CFL/Monday's Picks

Ticats, Argos, Have Sights Set On Labour Day Classic – Hamilton Tiger-Cats

Week 10 of the CFL schedule wraps up today with a pair of matinee contests beginning with Ottawa RedBlacks facing the Montreal Alouettes and concluding with the Toronto Argonauts visiting the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Dunkel's picks for these games are below:

Ottawa at Montreal

  • Date & Time: October 11, 1:00 pm ET
  • Dunkel Ratings: Ottawa 105.961; Montreal 106.935
  • Dunkel Line & Total: Montreal by 1; 52
  • Vegas Line & Total: Montreal by 7 ½; 48 ½
  • Dunkel Pick: Ottawa (+7 ½); Over

On a short week, Ottawa would usually be in tough but are luckily facing the reeling Alouettes, who have little to no home-field advantage. QB Vernon Adams Jr has been a model of inconsistency all year long, and the RedBlacks getting more than a touchdown in this match should prove deadly for bettors backing Montreal.

I expect this game to be decided by a field goal, so the RedBlacks should cover in this spot.

Toronto at Hamilton

  • Date & Time: October 11, 4:00 pm ET
  • Dunkel Ratings: Toronto 114.291; Hamilton 112.485
  • Dunkel Line & Total: Toronto by 2; 39
  • Vegas Line & Total: Hamilton by 4 1/2; 44 1/2
  • Dunkel Pick: Toronto (+4 1/2); Under

The Argonauts will also be coming off a short week following their 35-16 win over the RedBlacks on Wednesday. After trailing 9-8 at the half, the Argos exploded for 27 straight points in the third quarter, including a pair of TD passes from QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson and a pair of pick-sixes from the defense.

Looking to extend their winning streak to three straight, we like the underdog Argos in this spot and are calling for the moneyline upset.
