This line is a bit confusing, as you can make a strong argument the Saskatchewan Roughriders have been the more impressive team up to this point. With the best rushing attack in the league and currently the best run defense, the Roughriders are a competitive bunch that also just took the Argonauts down to the wire on the road last week. Also, the home team has won 6 of the last 9 meetings between these teams, and the Roughriders have not lost a regular season home game since October 9 of last year. Give me the Roughriders in this near pick em spot.
