Not really. If EDM wins and SASK loses the ESKS get third place in the west.

The weather here in Edmonton is shitty this week we've gotten a foot of snow and it's -5 or so and will drop by kickoff when the sun goes down.

Also Nichols wills start for EDM and for CAL I'm not sure but I'd bet Glenn and Tate get snaps and both are capable but expect some ground work by both team and I would think this one may be over quickly with nobody wanting to get hurt.


One play I am looking at is CAL ML 1st Q or 1st half. EDM blows early in the game and has been outscored 72-56 in the 1st Q this season and the STAMPS have outscored their opponents 130-55 in the 1st Q this year

Either way I wouldn't go big on anything in this game. It's lining up like a total crap-shoot

1st Q lines at my book is OTB as well as pretty much everything else. Gonna go with CAL FH +0.5 -110 for a unit and that looks like it's about it.

I think it's a good question. If Edmonton losses, they go to Toronto to play the argos. Is it possible that Edmonton would rather face Toronto than Calgary? I think it's very possible. Calgaryy is 7-2 at home while the argos own a 4-5 record. gl

I think you might be right even though a team will never really try to lose a game on purpose but it would be to Edmonton's advantage to lose this game tonight and play in Toronto next Sunday.

I was at the Rogers Centre earlier this year when Edmonton was in town and they smoked the Argos so I'm quite sure that is in their minds as well.

Thats one of those be careful what you wish for scenarios. Also EDM may not like traveling cross country either. Western teams typically don't do great playing out east.

And hoping for a team to just lie down and throw a game to win your bet is tough. Ask any TiCats backers from last night that had T.O backups and 4th stringers beat them.

Again either way this is a game to tread lightly on.

I went with CAL FH +0.5 -110 for a unit.
