Grey Cup - Division Finals
By David Schwab
VegasInsider.com

We are down to the final four teams in this season’s CFL Grey Cup playoffs after Sunday’s division semifinals. In the early game, Toronto rolled-over Edmonton 42-26 as a four-point home favorite to advance to the East Division Finals, while Calgary escaped with a dramatic 36-30 victory over Saskatchewan as a six-point home favorite in the West Division Semifinals.

The following is a betting preview for this Sunday’s division finals with early betting lines provided by 5Dimes.

Sunday, November 18

Toronto Argonauts vs. Montreal Alouettes (-6) Total: 54½


Toronto has now strung together three straight wins heading into this contest to move to 10-9 on the year both straight up and against the spread. The Argonauts now head on the road where they are 5-4 SU and 6-3 ATS on the year. The total has gone OVER in their last four games.
   
Montreal earned a first-round bye with an overall record of 11-7 but it was under .500 ATS at 8-10. The Alouettes have been tough to beat at home with a 7-2 SU record but there have been some close calls with a 4-5 record ATS. The total has stayed UNDER in five of their last eight games.

These two teams met three times this season with Toronto getting the best of it in Game 1 by the score of 23-20 as a 3½-point road underdog. The Alouettes returned the favor with two-straight victories both SU and ATS. They waxed the Argonauts 31-10 as 3½ -point favorites at home and beat them on the road 24-12 as 2½-point favorites. The total stayed UNDER in all three games. Both teams come into this matchup in relatively good health, especially Montreal, which should benefit from being able to rest its starters down the stretch.

Calgary Stampeders vs. British Columbia Lions (-6½) Total: 50½

Calgary’s last-minute win this past Sunday extended its season while moving its overall record to 13-6 SU. It is 10-8-1 ATS this season with the total going OVER in 11 of its 19 games. The Stampeders are 5-4 SU in nine road games and slightly better ATS at 6-3. The total has gone OVER in their last three games on the road.

The defending Grey Cup champs are in perfect position to repeat after posting the CFL’s best overall record at 13-5 SU. The Lions went an even 9-9 ATS and the total stayed UNDER in 12 of their 18 regular season games. They were a sterling 8-1 SU at home this season and a profitable 6-3 ATS.

The Stampeders avoided the season-series sweep with a 41-21 victory over the Lions on Oct.27 as three-point favorites at home, but that was after BC had already clinched the West Division and first-round bye. The Lions cruised to a 34-8 victory early in the season as one-point road favorites and returned home to beat Calgary 27-22 on Oct.6 as four-point favorites. The total stayed UNDER in the first two meetings. Overall, the Stampeders are 12-5-1 ATS in the last 18 meetings and 8-1 ATS in their last nine trips to British Columbia. Calgary got through last Sunday’s game with no key injuries, while BC’s defensive secondary is hoping to have both Dante Marsh and Hamid Mahmoudi back for this game.

Re: CFL Division Finals Betting News and Notes

CFL Playoffs

Keep in mind the two home teams here had a bye last weekend.......

Toronto (10-9) @ Montreal (11-7)-- Toronto scored 31-43-42 points in winning last three games to get here; Argonauts lost two of three vs Montreal this year, upsetting Als 23-20 (+4) here in Week 5, then losing 31-10 (+3.5) in Week 13, 27-12 (+2.5) at home three weeks after that. Argos covered six of their last seven road games; they are 6-2 in last eight games as an underdog. Montreal is 7-2 at home this year, 4-5 vs spread as a home favorite- they got upset here in first playoff game LY- they're 0-6 this year when scoring less than 27 points. Last four Toronto games went over the total; six of last eight Alouette games stayed under.

Calgary (13-6) @ British Columbia (13-5)-- Stampeders won last five games- they're 5-2 in last seven road games, 5-1 vs spread as underdog- they lost two of three against BC this year, losing 34-8 (-2.5) at home in Week 5, 27-22 (+4.5) here in Week 15, then they pounded Lions 41-20 (-3.5) at home three weeks ago. Defending champion Lions won last six home games, covering five; BC is only team left in playoffs that won game in LY's playoffs, but Stamps are playing best ball of season now. Obviously it helps Montreal/BC to have had last week off to regroup. Seven of last eight Calgary games went over the total; under is 4-2-1 in last seven Lion games.

CFL Preview
Covers.com

And then there were four. The battle for football supremacy north of the border rages on this Sunday as the Montreal Alouettes host the Toronto Argonauts in the Eastern Final, while the Calgary Stampeders travel to B.C. for a date with the Lions in the West finale.

Toronto at Montreal (-5, 55)

The Argonauts posted 31 second-quarter points to jump out to an early lead and cruise past Edmonton last week for the right to square off with the Alouettes. Quarterback Ricky Ray had lost twice to his former club during the regular season before connecting on 23 of his 30 passes for 239 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The veteran QB has guided the Argos to a 4-0 record O/U in their last four contests overall.

Montreal took two of three from Toronto during the regular season, although Ray was absent for the majority of the second meeting and the entire third contest due to injury. Als QB Anthony Calvillo is shooting for his fourth Grey Cup title and logged his second consecutive 5,000-yard passing campaign and seventh of his legendary career. Montreal is 5-0 ATS in its last five division final games, while Toronto is 0-4 ATS in its last five Eastern Final games.

Calgary at B.C. (-6.5, 51)

The Stampeders needed some late-game heroics from QB Drew Tate to sneak by the Roughriders last Sunday and earn a date with the CFL-best Lions. Drew Tate threw for 363 yards and two touchdowns, including a 68-yard strike to Romby Bryant late in the fourth quarter to put the nail in the coffin. But the victory came at a cost. Tate took several huge hits throughout the contest and it was later revealed he played with a fractured right arm. The Iowa product is done for the season, but the Stamps have a more than capable backup. Kevin Glenn, who was benched for last week's game in favor of Tate despite having played in 15 games this season, has 12 years of CFL experience and will answer the bell. Calgary is 0-4-1 ATS in its last five playoff games, but has covered in eight of its last nine trips to B.C.

The Lions are the defending Grey Cup champs and have had a week to lick their wounds and get ready for Calgary. B.C. took two of three regular season meetings from the Stamps, but Calgary came away with a 41-21 victory in the most recent clash in late October. Lions QB Travis Lulay doesn’t have a ton of playoff experience, but he’s been effective in limited action. The pivot has eight TD’s (six passing, two rushing) and 1,080 yards in his three playoff appearances. The over is 5-0 in the Lions' last five playoff games.
