CFL Free Pick : Ottawa-Toronto 7/13


CFL speeds into Week Four with Ottawa-Toronto starting off the action on Wednesday, July 12th.  We here at HRWager extend to all our friends and family wishes for a good day.  Ottawa(2-0-1) has shown remarkable progress over the last three years to be now the perceived number one team in Canadian Football.  They get to visit the Argos (2-1) who have bounced back well after the opening day loss to Hamilton.  Market is stating that this game is dead even in the odds.  Which way is HRWager leaning for us to profit in this affair starting at 7:30PM on the 13th?

Ottawa-Toronto : RedBlacks Passing Attack

Did not see this one come?  Quality arms in the CFL but to have Trevor Harris leading the league in touchdowns and yardage is a bonus for Ottawa.  This held true even when Calgary came calling to Ottawa last week.  26 apiece stalemate allowed the Redblacks to remain unbeaten.  He is throwing for 80 percent completions and three touchdowns in each of the games so far in 2016.  The opposition knows that it is coming and he was still able to do this against an above average Stampeders’ defense.  What hope do the Argo’s have in containment for this on Wednesday?

Balanced in All Phases

Toronto is on the uptick because they are performing well on all three fronts.  Ricky Ray is dealing decently with a slightly porous offensive line.  Defensively the Argos are amping up their game.  Special teams are a strength for this squad also as of late.  Ricky has not thrown an interception in the last two weeks.  Nothing really special just solid game management.  Will this be enough in the face of one of the better teams in the league?

Trend so far this year is that the road team is doing above expectation.  8-3-1 by the visitors would soon have to be coming back to the norm but it will not do so in this game.  Note that the home teams should start being embraced soon and given the benefit of the doubt.  Toronto has to play near perfect as in no turnovers and win the field position war.  Too much to ask for in a pick game.  RedBlacks ML is your Free Pick for profit in this one.  Good fortune and we will see you tomorrow here at HRW.
