There's value with the Blue Bombers and the free field goal considering they've won five straight overall and four straight against the Saskatchewan Roughriders. However, the Roughriders have found something on the offensive end, as they've combined for 95 points in their last two games and have been even better at home this season. The Blue Bombers are going to have a hard time matching Saskatchewan score for score, which is why I'm backing the home team.
