Motown’s Money Analysis

The big story tonight is Edm QB Mike Reilly facing his former team. After a considerably better effort last week going 14-22-136 with 2 TD’s and no INT’s, the scary part is that the Eskimos haven’t yet found a lot of chemistry thus far in the passing game.  Edm RB Charles has 11 carries for 119 yards last week, and Reilly himself ran for 54. This could still be a number of weeks before the Eskimos really open up the passing game but as it stands, the priority is clearly establishing the run before the pass early in the season.

BC had a much better game as well in week 2 where QB Lulay went 20-34 for 249, 1 TD and 1 INT. RB Harris also had his first 100 yard game which again is where BC wants to establish themselves.  Yes it’s ironic in the CFL teams want to establish the run first, but in the big open field it’s always a strategy of coaches to setup 2nd down and short with all the open space that receivers can run in.

Early in the season this has the makings of a controlled, possession type game that both defenses will be highly motivated as Western teams playing each other tend to make it a little more personal seeing each other much more often.

The Computer projects a slight edge in the spread on Edmonton to cover 3.5 but it really likes the under by almost 5 points. I will wager a little extra on the larger edge with a small bet going on the Esks at home with more than a field goal.

Dyce for Dummies

The Lions haven’t managed to own the Eskimos lately. They only managed to beat Edmonton by 1 last season when they travelled to the Eskimos. And they split the series last year 1-3. Advantage Eskimos.

In their 3 match ups last season only 1 game, the last one, went over 50 points. Advantage the under.

The Play

BC/Edmonton 2 Units – Under 49.5 ($22 to return $42)
