Roughriders vs. Redblacks Prediction

  • When: Friday, September 22nd 2023 at 7:00 PM ET
  • Where: TD Place in Ottawa, Ontario
  • Opening Spread: Roughriders -2 / Current Spread: Roughriders -2
  • Opening Total: 44 Points / Current Total: 45 Points

The Saskatchewan Roughriders (6-7 / 6-6-1 ATS) are 0-2 ATS as a favorite this season. The Roughriders defeated the Ottawa Redblacks (3-10 / 5-8 ATS) back in Week 9 by two points (26-24) as an underdog.

Saskatchewan are scoring 21.2 PPG (8th) and allowing 29.9 PPG (9th). They have a weak running game (83.4 RYPG – 8th), but the Riders offense averages 267.6 PYPG (4th). The Redblacks allow 325.8 PYPG (9th), which means the Roughriders should be able to move the football through the air.

The Redblacks score 24.0 PPG (4th) and allow 27.0 PPG (8th). Ottawa averages 131.3 RYPG (3rd) and will look to establish the run against the Roughriders defense (121.8 RYPG – 6th). The Redblacks have scored 20+ points and allowed 25+ points in six consecutive games. I’m betting the over.

Best Bet: Over 45 Points (-110)

The BC Lions (9-4 / 7-5-1 ATS) take on the Edmonton Elks (4-10 / 6-7-1 ATS) in Week 16. The Lions had a huge comeback last week. Down 37-18 after three quarters, the Lions outscore the Redblacks 23-0 in the fourth quarter. The Lions scored 20 points in the final 2:23 to pull off the incredible comeback.

CFL Week 16 Predictions – Touchdown Scorers

CFL touchdown scorer props have been released. I expect lots of scoring in this week’s opener between the Roughriders vs. Redblacks. I’m backing Shawn Bane Jr. to score an anytime touchdown. He’s coming off one of his best performances of the season, as he hauled in two touchdowns last week.

Bane Jr. only has four touchdowns this season, but one of them came against Ottawa. These two teams have played once this season. Bane Jr. had six receptions for 88 yards and 1 TD in that game.

Best Bet: Shawn Bane Jr. to Score a TD (+185)
