The Lions have gone 41-17-1 straight up and 31-27-1 against the CFL odds in their last 59 games. Saskatchewan has similar CFL betting numbers as they have gone 37-23 straight up and 32-27-1 against the CFL odds in their last 60 games.
CFL betting on British Columbia at the sports book has seen the team do a lot better out of the division. That makes some sense considering the West has been superior to the East. In the past, British Columbia is a super 59-39-1 against the West but only 64-84-4 against the East. That should tell you to seriously consider B.C. in CFL betting when they are playing non-division games.
Another key CFL betting trend to keep in mind with British Columbia is their favorite/underdog numbers. They are 63-44-1 as an underdog versus the CFL odds at the sports book but only 65-85-5 as a favorite.
BC has been a team that goes under the CFL betting total in recent season. 36 of their 59 games have gone under the CFL odds with one push in the last few seasons.

The Roughriders are just about .500 versus the CFL betting line against Calgary, Toronto, Montreal and Winnipeg.
