Statistically speaking, the Lions and Bombers were the two top teams in the CFL. The Blue Bombers finished with the top record in the league while the Lions were second.

Stats aside, we will witness the two best Quarterbacks in the CFL going head-to-head with the only thing that matters – a chance to challenge in next week’s Grey Cup.

These two teams met three times during the regular season with the Blue Bombers taking two of the three games.

The Lions have struggled in Winnipeg over the last two years going 0-4 against the spread in the last four games. Winnipeg has held a significant edge over BC going 21-7-1 against the spread in their last 29 games overall.

The early forecast in Winnipeg for Sunday afternoon’s game calls for sunny and clear conditions with an expected high of minus 8 and a low of minus 14. Welcome to football weather!

The Blue Bombers opened as 5-point favourites at Sports Interaction with a total of 49.5 points.

BC Lions

The Lions finished the regular season with a 12-6 record (11-7 ATS) and a solid 6-3 mark on the road this season.

The Leos knocked off the Calgary Stampeders 30-16 last weekend in the West Semi-Final. Quarterback Nathan Rourke played in his first full game since week 11. He went 22-for-30 for 321 yards and two touchdowns. Running back James Butler contributed with 95 yards along the ground. In his last full game against the Bombers (October 15) he had one of his best games of the season running for 104 yards on only 14 carries and also scored a touchdown. The Lions will need that sort of production on Sunday afternoon if they hope to score a victory. Butler had 1060 rushing yards this season, second only to Stampeders Running back Ka’Deem Carey.

The big story for the Lions offence last weekend was the standout play of Receiver Keon Hatcher, who had his best game of the season since June 30. Hatcher caught 8 balls for 162 yards and scored a touchdown. Hatcher alongside receivers Bryan Burnham, Alexander Hollins and Dominique Rhymes can be game changers in this Lions offence.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers

The Bombers finished the regular season with a 15-3 record (11-7 ATS) and an impressive 8-1 mark at home this season.

Winnipeg has locked up first place in the West Division early in October and should be well rested for this contest. Quarterback Zach Collaros finished the season with 4183 passing yards and 37 touchdowns. He is the favourite to win the league’s MOP award.

The Bombers offensive line will be the key ingredient if the team will make a third straight appearance at the Championship game. Stanley Bryant was once again nominated for the top lineman award. He anchors a veteran group that has protected Collaros well this season and opened up holes for Brady Oliveria, who was third in the CFL, with 1001 yards.

Rookie Receiver Dalton Schoen finished his first CFL season the league leader in receiving yards with 1441 yards. He also was tied for tops in the league with 16 touchdowns. Schoen is a shoo-in for the league’s top freshman at season’s end.
