    This line opened at BC -8 1/2 but by the time I made my wager the line had already been bet down to 8. The early support for the Bombers has continued and the number has mostly settled at 7 with a couple of 7 1/2's still available off shore. These two teams are very closely matched, as witnessed by the three games they played against one another last year. Winnipeg won the first battle at home by a score of 37-35 and then won the rematch 35-32 on the road the following week. A few weeks later, they met again in the playoffs where the Bombers blew a huge lead on the road and lost 32-31 in a game they still can't believe they let get away. The Lions are back home after having played (and winning) three straight on the road while the Bombers look to continue their great record away from home(1-0 this year, 7-3 last year). Lions starting qb Jennings was injured on the weekend and will miss this game, but reliable back-up Lulay is coming off a career game vs Hamilton and should give the Lions quality play at the pivot position. Winnipeg should get last year's interception leader Leggett back for this game and combines with this year's interception leader Heath to give the Blue and Gold the deadliest combo in the league. Given the tight nature of the games between these two teams, I'll side with the road warrior Bombers and take the generous amount of points being offered.


    Play: Winnipeg +7


    Season record - 6-0

    Line has continued to drop as it's now down to 4 at most places. Solid middling opportunity for those who got in early........

    At some point this line is too low. Getting Winning at 7 or more was probably solid but I am getting close to pulling the trigger on bc, especially on the ml.

    Last minute fg gives the Lions the win but the Bombers cover the spread in what was a spectacular game!

    Great Job Eye -

    That was a fun game looked the refs were going to ruin it early but once they put the flags away it was fun to watch
