Game Preview: Edmonton Elks at Winnipeg Blue Bombers
The Edmonton Elks, who have been struggling so far this season, will travel to Winnipeg to square off against the Blue Bombers. The Elks are in desperate need of a win, while the Bombers are seeking to bounce back from a loss. The Elks offense made a promising 473 net yards in their last game despite the loss. Their focus will be on protecting the football, particularly against the Bombers’ experienced defense. Key players to watch for the Elks include quarterback Taylor Cornelius and wide receiver Kyran Moore.
The Bombers, on the other hand, need to reignite their defense after allowing 19 points in the fourth quarter of their last game. Their key defensive player Demerio Houston will be on high alert against Cornelius and his set of receivers. On the offensive front, the Bombers will rely on receivers Dalton Schoen, Drew Wolitarsky, and Nic Demski. Their returnee Kenny Lawler is also expected to make a significant impact in the game.
Betting Information and Advice
With the current odds favouring the Blue Bombers, bettors leaning towards the underdogs could find value in betting on the Elks’ spread. While the Bombers are coming off a loss, they are the higher-ranked team and have demonstrated more consistent play this season. Those interested in the over/under bet should note that the total has been set at 45.5. Given the Elks’ recent offensive surge, it’s possible the game could go over the set total.
