Eskimos Look to Avoid Letdown Against Hamiltion

The winless Hamilton Tiger-Cats go on the road to face the Edmonton Eskimos on Friday at Commonwealth Stadium. The Eskimos seem to have the Tiger-Cats number. The game will be televised on ESPM at 9:30 pm EST.

The Edmonton cut the Ticats’ season short last year. They beat them in Eastern Semi-Final. Edmonton also slammed the door shut on the Ticats two weeks ago.  Hamilton was primed for their first win of the season. Edmonton scored the go-ahead touchdown with less than a minute left. They beat the Tabbies 31-28.

Oddsmakers have put the Eskimos as 10-point favorites. The total is sitting at 56.

Eskimos Have Been Humming Right Along on Offense

The Eskimos were a 37-26 winner in their most recent outing at home against the BC Lions. They covered the -2.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score (63) made winners of OVER bettors.

The Eskimos have been unstoppable through five games. QB Mike Reilly threw for an impressive 412 yards with two touchdowns. He had two rushing TD’s as well. Three Eskimo receivers posted over 100 yards. Vidal Hazelton led the offense with 159 yards and a TD. That included a Sportscenter worthy 108-yard touchdown reception. It set a new franchise record for longest completed pass.

The injuries are continuing to pile up for the Eskimos as well. Eight new players found themselves on the injured list following the win to BC. That brings the total of wounded players to 18. Fifteen of those players have started this year. Two of the most noticeable names to join the walking wounded is running back Travon Van and Dynamic receiver D’haquille ‘Duke’ Williams.

Hamilton Looks to Rebound From Shellacking

Hamilton was a 60-1 loser in its last game on the road against the Calgary Stampeders. They failed to cover the +12.5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 61 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.  Quarterback Zach Collaros managed only 102 yards with an interception last week. He was replaced by Jeremiah Masoli. Luke Tasker posted a team-high 82 yards on nine catches in the loss.

The Hamilton defense was awful in Week 6. They gave up three touchdown runs by Jerome Messam and 496 yards as a unit.

Linebacker Simoni Lawrence will be back in the lineup after missing last week with a nagging lower body injury. That is the only good news the Tiger-Cats received on the injury front this week. Defensive end Adrian Tracy was placed on the one-game injured list. All-Star defensive back Abdul Kanneh has suffered another setback. He is on the six-game injured list just a week after making his debut.
