The Super Bowl is in February and the BCS title game is in January, but you can satisfy your championship football cravings this Sunday with the Grey Cup.

The CFL championship game will see the Saskatchewan Roughriders play the Montreal Alouettes in Calgary this Sunday. The Als are 9.5-point favorites with a Total of 55.5.

It’s easy to see why Montreal is favored too, given its 8-1 SU 7-2 ATS in its last nine overall and 9-3 ATS in its last 12 November games.

However, Saskatchewan is 15-5 ATS in its last 20 when an underdog of more than eight points and has covered its last nine straight games in that situation.

The ‘Riders have taken 10 Unders, two Overs, and a Push in their last 13 games with a posted Total in the month of November.
