Point Spread: 
Edmonton -3.5
Total: 
54

The Eskimos have established themselves as the second-best team in the West Division at 5-2, but they remain a tough pick for bettors at 3-4 against the spread. They did manage to cover last week against Saskatchewan in a tight 26-19 victory as a 6.5-point home favorite. Mike Reilly had a sub-par night with 257 yards passing with one touchdown throw while completing just 48.1 percent of his 27 passing attempts. CJ Gable gained 81 yards on the ground on 14 carries.

Edmonton at BC Prediction 08/09/2018

BC only added another 54 yards on the ground; running the ball just 14 times. I think the Lions will be on the losing end of this West Division clash as well, but I still like their chances to cover with the spread.
