The Montreal Alouettes are desperate for a feel good victory that would snap an eight-game losing streak. The Montreal Alouettes have lost four straight home games. Darian Durant is completing 67.1 percent of his passes for 3,015 yards, 14 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Durant and Drew Willy have combined for 15 touchdown passes and 16 interceptions this season. B.J. Cunningham and Ernest Jackson have combined for 1,593 receiving yards and nine touchdowns while Nik Lewis has 70 receptions.

The Tiger-Cats are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games, 3-8 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Alouettes are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a bye week and 0-8 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Tiger-Cats are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 meetings and the under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have had some recent success on the road, while, uh, the Montreal Alouettes haven't had anything go their way the last couple of months. Montreal is being outscored by 26 points in its last three games and seven points at home this season overall. While neither team has been good against the number, the Alouettes are just 3-12 this season and have failed to cover a single game during their losing streak. The Tiger-Cats have flaws of their own, but you can't back Montreal in this form. I'll lay the field goal with the road team.
