The Winnipeg Blue Bombers secured their first win of the season against the Ottawa REDBLACKS, leaving the Edmonton Elks as the only winless team in the West Division. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats, also winless, are on a bye week, giving the Elks a chance to move out of the bottom spot as they host the Ottawa REDBLACKS. The Elks are favored by 3.5 points, and most CFL writers predict they will win at Commonwealth Stadium on Sunday. Additionally, the Alouettes and Roughriders aim to continue their perfect starts to the season, while the Bombers look to start a winning streak in Calgary.

Case Study

TORONTO — Is this the week?

We’ve seen the Winnipeg Blue Bombers climb out of the winless column, with a run-heavy, defensively sound showing against the Ottawa REDBLACKS. The Edmonton Elks sat idle on their bye week and watched as the Bombers left them alone in the cellar of the West Division.

This week, we have a similar scenario. The winless Hamilton Tiger-Cats are on a bye and the Elks are rested, waiting at the end of a long week and are favourites as they host the Ottawa REDBLACKS.

The Elks are 3.5-point favourites on Fan Duel and four of’s six writers think that they’ll defend Commonwealth Stadium on Sunday. Meanwhile, the Alouettes and Roughriders are in action this week, looking to extend the perfect starts to their respective seasons and the Bombers head to Calgary, intent on hitting their first win streak of 2024. What do you think will happen? Visit the CFL’s Game Zone and play CFL Pick Em, presented by Old Dutch to make your picks for this week.

Let’s get into how the writers think this week will shake out.
