CFL Handicapper Ron Raymond provides a preview and prediction on the game between the Ottawa REDBLACKS vs. Calgary Stampeders this Saturday, June 15, 2019.
Well, why not start the 2019 season with a Grey Cup rematch right out of the gate! Ottawa will have it’s hands full again, as the last time Ottawa faced the Calgary Stampeders was last November 25th in the 106th Grey Cup Championship in Edmonton, as the Stampeders won 26-17 with Bo Levi Mitchell taking home the hardware with the MVP award.
New Sheriff in town for Ottawa?
The Ottawa REDBLACKS will head into Calgary with a new starting quarterback, as last years starting pivot Trevor Harris left for “greener pastures” in Edmonton and now this is Dominique Davis team. During the off season, the REDBLACKS acquired former BC Lions quarterback Jonathan Jennings who will serve as Davis back up on Saturday.
BOOKMAKER SPORTSBOOK has Calgary Stampeders as a 7.5 point home favorite with the OVER/UNDER at 52.5
The Calgary Stampeders have lost a lot of players as well, including their defensive coordinator, Davone Claybrooks who left Alberta for the mountain views in Vancouver. The Stampeders still have a good core of their nucleus on offense, led by QB Bo Levi Mitchell, wide out Reggie Begelton and slot back Eric Rogers. Defensively, it’s a wait and see approach as Brent Monson is the new DC in Calgary; but if pre season is any indication, the jury is still out!
Ottawa has not had any luck in Calgary over the past several years, as they are 2-8 SU and 3-7-0 ATS since 2002!
RAYMOND REPORT PREDICTION
The Raymond Report CFL Computer Forecast likes the Stampeders to win big over the Ottawa REDBLACKS, as the forecast has Calgary winning by 14 points.
C.O.C. = (Chances of Covering) – The ‘C.O.C.’ percentage is based on a teams win/lost record from a ‘Point Spread’ perspective and not their ‘straight up’ (SU) record, using the teams short and long-term win/lost record. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF COVERING’ percentage for that team in their next game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on betting that team.
C.O.G.O. = (Chances Game Going OVER) – The ‘C.O.G.O.’ percentage is based on both teams OVER/UNDER record, using both teams short and long-term OVER/UNDER records. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF COVERING’ percentage for that game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on the OVER in that game.
*Note: If there’s a 60% chance of the game going OVER, that means, there’s a 40% chance of the game going UNDER.
MSV = (Market Spread Value) – The MSV is our researched and calculated line compared to the bookmaker’s line. When calculating the MSV, we look for the margin of error between the bookmaker’s line, the final result of a game and then produce the value of what the line should be in the next game for both teams.
VI = (Value Index) – The Value Index is the current psychology of the betting public, based on a teams 3-game cycle.
BULLISH = Team is either (3-0) in their last 3 games.
NEUTRAL = Team is either (1-2 or 2-3) in their last 3 games.
BEARISH = Team is either (0-3) in their last 3 games.
L.O.A. = (Law of Average) – The “Law of Average” edge is based on the 50/50 theory. Play on a team that lost against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game, vs. a team that won against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game.
