Context

Just like in the NFL, the first week of the CFL season is the perfect time for overreaction. The Argonauts looked unstoppable in there Week 1 win as quarterback Ricky Ray threw for 505 yards, while the BC Lions, a Grey Cup favorite, lost.

Toronto and BC meet Friday, should you get on the Argos bandwagon or bet the Lions to bounce back?

Moneyline underdogs have been historically profitable in the CFL. There is even more value when the team is on the road. The Lions are +143 underdogs at Toronto on Friday. BC lost on a last second field goal in Week 1 but the Lions have value as small road dogs against the Argos.

CFL Moneyline Dogs

This Pro System has gone 115-113 (50.4%) on the moneyline, +68.3 units since 2005.

Our Pick

The Lions third year quarterback Jonathan Jennings didn’t play particularly well in Week 1 (failed to score) but we expect the young gunslinger to look like the player from 2016 (5,227 yards, 31 TDs) against the Argonauts. BC gets its first win of the season and provides a nice cash for underdog bettors on Friday.
