The Roughriders are looking a lot like the team from last season in the fact they're playing little defense and can't put together a complete perfrmance. The Ottawa Redblacks are flat out rolling right now and are tough to bet against. Not to mention Ottawa made light work of Saskatchewan last season. Give me the road team.
