The franchise will have plenty of history in the building as they celebrate the anniversary of the 1999 Grey Cup Championship team.

CFL Odds and Betting

Hamilton is 11-3 this season, 9-3-2 against the spread, while the Eskimos are 7-7 on the season, and 4-10 ATS.

The Eskimos are 5-0-2 ATS in their last seven games in Hamilton, but are 1-3-2 ATS against them overall.

These two teams met two weeks ago in Edmonton, with the Tabbies edging out the Eskimos 30-27. In that game, the visitors built up a 24-7 halftime lead and hung on to win it. Bralon Addison had his second best game of the season hauling in four passes for 126 yards and a touchdown.

Of note, the under has been in play in six of the last seven meetings in Hamilton when these two teams have played head to head.

Edmonton Eskimos

The Eskimos are currently in a good position to cross-over into the East division playoff picture, currently holding an eight point lead over the Redblacks, who they beat 21-16 last weekend. The win snapped a four-game losing streak by the Eskimos.

If they are going to maintain that mark, they’ll have to do it without Trevor Harris. Just prior to last game the Eskimos announced that Harris will be put on the six-game IR, and could be ready for the second playoff round if the Eskimos make it that far.

All eyes are now firmly on new starter Logan Kilgore, who will make his third consecutive start this weekend in Hamilton. Kilgore is 1-1 as a starter and is coming off a game where he was 19-of-28 for 223 yards. With Kilgore at quarterback the Esks are 4-of-5 in touchdowns on drives that reach the 20 yard line. Without him, they have 20 touchdowns in 38 visits.

Defence has been a factor as of late, as the Eskimos sacked the Redblacks Quarterbacks six times last weekend. They now sit in the number on spot in the league (team total) one sack ahead of the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats

For the first time in 32 days, the Tiger-Cats will play a game at Tim Horton’s Field. The team will have four games remaining on their schedule, and three of them will be at home. They also have home field advantage during the playoffs as well.

The Tabbies are 6-1 in their last seven and have the best record in the CFL at 11-3. This is the third time the franchise has 11 wins in the last 30 years. They have four games break the franchise record of 12 in a season.

Quarterback Dane Evans has thrown for at least 336 yards or more in four consecutive games. He is now 6-2 as a starter. Both Brandon Bank and Bralon Addison are now 1000+ yard receiving ranked second and third respectively in the league in that category.

Of note, Defensive standout Simoni Lawrence set a new CFL record by making 17 tackles versus the Bombers and Running back Tyrell Sutton played his first game as a member of the Ti-Cats last weekend. He carried the ball eight time for 25 yards, and caught three passes for 32 yards and a touchdown.
