Good weather and action for CFL's Riders in Grey Cup

Nov 21, 2013 |
The 101st Grey Cup kicks off on Sunday with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats taking on the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Regina, Saskatchewan.

Some books have the home town Roughriders favored by a converted touchdown after early sharp action on Saskatchewan.

"About 75 percent of the handle is on Saskatchewan right now," Greg Sindall of Sportsinteraction.com told Covers. "The money has come in more balanced since we moved the line."

"Having home field advantage is obviously a huge advantage and I think we will be seeing steady action on the home side as Sunday approaches," Sindall says.

Home field for the Riders is Mosaic Stadium, which is infamous for frigid November games with blisteringly cold prairie winds. But the weather at gametime will be relatively favorable. The high temperature for Sunday in Regina will be around 32 degrees, which is will be balmy considering temperatures were are low as -13 degrees earlier in the week.

"Sunday should be higher temps," Aron Black of Bet365.com told Covers. "But possible snow and or wind could force moves, mainly on the total (53.5). As for dealing with the weather, the edge would have to go with the Riders."

Bet365.com have the Riders at -7 and the action has been with Saskatchewan and the points at about a three-to-one clip.
