The Calgary Stampeders and Ottawa Redblacks meet Friday in week 9 CFL action at TD Place Stadium. The Calgary Stampeders need a win to rebound from back-to-back losses. The Ottawa Redblacks look for a win to rebound from a 1-6 record. 

The Calgary Stampeders have won 7 of their last 9 regular season games. Bo Levi Mitchell is completing 64.5 percent of his passes for 1,518 yards, 7 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Malik Henry and Reggie Begelton have combined for 812 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns, while Kamar Jorden has 29 receptions. The Calgary Stampeders ground game is averaging 116.3 yards per contest, and Ka’Deem Carey leads the way with 471 yards and 5 touchdowns. Defensively, Calgary is allowing 24.5 points and 376 yards per game. Cameron Judge leads the Calgary Stampeders with 32 tackles, Shawn Lemon has 3 sacks and Jameer Thurman has 2 interceptions.

The Ottawa Redblacks have lost 12 of their last 14 regular season games. Jeremiah Masoli is completing 66.7 percent of his passes for 1,083 yards, 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Jaelon Acklin and Darvin Adams have combined for 1,044 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns, while Nathaniel Behar has 30 receptions. The Ottawa Redblacks ground game is averaging 94.1 yards per contest, and William Powell leads the way with 270 yards and 1 touchdown. Defensively, Ottawa is allowing 25.4 points and 403.1 yards per game. Avery Williams leads the Ottawa Redblacks with 38 tackles, Lorenzo Mauldin has 7 sacks and Monshadrik Hunter has 3 interceptions.

The Stampeders are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The RedBlacks are 8-20 ATS in their last 28 home games and 9-22 ATS in their last 31 games overall. The over is 6-1 in Stampeders last 7 games overall. The under is 10-3 in RedBlacks last 13 games overall. The under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.

I’m not going to hold it against the Calgary Stampeders for losing back-to-back games to Winnipeg. The Blue Bombers are beating everybody this season. The Stampeders are still elite offensively, and they had their chances in both games against Winnipeg. The Ottawa Redblacks need more than 1 win for me to show them attention, as they’ve been horrible dating back to the 2019 season and their defense has let them down all year. The Stampeders should have a field day offensively in this spot. I’ll lay the points with the road team.
