The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Montreal Alouettes meet Friday in week 16 CFL action at Molson Stadium. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats need a win after losing 5 of their last 8 games. The Montreal Alouettes look for a win after splitting their last 10 games.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have lost all 6 road games this season. Dane Evans is completing 68 percent of his passes for 2,800 yards, 15 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Tim White and Steven Dunbar have combined for 1,692 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns, while Bralon Addison has 43 receptions. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats ground game is averaging 83.2 yards per contest, and Don Jackson leads the way with 272 yards and 1 touchdown. Defensively, Hamilton is allowing 27.8 points and 359.3 yards per game. Jovan Santos-Knox leads the Hamilton Tiger-Cats with 74 tackles, Julian Howsare has 5 sacks and Kameron Kelly has 5 interceptions.

The Montreal Alouettes have split their last 6 home games. Trevor Harris is completing 69.6 percent of his passes for 2,741 yards, 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Eugene Lewis and Reggie White Jr. have combined for 1,584 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns, while Kaon Julien-Grant has 20 receptions. The Montreal Alouettes ground game is averaging 91.8 yards per contest, and Jeshrun Antwi leads the way with 487 yards on 82 carries. Defensively, Montreal is allowing 26.8 points and 365.5 yards per game. Wes Sutton leads the Montreal Alouettes with 57 tackles, Michael Wakefield has 4 sacks and Marc-Antoine Dequoy has 3 interceptions.

The Tiger-Cats are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The Alouettes are 7-18 ATS in their last 25 Friday games and 5-11 ATS in their last 16 home games. The over is 5-1 in Tiger-Cats last 6 games overall. The over is 7-3 in Alouettes last 10 games overall. The Tiger-Cats are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings in Montreal.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are coming off a feel good win over the Blue Bombers, but it should take more than that to sell you on this club that's had more rough spots than positive. The Montreal Alouettes have played the Tiger-Cats well this season, which includes a win about a month ago, and they've had an extra week to prepare for this game. I'll lay the small chalk with the home team.
