Edmonton started the season red-hot with seven-straight victories before going stone cold in a six-game losing streak. The Eskimos regained that winning formula just in time to pull off a SU six-game winning streak that includes a big 39-32 victory against Winnipeg last Sunday as three-point road favorites. They have gone 5-1 ATS in this latest tear with the total going OVER in four of the six games.
Credit the play of Mike Reilly at quarterback and a pair of receivers in Brandon Zylstra and Adarius Bowman for last week’s win. Reilly led the CFL in passing yards (5,830) and tied for the most passing touchdowns (30) in the regular season. He added 334 yards and three more scoring strikes to that total against the Blue Bombers. His top two receivers combined for 11 catches for 227 yards and all three passing touchdowns.
