The Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Calgary Stampeders meet Saturday in CFL action at McMahon Stadium.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers could use a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have lost each of their last three road games. Matt Nichols is completing 71.3 percent of his passes for 1,936 yards, 15 touchdowns and five interceptions. Nichols and Chris Streveler have combined for 22 touchdown passes and 17 interceptions. Kenny Lawler and Darlin Adams have combined for 1,066 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Nic Demski has 38 receptions. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers ground game is averaging 148.9 yards per contest, and Andrew Harris leads the way with 1,261 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Winnipeg is allowing 21.5 points and 365.8 yards per game. Chandler Fenner leads the Winnipeg Blue Bombers with 76 tackles, Willie Jefferson has 12 sacks and Winston Rose has eight interceptions.
The Calgary Stampeders look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. The Calgary Stampeders have won five of their last six home games. Bo Levi Mitchell is completing 66.8 percent of his passes for 2,494 yards, 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Nick Arbuckle and Levi Mitchell have combined 22 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Reggie Begelton and Eric Rogers have combined for 2,255 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns while Markeith Ambles has 35 receptions. The Calgary Stampeders ground game is averaging 77.9 yards per contest, and Ka'Deem Carey leads the way with 422 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Calgary is allowing 21.9 points and 349.7 yards per game. Cory Greenwood leads the Calgary Stampeders with 78 tackles, Cordarro Law has 10 sacks and Tre Roberson has seven interceptions.
The Blue Bombers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in October, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. West and 23-11 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Stampeders are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games, 1-11 ATS in their last 12 games in October and 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 9-4 in Stampeders last 13 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Blue Bombers last 5 vs. West.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have won three of the last five meetings against the Calgary Stampeders, and that includes a two-point win when these teams met back in August. As well as the Calgary Stampeders have played since the return of their quarterback, they're just 2-6 ATS at home this season and are just 5-9-1 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers aren't the same team they were earlier in the season, but I'll take the free touchdown based on how awful the Stampeders have been ATS the last year and a half.
