Underdogs

The experts were calling the 2nd place Saskatchewan Roughriders the underdogs going into today’s Western Final against the 1st place B.C. Lions. I can’t say they won in convincing style, with a lot (most?) of their points coming from turn-overs. However the final score of 26-17 in favour of the ‘Riders is what matters.

The big one will be next Sunday, when the ‘Riders will play the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for the coveted Grey Cup. The ‘Riders had a slightly better regular season this year. Is the difference between a 12 win – 6 loss season versus a 10 win – 7 loss – 1 tie season enough to call the Bombers underdogs?
