Slam Dunk picks: Dogs getting dollas

The dogs are primed to bark in Week 2 and it means money can be made.

Public perception has run rampant for the teams who enter the second week of the regular season 1-0 and it’s created value in the lines.

Saskatchewan Roughriders at Ottawa Redblacks
Thursday, June 20, 7:30 p.m. EST

Ottawa shocked the world by beating Calgary on home turf, but the Stamps are notoriously slow starters. Dominique Davis threw four interceptions and it should have been more, there were other dropped balls by defensive backs – mistakes that didn’t show up on the stats sheet.

Saskatchewan’s defence frustrated Ticats quarterback Jeremiah Masoli and with the Riders stout unit yards and points will be hard to come by for the Redblacks. Craig Dickenson’s group deserved a win in the Hammer, the odds swing back in Saskatchewan’s favour.

Line: Redblacks favoured by 4.5 points
Pick: Saskatchewan
Bet: $22 spread bet returns $20

B.C. Lions at Edmonton Eskimos
Friday, June 21, 9 p.m. EST

Mike Reilly return game, in a comfortable setting, following a two-interception game – put your cash on the highest paid payer in the league.

Line: Eskimos favoured by 4 points
Pick: B.C.
Bet: $22 spread bet returns $20 and $20 money line bet returns $52

Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Toronto Argonauts
Saturday, June 22, 4 p.m. EST

Corey Chamblin and his staff were fortunate to have game film on the Ticats to study. That combined with an unknown about the new-look Argos who have the potential to be an improved bunch make the double blue equal green.

Line: Ticats favoured by 3.5 points
Pick: Toronto
Bet: $22 spread bet returns $20

Season record against the spread: 2-2
