The Hamilton Tiger-Cats look to get back on track after a 1-1 start to the season. Jeremiah Masoli is completing 69.7 percent of his passes for 566 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Masoli has six career touchdown passes. Andy Fantuz and Luke Tasker have combined for 207 receiving yards and one touchdown while Chad Owens has 12 receptions.

The Blue Bombers are 15-6 ATS in their last 21 Thursday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Tiger-Cats are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Thursday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Blue Bombers are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 meetings.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are eager to get back on the field after stinking up the joint last week. The Blue Bombers are a mess right now and are struggling on the defensive end. Willy also isn't much of a difference maker on the offensive side just yet. I'll side with the home team and lay the touchdown.
