Zach Collaros is completing 70.2 percent of his passes for 1,215 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. Collaros has two touchdowns and three picks in his last two games.

The Argonauts are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. East and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Tiger-Cats are 4-0 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in August. The Argonauts are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings.
Toronto has beaten Hamilton in six of the last 10 meetings and has gotten off to an incredible start. However, this is the first home ame of the season for the Tiger-Cats, and you can expect a packed house that's quite loud. Remember, this is a Hamilton team that finished 7-2 SU on its home field last year. I give the edge to the Tiger-Cats here.
