CFL Handicapper Ron Raymond provides a preview and prediction on the game between the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Hamilton Tiger cats, Thursday, 6/13/19.
Saskatchewan won both meetings last season, including a 31-20 victory as a +10.5 Road Underdog in Week 6 and then 18-13 at Mosaic Stadium on July 5th, 2018. The Roughriders come into the season with a new head coach, as Craig Dickenson takes over the reigns from departed head coach Chris Jones who took a job with the Cleveland Browns of the NFL. The Roughriders finished the 2018 campaign with a 12-6 SU record for 24 points and finished second in the western division.
Hamilton on the other hand, saw their head coach leave earlier this season for the XFL, as June Jones took a job with the Houston expansion team. Orlando Steinhauer will be the bench boss for the Tiger cats to start the 2019 season and will have former Oregon Ducks QB Jeremiah Masoli as their starting QB.
As for Saskatchewan, they will go with Zach Collaros as their starting pivot with Cody Fajardo of Nevada, as their back up.
In order for the Roughriders to improve on their 12-6 record from last season, they will have to find a running game and that’s why they went out and acquired free agent William Powell in the off season who played for the Ottawa REDBLACKS during the 2018 season.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? (CFL, CFB and NFL)
C.O.C. = (Chances of Covering) – The ‘C.O.C.’ percentage is based on a teams win/lost record from a ‘Point Spread’ perspective and not their ‘straight up’ (SU) record, using the teams short and long-term win/lost record. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF COVERING’ percentage for that team in their next game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on betting that team.
C.O.G.O. = (Chances Game Going OVER) – The ‘C.O.G.O.’ percentage is based on both teams OVER/UNDER record, using both teams short and long-term OVER/UNDER records. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF COVERING’ percentage for that game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on the OVER in that game.
*Note: If there’s a 60% chance of the game going OVER, that means, there’s a 40% chance of the game going UNDER.
MSV = (Market Spread Value) – The MSV is our researched and calculated line compared to the bookmaker’s line. When calculating the MSV, we look for the margin of error between the bookmaker’s line, the final result of a game and then produce the value of what the line should be in the next game for both teams.
VI = (Value Index) – The Value Index is the current psychology of the betting public, based on a teams 3-game cycle.
BULLISH = Team is either (3-0) in their last 3 games.
NEUTRAL = Team is either (1-2 or 2-3) in their last 3 games.
BEARISH = Team is either (0-3) in their last 3 games.
L.O.A. = (Law of Average) – The “Law of Average” edge is based on the 50/50 theory. Play on a team that lost against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game, vs. a team that won against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game.
