Two undefeated teams headline week four of the young CFL season in the Nation’s Capital Friday night. The Bombers and Redblacks may be perfect so far, but both have some difficulties closing out games in the early part of the season.

CFL Odds and Betting

The Redblacks open up as slight 3.5-point favourites in Ottawa against the Blue Bombers, but beware. The Bombers match up well with the Redblacks and have won the last three games head to head against the Redblacks in Ottawa. In fact they are 4-0 against the spread in Ottawa dating back to the end of the 2015 season, and 4-1 ATS overall in their last five games against them.

These two teams like to score points against each other, as the over is 4-1 in the last five games in Ottawa, and 4-1 to the over overall. The opening number in this game is 54.5.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers

The Blue Bombers may have found their deep receiver threat this past weekend in a win against the Eskimos. Lucky Whitehead impressed many in training camp and got his first big taste of CFL season in week three. The 27 year old from Florida Atlantic caught seven passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns, and accounted for 77.5 percent of Matt Nichols 200 yards passing in the game.

Nichols is ranked eighth in passing yards with 384 through two games. His six passing touchdowns is tied for first with Trevor Harris.

The team is averaging 30.5 points per game, and continue to depend on the defence which has allowed 22 points, currently second in that category behind only the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Now the 2-0 Bombers begin a stretch of five consecutive games (July 5 – August 1) against the East division starting with the Redblacks.

Ottawa RedBlacks

Coming off a bye week in week three, with a 2-0 record the Redblacks are an early season surprise in the CFL. The offence has been very good totalling 76 points in the first two games for an average of 38 points per game. The defence however has not been as good, giving up 69 points for a total of 34.5 per game. Could this game be a shootout? Or will the Blue Bombers defence find a way of slowing down this Redblacks attack?

At the start of the season, there were plenty of questions about journeyman Quarterback Dominique Davis. 2019 was the start of Davis’ fourth CFL season and the 29 year old had a grand total of two starts. This year through two starts he’s thrown for 630 yards, three touchdowns and he’s also rushed for three majors as well. Davis is coming off his best professional start going 30-for-39 in week two, and was named a top performer. He’s found a good chemistry with receiver Dominique Rhymes has he totalled 168 yards of receiving in that same week two game.

Mossis Madu Jr. continues to be a work-horse running back for the Redblacks with 38 carries (162 yards rushing) in the first two games. His numbers will continue to improve as the season progresses.
