Dating back to October 2019, the Edmonton Elks are riding a horrendous home losing streak of 13 games. Can they change that Saturday against provincial rival Calgary?

Calgary has a chance to sweep the regular season series in the Battle of Alberta when they travel to Edmonton to face the Elks on Saturday.  This will be the second straight meeting between the teams after the Stamps cruised to 26-18 home victory last week.

Calgary is a 10-point favourite to win on the CFL odds, with a total of 50.5.

This caps off the regular season series between the teams as the Stampeders look to win a fourth straight games against the Elks in 2022 and fifth straight dating back to last year.  These teams generally combine for high scoring games, with the total going Over in five of the last six clashes.

Calgary has been a solid road performer, winning eight of their last 11 games outside of McMahon Stadium.  They’re a tale of two teams when it comes to covering this season as they’re 0-5 against the spread at home compared to 5-1 ATS on the road.  The total has gone Over in eight of the Stampeders’ last 12 games.

The Elks would likely rather play anywhere but Commonwealth Stadium at this point as their embarrassing home losing streak, which dates back to October 2019, has climbed to 13 games.  They’re 5-7 ATS this season, but they haven’t covered in any of their five home games.  The total has gone Under in four of Edmonton’s last six games.

Calgary Stampeders

The Stamps used a big third quarter to propel themselves to last week’s win in Edmonton.  Quarterback Jake Maier struggled in the first half, only managing five completions by the break.  Maier eventually settled in and finished the game 18-of-26 passing, for 238 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.  The second-year quarterback won the starter’s role over veteran Bo Levi Mitchell, who has struggled this season, but Maier’s likely on a short leash heading into Week 14.  Ka’Deem Carey rushed for a touchdown, while Reggie Begelton had two receiving TDs.

As far as injuries are concerned, Calgary could be due to get a big boost to the lineup with the possible return of defensive back Branden Dozier.  It was initially thought Dozier might be able to return for last week’s game and although he was ultimately held out, it seems likely he’ll play on Saturday.  Dozier has been limited to just one game this season because of a bizarre string of three separate hamstring injuries, but when he’s healthy, he’s a versatile and valuable player to have in the lineup.

Edmonton Elks

Edmonton took a one-point lead into the half last week, but proceeded to give up 15 points in the third quarter and crumble down the stretch.  Taylor Cornelius was 22-of-33 passing, finishing with 257 yards and two TDs.  Dillon Mitchell and Jalen Marshall each had receiving TDs.  The Elks have now lost two straight games and five of their last six.  They also haven’t won a home game since Oct. 12, 2019,

The Elks received some good injury news this week as rookie Canadian quarterback Tre Ford finished his stint on the six-game injured list and is expected to return to practice, although he won’t play Saturday.  The 24-year-old suffered an AC joint sprain in a Week 5 blowout loss against Calgary.  In five games played (two starts) this season, Ford has 219 passing yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.  Edmonton has gone 2-5 in Ford’s absence.
