The Lions are coming in with an offense that can definitely move the ball around. The downside is the rushing attack cannot kill off the clock and that could be an issue against some teams, but the Blue Bombers are a team that is equally good at moving the ball, but not clock killing. Look for this game to be a great offensive game with little defense, but it is one the Lions come out on top in with the home field advantage. Final Score Prediction, BC Lions win and cover ATS 49-42.
