Score Prediction:

Given Calgary’s strong record on the road and Ottawa’s struggles at home, the Stampeders seem to be the favorites going into this match. However, Ottawa’s defense showed some grit in Week 1 and could pose problems for Calgary. This game could be a low-scoring affair, and taking the under on the 43.5 point total seems reasonable.

Predicted Score: Calgary Stampeders 20, Ottawa Redblacks 13.

This promises to be a tightly contested game with both teams looking to bounce back from opening week losses. Don’t miss the action as the Calgary Stampeders take on the Ottawa Redblacks at TD Place Stadium.
