CFL Week 17: Free Football Picks With Teams Looking To Clinch

Edmonton Eskimos at Hamilton Tigers-Cats

Friday, October 04, 2019 – 07:00 PM EDT at Tim Horton’s Field

Following a straight-up four-game losing streak, Edmonton was able to grind out a 21-16 road win against Ottawa on Saturday as a seven-point favorite. The Eskimos are an even 7-7 SU on the year but just 4-10 ATS. Trevor Harris remains out of the lineup at quarterback with Logan Kilgore taking his place. Kilgore threw for 223 yards and a score against the RedBlacks.

Hamilton is 11-3 SU (9-4-1 ATS) and one win away from clinching the East. The Tiger-Cats hammered Winnipeg 33-13 last Friday as five-point road underdogs. They are 6-0 SU and 4-1-1 ATS at home this season. Two weeks ago, Hamilton beat Edmonton 30-27 on the road as a slight 1.5-point favorite, but this time around will not be that close.

Betting Pick: Take Hamilton -6 points with 5Dimes

Calgary Stampeders at Montreal Alouettes

Saturday, October 05, 2019 – 04:00 PM EDT at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium

Calgary Goes on The Road to Avenge an Earlier Loss to The Alouettes

The Stampeders went into last week’s bye with a SU four-game winning streak while going 2-1-1 ATS. They will be looking to avenge a 40-34 loss to Montreal on Aug. 17 closing as five-point home favorites. The big difference this time around will be Bo Levi Mitchell at quarterback. He missed a number of games due to injury, but he has thrown for 1,732 yards and eight scores in the six games he did start.

Montreal needs just one more win to clinch its first playoff berth since 2014. It is coming off a 25-23 loss to BC as a six-point road underdog. Vernon Adams Jr. had to sit that game out at quarterback due to a one-game league suspension. He is expected to be back in the lineup for Saturday’s inter-division tilt. Each team’s quarterback should be able to light things up on the scoreboard.

Betting Pick: Take OVER 51.5 points with 5Dimes

Winnipeg Blue Bombers at Saskatchewan Roughriders

Saturday, October 05, 2019 – 07:00 PM EDT at Mosaic Stadium

Winnipeg Eyes The Season Series Edge Against West Division Foe Saskatchewan

Winnipeg has lost its place at the top of the West Division standings with three SU losses in its last three games. It continues to forge on with its quarterback Trevor Harris sidelined due to injury. In his place, Chris Streveler has thrown for 1,002 yards with six touchdown passes against eight interceptions.

The Roughriders moved into a tie for first in the West with Calgary after beating Toronto 41-16 on Saturday as six-point road favorites. Their only loss in their last nine games was on the road against Winnipeg in a 35-10 loss as 2.5-point underdogs. Saskatchewan has failed to cover in three of its last four games, but it is 6-3 ATS this season when closing as a favorite. Lay the points and take to home team winning the rubber match in the three-game season series.

Betting Pick: Take Saskatchewan -6 points with 5Dimes
