Edmonton Elks vs Montreal Alouettes Prediction

We’re still feeling these teams out early in the season, and the Edmonton Elks could come out of nowhere and surprise us. However, the Elks have give bettors no reason to get behind them dating back to last season, and their debut this year didn’t change much. The Elks have lost 5 straight games and failed to cover all 5 of those losses. The Montreal Alouettes are obviously on the complete opposite side after winning the Grey Cup and riding a 9-game winning streak. The Alouettes are 9-0-1 ATS in their last 10 games. Two teams on opposite sides of the betting market right now. Give me the Alouettes by a touchdown.
