The Tiger-Cats look to build upon their first win of the season to start Week 4 by taking on the struggling Lions in British Columbia on Friday night.
B.C. is 0-3 on the season but favored by 3 points at 5Dimes over 1-2 Hamilton. The total has been set at 49.5 points. Hamilton and Quarterback Kevin Glenn had been struggling to start the season, but a 33-3 win against hapless Saskatchewan last week may have been the tonic to put them back on track. They covered as 2-point favorites in that game and the combined 36 points sent the total UNDER the posted 51.5.
Saturday features a doubleheader, with the first game having the Blue Bombers visit the 3.5-point favored Argonauts. Oddsmakers at 5Dimes have the total set at 46.5 in this matchup. Winnipeg dropped their first game last week, 21-20 to Calgary, but still boast the league's best defense. Winnipeg did pick up the ATS win in that game, covering the 3.5-point margin that had favored Calgary. The combined score of 41 went UNDER the posted total of 52. Winnipeg’s offense may be tested this week as backup QB Joseph Elliot was knocked out for the season after replacing Buck Pierce, who is now favoring a quadriceps injury.
Saturday’s second game sees those same Stampeders host Edmonton, favored by 3.5 points by the 5Dimes oddsmakers over the Eskimos. The total in this one is set at 52.5. Edmonton remains undefeated after beating the Lions last week 33-17. Edmonton covered the 2.5-point spread as favorites, while the combined score of 50 went UNDER the posted total of 54.5.
The week concludes on Sunday with the Roughriders visiting the undefeated Alouettes in Montreal, where the home side is favored by 11 points at 5Dimes with the total set at 56 in this game. The Alouettes come into this tilt after trouncing Toronto 40-17 last week, covering the 11-point spread. The total of 57 points sent bettors who picked OVER the posted total of 53.5 home happy. Anthony Calvillo set the all-time CFL TD strike mark in that contest and looks to use the Roughriders as victims as he closes in on the all-time passing mark.
