What’s Going On?

Saturday’s early CFL is a matchup of teams tied for second place in the East Division. The league’s playoff structure allows the fourth-place team of one division to hop over the third-place team in the other if they have a better record. This is like a playoff game halfway through the season. That might not even be the best part of this game because BetMGM is offering their VIBONUS and, if you’re a US resident, it’s a Risk-FREE play of up to $1,000.

Open your new BetMGM account using the bonus code VIBONUS and you’re getting a Risk-FREE play of up to a g-note. The 3-6 (3-6 ATS) Hamilton Tiger-Cats head to Montreal to face the 3-6 (5-4 ATS) Alouettes. The home team is a slight 1 ½ point favorite and -125 on the money line. The visitors are +105 straight up and the total is set at 48 ½.

Why Should You Care?

Playing a game, any game, for $1,000 knowing that even if you lose, you’re getting that much back in free play wagers removes all that’s bad in sports betting. Think about how many times you yell at the players, the coaches, and the referees, not necessarily in that order, when you have money on a game, never mind when it’s a grand.

Betting on the CFL has gone well this year, but that’s the point of all the effort. This is an “up to” bonus from BetMGM so, of course, you don’t have to bet that much but that’s the most they’ll cover. Hit some of these games from north of the border using the VIBONUS and cash out for fifty percent. There is nothing wrong with that!  

Is Hamilton Getting Another Shot At The Grey Cup?

The Tiger-Cats are a mirror image of their host in more ways than just the records. Hamilton is averaging 20 points a game with a mediocre 85 yards a contest running game. They have scored 78 points in their last three, but when they’re not at home this year they’re averaging less than 15 points a game. Most of the visitors’ stats are right in the middle of the column but they have more interceptions than touchdown passes.  

Hamilton’s defence does have some parts of their game that have statistics near the top of the league. They allow opponents a less than 65% completion rate and just 4.5 yards a rushing attempt but aren’t playing well away from home. In four games they’ve allowed 107 points.  

Will Montreal Make It Into The CFL Playoffs Again This Season?

Quite a few of those losses were close ones as you can see by the ATS record. They’re always in the game. That might be because they run the ball pretty well with over five yards a carry and 11 rushing touchdowns. It’s the third week in a row that they’ve scored fewer points than the previous game. They haven’t topped 20 since mid-July.

On the other side of the ball, they have allowed more points than the previous for the third straight game. They played the Blue Bombers stout but before that were a sieve. In their last two at home, they’ve allowed 67 points. Opponents are averaging over five yards a carry and have scored 14 rushing touchdowns.

A CFL Matchup That’s A Perfect Fit For The BetMGM Risk-FREE Bet!

These two teams really are equal on paper and the line shows that. A hook under that normal home field advantage number. Hamilton is consistent on the scoreboard and has been getting 24 points more than not unless they’re on the road. In the last three at home, the Als didn’t score much. The hardest games to watch are the ones where you have a play on the under because these teams can score so fast.

That is why playing this under is a great spot to open a BetMGM account using the VIBONUS promo code and the $1,000 Risk-FREE wager. At the beginning of the game an under can be stressful, but the longer it goes those bets can turn into the easiest of winners.
