I'm pulling for Ottawa. It's anybody's game but quarterbacking is their big advantage.

Matt Nichols is supposed to start for Winnipeg but I don't know how effective he'll be. Edmonton is the better team.

I'm pulling for Edmonton, because of Mike Reilly and his "never say die" playing style..... and then the WDF would be a battle of Alberta that could be the game of the year.

I think it is better for the league if the cross-over team does not end up in the Grey Cup, so this game or next, I would prefer Saskatchewan to lose.

SASK - OTT - I'm going with the RIDERS to W this one. The last 5 games TSN says have been decided by a total of 8 pts! Time left in game when decided was about last 41 seconds. Agree with Burris that William Powell could be a big factor in the OTT OFF.

ESKS-BOMBERS - I'm not buying Matt Nichols is healthy and that will affect them and we know the ESKs are on fire. Hard to not pick ESKS to W given how few times Nicholls has practice.

What a start to the game.

Sask scores and up 7.

Ott. scores and up 8 -7. Diontae Spencer on fire. Huge return on Kickoff and then first play on OFF he scores TD - Combined yards: 93 . Now he's the go to guy with #82 GE hurting big time and looks like he might be out.

Sask scores and up 14 -8.

Sask dropped sure INTS and if not, this game would be UGLY at the half.

Score at 1/2 is 21 -8

Time of poss for Riders like 18 to just under 12 min for RBs.

Riders better be careful. Sure INTS being dropped.

They need to calm down it seems.

28 to 14 is not a sure thing for the Riders.

The Riders are playing hard and seem to have an extra gear. Turnovers have been costly for Ottawa. Kevin Glenn is outplaying Trevor Harris and Marcus Thigpen is running wild with over 150 yards already.

Marcus Thigpen unstoppable. Over 160 yards rushing. Rider offensive line dominating.

Riders have been playing while RBs practicing and watching.

Even if Spencer caught that for a TD instead of dropping it, it'd have been too little too late.
