The Montreal Alouettes hope to improve on their road victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Kevin Glenn is completing 71.4 percent of his passes for 332 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Glenn has seven touchdown passes in his last three games. Nik Lewis and S.J. Green have combined for more than 20 receiving yards and one touchdown while Sam Giguère has three receptions.

The RedBlacks are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Alouettes are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The RedBlacks are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings.
Both teams looked solid in the season opener, but it's fair to say a road win over Winnipeg was far more impressive than what Ottawa did. Bottom line is we're getting an explosive Montreal Alouettes club at home in a pick em. I like it.
