The Calgary Stampeders have seized top spot in the CFL’s West Division – but that ascension be a short one as they face the Alouettes in Montreal on Saturday afternoon.

The Stampeders have won four consecutive games to sit tied with the Saskatchewan Roughriders atop the division, a half-game ahead of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. But Calgary’s mediocre road performance could hurt it against an Alouettes team that has gone 4-2 at home in 2019.

CFL Odds and Betting

The line for Saturday’s pivotal encounter has only moved slightly after opening at Montreal +2. And that’s news to Alouettes bettors’ ears, with Montreal having gone a red-hot 12-5 ATS in their previous 17 games and 6-1 ATS in their last seven against teams with winning records. Calgary has gone an impressive 18-7-3 against the spread in its last 28 games coming off a bye, but has covered just once in its previous 10 meetings with Montreal.

The total for this one is set at 51, and there should be plenty of action on the under given the prevailing trends. Calgary has finished under the number in seven of its last nine road games overall, and eight of its past 10 against teams above .500. And these teams have played their share of low-scoring affairs, having converted the under in five of their last six meetings (though they combined to score 74 points in their previous head-to-head Aug. 17 in Calgary.)

Calgary Stampeders

If the Stampeders are going to get their revenge following that wild 40-34 overtime loss in mid- August, it’ll have to come without the services of one of their top wide receiver threats.

Markeith Ambles will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery on his ankle; the second-year wideout was enjoying a strong season with 35 catches for 407 yards. He joins No. 1 running back Ka’Deem Carey (broken arm, out for season) on the sidelines.

Montreal Alouettes

While the Stampeders deal with key losses on offence, the Alouettes will happily welcome back their star quarterback this weekend. Vernon Adams Jr. will return to action after serving a one-

game suspension for swinging a helmet at Blue Bombers linebacker Adam Bighill last month. Adams’ return is a significant one for the Alouettes after he racked up 407 passing yards while accounting for three touchdowns in that earlier win over the Stampeders.
