Defensively, Saskatchewan is allowing 25.8 points and 388.8 yards per game. Henoc Muamba leads the Saskatchewan Roughriders with 59 tackles, Willie Jefferson has seven sacks and Ed Gainey has eight interceptions.
The Ottawa Redblacks could use a spark of consistency after splitting their last 10 games. The Ottawa Redblacks have lost four of their last six home games. Trevor Harris is completing 70.6 percent of his passes for 3,724 yards, 23 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Harris and Drew Tate have combined for 25 touchdown passes this season.

The Roughriders are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Friday games, 5-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games in September. The RedBlacks are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss and 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
Both of these teams have been in a lot of close games and the Roughriders haven't had much road success this season. The Redblacks are 9-5 ATS this season and are being outscored by just two points in their last three games. Of course, Saskatchewan has also been dealing with injured quarterbacks, which doesn't exactly help their case heading into this game. Also, the last three meetings between the Roughriders and Redblacks have been decided by a combined six points. I'll take Ottawa and the free field goal here.
