Well Sort Of
Tonight the CFL football season kicks off as the Edmonton Eskimos travel to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The Eskimos finished 3rd last year in the West behind Winnipeg on a tie breaker, but went on to beat the Blue Bombers in the playoffs 39-32 as 3 point road favorites. As far as this game is concerned the Eskimos opened up at -6 and have moved in some books to -7.5.
Winnipeg had a major injury in preseason as starting QB Matt Nichols went down for the season with a knee injury. Insert Alex Ross (Coastal Carolina). I just don’t see how Winnipeg can overcome such an injury so quickly against a very good Eskimos team. We got the line on Tuesday at -6.5 and we took it, but don’t be to afraid of the -7.5. The Eskimos are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 against the Blue Bombers
PICK: Edmonton Eskimos -6.5
