Team Betting Notes
-- For the second consecutive week, the 'over' went 3-1 in CFL play. That's 6-2 over the past two weeks, and the 'under' was 15-5 in Weeks 1 through 5.
-- For the first time all season Edmonton (5-1) saw the 'over' cash in its game on the road against lowly Montreal (1-5). The Eskimos have now covered three of the past four.
-- The Alouettes are in a world of hurt. While they're just one game out of first place in the awful East Division, they have failed to cover four in a row, and five of six overall this season.
-- After stumbling last week at home, Calgary (5-1) took out its frustrations on expansion Ottawa (1-5). The Stamps have alternated covers in each of the past five, and they're 4-2 ATS overall this season. The 'over' also hit for the second game in a row after the 'under' was 4-0 in the first four weeks for Calgary.
-- After a 1-2 SU/ATS start, the defending Grey Cup champions from Saskatchewan (4-2) have rattled off three consecutive wins and covers. Next up is a home game against the Alouettes, so things are looking up in Regina.
-- Winnipeg (5-2) occupied first place for a week, but they slipped up against the Roughriders, 23-17. The 'under' has now hit in three of the past four for the Blue Bombers after the 'over' was 3-0 in their first three.
-- Looking ahead to Week 8, Toronto (2-4) returns from a bye to face Winnipeg in rare Tuesday action. The Blue Bombers pasted the Argos 45-21 back on June 26 at home, but this one will be at Rogers Centre in Toronto.
