I've said it several times in the past; the Calgary Stampeders are the best team in the CFL, and they don't lose games SU and rarely fail to cover the number. It doesn't matter what the spread is, just take it and good things happen. Every once in a while you find a team like that in a sport. The Calgary Stampeders happen to be one. We're talking about eight covers in their last 11 games overall and 18 covers in their last 23 home games. Give me the Stampeders by double digits.
