Even though Bet365 Sportsbook, as well as the majority of the CFL betting public are predicting that the Saskatchewan Roughriders will run away with this one, there’s no denying just how potent Hamilton’s offense has been this year and how much it has helped them, especially in recent games. In their victory against the Toronto Argonauts, Burris racked up an astounding 371 yards passing and a total of three touchdowns. The bit of bad news haunting the Ti-Cats budding offense in this Grey Cup is that they just happen to be going up against the very best defense in the CFL. The Roughriders kept their opponents to just over 21 points per game through the 2013 regular season. They also managed to keep their opponents to an average of just a hair more than 251 yards passing per game.

It’s been a little while since the Riders have seen a Grey Cup game. After back to back appearances in 2009 and 2010, they failed to even make it to the playoffs in 2011. Last year they made it to the post-season but only far enough to be eliminated in the semi-finals. This year has been a completely different story for Saskatchewan though as they rattled off eight wins in their first nine games before they ran out of steam. They have picked it up again in the playoffs though with two straight victories against the best the the CFL West has to offer. After taking town the BC Lions, Saskatchewan defeated their toughest rival, the Calgary Stampeders, by a whopping 22 points on the road. As stated earlier, the Riders defense will likely play a big role in this game, but their offense certainly will as well. Their stats slightly padded by their early season run, the Roughriders had the number two offense in the CFL for 2013.

The Stats

* Over the last ten games that these two teams have played against each other, Hamilton has just three victories.

* Their recent head to head record is also 7-3 against the spread in favor of the Riders

* When playing separately, they combine for an average of just over 54 points per game

* When playing each other, they average just 47 points

* The last 13 times that the Roughriders have played the Tiger-Cats in Saskatchewan, they’ve come away with the win 12 times.
