The Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Hamilton Tiger-Cats meet for the third time this season having split the first two games. The CFL Betting world has a big decision to make about where to lay their dough with each team blowing out the other on their home field. With the Toronto Argonauts seemingly falling back to earth in the standings, both teams have a chance to climb back in the race for second place.

WINNIPEG BLUE BOMBERS (2-3) vs. HAMILTON TIGER-CATS (1-4)
Saturday, August 7, 7:00 PM
Ivor Wynne Stadium
Hamilton, Ontario
Broadcast: TSN
CFL Betting Lines
Winnipeg: 3 (-110)
Hamilton: -3 (-110)
Moneyline: Winnipeg 125: Hamilton -145
Total: 53½ points: Over (110), Under (110)

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are a dropped touchdown catch away from a winning record and will look to take out their frustrations on the Hamilton Tiger-Cats this Saturday. Winnipeg has played fairly good football so far and probably deserve better than their 2-3 record.

The Winnipeg offense has been fine this season. After losing their starting quarterback, the offense hasn’t missed a beat with Steven Jyles at the helm. The offense has scored 157 points so far this season, good for third place in the CFL. They have 15 offensive touchdowns which is second in the league. Running Back Fred Reid had a slow start to the season but has come to life in the last few weeks.

Wide Receiver Terrance Edwards, fresh off a 6 catch 162 yard, 1 touchdown performance is tops in the CFL with 545 yards receiving and four touchdowns.

Winnipeg’s offense will be fine and will likely have to do without Buck Pierce once again this week. The Winnipeg defense will be the key in this game. They have held their own so far this season and have given them a chance to win every week.

Hamilton has just one win on the season and it came three weeks ago against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. They are winless on the road (0-3) so Ivor Wynn Stadium will be a welcome sight. The Bombers did an OK job of keeping the Calgary
Stampeders out of the end zone last week but still allowed a ton of points, thanks to kicker Luca Congi.

The defense has allowed 153 points already this season and will need to tighten up in order to be successful.

The Tiger-Cats offense has been OK but has not been getting any help from their running game at all. DeAndra Cobb has just 202 yards on the ground so far this season on a team that is dead last in the CFL with 353 combined rushing yards.

Quarterback Kevin Glenn has passed for at least 330 yards in three of his last four games and Wide Receiver Arlan Bruce woke up last week with a mind boggling 16 catches, 272 yards and two touchdowns. He has had trouble with Winnipeg in the past but with a performance like last week, there is reason for optimism in Hamilton.

CFL Betting Outlook:This has all the makings of a close game. Both teams are playing slightly better than their records indicate. Some interesting CFL betting trends are as follows:

  • Blue Bombers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games.
  • Tiger-Cats are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS loss.
  • Over is 7-1 in Blue Bombers last 8 vs. East.
  • Over is 5-1 in Blue Bombers last 6 vs. a team with a losing record.
  • Over is 5-1 in Blue Bombers last 6 Saturday games.
  • Over is 4-1 in Blue Bombers last 5 games following a S.U. loss.
  • Over is 4-1 in Tiger-Cats last 5 games in August.
  • However, Under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Hamilton.

CFL Betting Pick: Hamilton Tiger-Cats -3 to keep the home winning trend going in the series.

Will the Winnipeg Blue Bombers win tonight against the Hamilton Tiger Cats? Yes. I do believe they will. 45-21.

Will anyone show up in Hamilton to witness the slaughter? Laughing

I feel the Bombers are certain to win tonight - for no particular reason - just seems like their night. If they lose - it will be down to the final seconds of a close game.

If Bud Grant is in at coach we'll clean out the Ti cats. I hope Kenny Ploen doesn't injure himself and that we don't have a problem with any fog coming in from the Lake. If Farrel Funsten has a good game punting we'll be OK!

Listening to the game (no TV in Charleswood), was so painful! Dropped pass, missed field goals, who watched this game? Where is the report!

We need an O-line. Jyles did well tonight, but the guys in front of him were leaving gaping holes in coverage. We also need a kicker at some point.

O-line might well be the Bombers most glaring weakness. Jyles was under pressure all night. And Reid only gained ground when running to the outside. There was nothing up the middle.

That is three games the Bombers could have and should have won. Given the injuries they've endured and a break or two here and there... Results could be so different.

Bodes well down the road should the injury situation improve and management finds some help on the offensive line.

I've seen enough that I've still plenty of confidence.

I've quite a bit of confidence compared to the last few years. We've some receivers, two good QB's, and the defense looks pretty good ( when they aren't being left out on the field for most of the game. ) Get some of our wounded back, and tighten up the offensive line, and we're going to make some teams look pretty bad.

Well, I'm becoming confident that the Bombers will beat Hamilton for the third place position.

it was on the radio this morning...

Here's a link...though according to the Blue Bomber forum...it originally said "signed" not "contacted"...so maybe that's where the radio station was getting their information.
