Football Betting: CFL Western Division Showdown in the PrairiesPublished July 30, 2015 by Sol FH
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers host the BC Lions tonight at 1:35 GMT for control over third place in the West.
The Canadian Football League is in full swing and the regular season has been exactly what football fans need before the start of the NFL season. The CFL is the second best league in the world after the NFL and thousands of players get their start in the league before heading to the US.
Tonight's game from Investors Group Field in Winnipeg, Manitoba will be for third place in the Western Division and a chance to tie the Calgary Stampeders in second place next week. The Lions are the current third place with a record of 2-2, but are coming off a tough loss to the Toronto Argonauts last week 30-27. The Lions need to bounce back and make a statement in Winnipeg tonight so they can get closer to a spot in the offseason.
The Blue Bombers have the home team advantage tonight and will need it against the Lions. They are a solid team this year, unlike past seasons, and have a real shot at the playoffs sitting at 2-3 right now. Winnipeg needs a successful season this year and build for next year. They may not have a chance of making the Grey Cup this season but they could use the experience in the playoffs for their young roster.
