CFL Games Today Thursday, July 6:
- Edmonton Elks vs Saskatchewan Roughriders:
- Mosaic Stadium, 9:00 p.m. ET,
- TSN, CBS Sports Network (US),
- CFL Live Stream CFL+ (international)
- The game’s odds stand at +7.5 for Edmonton, with a Moneyline of +255 and O/U of 44.
Game Breakdown: Edmonton’s Elks, who are still hunting for their first win, will be led by quarterback Taylor Cornelius after Jarret Doege was intercepted three times against Ottawa last week. Unfortunately, Cornelius will be without top receiver Eugene Lewis due to injury, putting the pressure on Maurice Ffrench, Steven Dunbar Jr., Dillon Mitchell, and Kyran Moore. Running back Kevin Brown will need to step up his game to help bolster the league’s lowest-scoring offense.
On the other side, Saskatchewan’s defense, led by Noah Curtis, Jake Ceresna, Kony Ealy, A.C. Leonard, and J-Min Pelley, will need to contain Edmonton’s rush attack, which includes stand-out rusher Jamal Morrow. The secondary, led by Kai Gray and Nyles Morgan, will aim to limit Edmonton’s aerial assault as they did in their previous encounter.
Betting Information: Given the current state of both teams, a bet on Saskatchewan to win might be a safer choice. However, if Edmonton’s offense can step up, the +7.5 spread might be worth considering. The over/under is set at 44, which may lean more towards the under given Edmonton’s struggles to score this season.
CFL Prediction & Picks: Despite the ongoing challenges Edmonton faces, we expect a hard-fought match. However, given Saskatchewan’s robust defense and recent performance, we predict a Roughriders victory with a score of 24-13.
Remember to tune in for the game tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET on TSN in Canada, or catch the CFL live stream on CBS Sports in the U.S., or internationally via CFL+. Good luck to both teams as they take the field for what promises to be a compelling match-up.
