Argonauts, RedBlacks, Tigercats, and Roughriders are ready to wreak football betting havoc this Saturday in week 3 of the Canadian Football League.
Toronto Argonauts vs. Ottawa Redblacks
Date: Saturday, 8th July
Time: 7:00 PM
Venue: TD Place Stadium
Online gambling odds for fans who bet on football:
Toronto Argonauts +4 (-110) 55½ (-110) +155
Ottawa Redblacks -4 (-110) 55½ (-110) -175
The Argos (1-1) are coming off their first loss of the season, 15-28 to the BC Lions on Friday at BMO Field. QB Ricky Ray threw 30 of 45 passes for 327 yards – which was sort of comparatively disappointing, considering how high he set the bar for himself in week 1 – with one TD and one pick. Ray’s TD pass went to Armanti Edwards, who had 131 receiving yards on 10 catches. Toronto’s D did a good job of containing the Lions for three quarters, but the fourth period was their undoing.
The RedBlacks (0-1-1) were last season’s big winners but have yet to pick up their first W this year. Trever Harris went 27-of-35 passing for 425 yards and two touchdowns but Le Rouge et Noir still fell short to nemesis Calgary Stamps 43-39 on Thursday. For what’s worth, though, Ottawa became the second team with three 100-yard receivers; Greg Ellingson (133), Brad Sinopoli (111), and Diontae Spencer (107). More good news for the RedBlacks: that was the last game of the regular season series between the two clubs. According to football betting odds, Ottawa should tally their first win against the Argos on Saturday.
Hamilton Tigercats vs. Saskatchewan Roughriders
Date: Saturday, 8th July
Time: 10:00 PM
Venue: Mosaic Stadium
Odds for fans who bet on football:
Hamilton Tigercats +2 (-110) 51½ (-110) +110
Saskatchewan Roughriders -2 (-110) 51½ (-110) -130
The TiCats lost 15-32 to the Argos in week 1 but had a bye week to think about what they did wrong – such as allowing 506 passing yards (this what we were talking about earlier about Ricky Ray). In stark contrast, Tabbies QB Zach Collaros could only muster 242 yards with no TDs and one interception. Former RedBlack defensive back Abdul Kanneh should be able to make his Hamilton debut on Saturday which in turn should help bolster the TiCats’ defense – though it still won’t be at full strength without Emanuel Davis.
The Roughies (0-2) threw a housewarming party for their maiden regular season game at Mosaic Stadium only to have the Blue Bombers crash and spoil it. QB Kevin Glenn finished 36 of 49 for 377 yards with four TDs, but he also threw two picks and was sacked and tackled at crucial moments during the game. Additionally, Tyler Crapigna kicked a 30-yard field goal of to send the game to a second OT, but then hit the goalpost on a 33 yard attempt which allowed Winnipeg to secure the 43-40 win. This Saturday however the Green and White will have a chance to win their first regular season game in their new open-air stadium, at least according to the football betting odds.
