This Saturday, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats will take a trip out west take on the Lions in British Columbia, an opponent they should be familiar with. These two teams met just a short time ago back on August 10th, and the Tiger-Cats won in come-back fashion 35-34. The result was a real shame for the Lions because that was one of their better performances on the season, and they were catching Dane Evans (Hamilton 2nd string QB) in one of his first games as a starter since No. 1 Jeremiah Masoli went down.

Event: (685) Hamilton Tiger-Cats at (686) B.C. Lions
Sport/League: CFL
Date/Time: August 24, 2019 10PM EDT
Play: Hamilton Tiger-Cats -3.5 (-106)

Although the last time these two teams met they played in a very close and competitive contest, I feel this line is not even close to where it should be. Hamilton is 7-2 Straight up and 6-3 ATS where the Lions are 1-8 straight up and 2-7 ATS. It seems every single week the oddsmakers are posting point spreads involving the Hamilton Tiger-Cats that are just far too small just like last week when Hamilton was favored by 4.5 points against the Redblacks and went on to win by 14. The BC Lions offensive line has been HORRIBLE and that has caused HUGE problems for Mike Reilly and his offence. Even with Dane Evans at QB, this number is far too small and the Ti-Cats have too many weapons on offence for the Lions to handle. Lay a few points here and back the better team.
