The Argonauts are 12-2 ATS in their last 14 games in September and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 vs. East. The Tiger-Cats are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games in September. The Argonauts are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 meetings.
Hamilton has beaten Toronto in five of the last seven meetings and has been extremely tough to beat at home. I expect the Tiger-Cats to bounce back in front of their home fans at home.
