Redblacks and Alouettes Battle Wednesday

Redblacks CFL Football

Redblacks Looking for 1st Win

The Montreal Alouettes and the Ottawa RedBlacks will both be gunning for a victory on Wednesday. The two teams will meet in the nation’s capital with plenty on the line in a rare Wednesday night duel. The Kickoff for the game is set for 7:30 PM at TD Place Stadium.

The 2017 CFL season saw the Ottawa Redblacks as favorites to win the East Division. The Montreal Alouettes’ myriad personnel changes had people thinking fof low expectations in their first year under new GM Kavis Reed.

Heading into Week 5 and the Als are tied for the division lead at a respectable 2-2. The Redblacks search for their first win of the 2017 season.

Oddsmakers have listed the Redblacks as 4-point favorites. The total is sitting at 50.

Last time out for Ottawa, they were a 23-21 loser as they battled the Edmonton Eskimos on the road. The RedBlacks covered in the match as a +3-point underdog, while 44 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors. Four close games for Rick Campbell’s football team has produced one tie and three losses. The Redblacks have been close to victory at various points in all four games. The team hasn’t been able to to get over the hump for their first win of 2017.

In the middle of an 11-day, three-game stretch, the Redblacks are struggling on defense.  Ottawa’s two leading tacklers, Nick Taylor (28) and Khalil Bass (21), are on the injured list. Taylor on the six-game list, and inexperienced Serderius Bryant and Adam Berger will slide into the lineup.  Antoine Pruneau will drop down into a linebacker spot along with Bryant. Berger will take over duties at safety.

Alouettes Look to Keep Offense Rolling Despite Injuries

Montreal won its last outing, a 30-23 result against the Calgary Stampeders on July 14. The Alouettes covered in that game as a +4-point underdog, while the 53 combined points took the game OVER the total. The Alouettes made a statement with Saturday’s win over the heavily-favored Stampeders.

Jacques Chapdelaine’s squad may have to find a way to keep the offense rolling without star running back Tyrell Sutton. He has a CFL-best 295 rush yards. Didier Orméjuste of RDS reports that Sutton will not play in Week 5.  Brandon Rutley will get his first start since 2016 in the Montreal backfield. He could be poised for a breakout game. The San Jose State alum rushed for nearly 500 yards last season. He has averaged just shy of five yards per carry in his four-year CFL career.
