This game will put what I believe are two of the top three teams in the CFL against each other. The Lions dominated the Blue Bombers at home last week, and if they can do the same in Toronto, they will be the best team in the CFL at this point in the season.
In their last game against the Elks, the Argonauts defeated them 43-31. A.J. Ouellette led his team on the ground, running for three touchdowns on 18 carries and averaging 4.7 yards per carry en route to an average of 4.7 yards per run average. Dejon Brissett led in receiving yards with four receptions totalling 63 and an average catch distance of 15.8 for this contest; Chad Kelly completed 13/23 passes totalling 264 yards with one touchdown throw and two interceptions!
Regarding their scoring, the Argonauts currently lead the league with 37.5 points per game. They are currently sitting first overall in scoring average with 235.0 yards per contest – good enough for seventh overall! In terms of ground play, they average 152.0 yards per contest with an overall rushed yardage total of 304; their 387.0 average yards per contest make them second among all CFL teams.
The Toronto Argonauts have given up 118 yards on the ground (59.0 per game) this season, in addition to 1 touchdown rushing. Furthermore, they are giving up 22.5 points per contest which ranks them third overall in the CFL and 45 total points overall with four touchdown passes and 263.5 average yardage per contest, putting them eighth overall in league competition.
In their last game against the Blue Bombers, the Lions recorded a 30-6 win, with Vernon Adams throwing for 237 yards with two touchdown passes while not throwing an interception. Taquan Mizzell led in rushing, running for 50 yards on ten attempts; that averages out to an average of 5.0 yards per tote run! Alexander Hollins led in receiving yardage with eight receptions totalling 83 yards at an average of 10.4 per catch!
The BC Lions average 25.7 points per game for reaching the endzone, ranking third amongst league teams with 115.3 yards average in run play per game and 1,150 total yards this season. They’ve recorded five touchdown passes and two rushing scores so far!
Regarding passing yards, the Lions rank first in the CFL with 402. They allow an average of 209.3 yards per game this campaign and rank as first for team defense with an average 7.0 PPG allowed per outing, including an average of 53.8 yards per run and 75.3 rushing yards per game on average throughout this season. Furthermore, their three games this year have yielded 134.0 yards per contest through passing means while also yielding a 57.1% completion percentage, with over 226 running yards being surrendered throughout these outings alone!
Can the Lions repeat their performance from last week? I think they will, the Argos have some defensive issues, and I am leaning towards a Lions win, and I think the one-point spread gives this game great value; take the Lions and give the point.
