Calgary Stampeders vs Ottawa REDBLACKS Preview:
Both the Calgary Stampeders and the Ottawa REDBLACKS are coming into this game with 0-1 records, seeking their first victory of the season.
Key Players to Watch:
- Dedrick Mills (RB): He will make his 2023 Stampeders debut after being on the one-game injured list last week. Mills is expected to be the starting tailback with Ka’Deem Carey out due to injury. Last season, Mills racked up 459 yards rushing and two touchdowns.
- Jake Maier (QB): He will be aiming for redemption after completing just 56% of his passes last week. The offensive line must protect him against a relentless Ottawa defense.
- Lorenzo Mauldin IV (DL): Mauldin, the reigning CFL Most Outstanding Defensive Player, started this season strong with four tackles and a sack against Montreal.
- Nick Arbuckle (QB): Given the REDBLACKS’ difficulties in securing the ball in Week 1, with quarterback Nick Arbuckle throwing three interceptions, it’s safe to expect the Stampeders’ defense to be on high alert. Arbuckle will need to be precise and avoid turnovers against a capable Calgary defense.
While both teams are hungry for their first victory, the Stampeders might have the edge in this matchup. Dedrick Mills could be a game-changer for Calgary in the absence of Ka’Deem Carey.
Considering Ottawa’s struggles on offense, the safe bet would be to take Calgary to cover the spread at -6.5. However, as this is an early-season game and both teams are still finding their rhythm, betting the under on the 43.5 point total might also be a prudent choice.
This clash between the Calgary Stampeders and the Ottawa REDBLACKS is sure to be an enthralling one, as both teams are desperate to claim their first win of the season. With key players like Dedrick Mills and Lorenzo Mauldin IV taking the field, fans can expect an intense, hard-fought battle.
