Canadian Football League Week 7 action comes to a close when Calgary hosts Ottawa in a CFL West vs East battle. As the monster spread illustrates, the expansion Redblacks are in tough here as the Stampeders are arguably the best team in the league. Kickoff is slated for 7:30 PM ET on August 9, 2014, from McMahon Stadium in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Calgary aims to rebound from first loss of the CFL season
From a betting perspective, we see the Stampeders 25-24 loss to the BC Lions last week as a good thing. Calgary (4-1), if they were still undefeated, may have looked past Ottawa in this contest. Not wanting to lose two straight, especially to the expansion Redblacks, we the see the Stamps being an angry bunch tonight. Even without super star RB Jon Cornish, Calgary is head and shoulders above Ottawa as they have outscored their opponents by a 123-77 count over their first five games. We like the Calgary defense versus former Stamps QB Henry Burris.
Expansion Redblacks have struggled in their inaugural CFL campaign
Looking very much like an expansion squad, Ottawa suffered an embarrassing 38-14 loss to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in front of their hometown faithful at TD Place Stadium last weekend. It could have been worse as the Green ‘Riders appeared to take their foot off the gas after going up 32-7 at halftime. Heading into Week 7 action, Ottawa (1-4) is just one win out of first place as the four clubs in the weak East Division are sporting a 5-16 record. Always on the lookout for “gifts” from the bookmakers – we have loaded up on the Stamps money line price here.
