Which winless team will finally claim its first victory of the season? Find out in our Elks-Tiger-Cats picks.  

The reigning East Division champion Hamilton Tiger-Cats are winless over the first three games of the season. They have been painfully inconsistent on both sides of the ball and find themselves last in their division.

Also at the bottom of their division are the Edmonton Elks. They opened the season on the wrong side of a blowout against the B.C. Lions. However, unlike the Ticats, the Elks have shown some improvement each week and are poised to get in the win column soon. 

Here are our Elks vs. Tiger-Cats CFL picks for Week 4 (odds via DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook, and BetMGM; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

Elks vs. Tiger-Cats ML Pick

Elks (+260)

Only one East Division team has a win against a West Division opponent, and it isn't the Ticats. Hamilton has already faced three of them in as many games this season. To their credit, the Tiger-Cats forced overtime against the Calgary Stampeders. However, they watched a 24-3 halftime lead evaporate in doing so.

Edmonton also led the Stamps at halftime, ultimately losing it late in the third quarter on its way to a loss. That said, the team has come a long way since its 59-15 shelling in Week 1.          

Edmonton Elks vs. Hamilton Tiger-Cats ATS Pick

Elks +6.5 (+100)

Along with their improved play since Week 1, the Elks have also closed the scoring gap with their opponents. In Week 2 against the Saskatchewan Roughriders, they lost by 10. Last week, they lost by only a touchdown. Even if they don’t find a way to win, they'll keep this game close. 

Edmonton Elks vs. Hamilton Tiger-Cats O/U Pick

Under 46.5 (-110)

Entering Week 4, both of these teams are averaging just 18 points per game. The Ticats have an outlier in their 30-point outing against Calgary. The Elks have seen two of their three games hit the Over. However, in one of those, their opponent exceeded this point total by themselves. 

Hamilton has been in one game Over this mark.  In the other two games, the Tiger-Cats were unable to top 13 points.
