Calgary Stampeders Grey Cup Preview

Another dominating regular season from the Calgary Stampeders allowed this club to enjoy a bye week instead of fighting to make the west division finals. The Stampeders defense held opponents to only 363 points all season, 56 points less than the second-best defense of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Calgary finished second in scoring to Winnipeg, giving the Stampeders the best point differential in the CFL.

The Stamps average winning margin over Ottawa was 17 points, which makes Calgary a strong favorite

The Stamps rolled over the Blue Bombers to punch their ticket to the Grey Cup, defeating Winnipeg by a 22-14 margin. Calgary thrived on eastern competition all season, with a perfect 8-0 record against the division, including a pair of wins over the Redblacks in week three and five of the regular season. The Stamps average winning margin over Ottawa was 17 points, which makes Calgary a strong favorite to finally win their first Grey Cup in their third consecutive finals appearances.

Ottawa Redblacks Grey Cup Preview

Most people consider the Redblacks as prohibitive underdogs for the 2018 Grey Cup, especially after Calgary whipped Ottawa in both appearances this season. However, Ottawa’s played outstanding football over the past month, winning three in a row to finish the regular season and dusting the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the eastern finals.

If Calgary doesn’t pay attention to defensive detail, the Redblacks could turn this into a track meet.

Redblacks QB Trevor Harris has caught fire at the right time, setting new playoff records with 6 TD passes and an astronomical 90.6 completion rate against Hamilton. Calgary has a definite edge on defense and line play on both sides of the ball, but Ottawa’s skill players are a bit more dynamic than the Stampeders. If Calgary doesn’t pay attention to defensive detail, the Redblacks could turn this into a track meet.

2018 Grey Cup Prediction

Calgary Stampeders Defeat Ottawa Redblacks 30-24.
