The Grey Cup is here! There are a lot of great story lines in this championship clash, but none bigger or better than Andrew Harris facing his former team, which also happens to be his hometown team.

In the off-season the Bombers and Harris were at a standstill. It was reported that the Bombers offered Harris a light contract and the future hall of famer opted to sign with the Argos. Harris seems to have a chip on his shoulder and what better way to stick it to his ex-team then with a win in the final game of the season.

These two teams met once during the regular season. It was back in week 4 in Toronto, where the Bombers scored 23-22 win over the Argos after Kicker Boris Bede missed a game-tying convert in the dying seconds of the 4th quarter.

The Argos are 0-3-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last four games after a win. They are also 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games against the Blue Bombers. Winnipeg is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 playoff games.

The city of Regina will host the Grey Cup and is expecting snow mid-week. However, at game time Sunday, the early forecast calls for clear conditions with a high of minus 10 and a low of minus 15. The Prairies always promise to produce a wind factor. Could the kicking game be a factor on Sunday?

The Blue Bombers opened as 4.5-point favourites at Sports Interaction with a total of 48 points.

Toronto Argonauts

The Argos finished the regular season with an 11-7 record (10-8 ATS), first place in the East division.

Toronto jumped off to a 24-13 halftime lead and knocked off the Alouettes 34-27 to represent the East division. McLeod Bethel-Thompson passed for 299 yards (19-of-27) and two touchdowns in the win. He led all CFL quarterbacks during the regular season, passing for 4731 yards.

The key to the Argos success at the Grey Cup, will be Running back Andrew Harris. Harris spent five years as the face of the Blue Bombers franchise, but during this year’s off-season, he jumped ship to join the Argos.

Harris’ year was injury filled as the veteran only played in eight games during the regular season. One of those games were against the Blue Bombers, where he rushed for 111 yards on 22 carries. The 35-year-old has hinted that this could be his last CFL game, and if it is, what a way to go out then with a victory against his hometown team.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers

The Bombers finished the regular season with a 15-3 record (11-7 ATS), first place in the West division.

Winnipeg pulled out a 28-20 win over the BC Lions to punch their ticket to their third straight Grey Cup. But the big story of the game was the health of reigning MOP Zach Collaros. The star pivot suffered an injury to his right ankle in the final minutes of the West Final and couldn’t play. Collaros missed practice earlier in the week but told the media that he will be playing in the championship final and that it’s “not even a question.”

The Bombers offensive line will be the key ingredient if the team will win their third straight championship. Not only will they have to protect their franchise quarterback, but they have to open up holes for Running back Brady Oliveria. In the West Final, Oliveria he carried the ball 20 times for 130 yards.

Rookie Receiver Dalton Schoen finished his first CFL season the league leader in receiving yards with 1441 yards. He was quiet last week, hauling in three catches for 36 yards and a touchdown.
