This will be the second game of two this season between these two teams. Three weeks ago the Eskimos hammered the Argos 26-0. It was a complete domination from the Eskimos allowing the Argos only 13 first downs and 187 total yards on offence.

CFL Odds and Betting

The Eskimos win against the Argos three weeks ago was their first against the spread win versus the Argos in the last five tries (1-4 ATS).

The Argos are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games when coming off a bye week. The Eskimos have struggled on the road this season going 1-3 straight up, and are 1-6 ATS in their last seven road games dating back to last season.

Of note, perhaps the over is the way to go. These two teams head to head in the last 14 games have gone 10-4 to the over. When the game is played in Toronto, the two teams are 5-2 to the over in the last seven meetings.

Edmonton Eskimos

“We have the best defence in the league in my opinion,” Head Coach Jason Maas told the media in Edmonton this week, and he might have a point. The Eskimos defence definitely ran the show in the team’s 16-12 win over the Redblacks last week. The secondary intercepted two passes in that game, and stopped the Redblacks in the red zone in the dying seconds of the game – where allowing a touchdown would have lost the game.

Trevor Harris still leads the CFL in passing with 2631 yards this season, but has had a hard time finding the end zone as of late. Harris has gone two games without a touchdown pass, and has only two touchdown passes in his last four games.

Running back CJ Gable (116 yards and two touchdowns) is coming off his best rushing night of the season since opening night where he marched for 154 yards in a win against the Alouettes.

Toronto Argonauts

The Argos are coming off a bye week after their first win of the season. If you missed it, the Boatman were down to the first place Blue Bombers 20-0 through the first half of the game, but stormed back to win it 28-27.

MacLeod Bethel-Thompson was a CFL top performer of the week, throwing for a season-high 37 competitions, 343 yards and three touchdowns. He was also the team’s leading rusher with 44 yards along the ground.

Earlier in the week, the team swapped Defensive lineman, sending Shawn Lemon to the BC Lions in exchange for Devon Coleman. No word yet if Coleman dresses for this game Friday night.
