The Saskatchewan Roughriders just beat Edmonton on the road last week and now return home where they win by an average of 7.2 points. The Edmonton Eskimos are losing their last three games by an average of 6.7 points, and they're just 2-6 ATS on the road this season. The Saskatchewan Roughriders are 12-5 ATS this season overall and tat includes five straight covers. I'll eat the chalk with the home team that's been profitable all year long.
