Saskatchewan Roughriders vs Hamilton Tiger-Cats Prediction

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have the best scoring offense in the CFL, so despite a winless start, there’s some hope for them moving forward and makes them worth a look as underdogs. The problem is the Tiger-Cats have lost 5 straight games dating back to last season and are 1-3-1 ATS during hat span. At some point, they have to show us something with results. The Saskatchewan Roughriders are 2-0 on the year despite two road games, and they’re first in rush defense, which is key in expected close games. The home team has won 7 of the last 10 games between the Roughriders and Tiger-Cats. We’re not being asked to lay much. Give me the Roughriders and the small chalk.
