When Calgary plays at Winnipeg on Friday we could be in for a high scoring affair. Both teams have put up impressive numbers so far, but both teams have also struggled to keep other teams from scoring. Winnipeg has played just one game, and that was a 43-40 overtime thriller against Saskatchewan last week.

Calgary opened the season at Ottawa and that resulted in a 31-31 tie after overtime. Last week Calgary beat Ottawa 43-39 at home. Calgary could be ripe for a letdown after playing its arch-rival two weeks in a row.

Bo Levi Mitchell leads the Calgary offense with 671 yards passing and five touchdowns. Andrew Buckley also lines up at quarterback in short yardage situations, and broke one last week for 60 yards and a touchdown. Jerome Messam leads the team in rushing with 116 yards.
Winnipeg's Matt Nichols has played only one game, but threw for 331 yards and four touchdowns. Andrew Harris leads Winnipeg in rushing with 57 yards.

Calgary averaged 424 yards in its first two games, while Winnipeg had 430. Both teams average 335 yards passing. Winnipeg had 96 yards rushing in its one game, while Calgary averaged 89.

While Calgary was scoring a lot, it also gave up a lot. Ottawa's Trevor Harris passed for 725 yards in the two games he has played against Calgary. Ottawa has two receivers with about 200 yards each against Calgary in those two games. Another interesting stat is that Winnipeg has three sacs in its one game, while Calgary has two in its two games played.

Last year Calgary swept all three games and also went 2-1 ATS, but think this year it's much closer game and the Blue Bombers at worst cover for us bettors. So far this CFL season the underdogs have been cashing ATS and see more of the same on Friday night. Final Score Prediction, Calgary Stampeders win but fall short ATS 23-22.
