Team Betting Notes
-- Toronto (5-2) continues to trend upward. The Argonauts have won four in a row straight up, although their bid for a fourth straight cover was thwarted when Edmonton (1-6) picked up a back-door cover late in Week 8.
-- Calgary (5-2) suffered their first loss since Week 2, dropping a 26-22 decision on the road against the BC Lions (5-2). It doesn't get any easier for the Stamps, as they head east in Week 9 to face those red-hot Argos.
-- Saskatchewan (6-1) got back on track with a 24-21 win over Montreal (2-5). After covering their first five games, the Roughriders have failed to cover in each of their past two.
-- The Alouettes came close on the road in Regina, covering a double-digit spread. They have now covered two of their past three after going 1-3 ATS through the first four games.
-- Winnipeg (1-6) has dropped five consecutive games straight up, and they have failed to cover in three of their past four games. The 'over' has also cashed in three of those four contests, as the defense has failed to show up for the Blue Bombers.
-- After failing to cover in their first five games, Hamilton (2-5) has now posted two straight covers. The 'over' has also hit in each of the past two games for the Ti-Cats after the 'under' cashed in four straight from Week 2 through 5.
