The Argonauts are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Lions are 9-20-2 ATS in their last 31 games in July and 0-4-2 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 16-6 in the last 22 meetings.
Lulay is playing some great football right now, and the BC Lions have to feel great after beating Saskatchewan in back-to-back weeks. While the extra week will help Toronto, I like BC to keep on chugging at home.
