Elks VS Roughriders Best Bets
Moneyline/Point Spread Pick: Saskatchewan Roughriders (ML/-7.5)
After securing the win on the road in the first meeting between these two teams this season, look for a repeat of their previous clash as the Roughriders take the win in decisive fashion.
Having claimed a dominant victory in their routing of the Calgary Stampeders in their last matchup, the Roughriders have continued to improve as the season progresses. With their offence firing on all cylinders and their defence staying tough, the Elks are set to have a tough time getting on the scoreboard this evening.
While the Elks have shows glimpses of potential, they’ve failed to maintain this momentum throughout four quarters of play. Coming off of a one-sided beatdown delivered to them by the Ottawa RedBlacks in Week 4, the Elks proved why their staring down the barrel of an 0-5 start to the season.
Back the Roughriders to cruise back into the win column, running up the score against the Elks, and securing you with a boost to your bankroll when you bet on them to cover the point spread as favourites.
Over/Under Pick: Under 43.5 Points
If their first matchup is any indication of how tonight’s tilt may turn out, don’t expect to see either side enter the end zone frequently this evening.
While both sides have taken part in multiple high-scoring affairs this season, look for these two conference rivals to rely on their special teams in order to produce the majority of their offence in tonight’s game. With the Elks offence sputtering under command of starting quarterback Taylor Cornelius, expect to see the Roughrider pull ahead early and maintain their lead throughout the duration of the game.
Bank on tonight’s matchup to become dictated by both teams defence, keeping the score low, and winning you some dough as the Elks VS Roughriders results in Under 43.5 points.
Best Elks VS Roughriders Player Prop Bets
Taylor Cornelius Under 221.5 Passing Yards (-114)
As mentioned above, Taylor Cornelius has been unable to produce consistent offensive production in his starting appearances this season. Having failed to throw for more than 200 yards in a game in back-to-back outings this season, look for his total passing yards to fall Under 221.5 in tonight’s game.
Cornelius has performed poorly in his starts this season, failing to complete over 60% of his passes twice, while sporting a weak 2:2 touchdown to interception ratio. Fade the Elks pocket passer in tonight’s clash and watch as the Roughrider defence has a lockdown showing.
Jamal Morrow Over 66.5 Rushing Yards (-114)
Hot off the heels of a monster performance that saw him tally 133 rushing yards against a stingy Stampeders defence, hammer the Over on running back Jamal Morrow’s total rushing yards.
Morrow has ran for over 66.5 yards twice in his three appearances this season, with the lone outlier largely due to the fact his team was behind on the scoreboard and were forced into the passing game. Look for the former-Washington State Cougar to have a field day against a Elks defence that has allowed Over 115 rushing yards in all four games played this season.
