmly in the driver seat for another West Division title at a CFL-best 11-4 SU, but it is under .500 ATS at 7-8. The total has stayed UNDER in its last four games.

These teams split two earlier meetings this season with each team winning SU on the road. Edmonton snapped a four-game losing streak to the Lions both SU and ATS with a 27-14 victory on July 20 as an 8½ -point road underdog while BC returned the favor in a 19-81 squeaker as a 3½ -point road favorite on Sept.22. The total stayed UNDER in both games and has now stayed UNDER in five of the last seven meetings.

Saturday, Oct. 20

Montreal Alouettes vs. Saskatchewan Roughriders (-3½) Total: 53


Montreal extended its lead in the East to two games with last week's win. It is now 9-6 SU and 7-8 ATS. The total has stayed UNDER in four of its last five games. The Roughriders are 8-7 both SU and ATS and can clinch a playoff spot in the West with a win and some help. The total has stayed UNDER in six of their last nine games.

The Alouettes beat Saskatchewan 28-17 back on Sept.16 as 6 ½ -point favorites at home and have now won eight of the last 10 meetings SU. The Roughriders have a 6-2 edge ATS in the last eight meetings and the total has stayed UNDER in seven of the last 10 meetings including the first game between the two this year.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats vs. Calgary Stampeders (-6½) Total: 55½

The Tiger-Cats playoff chances are on life-support at 5-10 SU (7-8 ATS) and they have just two SU victories in their last 10 games. The total has gone OVER in five of their last seven games. Calgary is now 9-6 SU and 8-7 ATS. It is just 2-2 SU and ATS in its last four games and the total has gone OVER in three of those contests.

Calgary beat Hamilton 31-20 in early August as a four-point road underdog. The total stayed UNDER the 59½-point line but it went OVER in the previous three meetings. The Stampeders have won seven of the last nine meetings SU and are 6-2 ATS in the last eight. They are 4-1 ATS at home against Hamilton in the last five meetings.

Re: CFL Week 17 Betting News and Notes

CFL's Week 17 Betting Preview
By Covers.com

With only three games remaining on the regular season schedule, the drive to the postseason continues for CFL teams in Week 17.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers at Toronto Argonauts (-4.5, 50.5)

The Blue Bombers are coming off a 32-21 loss to Calgary and need to win in Toronto Friday to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. The Bombers received some good news earlier this week when first-string QB Buck Pierce (concussion) was cleared to play. Pierce has been sidelined since taking a helmet-to-helmet hit from Toronto’s Brandon Isaac in a 29-10 home loss to the Argos on Sept. 29.

The Argonauts are second in the East Division with a mediocre record of 7-8. Toronto has dropped two straight and suffered losses in four of its last five games. However, head coach Scott Milanovich announced that first-string QB Ricky Ray (MCL) will return Friday and give the club a much-needed morale boost. The Argonauts are just 1-5 ATS in their last six home games.

Edmonton Eskimos at B.C. Lions (-8, 47)

The Lions have already clinched a playoff spot with the best record (11-4) in the CFL after 15 games. The Leos have won two straight and five of their last six contests after a convincing 37-17 victory over Hamilton last week. Quarterback Travis Lulay, who celebrated the birth of a new child earlier this week, converted 27 of 34 passes for 343 yards and two touchdowns, extending his streak of consecutive games with at least one passing score to 26 straight.

The Eskimos kept their playoff hopes alive with a 37-20 win over Saskatchewan last week. Running back Hugh Charles racked up a career-high 152 yards on 17 carries in the win to earn CFL Offensive Player of the Week honors. Edmonton is 5-1 ATS in its last six October games.

Montreal Alouettes at Saskatchewan Roughriders (-3.5, 53)

The Alouettes (9-7) are the only team in the East with a winning record after they avoided a third straight loss with a 24-12 victory over the Argos last week. Quarterback Anthony Calvillo has completed less than 54 percent of his pass attempts over the last five games, something that has happened only once during his previous 10 outings in 2012. The 19-year CFL veteran has looked mediocre at times this season and has voiced his frustration in dealings with the media over the last few weeks.

The Roughriders are one of the hottest teams in the league since the start of September, winning five of their last six games. However, Kory Sheets has cooled off as of late. The running back has scored just once in his last five games, which is a far cry from his efforts earlier in the campaign when he recorded at least one TD in five straight contests. The teams have played under the total in four of the last five meetings.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Calgary Stampeders (-7, 56)

The Tiger-Cats managed just three points through the first three quarters in front of their hometown fans, eventually leading to a 37-17 loss to British Columbia last week. The Hamilton defense surrendered 476 yards to the Lions and was stuck on the field for just under 40 minutes in the contest, limiting the opportunities for the league’s best offensive unit (29.2 points per game) led by QB Henry Burris.

Calgary has already secured a spot in the playoffs, thanks to a 9-6 mark after it took out Winnipeg last week. Quarterback Kevin Glenn led the way for the Stampeders, converting 21 of 29 passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns. The Stamps won the most recent battle with the Tiger-Cats, who are 1-4 ATS in their last five meetings with Calgary, by a score of 31-20 in August.
