cfl week 3 betting preview

CFL Week 3 kicks off with two “Friday Night Football” games broadcast across Canada on TSN. Check out our CFL Week 3 preview which has what bettors need to know, including the odds, recent trends and the best site to bet on CFL football online.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers +3 at Montreal Alouettes -3 Total Points 50.5

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have had a surprising 2-0 start to the season, and they will face possibly their toughest test yet on the road in Montreal. The Alouettes bounced back from a season opening loss with a lopsided victory over the BC Lions. Since the return of Montreal coach Jim Popp, the Alouettes have been solid at home having gone 4-2 in their last 6 games in Montreal.

Montreal is 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Montreal’s last 5 games
Montreal is 4-2 ATS in its last 6 games at home
Montreal is 4-2 SU in its last 6 games at home

Ottawa Redblacks +4.5 at Edmonton Eskimos -4.5 Total Points 54.5

The Ottawa Redblacks had a dream start to their season with two quick touchdowns against Winnipeg to go up 14-0. However, they would go cold offensively in the second half which allowed a Winnipeg comeback. Now, Ottawa will have to travel to Edmonton, a team which they have historically struggled against as a franchise.

Edmonton is 2-9 SU in its last 11 games at home
Edmonton is 1-5 ATS in its last 6 games at home
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Edmonton’s last 6 games at home
Ottawa is 1-7 SU in its last 8 games when playing Edmonton

Calgary Stampeders +1 at Toronto Argonauts -1 Total Points 54.5

Calgary will be without offensive weapons Jon Cornish and Nik Lewis for this game in Toronto, but are still only +1 underdogs on the road. The oddsmakers are showing a lot of respect the Stampeders, considering these injuries and the fact that Calgary has gone 1-4 in their last 5 games at the Rogers Center.

Calgary is 14-4 SU in its last 18 games
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Calgary’s last 5 games
Calgary is 1-5 ATS in its last 6 games when playing on the road against Toronto
Calgary is 1-4 SU in its last 5 games when playing on the road against Toronto

BC Lions +7 at Saskatchewan Roughriders -7 Total Points 48.5

As evidenced by their recent 5-12 record on the road, The BC Lions are known to struggle when playing away from home. Last week’s embarrassing defeat in Montreal that saw them get shutout in the first half indicates that BC’s road woes will continue this season, which is why they are +7 underdogs against a Saskatchewan team coming off a loss.

British Columbia is 5-12 ATS in its last 17 games on the road
British Columbia is 1-4 SU in its last 5 games on the road
Saskatchewan is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Saskatchewan’s last 6 games
