Winnipeg at Toronto Game Preview

 

The Blue Bombers have gone 2-3 straight-up in their first five games coming off last Saturday’s 20-17 loss to British Columbia in the back end of that West Division home-and-home series. They failed to cover in that game as 4.5-point road favorites to fall to 3-2 against the spread. The total stayed UNDER 55 points on VietBet’s closing line after going OVER in three of their first four contests.

 

After putting up 56 points in an early road win against Montreal, Winnipeg has scored a combined 34 points in its last two road games. Matt Nichols is back under center and he threw for 214 yards and no touchdowns in last weeks loss. The Blue Bombers did get a big effort from Andrew Harris running the ball  last week with 139 rushing yards and two touchdown runs on just 13 carries.

 

Toronto slipped to 1-3 SU on the year with a 16-15 loss to Edmonton as a heavy 9.5-point road underdog last Friday night in the backend of that home-and-home. With the cover on VietBet’s closing spread, the Argonauts improved to 2-2 ATS. The total in that game stayed well UNDER 54 points and it has stayed UNDER in their first four games this season.

 

One of the main reasons why Toronto has been a solid play on the UNDER is an offense that is averaging just 15.3 points per game. Ricky Ray was lost for the season with a neck injury and in his place, James Franklin has completed 51 of his 74 passing attempts for 580 yards, but he only tossed two touchdowns against two interceptions in three previous starts.

Each of these teams has struggled to put points on the board while also getting some solid play from it defense. This sets the stage for a another low-scoring battle this Saturday that stays UNDER VietBet’s current 50.5-point total line.
