Hamilton Tiger-Cats at BC Lions: The Matchup
Key Players to Watch
- Hamilton: James Butler (RB), Taylor Powell (QB), Tim White (WR), D’haquille Williams (WR)
- BC Lions: Mathieu Betts (DE), David Menard (DT), Sione Teuhema (LB), T.J. Lee (DB), Garry Peters (DB)
The Lions are favored with a -10.5 spread and -525 Moneyline. Given the Tiger-Cats’ struggles in recent weeks, especially against the pass, BC seems to be the safer bet here. The over/under is set at 46, and considering both teams’ offensive struggles last week, the under could be a wise pick.
CFL Picks & Prediction
Based on recent performances and the current odds, we predict a BC Lions victory with a score of 28-17. The Lions have a stronger defensive line that could stymie Hamilton’s rush attack, while their passing game seems too potent for the Tiger-Cats’ struggling secondary.
CFL Standings & Context
A win for the Lions would help them maintain a competitive edge in the West Division, where they currently stand at 7-3, just behind Winnipeg at 9-2. Hamilton, with a 3-6 record, needs a win to remain relevant in the East Division, where they are lagging behind Toronto and Montreal.
