The Hamilton Tiger-Cats look for another victory after winning three of their last four games. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have lost five of their last six home games. Zach Collaros is completing 62.7 percent of his passes for 1,743 yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions.

The Argonauts are 1-11 ATS in their last 12 road games, 3-11 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The Tiger-Cats are 1-9-2 ATS in their last 12 home games, 1-7 ATS in their last 8 Saturday games and 5-14-2 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The Argonauts are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Hamilton, 2-9 ATS in their last 11 meetings and the under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Hamilton.
The home team has won eight of the last 10 meetings between the Argonauts and Tiger-Cats, and that's key considering Toronto has had no road success this season. The Tiger-Cats also won the last meeting against Toronto, and they're allowing nine less points in their last three games than their season average. Hamilton is playing some decent football as of late and the Argonauts have failed to cover 11 of their last 12 games on the road. The only reason Toronto is the favorite here is because it has a better record this season overall. I'll take my free field goal with the Tiger-Cats here at home.
