The Alouettes are 20-7 ATS in their last 27 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Roughriders are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games in July and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 5-1-1 in Alouettes last 7 Saturday games. The under is 9-3 in Roughriders last 12 games overall. The Alouettes are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 meetings in Saskatchewan.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders are the better team on paper and should be better off at home here. However, we’re getting free points with a Montreal side that just beat up on Saskatchewan last week. Yes, weird things happen and the Alouettes consistent offense is a concern, especially on the road, but we can’t ignore what we saw a few days ago. Also, the Montreal Alouettes have been road covering machines the last couple of years. I’ll take a shot with the free points.

Randy Chambers's Free Pick:
Montreal Alouettes +4.5
