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.

The Alouettes are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 road games, 1-4 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 3-13 ATS in their last 16 Friday games. The RedBlacks are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games, 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games in November and 1-8 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Alouettes are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Ottawa and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 meetings. The under is 5-1 in RedBlacks last 6 games overall. The under is 8-2 in Alouettes last 10 Friday games.
These previous meetings have been rather competitive, but the Ottawa Redblacks are a team you can blindly fade all year and sit on a pile of cash. The Redblacks are just 2-6 ATS at home and hav failed to cover eight of their last nine games overall. The Montreal Alouettes have been a road covering machine dating back to last season and need another win to build positive vibes as they gear up for the playoffs. This is a lot of chalk to lay, but the Redblacks have had no betting value for months.
