Week 11 of the CFL season kicks off Thursday night from Hamilton in what Sports Interaction oddsmakers believe will be the highest-scoring game of the weekend with Edmonton visiting.

Betting Analysis

The 57-point total for the Edmonton at Hamilton matchup on Thursday is easily the highest on CFL odds board for Week 11. The current lean is on over that total. There’s very heavy action on Edmonton getting the three points. There is no moneyline option as of this writing.

On the race to 10 points, Hamilton is -135 and Edmonton +100. For the first team to score, the Ticats are -132 with a touchdown at +310. The Eskimos are -111 with a touchdown at +333. On the winning margin prop, Hamilton by 1-6 points is the +350 favourite, followed by Edmonton by 1-6 points (+375) and Ticats by 7-12 (+400).

It’s the last regular-season meeting between the two. In Week 2, Edmonton was a 6.5-point home favourite and lost 38-21. Jeremiah Masoli threw for 332 yards and three touchdowns. Luke Tasker caught five balls for 103 yards and two scores, and Mercer Timmis rushed 17 times for 133 yards and two touchdowns. High-powered Edmonton had just seven second-half points. Mike Reilly threw for 286 yards and two scores with an interception.

Edmonton is 0-2-2 against the spread in the past four meetings overall but 4-0-2 ATS in its past six in Hamilton. The total has gone under in five of the previous six there.

Edmonton Eskimos

Edmonton (6-3) is tied with Ottawa for the second-best record in the CFL but is two back of West Division-leading Calgary. For the third time this season, the Eskimos reached the 40-point barrier in a 40-24 rout of Montreal last week – they didn’t cover an 18.5-point spread, though.  Reilly was 33-for-42 passing for 424 yards and three scores to pass 25,000 career yards. He also rushed for a touchdown. The Esks had a 100-yard rusher in Shaquille Cooper (17 carries, 102 yards) and 100-yard receiver in Bryant Mitchell (seven catches, 128 yards, TD). It was Edmonton’s 10th straight win over Montreal, the second-longest active streak one team has over another in the CFL. The Esks are 7-3 ATS in their past 10 following a win but are an impossible 0-12 ATS in their past 12 Week 11 games.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats

Hamilton (3-5) comes off a bye week. It was a 6-point underdog Week 9 at Winnipeg and managed to push in a 29-23 loss, the Ticats’ fourth defeat in their past five. Masoli was 17-for-27 for 251 yards and a touchdown but his team was down 19-7 at the half and could never get all the way back. Masoli also led the team with 80 yards rushing on seven carries, while Alex Green added two scores and 63 yards on 16 carries. Brandon Banks caught six passes for 106 yards and a score.  Since taking over as Hamilton’s coach early last September, June Jones’ overall record has yet to fall below .500. That would happen with a loss here. The Ticats are 1-6 ATS in their past seven following a bye week.
