CFL Week 16 Betting Preview & Picks

Friday, Sep 28

  • Toronto Argonauts +13.5 at Calgary Stampeders -13.5
Calgary’s remained the hottest team in the CFL. The Stampeders are 3-1 straight up in their last 4 games. The last time they battled Toronto, they beat the Argonauts 41-7. Does Toronto have a shot to turn the tables on Calgary? Not likely because Toronto’s gone 0-4 in their last 4 games. The Argonauts have also gone 0-3 against the spread in those last 4 games with no spread assigned to their last game, a 29-30 loss to Saskatchewan. Toronto just doesn’t matchup well with the best team in CFL CFL Week 16 Pick: Calgary -13.5

  • British Columbia Lions +7 at Hamilton Tiger-Cats -7
British Columbia and Hamilton just battled on Sep. 22. The Lions beat the Tiger-Cats 35-32. It’s difficult to understand why Hamilton is such a big favorite over BC in the rematch on Saturday. BC’s 3-3 against the spread in their road games this season while Hamilton is 2-4 against the spread in their home games. The Tiger-Cats should win, but it’s impossible to lay the 7 points when BC just beat Hamilton straight up the week prior. CFL Week 16 Pick: British Columbia +7
  • Winnipeg Blue Bombers +6.5 at Edmonton Eskimos -6.5
Are the Eskimos a safe bet in CFL Week 16? Winnipeg heads to Edmonton a more than 6 points underdog, but the last time the Blue Bombers battled Edmonton, they only lost by 3, 30-33. Odds makers must feel that Winnipeg returns to the play that led to a 4-game losing streak before their 31-14 home win over Montreal. The Blue Bombers should improve off the win over Montreal, though, and it’s not like Edmonton’s hot. The Eskimos are 1-3 straight up in their last 4 games. Edmonton shouldn’t do much more in this game than they did in the last battle between these two. CFL Week 16 Pick: Winnipeg +6.5

Sunday, Sep 30

  • Saskatchewan Rough Riders -6.5 at Montreal Alouettes +6.5
The spread seems light because Saskatchewan is 8-5 straight up and Montreal is 3-10 straight up, but the Alouettes have been on fire against the spread. Montreal is a fantastic 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games. Ah, but we must study Montreal’s great ATS record with a keen eye. The 2 losses ATS happened in Montreal’s last couple of games. The Alouettes could go right back to be an against the spread doormat on Sunday. That’s the way to play it. Saskatchewan rules. CFL Week 16 Pick: Saskatchewan -6.5
