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.

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.
