It’s East meets West on Friday night as the Calgary Stampeders travel to Ottawa to face the Redblacks.  Calgary dropped to third in the West Division following a thrilling 35-28 home loss against the undefeated Winnipeg Blue Bombers last week.  Ottawa, on the other hand, is coming off their first win of the season, a 23-13 decision in Toronto against the Argos.

The Stampeders are 6-point favourites to win on the CFL odds, with a total of 50.0.

CFL Odds and Betting

Calgary has dominated this head-to-head series in recent years, winning eight of the last 10 meetings.  The lone meeting last season ended in a 26-13 road victory for the Stamps.

Calgary has been a solid road performer, winning six of their last eight games away from McMahon Stadium.  They haven’t been a great overall cover option, however, as they’re 2-4 against the spread in 2022.  The Stamps have hit the Over in five of six total games this season.

Ottawa is winless in five straight home games, including all three this season.  They’re 3-4 ATS overall this year and 1-5 ATS in their last six home games dating back to last season.  The total has gone Under in four of the Redblacks’ seven total games this year.

Calgary Stampeders

It was a back-and-forth shootout in Calgary last week as the Stampeders held four separate leads over Winnipeg, but couldn’t hold on at the end.  Quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell completed 21 of 32 pass attempts for 219 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions.  Running back Ka’Deem Carey rushed for 92 yards and two scores, while receiver Reggie Begellton added 74 yards in the air on five catches.  Rene Paredes kicked five field goals, including a career-long 53-yarder.

Adding insult to injury, last week was Calgary’s second straight loss to Winnipeg after dropping a 26-19 road decision in Week 6.  The Stamps had a bye week to prepare for the rematch and still failed to get the job done.  Another setback in last week’s defeat was the loss of defensive back Tre Roberson and starting centre Sean McEwen, who both went down late in the game.  Roberson is dealing with a knee injury, while McEwen has an ankle injury.  Both are expected to miss Friday’s game.

Ottawa RedBlacks

It took seven games, but Ottawa earned their first win of the season in a surprise victory over the East-leading Toronto Argonauts last week.  Caleb Evans completed 24 of 29 pass attempts for 286 yards and two touchdowns.  Jaelon Acklin had a monster performance, racking up 144 receiving yards and a touchdown on seven catches.  Acklin now leads the CFL with 687 receiving yards on the season and has hit the 100-yard receiving mark in three consecutive games.  Nate Behar hauled in the Redblacks’ other touchdown against the Argos.

With Jeremiah Masoli expected to remain out of the lineup well into September, Evans will continue to lead the team under centre.  In three starts this season, Evans has thrown for 786 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions.
