The Winnipeg Blue Bombers look for another victory to build on their impressive 4-0 record. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have won their last five home games. Matt Nichols is completing 69.4 percent of his passes for 855 yards, 10 touchdowns and one interception. Nichols has two or more touchdown passes in five of his last nine games.

The RedBlacks are 26-10 ATS in their last 36 road games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in July and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Blue Bombers are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games, 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 37-18-1 ATS in their last 56 games overall. The RedBlacks are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Blue Bombers last 5 home games. The under is 13-6 in RedBlacks last 19 road games.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are a team we've backed a ton already this season and they're still my pick to win the Grey Cup. I love me some Blue Bombers and this team is deadly. With that said, the Ottawa Redblacks have been road covering machines the last three years and has covered 12 of their last 17 games as road underdogs. The road team has also won six of the last seven meetings between the Redblacks and Blue Bombers. Not saying an outright win takes place here, but I have to favor the points.
