    CFL Week 7 Predictions

    CFL Week 7 Predictions

    CFL Today's Games

    Last week the West flexed their muscles over the East once again as they went 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS over their counterparts from Eastern Canadian cities. Those results were punctuated by a historically embarrassing 60-1 loss by Hamilton in Calgary, and the winless Tigercats have it tough again this week as they stay in Alberta to play the undefeated Edmonton Eskimos.

    Hamilton is the only East team that's looking to get it done on the road this week, as the other two games that fit that mould are Calgary in Toronto on the night of August 3rd, and Ottawa hosting Winnipeg the very next evening. From a straight up moneyline standpoint, Ottawa clearly has the better shot at winning this week (they are the only one of the two laying points at home), and with the week of rest they've had after a grueling stretch in the schedule, Ottawa makes my card.

    The lone non-East vs. West game features the BC Lions again, as after falling to the Eskimos in Edmonton last week, the Lions are back at home to host the Roughriders. Saskatchewan looked pretty good last week - especially in crunch time - as they came back in the final frame to beat Toronto 38-27 - but they are also still searching for ways to bring the explosive offense they get at home (38.33 PPG)  on the road with them. 

    Canadian Football League Picks Week 7

    Last week it was a winning week for my free betting picks (2-1 ATS) and we had a shot at sweeping the week, but then the horrible Hamilton Tigercats started their game and any hope of a perfect week was gone in a flash. Hamilton at +14 on the point spread is quite tempting this week simply from the narrative that absolutely nobody will be on them against after last week's performance, especially on the road against the lone unbeaten team left in 2017. Edmonton could easily take that game lightly enough to give Hamilton point spread backers the cover, but until Hamilton shows me something, I'm not going back to that well yet.

    There is no doubt that the Ottawa Redblacks enjoyed their time off last week after their last-second loss in Toronto on Monday night concluded a three games in 11 days stretch. That's a grueling schedule for any football team to endure, and the defending Grey Cup champions should look a lot fresher this week. The Redblacks are on a 5-2 ATS run after a week off, have covered the number in seven of their last eight games overall, and need to start stringing some wins together to get back in the East Division race.

    Winnipeg was able to orchastrate their own 4th quarter comeback last week after falling victim to one in Week 5, but while many have the Blue Bombers climbing up the CFL power rankings, I'm still not sold on this team. Winnipeg is getting next to nothing from their running game, and when you become a one-dimensional attack in professional football, it's only a matter of time before the losses - SU and ATS - start to pile up.  

    Ottawa's secondary is known for their ball-hawking skills back there and should QB Matt Nichols be airing it out all over the yard for Winnipeg again this week, that Redblacks back end of the defence will be waiting. As much as both sides would love to get the W here, it's definitely more critical to Ottawa at this stage of the season. With the point spread being less than 3 points, it's basically a game where if you pick the outright winner correct they will more then likely cover the spread, so give me a rested Ottawa team at home.

    If you tuned in for last week's selections you'll know that much of the basis behind the 'over' play in the Toronto/Saskatchewan game was simply because the Roughriders were at home. Saskatchewan is now a perfect 3-0 O/U at home this year and this will be their third venture out on the road where they are 0-2 O/U. Backing this trend added a unit to our bankroll last week, and I'm not about to get off of it this week.

    From B.C's persepective, they may be 4-2 SU on the year, but they've got to tighten things up a lot on defence. They've had two straight weeks of allowing 37+ points and three straight of giving up 26 or more and that has to improve quite a bit if the Lions want to reach their ultimate goals. Thankfully, this is a good spot for them to do so with the Riders averaging 13 PPG on the road, as this game shouldn't come close to threatening this totoal. 

    It always feels good to come off a winning week in CFL betting action and hopefully Week 7 brings more of the same. The great sportsbooks below offer great value on for all the Week 7 CFL Odds, and with the halfway point of the year approaching, jumping on board now and making a few bucks along the way is never a bad idea.
