Lions VS Roughriders Best Bets

Moneyline Pick/Point Spread Pick: BC Lions (ML/-9.5)

After dismantling the Calgary Stampeders 37-9 in last weeks matchup, look for the BC Lions to continue their dominant ways over the CFL as they defeat the Roughriders in a hostile environment, covering the 9.5-point spread in the process.

The Lions have been exceptional all season long, having only recorded losses against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Toronto Argonauts. Sporting a consistent offence as well as one of the best defensive units in football, the Lions are primed to score a one-sided beatdown over the Roughriders this evening.

With the Riders having lost four of their last five games played, including a 19-9 loss suffered at the hands of the Lions, look for tonight’s tilt to finish with a lopsided final score. Hammer the Lions on the point spread as they cruise to victory against an inferior Roughriders team.

Over/Under Pick: Over 44.5 Points

While their first matchup didn’t feature much in the way of scoring drives, look for this evening’s clash to carry out differently as the Lions and Roughriders combine for Over 44.5 points.

With the Lions offence having scored 22-points or more throughout the 2023 season, don’t expect to see them slow down when facing a defence that has allowed an average of 32.6 points against over their last three contests.

Look for BC to do the “Lions share” in hitting the Over this evening as they run up the score against a subpar defence. Hammer the Over on the Lions VS Roughrider and watch as your bankroll rises alongside the scoreboard.

Best Lions VS Roughriders Player Prop Bets

Vernon Adams Jr. Over 270.5 Passing Yards (-114)

Putting on a show in his return to action in Week 10, look for BC Lions quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. to have another spectacular showing as he passes for Over 270.5 yards against the Roughriders.

After missing back-to-back matchups after suffering an injury early on into their last game against the Roughriders, Adams Jr. didn’t skip a beat in his first game back. Set to continue putting up MOP-caliber numbers, back Adams Jr. to pass for Over 270.5 yards this evening, and score yourself an easy win with this player prop bet.

Jamal Morrow Under 48.5 Rushing Yards (-114)

Continuing to struggle picking up yardage this season, don’t expect to see Roughriders running back Jamal Morrow to have a standout showing against the Lions.

Having failed to record Over 48.5 rushing yards in four of his last five games, this trend is sure to continue in tonight’s tilt.

After having a stellar outing against the Ottawa Redblacks last week as he racked up 81 yards on the ground, look for him to come back to reality as he struggles to run the rock against the second-best run stopping defence.

Bet the Under on Morrow’s rushing yard total tonight and win big as he struggles to move the ball against the Lions.
