Things are tightening up in the standings, and Week 12 CFL betting action heats up on Friday night when the Hamilton Tiger-Cats try to avenge an early-season road loss to the Edmonton Eskimos.
Hamilton (5-5) is a 6-point favorite at 5Dimes as they host Edmonton (6-4) at Ivor Wynne Stadium. The posted total for the game is set at 50.5.
The Tiger-Cats were crushed 43-13 by the Montreal Alouettes last time out as 5-point road underdogs, while the combined 56 points paid out to UNDER bettors on the posted total of 57.5 set by oddsmakers.
Edmonton was defeated by its nemesis Calgary 30-20 as a 2.5-point home underdog last week, while the 50 points went UNDER that game’s posted total of 53.
If Saskatchewan wants to make a late-season charge toward the playoffs, it must keep winning. The Roughriders (3-7) host the league-worst Toronto Argonauts (2-8) in the first of two CFL betting matchups on Saturday. 5Dimes has Saskatchewan as a 7.5-point favorite, while the game’s total is set at 50.5.
Saskatchewan is coming off back-to-back wins over East-leading Winnipeg, including a 45-23 rout last week on the road as 6-point underdogs. That game’s 68 points sailed OVER the posted total of 48 set by oddsmakers.
Toronto was run over by the Lions 28-6 in Week 11 as a 7.5-point road underdog. The game’s total fell UNDER the posted total of 49. UNDER bettors have fared well when these two teams have matched up.
The Lions (4-6) will be trying to stay ahead in the race for the last playoff spot in the West, but they will have to fend off the division-leading Calgary Stampeders (7-3) on the road in CFL betting action on Saturday night.
Oddsmakers at 5Dimes see the Stampeders as a 5.5-point favorite at home for this contest. The game’s total is sitting at 51 points.
Montreal is coming off a lopsided victory over Hamilton, while Winnipeg is reeling after getting beaten twice in a row by the lowly Roughriders. The Alouettes (6-4) can move atop the East with a win over the division-leading Winnipeg Blue Bombers (7-3) in the lone CFL betting matchup on Sunday.
Montreal has dominated Winnipeg of late and 5Dimes has set them as 8-point favorites over the visiting Blue Bombers, while the total is sitting at 52.5.
