Hamilton (4-5) was back in action after a bye, topping Edmonton (6-4) by a 25-24 count in the Hammer. The Eskimos had the unenviable task of playing five days later after a win at home on Aug. 18 against Montreal (2-8). It has been rough for the Esks lately, allowing 26.3 points per game (PPG) across their past three.

As far as the Ti-Cats are concerned, they have won two of their past three straight-up, while going 2-1 ATS in the past three as well. The 'under' is 5-1-1 over their past seven games despite the fact they have averaged 29.3 PPG in their past three.

For the Alouettes, they snapped a six-game losing streak with a victory over rival Toronto (3-6), as QB Johnny Manziel earned his first victory under center. They scored 25 points to set a new season best, topping the 24 points they posted in their previous game in Edmonton. The Als are suddenly putting it together, and they have covered in a season-high three consecutive games, too.

For the Argonauts, they dropped to 0-4 SU and 1-3 ATS in four trips away from home with their loss in Montreal. The 'under' is also 3-1 in their four forays onto the road. They'll have a bye in Week 12 before a home-and-home with the Ti-Cats in Week 13-14.

Calgary (8-1) snapped back on track after their first loss in Week 10, posting a 39-26 win and cover against Winnipeg (5-5). The Stamps defense has been a problem over the past four outings, allowing 26.5 PPG after yielding just 9.2 PPG through the first five contests. As a result, the under was 5-0 in their first five, and the over is 3-1 across the past four.

The Blue Bombers opened the season with a respectable 5-2 ATS mark in their first seven contest, but they have failed to cover in a season-high three straight. The 'over' is 4-1 in their past five, too, while going 7-3 in their 10 games overall. The D has been especially pitiful lately, allowing a total of 83 points across the past two.

The upward ascent for Saskatchewan (5-4) continued with a 24-21 road win against the BC Lions (3-5). They'll look for a season-high third straight when they kick off a home-and-home with the Bombers on Sept. 2.
