RedBlacks vs. Lions Prediction: CFL Week 14 Point Spread, Odds
September 13, 2019, 10:00 PM ET | BC Place Stadium
This is the first game of a head-to-head series between these two teams with the first game taking place on the west coast. Both teams have not lived up to expectations this season, and both likely to miss the post season.
CFL Odds and BettingCan the Lions channel the 2018 version of the team and start a winning streak? Last year the Lions were 4-1 against the spread in September games. The Leos are also 4-1 ATS in their last five September games.
Meanwhile, the Redblacks are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall, and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games following a straight up loss.
The over is 3-1-1 in the last five games played in this series over the last three years.
The Redblacks are coming off their biggest meltdown of the season, a 46-17 loss to the last place, and provincial rival Toronto Argos. Through 11 games this season, they have a dismal 3-8 record but that stat only tells the beginning of the story. In those games the team lost six of those games by 14 points or more. In the last three games played, all double-digit losses, the Redblacks were outscored 107-42.
In their most recent game, they lost Safety Antonie Pruneau with an injury. Club officials said the injury is long-term and a major blow to the secondary.
Head Coach Rick Campbell is still undecided on which of the three Quarterbacks will start in Vancouver. Former Lion Jonathan Jennings will likely get the start. He passed for 327 yards (33-of-42) versus the Argos. However, rookie Will Arndt is expected to take more snaps down the stretch.
It’s week 14, and the BC Lions without a doubt have been the biggest disappointments in the CFL. They enter this game with the Redblacks holding a 1-10 record and are currently on a seven-game losing streak.
Last weekend against the Alouettes, the Leos fell behind 14-0 and could not quite crawl their way back dropping the game 21-16 in Montreal.
There are a couple of positives to take out of the game as the team’s offensive line – under the new leadership of coach Kelly Bates – only allowed two sacks against.
Also, receiver Bryan Burnham had his best game in over a month with an eight catch, 129 yards effort. It was his fourth 100+ yard receiving game of the year. Burnham is now tied for fourth in the CFL in receiving yards with 848.
