9:00 PM EST. The Stamps have been the class of the league for a long time and are capable of putting up big points at will. They've owned the Argonauts with seven straight wins with many of those games being totally lopsided, including earlier this season in Toronto. The Stamps took out the Boatmen on Toronto’s turf with a 41-24 victory as just a six-point road favorite and now they are being asked to cover just 10 points. However, that 41-24 victory over Toronto was much prettier on paper, as Calgary outgained the Argos by a mere 28 yards. Calgary has already lost to Montreal this year and was fortunate to get a tie and a win against Ottawa. The Stamps could easily be a three-time loser to East squads this season but because they have won four in a row and are 6-1-1 overall, you will pay a hefty price to back them here. Calgary is not even close to dominating games like the media and this tag suggests they are.
Usually when a team wins 38-6 in the CFL there is an overreaction next time out. That is unless said team is playing in Calgary. That's the situation the Argonauts find themselves in this week. With the return of Ricky Ray, the Argos destroyed the Alouettes in a game that wasn't even as close as the lopsided score would suggest. When in the lineup, Ray has been great this season throwing for 2798 yards, 14 touchdowns, and five interceptions. What we’re seeing with the Argos is a team coming together very quickly with growing confidence. Their defense has been outstanding this year, the offense barely broke a sweat last week and the coaching staff is perhaps the best in the business. Toronto can and likely will compete wire-to-wire here. This is a close-knit bunch that believes strongly in what the coaches are preaching and it’s paying off. Aside from that, this line is an insult and is locker room material. Don’t be surprised to see the Argonauts win outright here but these points are too generous to pass up on.
