Sunday September 29th at 1:00pm EST has this week 14 matchup between the Saskatchewan Rough Riders vs the Montreal Alouettes in a battle of 2 teams in the middle of some downhill slides.

Last week the Riders lost a close game to the B.C Lions 24 – 22. The Rough Riders now sit in 3rd place in the West Division but they are tied with the Lions for 2nd and are only 2 points back of division leading Calgary but are currently on a 3 game losing streak. Montreal continues to slide. They lost to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 28 -26. They have also lost 3 in a row and now sit with a 4 – 8 record for 8 points and trail Hamilton by 4 points for second place in the East and are 8 points behind the Argos for 1st.

The Rough Riders won 25 – 13 the last time these two teams played each other but that was over a month ago. For the Riders this is a MUST win game. With the Edmonton Eskimos losing to the Argos yesterday, the Rough Riders can clinch a playoff berth with a win in this game.

Saskatchewan vs Montreal Betting Tips

The Riders can and will win this game. And by doing so will guarantee themselves a spot in the playoffs. Although they are currently in the middle of a downward slide, this team is still a strong team who earlier in the year pulled off some impressive wins during their 5 game win streak to begin the 2013 CFL Season.

Montreal is still a decent team. And in the much weaker East Division can still make the playoffs. But they won’t be clinching a spot anytime soon.

This game will turn out to be a good one. Montreal’s D will make life tough for Darian Durant and the rest of the Riders but the Riders will come out on top due to the urgency of the situation. Again with a win they are in and the Riders would love to get that over with as soon as possible. It will be decided by less than a touchdown but I still like the -3.5 spread going the Rough Riders way.

Although they will be without the services of the best running back in the CFL in Kory Sheets they are still a strong team. Last week was also the first time that Geroy Simon faced his former team the B.C Lions and with the 5 catches he made he is now in a tie for first place on the CFL’s All-Time Career Receptions list alongside Ben Cahoon with 1,017. So one catch in this weeks game and we witness history
