The Calgary Stampeders and Toronto Argonauts each pulled off upsets last week on the road to earn the right to compete in the 100th Grey Cup. Toronto also earned the right to home field advantage in this edition of the Grey Cup, after going only 9-9 in regular season play. The Stamps on the other hand went 12-6 in the regular season.
The Stampeders were able to weather the Lions 4th quarter storm in their West Division showdown with their rivals winning the game 34-29 to advance to the Grey Cup. Toronto on the other hand had a big two touchdown fourth quarter and never looked back in defeating the Alouettes 27-20 in Montreal.

100th Grey Cup Prediction
It’s true that the Stampeders have had a better season and a more difficult road to the Grey Cup having to beat the league leading Lions last week, but does that warrant them the favourites tag in a Grey Cup where Toronto is lucky enough to have home field advantage?
The Argos have been firing on all cylinders of late having won their last 4 games. That said their only above .500 competition has been the Argonauts since week 12 back on September 15th when they lost to the Lions. The Stamps have also been on a tear winning their last 6 games.
These two teams have played twice this season with Toronto pulling out both games. After seeing that and given the home field advantage it’s still unknown why the Argos are 2 point dogs. But then you see it, that 4-5 record at home this season. Not the best home record, but the Stamps are only 5-4 on the road.
I think Chad Owens could be too much of a threat for the Stamps to handle and if he gets going the Argos should be able to win this game. It’s not often you get to play for a Grey Cup in front of your home fans and I don’t expect the Argos to let that chance slip by them.
I like the Argonauts +2 in this one.
