Hamilton Ti-Cats at Winnipeg Blue Bombers (-13)
The Blue Bombers are one of the two best teams in the CFL and are better at every position on the field than the Ti-Cats. With that being said, I still expect a fairly close game as new head coach June Jones has the Cats playing very well at this point in the season. I look for the Cats to scratch, claw and stay in this game for three quarters when the Bombers talent pulls away for the win.
Prediction: Blue Bombers 34 Ti-Cats 24
Saskatchewan Roughriders at Toronto Argonauts (-1.5)
This is a big game for both teams in the drive to make the playoffs. My concern with the Riders is on the offensive side of the ball as they have only averaged 18 points a game in their last 3 contests. The Argos offense, in the same time, has averaged 36 points as Ricky Ray has been on fire and running back James Wilder Jr. gives the Argos a much more balanced offense. This one will be close.
Prediction: Riders 27 Argos 24
Ottawa Redblacks at B.C.Lions (-4.5)
It appears that the Redblacks starting quarterback Trevor Harris will return in time for this game. If he does play, the Redblacks have a great opportunity to get the win here. Lions quarterback Jonathon Jennings has played inconsistently this year and there is no reason to expect this game will be any different. I am going with Harris and I know he will probably be rusty at the start of the game, but I look for the Redblacks to kick it into gear and win this one late.
Prediction: Redblacks 31 Lions 27
Edmonton Eskimos (-7) at Montreal Alouettes
The Alouettes, after a promising start to the season, have turned into a train-wreck on both sides of the ball. The Eskimos are starting to get healthier and with Mike Reilly at the helm, they will be just too strong for the Alouettes.
Prediction: Eskimos 41 Alouettes 10
