Edmonton has been winless so far this season, but they will win a game at some point, and this looks like it could be the week they get a breakthrough win against a banged-up Tiger-Cats team. Last week, Edmonton blew a 22-0 lead against the Blue Bombers, if they play with the same intensity, that will at least cover the spread.
After opening its season with three consecutive losses, Hamilton has shown signs of promise this year. They are currently 5-5 against the spread, and four out of their past five games have gone under totals.
Hamilton never anticipated third-string quarterback Taylor Powell would see much playing time, but injuries have necessitated his inclusion onto the field. In Hamilton’s last game versus Buffalo, he made two interceptions while throwing for 202 yards passing.
For Hamilton to keep winning games, they must find ways to provide better support for Powell. Their defense has allowed 28 points per game, while their offense ranks seventh in CFL scoring 20 points per game.
Edmonton hasn’t enjoyed much success on either side of the ball this season. Anybody making Elks vs. Tiger-Cats best bets will see they sit near the bottom in nearly all categories, producing 14.9 points per game on average and sitting towards the bottom overall in points scored per game.
Edmonton currently ranks second-to-last among scoring defenses, allowing an average of 27.8 points per game. Elks quarterback Tre Ford did an outstanding job directing play last time out, completing 12 out of 16 passes for a touchdown. Edmonton fell to Hamilton 37-29 during their initial meeting between these teams.
These are the two worst teams in the CFL at this moment in time. Hamilton is rolling with a third-string quarterback, and the Elks have struggled all season long. The Elks have gotten a jolt of energy with third string QB Tre Ford and I think they will at least cover the -5.5 points. I think they have a very real shot to win this game also. Take the Elks +5.5.
