Grey Cup Predictions
With Grey Cup 2019 being held at McMahon Stadium, the Stampeders have every incentive in getting to the final. First they have to overcome the Blue Bombers, before then facing a major test in Saskatchewan against the Roughriders.
In the East, the winners of the Alouettes game against the Eskimos face a daunting task on the road at the Tiger-Cats.
Hamilton looks to have the easier route to the Grey Cup, but the tips are the Stampeders to make their way to the final and, with home advantage, make a successful defence of the trophy.
