Hamilton Tiger Cats vs Toronto Argonauts prediction & odds

Kick-off: 1930 EDT, 12/08/2022

Stadium: Tim Hortons Field


Hamilton shot themselves in the foot when going down 34-20 at Toronto last week but are backed to make amends in this quick rematch on home turf.

The Tiger Cats blew a 13-point lead in that contest, with a blocked punt and an interception both returned for touchdowns in the fourth quarter.

We’re hoping Orlando Steinauer’s side can cut out the costly errors and 1.91 for them to win by more than 2.5 points is our first Hamilton Tiger Cats vs Toronto Argonauts prediction.

Hamilton Tiger Cats Odds

Turnovers have hurt Hamilton all season and a deficit of 15 in that department has played a big part in them falling to 2-6.

Injuries haven’t helped either, with Steinauer commenting: “Yep, we’ve been bit by it quite hard.”

Quarterback Dane Evans is the latest doubt but Matt Shiltz has featured regularly enough during games this season to step up if required.

Cutting back on the playbook options to accommodate Shiltz might actually be a blessing in disguise if it leads to fewer mistakes.

Hamilton are 2-2 at this venue but have been competitive in every game and are chasing a hat-trick of wins here.

Last month, they edged out Ottawa 25-23 and then accounted for Montreal 24-17.

Looking at the Hamilton Tiger Cats vs Toronto Argonauts odds, we like 5.0 for a home victory by 7-12 points.

Toronto Argonauts Odds

Toronto quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson deserves plenty of credit for his resilience in last week’s success.

He completed 17 of his 27 passes for 230 yards and a touchdown despite being put under plenty of pressure.

The ultra-consistent Cam Phillips and fellow receiver DaVaris Daniels each reeled in four catches.

However, the Argonauts received a big helping hand from their defence at the business end of that contest.

Linebacker Trevor Hoyte blocked the punt to set up a go-ahead score and told the club website: “They had run the same play before.

“The next time they called it, I knew exactly what he was going to do. I just jumped inside. I was there way faster than I thought and I got to the ball.”

Toronto are two wins clear in the East Division at 4-3 but only one of those victories has come on the road and they were soundly beaten by the BC Lions in the other away match.

We reckon 2.0 for their hosts to reach 20 points first here is worth adding to our Hamilton Tiger Cats vs Toronto Argonauts betting tips.
