Defensively, Calgary is allowing 23 points and 346.9 yards per game. Wynton McManis leads the Calgary Stampeders with 82 tackles, Cordarro Law has 10 sacks and Tre Roberson has seven interceptions.
The BC Lions are coming off a bye week and have split their last eight games. The BC Lions have won three of their last four home games. Mike Reilly is completing 69.5 percent of his passes for 3,897 yards, 20 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Reilly has at least one touchdown pass in 28 of his last 34 games. Bryan Burnham and Lemar Durant have combined for 2,211 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns while Shaquille Johnson has 37 receptions. The BC Lions ground game is averaging 99.4 yards per contest, and John White leads the way with 960 yards and seven touchdowns. Defensively, BC is allowing 25.4 points and 337.7 yards per game. Maleki Harris leads the BC Lions with 66 tackles, Odell Willis has four sacks and Garry Peters has four interceptions.
The Stampeders are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games, 0-3-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Lions are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a bye week, 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 home games and 6-13-1 ATS in their last 20 games overall. The Stampeders are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings in BC and the under is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in BC. The under is 8-1 in Lions last 9 games overall. The under is 8-3 in Stampeders last 11 road games.
The last two meetings between Calgary and BC have been decided by a combined six points and three of the last four meetings overall have been decided by five or less points. The Calgary Stampeders have failed to cover each of their last six games and are only winning their last three games by an average of 1.7 points. The BC Lions have had an extra week to prepare for this game and they've played their best ball at home where the defense picks up a little bit. I'll take a shot with BC and the free touchdown.
