Edmonton Elks Betting Preview

The Edmonton Elks are still looking for their first win of the season after an 0-3 start. The Edmonton Elks have lost 7 straight games overall. McLeod Bethel-Thompson is completing 73 percent of his passes for 978 yards, 6 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Dillon Mitchell and Kurleigh Gittens Jr. have combined for 481 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns, while Eugene Lewis has 12 receptions. The Edmonton Elks ground game is averaging 48.7 yards per contest, and Kevin Brown leads the way with 100 yards on 25 carries. Defensively, Edmonton is allowing 30.3 points and 371.7 yards per game.

BC Lions Betting Preview

The BC Lions look for a third straight win to build on their 2-1 start. The BC Lions are 1-0 SU at home this season. Vernon Adams Jr. is completing 66.3 percent of his passes for 1,038 yards, 6 touchdowns and 1 interception. Alexander Hollins and Justin McInnis have combined for 691 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns, while Travis Fulgham has 6 receptions.

BC Lions vs Edmonton Elks Prediction

The BC Lions have shown us more up to this point, and they should be favored given the one-sided history. The Lions have won and covered each of the last 7 games against the Elks. The Elks haven’t won a game since September 15, so there’s good reason to be low on them right now. With all that said, the Elks have had all 3 of their games this season decided by single digits, and their last two games were decided by a combined 6 points. A bounce here or a bounce there, and we’re looking at the Elks in a difference light. The Elks are also first in pass defense, which is a nice counter toward the Lions, who have the best passing offense and total offense. The hook could be key here. I’ll take a stab with the Elks and the 7.5 free points.
