Edmonton Elks vs. Montreal Alouettes () – 7:30 p.m. ET

This has to break some record for least interesting game of the season, but that doesn’t mean there’s not value to be had.

Montreal suffers from a lack of consistency at quarterback, with a carousel of “on his day he’s good!” guys. Their defence is good enough to keep them in games if they get a decent game from whichever of their QBs is starting on a week to week basis.

Edmonton, without Tre Ford for this game, has a different problem at the QB position – all their options suck. As a Calgary bettor who got the upside of that horrible Edmonton offence after Ford’s injury last week, the Elks are truly dead on arrival without him creating offence from nothing.

I’m not sure Montreal’s all that good, but the Elks without Ford are that bad, so Montreal is absolutely the play here.

Evan’s Bet: Sask ML-Montreal ML (+167) (Placed Monday)

Calgary Stampeders () vs. Winnipeg Blue Bombers – 8:30 p.m. ET

Fortunately after the worst game of the season so far the CFL gives us what should be the best game of the year. Calgary and Winnipeg are the two remaining undefeated teams and they’re going head to head.

Calgary basically had a glorified bye week last week and have yet to play a team with a winning record, with wins over Montreal, Hamilton, and Edmonton twice. The last two Edmonton games have been blowouts, suggesting that they’re rounding into the form everyone expected coming into the season.

On the other side of the ball, Winnipeg has the most impressive win of the season so far, dominating BC last week, but they’ve also played Ottawa twice and Hamilton and Toronto once, a schedule not dissimilar in talent to the weak Calgary slate. With both teams riding elite offences, it’s gonna be a hell of a game.

Winnipeg’s pass rush has been prolific this year, and the one thing that can get Bo Levi Mitchell in a bind is pressure, and I think that will be the decider in this one. It’s gonna be Bombers, especially in front of their best in the league crowd.

Evan’s Bets: Winnipeg -4.5, Sask ML-Winnipeg ML (+191) (Placed Monday)

Best Available Odds: Winnipeg

Winnipeg Blue Bombers vs. BC Lions () – 7PM ET

How on earth is this game a pick’em?

The Argonauts are 1-2 and have beaten Montreal for their only win, and only made the Winnipeg game close because Winnipeg saved all their good offensive plays for BC once they got a lead. The ability to come back in a game when the other team decides to play a prevent defence for the entire half does not make you a good team.

On the Saskatchewan side, they’re just really good at all levels of their defense. Cody Fajardo is putting in a very on-brand season – offensive competence above all else. The only Roughriders loss was in the eastern time zone and the Argos are off a bye, but the Roughriders lost to Montreal because of a defensive and a kick return touchdown. Unless that happens again, this should be Saskatchewan in a rout.

The Roughriders are substantially better than the Argonauts. This line is hilarious and the value is obvious.

Evan’s Bets: Sask -0.5, Sask ML-Montreal ML (+167), Sask ML-Winnipeg ML (+191) (Placed Monday)

Ottawa RedBlacks vs. Hamilton Tiger-Cats () – 7PM ET

This was going to be an easy RedBlacks bet coming into last week with this game penciled in as a great spot for them to get their first win of the season against a Ticats team that is decidedly bad. Throw in the Jeremiah Masoli revenge game narrative, and the fact that Dane Evans– who Hamilton chose over Masoli– is mediocre at best, and it was all lining up for the RedBlacks.

And then Masoli got injured.

This game is still an Ottawa play, but I like it a lot less. Hamilton is undeserving of being a 6.5-point favourite against anybody because they lost to a rookie QB making his first ever career start two weeks ago. Ottawa’s defence is a hell of a lot better than the Elks’, and while it’s fair to have long term concerns about Ottawa’s offence, this week, they should be able to cover.

Evan’s Bets: Ottawa +6.5 (Placed Monday)

Best Available Odds: Ottawa
