Defensively, Saskatchewan is allowing 25.1 points and 387.1 yards per game. Henoc Muamba leads the Saskatchewan Roughriders with 64 tackles, Willie Jefferson has eight sacks and Ed Gainey has eight interceptions.
The Toronto Argonauts look for a fourth straight victory to get a game above a .500 record. The Toronto Argonauts have won three straight home games. Ricky Ray is completing 69.6 percent of his passes for 4,079 yards, 21 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Ray has two or more touchdown passes in five of his last nine games. S.J. Green and Armanti Edwards have combined for 1,838 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns while DeVier Posey has 39 receptions. The Toronto Argonauts ground game is averaging 83.1 yards per contest, and James Wilder leads the way with 552 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Toronto is allowing 25.6 points and 354.6 yards per game.

The Roughriders are 6-22-1 ATS in their last 29 games in October, 2-7 ATS in their last 9 Saturday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss. The Argonauts are 1-7 ATS vs. a team with a winning record, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games and 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The Roughriders are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Toronto and the over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
Saskatchewan has won the last two meetings against Toronto, which includes an 11-point victory back in July. However, the Argonauts offense has woken up the last few games, as they're averaging 36.7 points in their last three contests and almost 400 yards of offense. If those numbers continue, it's going to be tough for the Roughriders to keep up considering they've scored just a combined 33 points in their last two games. Two hot teams, give me the home club that's on fire at the moment in this toss-up game.
