Generated from 14 Previous Games
Winnipeg Blue Bombers
30.02 = 52.57
EDMONTON: 3-0 for the season.
WINNIPEG: 3-0 for the season.
So this is a ‘Pick ‘Em’ right off the pop.
EDMONTON with mediocre scoring but awesome defense.
WINNIPEG with awesome scoring but mediocre defense.
Another Pick Em consideration.
Ultimately, all PF/PA aside, these teams have very comparable numbers in terms of passing yards for/against and rushing yards for/against.
There were 2 points that stuck out however:
1. Edmonton has thrown 8 picks which is by far the league high.
2. Winnipeg has performed awesomely offensively, but how will they do vs a team like Edmonton who has the least points scored against them in the league?
When a quarterback like Willy has time to think and move, he can put up the league’s best offensive. That’s undisputed. But today, he’s up against his first real test in the Edmonton defense. He’s a great QB, but how will he perform against the leagues strongest defense?
Will he stand up or crumble under the pressure? That’s the question.
When a team like Edmonton has such a high percentage of interceptions, it speaks of poor communication and/ a bad throwing arm. Whatever the case, with that many interceptions, Edmonton could be up 20 points in the last 10 minutes and still lose this game. Interceptions to that magnitude are a static weakness and they are a wild-card leaving Edmonton vulnerable no matter how hard they play.
ATS FORECAST has Winnipeg ahead by 7.5 points. Considering the books are only asking for 2 points, according to Forecast, we are 5.5 points ahead of the game giving the Bombers some excellent value in this position.
RAYMOND REPORT give Edmonton a slight edge in the percentage to win, but in terms of the Green/Red and the Points Calculator, these teams are both +9 points and effectively perfectly even.

At the end of the day, Winnipeg typically trounces their opponent in this position STRAIGHT UP.
But when talking about AT THE SPREAD, they are just in and around ‘even’ w/l in this position.
Once again, “PICK ‘EM.”
Tonight should be a dinger, and despite the pick’em philosophy which tells us that we should take the points, instead, we’re going to give the 2 points and back the Bombers with our wagers for a half unit.
