The Saskatchewan Roughriders (13-5) meet the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (11-7) in the Western Division Final at the Mosaic Stadium on Sunday afternoon, with a place in the Grey Cup Final at stake.
This will be the first time that the Roughriders have played for the West Division crown since they won the Grey Cup in 2013.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers pulled off a minor upset in eliminating the defending Grey Cup holders, the Calgary Stampeders, 35-14 in the Western semi-final.
Head To Heads
Over the course of the regular season the teams met each other on three occasions, with Saskatchewan winning two of the three encounters.
Home-turf proved decisive in each game, with the Roughriders winning 19-17 in the Labour Day Classic in Week 12, the Blue Bombers avenging that loss with a comprehensive 35-10 win in the Banjo Bowl in Week 13, before Saskatchewan made the most of home-field advantage again to win 21-6 in Week 17.
Saskatchewan Roughriders vs Winnipeg Blue Bombers Betting Lines & Prediction
Looking at Roughriders vs Blue Bombers betting predictions going into this game, it’s worth remembering that the Blue Bombers knocked the Roughriders out of the post-season last season, so there’s a little extra motivation for Saskatchewan in looking to make amends for that loss here.
The Roughriders hopes rest largely with quarterback Cody Fajardo, who led the CFL in passing yards with 4302, rushed for 611 yards (7th in the league) and also had 10 rushing touchdowns (4th in the league).
The problem is that Fajardo has had an injury, although he insists he will play on Sunday. That has to be a concern and so we’re going to take the Blue Bombers as our CFL betting tips on the Point Spread.
