Montreal Alouettes vs Edmonton Eskimos Predictions & Betting Odds - CFL Picks
November 10, 2019
The Grey Cup Eastern semi-final sees the Montreal Alouettes (10-8) playing host to the Edmonton Eskimos (8-10) at the Percival Molson Stadium in the on Sunday, with the tournament favourites – Hamilton Tiger-Cats – awaiting the winners in the Eastern final.
With Edmonton crossing over from the West Division, this will be the fourth consecutive season that the Eastern semi-final will feature a cross-division matchup. It will also be the first time since 2014 that Montreal is hosting a playoff game.
Vernon Adams Jr. has been instrumental in the Als’ success this season, becoming one of the most exciting young quarterbacks in the CFL. However, Edmonton QB Trevor Harris is back in action after barely figuring in the last two months due to an upper body injury.
The Alouettes and Eskimos won one game apiece when they faced each other during the regular season. Edmonton won 32-25 at home in the opening round of the season, but Montreal avenging that loss with a 20-10 win as hosts in Week 6. The Alouettes hadn’t beaten the Eskimos since 2014 prior to that win in July.

This looks a tight game for CFL betting tips but, despite Montreal Alouettes having home-field advantage, the return of Harris could give Edmonton Eskimos the edge providing he can shake off any rust after a period of inactivity. With the Als’ defensive line being ranked last in the league in takedowns, Harris and the Eskimos could prosper.
