The Saskatchewan Roughriders ground game is averaging 172 yards per contest, and William Powell leads the way with 104 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Saskatchewan is allowing 23 points and 232 yards per game. Derrick Moncrief leads the Saskatchewan Roughriders with seven tackles, Mike Edem has two pass deflections and Dyshawn Davis has one pass deflection.

The Ottawa Redblacks look for a quick 2-0 start after beating the Calgary Stampeders on the road as nine-point underdogs. The Ottawa Redblacks have won five of their last seven home games. Dominique Davis is completing 65.9 percent of his passes for 276 yards, zero touchdowns and four interceptions. Davis has three touchdown passes and five interceptions in his last 53 pass attempts. RJ Harris and Brad Sinopoli have combined for 157 receiving yards on 17 receptions while Caleb Holley has five receptions.

Corey Tindal leads the Ottawa Redblacks with four tackles, Michael Wakefield has one sack and Jonathan Rose has one interception.

The Roughriders are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games in June, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games in Week 2. The RedBlacks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games in June and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Roughriders are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings and the over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. The under is 7-3 in RedBlacks last 10 Thursday games. The under is 4-1-1 in Roughriders last 6 games overall.

The Ottawa Redblacks are coming off the most impressive win of opening week and now get to go home and play a team they've won three of the last four meetings against. The Saskatchewan Roughriders didn't look great in their opener and are going to have issues all season if they can't figure out the quarterback situation. While we're still feeling these teams out, there's no reason to bet against the Redblacks based on what they showed us opening week.
