Team Betting Notes
-- Toronto (1-0) started its defense of the 2013 Grey Cup with a 39-34 victory over Hamilton (0-1) at Rogers Centre. In Week 2, they travel cross country to meet the BC Lions (0-1). The Argos are 1-4 ATS in the past five meetings, and the under is 14-4 in the past 18 meetings between the two.
-- Calgary (1-0), which came up just short in that loss to Toronto in the Grey Cup, dispatched BC with relative ease in their opener. The Stamps will hit the road for Saskatchewan (1-0) in Week 2. The Stamps are 4-1 ATS in their past five meetings at Saskatchewan, and 5-2-1 ATS in the past eight meetings overall.
-- In the first game of the season Thursday night, Montreal (1-0) picked up a road win against Winnipeg (0-1). As was the case in each of the four games in Week 1, the 'over' connected. Last season, the 'over' was just 6-11-1 in games for the Blue Bombers.
-- As mentioned, Hamilton lost their opener up the QEW in Toronto, but the 'over' did cash. Last season, the Ti-Cats led the way with 12 'overs' in 18 games.
-- In the lowest scoring game of the weekend, Saskatchewan dealt Edmonton (0-1) a home loss, with the Eskimos coming up with just 18 points. The Esks were the lowest scoring team in the West Division last season, and they apparently did not rectify their offensive woes in the offseason. The next lowest total of Week 1 was the 32 points posted by BC in their loss.
