The Lions are coming off a huge win by 59-15 points over Elks followed by their bye week. They will be looking for their second win in a row against the visiting Argos.
Toronto Argonauts, meanwhile, will take their 1-0 record on the road to stop a Lions side on the high. The Argos won their home-opener in Week 2 in a nail-biter against the Alouettes.
The Argos started the final frame with a 10-point lead. They barely got over the line by a 20-19 victory, thanks to a missed field goal opportunity from the Als at death.

Argonauts vs Lions Pick and Prediction
The Lions are the favorites to win their home game in the eyes of the oddsmakers. They were impressive in the opening game in week 1 and bagged a mammoth victory. This fact has changed all the equations of the game.
Quarterback Nathan Rourke was magnificent for the Lions in week 1. The 24-year-old completed 89.7% of his passes for 282 yards and scored 3 touchdowns. He will be the player to watch for the Lions.
On the other hand, the Argos bagged a narrow victory at home against the Als in week 1. Their offense was not as explosive compared to last season. However, with Andrew Harris on the side, the Argos’ offense could be a lot more aggressive.
Toronto Argonauts are a different side than the Elks. The Lions could find it difficult against the Argos. Hence, it would be a closer game than what the odds suggest.
Our pick is the Argonauts for this game to grab a narrow victory.
