CFL East Final: Montreal vs Hamilton Prediction

Hamilton will be hosting their first East Division final since 1998, and the fans have shown their support as this game was already sold out over a week ago.

The oddsmakers have Hamilton as the -3 point favourites over Montreal with a game total of 47 points. All betting odds can be found online at Bodog.

Montreal won the East semifinal by a wide margin, but this was also against a BC Lions team that had tanked the final three games of the season, and looked comical at times against the Als. Jonathan Crompton only threw for 155 yards, and most of the Montreal points came off of turnovers due to the inept BC offense.

Zach Collaros and Hamilton will pose a completely different threat than the BC Lions did. Collaros is a mobile quarterback who is capable of making the big plays — and he has relished his role as starter this season. Collaros has already bought tickets for friends and family from the football-crazy State of Ohio. This game is also being braodcast on ESPN for our neighbours down south, which I am sure will be on the mind of Collaros and others.

Since Tim Hortons Field was completed, the Hamilton Ticats have not been defeated at home, and ended the season on a 6-0 run, which included the season finale against Montreal where they won the right to his the East final. Montreal will need to get their running game going again if they want any chance of advancing to the Grey Cup. However, in the loss to Hamilton they were only able to muster a paltry 17 yards for the entire game.

Montreal is 3-6 ATS in its last 9 games when playing on the road against Hamilton
Montreal is 0-5 SU in its last 5 games when playing on the road against Hamilton
Hamilton is on a 6-0 streak at Tim Hortons Field

Prediction: Take Hamilton -3 and the home field advantage in this one.
