With just four games remaining in the 2019 Canadian Football League regular season and a pair of doubleheaders set for Friday and Saturday nights quartet of Week 18 matchups, let’s find out who’s in action and where the best betting value lies this weekend.

CFL Week 18 Odds, Preview and Picks

Ottawa Redblacks (3-11) at Toronto Argonauts (2-12)

The  Ottawa RedBlacks have lost seven straight games including a 21-16 defeat against Edmonton the last time out. Toronto has lost three straight and come into this affair off a resounding 55-8 smackdown loss against the BC Lions on Saturday.

Toronto beat Ottawa on the road earlier this season by the insane score of 46-17. Despite giving up just over four points per game more than their opponents in this matchup, Toronto is the pick to get the win in this one. The Argonauts are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss while Ottawa is 1-5 ATS in their last six games following an SU loss.

Pick: Toronto 38 Ottawa 31

Saskatchewan Roughriders (10-4) at Calgary Stampeders (7-8)

  • When: Friday October 11, 2019, 9:30 PM ET
  • Where: McMahon Stadium, Calgary, AB
  • CFL Week 18 Odds: Calgary -3 / Total: 47.5

Saskatchewan has won two straight and come into this contest off a 21-6 win over Winnipeg the last time out. Calgary had their four-game winning streak snapped in last weekend’s 21-17 road loss against Montreal. While the Stampeders did record an emphatic 37-10 upset win over the Roughriders, I like Saskatchewan to extract some serious revenge in this contest because they are the statistically better team on both sides of the ball. Saskatchewan has gone 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up win while Calgary has gone 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss.

Pick: Saskatchewan 27 Calgary 24

Montreal Alouettes (8-6) at Winnipeg Blue Bombers (9-6)

  • When: Saturday October 12, 2019, 4:00 PM ET
  • Where: IG Field, Winnipeg, Canada
  • CFL Week 18 Odds: Winnipeg -4.5 / Total: 47

Montreal has won two of their last three games and comes into this contest off a 23-17 home win over Calgary the last time out. Winnipeg has dropped three straight including a convincing 21-6 road loss against Saskatchewan last weekend. Montreal recorded a narrow 38-37 win over Winnipeg earlier this season, but I like the Blue Bombers to get some revenge in this one to keep their playoff hopes right where they want them to be. I know the Alouettes have gone an impressive 12-3 ATS in their last 15 road games, but Winnipeg has gone 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games. This one should be a thriller.

Pick: Winnipeg 33 Montreal 30

BC Lions (5-10) at Edmonton Eskimos (7-8)

  • When: Saturday October 12, 2019, 7:00 PM ET
  • Where: Commonwealth Stadium, Edmonton, Alberta
  • CFL Week 18 Odds: BC -2.5 / Total: 45

British Columbia is playing their best football of the season at just the right time, having won four straight games including a jaw-dropping 55-8 blowout of Toronto the last time out. Edmonton has lost five of their last six games and comes into this contest off an embarrassing 42-12 smackdown loss against Hamilton the last time out. Edmonton might be playing at home and they might have a better record in this matchup, but I like the red-hot BC Lions to extend their winning ways in week 18. BC has gone 4-1-1 ATS in their last six games while Edmonton has gone 0-4 ATS in their last four home games. BC wins and covers the chalk!

Pick: BC 38 Edmonton 24
