Ottawa Redblacks at Montreal Alouettes Preview & Picks

Unbeaten Montreal are tipped to cover as they win their home opener.

The Alouettes have made a solid start to their defence of the Grey Cup and they have been a reliable spread bet dating back to last season.

  • Montreal Alouettes are 2-0 so far this season
  • Montreal Alouettes are 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games
  • Ottawa Redblacks are 1-4-0 ATS in their last 5 games
  • The Under has cashed in both of Montreal’s first 2 games

Head To Head

  • Montreal Alouettes lead the series 17-15 since 2014
  • Montreal Alouettes won 29-3 when the two teams last met in October 2023

Ottawa Redblacks Form

Ottawa go into their first road game of the season looking to build on a surprise season-opening win.

The Redblacks started their season in Week 2 and recorded a shock 23-19 victory over a Winnipeg team that lost last season’s Grey Cup.

It was a dream first outing for a team desperately to improve on a 2023 season that saw them win just four of their 18 games.

Ottawa made a decent start as they won three of their first six games, but their form soon nose-dived.

The Redblacks lost 11 of their final 12 games of the regular season, so they will be hoping last week’s win is the first step towards a much better 2024 campaign.

Montreal Alouettes Form

Montreal enter their home opener looking to build on a strong start to their defence of the Grey Cup.

The Alouettes, who upset Winnipeg in last year’s final, have opened with back-to-back games on the road, winning both of those matchups.

They kicked things off with a rematch of last season’s Grey Cup final, visiting Winnipeg for the seaso-opener.

Montreal were able to repeat last year’s title-sealing victory, although this 27-12 success was a lot less dramatic.

The Alouettes then backed up that victory last weekend, travelling to Edmonton to record a 23-20 victory over the Elks.

Verdict

Ottawa sent shockwaves through the CFL last week, but we expect them to get a reality check here.

Montreal are off to a successful start and they have been the league’s most reliable spread bet dating back to the latter stages of the 2023 regular season.
