Week 14 CFL Preview and Point Spreads
Montreal Alouettes at Calgary Stampeders
has Calgary as a 3.5-point favorite in this game with a total of 56.
This is a match up of the last two Grey Cup winners and there is a good chance these teams will play each other for this season’s title. Each team leads their respective conference and even though Calgary has scored the most points and allowed the fewest points in the league they have lost two in a row while Montreal has won three straight. This game features the two best offenses in the league with two of the best QB’s in Henry Burris of Calgary and Anthony Calvillo of Montreal, but the key to this game is which team can play some defense.
Saskatchewan Roughriders at Toronto Argonauts
Saskatchewan are the away favorite in this game by 4-points at with a total of 48.5.
Saskatchewan has won two straight and they have QB Darian Durant, who leads the CFL in passing yards. However, while they have the third most points in the league and look to make the playoffs the defending West Division champions are only 2-4 on the road this season. Toronto is in a battle with Hamilton to make the playoffs out of the East, but they have given up more points than they have scored this season. Toronto QB Cleo Lemon has four more INT’s than TD’s this season and he will have to play well in this game.
Winnipeg Blue Bombers at BC Lions
has BC as 5-point favorites in this game with a total of 53.5.
BC has to start winning, as they are in third in the West eight points behind Saskatchewan and they have to go on a winning streak to make the post-season. They can start that streak in this game against a Winnipeg team that has lost two straight and has given up the most points in the East. Winnipeg has yet to win on the road this season, but BC is only 1-5 at home.
Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Edmonton Eskimos
has this game as a Pick-em with a total of 51.
Edmonton snapped their losing streak with win last week and they can really hurt Hamilton’s playoff chances with a home win. Hamilton is tied with Toronto for second place in the East. Edmonton played great defense in last week’s win over Toronto and they will need to play good defense again since their offense has scored the fewest points in the league this season. They will have to clamp down on Hamilton QB Kevin Glenn, who ranks second in the CFL this season in passing yards.
