- The Winnipeg Blue Bombers (5-0) are 2-point favorites at the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Friday (7 p.m. ET).
- Using Bet Labs, we analyze how undefeated CFL teams have performed against the spread.
The two best teams in the CFL take the field Friday (7 p.m. ET) in a potential Grey Cup preview. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers (5-0), the top team in the West Division and the league’s last unbeaten squad, will travel to Ontario to face the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (4-1), the leader in the East Division.
Both offenses are explosive as the Ticats lead the CFL in scoring, averaging 37.4 points per game, and the Bombers are second (33.8 ppg). Don’t overlook the defenses, either, as Winnipeg is first in points allowed (16.0 ppg) and Hamilton is second (20.0 ppg).
In the marquee matchup of Week 7, oddsmakers opened the Blue Bombers as 2-point road favorites against the Tiger-Cats. A majority of spread tickets are on Winnipeg as an undefeated favorite, but are the Blue Bombers a smart bet?
