The score reached at least 49 points in four of their last five matches. A highlight of their season was a commanding 47-17 win against the Alouettes, showcasing their scoring prowess. We expect this pattern to continue with total points exceeding 46.
Winnipeg Blue Bombers Total Points – Over 27.5 @ 1.84 (21/25)
The Bombers, known for their exceptional attacking prowess, have consistently demonstrated their offensive strength, scoring at least 30 points in four recent games. This track record positions them as a strong contender to exceed 27 points in the final. Despite the Alouettes’ demonstrating defensive resilience at crucial times in their campaign, it seems unlikely they will be able to halt the Bombers’ momentum.
Montreal – Handicap (+8) @ 1.87 (5/6)
Despite a few uneven performances in the regular season, the Alouettes have managed a remarkable turnaround. They’ve showcased strong defensive plays at crucial moments throughout the season, earning their spot in the final. Considering this resilience, we do not expect them to lose the final by a margin of 8 points or more. Even though their last encounter with the Bombers ended in a 30-point loss, that result seems more like an anomaly rather than a trend.
