The Montreal Alouettes and Hamilton Tiger-Cats meet Friday in CFL action at Tim Hortons Field.
The Montreal Alouettes look for their first win of the season and are fresh off a bye week. The Montreal Alouettes have lost six of their last eight road games. Vernon Adams is completing 70 percent of his passes for 134 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Adams and Antonio Pipkin have combined for 191 passing yards this season. B.J. Cunningham and Geno Lewis have combined for 137 receiving yards and one touchdown while DeVier Posey has three receptions. The Montreal Alouettes ground game is averaging 134 yards per contest, and William Stanback leads the way with 76 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Montreal is allowing 32 points and 608 yards per game. Taylor Loffler leads the Montreal Alouettes with 10 tackles, Patrick Levels has one pass deflection and Tommie Campbell has one forced fumble.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats look for another victory to build on their already strong 2-0 record. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have split their last eight home games. Jeremiah Masoli is completing 67.8 percent of his passes for 507 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. Masoli has at least one touchdown pass in 14 of his last 16 games. Brandon Banks and Bralon Addison have combined for 205 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Sean Thomas Erlington has six receptions. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats ground game is averaging 112 yards per contest, and Erlington leads the way with 177 yards on 23 carries. Defensively, Hamilton is allowing 15.5 points and 344 yards per game. Tunde Adeleke leads the Tiger-Cats with 10 tackles, Simoni Lawrence has two sacks and Mike Daly has one interception.
The Alouettes are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a bye week, 8-1 ATS in their last 9 road games and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Tiger-Cats are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. East, 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 Friday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in June. The Alouettes are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Hamilton and the over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Tiger-Cats last 5 games overall. The under is 9-3 in Alouettes last 12 road games.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have been arguably the most impressive team up to this point when you consider expectations weren't that high to start the season. The Tiger-Cats have looked promising and are a team to watch moving forward. Still, this is a lot of points a Montreal Alouettes squad that's had an extra week to prepare and more than held their own on the road against Edmonton opening week. The road team has also won eight of the last 10 meetings between Montreal and Hamilton. I'll take my chances with the two free touchdowns.
