It has been a vastly different start to the season for these teams, with Toronto struggling at 0-3 and the Blue Bombers coming out hot at 3-0.
However, form can be temporary in the CFL and upsets do happen. It would take a big upset for Toronto to defy their +6700 odds to win the CFL Championship, but one game at a time will be their mantra.

CFL Predictions – Toronto Argonauts Form
It hasn’t been good viewing for Toronto Argonauts’ fans this season. They’re 0-3 after suffering a devastating one-point loss to British Columbia last week.
That followed an opening week loss to Hamilton (64-14) and a 32-7 loss to Saskatchewan. They have been underdogs in all three games to date, but they did cover the spread on July 6.
The spread was +8 and they took the BC Lions to within a point. That should give them confidence going forward because they’re in desperate need of it.
Toronto averages almost 60 yards less per game than the league average and they give up 130 more yards on defence. Those statistics aren’t easy on the eyes and it’s a reason why they’re 0-3.
In all major statistical categories, the Argonauts either rank 8th or 9th, except in offensive passing yards where they rank 6th. A total overhaul of their game will be needed to beat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
CFL Predictions – Winnipeg Blue Bombers Form
After posting a 29-14 win over Ottawa, the Blue Bombers are now the favorites with bookmakers to win the CFL this season.
Sitting at 3-0 after posting wins over BC Lions, Edmonton and Ottawa, Winnipeg looks a great chance to extend their winning record to 4-0.
They have covered the spread in all three games, including a –5 spread against Edmonton, where they won by seven points.
It has been defence which has been to the fore for the Blue Bombers. They rank 1st in defensive rush yards allowed and second in total defensive yards allowed. Those are some good stats and that’s not mentioning their own run game.
Winnipeg averages 133 yards per game on the ground and their “ground-and-pound” style has worked wonders to date. They don’t need a flashy quarterback to win games and they are sticking with what works.
It’s tough to find any negatives for the Blue Bombers coming into this game.
