Canadian Football League Week 16 Betting Analysis & Picks

Canadian Football League Week 16 Betting Analysis & Picks

This week may not be as important as the last. We finally have our playoff picture practically set in stone. From the West, the Blue Bombers are the divisional leader and will have a home-field advantage in the playoffs. Following Winnipeg, the Roughriders and Stampeders have qualified for the postseason. From the East, the Argonauts have clinched their divisional title and will also have a home-field advantage. 

The Alouettes and Tiger-Cats have also both qualified for postseason play. The only piece of drama for this week is who gets the home game in the East semi-final. It’s either Montreal or Hamilton but we’ll see what happens in the regular-season finale. With that in mind, let’s have a look at the top Canadian Football League games for Week 16 so you can get all set to bet against the CFL odds.

2021 CFL Week 16 Betting Preview

Edmonton Elks vs Toronto Argonauts, NOV 16th @ 7:30 pm

Yes, we do have some Tuesday night football. Seems odd, doesn’t it? Nonetheless, this is the final regular-season game for Toronto and they won’t play until December 5th! This game will consist of no starters for Toronto (most likely) so this is the chance to see how deep this team really is. Even without the starters in for Toronto, the Argos will still manage to pull out this victory and put an exclamation point on what has been a fantastic regular season! 

Pick: TOR -4

Ottawa Redblacks vs Montreal Alouettes, NOV 19th @ 7:30 pm

One of two games that will have some meaning this week. Montreal needs this win in order to have a home postseason game. The Reblacks don’t stand a chance in this matchup. The Als have been able to dominate with their depth all season. Montreal has not had a problem adjusting their roster and on Friday night, they most certainly won’t back down for one final game in the 514! This game will be no contest as Montreal looks to add one more home game onto their schedule! 

Pick: MTL -14

Edmonton Elks vs BC Lions, NOV 19th @ 10:30 pm

Two teams that have no life beyond this week. Most people on the east coast will be past out and this game won’t be all too exciting. The BC Lions have been fantastic all year and it’s so unfortunate they were unable to reach the playoffs. But hey as they say in Toronto, there’s always next year! This will be Edmonton’s second game of the week! It will really suck to see them lose twice in three days! The Elk has been playing rather poor and that will show on Friday when BC wins one final game for the hometown crowd! 

Pick: BC -4.5

Saskatchewan Roughriders vs Hamilton Tigercats, NOV 20th @ 4:00 pm

This is the other game with any playoff impact. Depending on the result from Friday night in Montreal, it will determine how competitive Hamilton will be. Assuming Montreal wins (which they will), you would assume the Tigercats put a bit more effort into this Saturday afternoon matchup. Even with the Roughriders playing conservative, there is reason to doubt Hamilton winning this game! There will be an upset brewing in Ontario and it will be in Hamilton! The Tigercats will get shocked by the Roughriders!

Pick: SSK +3.5

Winnipeg Blue Bombers vs Calgary Stampeders, NOV 20th @ 7:00 pm

It’s a potential preview of the Western championship game! Both of these teams cannot move their playoff ranking so this game will be all about depth. Winnipeg is the team to beat and even with their backups, they will demonstrate that everyone wants to get some of that winning Manitoba culture! This weekend, the Blue Bombers will get their final win of the regular season as they continue the quest for the first repeat title in the CFL since the Montreal Alouettes!

Pick: WPG -4
