Head-to-Head: Edmonton Elks at Hamilton Tiger-Cats

It's been a long season for the Elks, who held a 15-0 lead last week at home over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers before backsliding into a 38-29 loss.

The Elks still allowed Winnipeg to pull off the second-largest comeback in their franchise history despite Zach Collaros – Winnipeg starting quarterback and reigning CFL Most Outstanding Player – leaving the game early with an upper-body injury.

The Tiger-Cats aren't having a fantastic season overall either, but they've arrived at their current 3-5 record after a 3-2 run to offset a rough 0-3 start. Their recent wins include a 37-29 victory over Edmonton back in Week 6.

The earlier matchup between these two teams was fully controlled by Hamilton, with the Tiger-Cats up 34-13 at the end of the third quarter before allowing the Elks a handful of scoring plays to make the gap appear less striking.

Taylor Cornelius threw a touchdown and two interceptions for the Elks before being benched in the third quarter for Jarret Doege. The Tiger-Cats leaned hard on James Butler, who kept the game in Hamilton's corner with 127 yards and a touchdown on 14 rushing attempts.

Betting Tips for Edmonton Elks vs Hamilton Tiger-Cats

The Edmonton Elks have a 3-6 record ATS this season, covering in alternating games over the past five weeks.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cates are similar, with a 3-2 record ATS through their last five games and no prior ATS wins this season. In their last matchup – a 37-29 victory for the Tiger-Cats that wasn't nearly as close throughout the game – the Elks scored 16 points in the fourth quarter but still fell short of covering the nine-point spread against them.

The total is a wildcard – while the over is only 3-6 in Edmonton games this season and 3-5 in Hamilton games, it covered by over 20 points in all but one instance where it won. This includes the earlier Edmonton-Hamilton matchup, where the teams combined to score 66 points and blow out the 42.5 total line.

Expert Predictions: Who Will Win?

As far as an outright victory, most experts figure the Tiger-Cats will stay the course and avoid falling to an Elks team that has lost each of their games thus far for a reason.

Picks for the spread and total are more contentious but we suggest rolling with the Tiger-Cats ATS and backing the over.
