Redblacks vs. Tiger-Cats ML Pick
It’s hard to envision a scenario in which the Redblacks can pull off an upset.
The Tiger-Cats are winless, but quarterback Dane Evans has thrown for 1,081 yards, though he’s also recorded eight interceptions. With Ottawa allowing 277.5 passing yards and 118.8 rushing yards per game, Hamilton should be able to move the ball easily enough.
The Tiger-Cats are also coming off a week of rest. They'll be fresh with a solid game plan.
Redblacks vs. Tiger-Cats Spread Pick
RedBlacks +7 (-110)
No Masoli means the Redblacks will be relying on running back William Powell.
Powell has only played two games since returning from an injury, but he's rushed for over 50 yards in each contest. While the Redblacks may lose, they should still be able to keep this one close. Hamilton has struggled just as much in its four games.
Before a Week 5 28-13 loss to Saskatchewan, Ottawa had recorded three straight defeats by only a combined 12 points.
Redblacks vs. Tiger-Cats O/U Pick
Under 44.5 (-110)
Both of these teams have been poor on defense, but each club has also been limping along offensively. Ottawa is averaging 18.3 points per game, while Hamilton is averaging 20.
The Redblacks’ approach should be to run the ball and control the clock, leading to a low-scoring game.
