The Montreal Alouettes are playing their best ball of the season right now, they’ve won five of the last six meetings against the Redblacks, and that includes a win last week. The Ottawa Redblacks have been god awful both SU and ATS these last three years, and they really don’t do anything well on either side of the ball. The Redblacks have been held to 16 or fewer points in seven of their nine games, and the defense gets gashed against the run. The Alouettes have the best rushing offense in the league. I’ll lay the chalk.
