NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Dave B gives you everything you need to know about betting on the Calgary Stampeders vs. BC Lions game coming up this weekend. The Stampeders downed the Lions in their season opener and have an arsenal of weapons on offense that should still give BC’s defense a bit of a tough time. While the Lions will be playing on home turf, Dave suggests going with Calgary, as their offensive might may be too much for the home team.
NWSB Insider Ben Lypka focuses on the idea that Travis Lulay is a great quarterback and seems like a nice guy, but that could be the problem. He’s never had a receiver he’s really connected with. Who will step up? Emmanuel Arceneaux? Nick Moore? Courtney Taylor? Marco Iannuzzi and Shawn Gore? This team needs a No. 1 target.
NWSB Insider & BC Lions blogger Travis Erbacher weighs in today with a piece about what kinds of changes the Leo’s need to make in order to repeat as playoff contenders this year. So far they have been sluggish at best. Andrew Harris and Travis Lulay have been great, but just not on the same day unfortunately. More pass rush is needed, and the youngsters need to start pulling their weight too. Click the link to see if you agree with Travis.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Bryan McFarlane recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Bombers. Giving game balls to Travis Lulay, Solomon Elimimian, and Tim Brown. Bryan says it wasn’t pretty, but the boys came together and got the job done in front of the home town fans. Next up is the tough Calgary Stampeders on the 17th. Go Lions! Special nod. Tim Brown. If you watched this game you know why I can’t name anyone else the special teams player of the game.

Check out the preview, Live betting odds and lines, and Canadian football gambling trends. The Lions look to bounce back after that pathetic performance Tuesday against Toronto. Good news is the Lions are back in town where they sure play a lot better than they do on the road.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater tells us what exactly went wrong for the Leo’s on Tuesday night in Toronto. It may have been the loss of Rookie Guard Kirby Fabien early in the contest that took the wind out of BC’s sails and put it solely behind the good ship Argonaut. A positive? Linebacker Adam Bighill was effective in his return to action, flying off the edge for 6 tackles and 2 sacks.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater returns to writing today with an analysis of the B.C. Lions offensive line this week. He points out its nice how RB Andrew “humble” Harris will always deflect and give kudos to the horses up front, the offensive linemen that have been paving his way. The big men include Ben Archibald, Jovan Olafioye, Kirby Fabien, Patrick Kabongo, and Matthew Norman. They protect Travis Lulay et al.
NWSB Gambling insider and BC Lions blogger Dave B weighs in on the CFL matchup in Week 5 between the B.C. Lions and Toronto Argonauts on Tuesday, July 30, 2013. Check out the preview, Live betting odds and lines, and Canadian football gambling trends. The Lions go for 4 wins in a row, taking on a banged up Argos squad who’s defense has been giving up loads of yards per game. Sounds like a winning formula for the Leos.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Andrew Deutschmann weighs in today with a post about the fortunate news for Isi Sofele, he is wanted after all. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats put in a waiver claim for Sofele, but according to the rules of the CFL, the team who owns the contract has a chance to keep a practice squad player claimed by another team by instantly putting him on the active roster. So after all was said and done, Sofele ended up on the 46 man roster.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater returns to his writing roots with an analysis of the B.C. Lions’ first four games. Noting that this year’s squad has the same feel of past squads due to the fact that Andrew Harris still commands where B.C. will go NOT Travis Lulay, not much has changed from one year to the next with the Lions. If they want to emerge and excite their fans further, they’ll need to improve their special teams and, in particular, their return game.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Bryan McFarlane recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Eskimos. Giving game balls to Andrew Harris, Dante Marsh, and Paul McCallum, Bryan revels in the Lions’ latest victory at BC Place and their second consecutive victory over Edmonton. Well all-in-all this was a solid team win for the Lions. If anyone was curious how the Travis Lulay versus Mike Reilly battle would go down.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions’ blogger Ben Lypka tells you why the BC Lions need to move from BC Place to the waterfront stadium where the Vancouver Whitecaps play. I know we’re only three games into the 2013 season but the Lions are averaging a pretty mediocre 26,623 – good for fifth in the CFL. They’re really only outdrawing Toronto because the only other teams below them (Hamilton and Montreal) don’t even have enough seats to draw 26,000.
