The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Montreal Alouettes meet Saturday in CFL action at Molson Stadium.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats look to keep the ball rolling after winning 10 of their last 12 games. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have won five of their last eight road games. Dane Evans is completing 71.4 percent of his passes for 3,375 yards, 17 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Jeremiah Masoli and Evans have combined for 26 touchdowns and 19 interceptions. Brandon Banks and Bralon Addison have combined for 2,532 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns while Jaelon Acklin has 54 receptions. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats ground game is averaging 101.4 yards per contest, and Sean Thomas Erlington leads the way with 224 yards on 33 carries. Defensively, Hamilton is allowing 18.8 points and 365 yards per game. Simoni Lawrence leads the Tiger-Cats with 91 tackles, Ja'Gared Davis has 12 sacks and Jumal Rolle has five interceptions.
The Montreal Alouettes could use a feel good win after splitting their last six games. The Montreal Alouettes have won their last five home games. Vernon Adams is completing 64.6 percent of his passes for 3,674 yards, 20 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Adams has two or more touchdown passes in five of his last nine games. Geno Lewis and DeVier Posey have combined for 1,763 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Quan Bray has 54 receptions. The Montreal Alouettes ground game is averaging 124.5 yards per contest, and William Stanback leads the way with 1,003 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Montreal is allowing 25.9 points and 422 yards per game. Henoc Muamba leads the Montreal Alouettes with 84 tackles, John Bowman has eight sacks and Greg Reid has three interceptions.
The Tiger-Cats are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games, 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 6-0-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Alouettes are 6-16 ATS in their last 22 games following a ATS loss, 23-7 ATS in their last 30 Saturday games and 12-3 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Tiger-Cats are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Montreal. The under is 4-1 in Alouettes last 5 home games. The under is 5-1 in Tiger-Cats last 6 road games.
The Montreal Alouettes have won two of the last three meetings against the Tiger-Cats, but this is a different version of the two teams. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are winning their last three games by an average of 23.7 points and have positioned themselves probably as the favorites to win it all at this point. The Montreal Alouettes continue to be hit or miss, and while they play their best football at home, they're winning by an average of just 2.5 points. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are not a team I'm trying to step in front of right now.
