The Canadian Football League wraps up on Saturday night in British Columbia. The Saskatchewan Roughriders travel to take on the BC Lions in what is a huge division game.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders come into this game in last place of the West division with a 2-3 record.
They currently sit one game behind the Blue Bombers who come into this weekend with a 3-2 record.
After starting the season 2-1, they have had problems closing out games and it has hurt them.
Two weeks ago they lost to Winnipeg by a final score of 43-40. In their last game they lost to Montreal by one point 17-16. To play such close games in back to back weeks that were so different is odd.
While the game against Winnipeg was a shootout, the last game against Montreal was a defensive battle.
To win this game it’s all going to come down to the passing game, especially the wide receivers.
The Lions secondary can be very shaky at times, and the wide receivers of the Roughriders should be licking their chops because they could be in for a big game on Saturday night.
On the other side of this match up is the BC Lions who come into this game with a 4-2 record, and currently sit in third place in the West Division.
They have played Edmonton twice, and both games have resulted in losses. Besides those two games they are perfect so far this season. In each of the last three wins that the team has had, it has been by seven points or more.
To win this game it’s going to come down to the defensive side of the ball. The Roughriders have proven they can score runs, and the Lions need to not let them get too comfortable on offense.
They need their secondary to step up against the likes of Duron Carter and company.
4* Free CFL Betting Prediction: Lions -4.5
The BC Lions are the better team and they have looked dominant this season, and I think that will continue in this game for them.
Grey Cup Free Score Prediction: BC 32 – Saskatchewan 20
I think that the defense will play well enough to not let this game get into too much of a shootout, and the offense will score enough to come out ahead.
