The Ottawa Redblacks look for a win to create some distance in the East. Henry Burris is completing 67.2 percent of his passes for 1,372 yards, seven touchdowns and six interceptions. Burris is coming off a three-touchdown game against Calgary. Chris Williams and Brad Sinopoli have combined for more than 700 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Ernest Jackson has three touchdowns on 22 catches. The Ottawa Redblacks ground game is averaging 71.8 rushing yards per contest, and Chevon Walker leads the way with 192 yards on 57 carries. Defensively, Ottawa is allowing 25.4 points and 325.8 yards per game. Damaso Munoz leads the Redblacks with 18 tackles, Jovon Johnson has two interceptions and Zack Evans has three sacks.
The Alouettes are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The RedBlacks are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS win and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in August. The under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
Ottawa won a very tight game when these teams met back in late June. Montreal has won three of the four meetings overall against Ottawa. With that said, I like the way the Redblacks are playing right now and think they should be able to get the job done on their home field. Give me Ottawa.
