Will the Winnipeg Blue Bombers go undefeated?  There’s still a long way to go, but at 9-0 on the year, that question is starting to sound fair.  Next up for the Bombers is a Thursday night home game against the 2-6 Montreal Alouettes.  These teams met last week in Montreal, with Winnipeg powering their way to a 35-20 win.

The Bombers are 12-point favourites to win on the CFL odds, with a total of 48.5.

CFL Odds and Betting

Aside from this year’s meeting, these teams also met twice last season, with the home team winning both of those games.  That was a rare season series split for Montreal as the Alouettes have dropped eight of their last 10 games against Winnipeg.

Montreal enters this game an abysmal 1-4 straight up on the road.  They’re 4-4 against the spread overall in 2022, but they’ve failed to cover in four of their last five games.  The total has gone Over in six of the Als’ eight games this year.

Winnipeg will be feeling good about this matchup as they’ve won six of their last seven home games against the Alouettes.  They’re a healthy 7-2 ATS this season and 18-6 ATS in their last 24 home dates.  The total has gone Under in all three Bombers’ home games this year.

Montreal Alouettes

It looked like Montreal could be on the verge of a monumental upset win last week as they found themselves tied 14-14 with Winnipeg entering the fourth quarter.  Unfortunately, the Alouettes couldn’t hang on when the Blue Bombers turned things up a notch.  Montreal quarterback Trevor Harris went 16-of-26 passing, finishing with 127 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.  Dominique Davis chipped in a touchdown pass of his own late in the fourth quarter.  Geno Lewis led all receivers in the game with 123 yards, while Reggie White Jr. and Tyson Philpot hauled in the touchdown passes.

Harris and Lewis were both given rest days at practice on Monday, but are expected to play this week.  Harris has been dealing with a back issue since taking a hard hit in a Week 8 loss against Hamilton.  Lewis started practice on Monday, but removed his pads after the first offensive drill and sat out the majority of practice for reported maintenance reasons.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers

It took a while, but Winnipeg finally started rolling last week, outscoring the Alouettes 21-6 in the fourth quarter.  Quarterback Zach Collaros went 15-of-26 passing, finishing with 210 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions.  Dalton Schoen and Rasheed Bailey both caught touchdown passes, while Brady Oliveira and Dakota Prukop ran in single scores of their own.

Receiver Greg Ellingson returned as a limited participant in practice on Monday.  Ellignson has missed the last three games with a hip injury.  At the time of his injury, he led the CFL in receptions (34) and receiving yards (518).  Middle linebacker Adam Bighill (shoulder) and defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat (hip) did not practice on Monday.  Ellingson, Bighill and Jeffcoat are all listed as questionable for Thursday.
