CFL Week 11 preview: Blue Bombers, Lions look to make first place their own

Week 11 of Canadian Football League action is this weekend, and the playoff race is shaping up.

The Edmonton Elks made headlines in Thursday night’s game when they picked up their first win of the season against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats by a 24-10 score.

With the unofficial road to the Grey Cup beginning on Labour Day, things are heating up in the CFL.

OddsBlue Bombers -235, Stampeders +195

A West Division clash with playoff implications, Winnipeg (7-2) needs to win to hold onto the top spot where they are tied with the BC Lions.

Calgary (3-6) is on the playoff bubble thanks in part to the league’s crossover rule, which allows a fourth-placed team to qualify for the playoffs ahead of the third-placed team in the other division if the fourth-placed team has more points.

So, it might be more of a must-win for the Stampeders.

Winnipeg is a 4.5 point favorite and is -110 to cover the spread, while the Stampeders are -115.

The Blue Bombers are -235 on the money line, while Calgary is +195.

The over/under is 47.5 and both the over and under are priced at -110.

Odds (To Win Outright):Alouettes -145, Redblacks +125

Two East Division teams meet on Saturday when Ottawa (3-6) hosts Montreal (5-3).

A Montreal win would see them inch closer to the first placed Toronto Argonauts.

Ottawa, on the other hand, wants to separate themselves from the Tiger-Cats, who are also 3-6 and at the bottom of the East Division.

Those two teams also have to watch out for the Stampeders, who could snag the last playoff spot due to the crossover rule.

Montreal is -110 to beat the 2.5 point spread, while the Redblacks are -110.

The Alouettes are -145 on the money line while Ottawa is +125.

Odds (To Win Outright):Lions -450, Roughriders +350

Back to the West Division, the joint-first-placed Lions (7-2) play the third-placed Roughriders (4-5).

A Roughriders win would help solidify their playoff spot, while BC wants to keep pace with—or leapfrog—Winnipeg in the standings.

BC is a 9.5 point favorite and is -115 to cover the spread, while Saskatchewan is -105.

The over/under is 45, and both over and under are priced at -110.

BC is -450 on the money line while Saskatchewan is +350.
