Winnipeg Blue Bombers
The Bombers suffered their first loss of the season at the hands of the BC Lions, a setback they would want to rectify as they go head-to-head with the Alouettes. The spotlight will be on QB Zach Collaros who will be aiming to bounce back after a disappointing outing last week where he managed only 159 yards and zero touchdowns. A key player to watch would be Carlton Agudosi who surprised everyone with six catches for 61 yards against the Lions.
The Winnipeg defense, led by Jackson Jeffcoat, will be tested against the Alouettes’ QB Cody Fajardo who has been sacked ten times in the last two games. This could be a golden opportunity for the Bombers to put pressure on the Alouettes’ offense.
The Alouettes have been in exceptional form this season, boasting a clean sheet in their win column so far. Cody Fajardo, despite facing high pressure, has managed to maintain an average of 276.5 passing yards per game. Rookie Austin Mack has been emerging as a standout performer, creating a potent threat to the Winnipeg defense.
The Alouettes’ run game, however, needs to improve. While William Stanback managed to clock 69 yards on nine carries, they will be hoping for an enhanced performance from him against the Bombers.
Winnipeg is favored by 6 points, according to the latest betting odds, with an over/under set at 48 points. Given the recent performances of both teams, the Bombers will have to focus on boosting their offensive capabilities to cover the spread.
CFL Prediction & Picks
Considering the current form of both teams, it could be a closely contested game. Montreal’s strong offense and Winnipeg’s resilient defense make for an interesting match-up. However, if Winnipeg manages to exploit Montreal’s vulnerability in protecting Fajardo, the Blue Bombers could edge the Alouettes in this encounter.
Predicted Score: Winnipeg Blue Bombers 28, Montreal Alouettes 24.
