YTD  16-4  ( +21.6 units )

5u  0-0
4u  3-0
3u  1-0
2u  3-4
1u  9-0


SASKATCHEWAN -2.5 ( 5 units ) Game of the Year
I don't make too many large wagers over the course of the year so for  me to make a significant size bet  the situation has to be as close to perfect as possible and I'm extremely confident that this is the game.
Let's start with the first meeting between these teams which was back in Week 4 as we saw the Stampeders come back from a 17 point 4th quarter deficit to beat Saskatchewan in Overtime 41-38.
Since Week 4 the RoughRiders have dropped 4 straight and have not hosted a game at home since Week 5. Not to mention that Mosaic Stadium is probably one of the toughest places for a road team in all of Pro Football.
The Rough Riders are coming off their worst offensive performance of the season losing to the BC Lions 25-4 that saw Durant throw 3 picks and Sheets carry the ball 10 times for 28 yards. Saskatchewan couldn't of played any worse, so I expect a bounce back game with revenge as a motivating factor.
The word "PARITY" this year has been often repeated but not misrepresented. There have been 4 situations this season in which teams have score 10 points or less ( MONTREAL WEEK 1, EDMONTON  WEEK 2, WINNIPEG  WEEK 3 and CALGARY WEEK 6 )  IN ALL OF THESE TEAMS FOLLOWING GAMES EACH TEAM HAS COVERED THE SPREAD AND HAVE OUTSCORED THEIR OPPONENTS BY A COMBINED 57 POINTS. FINAL SCORE SASKATCHEWAN 34 CALGARY 21

HAM / MON OVER 59.5 ( 1 unit )

GOOD LUCK

You got a hook up for one of these in the Lower Mainland? I may be interested....

Best of luck Dimes.

I like the Rider's this weekend as well. 

You have to think that the motivation & pressure is there for the Rider's this weekend. Having dropped 4 in a row this is a HUGE game for them as the entire province of Saskatchewan is sickened with their recent performances. I myself have been in absolute dismay with how disgusting of football they have played over the past 2 weeks. I thought last weekend was a bounce back spot for them but I was horribly wrong. This weekend, I think they have a great chance for a win and I like how the line allows us to lay less than a field goal. The Rider's are amping up things in practice this week with some changes on the offensive line...Rookie Ben Heenan sat out practice yesterday along with fellow lineman Neufeld who is  a bit banged up. The Rider coach has made the changes he deems necessary to the line and he is confident that the movements he has made will benefit Durant's time in the pocket. I hope he is right. 

Good luck this weekend Dimes. The Rider's should be ready to roll on Thursday.

Actually my 05 Magnum I bought used came with it, as well as some fine looking 20's, most shops that do exhaust work can install flowmmaster, ya gotta shop around to find I good price though, it's worth it if you got a decent ride and plan on keeping it for lets say 5 years or more.

Bol 44-Dimes. I see Red Capper has posted a GOY as well, only his selection is on your opponent, Calgary at +3.

Tough game to watch. Felt helpless throughout .

Under these handicapping circumstances ,  I'd make this bet over and over again.
The problem is when you fall behind 14-0 with 85KM an hour winds the coaching staff takes over the game and Hufnagel clearly out coached Chamblin. 
Calgary pounded the ball with Cornish when the wind was to their disadvantage while Durant kept throwing on the run battling the gust. Glenn clearly the better QB and much better play calling by Dickenson to manage the field conditions.

DO WE BLAME IT ON THE WIND--Certainly Not  !!!!

Take it as a loss and move on to next week.

I was coming here to say essentially the same thing you just did 44-dimes.

This was more of a coaching battle than a football game and like you said, when a team is spotted 14 points in the 1st quarter there isn't much you can do.


We'll get it rolling soon here buddy

Overall, still a excellent record at 16-5 ATS.  Oddly, "games of the year" seem to be cursed by the gambling gods.
