CFL Picks: July 04

By Mitchell Blair

It’s Monday Night Football CFL style. You are the Toronto Argonauts and you are coming off a game where you were beaten 44-3 by BC. You want to make amends for that performance and you will try to do so against the two-time defending Grey Cup champion Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Good luck!  

The Argos are 8-0 in their last 8 games following a loss. I don’t see that happening today; this is a Winnipeg team that is once again built on defense. The Blue Bombers have allowed just one TD this season and are riding a current run of 39 consecutive opponent possessions without one. The only team to score a TD against the Bombers was Ottawa and that was early in Week 1.

Winnipeg opened as a 3.5 favourite, but the spread has since moved to 4.5. I think the line could move to 6.5 and I would still put my money on them. While the Bombers are not the force they have been the last two years, Toronto certainly does not look like a team that is on their level right now and I don’t expect that ferocious Winnipeg  D to take an evening off.  

Andrew Harris will be fired up to play the team that he helped win those two Grey Cups, but his play won’t be enough to derail the Winnipeg express. 

Take Winnipeg all day and take them to cover the 4.5 point spread.
