Winnipeg Blue Bombers Betting Preview

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are still looking for their first win after a 0-4 start. The Blue Bombers look to avoid their first 0-5 start since the 1998 CFL season.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers vs Ottawa Redblacks Prediction

You can make a case for the Ottawa Redblacks and the free points because they’ve actually had success this season. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are below average on both sides of the ball and winless on the year, so them being favored is strange. The Blume Bombers also lost to the Redblacks this season as 7 point favorites. With all that said, the Blue Bombers aren’t as bad as they’ve looked, and you’d think they’ll get their act together sooner than alter. Let’s also not act like the Redblacks have done anything at a high level through 3 games. The Blue Bombers haven’t started a season 0-5 in nearly 3 decades. We’re not being asked to lay much. Give me the Blue Bombers and the 1.5 point chalk.
