The Stampeders are going to be able to run away with this game as the defense will be able to stuff the Blue Bombers who are without their star receiver on the year. What else will help the Stampeders out is the fact the offense has some great passing on the year and it will continue in this game here. Final Score Prediction, Calgary Stampeders win but do not cover ATS 24-20.
