Randy’s Pick

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are an average at best team that hasn't been able to string together good performances, and they allowed 42 points against Winnipeg in their season opener. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers haven't covered numbers lately, but they are arguably the best team in the league, with the second best scoring offense and second best scoring defense. I have a hard time laying off a line under a touchdown with the Blue Bombers. Give me the road favorite.
