Saskatchewan Roughriders at BC Lions Preview & Picks

Saskatchewan are tipped to cover as a betting underdog in this one.

The Roughriders are in hot form, and with the offense firing on all cylinders they can at the very least push BC to the limit.

  • Saskatchewan Roughriders are 4-0-0 ATS this season
  • Saskatchewan Roughriders are 3-0-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings with BC Lions
  • The Over has cashed in all 4 of Saskatchewan’s games this season
  • The Over has hit in the last 2 meetings between the two teams

Head To Head

  • The series is tied 19-19 since 2010
  • BC Lions won 33-26 when the two teams last met in September 2023

Saskatchewan Roughriders Form

Saskatchewan head to British Columbia having compiled a perfect record through the first five weeks.

The Roughriders won just six games all last season, but heading into this Week 6 matchup they are only two wins away from equalling that thanks to a 4-0 start.

They opened up the season with back-to-back road games, but they overcame that early challenge with a 29-21 win in Edmonton and a 33-30 victory at Hamilton.

Saskatchewan then marked their home opener with a 36-20 win over Hamilton that sent them into the bye week with a 3-0 record.

The Roughriders picked up from where they left off when they returned to action last week, beating Toronto 30-23 at home.

BC Lions Form

BC have rebounded from a losing start to the season with four consecutive wins to improve to 4-1.

The Lions kicked off the campaign on the road and suffered a 35-27 defeat at the hands of the Argonauts in Toronto.

They rebounded a week later though, beating Calgary 26-17 in their home opener, and they then built on that with a 26-24 victory in Winnipeg.

BC returned home for their fourth outing of the season and kept the wins coming with a 24-21 victory over Edmonton.

The Lions then made it to 4-1 last weekend as they went out on the road and beat Hamilton 44-28.

Verdict

BC are on a roll after a slow start, but we are not sold on them winning by more than a touchdown.

Unbeaten Saskatchewan are brimming with confidence and have a healthy recent knack for covering against the Lions, so give us the 4-0 Roughriders and the free points.
