We are chomping at the bit for wagering action, thus we decided to supply some football, Canadien-style (note the north of the border spelling), for today. As always, review the tasty trend nuggets at the bottom of the page.
CFL – (121) CALGARY at (122) MONTREAL 7:35 EDT TSN (side and total)
Long time Montreal quarterback Anthony Calvillo has been upgraded to probable after suffering a shoulder injury against Winnipeg last Friday. A MRI on Monday revealed no structural damage and Calvillo has stated he’s ready to play. Those betting on football have adjusted the Alouettes from -6 to a touchdown betting choice and home favorites of 3.5 to 10-points like Montreal, are 25-6 ATS off a win over a division rival the first month of the season. The total began at 56, went to 54.5 and is back up to 55 with Calvillo returning. Montreal is 9-1 UNDER at Stade Percival-Molson Stadium after outgaining opponent by 120 or more total yards in their previous game. 3DW Position – Calgary covers and Under
CFL – Saturday (125) BRITISH COLUMBIA at (126) SASKATCHEWAN 3:05 EDT TSN
Only one team will be undefeated after three weeks of action with this West Division confrontation. British Columbia is the defending Grey Cup champions and they have met the earlier challenges with a pair of wins. Saskatchewan will lean on its defense to slow down the Lions, having permitted only 17 total points in two games. Most oddsmakers opened the defending champions anywhere from -1.5 to 2-point road favorites and that has been bumped up to three as of today. The B.C. passing game isn’t clicking yet, but their running game has saved them, averaging 166.5 yards a contest and they are 13-4 ATS in road conflicts after outrushing opponents by 100 or more yards. The Roughriders are just 2-9 ATS versus division foes since last season and 1-3 ATS vs. British Columbia at home of late. 3DW Position – British Columbia covers
CFL – Saturday (127) TORONTO at (128) HAMILTON 7:05 EDT TSN (side and total)
Hamilton is one of two teams that have yet to win a game in CFL action this season. The Tiger-Cats lack of success has led to football bettors to drop them from -5 to -3.5-point favorites. Among the reasons for Hamilton’s slow start is their run defense in a passing league, conceding 164.5 yards per game, at an alarming 7.4 yards per carry. The total on this matchup has zoomed from 53 to 56, which is right in the Ti-Cats wheelhouse, since they are 8-1 ATS at home when the total is between 52.5 and 56 the last three seasons. Though Hamilton’s defense has been porous, they are 6-0 UNDER playing the role of host after two or more consecutive straight up losses since 2010. 3DW Position – Toronto covers and Under
