Where: McMahon Stadium,
Calgary, Alberta

Time: 7:00 ET | TV: CBSN
Opening Odds: Winnipeg -4.5/47

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have played in four consecutive Grey Cups and won two of them. So it’s a little shocking to see them sitting at 0-3 SU and ATS to start the 2024 season. Winnipeg will look to get back into the win column when they visit the Calgary Stampeders in a Week 4 matchup on Saturday night at McMahon Stadium. The Blue Bombers are still getting respect from oddsmakers and are a 3.5-point road favorite with a total pegged at 47.

The Stamps are coming off a Bye after splitting their first two games including a 26-17 road loss at British Columbia in Week 2. Winnipeg is also coming off a game against the Lions, a 26-24 home loss last weekend. The series has been one-sided since a 13-12 Calgary win in 2011. The Bombers have won each of the last six matchups including all three in 2023. The Under is 5-4 in the last nine.

On the injury-front for Winnipeg, several players didn’t participate in Wednesday’s practice including DB Souleymane Karamonko (illness), WR Dalton Schoen (knee), WR Keric Wheatfall (knee), and OL Tui Eli (hip). For the Stamps, only DL Kwadwo Boahen (back) missed practice. Defensive back Bentlee Sanders (shoulder) and DL Kelon Thomas (head, shoulder) were limited.


Winnipeg played their best game of the season in last week’s two-point loss to the B.C. Lions. The Bombers were down 20-7 in the third quarter before putting things together offensively and taking a 24-23 lead in the fourth quarter before falling 26-24. Backup quarterback and short-yardage specialist Chris Streveler, ran the ball 10 times for 24 yards and three touchdowns. Wideouts Nic Demski and Drew Wolitarksy recorded 94 and 72 yards, respectively with a combined 15 catches. Zach Collaros had just seven incompletions on 30 pass attempts, with zero TDs and picks.


The Stamps followed a Week 1 win with a tough 26-17 loss to B.C. on June 15. Calgary got off to a great start with a first quarter touchdown from Jake Maier to Marken Michel, but the rest of the night featured too many drives that ended with either punts or turnovers. The Stampeders recorded 400 yards of total offense, but scoring only 17 points just won’t get it done. The Defense ranks dead last in the CFL with 415 yards per game allowed and last in rushing defense as well (120.5).

This is the perfect week to get on Winnipeg. They are a desperate team that needs a win bad. Calgary’s defense is horrible right now and Collaros and company should be able to march up and down the field. I’ll lay the points.

Pick: Blue Bombers -3.5
