Kilgore has one career passing touchdown. Kenny Shaw and Vidal Hazelton have combined for more than 700 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Brandon Whitaker has 28 receptions.

The Blue Bombers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a bye week and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games in August. The Argonauts are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a bye week and 8-20 ATS in their last 28 home games. The Blue Bombers are 9-21 ATS in their last 30 meetings in Toronto.
Toronto has beaten Winnipeg and is one of the hotter teams in the CFL at the moment. The Blue Bombers have been real inconsistent this season and haven't won a game in Toronto since 2012. So, give me the Argonauts and the low line.
