REDBLACKS CFL Football

REDBLACKS and Lions Both Trying to get Over .500

This Friday night’s betting action in the CFL features an inter-division clash between the British Columbia Lions and the Ottawa REDBLACKS. This a 7:30 p.m. kickoff at TD Place.ESPN+ will have all the action in the United States.

VietBet has opened the RedBlacks as 6.5-point home favorites with the total set at 53.5 points. Ottawa is now a 7-point favorite and the total has settled in at 53.

Lions Look for Some Consistency Against the REDBLACKS

The Lions moved to 2-2 on the year. That is both straight-up and against the spread. Last Saturday’s 20-17 upset against Winnipeg as 4.5-point home underdogs assured that. This followed a 41-19 road loss to the Blue Bombers as 6.5-point underdogs in the first meeting in that home-and-home series.

The total stayed UNDER 55 points in the latest win. The scores went OVER in two of BC’s first three games this year.

Travis Lulay returned to the Lions’ starting lineup at quarterback. He did just enough to help his team get a much-needed victory. He put the ball up 41 times and completed 28 passes. This led to 326 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Lulay completed at least one throw to eight different players. Chris Rainey led the way with 71 yards receiving and 43 yards running the ball.

QB Play Has to Improve for REDBLACKS

Ottawa has lost two of its first four games with each of those defeats coming against Calgary. Last Thursday they lost as three-point home underdogs. The RedBlacks were never in the decision of a 27-3 loss. They also lost to the Stampeders 24-14 on June 28 as 7.5-point underdogs on the road.

They are currently 2-2 both SU and ATS. The victories are against Saskatchewan at home and Montreal on the road. The total has stayed UNDER in each of their last three games.

Trevor Harris has been hit or miss at quarterback for Ottawa this season. He should have much bettor success this Friday at home against BC. Last week against Calgary, he was held to 93 yards passing while completing 14 of his 22 passing attempts.

The RedBlacks ran the ball 13 times in that game for a total of just 35 rushing yards. The Offense has to do better than this.

As far as this inter-division tilt, Ottawa has played well and won the games it was supposed to this season. I expect a much better effort this week against BC in a matchup that stays UNDER VietBets’ closing line of 53.
