CFL Odds: Riders Face Test in Defending Champion Lions

Betting on Saskatchewan Roughriders Football



The Saskatchewan Roughriders disappointed in 2011 but have looked nothing but impressive on the CFL odds ever since. After logging convincing victories over Hamilton and Edmonton, they’ll try their luck against the reigning champion B.C. Lions.

When the Week 3 bout kicks off in the prairies this Saturday, the Roughriders will look to prove that maybe they deserve a little more love on the Grey Cup futures. Sure they’ve already climbed to 11/2 odds of winning the CFL, but it pales in comparison’s to B.C.‘s 11/4.


Although just a season removed from an appearance in the championship, Saskatchewan’s rough finish last year cost them much of the respect they’d finally built up on the CFL moneyline. Can the impressive tandem of quarterback Darian Durant and running back Kory Sheets help them gain it back?


It won’t be easy against the Lions, the only other undefeated club through the first two weeks of the season. After topping the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in a rematch of the Grey Cup in Week 1, they notched a second over Hamilton in Week 2.


With Travis Lulay at the helm can they dispose of the Saskatchewan threat? At this point in the season, with such uncertainty on the CFL odds, it’s impossible to tell.
