    GAME RECAP
    COLLAROS LEADS BOMBERS TO LATE COMEBACK WIN OVER STAMPS
    CFL.CA STAFF



    WINNIPEG — Zach Collaros threw two touchdown passes and Justin Medlock kicked a game-winning field goal as time expired to give the Winnipeg Blue Bombers a 29-28 comeback win over the Calgary Stampeders on Friday night. Collaros threw for 221 yards while completing 22 of 28 passes in his first start with the Bombers, and Winnipeg is now 11-7 after taking the season series against Calgary.


    Calgary took an early lead on a long opening drive that ended with Bo Levi Mitchell throwing a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie receiver Hergy Mayala. The Bombers cut into the lead early in the second quarter with a field goal from Medlock, and they pulled ahead with under two minutes to go in the opening half on a short touchdown run from Nic Demski.


    But the Stamps offence came storming back to retake the lead before half-time, as Mitchell completed six straight passes before putting Calgary on top with a touchdown pass to Eric Rogers. Winnipeg regained the lead early in the third quarter when Collaros threw his first touchdown pass as a Bomber, connecting with Kenny Lawler for a 25-yard score.


    Calgary regained the lead once again later in the third quarter on Mitchell’s second touchdown connection to Rogers. But the ensuing extra point attempt went wide and was returned 122 yards by Janarion Grant for two points, leaving the Stamps with a narrow 20-19 lead. Calgary extended the lead to nine points with Mayala’s second touchdown and a two-point conversion catch from Richie Sindani.


    Collaros connected with Darvin Adams on a highlight-reel touchdown in the fourth quarter to make it a two-point game with under eight minutes remaining, and he led the Bombers to a 34-yard field goal on the final drive to claim the victory.


    Andrew Harris gained 64 rushing yards on 15 carries, surpassing Canadian Football Hall of Famer Norman Kwong to claim the CFL record for most rushing yards by a Canadian.


    Mitchell went over 300 passing yards for the 34th time in his career.


    The Stamps asserted their will on the opening drive of the game with a 12-play, 81-yard scoring march that saw Mitchell complete six of seven passes for 60 yards and a touchdown. Mitchell converted three second downs with accurate completions to extend the drive, and he capped it off by scrambling outside the pocket to find Mayala for a 22-yard touchdown. Rene Paredes kicked the extra point to make it a seven-point lead.


    Collaros connected on his first big passing play as a Bomber towards the end of the opening quarter when he threw a 36-yard strike down the field to receiver Rasheed Bailey. But the Stamps quickly tightened things up on defence as the second quarter began, and a big sack from defensive Chris Casher four plays later on second down forced Winnipeg to settle for a 29-yard field goal from Medlock.


    The Stamps added a single point on a 47-yard punt from Rob Maver that went out of bounds in the end zone. Momentum remained on Calgary’s side later in the second quarter when linebacker Nate Holley intercepted Collaros over the middle. Holley read Collaros the entire way before picking off the pass. But the drive stalled after Winnipeg came up with a defensive stop, and the ensuing 46-yard field goal attempt from Paredes went wide to the left.


    Grant returned the missed field goal 61 yards up the right sideline before a touchdown-saving tackle from Mike Rose brought him down. Winnipeg kept the momentum going as the drive continued. A pass from Sean McGuire to Mike Miller moved the chains on second down, and an eight-yard run from Harris set up a three-yard touchdown run from Demski. Medlock kicked the convert to give the Bombers a 10-8 lead with a minute and a half to go in the quarter.


    Winnipeg’s lead was short-lived, as Mitchell marched the Stamps’ offence down the field in a hurry with seven consecutive completions. Mitchell finished the drive off with a two-yard touchdown pass to Rogers, but the Stamps went into half-time with just a four-point lead after the two-point conversion pass fell incomplete.


    Collaros put the Bombers back on top early in the third quarter with a 25-yard touchdown pass to leading receiver Lawler. Lawler exploited a hole in the Calgary secondary before receiving an accurate strike from Collaros for the score, and Medlock added the extra point to give the Bombers a 17-14 lead.


    The Stamps turned the tables once again and retook the lead later in the third when Mitchell found Rogers for their second touchdown connection of the game. The 10-yard score capped off a 72-yard drive, but Paredes’ extra point attempt went wide and ended up in the waiting hands of Grant. The Bombers return specialist turned on the jets and took the ball all the way to the Stamps’ end zone for a 122-yard defensive two-point convert, leaving Calgary with a narrow one-point lead.


    Mitchell threw an 11-yard touchdown strike to Mayala as time expired in the third quarter to extend Calgary’s lead, and he added a two point conversion on a completion to Sindani to put the Stamps up 28-19.


    But Collaros brought the Bombers closer by engineering an 11-play, 73-yard drive that he finished off with an amazing eight-yard touchdown pass to Adams. Collaros extended the play with his legs and scrambled to the right to avoid pressure before throwing a deep ball on the run to Adams just inside the sideline. Medlock kicked the extra point to make it a two-point game with under eight minutes to play.


    Collaros led the Bombers to victory by guiding the offence down the field in the final two minutes to set up a game-winning 34-yard field goal from Medlock as time ran out.


    The final week of the regular season will see the Calgary Stampeders travel on the road to face the BC Lions next Saturday at 10:00 p.m. EDT., while the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are off until their first playoff matchup.

    PREVIEW
    TICATS, ALS MEET IN POSSIBLE PLAYOFF PREVIEW
    CFL.CA STAFF



    MONTREAL — The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Montreal Alouettes meet in a Saturday afternoon matinee and a potential Eastern Final preview at Percival-Molson Stadium.


    Hamilton has already wrapped up first place in the East, clinching themselves the right to host the Eastern Final, while Montreal has settled into second place and will welcome the Edmonton Eskimos on Nov. 10 for the Eastern Semi-Final.


    Although the playoff positioning for both teams has been secured for a few weeks, neither has let their foot off the gas pedal, as evidenced by their victories in Week 19.


    Montreal had to grind out a win against the Toronto Argonauts at home. Three Vernon Adams Jr. touchdown passes did the trick for Montreal. Meanwhile, Hamilton thumped the REDBLACKS at Tim Hortons Field in a strong defensive performance.


    The win was a monumental one for the Ticats, as they earned 13 wins in a single regular season for the first time in franchise history.


    Saturday’s running back matchup is an intriguing one. Tyrell Sutton is returning to his old stomping grounds after spending parts of six seasons with the Als. The veteran was signed by the Tiger-Cats to be the next in a long line of players at the running back position.


    Sutton seems to be fitting in well, as his 149 all-purpose yards last week earned him consideration for Shaw Top Performer.


    “It’s just a testament to the way we play out here in Hamilton,” Sutton told Ticats.ca. “I’m just being a team-first guy and trying to get those wins. The IQ around here is second to none. I’ve been around some teams where guys just don’t get it. A lot of the guys in this room are IQ-savvy and know the game of football.”


    Opposite Sutton is Jeremiah Johnson, who gets the start as the Als rest William Stanback. Johnson has enjoyed a strong 2019 despite seeing limited reps behind Stanback. His 5.8 yards per carry are more than serviceable, and Johnson had a receiving touchdown last week against the Argos.


    Montreal had a big game on the ground the last time the Als and Ticats met. In Week 4, Stanback put the team on his back, rushing for 203 yards on 22 touches while scoring three touchdowns. His hurdle and dive for the pylon in the fourth quarter made the highlight reels, and the 36-29 victory was Montreal’s first of the season.


    Other Alouettes getting the game off are DeVier Posey, Tommie Campbell, Henoc Muamba and Mario Alford.


    D.J. Lalama is getting the start at middle linebacker in Muamba’s absence. Lalama started the year on Winnipeg’s practice roster before making his way to the Alouettes. The University of Manitoba alum also spent time in Montreal in 2017.


    “I think we’ve got a good team to do what we do,” defensive back Greg Reid told MontrealAlouettes.com. “Once we’re playing good football and hustling to the ball, I don’t think anyone can really put points on the board, as long as we’re locked in. We’re just continuing to do what we do and what the coaches want us to do – that’s effort and enjoying ourselves.”

We’re just continuing to do what we do and what the coaches want us to do – that’s effort and enjoying ourselves.”


    John Bowman rejoins the Alouettes ranks after getting rested last week. Despite being 37 years old and in his 14th CFL season, Bowman’s 45 tackles are the most he’s had in any single year.


    While Montreal rests key players, all the big names are in the lineup for the Tiger-Cats. In fact, their lineup might be even stronger than the one they fielded against Ottawa last week. Luke Tasker re-enters the fold and starts at slotback opposite Bralon Addison.


    “Every time we take the field, we’re going to expect to win,” Orlondo Steinauer told Ticats.ca. “It doesn’t matter who we roll out there at quarterback, running back or receiver. We’re not in a position to rest everyone, nor is that really our plan.”


    Montreal is one of only two teams in the CFL without a 1,000-yard receiver in 2019, but Geno Lewis is close. Adams Jr.’s go-to target is sitting on 983 receiving yards. Lewis started his career on the Alouettes practice roster in 2017 and the Oklahoma alum has seen his workload grow each season.


    “It would be my first 1,000-yard season ever,” Lewis told said. “I never had one in high school and I never had one in college. I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to be in this situation. It just shows that if you work hard, put your head down and grind it out, you never know what will happen.”


    BY THE NUMBERS


    2015 – The last time the Alouettes won a season series with the Tiger-Cats.


    371 – Average passing yards-per-game for Dane Evans over his last six starts.


    4 – Straight games in which Hamilton has led by 20 or more points at some time during the game.


    5 – Fourth quarter comebacks for Vernon Adams Jr. this season. He is one short of tying the CFL record held by Mike Reilly (six in 2017).



    Kickoff is at 1 p.m. ET and can be seen on TSN, RDS and ESPN+, and followed live via CFL.ca Game Tracker.

    — M&M’s: 11%


    — Hershey bars: 6%


    — Candy corn: 6%


    — Skittles: 5%


    Quote of the Day
    “You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.”
    Eleanor Roosevelt


    Friday’s quiz
    Who coached the Arizona Cardinals in their one Super Bowl?


    Thursday’s quiz
    Karl Malone has made the most free throws in NBA history (9,787)


    Wednesday’s quiz
    Dave Wannstedt was the Miami Dolphins’ coach last time they won a playoff game, in 2000.


    **********************


    Friday’s List of 13: Random stuff with weekend here…..


    13) Phillies signed Bryce Harper, Padres signed Manny Machado, but Washington won the World Series. Here is the money Washington spent on pitching:


    — Strasburg: seven years, $175M
    — Scherzer: seven years, $210M
    — Corbin: six years, $140M
    — Sanchez: two years, $19M


    Starting pitching still matters.


    12) Gerrit Cole is about to break the bank in free agency; wonder what his agent’s blood pressure was Wednesday night when Cole started throwing in the bullpen, three nights after he threw 110 pitches Sunday. Don’t want the star client getting hurt.


    Lets say Cole banks $35M a year for four years in his next contract (Zack Greinke makes that now); the agent’s take (3%) of all that would be $4,200,000.


    11) 49ers 28, Cardinals 25— 49ers led 28-14 but Arizona kept America entertained until the end; Garoppolo was 27-36/306 and four TD’s passng, as the 49ers improved to 8-0.


    10) When the Rams traded injured CB Aqib Talib to Miami this week, you figure Talib would be insulted or ticked off, but because of state income tax laws, Talib actually saves $560,000- he moved from California to Florida, where taxes are lower. Good week for him.


    9) Two of my favorite NBA players to watch are both on the Clippers; Patrick Beverley and Montrezl Harrell; they aren’t stat guys, they just work their butts off and make life uncomfortable for their opponents. Guys like that make life easier for the stat guys.


    8) Baylor 17, West Virginia 14— Bears improve to 8-0, even though they’ve been favored only twice in their last five games. Baylor has three wins by 3 or fewer points.


    7) NFL road teams are 71-45-2 ATS so far this season.


    6) Jimmy Butler’s stats in Miami’s 106-97 win over Atlanta Thursday: 5 points, 9 rebounds, 11 assists, 6 steals and 3 blocks. Heat was +21 with Butler on the floor, -12 with hm off the floor. You don’t have to score all the time to be a difference maker.


    5) Wayne Ellington has scored 5,298 points in his 11-year NBA career; Knicks are the ninth NBA team he’s played for. His best scoring year was two years ago, when he scored 11.8 ppg for Miami.


    Ellington played three years at North Carolina, scoring 14.7 ppg, was 28th player taken in the 2009 Draft. Betcha he could write a helluva book, playing on nine teams in 11 years.


    4) Georgia Southern 24, Appalachian State 21— Mountaineers had gotten up to #20 in country, but then lost at home on national TV to their longtime rivals from back in their I-AA days.


    3) Joel Embiid and Karl Anthony Towns both got suspended two games for their part in a small scuffle during Wednesday’s game. On NBA TV, couple of retired players were laughing, saying that back in the 90’s, when the NBA game was much more physical than it is now, the players wouldn’t even have gotten tossed out of the game.


    2) Kansas City Royals named former Cardinal skipper Mike Matheny their new manager; he was 591-474 in seven years in St Louis, 21-22 in playoff games, but he missed the playoffs this last three years, which is why the Cardinals told him to take a hike.


    1) Only 105 days until pitchers/catchers report for the 2020 baseball season.

    CFL Betting Notes - Week 21
    David Schwab


    Heading into the final round of games in the CFL regular season, Winnipeg was able to close out its 18-game schedule with an impressive 29-28 upset over Calgary last Friday night as a three-point home underdog. The Blue Bombers have a Week 21 bye.


    In the first of three Saturday games in Week 20, Hamilton kept rolling along with a 38-26 road victory against Montreal as a 2 ½-point favorite. Toronto hammered Ottawa 39-9 as a six-point favorite at home and Saskatchewan is one step closer to the West Division title with a 27-24 road win against Edmonton to cover as a 2 ½-point favorite.


    Friday, Nov. 1


    Montreal Alouettes (9-8 SU, 9-8 ATS) at Ottawa RedBlacks (3-14 SU, 5-13 ATS)
    Point-spread: Montreal -9 ½
    Total: 51



    Game Overview


    Montreal is locked into a first-round playoff matchup against Edmonton as a crossover team from the West regardless of this week’s results. The Alouettes split the first two games against Ottawa both straight-up and against the spread with the road team getting the win. The total went OVER in each contest. With Saturday’s loss, they are 2-3 (SU and ATS) over their last five games with the total staying UNDER in three of the five outings. Montreal gave up close to 400 yards passing and four touchdown throws in the loss to Hamilton.


    The RedBlacks have been riding out the string for quite some time in the midst of a SU 10-game losing streak. They have also failed to remain competitive in most of those losses with a 2-8 record ATS. Ottawa is 2-6 ATS at home and 5-8 ATS when closing as an underdog. The RedBlacks were held to 261 yards of total offense in Saturday’s loss. Will Arndt got the start at quarterback and he completed 21-of-32 passing attempts for 194 yards and a score.


    Betting Trends


    -- With the 1-1 split against Montreal in the season series, Ottawa has gone 11-3 SU in the last 14 meetings with a 10-4 record ATS. The total has stayed UNDER in seven of the last nine games between the two East Division rivals.




    Saturday, Nov. 2


    Edmonton Eskimos (8-9 SU, 5-12 ATS) at Saskatchewan Roughriders (12-5 SU, 12-5 ATS)
    Point-spread: Saskatchewan -7 ½
    Total: 47 ½



    Game Overview


    With the loss (SU and ATS) in the frontend of this home-and-home series, Edmonton is 2-6 SU over its last eight outings with a costly 1-7 record ATS. The total went OVER 47 points in Saturday’s loss and it has gone OVER in six of the Eskimos’ last nine games. They are 2-6 ATS in eight previous road games this season. Edmonton lost the first game against Saskatchewan on a 43-yard field goal in the closing seconds. Trevor Harris returned to action at quarterback and threw for 321 yards on 27 completions. He tossed one touchdown and two interceptions.


    The Roughriders are one win away from clinching the West Division and a first round bye in the playoffs. This was their fifth SU win in their last six games while covering the closing spread in their last five outings. The total has gone OVER in four of their last six games. Edmonton had no answer for stopping Cody Fajardo in Saturday’s loss. He completed 25 of his 35 passing attempts for 429 yards and two scores. Saskatchewan added 100 more yards on the ground on 14 rushing attempts.


    Betting Trends


    -- The Roughriders have won four of their last six games against the Eskimos SU and they have a 6-2 edge ATS in the last eight matchups in this West Division clash. The total has stayed UNDER in four of the last six meetings.


    Toronto Argonauts (4-13 SU, 8-7-2 ATS) at Hamilton Tiger-Cats (14-3 SU, 12-4-1 ATS)
    Point-spread: Hamilton -13 ½
    Total: 53 ½



    Game Overview


    Toronto started this season with a 64-14 loss to the Tiger-Cats as a four-point home underdog. It also lost an early September road game against its East Division rivals as an 11-point underdog in a game that ended as a PUSH. The total went OVER in each meeting. The Argonauts have a 3-4-1 record ATS on the road this year. Three different quarterbacks saw action in Saturday’s win. Dakota Prukop got a chance to start the third quarter and he threw a pair of touchdowns to blow the game wide open.


    The Tiger-Cats are set as the top seed in the East, so it is hard to say how they will approach this game. They have won nine of their last 10 games SU with a 6-0-1 record ATS over their last seven outings. The total went OVER 52 ½ points in the win against Montreal and it has gone OVER in three of their last five games. Hamilton is 6-1-1 ATS at home and it has a 9-3-1 record ATS when closing as favorites. Dane Evans completed 80.6% of his 36 passing attempts in Saturday’s win for 379 yards and four scores.


    Betting Trends


    -- Hamilton has won nine of its last 10 home games against Toronto SU with a 6-1-1 record ATS in the last eight meetings at Tim Hortons Field. The total has gone OVER in the last five games between these two East Division rivals.


    Calgary Stampeders (11-6 SU, 5-11-1 ATS) at British Columbia Lions (5-12 SU, 7-10 ATS)
    Point-spread: Calgary -6 ½
    Total: 46



    Game Overview


    Calgary did not do itself any favors with Friday’s loss in its quest to repeat as West Division champs. Now, it needs a win this game and get some help to secure the title. The Stampeders have really been tough to bet on lately with a 0-5-1 record ATS over their past six games. The total has gone OVER in their last three outings. They blew a 10-point lead heading into the fourth quarter of last Friday’s game. You cannot blame Bo Levi Mitchell for that setback. He finished the game with 350 passing yards and four touchdown throws.


    The Lions come off last week’s bye with a 1-3 record ATS in their last four games while going 2-2 SU. Going back to a loss to Winnipeg on the road in mid-August, the total has stayed UNDER in eight of their last nine games. BC is 3-5 ATS at home this season and the total has stayed UNDER in four of its last five home games. Quarterback Mike Reilly is done for the season due to injury. In his place, Danny O’Brien was under center in the Lions’ 27-19 loss to Saskatchewan on Oct. 18. He threw for 171 yards with one touchdown throw and one interception.


    Betting Trends


    -- With a win at home earlier in the season, Calgary is 8-1 SU in its last nine games against BC. The Stampeders are 4-1-1 ATS in their last six road games against the Lions and the total has stayed UNDER in four of the last five meetings overall.

    CFL Week 21 preview, odds, picks & predictions: Stampeders' motivation drives this bet
    Rohit Ponnaiya


    Bo Levi Mitchell and the Calgary Stampeders are 7-point favorites on the road against the B.C. Lions in Week 21 of the CFL season.


    It's the final week of the CFL regular season and with the playoff picture almost completely set, most teams have little to play for. But we're digging deep to break down the odds (provided by 10bet.com) and find betting value for every game on the Week 21 schedule.


    Season Betting Trends


    Favorites: 58-19 SU, 36-39-2 ATS
    Home teams: 48-29 SU, 38-37-2 ATS
    Over/Under: 36-40-1


    Week 20 Picks: 2-2
    Season to date: 36-35-2



    MONTREAL ALOUETTES AT OTTAWA REDBLACKS (+9.5, 51)


    Montreal wasn't supposed to do much this season but will host a playoff game thanks to quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. who might win the Most Outstanding Player Award.


    Montreal was winning against first-place Hamilton last week before coach Khari Jones pulled Adams in the second quarter. After that they collapsed. Adams is the focal point of the Als offense and without him they struggle. If last week is any indication don't expect to see much of Adams on Friday as they continue to rest him for the playoffs.


    The Redblacks have the worse offense in the league, producing just 16.5 points per game. That number has dropped to just 11.7 ppg in their last six contests. Expect both teams to have a hard time moving the ball and bet the Under.


    PICK: Under 51


    EDMONTON ESKIMOS AT SASKATCHEWAN ROUGHRIDERS (-7.5, 47.5)


    Edmonton squandered a first-half lead against the Riders last week and lost 27-24. On the flip side they played much better with Trevor Harris back under center. Harris was the league's leading passer before an injury to his throwing arm made him miss Edmonton's last four games.


    In terms of yards, the Esks had one of the highest-rated offenses and defenses in the league before the Harris injury. While on the surface this game might not mean much, you can be sure that Edmonton will want to enter the postseason with some momentum after losing six of their last eight games. Back the Eskimos to keep things close and take them and the points.


    PICK: Edmonton +7.5


    TORONTO ARGONAUTS AT HAMILTON TIGER-CATS (-13, 53.5)


    Hamilton is 14-3 and this game means little to them. But frankly, they wrapped up first place in the Eastern Conference, a bye and home-field advantage in the playoffs, weeks ago and have still played hard. Not only do they have the best straight up record in the league, they also have the best record ATS going 12-3-2.


    At home the Ti-Cats are 8-0 with an average scoring margin of plus-14.4 ppg. While the Argos are 1-7 on the road with an average scoring margin of minus-15 ppg.


    Argos coach Corey Chamblin has said that backup QBs Dakota Prukop and Michael O'Connor will get plenty of snaps in this game. Going up against Hamilton's elite defense which has produced 52 sacks and 22 sacks could spell trouble for the young signal-callers. Take the Ti-Cats to cover.

    PICK:
    Hamilton -13


    CALGARY STAMPEDERS AT B.C. LIONS (+7, 46)


    The Stamps actually have something to play for in this contest. If they lose they would have to travel to Winnipeg for the West Divison Semifinal but a victory would give them home-field advantage in that matchup with the Blue Bombers. While the Stamps will be motivated to win, they might not necessarily be motivated enough to run up the score against a toothless Lions side that sits at 5-12 and doesn't have star QB Mike Reilly.


    Expect Calgary to come out fired up and take an early lead, although they might take the foot off the pedal in the second half and rest some of their starters. Back them on the 1H spread.

    PICK:
    First Half Calgary -4

    GAME RECAP
    PLAYOFF-BOUND ALS END REGULAR SEASON WITH ROAD WIN OVER REDBLACKS
    CFL.CA STAFF



    OTTAWA — Vernon Adams Jr. tossed a pair of touchdown passes and Matthew Shiltz added another to lead the Montreal Alouettes past the Ottawa REDBLACKS with a 42-32 road win on Friday night. The playoff-bound Als move to 10-8 and will now prepare to host the Eastern Semi-Final against the Edmonton Eskimos.


    Montreal took an early lead after Adams engineered a scoring drive that saw him throw a touchdown pass to Eugene Lewis. Ottawa responded with a field goal, but Adams answered back with another touchdown strike to Lewis. Adams was pulled from the game near the end of the opening half, with Shiltz replacing him under centre.


    Shiltz threw a touchdown pass to rookie receiver Dante Absher to start the third quarter. A pair of one-yard rushing touchdowns from Jonathon Jennings brought the REDBLACKS closer in the second half, but a touchdown run from rookie running back Jarveon Williams gave Montreal a two-possession lead with under seven minutes remaining.


    The REDBLACKS made it a three-point game with under two minutes to play when Jennings’ third touchdown run of the half was followed up by a successful two-point conversion from John Crockett. But a 15-yard pick-six from defensive back Najee Murray sealed the victory for Montreal.


    Adams completed 13 of 16 passes for 126 yards, and he now has 24 touchdown passes on the season. Lewis went over 1,000 receiving yards in a single season for the first time in his career.


    Brad Sinopoli had a game-high 100 receiving yards while catching eight of 10 targets. Dominique Davis and Will Arndt both saw action under centre for Ottawa.


    Montreal took the lead right away when Bede’s opening kickoff traveled 94 yards before being downed in the end zone for a single point. The defence followed it up with a quick two-and-out as a result of a big sack from Patrick Levels, and the offence proceeded to put together a solid drive. Adams led the charge, completing four of five passes for 53 yards and a touchdown to extend Montreal’s lead.


    The biggest play of the opening drive was a 27-yard strike to Absher, and Adams capped the drive off with a five-yard touchdown pass to Lewis in the back of the end zone. Bede kicked the extra point to extend Montreal’s lead to eight points. Bede also extended the lead on the following kickoff by booting the ball 82 yards into Ottawa’s end zone for another single point.


    The REDBLACKS responded with a 27-yard field goal from Lewis Ward after Davis and Crockett led the offence down the field. The drive stalled when defensive end Ja’Von Rolland-Jones brought Crockett down for a loss of yards on second down.


    Montreal’s offence restored momentum by responding with a long scoring drive. Lewis got things started by breaking off a 23-yard catch-and-run, and William Stanback chipped in 29 rushing yards on four carries to put the team in position to score. Adams finished the drive with an accurate nine-yard touchdown strike to rookie receiver Jake Wieneke, and Bede added the extra point to give Montreal a 16-3 lead with just under twelve minutes to go in the opening half.


    Ottawa appeared poised to score a touchdown on the next drive when Davis led the offence into Montreal territory with six straight completions. But the Als’ defence stepped up near their own ten-yard line and prevented Ottawa from securing a fresh set of downs. The REDBLACKS settled for an 18-yard field goal from Ward, cutting Montreal’s lead down to ten points.


    Bede notched his third single near the end of the half when his 47-yard punt traveled through the back of Ottawa’s end zone, giving the Als a 17-6 lead. Shiltz replaced Adams at quarterback in the final minutes before half-time, and the Als surrendered two points when they opted to give up a safety on third down. Ward kicked a 47-yard field goal with a minute remaining to make it a 17-11 game entering the third quarter.


    Shiltz completed four consecutive passes to start the third quarter before capping the drive off with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Absher. Bede kicked the convert and added yet another single point on the ensuing kickoff to put Montreal up 25-11.


    Arndt replaced Davis under centre for Ottawa, and the REDBLACKS cut into Montreal’s lead once again on a 10-play, 70-yard drive. R.J. Harris appeared to score on a 20-yard grab, but a review ruled him down at the one-yard line. Jonathan Jennings came in to finish the drive with a rushing touchdown on a quarterback sneak, and Ward kicked the convert to make the score 25-18. Bede kicked a 37-yard field goal near the end of the third quarter to extend Montreal’s lead.


    The REDBLACKS gained ground again early in the fourth quarter when Jennings capped off a 12-play, 62-yard drive with his second one-yard rushing score of the game. But Ward’s extra point went wide to the right, leaving Ottawa four points behind. Greg Reid returned the missed convert 81 yards up the right sideline to give Montreal momentum before an illegal forward pass halted the return. The Als then added more points on a 35-yard run from Williams, giving them a 35-24 lead with just over seven minutes to play.


    A 41-yard punt return from Stefan Logan helped set up Jennings’ third one-yard rushing score of the half, and Crockett followed it up with a three-yard run for the two-point conversion to make it a three-point game with under two minutes remaining. But Montreal’s defence sealed the win with a touchdown, as Murray intercepted a pass that went through the hands of Jerminic Smith and returned it 15 yards for the touchdown.


    While the season is now over for the Ottawa REDBLACKS, the Montreal Alouettes will next face the Edmonton Eskimos at home in the Eastern Semi-Final on Sunday, November 10th at 1:00 p.m. (EDT).

    Quote of the Day
    “Let’s just say that I thought we’d be better than this.”
    Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones


    Saturday’s quiz
    Who is the oldest head coach in the NFL this year?


    Friday’s quiz
    Ken Whisenhunt coached the Arizona Cardinals in their one Super Bowl.


    Thursday’s quiz
    Karl Malone has made the most free throws in NBA history (9,787)


    *************************


    Saturday’s List of 13: Clearing out a cluttered mind……


    13) Genuinely weird stat: NFL quarterbacks making their first career start this year are 8-0 ATS, 4-3-1 SU. Sunday, Denver’s Brandon Allen, Washington’s Dwayne Haskins become QB’s #9-10 to make his first career start.


    12) If you’re into betting NBA games, make damn sure you know Kawhi Leonard’s status before wagering on a Clippers’ game; that may sound obvious, but sometimes life is simple.


    So far this season, the Clippers are +54 with Leonard on the floor, -26 with him off the floor.


    11) There are 45 NBA players this season who are making $25M+.


    10) In the Super Bowl era before this year, 25 teams started a season 8-0; of those 25 teams, 14 made it to the Super Bowl, going 8-6, with ’09 Saints the last 8-0 team to win a title. The seventeen 8-0 teams that made it to a conference title game went 14-3.


    49ers and Patriots are 8-0 right now. 49ers and the 2013 Chiefs are the only teams in NFL history to start 8-0 after winning four or fewer games the previous season.


    9) NFL teams with most snaps played by rookies this season:
    — Giants 2,907
    — Jaguars 2,417
    — Raiders 2,352


    8) NFL teams with most salary cap dollar on IR:
    — Steelers $37.6M
    — Jaguars $33.3M
    — Texans $31.6M


    7) Last six teams to play Game 7 of a finals series at home:
    2019 Astros- lost to Washington
    2019 Bruins- lost to St Louis
    2017 Dodgers- lost to Houston
    2016 Warriors- lost Cleveland
    2016 Indians- lost to Chicago Cubs
    2014 Royals- Lost to San Francisco


    6) Wednesday night, Golden State was down 43-14 at home to the Phoenix Suns; they were down 37 at the half in Oklahoma Sunday. Going to be a long winter for the Warriors, who did win one of their first four games, but two really ugly losses in the first ten days of the season isn’t good.


    Golden State could have a dismal year, get a lottery pick, then have Klay Thompson back next season and have themselves a contending team again in 2020-21. There is precedent for this……


    From 1993-96, San Antonio won 55-62-59 games, then in ’96-’97, David Robinson got hurt and the Spurs went 20-62. They drafted a kid named Tim Duncan and haven’t missed the playoffs since then, winning five NBA titles.


    5) Seattle Seahawks claimed WR Josh Gordon off waivers from New England. Talented yet troubled, the talented guys always get multiple chances.


    4) CBS told golf analysts Gary McCord, Peter Kostis to take a hike; the two analysts have a combined 59 years of experience at CBS. CBS signed Davis Love III to replace McCord.


    3) Last time 15th-ranked SMU was ranked this high in football? 1985.


    2) From Mike Clay: New Orleans Saints’ WR Michael Thomas has 73 receptions in 8 games, which puts him on pace for 146 catches, which would break Marvin Harrison’s single-season record of 143 set in 2002.


    Despite all that, Thomas doesn’t have a single end zone target this season; he’s scored four TD’s anyway. .


    1) If I never hear the phrase “Quid Pro Quo” again, it’ll be too damn soon, except when Mr Chow says it in The Hangover, a very funny movie. Then its OK.

    CFL Betting Notes - Div Finals
    David Schwab

    The final weekend of CFL regular season games kicked things off with Montreal posting its 10th straight-up victory of the year by beating Ottawa 42-32 as a seven-point road favorite on Friday night.

    In the first of three Saturday games, Saskatchewan clinched the West Division title with a 23-13 victory against Edmonton in a PUSH as a 10-point home favorite. Hamilton closed out its season with a tight 21-18 win at home against Toronto, but the Tiger-Cats came nowhere close to covering the 13 ½-point spread. Calgary closed as a 6 ½-point road favorite against British Columbia and the Stampeders failed to cover in a 21-16 decision.

    Sunday, Nov. 10

    Edmonton Eskimos (8-10 SU, 5-12-1 ATS) at Montreal Alouettes (10-8 SU, 10-8 ATS)
    Point-spread: Montreal -1 ½
    Total: 50


    Game Overview

    Edmonton enters the playoffs as a crossover team from the West Division. The Eskimos split the season series against Montreal SU with the home team winning each meeting. They were 0-2 ATS with the total staying UNDER 54 points in a 20-10 loss to the Alouettes as 5 ½-point road favorites. Edmonton has just two straight-up wins over its last nine games with a 1-7-1 record against the spread. The total has stayed UNDER in three of its last five contests. It has gone 2-6-1 ATS on the road this season.

    Logan Kilgore took the majority of the snaps at quarterback in the season finale. He completed 12-of-22 passes for 88 yards with two touchdown throws against one interception. Taking over for the injured Trevor Harris over final six games of the season, he has thrown for 1,199 yards while completing 65.5 percent of his 174 attempts. Kilgore has six touchdown passes against nine interceptions.

    This will be Montreal’s first postseason appearance since the 2014 CFL season. The Alouettes followed a SU win with a SU loss in each of their past nine outings. They went 5-4 ATS during this same span with the total going OVER in three of their final four games. Montreal failed to cover the closing spread in five of its final seven home games.

    Vernon Adams Jr. completed 13-of-16 passing attempts in limited action Friday night for 126 yards and two touchdowns before giving way to Matt Shiltz. Adams finished the regular season with 3,942 total passing yards while completing 65.7 percent of his 431 passing attempts. He tossed 24 touchdowns against 13 interceptions. William Stanback was the Alouettes’ leading rusher with 1,048 yards and five scores on 170 carries. He gained 45 yards on seven rushing attempts against Ottawa.

    Betting Trends

    -- With the SU season split, Edmonton has won 11 of its last 12 games against Montreal. It also has an 8-4 edge in these meetings ATS. The total has gone OVER in four of the last five games in this inter-division clash.

    Winnipeg Blue Bombers (11-7 SU, 12-6 ATS) at Calgary Stampeders (12-6 SU, 5-12-1 ATS)
    Point-spread: Calgary -6
    Total: 49 ½


    Game Overview

    The Blue Bombers have the benefit of a Week 21 bye heading into their third game against Calgary over the past four weeks. This will be the fourth meeting between these West Division rivals this season with the home team winning each game SU. Winnipeg has the 2-1 edge ATS with the total going OVER in all three games. The Blue Bombers are 5-1 ATS this season when closing as underdogs and they have covered in three of their last five road games.

    In the season-ending 29-28 home win against Calgary, Zach Collaros was under center at quarterback in his only start this season due to injury. He completed 22-of-28 passes for 221 yards and two scores. He was also picked off once. Andrew Harris gained another 64 yards running the ball on 15 carries. He ended the regular season as the CFL’s leading rusher with 1,380 yards and four scores on 225 carries.

    The Week 20 loss to Winnipeg cost Calgary the West Division title after opening that home-and-home series with a 37-33 victory as a 6 ½-point favorite at home. The Stampeders were 7-2 SU in their last nine games with a costly 2-6-1 record ATS after failing to cover in their last five games. The total stayed UNDER 47 points in Saturday’s win against BC after going OVER in six of their previous 10 outings. Calgary is 2-7 ATS at home this season and a dismal 1-11-1 ATS closing as a favorite.

    Bo Levi Mitchell ended the season with 3,464 passing yards and 19 touchdown throws in 11 starts. He completed 66 percent of his 415 passing attempts. He threw for a combined 687 yards and seven touchdowns in those final two games against Winnipeg. Reginald Begelton has been his top target with 102 receptions in 17 games. His 1,444 receiving yards is ranked third in the CFL and his 10 touchdown catches are also tied for the third most in the CFL.

    Betting Trends

    -- Calgary has the slight 6-4 SU edge in the last 10 meetings between these two division foes. This includes a 22-14 SU win in last year’s playoffs as a 7 ½-point home favorite. The series is tied 5-5 ATS with the total going OVER in six of the 10 games.

    CFL Division Semifinals preview, odds, picks & predictions: Why Winnipeg is worth a wager
    Rohit Ponnaiya

    The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are 6-point underdogs on the road against the Calgary Stampeders in the CFL Western Division semifinals on Sunday.

    The CFL division semifinals take place on Sunday with the Edmonton Eskimos crossing over to play the Montreal Alouettes, while the Calgary Stampeders host the Winnipeg Blue Bombers as 6-point chalk.

    We break down the odds (provided by 10bet.com) with analysis and predictions for both CFL playoff games this weekend.

    Season Betting Trends

    Favorites: 62-19 SU, 38-41-2 ATS
    Home teams: 50-31 SU, 40-39-2 ATS
    Over/Under: 37-43-1

    Week 21 Picks: 3-1
    Season to date: 39-36-2


    EDMONTON ESKIMOS AT MONTREAL ALOUETTES (-1.5, 50)

    This line is a testament to how much the Alouettes have flown under the radar all season. While the Eskimos will have star quarterback Trevor Harris, he's played just one game since September 8 and they had red-zone problems on offense even with Harris under center.

    Alouettes QB Vernon Adams Jr might be the front-runner for Most Outstanding Player after accounting for 36 total touchdowns (24 passing and 12 running) in 16 games this season. While the Eskimos defense has been excellent against the pass they've been vulnerable to the run giving up 5.4 yards per carry. That's bad news against the mobile Adams and Montreal running back William Stanback who rushed for 1048 yards in 14 games with 6.2 YPA.

    Edmonton has struggled on the road going 3-6 SU and 2-7 ATS. Their three victories away from home came against the three-worst teams in the league in Ottawa, Toronto and B.C. The Als went 6-3 at home, including a 20-10 victory over the Esks in Week 6 - a game which Harris was healthy for. Take the home side to win and cover.

    PICK:
    Montreal -1.5


    WINNIPEG BLUE BOMBERS AT CALGARY STAMPEDERS (-6, 49.5)

    If the regular-season matchups between these teams are any indication, this should be a close game. The Bombers went 2-1 in the series with a total score of 89-88 for Calgary. The biggest margin of victory was a 37-33 Calgary victory in Week 19 where Winnipeg had a fourth-quarter lead.

    While Calgary could certainly repeat as Grey Cup champions this isn't the same juggernaut they've had in years past. The Stamps rank fourth in the league in offense and in defense (both in terms of yardage and scoring), which in a league of nine teams isn't exactly impressive.

    The Bombers struggled towards the end of the season but with the recently acquired (and recently healthy) Zach Collaros looking sharp against the Stamps in their season finale, their passing struggles might be over. Winnipeg has the top running attack and the best run defense in the league and, at least on paper, a formidable pass defense that has piled up 48 sacks and 24 interceptions.

    When it comes to special teams, Winnipeg has a clear edge. Returner Janarion Grant has two punt return TDs against Calgary this season and Winnipeg is plus-7 in big plays on special teams while Calgary is minus-6.

    The Bombers are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games against Western Conference opponents while the Stamps are 0-6-1 ATS in their previous seven games overall. Take Winnipeg and the points.

    PICK:
    Winnipeg +6
