Montreal vs Ottawa: Struggling East Side Squads Open CFL Week Ten
Alouettes are looking to revive their flat-lining offense
Averaging 15.6 points per game on offense in the CFL always computes to a losing record and that's certainly the case in Montreal. Wishing Anthony Calvillo would come out retirement, the Alouettes sit last in the league with an average of 191 pass yards and 288 total yards per game. The Als have punched in two touchdowns on offense during their last five games - yikes! Battles that feature Donk vs Donk offenses are normally won on defense and we feel that Montreal has the "slightly" better D of the two battling in this contest tonight.
Redblacks: Somewhat decent start has spiraled sharply downward
Ottawa opened their CFL expansion season with a 1-2 mark and played in some fairly close contests as the combined score of those three games was 80-57 for their opponents. Since then though, the Redblacks have been outscored 141-79 in five straight losses. Veteran QB Henry "Smilin' Hank" Burris is flaming out big time in Ottawa as the Redblacks offense has scored just 14 points over their last three games. Burris has five TD passes to go along with six interceptions on his 242 pass attempts and he was benched late last week as Calgary blasted the Redblacks for the second time in three weeks. Being an expansion squad is not fun. CFL Prediction: Tread lightly here and back the Alouettes with a 210 unit spread wager at bet365.
