    CFL Today's Games

    It doesn't matter what division you look at there is a logjam in the standings, albeit with very different W/L records in the respective divisions. Calgary leads the way out West once again with a 9-1 SU record, but Winnipeg (8-3 SU), Edmonton (7-4 SU) and B.C (6-5 SU) all could have something to say about that over the next month or so. Winnipeg gets to rest up at home on their bye week, and you know they'll be looking for the B.C Lions to pull off the upset in Calgary.

    Over in the East division we've got the Toronto Argos (4-7 SU) and Ottawa Redblacks (4-7 SU) tied for 1st place with Montreal (3-8 SU) and Hamilton (2-8 SU) following in behind. Ottawa just lost starting QB Trevor Harris for a significant amount of time, making a strong finish by them a bit more difficult, but from top to bottom this division really is still up for grabs. Three of those four teams have games at home in Week 13, so for all the quality we've got in the West, it's this East Division race that might be the more exciting one.

    The action gets started on Friday night with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Hamilton to take on the Tigercats. Hamilton is on a bit of a roll having won two straight games entering play this week and they are still catching points as home underdogs.

    Saturday has a double-header for fans with Edmonton in Toronto for the early game and B.C in Calgary in the evening. Toronto is another team from the East listed as a home underdog this week as it's gotten to the point where bettors are almost blindly betting any West team when they are up against the East. The B.C/Calgary game should be interesting now that BC has to go with QB Jonathon Jennings - Travis Lulay was lost for the year - and Calgary, who got a scare from Edmonton last week, looks to keep on rolling.

    Finally, everything concludes with the Ottawa/Montreal game in Montreal on Sunday afternoon, as the Redblacks give the keys to the offense over to Drew Tate. Tate has plenty of experience in the CFL, but it's been some time since he's seen signficant action as a starter. Montreal made a big move this week too when they fired their head coach and defensive co-ordinator, and as the 3rd East team catching points at home, they'll definitely be one to watch. Let's get right to this week's free betting selections after last week's went 2-1 ATS.

    If it wasn't for a final minute collapse last week, the Edmonton Eskimos would have gotten their revenge on Calgary and ended the Stampeders long winning streak. Yet, what's lost in the final result is the fact that QB Mike Reilly led his team down the field when he needed to on the drive before that to score a TD and take the lead with under two minutes remaining. Although the game didn't turn out like Edmonton fans had hoped, that drive alone is something the Eskimos can hang their hat on to snap that four-game losing streak they are on. 

    All four of those defeats came against West rivals, so seeing a sub-par team from the East for the first time in awhile is like a sight for sore eyes for Edmonton. Toronto has been blown out in both home games against West teams this year and this game may not be any different. The Argos have lost by an average margin of 15 points in those two home games vs. the West and anything even remotely close to that number this week gets us an Edmonton ATS win rather easily. 

    Finally, regarding some trends that support this line of thought, Toronto is just 3-13 ATS when coming off a SU loss in their last outing, and are on a 0-7 ATS run against a team with a winning record. They've also gone 2-6 ATS the last eight times they've hosted the Eskimos, and let's be honest, if Edmonton wasn't on a four-game losing streak this spread would be much closer to -7. Take the extreme value with the Eskimos.

    This game sets up well in a lot of way for Montreal to win SU and I wouldn't hesitate to get that plus-money price when it gets released in the coming days. For one, Ottawa is starting a different QB under center and that brings significant changes in itself. Tate was brought in to be the backup behind Harris this year, but backup QB's are labeled that for a reason and I don't believe you can trust Tate to be laying points on the road.

    Secondly, this game is a double-revenge spot for Montreal as they are 0-2 SU against Ottawa this year. The last time they played it was the Alouettes ugliest game of the year in a 32-4 defeat and there aren't many guys who've forgotten about it. With a new HC calling the shots and hopefully providing a spark, expect Montreal to come out of the tunnel on fire, establish an early lead, pressure Tate into mistakes and win this game SU.
