The Argonauts are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. East. The RedBlacks are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. East and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall.
Toronto has beaten Ottawa in four of the last five meetings and five of the six matchups have been decided by 10 or less points. Ottawa did beat Toronto on the road a couple of weeks ago, but it's not like either of these teams are playing bad. There's value with the Argonauts and the free touchdown.
