The Roughriders have a decent offense and a blooming quarterback in Fajardo. Look for him to be able to guide the Roughriders again in this game here, but what will really be interesting for the Roughriders is how well the defense holds up against the pass anemic offense of the Alouettes here. The lack of a passing game will be an issue for the Alouettes in this game here and prevent them from playing strong. Final Score Prediction, Saskatchewan Roughriders win and cover ATS 26-17.
