Edmonton Eskimos vs Calgary Stampeders Prediction & Betting Odds - CFL Picks
September 07, 2019
The Edmonton Eskimos (6-5) will play the Calgary Stampeders (6-4) for the second time in five days on Saturday evening in CFL gridiron action at the Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton.
It’s a quick turnaround after the game between these two teams in the Labour Day Classic at McMahon Stadium in Calgary, where the Stampeders were convincing 25-9 winners to keep themselves in the running for the West Division title.
On Monday, Stampeders quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell returned to their lineup for the first time since he was sidelined with an injury on June 29 and threw for 263 yards. His 24-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Begelton to start the fourth quarter helped Calgary win the regular-season series against rivals Edmonton.
