Team Betting Notes
-- Saskatchewan (7-1) has won seven of eight straight-up, but after a 5-0 ATS starts, the Roughriders have now failed to cover in each of their past three straight.
-- Edmonton (1-7) has dropped six consecutive games, but they have lost their past four games by a combined 12 points. The Eskimos have also covered two straight contests after starting the season 1-5 ATS through their first six games.
-- Calgary (6-2) has been overshadowed by the Roughriders this season, but they have been impressive. The Stampeders headed east to Toronto (5-3), dropping the East leaders by a 35-14 count. The Stamps are 3-0-1 ATS in their past four games on the road.
-- Hamilton (3-5) has come alive over the past three weeks, and it helps they have faced the bottom feeders of the CFL during the stretch. After starting the season 0-5 ATS, the Ti-Cats have covered three straight. However, the combined record of their past three opponents is 3-21. It will get much harder in Week 10, as Hamiton heads west to meet the BC Lions (5-3).
-- It has been a great idea to fade Winnipeg (1-7) lately. Not only have they dropped six straight games overall, but they are just 1-4 ATS over their past five contests.
-- Montreal (3-5) pulled off a stunning 39-38 win over BC, giving them just their second victory since their regular season opener, and their first win of the season against a team with a winning record. The Alouettes have covered back-to-back games, and they are 3-1 ATS over their past four games after beginning the season 1-3 ATS.
