Laurier Golden Hawks Moneyline

In a closely contested clash between the fourth-seeded Laurier Golden Hawks and the fifth-seed Carleton Ravens, this playoff opening round clash is set to be action-packed. In what will be their first meeting of the season, we are backing the Golden Hawks to soar to victory against the Ravens.

This season the Golden Hawks have been the better team when directly compared to the Ravens in almost everyway. While they may have finished with identical records, the Golden Hawks only losses have come from the top-three ranked teams in their division, while the Ravens sport a loss to the seventh seeded Varsity Blues.

Additionally to this, when you factor in the Golden Hawks superior play on both sides of the footballl compared to the Ravens, this is an easy bet to make. Hammer the Golden Hawks to reign victorious over the Ravens, ending their season and moving one step closer to claiming the schools first Yates Cup since 2016.

Queens Gaels -20.5

Looking like not just Yates Cup contenders, but a sleeper pick to win the Vanier Cup (+1500), the Queens Gaels are one of the top football teams in the country. Facing off against a 4-4 Toronto Varsity Blues squad, back the Gaels to emerge with the win in a lopsided matchup.

When these teams faced off in the regular season, the Gaels dominated the contest en route to a 47-25 victory in their season opener. Every week since that game, the Gaels have continued to build momentum and have looked better and better as the season has progressed, while the Varsity Blues have been mediocre at best.

Back the Gaels to runaway with this one, knocking the Varsity Blues around from pillar-to-post securing the win, as well as cashing in all bets on them to cover the 20.5-point spread.

Windsor Lancers VS Ottawa Gee-Gees Under 48.5

In a matchup that will be much closer than many might assume, the Windsor Lancers and Ottawa Gee-Gees are ready to do battle in what is sure to be a low-scoring and intense matchup.

The Lancers and Gee-Gees faced off in their respective season openers, with the Gee-Gees taking the narrow 19-16 victory. The Gee-Gees split the uprights to secure the victory in the dying seconds of the game but in the playoffs there’s no room for error. The Lancers matchup well against the Gee-Gees, able to stay within striking distance of any competition.

Look for both teams to play conservatively, looking to maintain a lead and control possession of the football to clinch their birth to the next round of the OUA playoffs. With both sides taking a cautious approach, bet the Under in this playoff matchup that may not have many points scored, but could be the most exciting matchup of the quarterfinals.
