The under is 5-2 in Argonauts last 7 games overall. The Roughriders are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 meetings in Toronto and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have shown to be the better team this season up to this point, and they’re one of the more balanced teams in the league overall. I understand why they’d be favored here. However, the Toronto Argonauts are supposed to be a team that can make a run in the East, and they need to take advantage at home if they’re going to do that. The Argonauts have also had an extra week to prepare for this game, which should count for something. I’ll take a shot with the home dog.
