There will be plenty of CFL football on the schedule as Canadians prepare to celebrate this weekend’s Thanksgiving holiday. First place in the East Division will be on the line on Monday afternoon, when the Hamilton Tiger-Cats play host to the division-leading Toronto Argonauts as betting favourites. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers aim to extend their lead atop the league standings when they open the weekend’s schedule with a visit from the struggling Edmonton Elks. The Calgary Stampeders aim to get back into the playoff hunt as they wrap up a home-and-home series with the Saskatchewan Roughriders as road underdogs, while Monday’s early game features the Montreal Alouettes hosting the Ottawa RedBlacks as favourites to post consecutive wins for the first time this season.

|Calgary Stampeders||+4.5 (1.91)|
|Saskatchewan Roughriders||-4.5 (1.91)|

Toronto Argonauts vs Hamilton Tiger-Cats -5.5
First place in the East Division is at stake as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats host the Toronto Argonauts as 5.5-point favourites in CFL betting at Sports Interaction. The Tiger-Cats are looking to regroup after seeing an epic 13-game win streak on home turf snapped with last weekend’s 23-20 loss to the visiting Montreal Alouettes. The defeat also put the brakes on a two-game surge that briefly lifted the Ti-Cats even with Toronto atop the East Division standings. The Tiger-Cats recent success at home has been key to their continued presence near the top of the Grey Cup odds. With Hamilton’s Tim Hortons Field serving as the host stadium for this year’s Grey Cup game, a first-place finish atop the division would also guarantee them home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

The Ti-Cats’ recent home success extends to recent dates with Toronto. Hamilton has topped the Argonauts in 11 of 12 home matchups, with three of their four most recent victories coming by double-digit margins, including a decisive 32-19 victory on Labour Day.
However, the Argonauts responded with a narrow 17-16 home win just four days later. Overall, Toronto has been a dominant force on home turf, going 4-0-0 this season, capped by this week’s 35-16 rout of the Ottawa RedBlacks. However, the Double Blue have been consistently disappointing on the road, posting just two wins in 21 overall contests since the start of the 2018 season.
The Argos have also failed to cover while averaging just 14 points per game during their current three-game SU losing streak on the road. Expect that trend to continue this weekend against the desperate Tiger-Cats.
The Pick: Tiger-Cats -5.5 (1.91) at Sports Interaction
Edmonton Elks vs Winnipeg Blue Bombers -10.0
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are well-positioned to pad their current five-game SU win streak and perch atop the CFL West Division standings when they host the Edmonton Elks on Friday night as heavy 10-point chalk. The bombers extended their lead over second-place Saskatchewan to four points with a crushing 30-9 road victory over the BC Lions, and have now held opponents to single-digit point totals in three of their past four contests.
However, the Blue Bombers faced a tougher test when they visited Edmonton three weeks ago. Winnipeg was forced to rally from a third-quarter 16-15 deficit on their way to a 37-22 victory. That marked one of the few road bumps in the road for Winnipeg, which has established itself as the clear favourite on the Grey Cup odds entering the second half of the campaign.

As for the Elks, they arrive in Winnipeg riding a three-game SU and ATS losing streak after getting outclassed by Ottawa in a 34-24 road loss last week. Edmonton has now been blown out by double-digit margins on four occasions this season and should expect a similar fate this weekend. Sports bettors taking the Bombers can find the best betting value at Bet99, where Winnipeg is favour by just nine points
The Picks: Blue Bombers -9.0 (1.91) at Bet99
Calgary Stampeders vs Saskatchewan Roughriders -4.5
The Saskatchewan Roughriders aim to solidify their grasp on second place in the West as they host the disappointing Calgary Stampeders as 4.5-point favourites. The Stamps dropped a 23-17 decision in Calgary last week that marks the first of three straight meetings with the Stamps. However, they have been dominant on home turf, winning big in four of five outings, with their lone defeat coming against Winnipeg.

The Stampeders look to make it two in a row for the first time this season and have enjoyed success in Saskatchewan, where they have claimed victory in six of their past seven meetings. Scoring has emerged as a massive issue for Calgary, which has failed to top 17 points in three road dates. However, they should be able to do enough to keep it close in what promises to be a low-scoring matchup with the Riders.
The Pick: Stampeders +4.5 (1.91) at Sports Interaction

Ottawa RedBlacks vs Montreal Alouettes -8.0
Clinging to third place in the East and slender control of a playoff spot, the Montreal Alouettes host the RedBlacks on Monday afternoon as strong 8-point favourites. The Als got a lift with last week’s win in Hamilton, but have been blown out in a pair of losses, capped by a lopsided 27-18 loss to BC as 3-point chalk three weeks ago.

The RedBlacks were unable to keep pace with the surging Argos in this week’s loss in Toronto, and have now failed to top 16 points during a 1-3 SU run on the road. Ottawa has also been blown out in four of five meetings with the Alouettes, but has won seven straight at Percival Molson Stadium. Winning outright may be too much to ask, but the RedBlacks should be able to keep pace with the struggling Alouettes in this Thanksgiving Day matchup.
