CFL: Stampeders Big Grey Cup Favorites Over Ottawa

The 104th Grey Cup is this Sunday (6 PM ET, ESPN2), live from BMO Field in Toronto, and on paper, it looks like a mismatch between the Calgary Stampeders and the Ottawa RedBlacks. The Stampeders opened as 9-point favorites with a total of 54.5 before moving to –9.5.

Calgary (16-2-1 SU, 14-5 ATS) deserve to be the favorites after rolling over the rest of the CFL. The RedBlacks (9-9-1 SU, 8-11 ATS) aren't as strong as last year's Grey Cup finalists, and they're only 1-5 SU and ATS versus the Stamps since bringing football back to Ottawa in 2014. The over went 4-1-1 during those six games.

As well as the Stampeders have played this year, the RedBlacks remain a viable threat. They beat the spread in last year's 26-20 loss to Edmonton, cashing in as 7-point underdogs. Also, Calgary failed to cover two years ago in their Grey Cup win over Hamilton (+7.5), winning a close one 20-16. Both those games went under. Sunday's weather forecast calls for partly cloudy skies over Toronto and temperatures in the low 40s – or around five degrees Celsius.

CFL Odds: Stampeders Favored at 104th Grey Cup

The Calgary Stampeders (16-2-1 SU, 14-5 ATS) are 9.5-point favorites for Sunday's Grey Cup game against the Ottawa RedBlacks (9-9-1 SU, 8-11 ATS), kicking off from Toronto's BMO Field at 6 PM ET on ESPN2. The total opened at 54.5 points on the CFL odds board.

It's a tough matchup for the RedBlacks, but the underdog-under combo was the right pick in each of the last two Grey Cups – including Ottawa's 26-20 loss to Edmonton last year as 7-point puppies (under 52.5). Sunday's forecast for Toronto: Partly cloudy with temperatures in the low 40s.
