(2-0) picked up an impressive 28-21 victory, dealing
(2-1) their first setback of the season. The Blue Bombers have posted a 2-0 ATS mark across the first two outings, averaging 30.5 points per game (PPG) so far. They have split the totals so far.
For the Eskimos, they're averaging 30.5 PPG through two games at home, but they managed just 21 points in the road outing. The over is also 2-0 in their two home outings, and the under is 1-0 so far on the road. It's something to watch as we continue to go forward, as their next two games are also on the road.
BC Lions (0-3) is struggling, although it's their defense which is holding them back. They fell 36-32 on the road against Calgary (1-1) on Saturday, but it was their first cover of the season in three tries. The Lions have averaged 28.7 PPG through the first three games, which is fantastic offense, but their defense is awful, allowing 36.0 PPG, with at least 33 points yielded in each outing. As such, the 'over' has connected in all three of their games.
Toronto (0-2) fumbled their way through another ugly outing on Monday, falling 32-7 at Saskatchewan (1-2). While they sliced the points they allowed from the first game in half, they're still yielding 96 points through two outings.
The Roughriders have covered back-to-back games after opening with a loss and no-cover in Hamilton (3-0). The Riders are averaging 30.0 PPG through the first three contests, but the 'under' is 2-1. Outside of the Ottawa game, when they yielded 44 points, they have allowed just 30 total points in the other two outings.
Speaking of the Ti-Cats, they're looking like the CFL's best team so far. They steamrolled Montreal (0-2) by a 41-10 count, covering for the third consecutive weekend. Hamilton is averaging an impressive 42.7 PPG, posting 41 or more in two of the three outings. Just as impressive has been the defensive performance, yielding 13.7 PPG, with 17 or fewer points given up in each contest.
