The Argonauts are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 road games, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Saturday games and 9-23 ATS in their last 32 games overall. The Stampeders are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 12-5 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Argonauts are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Calgary, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings and the under is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings in Calgary.
Calgary has won the last seven meetings against Toronto and many of those games weren't that close. The Calgary Stampeders are also playing like the team from last season at the moment and have been really good against the number. The opposite can be said for the Toronto Argonauts, who haven't won back-to-back games this season and have failed to cover in 23 of their last 32 games. While the spread is high, Calgary should be able to open this game up in the second half.
