7-Unit Play. #668. Take Calgary -4 over Ottawa (Sunday, November 25, 6:00 p.m.)
The Calgary Stampeders were the odds-on favorite to win the Grey Cup this year and they are going to do just that this coming weekend. Look, the Stampeders were the best team in the league for all 20 weeks and now they get to play in their third Grey Cup in a row, and they will be eager, desperate, hungry, and any other adjective you can think of to reverse their fortunes and not lose a third in a row. We like their ability on offense with Bo Levi Mitchell leading the way and Don Jackson running the ball. The Stamps finished the regular season averaging 29 points per game which was second best to just Winnipeg. The Stamps make their hay on the defensive side of the ball and that will be evident in this game and it will be the difference in this game against an Ottawa team that, sure beat Hamilton and put up 46, but has been inconsistent week after week. The QB play for the Redblacks has been spotty and Trevor Harris has caught some flack at times from fans and coaches alike in his performances. We don't believe he has enough in him to overcome this Calgary defense. The Stampeders are also playing this game with revenge as they lost their first of two Grey Cup appearances to the heavily underdog Redblacks 39-33 in 2016. They were nine and a half point favorites in that game, and that game still stings around the club. This outcome will be much different and we expect Calgary to win and win going away.
