Stephen Nover's CFL Friday Destroyer
Ottawa vs. Montreal,
08/02/2019 19:00 EDT,
Score: 30 - 27
Point Spread: +7/-105 Ottawa
The Alouettes are on a three-game win streak and favored for the first time this season. This isn't a little number either. Montreal hasn't won four straight games since 2014.
I'm not sold that the Alouettes can cover a touchdown. They are off a bye. But I don't see that as a good thing. It can slow their momentum.
It's a big plus for the Redblacks if they get starting quarterback Dominque Davis back for this game. I think Davis plays. But if he doesn't, I like Ottawa at this price anyways. Backup QB Jonathon Jennings was a lot better in his second start completing 15 of 18 passes and the Redblacks defense has looked better.
Ottawa has covered 70 percent of its past 37 road games and is 6-0 ATS the past six times playing at Montreal.
