CFL Week 4 Odds

Thursday, June 30

BC Lions vs. Ottawa RedBlacks () – 7:30 p.m. ET

In the first battle of teams that have only played 2 games so far, our information is limited – especially given the RedBlacks have only played one team we think is good, while the Lions have played two seemingly bad teams.

BC has played Edmonton and Toronto very well, but it’s possible that those offences are just not good. Jeremiah Masoli is the best QB that the Lions will have faced, and it’s highly unlikely that the Lions defence will be able to shut down the RedBlacks offence like they just did to Toronto.

On the other side, the RedBlacks defence has been revelatory so far, shutting down the Bombers for two straight games – and while the point totals for the offence have been mediocre, Masoli has thrown for 355 yards per game and 9.9 yards per attempt – numbers that suggest the points scoring will positively regress.

In Ottawa, with the Lions flying cross country, I’m taking the team that’s covered twice against a better team than BC – and taking a punt that they get their first win of the season this week too.

Evan’s Bet: Ottawa +4.5, Ottawa ML (+170) – placed Monday afternoon
Best Available Odds: Ottawa , Ottawa ML

Edmonton Elks () vs. Hamilton Tiger-Cats – 8:30 p.m. ET

Did the Ticats really just pick the wrong QB?

This offseason, they let Jeremiah Masoli go to Ottawa in free agency, thinking Dane Evans was the right choice to be their full-time starter, and he has been not very good. Last in the league amongst current starters in yards per attempt, his counting stats look decent because of one half in Week 2 and garbage time. He has the offence disjointed and inconsistent, he has a 4:6 TD:INT ratio, and has led the TiCats to an 0-3 start. Yet, Hamilton is the biggest favorite in CFL Week 4 odds.

The Elks are bad, and when they get into turnover trouble their problems compound, but their defence is alright – they did a decent job of stopping Calgary when they could defend a full field, and their pass rush was making Mitchell dance more than he wanted last week.

I’m waiting to see if this line moves to a +7, but I’ll bet the +6.5 (or even a +6) if that movement doesn’t come.

Evan’s Bets: No Bet
Best Available Odds: Edmonton , Hamilton

Montreal Alouettes vs. Saskatchewan Roughriders () – 7PM ET

A kick return touchdown, a defensive TD, and a ton of short fields meant that the Alouettes win last week was nowhere close to as impressive – or as repeatable – as the score suggests. That game got away from Saskatchewan in a way that shouldn’t happen without the early deficit, and I still think the Roughriders are better than the Als.

That said, Trevor Harris is much better for the Als offence than Vernon Adams, and the quick passing offence that Harris is playing was effective in shutting down the pass rush that he faced. On the other hand, Cody Fajardo needs to be better this week at getting his passes out early against a hostile rush, but hopefully Saskatchewan will look at the game tape and make sure a tight end or a RB is chipping the rush as it comes.

This is a pure bet on class – I was willing to bet Sasky -2.5 in Montreal last week, I have to bet them -3.5 in Saskatchewan now. I just have to.

Evan’s bets: Saskatchewan -3.5, WIN-SAS ML Parlay (+123) – placed Monday afternoon
Best Available Odds: Saskatchewan , ML

Monday, July 4th

Winnipeg Blue Bombers () vs. Toronto Argonauts – 7:30 p.m. ET

My natural inclination to bet on a team coming off a drubbing comes against my inclination to bet on the Bombers, and I think the Bombers will win out.

They found something against Hamilton last week on offence, and against a much worse defence in Toronto, they should be finally able to roll like the offence they have been in the Collaros era. If that’s right, they’ll be able to slice and dice the Argos, especially after BC just put up a 44 piece.

Will the Argos be quite as bad this week? Presumably not, and if the offence can be better it will enable the defence to get some rest, but it’s not like the Blue Bombers Defence isn’t elite. At the end of the day, the prospect of a home dog is nice, but I was expecting to have a lay at least a touchdown here, so -4.5 is a steal.

Evan’s bets: Winnipeg -4.5, WIN-SAS ML Parlay (+123) – placed Monday afternoon
Best Available Odds: Winnipeg , ML
