Hamilton Tiger-Cats (5-5) travel across the country today to take on the B.C. Lions (3-7) at 10PM tonight. This isn’t a must-win game for either team, but it’s a game that will play an important role in deciding the playoffs this season. Both teams are battling right now for a spot in the playoffs and are in vital need of a victory to maintain ground with the top teams. The Lions definitely have the momentum right now after winning the past two games and also have the home field advantage.

B.C.’s offence has woken up in the later part of the season, but it might be a little too late. Printers played great last week in a 37-16 stomping of the Argonauts. Casey also looked good against the Alouettes in week 10 after coming back from an injury and it has helped the struggling Lions move back into the playoff picture. If it weren’t for Printers, the Lions would still be in bad shape due to an almost non-existent running game.

Hamilton lost last week 27-6 against Montreal and Glenn played his worst game of the season. He only completed 11 of 27 passes for 159 yards with 0 TD’s and 1 INT. Hamilton could definitely win tonight, but Glenn is going to need to do a lot better. When Glenn doesn’t perform well, the Tiger-Cats typically lose the game. The defence hasn’t been able to shutdown teams for most of the season and there is no doubt that the Lions have the advantage on the defensive side of the ball.

The last meeting between these two teams was last season and Hamilton managed to walk away with the win. Cobb had a great game with 100 rushing yards and 75 passing yards and the Ti-Cats are hoping for more of the same this week. Cobb hasn’t done that well this season and it’d be a great confidence booster if he had a big game tonight against the Lions.

Betting Lines

Hamilton Tiger-Cats vs. B.C. Lions –3.5
Hamilton Tiger-Cats vs. B.C. Lions O/U 49.5

Betting Predictions

The Lions are coming into the game with a 2-5 ATS record in their last 7 while Hamilton has a 4-1 ATS record in their past 5. I like that the spread is set at –3.5 and I’d jump on it now before it drops. I think that Hamilton will come into B.C. and play a lot better then they did last week against the Alouettes. They know that this is an important game and I can’t see them coming into the game unfocused and unmotivated.

Hamilton is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 against a team with a losing record, which proves to me that they win games against the teams they should beat. Moving below .500 at this point in the season is never good and although they’d still be in good shape, I can’t see them losing this game let alone by 4 points. The over/under has been set low at 49.5 points, but that is because there is a good reason behind the bookies logic.

Both of these teams play a lot of low scoring game against each other and tonight should be the same. In the last 12 games between these two teams the under is 9-3 and it’s an even better 4-1 when playing in BC. Hamilton has also gone under 4 out of the past 5 games that they’ve played. Glenn might explode for a huge game tonight, but the Lions defence are far from slouches and I expect them to keep the game tight.
