The under is 19-7 in Blue Bombers last 26 home games. The Stampeders are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 meetings.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have already beaten Calgary twice this season, and now they have an extra week to prepare for this contest. The Calgary Stampeders are a tough team to turn down in the underdog role given their consistency over the years, and they have the top rushing attack in the league this season. However, the Stamps have been hit or miss over the last month and their defense is a concern. The Blue Bombers got whatever they wanted offensively in two meetings against Calgary this year. The extra week makes it hard for me to bet against the Blue Bombers. Give me the home team by a touchdown.
