The Calgary Stampeders and Ottawa Redblacks meet Thursday in CFL action at TD Place Stadium.

The Calgary Stampeders look for another win after winning three of their last four games. The Calgary Stampeders have split their last four road games. Bo Levi Mitchell is completing 63 percent of his passes for 527 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Levi Mitchell and Nick Arbuckle have combined for 1,441 passing yards and eight touchdowns this season. Reggie Begelton and Eric Rogers have combined for 577 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Markeith Ambles has 21 receptions. The Calgary Stampeders ground game is averaging 62.8 yards per contest, and Ka'Deem Carey leads the way with 134 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Calgary is allowing 24 points and 354.2 yards per game. Cory Greenwood leads the Calgary Stampeders with 34 tackles, Cordarro Law has four sacks and Tre Roberson has five interceptions.

The Ottawa Redblacks need a victory here to snap a three-game losing streak. The Ottawa Redblacks have lost two of their last three home games. Dominique Davis is completing 66 percent of his passes for 1,132 yards, three touchdowns and seven interceptions. Davis has six touchdown passes and eight interceptions in his last 195 pass attempts. RJ Harris and Dominique Rhymes have combined for 579 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Brad Sinopoli has 19 receptions. The Ottawa Redblacks ground game is averaging 95 yards per contest, and Mossis Madu leads the way with 227 yards and on 55 carries. Defensively, Ottawa is allowing 33 points and 432.4 yards per game. Avery Williams leads the Ottawa Redblacks with 31 tackles, Avery Ellis has three sacks and Jonathan Rose has one interception.

The Stampeders are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 Thursday games, 2-6 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The RedBlacks are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games in July, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Thursday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings in Ottawa and 7-3-1 in the last 11 meetings. The over is 5-2 in RedBlacks last 7 home games. The under is 7-2 in Stampeders last 9 games overall.

The Ottawa Redblacks already beat Calgary on the road this season, but they've been shaky at home this year where they're losing by an average of 9.6 points. During their three-game losing streak, the Redblacks are losing by an average of 27 points and are averaging just 287 yards of offense. While the Calgary Stampeders don't look like the same team from past years, it's tough to make a case for Ottawa in its current form. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Stampeders. 

Pick:
Calgary Stampeders -5
