Roughriders vs. Alouettes Prediction:
The Roughriders are on a flying start of 2-0 this season. They are in fine form and dominating their opponents.
On the other hand, the Als are heart-broken with two close defeats. Moreover, they lost last year’s leading rusher Stanback due to a fractured ankle.
Montreal Alouettes could be dangerous like wounded animals in front of the home crowd. It could be a trap game for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. It would be better if you stay away from this one from betting.
Our pick is the Als to show a great heart to secure their first win.
