Defensively, Saskatchewan is allowing 21.4 points and 323.2 yards per game. Solomon Elimimian leads the Saskatchewan Roughriders with 65 tackles, Charleston Hughes has 15 sacks and Loucheiz Purifoy has three interceptions.
The Calgary Stampeders look for another win after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Calgary Stampeders have won five of their last six home games. Bo Levi Mitchell is completing 65.4 percent of his passes for 2,196 yards, nine touchdowns and eight interceptions. Nick Arbuckle and Levi Mitchell have combined 20 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Reggie Begelton and Eric Rogers have combined for 2,013 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns while Markeith Ambles has 35 receptions.

Defensively, Calgary is allowing 21.5 points and 350.5 yards per game. Cory Greenwood leads the Calgary Stampeders with 78 tackles, Cordarro Law has nine sacks and Tre Roberson has seven interceptions.
The Roughriders are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Friday games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Stampeders are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games, 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. West and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 Friday games. The Roughriders are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Stampeders last 5 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Roughriders last 4 Friday games.
The Calgary Stampeders have won seven of the last 10 meetings against the Saskatchewan Roughriders, and that includes a 27-point victory earlier this year when the Stampeders didn't have their starting quarterback. Calgary is also one of those teams that usually bounces back in a big way following a loss, and they're due for a breakout performance at home after some recent struggles. I'll side with history in this contest and take the reasonable chalk with the Calgary Stampeders at home.
