Calgary Stampeders vs Winnipeg Blue Bombers Prediction Prediction:
Pick: Winnipeg Blue Bombers
The Stampeders have accepted three defeats in their previous four games while the only much-needed win came last Saturday against the Argonauts. Notably, two of those three defeats came against Winnipeg, their opponent in this match. The Stampeders will bench their known face Bo Levi Mitchell which will make the franchise a bit unstable.
Meanwhile, Winnipeg was the final team to receive a bye in the CFL and it happened at the best time. With full home advantage and confidence from defeating the horsemen twice recently, our prediction is Winnipeg Blue Bombers to win on Thursday.
