Can the Toronto Argonauts hang on to the top spot in the East Division? Find out with our Hamilton Tiger-Cats-Argonauts picks for Week 9 in the CFL.  

The top two teams in the East Division meet this week in The Six. The Argonauts are hoping to see their high-priced free agents heat up and stay in control of the East Division.

Tiger-Cats vs. Argonauts ML Pick

Tiger-Cats (+110)

Hamilton enters this week with a 2-5 record but as the winner of two of its last three games. In that span, the Tiger-Cats have beaten two division rivals in the Ottawa Redblacks and the Alouettes. They were also in position for a possible game winning score against the B.C. Lions, who are one of the top teams in the West Division, two weeks ago. 

The Argonauts have also won two of their last three games. However, two of those wins came against the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Their last matchup saw the Riders without several key players including quarterback Cody Fajardo. 

Last week, the Redblacks picked up their first win of the season against the Argos with Toronto entering the matchup as a 4-point favorite. 

Tiger-Cats vs. Argonauts ATS Pick

Tiger-Cats +2 (-110)

The Ticats covered the spread in back-to-back games heading into this week. They are now 2-5 ATS this season. Two weeks ago, they covered a 9.5-point spread against the Lions in a 17-12 loss. Last week, they were 3-point underdogs to Montreal and won that game outright. 

Toronto is 3-3 ATS this season. The Argos were the favorites in two of the three games in which they failed to cover the spread. In Week 2, they won by a single point against the Alouettes after closing as 3-point favorites. Last week, they were also favored by 3.5 points against Ottawa. They lost to the Redblacks by 10 points.

Tiger-Cats vs. Argonauts O/U Pick

 Over 45 (-110)

The Tiger-Cats have been in three games this season that exceeded this points total. Hamilton is averaging 20 points per game; however, it scored at least 24 points in two out of the last three games. The Tiger-Cats defense is allowing 25 points per game.

Toronto has three games that hit this Over and one that hit this exact number. The Argos are averaging just under 20 points per game this season. That said, they scored at least 30 points in two out of their last three games. The Argonauts are allowing just under 26 points per game to their opponents.
