The Alouettes picked up their first win of the season last week, improving to 1-1 both SU and ATS with a 41-30 victory over the Blue Bombers. The Stampeders also sit at 1-1 both SU and ATS after two weeks, but they're coming off a 39-36 loss in Toronto as a road favorite. Calgary quarterback Drew Tate is out indefinitely with a shoulder injury suffered against the Argos.

Last 10 Meetings: Edmonton 4-6 SU, 6-4 ATS | OU 2-8
The Blue Bombers are now 0-2 both SU and ATS on the season after falling to the Alouettes in Week 2; they were also thumped 33-16 on the road against B.C. back in Week 1. The Eskimos sit at 1-1 SU and ATS, but they're coming off an embarrassing 17-1 road loss to the Roughriders in Week 2. Edmonton turned in a better effort in Week 1 when they beat the Argos 19-15 at home.

Both the Lions and the Roughriders have started the season with 2-0 records, but only the Roughriders are also 2-0 ATS on the year - the Lions are 1-1 ATS after failing to cover the posted spread in their 39-36 home victory over the Tiger-Cats in Week 2. The Riders have outscored their opponents 60-17 through two weeks, exploding for a 43-16 road win over Hamilton back in Week 1.

Last 10 Meetings: Hamilton 7-3 SU, 6-4 ATS | OU 2-8
The Tiger-Cats are winless on the season after falling to both the Roughriders and the Lions over the first two weeks, managing to at least cover the spread against British Columbia last time out. The Argonauts sit at 1-1 both SU and ATS on the season after getting past Calgary as home underdogs last week, and they're tied with the Alouettes for first place in the Eastern standings.
