The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have won three of their last five home games. Jeremiah Masoli is completing 70.7 percent of his passes for 1,638 yards, 8 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. Jaelon Acklin and Tim White have combined for 1,084 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns, while Steven Dunbar has 35 receptions. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats ground game is averaging 99.9 yards per contest, and Sean Thomas Erlington leads the way with 284 yards and 3 touchdowns. Defensively, Hamilton is allowing 17.5 points and 327.9 yards per game. Simoni Lawrence leads the Hamilton Tiger-Cats with 61 tackles, Ja’Gared Davis has 4 sacks and Cariel Brooks has 4 interceptions.

The Lions are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Tiger-Cats are 11-4-1 ATS in their last 16 home games and 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Lions last 5 games overall. The under is 11-3 in Tiger-Cats last 14 games overall.

The BC Lions continue to pile up the losses and failed covers, and their defensive effort has been ridiculously poor during this losing streak. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have been profitable all season long, their defense is getting better, and they need to keep winning if they’re going to make the postseason. The last two meetings between BC and Hamilton have been decided by a combined four points, but this year’s version of BC is flat out awful. Give me Hamilton by a touchdown.
