Roughriders Look for 1st Win in Mosaic Stadium

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Saskatchewan Roughriders battle on Saturday when they meet at Mosaic Stadium. The Roughriders look for their first win at brand-spanking new Mosaic Stadium. The teams cap-off CFL Week 3 action on ESPN2 in the United States. Gametime is set for 10 pm EST.

Oddsmakers opened the Roughriders up as 2-point favorites against the spread. That has now dropped to the Rriders being only 1-point favorites now. The total opened at 53 and has inched down to 52.5.

The Roughriders were a 43-40 loser in their most recent outing at home against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. They failed to cover the -1.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score (83) made winners of OVER bettors.

Saskatchewan has lost its first two games by a combined total of four points. This includes a heart-breaking 43-40 overtime game to Winnipeg Blue last week at the new Mosaic Stadium home opener. Justin Medlock kicked the game winning field goal in the second overtime to seal the deal for Saskatchewan’s rivals.

Kevin Glenn led the offense. He completed 36 of 49 passes for 377 yards with four touchdowns. Glenn also had two interceptions. He connected with four different receivers for majors, including Nic Demski, who had a team-high 82 receiving yards.

TiCats are Looking to Shore up Defense and O-Line

Hamilton lost its last outing, a 32-15 loss against the Toronto Argonauts on June 25. The Tiger-Cats failed to cover in that game as a -3.5-point favorite, while the 47 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

The Ticats are coming off of a bye week. They are anxious to redeem themselves after falling 32-15 to the Toronto Argonauts in Week 1. Hamilton’s only touchdown was scored on special teams. Will Hill blocked a Toronto field goal attempt. It was taken back to for a TD by Richard Leonard for an 84-yard major.

The Black and Gold’s defence gave up 506 yards in the air to Ricky Ray and company. It was a career-high for the 37-year-old veteran. Zach Collaros was sacked six times in the loss. The Tabbies will start running back Ross Scheuerman in Week 3. Scheuerman rushed for 79 yards on 16 carries and added another 40 yards on five catches in his one and only start last season against the Montreal Alouettes back in September.
