Alouettes ML + Argonauts ML (-110)…(3%)


The defending Grey Cup Champions are off to a great start to their season, starting 2-0 after victories over the Blue Bombers and Elks. The Al's have looked well-rounded and been solid on both sides of the ball, but their defence will be the biggest factor in their Thursday night game against the Redblacks. The Redblacks started their season off with a bang in Week 2 after they defeated the Blue Bombers as seven-point underdogs, but the difference in this match-up will be the defence they will have to face, especially the pass rush Montreal will have to go after QB Dru Brown. Walter Fletcher has been great in the run game for the Alouettes, so as long as they keep defences guessing, I think the combo of Cody Fajardo's strong arm and their strong rushing game will be far too much to handle. 

Ottawa got a huge win last week, but it was against a Winnipeg team that has looked about as bad as we've seen in years. So, how much do we take out of that win? I think people are a bit too high on Ottawa after that big win. I'm not certain if Montreal will cover the point spread, so playing for them to WIN the game in a parlay was the best decision. 


Once again the market is undervaluing the Toronto Argos. After opening up as 7.5 underdogs to B.C. in Week 1 at most books, the Argos closed as just +4.5 underdogs and ended up winning the game OUTRIGHT. Cameron Dukes looked great at QB and despite the reports of him having an illness, it seems to only be a caution that he sat out during practice. A lot was said about this Argos team and how they would perform without star QB Chad Kelly, but from what I saw in Week 1, they're going to be just fine. The Elks are 0-2 to start the season and will now have to play out east against the Argos who are coming off a bye week. The Elks have allowed the third-most points per game this season and they've played the Riders and Alouettes. When they play the Toronto Argos, I expect them to be overwhelmed by the number of offensive weapons Toronto has. 

This will be a one-sided game and the market is completely wrong with the price.
