The RedBlacks are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games following a straight up win, 20-7 ATS in their last 27 road games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Roughriders are 7-22-1 ATS in their last 30 games in October, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-2 ATS vs. a team with a losing record. The over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The under is 4-0 in Roughriders last 4 games overall and the under is 7-1-1 in RedBlacks last 9 games overall.
Both teams are playing solid football as of late, but the Saskatchewan Roughriders have won the last three meetings against Ottawa. The Redblacks are also being outscored by six points in their last three games and that defense is getting torched in the passing game. I know Ottawa is an impressive 7-1 ATS on the road this season, but I give the edge to the Roughriders in this spot at home. Saskatchewan has been a little more consistent.
