Defensively, Calgary is allowing 21.5 points and 354.5 yards per game. Cory Greenwood leads the Calgary Stampeders with 78 tackles, Cordarro Law has eight sacks and Tre Roberson has seven interceptions.
The Montreal Alouettes need a statement victory after splitting their last eight games. The Montreal Alouettes have won their last three home games. Vernon Adams is completing 65 percent of his passes for 2,953 yards, 15 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Adams has 10 touchdowns and five interceptions in his last five games. Geno Lewis and DeVier Posey have combined for 1,463 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Quan Bray has 42 receptions. The Montreal Alouettes ground game is averaging 130.4 yards per contest, and William Stanback leads the way with 895 yards and five touchdowns.

The Stampeders are 18-7-3 ATS in their last 28 games following a bye week, 4-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 0-8 ATS in their last 8 games in October. The Alouettes are 22-6 ATS in their last 28 Saturday games, 6-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 13-5 ATS in their last 18 games overall. The Stampeders are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Montreal and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 meetings. The under is 8-3 in Stampeders last 11 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Alouettes last 7 Saturday games.
The Calgary Stampeders are a different team with Levi Mitchell at quarterback, as they've won four straight games and have won their last three games by an average of eight points. The Montreal Alouettes have been a hit or miss team all year and have a defense opponents can move the ball against with some consistency. While the Alouettes have played their best ball at home for the most part, it's tough to turn down small chalk with the Stampeders, as we don't get numbers like this with them very often. Take advantage of it while you can.
