Odds ‘n Ends — CFL bets, week 14

Well, it was another positive revenue week for Odds ‘n Ends in the CFL thanks to the two outcomes of the Labour Day games.

Had we not seen a four point second half in Regina, we would have had another overwhelming week.

With the Play of the Week sitting at 11-2, it’s been a pretty good season for your friendly prognosticator.

Let’s get to week 14.

BC at Montreal

The Als loss last week seems to indicate that there is some turmoil and it is impacting team performance.

In BC, the Quarterback situation places the ball in Antonio Pipkin’s hands with Vernon Adams, Jr as the back-up on this week’s depth chart.

Of course, Pipkin had his time in Montreal but, should VA see game action, it would make for an even bigger clash.

Despite the Lions’ situation at pivot, I think BC has an edge in talent and I am looking for some big plays from the Lion receiving corps, regardless of who throws the passes.

I’m betting BC to cover the spread.

Toronto at Ottawa

Nick Arbuckle.  That’s it. 2-0 for the Redblacks in back-to-back road games.  Going now against a team where many think he should be QB1 even to this day.

People can laugh if they’d like, but I think both the starting pivots in this tilt are underrated.

Still, having beat the Argos in Toronto with Caleb Evans at the helm, I like the Redblacks to win this week.  And, with the Double Blue barely favoured, I’m going to look to take a little extra cash by taking Ottawa on the money line.

I’m going to hope to cash even more by making this my Play of the Week.

Calgary at Edmonton

Last week we had a winner in the Labour Day Classic, Alberta version, as the Elks covered with the points.

In this week’s rematch I’m going to take the over.  Now that the teams have lots of knowledge of each other, I think it will give an edge to the offences.

I’m betting the over and can see two or three different game scenarios that will get us there. so I’m feeling pretty confident here.

Saskatchewan at Winnipeg

It was a close one last week that was really decided in Winnipeg’s favour by the kicking game.

Having survived the Saskatchewan upset quest in Ridervile, I’m looking for the champs to win with a little more comfort at home.

I’m betting the Bombers to cover the spread.

Hope everyone enjoys another full slate of CFL action, including the Saturday triple header.
