The 5-3 Toronto Argonauts are currently first in the East, but the 4-4 Hamilton Tiger-Cats are right on their tail and Monday afternoon’s battle of Ontario will have first place on the line.

Monday will be Toronto’s second game of the Week 10 schedule after defeating Ottawa 35-16 at home last Wednesday. Meanwhile last week Hamilton dropped their first game at Tim Hortons Field since 2018, losing in overtime to Montreal.

Kickoff at Tim Hortons Field is set for 4:00 p.m. on Canadian Thanksgiving.

CFL Odds and Betting

Recently, Hamilton’s had the upper-hand against their provincial rival. The Tiger-Cats are winners of eight of their last 10 versus the Argos and Toronto’s covered in just two of those meetings. Going further back, Hamilton’s on a 17-5-1 against the spread run against Toronto.

This is the third meeting of the season between Toronto and Hamilton. They split the first two, one of which featured Brandon Banks and neither Jeremiah Masoli. Both will play Monday, as will receiver Bralon Addison who led all Tiger-Cats in Week 9 with nine touches for 80 yards in his 2021 debut.

Hamilton’s a 5.5-point favourite on the CFL odds with the total set at 43.5.

Toronto Argonauts

The McLeod Bethel-Thompson and D.J. Foster quarterback–running back duo is a winning one. Bethel-Thompson’s 3-1 as a starter this season and has earned two straight dubs. Then Foster is breaking out as a dual threat. Last Wednesday he had 65 rushing yards on 18 carries as well as 79 receiving yards on five catches which was highlighted by a 63-yard touchdown.

Chris Jones’ defence has allowed over 400 yards in back-to-back outings, but there’s no cause for concern yet as Toronto also generated two defensive scores against their last time out; linebackers Dexter McCoil and Chris Edwards both brought interceptions back for six.

With pivot Nick Arbuckle recovering, Toronto’s yet to name a starter against Hamilton but at this point it’s hard to sheer away from MBT.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats

One of the most shocking statistics this season is Hamilton ranking last in net offence per game and yards per offensive play. Injuries have played a large factor in both areas, but not to the extent of a league-worst offence. With all of Masoli, Banks, and Addison back last week the Ti-Cats offence still looked a little discombobulated and only had 276 yards to show for. Protection’s the bigger issue as Hamilton’s also allowed a league-high 27 sacks.

The Ti-Cats defence is very strong, but how good they are on offence is still an unknown. Unfortunately for Hamilton, the Argos are lacking unknowns and should be fired up to make a statement on the road. Until they prove otherwise, Hamilton isn’t the king of the East anymore.
