Edmonton vs Ottawa: Game Preview

Edmonton enters this game with a 0-3 record, following a high scoring 43-31 loss to the Toronto Argonauts. In contrast, Ottawa, with a 0-2 record, is coming off a bye week and is well-rested after a 26-15 loss at home to Calgary. Both teams will be unveiling new quarterbacks, hoping to inject some energy into their respective offenses.

The Elks’ offense will be spearheaded by Jarret Doege, who is slated to make his first start of the season. Doege impressed in relief of Taylor Cornelius last game, completing 82% of his passes for 163 yards and two touchdowns. Doege will be seeking to capitalize on the talents of receivers Steven Dunbar Jr. and Vincent Forbes-Mombleau, who have already demonstrated their potential this season.

The Elks’ defense, despite conceding 43 points in their last outing, has been solid this season, having allowed just 39 points in their first two games. A critical component of their defense, Loucheiz Purifoy, is expected to play a crucial role, with his pair of interceptions in the previous game underscoring his ability.

For the REDBLACKS, Tyrie Adams will take the helm as the quarterback in the absence of Jeremiah Masoli. Adams completed nine of 17 passes for 129 yards against the Stampeders and will be relying on star receiver Jaelon Acklin to provide a solid offensive threat.

On the defensive side, Ottawa will rely on the prowess of Bryce Carter, Lorenzo Mauldin, and Kene Onyeka to unsettle the Elks’ offense. Mauldin, with two sacks under his belt, will be crucial in exerting pressure on Doege in the pocket.

CFL Prediction & Picks

Given the performance trends of both teams, this could be a tight contest. However, the Elks might have a slight edge, owing to Doege’s impressive performance against the Argonauts. The betting advice would be to back the Elks at +2. The offensive struggles of both teams suggest that the total might stay under 42.

Predicted Final Score: Edmonton 21, Ottawa 17.
