Hamilton is 5-0-2 ATS in its last 7

The OVER has cashed in 10 of the Tiger-Cats last 13 versus East opponents

Hamilton is the top team in the CFL at 12-3. The Tiger-Cats will defeat the undermanned RedBlacks, who will start the inexperienced Will Arndt at quarterback. However, the double-digit spread will be too much for the Tiger-Cats to cover as Hamilton will be eyeing its next game against Montreal the second place team in the East. Final Score Prediction, Hamilton Tiger-Cats win but fall short ATS 34-19
