Henry Burris and the red-hot Calgary Stampeders welcome the ice-cold Edmonton Eskimos to McMahon Stadium on Monday afternoon (4:30 pm Eastern) as the Week 10 CFL betting slate concludes with a key Western Conference matchup.
Calgary sits in first place with a 6-2 record (5-3 ATS), just two points ahead of Edmonton which has compiled a slate of 5-3 (4-4 ATS). The Stampeders have won four games in a row since losing to Edmonton 24-19 back on July 23.
Meanwhile the Eskimos have hit the skids since opening the season with five consecutive wins, losing in succession to Winnipeg, Montreal and British Columbia in their three most recent games while being outscored by a total of 91-21 in those matchups.
The Stamps are huge 9-point favorites to continue their winning ways at home on Monday, and have ascended to the top of the CFL futures ladder to win the Grey Cup at 9/4 odds. Burris has thrown for 2,462 yards in eight games so far this season with 13 touchdowns, five interceptions and a QB rating of 96.9.
Eskimos pivot Ricky Ray hasn’t thrown a touchdown pass since the first quarter of Edmonton’s 28-16 loss to the Blue Bombers back on August 5, and was picked off three times in a 36-1 loss to the Lions in Week 8.
This game will be the first leg of back-to-back matchups between these two bitter rivals. Prior to Edmonton’s win over Calgary back in Week 4, the Stamps had won the previous seven games between these teams dating back to September 2009.
The Stampeders are 7-3 ATS in the past 10 clashes with the Eskimos in Calgary.
