The Eskimos won both SU and ATS against the RedBlacks in the first meeting of the season between the two teams on July 11, claiming a 27-11 home victory as a 5-point favorite on the CFL odds in that UNDER result. Edmonton heads into the week with as many SU victories (five) as all four teams combined in the East Division of the CFL; Ottawa has just a single SU victory over its first five outings.
Sat Aug 16 - Calgary at Hamilton, 3:00pm ET
Last 10 Meetings: Hamilton 1-9 SU, 5-5 ATS | OU 4-6
The Tiger-Cats lost their fifth straight game SU against the Stampeders in their first meeting of the season on July 18, falling 10-7 but covering the spread on the CFL betting lines as a 9.5-point road underdog.

The UNDER has paid out in four of their last five meetings.

The UNDER has paid out on the CFL odds for totals bettors in four of their last six meetings.
