Betting Odds

Point Spread: 
Calgary -4.5

Winnipeg opened as a two-point road underdog against Saskatchewan for last Sunday’s West Division Semifinal matchup, but with Roughriders’ quarterback Zach Collaros ruled out, the money shifted towards the Blue Bombers as two-point favorites. They went onto win 23-18 with the total staying UNDER the 50-point closing line.

Matt Nichols completed 16 of his 22 passing attempts in that game for 169 yards and a score. The Blue Bombers did most of their damage running the ball behind Andrew Harris. He gained 153 yards on 19 carries including one run for a score.

Calgary has been to the last two Grey Cups only to lose as a favorite. It comes into this title run a bit shaky after losing three of its last four regular-season games SU. Even worse for bettors is a 3-6 record ATS in the Stampeders previous nine outings. They are 13-5 SU overall with a 9-9 record ATS. They have a 4-5 record ATS at home this season.

Winnipeg at Calgary Prediction 11/18/2018

The Stampeders are still the best team in the CFL by a wide margin when playing to form. They did lose to Winnipeg 29-21 on Oct. 26 as 3.5-point road underdogs. However, they beat the Blue Bombers 39-25 earlier in the year as 7.5-point favorites at home. I still think Calgary is on a mission to right the wrong from the past two seasons as West Division Champs and Sunday is the first step with the SU win and cover.
