The Tiger-Cats continued their rebound from a shaky start to the season with last week’s 34-27 win over the East Division-leading Toronto Argonauts. The Als return home on a high in the wake of last week’s 20-17 upset win in Winnipeg, but have earned the victory in just one of three home dates this season.

The Alouettes return home perched as 3-point favourites to win on the CFL Week 11 odds. The Tiger-Cats lag as +130 moneyline underdogs, and the total is pegged at a lofty 48.5.

CFL Odds and Betting

Saturday afternoon’s matchup at Percival Molson Stadium marks the second of three regular season meetings between these East Division rivals. The Ti-Cats powered to a 24-17 victory when the Alouettes visited Tim Hortons Field back on July 28, and have now taken home the win in four of five dates with Montreal. The Tiger-Cats have also enjoyed success in recent trips to Montreal, going 6-1-0 straight up and against the spread over their past seven.

Hamilton has run up the score with regularity during their current road surge in Montreal, averaging 34.4 points per game and claiming victory by an average margin of 21.8 points over their past six road wins over the Als. The OVER has also paid out regularly when the Ti-Cats visit Montreal, going 4-1-0 over their past five tilts. The Alouettes have racked up a steady 20-2-0 record when hosting Hamilton as betting chalk, but have covered just six times over that run.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats

The Tiger-Cats took a big step towards resurrecting their season with last week’s victory over East-leading Toronto. But once again, they did it the hard way. For the fourth time in five games, the Ti-Cats failed to find the end zone in fist quarter action, and have now averaged just 2.8 points in the first frame over that stretch.

However, the Hamilton offence turned things around in the fourth quarter, scoring 17 points to eke out the win. With starter Dane Evans on the shelf with a shoulder injury, Matthew Shiltz turned in a steady performance under centre, particularly in the final frame, when he orchestrated a pair of impressive scoring drives. And with Evans yet to return to practice this week, Shiltz looks poised to make a second straight start in Montreal.

Montreal Alouettes

It took a late-game field goal and some defensive heroics in overtime last week for the Alouettes to do what no other team has done this season – defeat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Mired in a 1-4-0 run, both straight up and against the spread, the Als turned in a character performance in Winnipeg, refusing to give up despite blowing a pair of early leads. A strong defensive performance proved key, particularly in the final frame, when Montreal recovered a forced fumble by Winnipeg pivot Zach Collaros that they would later convert into a game-tying field goal. The squad’s rush defence was also key in halting a late Bombers drive that ended with a missed field goal attempt that sent the game to OT.

However, the Als will need more out of quarterback Trevor Harris if they are to extend their recent road dominance over Montreal. Harris failed to connect on a scoring pass for the third time this season while compiling just 213 yards. However, he was steady in the team’s win over Montreal earlier this season, when he threw for 288 yards and one score. The question is whether he has fully recovered from the back ailment that kept him out of practice earlier this week.
