97th GREY CUP CFL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
Today’s Game: Montreal (16-3) vs Saskatchewan (11-7-1) 6:30 ET 3:30 PT
Line: Montreal – 9 ½ Total: 55 ½
This game features “Team Juggernaut” the CFL's answer to the New York Yankees, if not in spending habits certainly with results on the field, and “Team Destiny” which was picked no better than third by most pundits and therefore most likely out of the playoffs instead wins the West Division and finds itself in the Grey Cup.
These games have had a habit over the years of coming down to the last few plays of the game so look for a last second FG or a hail mary attempt to be the difference.
In the end one has to go with experience over emotion in these kind of games. Montreal just has too much experience at the skill positions for Saskatchewan to deal with. The game should be a classic as usual with the Als silencing the somewhat partisan crowd in the end.
Weather will not be an issue in this game, although winds of up to 20km/hr may mess with the kicking game
