MIT Simulator Thursday CFL Premium Pick: Edmonton Eskimos -7 - This is a revenge spot for Saskatchewan this week after they suffered a home loss to Edmonton late last season. As a result, many will be looking at the Roughriders in this match-up. That is part of the reason this line has gone from a -9 to a -7 on the Eskimos. However, the problem with that analogy is that Edmonton did lose at home to Saskatchewan last season. The Eskimos gave up 54 points on their home turf in that game and certainly that ugly home loss is a result they have not forgotten. Prior to that loss in the most recent meeting, Edmonton had won 6 of the last 7 meetings SU. Considering all of the above, a home win can be expected, and the drop to a -7 makes laying the points that much more attractive. Saskatchewan is a long-term 26-50 SU and 30-46 ATS in August games. The average margin of victory in the last 4 meetings between these teams is 12.3 points and only 1 of the 4 was decided by less than 8 points. Considering all of the above factors, it is easy to see why MIT Simulator is forecasting a home blowout in this one.
