CFL Week 16 Expert ATS Picks & Predictions

Saskatchewan Roughriders (-2.5)

Hungry for a win so that they can hang onto their spot in the 2023 CFL playoffs, expect to see the Saskatchewan Roughriders turn in a terrific showing against the Ottawa Redblacks on Friday night.

While the Roughriders have had an up-and-down season, they’ve certainly had more to be happy about than their Week 16 opponents. Facing a Redblacks squad that has lost eight-straight games, look for the Roughriders to capitalize on their oppositions misfortune, routing them on the road.

The Roughriders have shown glimpses of terrific potential this season, having churned out impressive performances against tough competition win wins against the Lions and Blue Bombers.

The only time these two squads locked horns this season, we say the Roughriders take the narrow victory over the Redblacks by a score of 26-24.

With this high upside, the Roughriders are a great bet to cover the one-score spread against the Redblacks, continuing to gather momentum for a postseason run, and kicking off you Week 16 with a win.

Edmonton Elks (+7.5)

Riding high after winning their fourth game in five weeks, the Edmonton Elks are continuing to ascend the CFL standings and look poised to sneak into the 2023 playoffs. While there’s still a long road ahead of them, they will have a big test in front of them as they take on a tough BC Lions team.

While the Lions have proven themselves to be potential Grey Cup contenders, look for them to struggle against the rejuvenated Elks, as the home team covers the spread as underdogs. Having stayed within striking distance even in defeat, the Elks have finished within 7.5-points of the lead when all is said and done in three of their losses this season.

Expect the Elks to make this game a competitive contest, forcing the Lions into tough situations on the gridiron, applying pressure early, and feeding off the energy of their faithful home crowd.

Bank on the Elks to cover the spread as underdogs, against a Lions team that has failed to cover as a favourite in three of their last four games, scoring you a juicy payday with this expert pick.

Montreal Alouettes (-2.5)

Hoping to shake off their current four-game losing skid, expect to see the Montreal Alouettes take out their frustrations on the Calgary Stampeders this Saturday.

After suffering losses to the Argonauts in back-to-back weeks, as well as top dogs in the West, the Lions and Winnipeg Blue Bombers, it’s safe to say the Alouettes have come out the other side of a murderers row in the CFL.

Now facing a team that sports a losing record, expect to see a massive output from the Al’s in this weekends action.

The last time these two teams squared off, the Alouettes claimed the win by 25-18 in a strong showing. Primed to replicate their efforts from Week 8, hammer the Alouettes to cover the point spread in Week 16.

Toronto Argonauts (-9.5)

Having found a seemingly never-ending amount of success in 2023, the defending Grey Cup champions have continued to steamroll the competition as they look to squash their nearby rivals, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

After demolishing the Ti-Cats by double-digits in all three of their previous head-to-head matchups this season, don’t expect to see anything different this weekend as the Argo’s once again brutalize their rivals at home.

With the Tiger-Cats having struggled to pick up wins this season, it’s safe to say these teams are on opposite sides of the spectrum. Hammer the Argonauts to cover the spread as favourites this weekend, capping off your CFL Week 16 bets with a win.
