The Lions are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in August and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. The Tiger-Cats are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games in August. The Lions are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 meetings.
Burris and the Redblacks have been playing some solid football as of late. The game between these two teams back in late July was decided by three points. I'll gladly take Ottawa and the free points here.
