The Blue Bombers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 17-8 ATS in their last 25 games in July. The Stampeders are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games in July. The Blue Bombers are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
The Stampeders are a far better team than what they showed last week and they should be able to show that at home. Also, it seems like Willy is still trying to find his footing after missing so much playing time last season. It may take a while before he gets back to form. Give me the home team by double digits.
