Nik’s Picks – Week 14 CFL Predictions

Friday

Ottawa Redblacks @ B.C. Lions:
On September 5, 2014, B.C. and Ottawa combined for 447 yards and 12 points in a 7-5 Lions win. Yes, you read that right. Friday should have more than 12 points, but the level of play will likely be comparable. Both clubs rank near the bottom in most team categories, while the Lions are winless at home and the Redblacks’ win in Calgary feels like seasons ago. The Lions are playing slightly better as of late and are awaiting the Redblacks, who have to fly across two time zones for an unlikely Jon Jennings revenge game. Lions by 11.
Ottawa 13 B.C. 24
Best bet: Under 50

Saturday

Hamilton Tiger-Cats @ Calgary Stampeders:
Hamilton hasn’t beaten Calgary in Calgary since July 4, 2004, and without Jeremiah Masoli, that streak will likely remain. Hamilton’s fast, quick-hitting offence lines up well against Calgary’s physical, zone-heavy defence, but Dane Evans hasn’t shown he can go out West and thrive. With loads of talent, the Tabbies have yet to hit their potential on defence which is a good sign for Bo Levi Mithcell who’s been terrific since re-joining the Stamps’ lineup. Offence will likely prevail on both sides but stick with the trend. Calgary by six.
Hamilton 26 Calgary 32
Best bet: Over 51.5

Montreal Alouettes @ Saskatchewan Roughriders:
When Mother Nature gifted Saskatchewan a 17-10 win in Montreal in Week 9, neither offence did and the game was determined by the Als committing some uncharacteristic turnovers. Now in Regina, Cody Fajardo’s offence should be hungrier than ever to earn a victory. With Vernon Adams Jr. and William Stanback, Montreal could run all over the Riders who rank sixth in the league against the run. Montreal is 10-3 against the spread in their last 13 road games, but the Riders should bounce back here. Saskatchewan by five.
Montreal 19 Saskatchewan 24
Best bet: Under 49.5
