The Lions are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 2-10-1 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Alouettes are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Friday games and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall.

The BC Lions are riding a six-game losing streak and with these losses, they're also just 2-7-1 ATS on the year and 2-4 ATS on the road. In their last three games, the Lions are being outscored by an average of 6.7 points and they lose by an average of 8.1 points on the road. The Montreal Alouettes have covered five of their last seven at home, 10 of their last 14 overall and have had an extra week to prepare for this game. I almost have to lay the touchdown here, as backing the BC Lions isn't an option at the moment.
