On Thursday night at IG Field, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (8-2) host the Montreal Alouettes (6-3). Winnipeg opens this matchup as 8-point favorites while O/U has been set at 47.5; starting quarterbacks for both teams are Cody Fajardo and Zach Collaros.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers rank second in the Canadian Football League (CFL) when it comes to scoring points, averaging 29.7 PPG this year and totalling 2,703 passing yards so far with 270.3 average passing yards per game, good enough for second in league play.

A healthy Zach Collaros makes me believe that the Bombers can cover this large spread of eight points.
