The Toronto Argonauts are playing the better football at the moment, and they just beat up on the Tiger-Cats last week. I can understand why they'd be favored here. However, it's tough to beat the same team twice in back-to-back weeks, and the Tiger-Cats are better than what they showed a few days ago. One of the more balanced attacks in the league, I expect Hamilton to bounce back here at home. I'll grab the free point.
