Week 3 CFL Betting Odds
Thursday night sees the surprisingly undefeated Winnipeg Blue Bombers host the Calgary Stampeders to kick off Week 3 of the CFL betting season.
Winnipeg has gone 2-0 so far (1-1 ATS) but are 3-point home underdogs to the Stamps at 5Dimes, with the total set at 52.5 points. The Blue Bombers limited Toronto to 16 points last week (22-16), duplicating their league best points-allowed from Week 1. In the process they put Toronto quarterback Cleo Lemon on his back for seven sacks and covered the 1-point spread as favorites. The combined score of 38 was UNDER the posted total of 47.
Friday night sees two games on tap. First off, undefeated Montreal hosts the 1-1 Argonauts. Oddsmakers at 5Dimes see this as a blowout, with the Alouettes favored by 10 points and the total sitting at 53. It’s hard to disagree after Anthony Calvillo racked up five touchdown passes in last week's 39-25 win over Saskatchewan, tying Damon Allen’s all-time career CFL record. They covered in that game as 3.5-point road favorites and the 64 points went OVER the posted total of 56. Toronto has scored a second-worst 19.5 points per game this season, and now with Cory Boyd's knee injury they will be hard-pressed to improve on that.
The second Friday nighter will see one of Hamilton or Saskatchewan break their goose egg and get a tally in the win column. Hamilton comes into this one after losing by 18 to Edmonton last week, not nearly close to covering the 2-point spread in favor of the Eskimos. The combined 28-10 score sent bettors who picked UNDER 53.5 to the payout window. In two games so far this season the Tiger-Cats have only managed an average of 13 points per game, and while Saskatchewan is winless, they’ve more than doubled that total at 26.5. Home field, however, has oddsmakers listing Hamilton as a 2.5-point favorite at 5Dimes, with the total set at 51.5.
Week 3 in the CFL ends with all-West matchup as the Eskimos play host to the Lions. B.C. is 0-2, but have lost their games by a combined six points so far, including a two-point loss to Calgary at home last week. Travis Lulay threw two TD passes but was also picked off twice in that match as B.C. failed to cover the 3-point home spread. Surprising Edmonton is undefeated so far after posting wins by a combined total of 32 points. Oddsmakers at 5Dimes have the Eskimos installed as 2.5-point favorites, with the total set at 54.5.
