HAM -3.5 Total 49.5
The Tiger-Cats are coming into this game after getting a rough win over the BC club on Saturday night. That was a game that ended up with a final score of 35-34 and what is really sad is it exploited some of the weaknesses on defense that the Tiger-Cats had been trying to hide most of the year.
Dane Evans came into the game at quarterback and was able to throw for a total of260 yards and a couple of touchdowns. The rushing attack for the Tiger-Cats was present, but it was not that great. Cameron Marshall was the leading rusher with a total of 7 carries for 40 yards in the game.
With the Redblacks they are coming into the game after losing a game to Edmonton by a score of 16-14. The good news is the Redblacks defense finally decided to show up in a game. The downside is the defense still did not do enough to stop the opponents from scoring late in the game to pull off the win.
The Redblacks relied on Dominique Davis to throw the ball for the team. He was not horrible with 289 yards and a touchdown, but was picked off twice in the game. John Crockett is the player who the Redblacks relied on for carrying the ball with 13 carries, but he did manage to get 89 yards in the game.

Under is 5-1 in RedBlacks last 6 vs. a team with a winning record.
The Redblacks do have a decent defense at times, but the offense and in particular the passing attack has had quite a few issues as the turnovers can haunt and even with a great defense if they do not get the rest needed then they are going to give up the big play and that is what happened against Edmonton. Look for that type of problem to continue, but even with the horrible Tiger-Cats defense the Redblacks offense cannot take advantage. Final Score, Hamilton Tiger-Cats win and cover ATS 24-14.
