Greg Ellingson and Dalton Schoen have combined for 1,021 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns, while Rasheed Bailey has 20 receptions.

Adam Bighill leads the Winnipeg Blue Bombers with 28 tackles, Willie Jefferson has 3 sacks and Nicholas Taylor has 3 interceptions.

The Calgary Stampeders have won 7 of their last 8 regular season games. Bo Levi Mitchell is completing 64.3 percent of his passes for 1,299 yards, 7 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Malik Henry and Kamar Jorden have combined for 686 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns, while Reggie Begelton has 18 receptions. The Calgary Stampeders ground game is averaging 111.8 yards per contest, and Ka’Deem Carey leads the way with 379 yards and 3 touchdowns. Defensively, Calgary is allowing 22.4 points and 365.2 yards per game. Cameron Judge leads the Calgary Stampeders with 24 tackles, Shawn Lemon has 3 sacks and Jameer Thurman has 2 interceptions.

The Blue Bombers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 35-17 ATS in their last 52 games overall. The Stampeders are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 home games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Blue Bombers last 7 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Stampeders last 6 games overall.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are going to be favored for obvious reasons, as they’re unbeaten and led by a defense that’s second in run defense and first in scoring defense. However, the Calgary Stampeders have shown a little more balance this season, mainly on the offensive side, and they hung around with the Blue Bombers on the road a couple of weeks ago. We also can’t ignore the home team has won 9 of the last 10 meetings between these teams. The Stamps have also had an extra week to prepare here. This line feels like a steal. Give me the Calgary Stampeders.
