CFL Betting Notes – Week 12
By David Schwab

Saskatchewan Roughriders (1-9 SU, 3-7 ATS) vs. Winnipeg Blue Bombers (3-7 SU, 3-6-1 ATS)
Point-spread: Saskatchewan -1
Total: 51 ½

Game Overview

The Roughriders drew first blood in this two-game series behind a solid performance by quarterback Brett Smith, who is filling in as a third-string replacement. He completed 19-of-25 passes for 211 yards and a score. He also added 59 yards on the ground on seven carries. This was the first time all season that Saskatchewan’s defense held a team to fewer than 27 points.

Winnipeg turned to Brian Brohm as its starting quarterback in Sunday’s loss for the injured Drew Willy. He actually looked sharp throwing the ball by completing 21-of 26 attempts for 184 yards, but the Bombers could not make their way into the end zone through the air. He did manage to score a touchdown on the ground as part of his 22 yards rushing.

Betting Trends

The Blue Bombers have lost four of the five meetings SU on their home field and the total has gone OVER in four of the last five meetings overall.

Calgary Stampeders (8-2 SU, 3-7 ATS) vs. Edmonton Eskimos (6-4 SU, 6-4 ATS)
Point-spread: Edmonton -2
Total: 47

Game Overview

The Stampeders’ win on Monday opened-up a two-game lead in the West Division with a chance to widen the gap even more this week. Not only do the defending champions now have the best SU record in the CFL through the first 10 games, Calgary is 3-1 ATS in its last four games after failing to cover in each of their first six contests this year.

Edmonton is still in solid shape for a spot in the CFL Playoffs, but this week is basically a must-win situation to stay in the West Division race. The Eskimos continue to boast the stoutest defense in the CFL with an average of just 18.1 points allowed, but there has to be some concern on offense after averaging just 20 points over their last four outings.

Betting Trends

Calgary has now covered ATS in the last five meetings and the total has stayed UNDER in five of the last seven games. Edmonton has lost its last five home games against the Stampeders both SU and ATS.
