Ottawa Redblacks vs Montreal Alouettes prediction & odds

Kick-off: 1900 EDT, 21/07/2022

Stadium: TD Place


Montreal will still be smarting from blowing a big lead against Edmonton last weekend and Ottawa could feel the backlash at TD Place.

The Redblacks showed signs of improvement in a narrow defeat at Hamilton but remain without a win this term and a short turnaround won’t help here.

We’re taking 1.87 for the visitors to prevail by more than 2.5 points on the spread for our first Ottawa Redblacks vs Montreal Alouettes prediction.

Ottawa Redblacks Odds

Ottawa pushed the previously winless Tiger-Cats hard at Tim Horton’s Field but missed a late 54-yard field goal attempt to go down 25-23.

The Redblacks brought in quarterback Nick Arbuckle from Edmonton earlier this month and will be keen to get him up to speed.

General Manager Shawn Burke said: “He’s an experienced player in our league and we look forward to having him on our side.”

However, Caleb Evans fared pretty well on his first start of 2022 versus Hamilton, so how much of an upgrade Arbuckle will be is open to debate.

Finding targets with the speed to get open has been the big problem, with just 96 points scored in five straight defeats.

Playing conditions should be perfect for this game, though, and only two teams have conceded more than Montreal.

That makes 1.91 for over 47.5 total points stand out from the Ottawa Redblacks vs Montreal Alouettes odds.

Montreal Alouettes Odds

Montreal slipped to 1-4 for the season in agonising fashion against the Elks, leading 31-12 midway through the third quarter but then giving up 20 unanswered points to lose by one.

Everything went against the Alouettes late on that night, with three pass interference penalties on defensive back Wesley Sutton all leading to touchdowns.

Edmonton also made the most of two interceptions and a fumble recovery, as Montreal self-imploded.

However, there was a lot to like about how the Alouettes built up their big advantage under recently-returned QB coach Anthony Calvillo.

He told the Montreal Gazette: “There were some things we wanted to focus on – notably scoring touchdowns in the red zone.

“There were a lot of positive things overall, especially with the (coaching) changes that occurred and the motions we added to the offence.

“I was happy with that, but disappointed with the turnovers.”

The Als have also lost narrowly at Calgary and Toronto this term, prior to swapping emphatic wins with Saskatchewan, so the table could have easily looked a lot healthier.

We’re keen to keep the faith for now and 4.1 for an away win by 1-6 points is added to our Ottawa Redblacks vs Montreal Alouettes betting tips.
