Although Montreal has a slight advantage as the Alouettes will be playing their second game of the regular season and Toronto will be opening its regular season, the play here is Toronto. McLeod Bethel-Thompson is a tough quarterback to contain and will take advantage of a weak secondary for Montreal. The Alouettes have failed to cover the number in five of the last six when playing on the road in Toronto. Final Score Prediction, Toronto Argonauts win and cover ATS 31-23.
