You really want to try to make a case for the Montreal Alouettes every week and these big lines, but the bottom line is we watch them get rocked and not only lose SU, but fail to cover 11 of their 14 games this season. Oddsmakers really can't make the line high enough. The Alouettes are being outscored by 13.3 points in their last three games and 19.4 points at home. I'm never the guy who enjoys eating big chalk, but at this point you have to continue fading the Alouettes, as it's worked well up to this point.
