CALGARY STAMPEDERS (1-2) @ WINNIPEG BLUE BOMBERS (2-1)
First things first. I am 6 losses and 0 wins with my Canadian Football League (CFL) selections this weekend heading into this game .
Did you fade? Did you follow? Or were you smart and read the article(s) for entertainment purposes only?
So I will attempt to make things interesting and make 5 selections plus the final score prediction on what will be the final contest of the weekend.
Before doing so, here is a quick literature background of the teams involved this evening:
The Stamps have historically dominated this sometimes Eastern, but currently Western rival (CFL history is colorful to say the least). However, Winnipeg did win the last time these two teams met in 2019 (yes, way back in 2019 before the world circus came to town, but I digress). How have the red & white fared so far this year? Well... they defeated the Argonauts 33-29 week 1 then suffered a 15-9 setback to the Lions (B.C. in western Canada, not the team from Michigan) in week 2. Both games were at home. In week 3, they staved off the Als 28-22 in their home opener.
The Bombers won 19-6 in their home opener, hosting the Ti-Cats in week 1. They followed that with another home victory 20-7 over the Argos in week 2. They were finally defeated on the road in the second game of a home & home series in week 3 by a score of 30-23.
Now that I have demonstrated my writing skills on full display above, please acknowledge it is quite evident from my previous 6 selections I have no idea what is going on this weekend in the CFL so I am going to utilize some guess work for my final CFL plays of the weekend and hope for "Lady Luck" to slap me on the back as a gesture of a job well done.
So without further adieu, here are my 5 picks complete with score prediction:
Take the Blue Bombers -240, -6 1/2 (-115), TTO 25 1/2 (-130), Stampeders TTO 19 (-110) & the game OVER 45 (-105)
Final Score Prediction: Stamps 30, Blue Bombers 42
Good luck and have a great night everyone :)
