Here I am, back again to try and bring down the world in the roll-the-dice game of trying to pick the winners in the first few weeks of the CFL season.
This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.cfl.ca/2022/06/07/weekly-predictor-confidence-in-winnipeg/
Interesting. We completely agree. A couple of little anomalies. Ottawa is on a 6 year undefeated string in season openers & beat some pretty good clubs. So coupled with a long layoff since their last game, I have some doubts on that one. Not enough to bet against the Bombers but an upset wouldn't surprise me.
Another interesting fact since you are the only one betting on the Elks. This will be the 5th consecutive season the Lions & Elks meet in the 1st month of the season. Elks are 4-0. Sometimes these trends keep going on unexplained. How do you explain the Riders being on an 0-11-1 pre-season run?
