We’re back, baby! The CFL has returned for another year of summer football with nine teams battling for the 110th Grey Cup. Through the 21 weeks of the regular season, we’ve got you covered by deep diving into each game to back up our expert picks. 

Current Record: 11-4 (+6.25 units)

Thank God it was a 3-game week because I cracked under pressure and didn’t hit a single pick. Montreal’s offense choked and put up three points to give my OVER absolutely no chance. And after giving Edmonton the benefit of the doubt, it failed me. So, as promised, I will never ride with them again. 

So, what’s on tap for Week 5 CFL odds? Let me tell you what I’m thinking.

CFL Week 5 Picks & Best Bets

With Week 5 around the corner, we’re starting to get a proper look at this year’s groups. Here are my predictions for Week 5:

Edmonton vs Saskatchewan

Team Spread OVER/UNDER Moneyline
Edmonton Elks +7.5 (-115) O 44 (-115) +265
Saskatchewan Roughriders -7.5 (-105) U 44 (-105) -330

Pick: Roughriders -7.5 (-105)

Edmonton (0-4) couldn’t push through for a win last week even though I was convinced they were due. Clearly, enough still isn’t enough for the Elks, who continue the search for their first win of the season. 

Edmonton has already met Saskatchewan (2-1) in Week 1, which ended in a 17-13 loss for the Elks but their closest finish so far this year. It’s been a revolving door of quarterbacks for Edmonton, who have announced that Taylor Cornelius will start at Mosaic Stadium. The Elks have yet to cover and as promised, I refuse to ride with them until proven otherwise. 

Meanwhile, the Riders are feeling rejuvenated from their bye week and are desperate to pick up their first win at home of the season. 

Calgary vs Winnipeg Prediction 

Team Spread OVER/UNDER Moneyline
Calgary Stampeders +8.0 (-115) O 46.5 (-110) +265
Winnipeg Blue Bombers -8.0 (-105) U 46.5 (-110) -330

Pick: Blue Bombers -8.0 (-105)

Winnipeg (3-1) fumbling two home games in a row? No chance. The Bombers defense, which allows a respectable 22.8 PPG, will take advantage of pressuring a shaky Jake Maier. The Calgary (1-2) quarterback has given up five interceptions while Winnipeg has forced 10 turnovers and pocketed 14 sacks.

I expect Most Outstanding Player Zach Collaros to have full focus storming onto IG Field. Last week, he tossed a lowly 177 yards for two touchdowns. Which might sound impressive to teams like Edmonton, but that’s just the Collaros we’re used to.

Again, I expect a strong performance from the Bombers this week. 

Ottawa vs hamilton Prediction 

Team Spread OVER/UNDER Moneyline
Ottawa Redblacks +2 (-110) O 44.5 (-110) +110
Hamilton Tiger-Cats -2 (-110) U 44.5 (-110) -132

Pick: Redblacks +2 (-110)

Ottawa (1-2) showed up in last week’s meeting with Edmonton, tallying up the scoreboard with a 26-7 victory. Good vibes got even better for the Redblacks ahead of Week 5. After being plagued with a tough leg injury, quarterback Jeremiah Masoli is making his anticipated return to face his old team. 

Masoli’s comeback comes a few weeks earlier than expected, so it’ll be interesting to see how he responds in a game setting. Regardless, the comfort of having a steady signal-caller will sure give the Ottawa, already feuled by its exciting win in Week 4, bench a boost. 

Hamilton’s (0-3) excitement for the Bo Levi Mitchell, now on the injured list, era has officially ended. The Ticats sit at the bottom of the league by allowing 37.3 PPG and also roam near the bottom in offense, too (19 PPG). It’s a sinking ship. Stick to the Redblacks here. 

Montreal vs b.C. Prediction 

Team Spread OVER/UNDER Moneyline
Montreal Alouettes +7.5 (-120) O 45.5 (-110) +255
B.C. Lions -7.5 (EVEN) U 45.5 (-110) -330

Pick: Lions -7.5 (EVEN)

If you saw my video, you know that this is a hard matchup for me. I was born into being a Montreal (2-1) fan, but B.C. (3-1) has a piece of my heart. 

The Als have surprised me this season. QB Cody Fajardo has looked relatively promising with over 800 passing yards and six total touchdowns. WR Austin Mack has been super exciting to watch, earning over 300 yards to rank second in the CFL. 

Montreal’s defense has been a massive improvement from last season, now ranking first by allowing just 13.7 PPG. But, as we know, the Lions (3-1) can have a lethal offense when it wants to. We didn’t see it last week too much, but we know it’s there. 

Vernon Adams Jr. struggled in turnover land last week, throwing six interceptions. But, he also threw nearly 400 yards and a trio of touchdowns. It gave me whiplash. B.C.’s defense can also shine, recording 14 sacks so far this year. So, I guess my Alouettes-loving family is going to disown me. But, I’m siding with the Lions.

 

How To Bet On CFL Betting Odds:

While you can bet on spreads and point totals, one of the easiest ways to bet on CFL betting odds is through a moneyline. This moneyline bet means you simply pick which side you think will win between the favorite (signaled with a minus sign) and the underdog (signaled with a plus sign).

A CFL moneyline of +200 means that you would win $200 on a successful $100 wager. That’s also equivalent to fractional odds of 2/1, decimal odds of 3.00 and implied odds of 33.33%. A negative moneyline of -200 means that you would have to wager $200 in order to win $100 on the favorite.
