Saskatchewan vs Montreal
CFL, Round 3
The final game of this round and IMO the least interesting. This really should be one way traffic.
Saskatchewan Roughriders are one quite solid offensive side especially when play here at home. But, this is not much bet about them. This is pretty much bet against Montreal Alouettes. The visiting team is the worst team in CFL, to be more clear, they are by far the worst side in this league.
Yes, this double digits handicap seems as risky bet but believe me, it is payable when Montreal is in question, especially on the road. IMO very soon we will see such handicaps when they are at home, on the road even much bigger. Cause bookies already figured how bad this team is. Only round ago, Montreal was just 2 pts underdog at home, now they are 10 pts underdog on the road. BTW, the mentioned previous game Montreal lost with huge 10:56 from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. In the opening round Montreal lost away from not much impressive BC Lions. But Luons still easily covered against Montreal with final 22:10.
So, start of the new season for Montreal pretty much looks alike on previous one. Back then Montreal was by far worst with overall record of 3-15.
Counting end of last season and these first two games now, Montreal Alouettes are in 13 games long losing streak. Furthermore, they didn't cover handicap not even once in those 13 games.
