Week 14 in the CFL presented a golden opportunity to cash-in on the total line with all four contests staying well UNDER the closing betting odds. The weather is turning colder in Canada and a number of teams are struggling to score points behind back-up quarterbacks.

It is time to turn our attention to Week 15 of the regular season as teams continue to jockey for position in this year’s Grey Cup Playoffs. I have dug deep into all the facts, stats and figures for all four matchups on the slate to come up with this week’s CFL Two-Team Parlay based on SBR's live CFL odds.


Game 1: Winnipeg Blue Bombers vs. Ottawa RedBlacks

Free CFL Pick on Pointspread: Ottawa -2.5

Free CFL Pick on Total: 45.5


Betting Overview
The Blue Bombers current four-game slide has dropped their straight-up record on the year below .500 at 6-7 (7-6 against the spread). They are in desperate need of a win to stop the bleeding given the level of talent in the West Division. Drew Willy was back at quarterback last week and while he did throw for 303 yards and completed 65.9 percent of his 41 passes, Winnipeg could only manage 11 points in a loss to Hamilton.

Ottawa’s offense has averaged just 15 points a game this season, but things have only gotten worse as the season has progressed. The RedBlacks have failed to eclipse this average in six of their last eight contests. While you probably cannot go wrong with a play on the UNDER in this game, take Winnipeg to get back to its winning ways at the expense of Ottawa.


Betting Trends
Winnipeg is 2-5 ATS in its last seven games overall, but it does have a 4-2 record ATS in its last six games on the road. The total has gone OVER in six of their last eight road games.

The RedBlacks have lost their last five games SU at home and the total has stayed UNDER in five of their last six home games

The Blue Bombers came out on top in the first meeting this season all the way back in Week 2 of the regular season with a 36-28 victory as 3.5-point home favorites. The total in that game went OVER the 53-point closing total line.


Betting Prediction
There is no doubt that Winnipeg is really struggling right now, but this is a perfect opportunity to snap its current losing skid with a SU road win against the RedBlacks.

Game 2: Calgary Stampeders vs. Saskatchewan Roughriders

Free CFL Pick on Pointspread: Calgary -3.5 at 5Dimes

Free CFL Pick on Total: 47.5


Betting Overview
Calgary was stunned by Montreal in a Week 13 loss as a 6.5-point road favorite, but it quickly got back to its winning ways last week with a hard-fought 14-7 win against British Columbia as a 6.5-point favorite at home. It looks like Drew Tate may make one more start at quarterback before Bo Levi Mitchell is finally cleared to play.

The Roughriders have really had issues at quarterback ever since Darian Durant was lost for the season. Tino Sunseri has gotten the call and the results are an uninspired 1-2 SU (0-3 ATS) record in the last three games. Last week in a dismal 24-0 shutout against Edmonton on the road, Sunseri completed just 6-of-12 passes for 53 yards and an interception. Saskatchewan closed as 5.5-point underdogs in that loss.


Betting Trends
The Stampeders are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games overall and 5-1 ATS in their last six games on the road. The total has stayed UNDER in 13 of their last 17 games.

The Roughriders have covered just once in their last five games and they are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games. The total has stayed UNDER in 15 of their last 23 games.

Calgary has dominated this series with nine SU victories in the last 12 meetings, but it is just 1-4-1 ATS in the last six meetings. The total in this West Division rivalry has gone OVER in five of the last seven games played in Saskatchewan.


Betting Prediction
Calgary’s offensive production has taken a hit with Mitchell out of the lineup, but the Roughriders are simply lost without Durant at the helm. You probably cannot go wrong with a play on the UNDER, but my suggestion for your CFL picks is to lay the 3.5 points on the road in this rivalry with a play on the Stampeders in the back-end of this week’s CFL parlay.
