NWSB Insider and BC Lions Blogger Ben Lypka recaps the drama between the team, Arland Bruce and Wally Buono. Bruce is upset that he didn’t get a call from Buono, Mike Benevides or anyone involved with the BC Lions. But that’s the nature of the CFL. The Lions face Bruce and the Montreal Alouettes tonight. And, of course, everyone loves balloons.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Dave B gives you everything you need to know about betting on the BC Lions vs. Montreal Alouettes game coming up this weekend. The line for this one favors the Leo’s by 9. The over/under is set at 47.5. The Lions didn’t look terrific in a win last week against Calgary but they were certainly good enough. Travis Lulay completed 16 of 28 passes for 223 yards and Andrew Harris ran for just 56 yards.
NWSB Insider & BC Lions blogger Travis Erbacher weighs in today with a piece about what the Lions may be able to take away from their most important game of the year thus far. It was a different style of game played this time between the Leo’s and the Stampeders, but Travis would still like to see Travis Lulay open up down field a bit more often.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Bryan McFarlane weighs in today with a post giving the Leo’s some grades for the first third of their 2013 season. He points out the key to the home stretch of this year for B.C. will be winning the season series versus Calgary, and then of course finishing business the way they couldn’t last November. Andrew Harris has been the offense’s rock and much needed spark thus far in the year. On D there is a lack of pressure generated up front.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Andrew Deutschmann weighs in today with a post about what he’s watching on the field tonight in the BC vs. Calgary matchup. Going into this season, if you told him the Lions would be last in the league in sacks in Week 8, Andrew would have said you were crazy. Sadly, you’re not crazy. The biggest reason for this seems to be moving Keron Williams. Special Teams. Whether it’s blocking or poor decision-making by Tim Brown, something needs to change soon.
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 Gambling insider and BC Lions blogger Dave B weighs in on the CFL matchup in Week 6 between the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the B.C. Lions on Monday, August 5th, 2013. 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.
