3-1 Lions Looking for First Home Win

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the British Columbia Lions will rehash their playoff semi-final matchup on Friday when they battle at BC Place. This is the most appealing clash on the Week 5 CFL Schedule. Tonight’s clash will be key in deciding the pecking order in the West.

Oddsmakers have the Lions as 4.5-point favorites. The total is at 55.

The Lions were a 41-26 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. They covered the -3.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score (67) made winners of OVER bettors.

For the 3-1, Lions, Friday’s contest is an opportunity to chalk up home win No. 1. They just come off sweeping a 3-game road trip. After being sharp off the bench last week, veteran quarterback Travis Lulay will get the start. Lulay will make his first start since 2015. The 2011 MOP showed he’s still got something left in the tank in last week’s 436-yard, three-TD performance at Hamilton.

Bombers Looking to Avenge 2016 Playoff Loss

The Blue Bombers were a 33-25 winner in their most recent outing at home against the Toronto Argonauts. They covered the -3-point spread as favorites, while the total score (58) made winners of OVER bettors. The Bombers are 2-1 and are on the road for the first time in 3-weeks.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have started their 2017 campaign on the right foot. They want the world to know that their focus is on winning as they return to the site of their season-ending 32-31 Western Semi-Final loss in 2016.

One of the keys for Winnipeg this week will be finding a rhythm early on offense. The Bombers haven’t done through Week 4.
