Bo Levi Mitchell won’t play Friday
Hamilton is a 2.5-point favorite in their home opener versus Montreal and the game’s over-under is set at 44 points. The Tiger-Cats will be without starting quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell after he hurt his leg in a 32-14 loss to Toronto on Sunday. Mitchell was intercepted in the end zone twice by the Argos – he has already been picked off four times this season.
Meanwhile, the Alouettes are coming off 13 days rest following a 19-12 home victory over the Ottawa Redblacks.

Hamilton vs Montreal
Cody Fajardo went 5-for-6 for 48 yards and a touchdown in a 25-22 preseason win over Hamilton a few weeks back. The 31-year-old also passed for 261 yards and ran for a score in his regular-season debut versus the Redblacks.
Montreal will face a back-up quarterback for the second-straight game after picking off Ottawa QB Nick Arbuckle three times in Week 1. Hamilton’s Matthew Shiltz went 13-for-14 with a 115 passing yards and a TD in relief against Toronto. Last season, he posted a 2-1 record with 935 passing yards, four TDs, and two interceptions. We’ll take the Alouettes to score the upset on the road.

|Winnipeg Blue Bombers||-6.0 (-115)||-240||Un 49.0 (-105)|

Bombers host Lions
Winnipeg is 6-point home chalk over the Lions on Thursday in a matchup of undefeated 2-0 teams. BC hasn’t won in their last five trips to friendly Manitoba. Zach Collaros’ club has scored 87 points over the first two weeks. They lead the CFL in points, yards, passing yards and rush yards while sitting second in team defense. We’ll take the Blue Bombers to cover.

Stampeders vs Roughriders
Calgary is a 3.5-point home favorite over the Roughriders. Both teams are 1-1 this season. The Stampeders are coming off a 26-15 road win versus the Redblacks while Saskatchewan was blown out by the Bombers 45-27. We think the Stamps will take care of business in their home opener against a beat-up Riders squad.
Argonauts vs Elks
Edmonton is a 6.5-point home underdog versus Toronto in Week 3. After destroying the Tiger-Cats 32-14 on Sunday, the Argonauts should have no trouble with an Elks squad that has managed just 13 points in their first two games.
