The Montreal Alouettes and Ottawa Redblacks meet Wednesday in CFL action at TD Place Stadium.

The Montreal Alouettes could use a nice road victory here to get a game above a .500 record. The Montreal Alouettes have lost six of their last nine road games. Darian Durant is completing 66.4 percent of his passes for 940 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. Durant has two touchdown passes in his last three games played. B.J. Cunningham and Nik Lewis have combined for 459 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Ernest Jackson has 11 receptions. The Montreal Alouettes ground game is averaging 109.2 yards per contest, and Tyrell Sutton leads the way with 295 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Montreal is allowing 21.2 points and 380.2 yards per game. Kyries Hebert leads the Montreal Alouettes with 28 tackles, John Bowman has one sack and Jonathon Mincy has one interception. 

The Ottawa Redblacks still look for their first win of the season after a 0-3-1 start. The Ottawa Redblacks are 0-4-1 in their last five home games. Trevor Harris is completing 71.5 percent of his passes for 1,379 yards, eight touchdowns and two interceptions. Harris has five touchdown passes in his last three games played. Greg Ellingson and Brad Sinopoli have combined for 754 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Diontae Spencer has 11 receptions. The Ottawa Redblacks ground game is averaging 78.2 yards per contest, and Mossis Madu leads the way with 125 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Ottawa is allowing 30.8 points and 413.2 yards per game. Nicholas Taylor leads the Ottawa Redblacks with 21 tackles, Arnaud Gascon-Nadon has two sacks and Jonathan Rose has five pass deflections.

The Alouettes are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. East and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The RedBlacks are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Alouettes are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 meetings.

Ottawa has won five of the last six meetings against Montreal and has owned the h2h spread as well in recent meetings. The Redblacks have also lost their three games this season by a combined seven points. Ottawa isn't nearly as bad as its record and is due for a breakout performance. It might as well come against a team such as the Montreal Alouettes, who struggles on the road and they've had a lot of success against in the past. i'll eat the reasonable line here.

Pick:
Ottawa Redblacks -3.5
