Argonauts vs. Tiger-Cats Picks
Argonauts vs. Tiger-Cats ML Pick
Argonauts (+100) ★★★★
It’s historically difficult to beat a team twice in two weeks. However, these teams don’t seem to be on the same level.
Hamilton quarterback Dane Evans threw three interceptions last week. Even if the Tiger-Cats decide to start Matt Shiltz instead, Toronto’s defense added four sacks and forced a fumble. And even though McLeod Bethel-Thompson had one interception, he threw for three touchdowns in last week’s win. Expect the same this week in Hamilton.
Argonauts vs. Tiger-Cats ATS Pick
Argonauts +1.0 (-110) ★★★★
Toronto beat Hamilton by 17 points last week. Now they find themselves the dogs.
One thing the Argonauts will need to do is get their running game going. They only ran for 43 yards last week. The Tiger-Cats ran for 64 yards. The last time these two teams played in Hamilton, the Ticats were able to win with a strong running game, rushing for 147 total yards. That’s more than their other two games combined, so I don’t see it being repeated.
Hamilton has home field, but the Argos have the talent.
Argonauts vs. Tiger-Cats O/U Pick
Over 50.5 (-110) ★★★
The Tiger-Cats turned the ball over four times last week but still put up 20 points.
This is the fourth time these teams have met in the last five weeks. They averaged 57 combined points in the previous three games. Neither team has been able to completely slow the offense of the other.
This game might be slowed slightly if the weather picks up, with rain expected. However, until these teams show they can slow each other, the Over feels good.
