Tiger-Cats Host Roughriders in Thursday CFL Action

Hamitlton Tiger-Cats Football

Tiger-Cats Look for Revenge in Week 6 Action

The Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats will battle on Thursday night. Tim Horton’s stadium is the venue. The game will kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. ET. The game can be seen on TSN, RDS in Canada and ESPN+ in the United States.

Oddsmakers have listed the TiCats as 11-point favorites. The total is sitting at 51.

The Roughriders won 18-13 win in Regina against the Tiger-Cats only two weeks ago. Revenge will be on the minds of Hamilton tonight. This is a game where they are heavily favored at home.

TiCat quarterback Jeremiah Masoli is chasing history. The Ole Miss product could set the CFL’s all-time record for most consecutive 300-plus passing-yard games. It will take a strong performance against Saskatchewan on Thursday.

The record currently is nine. It is shared by Masoli, Kent Austin (1991, Saskatchewan) and Sam Etcheverry (1956, Montreal).

Roughriders Need Win to Keep Pace in the West

If the Riders have their way, Masoli won’t earn the record to himself. The Ticat pivot is one of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the league today, and still managed 333 passing yards in his team’s 13-point effort in Regina.

Brandon Bridge was chosen as the starting quarterback early in the week. It remains to be seen how much of a leash he will have. He was replaced before the end of the first quarter. He returned to finish the ballgame when these teams met two weeks ago.

Saskatchewan will make just one change to its Week 4 roster. They will swap out one D-lineman Makana Henry for another in safety Tristan Doughlin.

Tiger-Cats are Looking for the End Zone More Often

As much as Masoli’s shot at history would be a nice, wins are what matter.

Even with his 333 yards in Regina last time out, he was not good enough. One interception and zero touchdowns is not up to the standard of any starting quarterback in CFL. Especially one of Masoli’s quality.

Fans will not know what Masoli’s reciever corps will look like until game time. Head coach June Jones intends to make a decision on Luke Tasker. The Offensive guru will make a decision after pregame warmups.

Rookie Rashad Lawrence will likely slide into Tasker’s spot at slotback.

Richard Leonard will be back in the lineup tonight for the Tiger-Cats. The Florida International product came into 2018 with a chip on his shoulder. He believed to be a snub in Rookie of the Year voting. Leonard began the year very well before a Week-2 injury against Edmonton.

2018 first-round draft pick Darius Ciraco will make his fifth-straight start. The former Calgary Dino has been an immediate impact player early in his rookie campaign.

CFL Week 6 This and That

8% of drives in games involving Saskatchewan end in touchdowns. Games that have been played so far this year that don’t involve the Riders have a 18% touchdown rate. The Riders are a defensive team and wins will likely come because of their defense.

Three-straight games of triple-digit receiving yards for Hamilton’s Brandon Banks. He has flourished under June Jones’s high powered offense.

The CFL has never had two quarterbacks eclipse the 6,000-yard mark in the same season. Masoli and Edmonton’s Mike Reilly are on pace to be in the vicinity come the end of the season.

Saskatchewan’s defense has been downright monstrous at times to begin the season. Hamilton’s offense has had moments of being unstoppable.
