The Ottawa Redblacks and Toronto Argonauts meet Friday in CFL action at BMO Field.
The Ottawa Redblacks need a victory here to snap a seven-game losing streak. The Ottawa Redblacks have lost four of their last five road games. Dominique Davis is completing 62.6 percent of his passes for 2,061 yards, five touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Davis and Jonathon Jennings have combined for 21 interceptions this season. Dominique Rhymes and RJ Harris have combined for 1,495 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Brad Sinopoli has 51 receptions. The Ottawa Redblacks ground game is averaging 79.2 yards per contest, and Mossis Madu leads the way with 413 yards and on 103 carries. Defensively, Ottawa is allowing 30.1 points and 428.2 yards per game. Avery Williams leads the Ottawa Redblacks with 69 tackles, J.R. Tavai has six sacks and Anthony Cioffi has two interceptions.
The Toronto Argonauts need a victory here to snap a three-game losing streak. The Toronto Argonauts have lost their last four home games. McLeod Bethel-Thompson is completing 66.2 percent of his passes for 3,184 yards, 20 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Bethel-Thompson has two or more touchdown passes in seven of his last 10 games. Derel Walker and SJ Green have combined for 1,743 receiving yards and nine touchdowns while Armanti Edwards has 46 receptions. The Toronto Argonauts ground game is averaging 72.1 yards per contest, and James Wilder Jr. leads the way with 323 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Toronto is allowing 34.6 points and 448 yards per game. Abdul Kanneh leads the Toronto Argonauts with 58 tackles, Cleyon Laing has five sacks and Alden Darby has three interceptions.
The RedBlacks are 28-13 ATS in their last 41 road games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a bye week and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Argonauts are 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 vs. East, 7-22-1 ATS in their last 30 Friday games and 5-11-2 ATS in their last 18 games overall. The under is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Argonauts last 5 games overall. The under is 5-2 in RedBlacks last 7 games overall.
Neither of these teams have done much this season and they both have losing records both SU and ATS. However, the Toronto Argonauts have won five of the last eight meetings against the Ottawa Redblacks, which includes a 29-point victory earlier this year when they were 5.5-point underdogs. The Ottawa Redblacks are losing by an average of 12.2 points on the road this season and their offense gets even worse than it is on the year. In a toss-up game between two teams going nowhere fast, I'll take the Argonauts and lay the point.
