New quarterbacks in place for Toronto Ottawa CFL Expert Pick of 7:30 PM start tonight. Hope you are all enjoying your weekends here at HRWager. Injury plays a pivotal role in this game. Ricky Ray got crumpled last week forcing the Argos to go with a new signal caller on the road. However, Ottawa also has made a change. This has not detracted the fans from making a -8 home favorite into a double digit spread at ten. Are the RedBlacks this strong here or is there another way to extract some profit with our CFL game of the Week?
Toronto Ottawa : Experience Gap
Henry Burris is fighting for his job after jamming a finger early in the season. This saw Trevor Harris take over and make a RedBlacks offense into a very dangerous and dynamic unit. Now with Harris and his knee a concern, Burris has rushed back to try and reclaim the role as his own. At 41 years old, he has few miles left on him but wants to finalize the epic run he had with the team last year. For our betting purposes, older quarterbacks have not fared well coming out of the gate. Mobility and throwing issues have caused them to suffer slow starts.
Slow Half Projected
Now we have a Toronto team that is very able to go on the fly changing their offense to a new qb. Kilgore gets the call after Ricky Ray’s knee got hurt shelving him anywhere from three to six weeks. With all the adjustments, few things can rattle a quarterback more than early turnovers. Look for safe situations and a little clock milking so that he can keep the game close in the first half until he can get his bearings.
Double digit dog is up in the air. Ottawa covering it is an iffy proposition. One that has much more stability is the total. First half points has been bet up from 25 to 25 1/2. This is optimistic as the teams will start off slow. Go with the under 25 1/2 first half for your CFL Pick of the Week. Good fortune and we will see you tomorrow here at HRWager.
