Tiger-Cats Roaring into the Postseason

You can’t be faulted for writing off Hamilton after it was, at one point, six games under .500. But with a 5-1 record in the last six games, including four straight wins, these “Tabbies” may be the hottest team in the postseason. However, Hamilton will have to figure out how to win on the road.

The Tiger-Cats are 2-7 on the road versus being 6-3 at home. They will not have a home game this postseason and must go through Montreal and Toronto to make a third straight trip to the Grey Cup. This is still a team that features 11 CFL All-Stars including seven on defense like star defensive back Richard Leonard.

Hamilton allowed the second-fewest net yards from its opponents (327.7) by leading the league in two-and-outs forced. Turnovers will be Hamilton’s key focus as the team lost plenty of games by being the more turnover-prone team thus finishing last in differential (-22).

Home-Cooking For Montreal

If the Tiger-Cats struggle on the road, the Alouettes are not much better at home. Montreal is just 4-5 at the Percival Molson Stadium and 2-3 against division opponents like Hamilton. The Alouettes are 5-2 in their last seven games and both losses came on home turf.

Against the Tiger-Cats, Trevor Harris will look to Eugene Lewis to continue hurting them. The All-Star receiver has 22 catches for 305 yards and three touchdowns in three games against Hamilton. And on defense, Montreal will look to continue forcing Hamilton to commit mistakes.

Montreal edged Hamilton in their third and final regular season meeting by forcing more turnovers and penalties. If the Alouettes can maintain this disparity in efficiency, it will be the right team to bet on online.

Tiger-Cats vs Alouettes Head-to-Head

Hamilton and Montreal are dead even in their last 10 meetings: 5-5 on both spread and Moneyline. While Montreal is 2-1 against Hamilton this season, the Tiger-Cats did eliminate Montreal last season though they did it at home. The total has gone under in five of their last six games.
