The Lions are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games, 4-9 ATS in their last 13 road games and 5-12-1 ATS in their last 18 vs. West. The Stampeders are 7-1-1 ATS in their last 9 games in Week 18, 2-8 ATS in their last 10 vs. West and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games in October. The Lions are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 meetings in Calgary, 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings and the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Calgary Stampeders have won eight of the last 10 meetings against the BC Lions, but four of the last eight meetings have been decided by single digits. BC is playing improved football as of late and is in more of a must-win sitaution with the playoffs being decided over the next month. The Calgary Stampeders seem to be on cruise control at times and has had a lot of recent games come down to the wire. I'll take a shot with the free points.
