These two teams need no introduction to each other as they met just 14 days ago. The Bombers were the better of the two teams, beating the Redblacks in Ottawa 29-14. That score was rather flattering to the Redblacks, as the Bombers were in control for most of the game.

CFL Odds and Betting

With the Bombers win back on July 5, they improved their winning streak to two games against the Redblacks and have taken five of the last six games (also 5-1 against the spread). Ironically, the Redblacks have won three of the last four games played in the province of Manitoba dating back to the 2015 season.

The Blue and Gold are 5-0 ATS in the last five home games and Friday night games. They are also 4-0 ATS following a straight up win.

The Redblacks have been the opposite of the Bombers as they are 1-5 ATS in their last six games played in July dating back to last season.

Perhaps the under is the right play in this contest as the Redblacks are 13-6 on the road in their last 19 games to the under. While the Bombers are 4-1 to the under in their last five home games.

Ottawa RedBlacks

The suddenly-cold Ottawa Redblacks have lost two in a row entering this game with the Bombers.

Jonathan Jennings will get the start under centre replacing the injured Dominique Davis at the starting Quarterback position. No doubt about it, Davis has struggled with zero touchdowns and three interceptions in the pair of losses. He now has seven interceptions on the season, which is tops in the CFL. Jennings is no stranger to the Blue Bombers, having played in the West division as a member of the B.C. Lions last season. In his four-year career, he has 12,497 passing yards, 66 touchdowns and almost 1000 completions. He also has 185 career carries for 983 yards and six rushing touchdowns.

Last game the Redblacks split running assignments between Mossis Madu Jr. (11 carries for 47 yards) and John Crockett (8 carries for 62 yards). It will be interesting to see if this sort of game plan continues.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers

The Blue Bombers are 4-0 to start the year for the first time since the 2003 season. Now the Bombers want to avoid what happened that faithful 2003 year, when they proceeded to drop the next three games, ultimately finished the season with an 11-7 record.

Quarterback Matt Nichols leads the CFL with 10 passing touchdowns and only one interception. However, with 855 passing yards there isn’t one Bombers Receiver ranked in the top 15 in receiving yards. He’s attempted only 98 passes in four games.

Head Coach Mike O’Shea told the media earlier in the week he is optimistic that Jeff Hecht and Jermarkus Hardrick can play this Friday.
