Head-to-Head: Calgary Stampeders vs Toronto Argonauts
At 7-1, Toronto leads the East division by multiple games and looms as a tough opponent for any of their CFL opponents. They’ve eclipsed 30 points in each of their seven victories, average the second-highest number of yards per game (366.8), and have starting quarterback Chad Kelly ranking third in the CFL in passing yards (2,016) despite playing two fewer games than most of their competitors.
Despite not enjoying nearly as successful of a season overall, fans of the Stampeders will be quick to point out that their team is responsible for the lone blemish in Toronto’s record. While Kelly left the game early with an ankle injury, the Stampeders still won 20-7 while dominating in a variety of metrics.
Calgary converted 22 first downs to Toronto’s 10 in that game, gained 168 yards rushing on 36 attempts, and held possession for nearly 40 minutes – or two-thirds of the game.
Of course, the absence of Kelly – who has since returned to his starting duties – was a significant variable.
Toronto is coming off a 41-33 victory over the Ottawa Redblacks, where Kelly threw for 417 yards and four touchdowns while completing 21 of 28 passes. Calgary is coming off consecutive losses against BC and Winnipeg.

Betting Tips for Calgary Stampeders vs Toronto Argonauts
Toronto has a 7-1 ATS record to go with their 7-1 season record, having covered in all seven of their victories. The over is only 4-4 in Argonauts games, however, and only 1-3 through their last four. That includes an 0-2 record in the two games where the total was set at or above 50.
Calgary is 4-6 ATS in the 2023 season, and hasn’t strung together consecutive ATS wins this season. They’re coming off an ATS win from their 18-19 loss to Winnipeg.
In head-to-head terms, Calgary has dominated Toronto over their last 10 matchups dating back to 2017. They’ve won eight games outright and are 5-3-2 ATS against the Argonauts, but perhaps more compelling is that the over is 1-9 through these games.
Most experts project that a healthy Chad Kelly will lead Toronto to avenge their prior loss to Calgary this season, further distancing themselves as one of the lead teams in the CFL landscape.
