The Roughriders are 6-16 ATS in their last 22 Saturday games, 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games in June and 7-3 ATS vs. a team with a losing record. The Alouettes are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings in Saskatchewan and the under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The Montreal Alouettes are just a joke of a football team right now, both SU and ATS, where they've failed to cover seven straight on the road. The Alouettes have started the season being outscored by 58 points and getting nothing offensively. At this point it doesn't matter who Montreal is playing or what the spread is, I'm fading. The Saskatchewan Roughriders should be the next team to take full advantage of the inept Alouettes, even though I hate laying such big chalk.
