When it comes to hot and cold teams, nobody can hold a candle to the Eskimos. After starting this season with seven SU victories in a row, they proceeded to lose their next six contests. Given up for dead at that point, Edmonton regained its form to close things out with a five-game winning streak. While the Eskimos were a tough bet over this wild ride at 8-10 ATS, they covered in four of those last five games.
