The Edmonton Elks need a win after losing to the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Montreal Alouettes. The Edmonton Elks have lost 6 straight games overall. McLeod Bethel-Thompson is completing 72.6 percent of his passes for 638 yards, 2 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Kurleigh Gittens Jr. and Dillon Mitchell have combined for 309 receiving yards on 28 catches, while Eugene Lewis has 9 receptions.

Nyles Morgan leads the Edmonton Elks with 14 tackles, Michael Brodrique has 1 sack and Kai Gray has 1 interception.

Toronto Argonauts Betting Preview

The Toronto Argonauts look for another win after beating the BC Lions in their season opener. The Argonauts look for back to back 2-0 starts. Cameron Dukes is completing 77.8 percent of his passes for 254 yards, 3 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. Dejon Brissett and Rasheed Bailey have combined for 102 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns, while Ka’Deem Carey has 4 receptions.

Toronto Argonauts vs Edmonton Elks Prediction

This doesn’t feel like an ideal spot for the Edmonton Elks to get in the win column. The Elks aren’t finishing drives offensively, the defense has issues stopping the run, and those struggles came at home. The Elks now take the road for the first time. Meanwhile, the Toronto Argonauts have had an extra week to prepare for this game and with just one contest under their belt they looked fantastic in the trenches on both sides of the ball. The Argos have won 3 straight games against the Elks, and those wins came by an average of 13.3 points. I’ll take the Argonauts by a touchdown.
