Edmonton Elks vs Calgary Stampeders prediction & odds

Kick-off: 2100 EDT, 07/07/2022

Stadium: The Brick Field


Calgary finished strongly to beat Edmonton 30-23 on home turf a couple of weeks ago and can again prevail in the second Battle of Alberta.

The Elks have since secured their first win of the season at Hamilton, but the Stampeders will head to The Brick Field freshened up by a bye week.

We reckon 1.91 for the visitors to cover 3.5 points start on the spread is the way to go with our opening Edmonton Elks vs Calgary Stampeders prediction.

Edmonton Elks Odds

Edmonton showed great spirit to fight back from 22-9 down to beat the Tiger-Cats 29-25 at Tim Hortons Field on Canada Day.

Canadian rookie quarterback Tre Ford came through his maiden start by completing 15 of 26 passes and rushing for 61 yards.

The 24-year-old should only improve for that experience, but needed a lot of help from his defence.

They reeled in two second-half interceptions and defensive back Jalen Collins returned a late fumble for a touchdown.

“I need to play better; I made a lot of mistakes,” admitted Ford. “I’m a rookie quarterback, but that’s not an excuse.

“I’ve just got to keep putting my work in. We can do a lot better than we did today. Big shout-out to the defence, they saved us.”

We fear this tough test may come just a little too soon for Ford and 4.75 for an away win by 7-12 points appeals from the Edmonton Elks vs Calgary Stampeders odds.

Calgary Stampeders Odds

Bo Levi Mitchell shrugged off a niggling injury problem to throw for over 300 yards and a touchdown when Calgary beat Edmonton last month.

That was a third straight come-from-behind win following previous victories versus Montreal and Hamilton.

Mitchell has had to work hard to overcome the fitness issues which have hampered him in recent years and is clearly enjoying the current hot streak.

“Getting to have fun with football again, that’s a hell of a thing, man,” declared the 32-year-old, who led the Stampeders to Grey Cup triumphs in 2014 and 2018.

If Calgary can begin to start matches better, they could be genuine contenders to go all the way again this term.

However, the stats suggest that the end of each half is where the most points will be scored.

In six matches featuring one or both of these teams this term, the second quarter has had the highest number on three occasions, with the fourth coming out on top twice.

Let’s add 2.6 for Q2 to produce the most points again here to our Edmonton Elks vs Calgary Stampeders betting tips.
