The Montreal Alouettes look to build on their two-game winning streak and get to 3-2 at home. Rakeem Cato is completing 69.2 percent of his passes for 1,850 yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions. Cato is probable despite suffering a hip injury. S.J. Green and Nik Lewis have combined for more than 1,000 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Fred Stamps has 22 receptions. The Montreal Alouettes ground game is averaging 123.8 yards per contest, and Tyrell Sutton leads the way with 482 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Montreal is allowing 19 points and 360.3 yards per game. Winston Venable leads the Alouettes with 50 tackles, Jonathan Hefney has three interceptions and John Bowman has six sacks.
The Lions are 20-9 ATS in their last 29 games in September and 2-8-2 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Alouettes are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in September and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Lions are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings in Montreal and 23-9 ATS in their last 32 meetings overall.
The Alouettes are coming off a big time confidence win when Cato missed most of it due to injury. That could do big things bringing this team together. At home, I like Montreal over the struggling Lions.
