BC Lions vs. Saskatchewan Roughriders

Friday, October 18, 2019 at 9:00 PM (BC Place)

SSK -3.5 O/U 47.5


With the Roughriders the team is sitting in second place in the West. That comes from getting beaten by the Stampeders in the last game. The game against the Stampeders was definitely a struggle and it was one that the Roughriders lost by only 2 points and it was a road game so losing by only 2 points was not that bad for the Roughriders.
The game did see Cody Fajardo do decent at the quarterback position with a total of 209 yards and a touchdown, but he was picked off once in the game. The sad part for the Roughriders isFajardo was the leading rusher as well with 10 carries for only 67 yards.

The Lions are horrible on the year so far. The team has barely won any games at 5 victories and 11 losses. Now, the Lions have to face the Roughriders who are one of the better teams in not only their division, but the entire league. The Lions are also looking to try to figure out what they can do to improve on their anemic offense.

The last game out for the Lions was a 19-6 loss to Edmonton. The game did see some a quarterback tandem fro BC. Danny O’Brien threw the ball for only 103 yards and a pick. Mike Reilly threw for only 6 yards. John White led the Lions on the ground with 11 carries for 84 yards, but failed to score again.

BC may end be playing at home in this game, but it will be hard for them to top the Roughriders who are playing at a high right now. Fajardo on his own will win this game for the Roughriders as the Lions cannot close down the multifaceted quarterback. Final Score Prediction, Saskatchewan Roughriders win 24-3.
