The CFL Playoffs are in full swing with each Conferences Finals set to take place this Sunday. The BC Lions and Calgary Stampeders were the top two teams from the regular season in the CFL, but being in the same Conference they will have to battle it out for the right to head to the 100th Grey Cup, which is taking place in Toronto.
With the Lions clinching the Conference, the Stampeders had to play in a first round playoff game, which they won over the Saskatchewan Roughriders 36-30 last week in Calgary. This weekends match-up will be much more difficult with the Lions going in as decent sized favourites.
Stampeders vs Lions Odds
The following odds were taken from SportsInteraction.com, our top rated sportsbook for Canadian residents.
Calgary +6.5 (-110)
BC Lions -6.5 (-110)
BC Lions -295
Over 51 (-110)
Under 51 (-110)
As you can see the Lions are almost touchdown favourites in this one and about 2.5/1 favourites to win the game. In playoff games like these I always like to bet the moneyline, but the spread and over/under are also great options.
Points To Consider
The Lions lead the season series between the two teams 2-1, but the Stampeders won the last game between the two 41-21. The only game playing in BC though the Lions won 27-22.
Calgary has won 4 of their last 5 games, albeit against fairly weak opposition (except the win over BC). BC has also won 4 of their last 5.
BC is 8-1 at home this season, while the Stampeders are only 5-4 on the road.
These are really the two best teams in the CFL this season, but a big edge has to go to the Lions for home field advantage. I like the Lions moneyline bet in this one.
