League Betting Notes

-- Underdogs went 4-0 SU in Week 1
-- Underdogs went 4-0 ATS in Week 1
-- Road teams posted a 3-1 SU record in Week 1
-- Road teams posted a 3-1 ATS record in Week 1
-- The 'over/under' went 2-2 in Week 1

Team Betting Notes

-- Ottawa (1-0) opened with a high-scoring 45-37 win at Edmonton (0-1) in a Grey Cup rematch. A big part of the RedBlacks' success last season was their ability on the road, going 4-1 SU in their final five games on the road last season, while covering five of their past six away from home.

-- It was a rare loss at home for the Eskimos. The last time the Esks suffered a home loss was Aug. 21, 2015 against the Tiger-Cats. The finished the 2015 campaign with six straight victories at home, including the postseason, going 4-2 ATS during the span. They'll try again next week when Saskatchewan (0-0) comes to town for their first game of the season.

-- Winnipeg (0-1) was tripped up at home against Montreal (1-0). The Blue Bombers also lost their opener last season against the Tigers-Cats, but rebounded to win their next two on their home field.

-- The Alouettes didn't win on the road last season until Aug. 20 against the Lions, so this was a great start for Montreal. They were just 3-6 SU on the road in 2016, but a respectable 5-4 ATS.

-- Speaking of Hamilton (1-0), they hit the QEW and went up to Toronto (0-1) and humbled the Argonauts by a 42-20 count for an easy road win and cover, cashing +190 on the moneyline. The Ti-Cats were a thorn in the side of many last season, especially Toronto. They went 3-0 SU/ATS in the regular season, and they also won and covered against the Argos in the division semifinals. In fact, Hamilton is 6-0 ATS against Toronto dating back to Sept. 1, 2014.

-- The BC Lions (1-0) were the only CFL team to hold serve at home, edging Calgary (1-0) in a 20-18 defensive slog. It must've been a good feeling for the Lions, as they went 0-3 SU/ATS against the Stampeders last season, including a loss in the division semifinals. The wins snapped a 5-0 SU/ATS run for the Stamps against the Lions dating back to Aug. 1, 2014

Ottawa RedBlacks (1-0 SU, 1-0 ATS) vs. Montreal Alouettes (1-0 SU, 1-0 ATS)
Point-spread: PICK
Total: 54

Game Overview

Ottawa successfully avenged last season’s loss to Edmonton in the Grey Cup title game with Saturday’s win, but it came at a price with quarterback Henry Burris leaving that game in the third quarter with a hand injury. He is currently listed as questionable for Thursday night and head coach Rick Campbell has already gone on record stating that he expects Trevor Harris to get the start.

Montreal has to be happy with its fast start after posting just one straight-up win in the last seven games of the 2015 regular season. Quarterback Kevin Glenn was impressive in his debut for the Alouettes with 332 yards passing and one touchdown throw while completing 30-of-42 passes. Duron Carter was his favorite target with eight catches for 96 yards.

Betting Trends

These two have met six times over the past two seasons and the RedBlacks are now a perfect 3-0 both SU in the last three meetings and 4-0 ATS in the last four games. The total has gone OVER in the last two contests.

Toronto Argonauts (0-1 SU, 0-1 ATS) vs. Saskatchewan Roughriders (0-0 SU, 0-0 ATS)
Point-spread: Saskatchewan -2 ½
Total: 51 ½

Game Overview

The Argonauts will try and win their first game of the year on the road after coming-up short at the brand new BMO Field on opening day. Ricky Ray got the start at quarterback for Toronto in Week 1 and while he ended the game with 282 yards passing and a pair of touchdown throws to Vidal Hazelton, he was pressured all game long and sacked five times. He also fumbled the ball once to go along with an interception.

This will be Saskatchewan’s season opener after last week’s bye. It will quickly try and erase the memory of last season’s three-win disaster with quarterback Darian Durant back at the helm after missing the majority of 2015 due to injury. The Roughriders were also a good team to go against last season with just five victories ATS in 18 games.

Betting Trends

Toronto has gone 7-2-1 ATS in its last 10 road games against the Roughriders and the total has gone OVER in six of the last seven meetings between the two. The Argonauts won both meetings in 2015 SU.

Point-spread: Calgary -8 ½
Total: 49 ½

Game Overview

The Blue Bombers have picked-up where they left off losing six of its last seven games SU in 2015.

Drew Willy did throw for 303 yards and a score and Andrew Harris added 80 yards rushing the ball on 13 carries, but Winnipeg could only find the end zone once in this game.

Calgary will look to bounce back after getting stunned as a road favorite. It was in position to tie that game in the fourth quarter, but veteran kicker Rene Paredes missed a field goal from 31 yards out. Quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell ended the day with 233 yards passing and the Stampeders were only able to add 50 yards on the ground.

Betting Trends

Winnipeg is 1-4 SU in the last five meetings but it has a 3-1-1 edge ATS. The total has stayed UNDER in the last four meetings in Calgary and it has stayed UNDER in four of the last six meetings overall.

B.C. Lions at Hamilton Tiger-Cats (-6, 50.5)

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats look to win their fourth straight home opener when they welcome the BC Lions to Tim Hortons Field on Friday. The Tiger-Cats opened the season in impressive fashion as they posted a 42-20 victory over Toronto, and hope to pick up where they left off by beating the Lions for the fourth consecutive time at home.

Jeremiah Masoli proved to be an adequate replacement for injured star quarterback Zach Collaros, throwing for 318 yards and three touchdowns against the Argos, and looks to pick apart a Lions' defence that struggled in Hamilton's 52-22 win on Aug. 15, 2015. Wally Buono made a triumphant return to the sideline as he guided BC to a 20-18 comeback victory over Calgary. Buono, who is the winningest coach in CFL history, seemed to be heading for a defeat in his first game back since winning the Grey Cup with the Lions in 2011, but Chris Rainey returned a punt 72 yards for the go-ahead touchdown and BC hopes to ride that momentum to its first win at Hamilton since July, 18, 2014. "When you look at Rainey's return that was the difference maker," Buono told reporters. "Going into Hamilton is always going to be tough but if we want to be a championship calibre team we need to win those kind of games."

TV: 7 p.m. ET, TSN

LINE HISTORY: The Tiger-Cats opened this matchup favored by a converted touchdown at home. They have been bet down slightly to the current number of -6. The total has also been bet down slightly, going from the opening number of 51 to the current number of 50.5.

ABOUT THE LIONS (1-0, 1-0 ATS, 0-1 O/U): Jonathon Jennings, who was expected to share snaps with veteran Travis Lulay, played every down but missed several throws downfield as he finished 24-of-42 for 248 yards and no touchdowns in the win over Calgary. Linebacker Solomon Elimimian - the CFL's Most Outstanding Player in 2014 - recorded three tackles in his first game since rupturing his Achilles tendon on Aug. 15, 2015. Special teams ace Rainey, who had two 103-yard kick-return scores against Calgary last season, scored two touchdowns, including a 1-yard jet sweep en route to 157 total yards in Week 1.

ABOUT THE TIGER-CATS (1-0, 1-0 ATS, 1-0 O/U): Hamilton added former Notre Dame and Florida State quarterback Everett Golson to the practice squad Monday after third-string QB Jacory Harris was placed on the six-game injured list last week. "He's a talented athlete with a strong arm and can also pull down the ball and run," Hamilton coach Kent Austin told reporters. "He played at a high level in college and we'll see how quickly he can pick things up." Simoni Lawrence was named one of the CFL Top Performers of the Week after recording seven tackles, two sacks and an interception return for a touchdown in the win over the Argos.

TRENDS:

* Lions are 1-7 ATS in their last eight Week 2 games.
* Tiger-Cats are 1-5 ATS in their last six games versus a team with a winning record.
* Under is 4-0 in Lions last four games overall.
* Over is 5-1 in the last six meetings.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers at Calgary Stampeders (-10, 49)

The Calgary Stampeders look to bounce back from their first season-opening loss in five years when they host the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Friday. The Stampeders blew an 11-point lead in the 20-18 setback against BC to spoil Dave Dickenson's coaching debut, and they hope to avoid losing back-to-back games for the first time since July of 2012.

"This is my first time losing a season opener since I've been here," Calgary defensive back Fred Bennett told reporters. "It should be a wakeup call and I hope this loss puts some fire behind us and we go in the right direction from here." Winnipeg's slew of free-agent signings failed to produce the desired results as they dropped a disappointing 22-14 decision to Montreal in Week 1. The Blue Bombers created a buzz around the league with the additions of all-stars Andrew Harris, Weston Dressler and Justin Medlock but the new-look offence failed to live up to the pre-season hype and Winnipeg fell to its 22nd loss in its last 28 games dating back to 2014. "Of course you want to come out with a win but I don't think there's any dampening of enthusiasm," Winnipeg defensive end Jamaal Westerman told reporters. "It's only a damper that we didn't get the win."

TV: 10 p.m. ET, TSN, ESPN2

LINE HISTORY: The Stamps opened as big 8.5-point home favorites, but bettors still didn't think that was enough with the line moving all the way to -10. The total has been bet down slightly, moving from 49.5 to the current number of 49.

ABOUT THE BLUE BOMBERS (0-1, 0-1 ATS, 0-1 O/U): Dressler caught three passes for 22 yards before being knocked out of the game in the first quarter with a head injury but Winnipeg coach Mike O'Shea is hopeful that he will be cleared to face the Stampeders. Harris, who was born in Winnipeg, was one of the lone bright spots as he rushed for 80 yards in his Blue Bombers' debut and Medlock connected on a 58-yard field goal in the loss to the Alouettes. Winnipeg added former New Orleans Saints' defensive back Terrence Frederick to the practice squad on Monday in an attempt to shore up the secondary.

ABOUT THE STAMPEDERS (0-1, 0-1 ATS, 0-1 O/U): Calgary kicker Rene Paredes, who made 41-of-47 attempts last season, missed two field goals including a potential game-tying kick from 43 yards with 3:43 remaining in the fourth quarter against the Lions. Kamar Jorden had the most productive game of his CFL career as he caught three passes for 73 yards and a touchdown while Lemar Durant had two receptions for 56 yards before suffering an ankle injury in the third quarter. Former Oklahoma Sooners' star Roy Finch impressed in his debut as he finished with 89 kick return yards, including a 59-yard sprint that set up a touchdown in the third quarter.

TRENDS:

* Blue Bombers are 4-0 ATS in their last four versus Western Division opponents.
* Stampeders are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games.
* Under is 4-0 in Blue Bombers last four games overall.
* Under is 4-0 in the last four meetings in Calgary.
