I haven't even looked at the game yet...but is there any question that these are the two best team names in professional sports?  I'll give the Raiders a distant third.

Tough crowd.  No thoughts on the name game?

On to the game itself.  This will be the fourth time since 2010 that Winnipeg comes into a road game off a home loss/ats cover.  In the previous three, they were 3-0 ATS and 2-1 SU.  Interestingly, the last time they failed to cover in this spot was against Sasky as a 6 point dog in 2006. (Betweem 2009-2007 they Winnipeg was never a home dog)

I hate clicking submit inadvertently!

At any rate, inspite of the aforementioned trend, I think Sasky is the play today.  Last week was the "they're due" game, where the public got hammered.  Today is the "fool me once" game where folks will bail on the idea of trying Sasky as a favorite again.  And they'll cover.  Probably.  There's currently high juice on the 6.5.  Let's see if the number gets pushed to 7, or if the juice starts retreating.

Congrats to those who had the over.  For next week, Winnipeg becomes almost an automatic play on for me, and Saskatchewan a play against.
