BC Lions started the season with two massive home wins. In week 1, they beat down the Elks by 59-15 points. After resting their bye week, the Lions proved their win was no fluke by smashing the Argonauts last Saturday. They handed the Argos a 44-3 humiliating defeat.
On the other hand, the Redblacks are yet to register their first win. They lost home-and-home matches against the reigning Grey Cup champions Blue Bombers, both after showing a great heart.
In week 1, they lost by 19-17 points at Winnipeg on a last-second field goal. They gave away a 4-point final frame lead. In their last match in Week 2, they lost by 12-19 points, turning over a 2-point halftime lead.
Players to Watch
The Lions’ QB Nathan Rourke will be their key man. The first-year Canadian quarterback completed 88% of his passes for 718 yards in two matches. He also made 7 touchdowns and another 93 yards and 2 scores on the ground.
Jeremiah Masoli will be the player to watch for the Redblacks. The 2018 East All-Star QB completed 71% of his passes for 711 yards.

BC Lions vs Ottawa Redblacks Prediction
BC Lions are the better side in terms of recent forms. They are on a 2-0 record with two mammoth wins. Moreover, Nathan Rourke is in incredible form in the QB position.
On the other hand, the home team is on a 0-2 record. Still looking for their first win. The Redblacks, however, put up a great fight against the defending Grey Cup Champions. They were leading in both matches at some points.
After winning the home match last Saturday, the Lions will be on the road. It will be their first away match. After resting only for four days, it would be a difficult challenge for the visiting side at the TD Place Stadium. It is going to be a close battle.
Ottawa Redblacks could draw inspiration from the previous close matches and beat the Lions in front of the home crowd. Give me the Redblacks for this one.
