CFL Betting Notes - Week 15
By David Schwab
VegasInsider.com

A couple of upsets here and there in Week 14 of the CFL regular season have helped to tighten things up in the race to this year’s Grey Cup Playoffs. Winnipeg was no match for British Columbia last Friday night in a 53-17 drubbing as a 5½ -point home underdog. However, Calgary started things off on Saturday with a 35-11 victory as a one-point road underdog against Hamilton.

Toronto continued its impressive run on the road with a 34-22 win over Edmonton as a one-point favorite to close-out Saturday’s games. Saskatchewan’s shocking losing streak reached four games with Sunday’s 17-12 loss to Montreal as a 3½ -point favorite on the road.

The following is a brief betting preview for this week’s games in the CFL with the opening pointspread and ‘over/under’ lines provided by 5Dimes.

Friday, Oct. 5

Hamilton Tiger-Cats vs. Toronto Argonauts


Point-spread: Toronto -4
Total: 55

The rubber meets the road in Friday’s East Division clash with the Tiger-Cats trailing Toronto by three games in the title race. They are 6-7 both straight-up and against the spread this season after going 2-3 SU (3-2 ATS) in their last five games. The total has gone OVER in three of those five games.

The Argonauts are coming off a four-game road trip in which they went a perfect 4-0 both SU and ATS. The defending champs are now 9-4 SU (8-5 ATS) on the year and have already clinched a berth in this season’s playoffs. The total has gone OVER in their last four games. Toronto returns home where it is 3-3 SU and 2-4 ATS in six previous games this year.

These two opened the regular season against one another with the Argonauts coming away with a 39-34 victory as 3½ -point favorites at home. The total went OVER the 56½ points. Hamilton is 1-4 both SU and ATS in its last four road games against the Argonauts and the total has gone OVER in the last five meetings overall.

Saskatchewan Roughriders vs. British Columbia Lions

Point-spread: BC -3½
Total: 52½

The Roughriders’ current skid has dropped them to third in the West at 8-5 SU (6-7 ATS) and two games in back of Calgary for the division lead. The total has stayed UNDER in three of the four losses after going OVER in six of their first nine games. Saskatchewan is averaging 29.8 points a game this season, but that number has dropped dramatically to just 19 points during this recent slide.

BC continues to press the Stampeders for the lead in the West with three straight victories both SU and ATS in improve to 9-4 SU (7-6 ATS) on the year. The Lions are a perfect 6-0 SU at home this season and 4-2 ATS. The total has stayed UNDER in four of those six home games. Quarterback Travis Lulay remains questionable for Friday night after missing the last two games with a shoulder injury.

These two met just two weeks ago with BC squeezing-out a 24-22 victory as a six-point road underdog. The total stayed UNDER the 53-point line. The Lions are 7-1 SU in their last eight home games against Saskatchewan and 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings at home. The total has stayed UNDER in 10 of the last 11 meetings in BC.

Saturday, Oct. 6

Montreal Alouettes vs. Edmonton Eskimos


Point-spread: Edmonton -3
Total: 51

Montreal’s win this past Sunday breathed new life into its postseason plans, but it is still three games below .500 at 5-8 SU. It is 7-6 ATS with the total staying UNDER in seven of the 13 games. The Alouettes are the second-lowest scoring team in the CFL with an average of 23.2 points a game.

Edmonton desperately needs to win this game to have any chance of making the postseason as a crossover team from the West. Last week’s loss left it two games in back of Montreal for that sixth and final playoff spot at 3-10 SU. The Eskimos are 6-7 ATS this season and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games. The total has gone OVER in eight of their last 10 games.

The Alouettes won the first meeting this season 32-27 as four-point home favorites with the total going OVER the 48½ -point line. Montreal has dominated this series over the past several seasons with a 9-1 SU mark in the last 10 meetings and an 8-2 record ATS. The total has gone OVER in eight of the last 11 meetings in Edmonton.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers vs. Calgary Stampeders

Point-spread: Calgary -16
Total: 54½

Winnipeg is left to play the role of spoiler this season after losing 11 of their first 13 games. It is 4-9 ATS with the total going OVER in six of seven home games while staying UNDER in five of six contests on the road. The Blue Bombers remain the lowest scoring team in the CFL while allowing the most points on defense.

Calgary continues to stampede its way to the West Division title with five SU victories in its last six games. It is now a CFL-best 10-3 SU on the year and a profitable 8-5 ATS. The total has gone OVER in five of its six home games. The Stampeders have scored 35 points or more in seven games this year.

The Blue Bombers lost the first meeting this season as 5½ -point home underdogs in a 37-24 setback in Week 5. Calgary has won nine of the last 10 games in this series SU, but the record ATS in this matchup is an even 4-4-2 during this stretch. The total has gone OVER in four of the last six meetings.

Re: CFL Week 15 Betting News and Notes

CFL Friday: What Bettors Need to Know
By Covers.com

Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Toronto Argonuats (-4, 56)

The Toronto Argonauts return from their four-game road trip to host the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Friday as part of back-to-back games between the East Division rivals. Toronto clinched a playoff spot with its sixth straight road victory last week and hopes to translate some of that away success to Rogers Centre, where it is 3-3. Argonauts running back Chad Kackert was named offensive player of the week after recording 155 rushing yards and two touchdowns in his return from injury against Edmonton.

The Tiger-Cats were dismantled at home by the Calgary Stampeders last week as starting quarterback Henry Burris threw three interceptions and backup Dan LeFevour tossed two. Without an effective passing game, Hamilton was held to its lowest point total since being shut out by the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Week 4. The Tiger-Cats trail the Argonauts by six points for the East Division lead, meaning the next two games will go a long way toward determining who earns a bye in the opening round of the playoffs.

ABOUT THE TIGER-CATS (6-7): Burris leads the league with 3,899 passing yards, while running back C.J. Gable has 569 rushing yards as part of 1,047 from scrimmage. Wide receiver Andy Fantuz has 678 receiving yards in an injury-shortened season, but on pace for his second career 1,000-yard campaign. "I think I'll continue getting better,” Fantuz told the Hamilton Spectator. “I feel like a lot of subtle parts of my game have already got a lot better and have been fine-tuned this year." Hamilton added another speedy wide receiver in Brandon Banks, who spent three seasons with the NFL’s Washington football team.

ABOUT THE ARGONAUTS (9-4): Kick returner Trent Guy was named special teams player of the week after returning four kicks for 131 yards, including a 65-yard return in the first quarter. Slotback Chad Owens and quarterback Ricky Ray remain out with injuries, but quarterback Zach Collaros is gaining confidence with every game, leading a 21-point rally against Edmonton in the second half last week. "It just goes to show the kind of character we have on this team," coach Scott Milanovich said. "Nobody here believes a game is over until there are zeros on the clock.''

TRENDS:

* Tiger-Cats are 4-0 ATS in their last four road games.
* Argonauts are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games.
* Over is 5-0 in the last five meetings.
* Tiger-Cats are 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 meetings in Toronto.

EXTRA POINTS:

1. Toronto DB Pat Watkins leads the league with five interceptions.

2. The Argonauts have allowed a league-high 296.1 passing yards per game, while the Tiger-Cats have allowed a league-high 28 passing touchdowns.

3. The Argonauts defeated Hamilton 39-34 at home to open the season.


Saskatchewan Roughriders at BC Lions (-3, 52.5)

The Saskatchewan Roughriders are in a tailspin after their franchise-record start to the season, dropping four straight games and sitting third in the West Division. The Roughriders will have a chance to make up some ground on a team that passed them when they visit the BC Lions on Friday. Saskatchewan’s offense has looked lost without league-leading running back Kory Sheets, who was on pace to break the CFL record for rushing yardage in a season before suffering a knee injury three weeks ago.

The Lions defeated the Roughriders 24-22 in Week 13 as part of a perfect two-game road swing to bring a three-game winning streak back to BC Place, where they are 6-0 in 2013 and have not lost in 12 regular season games. BC scored three defensive touchdowns in last week’s victory against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, which took the pressure off backup quarterback Thomas DeMarco. DeMarco completed 15-of-21 passes with one touchdown starting in place of Travis Lulay, who will miss at least two more weeks with a shoulder injury.

ABOUT THE ROUGHRIDERS (8-5): Saskatchewan has been held to 34 points in two full games without Sheets. Quarterback Darian Durant completed 59-of-98 passes for 665 yards over that span, throwing three touchdowns and three interceptions, but the Roughriders running game was non-existent, totaling 54 yards. The defense is hurting as well without linebacker Renauld Williams, who led the team in tackles and sacks before being placed on the nine-game injured list. Slotback Chris Getzlaf is on pace for a career year with 861 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.

ABOUT THE LIONS (9-4): Linebacker Adam Bighill was named defensive player of the week after recording 10 tackles, one sack and forcing two fumbles against the Blue Bombers. Bighill returned one of those fumbles for a touchdown. Cornerbacks Dante Marsh and Cord Parks also scored touchdowns off turnovers. Lulay expressed confidence in DeMarco’s abilities Monday and said he hopes to resume throwing soon. "The swelling and inflammation stuff needs to go down and that's kind of where we're at,'' Lulay said. "We're getting to the tail end of that where I'm getting my range of motion back. Now it's a buildup to the strengthening and the throwing again.''

TRENDS:

* Roughriders are 0-4 ATS in their last four road games.
* Lions are 4-0 ATS in their last four vs. West.
* Under is 17-5 in the last 22 meetings in BC.
* Roughriders are 2-7 ATS in their last nine meetings.

EXTRA POINTS:

1. Saskatchewan signed DB Rod Williams to shore up its secondary after Williams failed to make the roster of the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings. Williams played three seasons with the Edmonton Eskimos.

2. BC has 17 interceptions and allows a league-low 247.7 passing yards per game.

3. Saskatchewan SB Geroy Simon broke the CFL record for all-time receptions last week with five catches to bring his career total to 1,020.

Re: CFL Week 15 Betting News and Notes

CFL Saturday: What Bettors Need to Know
By Covers.com

Montreal Alouettes at Edmonton Eskimos (-3, 50.5)

The Montreal Alouettes may be struggling to replace key injuries on offense, but their defense is keeping them competitive. Montreal will hope for another strong defensive showing when it visits the struggling Edmonton Eskimos on Saturday. Alouettes linebacker Chip Cox ended last week’s 17-12 road victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders with an interception - one of three by Montreal, which looks fearsome at the linebacker position after welcoming Kyries “Angry Bird” Hebert back from injury.

Edmonton experienced the highs and lows of a big comeback after being on both sides of one over the past two weeks. The Eskimos stormed back from a 20-point deficit on the road against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, only to squander their own 21-point lead at home against the Toronto Argonauts last week. The biggest concern in Edmonton’s loss to the Argonauts was the health of starting quarterback Mike Reilly, who left in the first quarter with what was deemed a concussion and is uncertain to start going forward.

ABOUT THE ALOUETTES (5-8): Quarterback Josh Neiswander appears to be the de facto starter for Montreal with Anthony Calvillo and Tanner Marsh sidelined. However, Neiswander’s mediocre play (74-for-128 passing with five touchdowns and five interceptions) has left the door open for former Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith, who completed his first pass with the Alouettes for 54 yards last week. Defensive end John Bowman leads the team with eight sacks, and the return of Hebert - who has seven sacks - could create some healthy competition for Montreal’s pass rush.

ABOUT THE ESKIMOS (3-10):
Veteran pivot Kerry Joseph replaced Reilly last week and completed 13-of-26 passes with one touchdown and two interceptions. Losing Reilly could neutralize Edmonton’s best offensive weapon in slotback Fred Stamps, who leads the league with 1,038 receiving yards. Reilly also leads the team in rushing with 539 yards. On defense, nine sacks by defensive end Marcus Howard lead the team, while defensive back Chris Thompson has caught a team-leading three interceptions and recovered one fumble for 63 yards.

TRENDS:

* Alouettes are 6-1 ATS in their last seven meetings.
* Over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Edmonton.
* Alouettes are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall.
* Over is 19-7-2 in Eskimos last 28 games overall.

EXTRA POINTS:

1. Cox leads the league with 91 tackles and has six sacks and three interceptions.

2. The CFL fined Toronto DL Cleyon Laing an undisclosed amount for the hit that knocked Reilly out of last week’s contest.

3. Edmonton trails Montreal by four points for the final playoff spot.


Winnipeg Blue Bombers at Calgary Stampeders (-16, 54)


The Calgary Stampeders have the best record in the CFL after battling through injuries to go 4-1 in September. Calgary will try to keep its momentum going when it hosts the struggling Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Saturday. Veteran quarterback Kevin Glenn started the last game for the Stampeders and threw three touchdowns in a dominating 35-11 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, while quarterback Drew Tate recorded a rushing touchdown as he continues to rehabilitate from an elbow injury.

A deflated Winnipeg team was manhandled 53-17 at home by the BC Lions last week after the Blue Bombers blew a 20-point lead at home against the Edmonton Eskimos a week prior. A road trip might seem like just the right thing for Winnipeg, but its road record is 1-5 - almost as bad as its 1-6 showing at home. Quarterback Max Hall started the last game for the Blue Bombers, who have alternated between Hall and Justin Goltz as they search for a solution to their league-worst offense, which has produced 268 points.

ABOUT THE BLUE BOMBERS (2-11): Hall will start Saturday, but will need a strong performance to avoid being replaced by Goltz. Defensive end Alex Hall leads the league with 15 sacks after posting nine in his first CFL season. The league record for sacks in a season is 26.5, meaning Hall will need another 12 in his final five games to break it. Linebacker Henoc Muamba leads the team with 76 tackles.

ABOUT THE STAMPEDERS (10-3): Kicker Rene Paredes and running back Jon Cornish were named players of the month for September. Paredes earned special teams honours after making 12-of-13 field goals from Weeks 11-14, while Cornish was named top Canadian player after rushing for 398 yards in that span. Slotback Jabari Arthur has filled in admirably for the injured Nik Lewis, with four catches for 103 yards and two touchdowns last week against Hamilton.

TRENDS:

* Blue Bombers are 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 meetings in Calgary.
* Over is 9-1 in Stampeders last 10 home games.
* Blue Bombers are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games overall.
* Stampeders are 5-12-2 ATS in their last 19 games following a ATS win.

EXTRA POINTS:

1. Calgary is 5-1 at home while Winnipeg is 1-6 against West Division opponents.

2. Winnipeg worst recent seasons were a 4-14 campaign in 2010 and a 3-15 mark in 1998.

3. The Stampeders defeated the Blue Bombers 37-24 in Winnipeg in Week 5.
