Calgary Stampeders vs BC Lions LIVE CFL Betting Lines and Game Day Prediction
Calgary Stampeders: CFL Week Six Preview and LIVE Odds
Back home for the first time in almost a month, Calgary enters this contest with a 2-1-1 record. The Stampeders have not lost since their battle in British Columbia back in Week One. Since then, the Stamps have posted two wins over the Blue Bombers (36-22 and 33-18) and a 26-26 tie with the Redblacks in Ottawa. Although Winnipeg is woeful, the Stampeders two victories against them look a little more respectful after the Blue Bombers beat the Eskimos 30-23 in Edmonton last night.
Calgary squandered some scoring chances during the first meeting as a 10-3 first half lead should have been closer to 20-3. The Stampeders didn’t run the ball very well in that contest as bulldozing RB Jerome Messam gained 16 yards on seven carries. Calgary has been more run focused recently as Messam has 37 carries and 239 rush yards over the last three games. Messam is getting in on the passing game as well as he has caught four passes (54 yards) in each of his last two contests.

British Columbia Lions: The Leo’s Return to Action Following Their CFL Bye Week
One of the surprise teams out of the 2016 CFL starting gate, British Columbia is 3-1-0 and they own a one-point lead on the Stamps in the CFL West Division. The Lions followed their Week One win against Calgary with a 28-3 victory in Hamilton versus the Tiger-Cats. The Leo’s returned home and dropped a 25-14 decision to Toronto and then posted a 40-27 win against the Roughriders in Saskatchewan prior to their Week Five bye. BC is 1-4 during their last five game against Calgary.
With legendary head coach Wally Buono back on the sidelines, BC leads the CFL with 107.2 rush yards per game. That’s significant as rush averages are down across the league. The Leo’s ground game, led by RB Anthony Allen (168) RB Jeremiah Johnson (120) and QB Jonathon Jennings (91) has scored a CFL high five touchdowns. We don’t see the Stamps giving away another game to the Lions here. Give us the Red & White with five-unit (-204) money line wager at SportsInteraction.
