Hamilton Tigercats – B.C Lions Match Prediction | 21-08-2019

Veteran defensive end Odell Willis will also be a player to watch during the Western Semi-Finals as he finished the season ranked near the top of the league in sacks with 11. One of BC's top standouts on the defensive side of the ball has been defensive back Anthony Orange, who in his first year with the team finished the regular season with a league-high five interceptions while also coming up with 54 tackles.

Theyve been way more outstanding I would say the last six or seven games. When you look at that, youve got to say that Mark Washington and his staff, the players are all starting to blend in and understand the system, buy into the system and with the addition of Shawn Lemon and Claudell (Louis), and having Bo (Lokombo) have a big role, I think the defence has evolved and the evolution has caused way more pressure on the quarterback, way more turnovers and thats what you need to usually win football games.- Wally Buono on his defence. You take the Winnipeg (and) Edmonton games out, and that was maybe a bad quarter, theyve pretty much played good defence most of the year. Eleven? I dont know why everybody thinks the defence has (only played well) been the last two games. How many games have we played?

Their defense wasn't able to pick up too many sacks this year or force too many fumbles, but they did end up in the top-half of the league in fewest points allowed. Hamilton had one of the better all-around teams in the CFL during the regular season this year. Their offense finished in the top three in scoring, passing yards, rushing yards, and possession time, but they did struggle a bit with turnovers.

B.C. Lions vs. Hamilton Tiger-CatsPreview

Hamilton has a 27-17 home playoff record, while BC has gone 11-23 in road playoff games. The BC Lions will be taking on the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the Western Semi-Finals on Sunday afternoon in a game that will feature two of the top offensive teams in the CFL. It could end up being a pretty high scoring affair as both teams' defenses ranked near the middle of the league this year. BC was able to defeat the Tiger-Cats 35-32 in their Week 15 matchup, but Hamilton got some revenge in their second meeting with a 40-10 home blowout.

If they can continue to force turnovers at this incredible pace, they will be tough to beat. Its that playoff-type intensity they will need to put on display from here on in, on defence especially. Case in point: an interception by Bo Lokombo on the opening drive of last weeks victory over Montreal that led to the Lions only touchdown of the game; a Jonathon Jennings dart to Bryan Burnham. And these past two games, that execution has been evident from the opening whistle.

It gave us an opportunity to win.- Jennings on how hes approaching his first start since early July. We didnt do a whole lot on offence this past week, but we also didnt try to kill ourselves either. Just that mindset of trying to stay patient. I think thats the biggest thing Ive kind of told myself while Ive been the second string is just (that) when I get my opportunity just be patient, dont force things, try to let the game come to you and I dont need to do too much.

has not been good at applying pressure this season ranking second to last in sacks with just seven. It will not be any easier for him this week, either. But with a relatively inexperienced pivot behind center for Hamilton, they have to try to turn up the heat. B.C. The Lions have been one of the better pass defences this season (fourth with 261.4 yards/game allowed).

Who will it be? However, standing in their way this week will be a Ticats team that will be determined to show they are more than Jeremiah Masoli.But only one can succeed in proving their point this week. But there is a lot of football left. The season hasnt gone how the Lions anticipated it would when the acquired Mike Reilly in the offseason. If they can right the ship, they can climb out of last place in their division and make the playoffs.
