With two weeks remaining in the season, the 7-5 Hamilton Tiger-Cats are heading up the road to Toronto for a clash with the 8-4 Argonauts, and it’s the biggest CFL game of 2021 thus far.

A win for Toronto, who is 5-0 at home, clinches them first in the East. But if Hamilton’s able to win on the road, both these Ontario rivals head into the final week with eight wins. Toronto leads the season series 2-1 too as these teams prepare for their fourth regular season battle.

Kickoff at BMO Field Friday goes at 7:30 p.m. EST.

CFL Odds and Betting

The Argos have been able to move the ball with ease on Hamilton this season. Toronto’s registered a minimum of 330 yards in all three of their meetings with the Ti-Cats in 2021 which has led to two overs hitting in their three matchups.

Toronto’s 8-4 to the over on the season, while Hamilton’s 8-4 to the under. Five of Hamilton’s six road games in 2021 have gone under the total but four of Toronto’s five home games went over. For the record, the lone under between the Argos and Ti-Cats this season was at Toronto.

Friday’s game is listed as pick’em, with the over-under set at 45 on the CFL odds.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats

For nearly all season the Ti-Cats have fielded a top-three defence when it comes to points against, yards against, and turnovers forced… but look out as Hamilton’s now rolling on offence.

Jeremiah Masoli has 1,296 passing yards to go with nine touchdowns and zero interceptions in his past four starts. Masoli’s season high of 361 yards came in the Tabbies’ most recent loss which happened to be against Toronto. Then there’s Don Jackson; the running back has 256 total yards in his last two starts while averaging 7.1 yards a carry.

Even Brandon Banks is showing flashes of his 2019 MOP season. He led all Ti-Cats receivers last week with six catches for 75 yards and scored his first major of 2021.

Toronto Argonauts

Despite being 8-4, Toronto isn’t passing the eye test as of late. They squeaked out a 23-20 win against Ottawa in Week 14 where McLeod Bethel-Thompson tossed three interceptions. Ottawa’s gashed Toronto for 143 rushing yards but did only pass for 90 yards. A.J. Ouellette did steal the show on offence for Toronto after rushing for 107 yards on 14 carries in relief of an injured John White, the latter missed practice Tuesday too with a knee injury.

Toronto’s now allowed the second-most touchdowns (31) this season and are giving up the second-most yards per play (6.4). Parlay this with head coach Ryan Dinwiddie making costly mistakes on a weekly basis and it’s not looking good for Toronto.
