The Calgary Stampeders are coming off a last-second victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Bo Levi Mitchell is completing 62.9 percent of his passes for one touchdown and three interceptions. Mitchell is capable of so much more, as this is a QB who has thrown 32 touchdowns and 11 picks in his last two seasons. Jeff Fuller leads Calgary with nine receptions and 148 receiving yards, while Eric Rogers has the team’s only receiving touchdown. Jon Cornish has gotten off to an impressive start with 70 rushing yards on just 13 touches. Defensively, Calgary is allowing 23 points and 318 yards. Buddy Jackson leads the Stampeders with eight tackles and Charleston Hughes has two sacks. Brandon Boudreaux and Corey Mace are questionable with injuries.

The Montreal Alouettes look to bounce back after being upset at home against the Ottawa Redblacks. Brandon Bridge has completed 50 percent of his passes for 62 yards and an interception. He may be the starter this week with Dan LeFevour out for the season and Jonathan Crompton questionable with a shoulder injury. Nik Lewis and S.J. Green have combined for 91 receiving yards, while Jean-Christophe Beaulieu has the team’s lone receiving touchdown. Tyrell Sutton has 11 of Montreal’s 14 rushing attempts, and he made the most of it with 70 yards and a touchdown. Defensively, Montreal is allowing 20 points and 376 yards. Bear Woods leads the way with eight tackles and Jonathan Hefney is one of three players with an interception. Chris Ackie and Andrew Lue are questionable with injuries.
The Stampeders are 20-7-1 ATS in their last 28 road games and 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Alouettes are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games in July. The Stampeders are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings.
The Stampeders are a covering machine on the road, and I have no idea what to expect from the Alouettes, who could be on their third quarterback. I hate the big chalk, but I feel like I have little choice given the circumstances.
