Ottawa Redblacks at Montreal Alouettes: Breaking It Down
The Redblacks are coming off an underwhelming 2022 season, and they’ll be looking to make a statement against the Alouettes. With Jeremiah Masoli sidelined, Nick Arbuckle will take the reins at quarterback. He’ll be looking to connect with receiver Jaelon Acklin, who had an impressive 1,169 receiving yards last season. On defense, the Redblacks will miss Monshadrik Hunter, but Hakeem Bailey, Justin Howell, and Abdul Kanneh will need to step up in the secondary.
Key Player for Ottawa: Nick Arbuckle, the quarterback will need to have a solid game to give Ottawa a chance to win.
On the other side, the Alouettes will be looking to capitalize on their home-field advantage. Cody Fajardo will be under center for Montreal and he will be looking to establish a rhythm early in the game. Montreal’s rushing attack will also be vital, with William Stanback and Jeshrun Antwi leading the charge.
Key Player for Montreal: William Stanback, a healthy Stanback could provide a much-needed boost to the Alouettes’ running game.
Considering Ottawa’s past performance and the absence of their starting quarterback, Jeremiah Masoli, Montreal seems to have the upper hand in this matchup. With Cody Fajardo at quarterback and a potentially explosive running game, the Alouettes are likely to cover the spread (-2.5).
However, the REDBLACKS have won 10 of their last 11 games in Montreal, which could be a motivating factor for them. The Over/Under is set at 43.5, and considering this is the first game of the season, the defenses might take a while to get settled in, so taking the Over might be a wise decision.
Recommended Bet: Montreal to win and cover the spread, Over 43.5 total points.
Remember to gamble responsibly and enjoy the game! This marks the beginning of what is sure to be an electrifying season of CFL football.
