Canadian Football League: Wager on Football That Counts

Canadian Football League: Wager on Football That Counts

While we have our fingers all over the pulse of the National Football league preseason happenings, we are still on top of the action going on over in the Canadian Football League. Today we preview and predict the Edmonton Eskimos vs Ottawa Redblacks battle scheduled for 7:30 PM ET on August 15, 2014, from TD Place Stadium in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Back the visitors from the West here!

Ottawa Redblacks: Look like CFL expansion squad

Following three straight loses, to Hamilton, Saskatchewan and Calgary by a 109-54 combined count, Ottawa looks very much like the expansion squad that they are. A patchwork group of castoffs from other CFL teams, reality must be starting to set in for the Redblacks. While appearing to battle hard every week, Ottawa has little to show for their efforts as the offense averages 18 PPG while their defense is giving up 31.5 PPG. Ottawa lost 27-11 in Edmonton during CFL Week 3 action.

Edmonton Eskimos: Fine tuned defense is ready to tune in the Redblacks

Having outscored their opponents by a combined 163-107 count en route to a 5-1 record, Edmonton is a tie-breaker behind Calgary in the race for first in the CFL West division. Defense is the name of the game in the Alberta Capital as Edmonton leads the CFL in most of the key defensive stat categories. That includes first downs and yards allowed plus pass defense while allowing just 17 points per game.

CFL Week 8 Prediction: Although we expected the price to be a little higher, the Green and Gold are road chalk in this contest. Edmonton easily handled Ottawa in their first meeting and they will repeat that preformance tonight. Lay 300 units on the 6.5 (-108) spread price posted at the SportsBetting.ag sportsbook and roll with the Eskimos in this CFL Week 8 contest. NFL Fans are advised to stay tuned!
