You guys know how I feel about big chalk, but this is one of those spots where you can lay it with some confidence. The Calgary Stampeders have won the last four games against the Toronto Argonauts and have been a covering machine along with their massive winning streak overall. The Stampeders haven't lost a game since opening week and are 6-0 ATS in their last six tries on the road. Have to like the Stampeders to get the job done on the road by double digits given the impressive run they've been on this season.
