Toronto Argonauts vs Montreal Alouettes prediction & odds

Kick-off: 1930 EDT, 16/06/2022

Stadium: BMO Field

TV: TSN/RDS/ESPN2

Toronto are the early favourites to top the East Division table but Montreal will have the benefit of a previous outing this term at BMO Field.

The Alouettes pushed Calgary close in the opening round of fixtures and are expected to be competitive again versus the potentially rusty Argonauts.

We like 1.91 for the visitors with 3.5 points start on the spread in our first Toronto Argonauts vs Montreal Alouettes prediction.

Toronto Argonauts Odds

Toronto ruled in the East last term thanks to a 9-5 record but only due to a happy knack of shading tight tussles.

They were 7-0 in games decided by fewer than four points, with four of those narrow victories coming on home turf.

The Argonauts were then a touch unlucky to come up against a red-hot Hamilton outfit when going down 27-19 in the playoffs.

General manager Michael Clemons has been busy during the off-season, with valiant veterans Brandon Banks and Andrew Harris brought in to bolster the offence.

Two warm-up matches went right down to the wire, with Hamilton edged out 18-17 after a 23-17 loss at Ottawa.

We’re sticking with the concern that Toronto could be caught cold after the Week 1 bye, though.

Looking at the 2.5 for an away win on the money line is tempting.

Montreal Alouettes Odds

Montreal fell behind early on when visiting Calgary, who capitalised on an interception to score the opening touchdown of the 2022 season.

However, Vernon Adams kept his composure and recovered to steer the Alouettes to a 24-14 half-time lead.

Unfortunately, turnovers and a blocked field goal hurt Montreal after the interval and they slipped to a 30-27 defeat following a deciding kick with 33 seconds on the clock.

Even so, that was an encouraging effort, with Adams teaming up well with wide receiver Geno Lewis – if he can just cut out the costly errors.

Losing William Stanback to injury was a blow, but second-string running back Jeshrun Antwi stepped up to the plate in fine style.

Head coach Khari Jones has an attack-minded attitude and 1.91 for over 49.5 total points in this game is added to our Toronto Argonauts vs Montreal Alouettes betting tips.
