Point Spread: 
Toronto -1.5

The Toronto Argonauts host the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the East Division Finals game at BMO Field on Sunday November 14, 2017 at 1 PM EST. The odds maker has listed the Argos as a small -1.5 point favorite on the spread line with the total line listed at 53 points.

Saskatchewan had to take the crossover route in the playoffs after finishing fourth in the West Division at 10-8 both straight-up and against the spread. It is making the most of the opportunity to possibly take the easier path to the Grey Cup Championship starting with last Sunday’s 31-20 road victory against Ottawa as a 2.5-point underdog. The Roughriders have gone 4-2 both SU and ATS in their last six games with the total staying UNDER or ending as a PUSH in eight of their last nine games.

Behind an offense that averaged 28.3 points per game in the regular season, Saskatchewan quarterback Kevin Glenn went a productive 18-for-28 last Sunday for 252 passing yards and a score. The big story in that game was the play of Marcus Thigpen with 169 rushing yards and a score on just 15 carries.

Toronto won the East Division at 9-9 SU with an 8-10 record ATS. It needed a 40-13 road victory against British Columbia as a two-point favorite in Week 20 to lock things up as part of a 5-2 run both SU and ATS in its final seven games. The total went OVER 52 points against BC and it has gone OVER or ended as a PUSH in the Argonauts last seven games.

Saskatchewan Rough Riders at Toronto Argonauts Playoff Prediction

With Ricky Ray playing at top form under center, Toronto’s offense averaged 32.9 points over its final seven games as opposed to a season scoring average of 26.8 points per game. Ray was second in the CFL in both passing yards (5,546) and passing touchdowns (28). His top target in the passing game was SJ Green with 1,462 receiving yards and 10 touchdown catches.

I am leaning towards Saskatchewan in this game given the West’s domination over the East all season long, but the ‘best bet’ pick is the OVER on the 53-point total line
