Montreal Alouettes at Hamilton Tiger-Cats Preview
Als quarterback Cody Fajardo is in the spotlight, aiming to rebound from a less-than-stellar 158-yard performance last week. Watch out for receivers Austin Mack and Tyler Snead, who are key players for the Alouettes’ offensive success. However, Hamilton’s defence ranks seventh in both yards given up through the air and on the ground, so it’s definitely not going to be a walk in the park for Montreal.
On the flip side, Hamilton’s Taylor Powell, who will be back under centre, is supported by an offensive line that has allowed the third-fewest sacks with 14. However, with the Alouettes defense currently in the middle of the league against the pass and the run, Powell and his receivers, including D’Haquille Williams and Kai Locksley, will need to up their game.
With the Alouettes being favoured by 2.5 points, the bookmakers are forecasting a close contest. Considering the strengths of the Als’ defense and the uncertainties in Hamilton’s offensive line, the under bet of 45 points could be a wise move. However, bettors should always consider current form, injuries, and team strategies before placing any bets.
CFL Picks & Prediction
Given the Alouettes’ impressive defensive prowess and the strong performances of their key players, they are the favourites for this encounter. However, considering the Tiger-Cats’ home advantage and their recent improvements, this game could go down to the wire. Ultimately, our prediction leans towards a low-scoring match with a scoreline of Alouettes 23-20 Tiger-Cats.
