Motown Money Analysis
7 points? Is this a gift or a curse?
Last week Montreal was completely in control of the game until the 20-1 run in the 3rd quarter by Winnipeg. It was appropriately answered however by the 14-0 run in the 4th by Montreal in an exciting finish to win the CFL opening game.
Winnipeg’s QB Buck Pierce looked great at times tossing 2 TD’s, but yet awful with 3 INT’s against him. A.C. – Anthony Calvillo was standard – 20-35-1-1, while neither running game really got off the ground (pun intended). Pierce all but completed the comeback but most importantly, stayed on his feet and survived to the end. Now with a little revenge now as motivation on top of being a slight dog in opening week, now turns into a TD on the road.
Despite the close game, I think the Bombers got fortunate in Game 1. The Al’s will continue to live to the lofty expectations that are placed on them every year. Anthony Calvillo just continues to make history every time he steps onto the field. The Bombers on the other hand are just happy every time Buck Pierce ends a game.
The Computer likes Montreal to cover by over 10 points. I agree with it. I think this is prime spot for Montreal and should come through at home.
Although the Computer thinks the game will remain under the total, I would be a little more cautious that this could become another shootout.
Dyce For Dummies
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers don’t seem destined to win again. They lost when they had the home field advantage it will be harder for them to over come Montreal, in Montreal. They should be feeling more confident though after they performed above expectations, at least my expectations.
But Montreal will be better prepared. The over/under also seems risky to me, I’d stick with the spread.
Montreal -7 – 3 Units ($33 to return $63)
Mon/Win under 54 – 1 Unit ($11 to return $21)
