Week 1 Notes

Saskatchewan was down a couple of wide receivers which explained the high opening line. Montreal was only favored by 1.5 last season and they were 7 point underdogs the last time these two met. I placed a small wager on Saskatchewan+7 and the under 51. The public pushed this number to -7, as most people over compensated for the missing wide receivers. The main effect that this information had was on the total. The total opened at 50 and was bet up to 51. The under was never in doubt and Saskatchewan missed a 45 yard field goal with no time remaining that almost gave them the outright win.

Calgary looks like the best play of the week. The number was up to -5 as of Thursday evening. Calgary closed at -6 and played from behind most of the way. They tied the score at half and then again to force overtime. they won the toss, but declined the ball first. Ottawa throws a interception and this looked like a brilliant call. Calgary was held to a field goal on a first down at the 7 yard line to go up 31-28. Not like the NFL, Ottawa gets another shot and kicks a field goal to make the final score 31-31.

So far we have seen two games and only 1 point has separated the scoring margin. Dogs are 2-0 ATS.

I caught Edmonton and under, game could have went either way. Dogs are 3-0. I already played Hamilton-3.5 for Sunday and Under 54. Toronto has a new head coach, but he has plenty of experience in this league. Toronto beat Hamilton last week in their pre-season matchup 23-16 and they are a home dog. That's a little scary with dogs barking 3-0 ATS.

Some late information, Hamilton will be missing 2 defensive backs because of injury. This game is not like the Montreal game where odds-makers and the public over compensated for Saskatchewan's injuries. The over has moved from 54 to 55.5 and that may be the play today. Toronto took advantage of the missing DB's and threw for over 500 yards. The score should have been higher, but Toronto settled for field goals on a few drives. The dogs went 4-0 ATS and the totals were 3-1 Under.
