Two teams coming off losses look to rebound here in Week 4 as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats invade Montreal to take on the Alouettes.
Hamilton dropped a tough one to Winnipeg, while Montreal dropped their last one to Ottawa.
After starting the season off on the right foot, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats have dropped back to back games to fall below the .500 mark.
After defeating Toronto, the Tiger-Cats offense stumbled against BC and Winnipeg last week.
The Hamilton offense has produced just 27 points combined in the last two games after putting up 42 in their opener. Hamilton’s offense couldn’t get anything going in the first half last week, as they fell behind 22-7 in the 2nd quarter.
QB Jeremiah Masoli threw 2 more interceptions, as he now has a 5:4 touchdown to interception ratio on the season.
The run game has been a major concern for them as well over the past two games. CJ Gable produced just 30 yards, which accounted for over half the team’s rushing yards.
Look for the Tiger-Cats to try and get themselves going here early with the run game, as that is what led to their success in Week 1 when trying to open the pass game.
Montreal hasn’t put up anything impressive offensive numbers through their first two games, but their defense has been the major stand out.
They have allowed 42 points combined through the first two, as last week they tried to give the offense every chance to get the Alouettes back in the contest.
This defense has used the bend, but don’t break mentality. They allowed Ottawa to rack up 548 yards of total offense, but never let them pull away in the game or throw up big quarter numbers.
Like their counterparts here, the run game has almost been non existent this season. Montreal had just 62 rushing yards last week, really putting the pressure on QB Kevin Glenn.
Glenn has compiled just 591 yards of offense with a pair of touchdowns and interceptions to his credit. He threw for 259 yards in last weeks loss, which isn’t necessarily all his fault.
This Montreal receiving core doesn’t have many explosive playmakers out wide. Nickle and Diming down the field is their best bet to find success.

Free Hamilton Tiger-Cats vs. Montreal Alouettes CFL Prediction:
The winner of the ground game will get the edge in this one.
While the running game doesn’t dominate the CFL by any means, establishing one early on can at least open the pass game up and force the defense to have to think about sending more guys towards the back field.
4* Free CFL Betting Pick: Hamilton +1
Underdogs have dominated the early season. Given no significant edge for either team here, take the team who has been stellar on the road ATS.
