cfl week 7 betting preview

So far this CFL season, the West Division has dominated play going 19-8, while the East has struggled going 5-16. According to odds makers, Week 7 should be no different as East teams are all underdogs on the point spread. Check out a betting preview for CFL Week 7 which includes betting odds, stats, recent trends and a breakdown of the games…

Saskatchewan Roughriders -3 at Winnipeg Blue Bombers +3 Total Points 54.5

The 5-1 Winnipeg Blue Bombers have the best record in the CFL going into Week 7. However, none of their wins came against a team with a winning record. The only winning team the Bombers have played was Edmonton, and they were thumped 26-3. The Roughriders have dominated Winnipeg going 11-2 against them in recent play and this is largely why the Bombers still find themselves as underdogs with the odds makers.
