Week 10 CFL Odds
Here are the odds from all the top online sportsbooks in Ontario:
The Week 10 four-game ledger sees the Blue Bombers continue their quest to keep their record unblemished, but that’s far from the only intriguing storyline.
The Tiger-Cats will also be looking to exact some revenge on an Argonauts team that tripped them up in Week 9 with a couple of big plays in the second half. For more relevant betting information for this week, check out the best Week 10 CFL sportsbook offers.
Thursday, August 11: Montreal Alouettes at Winnipeg Blue Bombers – 8:30 p.m. EDT
The Alouettes lost the first installment of this home-and-home series to the Blue Bombers in Week 9, falling by a 35-20 score in a game Trevor Harris threw for only 127 yards and ceded time to Dominique Davis due to his lingering back injury.
The veteran signal-caller did practice in full Monday and is therefore likely to suit up for this rematch.
The Bombers had to navigate multiple interceptions from Zach Collaros for the second time in three games in Week 9, but the veteran also came through with a pair of touchdown tosses.
Just as important, Brady Oliveira continued his development as a legitimate lead back with a 17-92-1 performance on the ground that he complemented with a 35-yard grab, and he’s now averaged 5.9 yards per carry over the last three games.
Despite the fact the Bombers needed 21 fourth-quarter points against Montreal to remain undefeated in last week’s game, oddsmakers have still made them massive 12.5-point favorites for this home rematch.
Friday, August 12: Toronto Argonauts at Hamilton Tiger-Cats – 7:30 p.m. EDT
The Argonauts got over .500 in Week 9 with a 34-20 comeback win over the Tiger-Cats.
McLeod Bethel-Thompson put together an interception-free performance for the second consecutive contest and continue cultivating his burgeoning chemistry with Cam Phillips (4-85-1).
The game also marked the season debut of speedy veteran Eric Rogers (3-30), who gives MBT yet another weapon when dropping back
The Ticats are dealing with the frustration of having lost despite getting a 303-yard effort from Dane Evans and Don Jackson’s most complete game of the season yet, as he amassed 114 total yards and a receiving touchdown.
However, a blocked punt returned for a touchdown and a back-breaking pick-six late sealed Hamilton’s sixth loss.
Oddsmakers are expecting Hamilton to bounce back at home after being done in by a couple of plays, as the Ticats are 2.5-point favorites early in the week.
Saturday, August 13: B.C. Lions at Calgary Stampeders – 7:00 p.m. EDT
Apparently, there’s no team like the Edmonton Elks that can make the Lions look like world beaters, as they blasted Chris Jones’ club for the second time this season, this time by a 46-14 score.
Nathan Rourke set new career highs with 477 yards and five touchdowns while completing over 90.0 percent of his throws, and he continues to make great use of a loaded passing attack that is even stronger thanks to the return of veteran Bryan Burnham from the injured list in Week 9.
Conversely, the Stampeders are usually in good shape as long as they can avoid playing the Blue Bombers, as they once again demonstrated in Week 9 with a gritty 17-3 win over the Redblacks.
As the final score implies, neither team had much to be happy with on the offensive end, even with fill-in running back Dedrick Mills putting on a highly convincing Ka’Deem Carey impression with 132 total yards on 18 touches.
The expectation is the Lions will have an exponentially tougher time than they did in Week 9, as B.C.’s half-point road favorites clearly indicate.
Saturday, August 13: Saskatchewan Roughriders at Edmonton Elks – 10:00 p.m. EDT
The Roughriders had a Week 9 bye after dropping a 32-17 decision to the Lions back in Week 8.
Saskatchewan has lost three in a row after a 4-1 start, and veteran quarterback Cody Fajardo continues to deal with a nagging knee injury. He may, however, have a chance to get both Shaq Evans (ankle) and Kyran Moore (knee) back for this matchup, which would boost the air attack as a whole.
What the Elks’ mindset will be going into this game after their second throttling at the hands of the Lions this season is anyone’s guess.
About everything that could go wrong did exactly that in Edmonton’s 46-14 loss, and the team’s offense clearly misses James Wilder Jr. (shoulder) and what he could do both on the ground and through the air.
Defense does remain the Elks’ biggest Achilles heel, making the fact they’re only a 5.5-point home underdog somewhat remarkable.
