Team Betting Notes
-- The BC Lions (10-7) put the brakes on a three-game losing streak, tripping up Edmonton (3-14) by a 43-29 score. It was the first time the Lions covered since Sept. 27, breaking an 0-3 ATS slide, and it was their first home cover since Sept. 15.
-- The 'over' continues to be a very popular play in Edmonton games. While the 'under' had cashed in each of their past two games, the 'over' is 4-2 in their past six games, 6-1 in their past seven road games, and 10-4 in their past 14 games overall.
-- Edmonton's loss dropped them to 0-9 inside the West Division. They have one last chance to erase that goose egg in the final game Nov. 2 at Saskatchewan. They lost 14-9 at Saskatchewan in the last meeting Oct. 12, and they're 0-3 SU against the Roughriders this season. However, they are 2-1 ATS vs. Saskatchewan in 2013.
-- Toronto (11-6) clinched the East Division with a resounding 36-21 win against Winnipeg (3-14). The Argonauts have won back-to-back games heading into their season finale at home against Montreal. The game also went 'over', snapping a string of three consecutive 'unders' for the Boatmen.
-- The Blue Bombers haven't necessarily been mailing it in, but they have now lost six of their past seven games straight-up, and they are just 1-5-1 ATS during the span. They wrap up their disappointing season against Hamilton Nov. 2. The Blue Bombers are 0-3 SU and 1-2 ATS against the Ti-Cats this season.
-- Hamilton (8-9) posted a win against Montreal (7-10), but the Ti-Cats were unable to cover. The Ti-Cats are went 2-1 SU against the Alouettes this season, but they failed to cover all three times.
-- It wasn't easy, but Calgary (14-3) won its fifth consecutive game Saturday night against Saskatchewan (11-6). These two Western powers are likely to see each other again in the postseason. The Stamps went 2-1 SU against the Roughriders and 1-1-1 ATS, with the 'over' cashed in two of the three meetings.
