Canadian Football Betting Incitation and Length of Time

June 29, 2017 CFL Football

You won’t want to miss this weekend’s worth of CFL football betting, especially since the NFL is still a ways away.

BC Lions vs. Toronto Argonauts
Date: Friday, 30th June 
Venue: BMO Field

Sportsbook odds for fans who bet on football:
B.C. Lions +1 (-110) 51 (-110) 
Toronto Argonauts -1 (-110) 51 (-110)

The Lions opened their 2017 season with a 27-30 loss to the Edmonton Eskimos on Saturday. Jeremiah Johnson and Travis Lulay scored a rushing TD to help rally from a two-score deficit in the fourth period but fell to late-game field goal. QB Jonathon Jennings tossed for 264 yards with no picks but no touchdowns either, while no BC player broke the 100-receiving yard mark – Nick Moore coming the closest with 98 on five catches. 

The Argos avenged last season’s opening game loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats with a 32-15 rout on Sunday. Signal-caller Ricky Ray completed 32 of 42 attempted passes (78%) for 506 yards with one TD pass to DeVier Posey – who posted 147 receiving yards – and no interceptions. SJ Green and Jeff Fuller had 124 and 104 receiving yards, while Cody Fajardo added a rushing TD. 

Montreal Alouettes vs. Edmonton Eskimos football betting preview
Date: Friday, 30th June 
Venue: Commonwealth Stadium

Sportsbook odds for fans who bet on football:

Montreal Alouettes +8½ (-110) 48½ (-110) 
Edmonton Eskimos -8½ (-110) 48½ (-110)

The Alouettes held off the Saskatchewan Roughriders 17-16 on Thursday thanks to a missed field goal by Crapigna with no time remaining. Former Roughies and current Larks QB Darian Durant threw 20 of 31 for 233 yards with two TD passes, which was his way of saying baise-toi to Saskatchewan head coach and general manager Chris Jones who released him during the offseason. 

As hinted above, the Eskies conceded a two-score lead but Quarterback Mike Reilly connected with Brandon Zylstra for a 76-yard gain and set-up a game-winning Sean Whyte field goal with not time on the clock. Reilly finished 20 of 28 for 315 yards and two TDs, while RB John White had 104 yards and Zylstra added 152 receiving yards. Former LA Rams wide receiver proved to be a big fish in a small pond with 110 yards and a touchdown on four catches.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers vs. Saskatchewan Roughriders football betting preview
Date: Saturday, 1st July
Venue: Mosaic Stadium

Sportsbook odds for fans who bet on football:
Winnipeg Blue Bombers -1 (-110) 49½ (-110) 
Saskatchewan Roughriders +1 (-110) 49½ (-110)

In addition to ruin the day he let Durant go, Chris Jones will have to work on avoiding costly mistakes late in the game. Crapigna made three field goals but missed what would have been the go-ahead score, and QB Kevin Glenn completed 31 of 44 passes for 298 yards and a touchdown but also tossed a pick in the fourth quarter – one of two second half TOs for the Roughies. 

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers will kick off their season with this game; they had a bye in Week 1.
