CFL Week 14: 2 Simple Bets For Argos/Alouettes Afternoon Game

Sep 9, 2023

The Down By Two crew is live at BMO Field covering this week 14 showdown between the 9-1 Argos as they face the 6-5 Alouettes for the second time this season. The last time these two squared off, Club Dub came out on top 35-27 in Montreal.

So what’s the play today? We have 2 simple bets that have done us well over the course of the season and here’s why we’re taking them again.

Over 51.5 (-110)
Best Odds: Bet99

Toronto has been absolutely crushing the over this season only missing it once with their only loss back in Week 9 to the Stampeders. Last time these two squads faced each other back in Week 6 the Argos were triumphant winning 35-27 over the Alouettes. With the Argos #1 ranked offense averaging 30.4 points per game, we should see the combined point total sail over 51 today.

Argos -9.5 (-110)
Best Odds: Bet Rivers

The line has moved! Originally at -10.5 some books are now offering it at -9.5. We say take the extra point!

This Chad Kelly-lead Argos squad has been incredible this year sitting at 9-1 with the top rated offense ranking to boot. This also applies to how well they’ve done this year against the spread. Now, looking back at their last matchup against Montreal, where they won by 8 points, you may be cautious to take the 10 points here to cover. But don’t be.

The Alouettes running game has been somewhat of an issue, only posting 3 rushing touchdowns over the last 4 weeks. Toronto also ranks 2nd against the run, only allowing 78.3 yards per game. So if they can shut down the rush, look for them to cover.

These two bets have served us well this year so if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Thai will give us some interesting insight into next week’s re-match as Toronto heads back to Montreal for Friday’s game.
