Stampeders vs. Argonauts Picks

Stampeders vs. Argonauts ML Pick

Stampeders (-135)

The Stampeders are undefeated in their three games against East Division opponents this season. Toronto is the only team in the division they have yet to face. Last week, the 5-3 Stamps nearly beat the B.C. Lions, who are regarded as one of the best teams in the league.

Toronto has lost two of its last three games. The Argos are 2-2 overall against West Division opponents. However, both of those wins came against the Saskatchewan Roughriders in back-to-back games. They own a 4-4 season record and are coming off of a 34-27 loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats last week.           

Stampeders vs. Argonauts ATS Pick

Stampeders -2.5 (-110)

Calgary is 3-5 against the spread this season. However, the team is 2-1 ATS against East Division opponents. The only game in which the Stamps failed to cover a spread against the East was their -4 points against the Montreal Alouettes in Week 1.

The Argos are 4-4 ATS on the year. They have failed to cover this spread in their last two losses. They will be without running back Andrew Harris who has been a major part of their offense this season. This will hamper their ability to control the ball considerably. Points will be at a premium this week for the Argonauts. 

Stampeders vs. Argonauts O/U Pick

Over 50 (-110)

The Stampeders have played in only two games this season that have not exceeded this point total. In three games against East Division opponents, only one did not reach this mark. Calgary is averaging 30.8 points per game behind only B.C. for the most in the league.

Four of Toronto’s last five games have surpassed this Over. Three of their four games against West Division opponents have achieved this goal. The Argos are averaging 22.5 points per game this season. However, they have scored more than 30 points in three of their last five games.
