Montreal Alouettes +3 vs BC Lions -3 — Over/Under 48.5

The Montreal Alouettes are in bad shape and now they must head out on the road to BC Place, where they have only won once in the province of British Columbia since 2000. Montreal’s Rakeem Cato has struggled at the quarterback positions, but the defense has been solid, which has caused a lot of low scoring games for the Al’s. The BC Lions got trounced last week in Hamilton, and will be looking to regain some pride at home.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Montreal’s last 7 games
Montreal is 1-3-2 ATS in its last 6 games on the road
The total has gone UNDER in 11 of Montreal’s last 14 games on the road
Montreal is 0-5 SU in its last 5 games on the road
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of British Columbia’s last 6 games when playing at home against Montreal
British Columbia is 14-1 SU in its last 15 games when playing at home against Montreal

Hamilton Ticats -2 vs Edmonton Eskimos +2 — Over/Under 50

The Ticats record when playing in Hamilton is well known, but it is a different story when playing on the road, especially in Edmonton where they have won just once in their last 7 games. The Eskimos are unbeaten at home in 2015, and QB Mike Nichols has been cleared to play after a concussion scare last week.

Hamilton is 1-6 SU in its last 7 games when playing on the road against Edmonton
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Hamilton’s last 5 games on the road
Edmonton is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games at home
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Edmonton’s last 7 games at home

Calgary Stampeders -6.5 vs Saskatchewan Roughriders +6.5 — Over/Under 51.5

The Saskatchewan Roughriders are still looking for their first win of 2015 when they host the CFL leading Calgary Stampeders on Saturday, August 22. This is one of 15 games left for the Roughriders at Mosaic Stadium, and the fans are showing support and this game is already sold out. So, this could be a prime opportunity for Saskatchewan to give their fans something back.

Calgary is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games when playing Saskatchewan
The total has gone OVER in 6 of Calgary’s last 8 games when playing Saskatchewan
Saskatchewan is 1-9 ATS in its last 10 games at home
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Saskatchewan’s last 6 games at home

Ottawa Redblacks +9 vs Toronto Argonauts -9 — Over/Under 50.5

In a battle of Ontario, the Redblacks will be facing the Argos at Rogers Centre, where the Redblacks have not won as a franchise. Argos QB Trevor Harris will be the starter for another 6 games at least, as Ricky Ray has returned to the injured list. Toronto is rightfully the favourite over an Ottawa team that just got beaten badly on the road in Calgary and have won just once on the road in their last 15 games.

Ottawa is 1-15 SU in its last 16 games on the road
The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Ottawa’s last 8 games when playing Toronto
Ottawa is 0-5 SU in its last 5 games when playing on the road against Toronto
The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Toronto’s last 11 games
