The Ottawa Redblacks have a chance to make history by winning their first Grey Cup in franchise history. The Ottawa Redblacks have not won back-to-back games since June 25-30. Henry Burris is completing 68.2 percent of his passes for 2,419 yards, 12 touchdowns and nine interception. Burris has two or more touchdown passes in four of his last six games. Chris Williams and Greg Ellingson have combined for more than 2,500 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns while Ernest Jackson has 88 receptions.

The Stampeders are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 19-7 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The RedBlacks are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in November. The Stampeders are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings and the over is 3-0-1 in the last 4 meetings.
This is a lot of points to give up in a championship game, but the Calgary Stampeders have shown all season they're head and shoulders the best team in the CFL. We're talking about a Calgary team that's lost just two games all season long and has covered majority of those contests during the process. Meanwhile, the Ottawa Redblacks haven't won back-to-back games in quite some time and lost to the Stampeders by 25 points back in September. Seeing a double-digit victory by the Stampeders and yet another Grey Cup going in the trophy case is the likely outcome here.
