The Saskatchewan Roughriders and Edmonton Eskimos meet Saturday in CFL action at Commonwealth Stadium.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders look for another victory after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Saskatchewan Roughriders have won four of their last six road games. Cody Fajardo is completing 71.5 percent of his passes for 3,873 yards, 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Fajardo has one or less touchdown passes in 10 of his last 11 games. Shaquelle Evans and Naaman Roosevelt have combined for 1,998 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Kyran Moore has 63 receptions. The Saskatchewan Roughriders ground game is averaging 116.2 yards per contest, and William Powell leads the way with 997 yards and 12 touchdowns. Defensively, Saskatchewan is allowing 21.8 points and 322.3 yards per game. Solomon Elimimian leads the Saskatchewan Roughriders with 81 tackles, Charleston Hughes has 15 sacks and Loucheiz Purifoy has three interceptions.
The Edmonton Eskimos need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Edmonton Eskimos have split their last six home games. Trevor Harris is completing 71.7 percent of his passes for 3,706 yards, 15 touchdowns and four interceptions. Harris has three or more touchdown passes in six of his last 15 games. Greg Ellingson and Ricky Collins have combined for 2,098 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while DaVaris Daniels has 51 receptions. The Edmonton Eskimos ground game is averaging 91.3 yards per contest, and CJ Gable leads the way with 997 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Edmonton is allowing 21.9 points and 311.6 yards per game. Larry Dean leads the Edmonton Eskimos with 80 tackles, Mike Moore has eight sacks and Tyquwan Glass has three interceptions.
The Roughriders are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Eskimos are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. West and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Roughriders are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings and the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Eskimos last 5 Saturday games. The over is 5-2 in Roughriders last 7 Saturday games.
The Edmonton Eskimos have won seven of the last 10 meetings against the Saskatchewan Roughriders, and the home team has also won seven of the last 10 games as well. The Saskatchewan Roughriders are 6-2 ATS on the road this season and have covered six of their last seven, while the Eskimos are free falling and haven't been profitable ATS during this stretch. However, if the Edmonton Eskimos are going to turn their season around and make that last second push, it would probably be here at home against an opponent they've beaten up on over the years. I'll take my chances with the home dog.
