CFL Odds ‘n Ends Week 15 picks

Last week was a real nail biter once again.  It was the final two games of the weekend that pulled us back to 2-2.  Unfortunately, we suffered only the 3rd loss of the season for Play of the Week (11-3), so we didn’t quite make break even on the cash side for week 14.

This week is a short schedule of just three games, the first of two three-game slates on consecutive weekends.

The only previous time this season we had a partial slate was week 5, and we hit two out of three plays, including the Play of the Week.  Let’s hope we can keep up the success these next two  weekends.

BC v Calgary

I’m mainly expecting hard fought games this week.  For the Play of the Week, I have Calgary on the money line over BC.

It took a heroic late-game drive powered by Nathan Rourke for the Lions to beat Calgary earlier this season.

I expect the men from the west coast to re-find their mojo, even before Rourke returns, but beating the Stamps without him this week seems a bridge too far right now.

This one may be close again, but I’m riding with the Stampeders.

Edmonton v Saskatchewan

I expect a bruising battle.  Its probably going to be low scoring but I’m a bit more confident that, whatever the score, the Elks will hang tough in this one.

I admit, the Chris Jones experimentation, with all its ongoing roster shakeups, can make Edmonton a hard group to bet on, but I’m going to take the Elks and the points, against the spread.

Winnipeg v Hamilton

I like to play the over/under once a week to keep it interesting.  Although I was tempted to play the under in the Elks v Riders game, I decided to do so in this one.

Simply, there are 3 or 4 ways that this could turn out to be a fairly low scoring affair, and when you have that many models pointing in one direction, it becomes a fairly safe bet.

Of course, there is no guarantee that this won’t turn into a touchdown fest, but I’m rolling with the averages and going “under” for this week’s Bombers v Ti-cats tilt in the Hammer.

Recall that on the 3-game weeks my bankroll management suggestion is 50/25/25.
