The Calgary Stampeders have won eight of the last nine games against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, but they're not the same team right now due to injuries. The Stampeders are coming off back-to-back home losses and are averaging just 277.7 yards of offense in their last three games. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have covered five of their eight home games and are outscoring teams by 8.8 points at home. I'm going to eat the chalk here based on the way Calgary has played lately.
