CFL Week 8 Expert ATS Picks & Predictions

Ottawa Redblacks (-3.5)

Starting to peak at the right time in the season, the Ottawa Redblacks are quickly developing into one of the best stories of the 2023 CFL season. Being led by stud rookie quarterback Dustin Crum, the Redblacks have looked like a completely new team since he entered the lineup.

With their defence remaining strong, the Redblacks appear poised to dominate the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to kickoff Week 8.

Afterbeing dismantled by the Toronto Argonauts in Week 7, look for the tough times to keep on coming for the Ti-Cats. With a banged up roster facing one of the hottest teams in the league, the Redblacks are set to easily defeat the Ti-Cats at home this Thursday night.

Back the Redblacks to take care of business in front of their home crowd, redeeming themselves for this one-score loss in Week 5, and extending their win-streak to three in a row as they cover the spread.

Toronto Argonauts (-10.5)

Primed to remain undefeated to kickstart their 2023 CFL season, the Argonauts are ready to improve to 5-0 as they cover a two-score point spread as favourites against a streaky Saskatchewan Roughriders team.

After making light work of the Tiger-Cats last week, the Argonauts continued to showcase their incredible roster to the fullest. With their high-octane offence scoring-at-will, the Argos have been too much for any team to compete with so far this season.

Taking on a Roughriders squad that was only able to produce nine points against the BC Lions, look for the Argonauts to easily run up the score against the Roughriders, turning this upcoming tilt into a lopsided blowout in a hurry.

BC Lions (-9)

While they may be without the service of starting quarterback Vernon Adams Jr., the BC Lions are still a great bet to cover the spread as favourites against the winless Edmonton Elks.

With back-up QB Dane Evans filling in admirably at the top of the Lions depth chart, their star-studded roster will be enough to overpower a weak Elks team. With speedy wideout threats as well as a ferocious defensive-unit, look for the Lions to outwork the Elks on each possession, using their superior talent to build a sizable lead.

Back the Lions to cover the nine-point spread as favourites and cap off your Saturday night with a massive win on your CFL bet slips.

Montreal Alouettes (-2.5)

In a battle between middle of the pack teams, look for the Montreal Alouettes to secure the edge against the Calgary Stampeders in their upcoming clash.

While both sides have shown glimpses of terrific upside throughout the season, neither team has been able to capture it with consistency. With each side of this matchup under .500, look for this to become a competitive contest, with the Alouettes gaining the edge thanks to their stellar defence.

Cody Fajardo and company have had a tough time putting up points for the Alouettes so far this season, but their defence has been good enough to keep them within close games throughout this years campaign. Taking on a turnover prone Stampeders offence, watch as the Alouettes defence makes a massive impact on the outcome of this game.

Back the Alouettes to secure the much-needed victory thanks to their defence, covering the thin 2.5-point spread, and putting a bow on a successful Week of CFL bets.
