The Stampeders are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. West, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games in September. The Eskimos are 0-4 ATS vs. a team with a winning record, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. West and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Stampeders are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Edmonton and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 meetings. The under is 7-2 in Eskimos last 9 games overall. The under is 6-2 in Stampeders last 8 games overall.
The Calgary Stampeders cruised in their victory last week and they're a much better and more reliable team with the return of Bo Levi Mitchell at quarterback. However, it's not easy to beat the same team twice in as many weeks and the home team has won eight of the last 10 meetings between Calgary and Edmonton. The Edmonton Eskimos are also winning at home by an average of 9.4 points this season. I'll lay the small chalk with the Eskimos at home.
