Argos and Cats Look for Better 2017 Seasons

The fans at BMO Field will see the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Toronto Argonauts when they take their seats on Sunday. The QEW rivals look to atone for disappointing 2016 CFL seasons.

The Tiger-Cats fell in the Eastern Semi-Finals, while the Argos failed to secure a playoff spot following a disappointing last-place finish.

Oddsmakers opened the Tiger-Cats as 3.5-point favorites and the total at 53. The line has held at 3.5, but the total has been bet up to 55.


A healthy Zach Collaros will be a huge part of a successful Tiger-Cats season. The Cincinnati Bearcat product spent half of last year on the sidelines with a torn ACL he suffered during the 2015 season. He is completely healed. Callaros has a full training camp under his belt and the five-year pro will be expected to be the leader in Hamilton.

No team in the CFL has gone through more off-season changes than the Toronto Argonauts. Jim Popp took over as the general manager after two decades in Montreal. And Popp brought a friend in former Alouettes Grey Cup-winning coach Marc Trestman. Trestman will lead the charge on the sidelines after Scott Milanovich moved on to the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars as quarterback coach.

The Argos’ offence will once again be led by veteran quarterback Ricky Ray. The 37-year-old and future hall of famer is entering his 14th CFL season and ranks fourth all-time in passing yards. He has an all new receiving corp that is led by S.J. Green and newly acquired Armanti Edwards.
