The Betting Perspective - EDM @ BC
Edmonton @ BC (-7): TOTAL 46.5
The BC Lions and Edmonton Elks both conclude their season Friday night in Vancouver.
The Lions and Elks have shifted focus to the 2022 season, now that their playoff hopes for this year are gone.
Edmonton did find a way to win Tuesday in Toronto, because the contest meant very little to the Argos, as the boatmen sat multiple starters including quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson. The victory ended a seven game losing skid and recorded Taylor Cornelius' first win in the CFL as a starter. Despite the result, the Elks did not look great, Cornelius chucked three interceptions and completed less than fifty-percent of his pass attempts.
The Lions get one final chance to end their miserable losing streak that has now stretched itself to seven games, BC fell at home to the Calgary Stampeders last week 33-23. Rick Campbell's team have not performed well against divisional opponents, their record is 1-5 against West teams in 2021. To make matters worst, the Lions have been bad on home field, they're 1-5 and haven't won a game in Vancouver since early September.
The Lions are currently laying a touchdown and that might be too big of a line to not take the shot with Edmonton. The Elks have covered four straight spreads against BC, including a Week 3 21-16 Elks win at BC Place.
BC has the worst pass defense in the CFL, so it's a huge opportunity for Cornelius to put up big numbers in the final game of the year.
Pick: Edmonton +7
