Harris has three touchdown passes in his last three games.

The Eskimos are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The RedBlacks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
Edmonton has beaten Ottawa in five of the six meetings but that one loss did come on the road back in June. The Redblacks are probably playing the best football of any team in the CFL right now. So, while the Eskimos likely aren't going to struggle much longer, Ottawa and the reasonable line at home is a strong play.
