The Alouettes got off to an ugly start to the season over the weekend, falling 38-10 on the road against the Stampeders and not coming close to covering the spread as underdogs on the CFL lines at the sportsbooks. The Blue Bombers lost big in Week 1 as well, falling 33-16 on the road in B.C., and they opened as 7-point underdogs on the road in Montreal for Friday's contest.

Fri July 6 - Hamilton at British Columbia, 10:00pm ET
Last 10 Meetings: B.C. 5-5 SU, 3-7 ATS | OU 4-6

The Tiger-Cats were trounced 43-16 at home by the Roughriders in their Sportsbook game of the season last Friday night despite being pegged as a favorite on the CFL lines at the sportsbooks, and they opened as 6-point road underdogs against the Lions for their Week 2 contest. The Lions easily covered the spread against the Bombers in their Week 1 victory.

Sat July 7 - Calgary at Toronto, 3:00pm ET
Last 10 Meetings: Toronto 4-6 SU, 5-5 ATS | OU 4-6

The Argonauts fell 19-15 on the road against the Eskimos in Week 1, keeping the score closer than any of the other Eastern teams in their Sportsbook-week defeats. For their game on Saturday afternoon, however, the Argonauts opened as 5-point home underdogs on the sportsbooks' CFL odds against the Stampeders, with Calgary looking to bounce an Eastern team for the second straight week.

Sun July 08 - Edmonton at Saskatchewan, 7:00pm ET
Last 10 Meetings: Saskatchewan 3-7 SU, 3-7 ATS | OU 5-5

The Eskimos and Roughriders will close out the second week of the Canadian Football League season on Sunday night, with the oddsmakers Sportsbook Saskatchewan as 4.5-point favorites on the CFL odds for the contest. The Riders put up more points than any other team in Week 1, and their game with the Tiger-Cats produced the only OVER result.
