I'd like to wish everyone here good luck for the upcoming 2012 CFL season. This will be my 4th year on Covers capping the CFL.
I will post all my plays here in the Cfl forum . All my wagers will be between 1 and 5 UNITS.
I'm looking forward to discussion and constructive opinions.

HERE'S TO A SUCCESSFUL SEASON

2009  34-30 ( +16.6 units )
2010  32-21 ( +19.8 units )
2011  36-25 ( +3.6 units )------Tanked on large wagers last year , but still managed to show a profit.
2012   0-0

SASK / HAM OVER 48.5 ( 1 unit )
I'm not big on betting totals in football, but I'll occasionally throw a bet when i feel the O/U is soft. My guess is that 90% of posted totals in CFL games fall between the number 47 and 55. You'll rarely see anything above or below these digits.
I do feel this total is low. TiCats were 5th overall in passing last year with an average 263 yards per game. With the addition of Henry Burris complimenting a  very strong receiving corps , arguably the best in football, I see the Tabbies improving on their 26.7 PPG of last season.

BC -7 ( 1 unit )
Don't like laying significant chalk on opening day, but I just can't see a letdown by the BC LIONS. No disrespect to Calvillo or Ray but Travis Lulay is the best QB in the CFL today..
I think Swagerville is a thing of the past and with Bombers losing RB Chris Garrett  to a season ending lower leg injury this week that doesn't bode well for Buck Pierce. Winnipeg didn't renew Fred Reid's contract this year so this team is very thin in the backfield. Despite what people think, you gotta be able to run the ball in this league. The Bombers were one of the worst teams in the league last season on 2nd down.

TORONTO +1.5 ( 2 units )
This is my largest bet on opening week. I'm going 2 units here and I think that the Argos might end up being the favorite by game time. The Argos finally have a QB in Ricky Ray.   Scott Milanovich is eager to prove himself worthy of being a head coach in this league. He was the brain trust of B2B Grey Cups for the Alouettes. He's certainly got the credentials and a great football mind to go along with it.

CALGARY -2.5 ( 1 unit )
I'll gladly take the home team here , laying less than a FG. Tate no longer looking behind his shoulder. He's been solidified as the #1 QB in Calgary. Montreal secondary is very vulnerable.


GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY,

GL this season to you 44 dimes!

I wanted to post in here so that everyone is armed with this knowledge for Week 1 that all underdogs in Week 1 of the CFL season are 17-3 ATS over the last 5 years dating back to 2007. That's a stat at least worth knowing.

I've said this many times before. I think trends dating back outside the current season is LAZY way to Cap. The information is just non pertinent.  There are so many changes from one year to the next that it's almost impossible just to create a rivalry in this league. I Know many people in the West might disagree with me, but it's a reality. A franchise player like Ricky RAY going to the Argos is a perfect example.

I already bet your 1,3,4 picks yesterday and just looking at who to 6 point tease with B.C....Perhaps Tor./Edm. under.

Glad to see you on the same side on these games.

Hamilton losing the home opener last year to Winn. by 8 as a big fav. scares me from laying points on them with the line opened so low IMO......Even though it went up a point. More comfortable with the Over.

Laying 7 with B.C. is a little risky too since they always seem to get out of the gate a little slow the past few years.

Love the Stamps...MY biggest bet this week.

 

I totally agree with your Stats Theory for CFL.

I have an issue with Covers so I won't be making any threads at this time....Hope you don't mind me putting in my 2 cents worth from time to time.

 

Have a great year.

As always good luck Cold Snap55

We've had several discussions concerning teasers. I'm not a big fan when it comes to betting teasers, you already know this. Here's the problem !! . If i come up with the first team  i usually have trouble finding a second team to go along with it. Not always the case but in week 1 it is.

I love the LIONS in a tease this week ( YOU ALSO SPOTTED THIS )
I don't like anything else though !!! Perhaps the Argos not sure. IF I HAVE TO THINK ABOUT THEN I TELL MYSELF JUST PASS

Words every gambler should abide by.


Nice grab on that Hammy Over. Not sure why the total dropped so much early but it is pushing 50.5 now.

Ricky should do well in Toronto but I think it will take a few games to jell with the team.  JMHO.  I took the esks and absolutely hate that a good capper like yourself took Tor.  It makes me nervous. 

Good luck this year dimes
