We've made tons of money fading the Roughriders over the years, but they're coming off a overtime win over the Eskimos and have to be feeling good about themselves right now. Also, Saskatchewan has covered four straight games. While the Tiger-Cats have one of those teams that have beat up on the Roughriders lately, there's value with the points and the home team. Have to ride the wave while you have a chance.
