The Stamps are looking to get back in the win column after dropping a tight 31-29 decision in Winnipeg last week.  Edmonton’s home woes continued last week with a 25-18 loss to Ottawa.

Calgary is a heavy 12.5-point favourite to win on the CFL odds, with a total of 49.5.

CFL Odds and Betting

This is the third of four regular season meetings between the teams this season.  The Stampeders won both previous games, 30-23 at home in Week 3 and 49-6 in Edmonton in Week 5.  The season series closes out next week in Edmonton.

The Elks have struggled against Calgary, dropping six of the last seven games against the Stamps overall and seven of the last eight in Calgary.  They’re 4-2 against the spread on the road this season compared to 0-5 ATS at home.  Edmonton has hit the Over in five of six road games in 2022.

It’s been an up-and-down season for the Stampeders who have produced an even 2-2 record at home.  They’re 5-5 ATS overall, but they’ve failed to cover the spread in any of their home games.  The Stampeders have, however, hit the Over in all four of their home games.

Edmonton Elks

Edmonton’s home woes continued last week and to make matters worse, they were burned by their former quarterback.  Nick Arbuckle, who was 0-3 as the Elks starter before being traded to Ottawa earlier this season, won his first start for the Redblacks against his former team.  Edmonton has now lost 13 consecutive games at Commonwealth Stadium, dating back to October 2019.  Taylor Cornelius struggled under centre, completing just 14 of 37 pass attempts for 287 yards and an interception, although he did run in two touchdowns.  Kenny Lawler led the receiving core with 146 yards on three catches.

It wasn’t all good news concerning Lawler, however, as the Elks announced the 28-year-old will miss at least two weeks with an ankle injury and could be added to the six-game injured list.  This is Lawler’s first season in Edmonton after winning back-to-back Grey Cup championships with Winnipeg in 2019 and 2021.  Lawler is tied for second in the CFL in receiving yards (849) and is tied for fourth in touchdowns (5).

Calgary Stampeders

Calgary shook things up at quarterback last week, starting second-year pivot Jake Maier over a healthy Bo Levi Mitchell.  After an incomplete pass to start the game, Maier completed 15 straight passes and finished the first half 15-of-16 for 194 yards and two touchdowns.  He was 23-of-28 for 294 yards and three touchdowns in the game.  All three touchdown passes landed in Malik Henry’s hands, who finished with 122 receiving yards on seven catches.

The Stampeders are hoping to have some reinforcements this week as  linebacker Jameer Thurman, offensive lineman Julian Good-Jones and defensive back Branden Dozier all came off the six-game injured list, although it’s unclear if they will play.  One internal battle to watch is clearly at quarterback as it looks like Maier has fully wrestled the starting job away from Mitchell.  But with Mitchell healthy, the question is how long of leash will Maier have if things start to go south?
