Roughriders and BC Lions Kick Off Home and Home

BC Lions

BC Lions Looking for 5th Win

The fans at BC Place will see the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the British Columbia Lions on Saturday night. Kickoff is set for 7 pm EST. The first meeting of 2017 between the Riders and the BC Lions is also the first of back to back games between the two teams. This could be a significant early-season turning point.

Oddsmakers have the BC Lions as a 7-point favorite. The total is at 55.5.

British Columbia was a 37-26 loser in its last match on the road against the Edmonton Eskimos. They failed to cover the +2.5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 63 sent OVER bettors to the payout window. BC battled back from an early 14-point deficit. They tied the game up midway through the third quarter. Eskimos QB Mike Reilly rushed for two short touchdowns in the final quarter to pull away from the Lions.

BC quarterback Travis Lulay completed 22-of-26 passes for 259 yards with two passing touchdows. He also had a rushing major, and two interceptions.  The 33-year-old veteran will get his third straight start on Saturday. Lulay’s offense will get a boost as Chris Williams is set to make his season debut for the Lions. BC’s prized off-season acquisition has been recovering from a knee injury. Williams finished 2016 with 1,246 receiving yards despite being sidelined for the REDBLACKS’ final four games

Riders are Trying to Gain Momentum

The Roughriders are coming off of a big win. They got past the Toronto Argonauts 38-27 last week. Saskatchewan trailed by four heading into the fourth quarter. They outscored the Argos 18-3 to solidify the victory.

The Riders’ offence proved to be too much for Toronto. Kevin Glenn put on a show in front of the home crowd. He completed 24 of 37 passes for 340 yards and four touchdowns. Duron Carter was on the receiving end of two of those tosses.  He led all receivers with 131 yards on nine catches. Bakari Grant also had an great day. He racked up 115 yards on just five catches. The Riders’ ground game was just as solid. Cameron Marshall rushed for 110 yards.
