Year To Date

-- Favorites are 19-8 SU overall

-- Home teams are 17-10 SU overall
-- Home teams are 15-12 ATS overall
-- The 'Under' is 15-11 overall


BC Lions  (1-6) was paddled at home by  Saskatchewan (3-3) in the second end of a home-and-home, losing 45-18 in Vancouver on Saturday night. The Roughriders are 2-0 SU/ATS in two games against the Lions, and 1-3 SU/2-2 ATS against everyone else. The over is 2-0 against BC, while the under is also 3-1 in the Riders four games against everyone else.

Calgary  (4-2) eeked out a 17-16 road victory against Ottawa  (2-4), which was no surprise considering these teams usually are involved in very close battles. Calgary avenged a Week 1 setback at home against Ottawa. The Stamps are winners of four of the past five, but they're just 1-5 ATS so far this season. Total bettors are also enjoying the Stamps at the window, as the under has hit in four in a row.

For the RedBlacks, their cover snapped an 0-4 ATS skid. After the over went 2-0 in the first two games, the under has now connected in three of their past four. Ottawa averaged 38.0 PPG in their first two games on offense, but they're mustering a meager 12.5 PPG across their four-game skid.

Edmonton  (4-2) added to the woes of  Toronto  (0-6), as the Eskimos froze out the Argonauts by a 26-0 score. The Eskimos have alternated covers and non-covers in each of their first six outings. The under has been very consistent, which you'd expect with the CFL's No. 1 defense, going 4-0 in the past four outings.

As far as the Argos are concerned, they hit a new low with their goose egg in Week 7. They have scored 17 or fewer points in five of their first six games, and they easily are last in the CFL in offense. The Argos entered 2-1 ATS in the past three, but slipped to 2-4 ATS overall on the season.

Last, but certainly not least, Hamilton  (5-1) defended 'The Hammer' in a CFL showcase game against  Winnipeg  (5-1), handing the Bombers their first L of the season, 23-15. The Ti-Cats were well rested, coming off the bye, yet they entered as two-point 'dogs at home. The Tabbies did what they do best, using QB Jeremiah Masoli and the passing attack to thwart yet another opponent. The Ti-Cats are now 5-1 ATS while the 'under' has hit in four of six outings.

For the Bombers, they also failed to cover for the first time this season, falling to 5-1 SU/ATS. The under has connected in two in a row, and four of the past five overall.

Montreal  (3-2)  returns in Week 8 after their bye, looking to improve upon their 4-1 ATS mark.       

Team Betting Notes

-- The Blue Bombers look to shake off their first loss and take out their aggressions on the poor winless Argos. Expect the Bombers to be double-digit favorites on the road. They're 12-3 ATS in the past 15 following an ATS loss, and 22-9 ATS in the past 31 road contests. On the flip side, the Argos are 2-8 ATS in the past 10 overall, and 0-5 ATS in the past five against winning teams. Winnipeg has covered seven consecutive meetings, too, and the over is 7-0 in each of those outings, while going 6-1 in the past seven battles in Toronto.

-- The Ti-Cats look to cool off the Roughriders, who are 2-0 SU/ATS in the past two, albeit against the lowly Lions. The Tabbies have covered five of the past six overall, but they're 1-5-1 ATS in the past seven appearances on a Thursday. The Riders are 4-1 ATS in the past five, but they're 1-6 ATS in the past seven played in Week 8. Hamilton has an awful 4-17-1 ATS mark in the past 22 trips to Regina, while going 11-28-1 ATS in the past 40 meetings in this series. The under is 8-3 in the past 11 meetings, and 4-1 ATS in the past five in Saskatchewan.

-- The RedBlacks are just 1-4 ATS in the past five overall, although they're 26-11 ATS in the past 37 on the road. The Argos are 13-3 ATS in the past 16 games overall, 5-0 ATS in the past five at home and 8-1 ATS in the past nine against teams from the East. However, in this series, Ottawa has covered 10 of the past 14, while the RedBlacks are 6-0 ATS in the past six trips to Montreal. The under has connected in seven straight in Montreal, and seven of the past eight meetings overall.

-- The Esks and Stamps square off in the Battle of Alberta. Edmonton enters 9-4 ATS in the past 13 against teams with a winning overall mark, but they're just 1-5 ATS in the past six on the road. Calgary has cashed in just one of their six games this season, and they're 5-12 ATS in the past 17 against the West. The under has been the rule for both teams, going 4-0 in Edmonton's past four overall, while going 7-1-1 in the past nine road outings. The under has hit in four straight for Calgary, while going 5-0 in their past five against winning teams. The Eskimos have covered in five straight meetings.
