CFL Betting Notes - First Round

November 7, 2011

It took all 19 weeks of the regular season to sort out the playoff picture in the CFL, but after last week’s games the two matchups in the semifinal round are set, while East Division winner Winnipeg and West Division winner British Columbia enjoy a week off.
Last Thursday, Toronto closed-out its season on a strong note with a 33-16 victory over Hamilton as one-point home underdog. Edmonton posted a 23-20 win over Saskatchewan in Friday’s only game, but came nowhere close to covering as as a nine-point home favorite. Things really heated up on Saturday with Calgary taking out the Blue Bombers 30-24 in a game that ended as a ‘push.’ Montreal then came up woefully short in a 43-1 loss to the Lions as a three-point road underdog in a game that cost it the East title while securing the West for BC in a three-way tie breaker.

The following is brief preview of this upcoming Sunday’s playoff games along with the opening point spread and ‘over/under’ lines as provided by TheGreek.com.
