The Montreal Alouettes and Hamilton Tiger-Cats meet Friday in CFL action at Tim Hortons Field.
The Montreal Alouettes look to end the year with a victory after not winning a game since August 11. The Montreal Alouettes haven’t won a road game since November 5 of last year.

Cunningham and Ernest Jackson have combined for 1,814 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns while Nik Lewis has 73 receptions.

Defensively, Montreal is allowing 32.2 points and 414.2 yards per game. Kyries Hebert leads the Montreal Alouettes with 108 tackles, John Bowman has eight sacks and Jonathon Mincy has two interceptions.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats also look for a feel good victory here after splitting their last 10 games. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have lost three straight home games. Jeremiah Masoli is completing 62.4 percent of his passes for 2,859 yards, 14 touchdowns and five interceptions. Zach Collaros and Masoli have combined for 22 touchdowns and 12 interceptions this season. Jalen Saunders and Luke Tasker have combined for 2,138 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns while Brandon Banks has 60 receptions.

Larry Dean leads the Hamilton Tiger-Cats with 93 tackles, Justin Capicciotti has seven sacks and Richard Leonard has five interceptions.
The Alouettes are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games, 0-5 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Tiger-Cats are 2-10-2 ATS in their last 14 home games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Friday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Alouettes are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings in Hamilton and the under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
Once again, oddmakers are showing no love to Montreal, but why should they? The Alouettes haven't won a game since the beginning of August and have covered just one in their last 11 games. Montreal is just 3-14 ATS this season overall and is being outscored by 23 points in its last three games. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats also blew the doors off Montreal a couple of weeks ago. Don't love the big line, but this should be a Hamilton victory by double digits based on more of a fade from Montreal.
