Montreal vs Winnipeg: CFL Week 9 Handicapping Advice
Blue Bombers have cooled after scorching hot start
After flying out of the gate with a 5-1 CFL 2014 start, Winnipeg has fallen on tough times as they have lost two straight contests. Although the West has enjoyed a 20-3 run over the East so far this season - Winnipeg has given up one of the West loses as they were pummeled 38-21 by the Argonauts in Toronto nine days ago, The Blue Bombers (5-3) should be well rested and have had plenty of time to stew over their mini-losing streak. As such, they should be a motivated Crew as they play a rematch of their 34-33 Week 3 road win in Montreal.
Montreal Alouettes take their offensive offense on the road again
Montreal's inability to score points is becoming an embarrassment - not only for them - but for the entire CFL as well. Following their 16-11 loss to the Roughriders in Regina last weekend, the Alouettes have now scored one TD on offense over their last four contests. All of those games were losses and Montreal has now been outscored by a combined 114-43 total count over their last 16 quarters of football. Although they played well on defense last week - back-to-back road trips are never easy as Montreal heads back to the prairies tonight.
