Argonauts vs Alouettes Betting Odds

Published on November 15th, 2012 2:28 am EST
The 9-9 Toronto Argonauts will travel to Montreal to do battle against the 11-7 Montreal Alouettes in this weekend's Eastern Final. The winner will move on to do battle against the winner of BC/Calgary, while the loser will go home.

The Alouettes earned a berth in the Eastern Final by finishing with the East's best record. The Argonauts, on the other hand, earned their spot in the Eastern Final by defeating the Edmonton Eskimos last weekend.

The Argonauts desperately want to win this game as Toronto is hosting the Grey Cup. They will face a tough task, however, as Anthony Calvillo and the Alouettes have been virtually unbeatable at home in the playoffs over the past decade or so.

Toronto will be looking to ride the hot hand of Ricky Ray. Ray finished the regular season with over 4,000 yards passing and a 20/11 TD/Interception ratio. Ray had a big game last week over his former team, the Edmonton Eskimos.

Anthony Calvillo, on the other hand, had an even better year than Ray, passing for over 5,000 yards with a TD/Int ratio of 31/14. Calvillo has a number of favourite targets, including the likes of S.J. Green, Jamel Richardson and Brandon London. Combine that with the versatile Brandon Whitaker and Toronto will have its hands full.

Here are the odds for the Argonauts/Alouettes as of this moment:

Toronto Argonauts, +5.0, -110
Montreal Alouettes, -5.0, -110

Over/Under Line, 55.0
