Friday, Oct. 26

  • Calgary Stampeders at Winnipeg Blue Bombers -3.5

The first time Calgary battled Winnipeg, they easily handled the Blue Bombers. Calgary beat Winnipeg 39-26 as a -8.5 home favorite. That was way back in August, though. The Stampeders haven’t looked great in their last couple of matches, losing straight up to British Columbia 21-26 and straight up to Saskatchewan 24-29.

Winnipeg rides a 4-game winning streak into this matchup. The Blue Bombers are 4-0 ATS in those last 4. Blue Bombers should handle Calgary and cover on Friday.

  • Ottawa RedBlacks at Hamilton Tiger-Cats -3.5

Ottawa maintains first place in the East Division, but they haven’t exactly torn it up in their last 2. Winnipeg beat them 40-32 before Edmonton took them down 34-16. This game on Saturday is a rematch of a game on Oct. 19.

In that one, the RedBlacks beat the Tiger-Cats 34-31. There’s a good chance Hamilton turns the tables on Ottawa on Saturday. The game should be tight, but Tiger-Cats figure to do just enough to cover.

  • British Columbia Lions at Saskatchewan Rough Riders -4

If this matchup happened earlier in the season, in July or August, Saskatchewan would be a -7 favorite. The Rough Riders beat BC 24-21 on the road on August 25. Since that game, both teams have played well.

British Columbia has won 3 in a row. No win was as impressive as upsetting Calgary 26-21 on the road as a +10.5 dog. BC’s on a roll. Saskatchewan’s also on a roll, though. The Rough Riders win and cover.

  • Toronto Argonauts at Montreal Alouettes -1

For the first time this season, Montreal’s favored. The Alouettes should be after their 22-26 loss to Toronto on Oct. 20. Montreal played well enough to win.

Johnny Manziel started for the Alouettes in their last game. He completed 23-of-30. He also rushed for 38 yards on 4 carries. Manziel should have a much better game at home, meaning Montreal takes this by at least 3 points.
