Winnipeg was predicted to be the best team in the CFL, and they may be, but last week’s home loss to the BC Lions has some doubting this team. The Als sit undefeated at 2-0, but the level of competition must be questioned.
In their previous game against the Tiger-Cats, the Alouettes won with a final score of 38-12. William Stanback led his team in rushing with 69 yards on 9 carries for a 7.7 average per run – breaking one long run of 40 yards but failing to convert any touchdown runs en route to an impressive average of 7.7 average run yards per carry! Kaion Julien-Grant led in receiving yards with an impressive total of 94 on six receptions at 15.7 average catch distance per catch, while Cody Fajardo went 19/25 with 292 yards passing for two touchdowns without incurring any interceptions.
So far in 2023, the Montreal Alouettes have passed for 472 yards via pass with an average of 236.0 per contest, placing them sixth in the CFL. Furthermore, their 309.5 yards per game average puts them 7th overall, while they average 73.5 rushing yards per contest and have totalled 147 total rushing yards for 2017. When it comes to scoring per matchup they currently sit third overall with 28.5 points scored per matchup.
The Montreal Alouettes rank 2nd in CFL when it comes to allowing 12.0 PPG per game and 24 total points given up over the season. They have given up 46.5 yards per outing on average (and zero touchdowns through ground play this year) and no touchdowns through airplay despite 250.5 average yards/contest allowing. This ranks them 4th overall among league opponents.
Last time out, the Blue Bombers played against the Lions and were soundly defeated 30-6. Zach Collaros went 15/26 with 191 yards through the air but failed to score a passing TD; he also threw one pick. Brady Oliveira led his team in rushing with an 11-yard long run but never crossed into the endzone during that rush; overall, he managed 52 yards via ten carries with an average of 5.2 yards per carry; Carlton Agudosi led them in receiving yards with 61 on five receptions with 12.2 average receiving yardage per reception average per game;
Winnipeg Blue Bombers average 31.0 points per game when it comes to getting into the endzone, ranking fourth in CFL with an average ground yardage total of 111.0 per game, earning 1,119 total yards on offense and 4 passing touchdowns and 5 rushing touchdowns this season.
The Blue Bombers rank 8th in the CFL regarding opponent scoring, permitting 29.3 points per game from opposing teams and 70.3 rushing yards per game over this season. Opposing teams averaged an average 5.0 yards per rushing attempt for 70.3 total rushing yards per game this year against them; 3 games saw them concede 211 yards through ground play and 786 via passes – good enough to place them 8th overall while they allowed 262.0 yards per contest with an impressive completion percentage of 63%! Finally, this campaign sees them conceding 332.3 yards per contest, which puts them 4th overall!
The points make this a tough game to pick. I am betting Winnipeg bounces back, and with that, I am also predicting that the BC Lions are the best team in the CFL at this moment! Take the Bombers to bounce back big.
