10* Saskatchewan (7:00 ET): In my analysis for last week's Hamilton @ Toronto game, I wrote the following "I think it speaks volumes that - off a less than stellar offensive showing in Week 1 - Hamilton would be favored on the road here against a Toronto team coming off an opening week bye. That probably speaks more to the current state of the Argos than anything else. They went 4-14 SU last season (worst record in the league) after winning the Grey Cup in 2017. They enter 2019 w/ plenty of uncertainty, particularly at the QB position. I'm laying the points here."
Well, that turned out to be a sharp move as Hamilton ANNIHILATED Toronto by a score of 64-14. As a result, the Argos opened as double digit dogs this week at Saskatchewan, who is also winless on the season (0-2). But the Roughriders can at least lay claim to being competitive in both of their defeats. In fact, they outgained both Hamilton and Ottawa and that was on the road. This is the season opener at Mosaic Stadium and comes on Canada Day, so you can expect a rabid crowd. I expect the Riders to reward their fans w/ a blowout victory here tonight.
Even though they've lost both games, there is plenty of reason to believe in this Saskatchewan team here, even w/ QB Zach Collaros on the six-week injured list. The defense held Hamilton to just 23 points in Week 1, a significant achievement considering what the Ti-Cats have done subsequently. Then last week, under the direction of QB Cody Fajardo, they still scored 41 points on Ottawa. Unlike the Redblacks, Toronto is probably not capable of trading scores here as they came into the season w/ major questions at the pivot (QB) and those certainly were no closer to being answered following Week 1. The Argonauts managed just 214 total yards vs. Hamilton and the defense was shredded for 600+ yards while giving up touchdowns on each of the first six drives. Lay the points 10* Saskatchewan
