The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / CFL Pointspreads, Previews, Predictions for Week 17

CFL Pointspreads, Previews, Predictions for Week 17

CFL week 17 Preview and Predictions
Publish Date: 10/13/2017
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

As we run with this piece, TGT Network sponsor and other sportsbooks have yet to release pointspreads on three of the four week 17 games. That certainly won’t stop The Grueling Truth getting in our Canadian two cents on what could be a decisive week for many teams…

Calgary Stampeders (12-1-1 SU, 9-4-1 ATS) vs. Hamilton Tiger-Cats (4-10 SU, 6-8 ATS)

Point spread: Calgary -5
Who would have ever thought that this would be looking like a competitive matchup just a month ago? Head Coach June Jones has the Ti-Cats playing as well as anybody, and Hamilton’s stunning upset against Winnipeg was led by Jeramiah Masoli throwing the ball and Brandon Banks catching it. Masoli completed an impressive 81.8 percent of his 33 passing attempts for 338 yards and two touchdowns. Banks came down with six receptions for 104 yards and a score. The Tiger-Cats ended the game with 484 yards of total offense.

The Stamps are coming off a bye week and at this point must be the favorite to win the 2017 Grey Cup. With that being said don’t sleep on the hot Ti-Cats this week. The Cats are playing for their playoff lives and will be a dangerous opponent for anybody right now including the Stamps.
Prediction: Calgary 27, Hamilton 23

Ottawa RedBlacks (6-9-1 SU, 11-5 ATS) vs. Saskatchewan Roughriders (8-6 SU, 8-6 ATS)

Point spread: NL
Ottawa’s win last week combined with Toronto’s loss has the RedBlacks in the thick of the East Division title race. Ottawa got a huge effort from Trevor Harris in Saturday’s victory with 380 yards passing and three passing touchdowns. He is now third in the CFL in passing yards (4,104) and second in touchdown throws (26).

The Roughriders helped their postseason chances with a pair of road wins against Ottawa and Toronto in their last two games. They beat the RedBlacks 18-17 two weeks ago as 2 ½-point road favorites. In the win against the Argonauts, Brandon Bridge took most of the snaps at quarterback in place of Kevin Glenn and completed 20-of-28 attempts for 292 yards and two scores.

I like the Riders to win this game out-right, but Trevor Harris will keep this game close all the way to the final whistle.
Prediction: Saskatchewan 24, Ottawa 23

British Columbia Lions (6-8 SU, 5-8-1 ATS) vs. Winnipeg Blue Bombers (10-4 SU, 10-4 ATS)

Point spread: NL
BC is last in the West Division at 6-8, but still very much alive for a crossover spot in the playoffs given current the records in the East Division standings. The Lions have not played with any kind of consistency since early August. QB Jonathon Jennings has been a turnover machine this year, but has taken care of the ball and played better over the past two weeks.

For the Bombers, last week’s loss to Hamilton could have come at a steep cost with quarterback Matt Nichols leaving that game with an injury to his throwing hand. His status for this Saturday remains up in the air, but it is looking more and more like he will be available to play. Backup Dominique Davis connected on nine of his 14 passing attempts for 84 yards in relief. Nichols is fourth in the CFL in passing and he leads the league in touchdown passes with 27.
Prediction: Winnipeg 31, B.C. 23

Toronto Argonauts (7-8 SU, 6-9 ATS) vs. Edmonton Eskimos (8-6 SU, 5-9 ATS)

Point spread: NL
The Eskimos may have resurrected their season with Monday’s win and actually still have a shot to lock up the No. 2 seed in the West if they can win out and get some help closing the gap with Winnipeg. Mike Reilly continues to lead the CFL in passing yards with 4,546, adding 286 yards to that total against Montreal. He left the game in the fourth quarter will a lower body injury, but remains listed as probable for Saturday.

The Argonauts on the other-hand saw their current winning streak snapped this past week and need a win in this game to continue to control the East division playoff race. The emergence of James Wilder Jr. has given the Argos a more diverse attack and this team needed that diversity in the worst way.

Prediction: Edmonton 34, Toronto 24
