The Saskatchewan Roughriders haven’t won the Grey Cup since 2007, but if the first two months of the season are any indication, they are looking like the team to beat.
Quarterback Darian Durant has thrown a CFL-leading 17 touchdown passes without a single interception while RB Kory Sheets leads the CFL in rushing with 919 yards on the season so far.
Durant and Sheets have led the Roughriders' offense to 33.4 points per game, which ranks best in the CFL. To go along with the league’s best offense, Saskatchewan has also allowed fewer points than any other team at 21.4 per game.
The 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS Roughriders are the current 9/5 favorite in CFL football betting odds for the Grey Cup game in November.
The Calgary Stampeders handed Saskatchewan its only loss of the season so far, topping the Roughriders 42-27 at home in Week 6. Running back Jon Cornish leads the CFL with eight rushing touchdowns and is second in rushing yards with 749.
He, along with three capable quarterbacks that have combined for 1,823 passing yards and 14 touchdowns, lead an offense that averages 32.3 points per game. Calgary is 5-2 SU and ATS, and is currently going off at 13/4 to win the Grey Cup.
Also in the running out west are the BC Lions (7/2), who won the Grey Cup two years ago and are 5-2 SU and 4-3 ATS so far this season. While the Lions have struggled to find their footing on offense so far this season, they are a perfect 4-0 SU at home and are second in the league in defensive scoring allowing 23.4 points per game.
The defending Grey Cup champion Toronto Argonauts are also currently listed at 7/2, and are already running away with the top spot in the East with a 5-2 SU and 4-3 ATS record.
Quarterback Ricky Ray is enjoying a sensational year, ranking second in the CFL in passing yards (1,768) and touchdowns (14) with no interceptions as the Argos average 32.8 points per game.
