Stephen Nover's Thursday Destroyer - 69% CFL!
Edmonton vs. British Columbia,
07/11/2019 22:00 EDT,
Score: 33 - 6
Total: -105/+55 Over
These teams met three weeks ago and Edmonton won, 39-23. I'm expecting another high-scoring game.
The Eskimos are coming off a bye. Edmonton quarterback Trevor Harris should carve up BC. I'm not sold on the Lions' defense after they held Toronto to 17 points last week when the Argos were on a short week. The Argos have the worst offense in the CFL averaging 12.7 points per game. The Lions gave up an average of 36 points a game during their first three games before meeting Toronto.
Harris has a number of effective skill position weapons, including wide receiver Bryan Burnham. He missed last week's game, but has been cleared to play today.
I expect Mike Reilly and BC to really be psyched for this rematch. The Lions' ground game has picked up since that loss. John White is coming off a 138-yard rushing game last week. The Eskimos are breaking in new people on defense from last season.
Note, too, the Over is 5-0-1 during the last six meetings between the two teams.
