Stampeders Host RedBlacks in Week 3 CFL Action

Stampeders Football

Stampeders Look to Keep Dominance Over RedBlacks

The fans at McMahon Stadium will see the Ottawa RedBlacks and the Calgary Stampeders when they take their seats on Thursday night. The Stampeders have never lost to the RedBlacks in McMahon Stadium. They are a perfect 3-0.

None of Ottawa’s four trips to Cowtown have gone well. The losses of 38-17 (Aug. 9, 2014), 48-3 (Aug. 15, 2015), 48-23 (Sep. 17, 2016) and 43-39 (June 29, 2017) add to the pressure.

The Stampeders are 17-2 at home dating back to 2016. They have looked largely unbeatable since then.

Oddsmakers have Calgary as 7.5-point favorites. The total is set at 57.

Kickoff is at 9:00 p.m. ET and can be seen on TSN, RDS and ESPN+.

Looks Business as Usual for Stampeders

Calgary won its last outing, a 41-7 result against the Argonauts on June 23. The Stampeders covered in that game as a -4-point favorite. The 48 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

Bo Levi Mitchell and the Stamps are at 2-0 sit in first-place. This is a position they’ve grown accustomed to over the past few seasons.

Veteran defensive back Adam Berger will start at safety for the Stamps this week in place of the injured Tunde Adeleke.

Also out of the lineup is defensive lineman Cordarro Law. Wide receiver Marken Michel will miss his second straight week of action.

6  is the number of League-high sacks registered by Calgary this season. Even without Law on the line, the quartet of James Vaughters, Derek Wiggan, Micah Johnson and JaGared Davis is downright scary.

203 rushing yards for Calgary’s Don Jackson through two weeks. That is the most in the CFL. Keep in mind that backup RB Terry Williams has also ran for 103 yards.

Ottawa Looks to End Bad Run Against Stampeders

Ottawa won its last outing, a 40-17 win against the Roughriders on June 21. The RedBlacks covered in that game as a -2-point favorite. The 57 combined points took the game OVER the total.

Ottawa faces a monumental challenge entering McMahon Stadium on Thursday night — of that there is little doubt.

One thing is almost certain for the RedBlacks. If Diontae Spencer goes off they’re going to have a good day. It doesn’t matter if it is on offense or in the return game. He has showcased elite speed in both phases. Spencer appears poised to built on last season’s 922-yard performance.

7 is the number of Wins for Trevor Harris in his last eight starts. The Ottawa QB threw for 345 yards and two touchdowns in last week’s win.
