The CFL This Week...

My picks in bold. Here goes...

Montreal AT Edmonton: Als are the best and most complete team in the CFL right now. This should be a romp, but the Esks are usually pretty tough at home. Plus, the Als do not win at Commonwealth Stadium too often. But tonight, Anthony Calvillo and crew should have plenty to earn the two points and remain undefeated.

B.C. AT Hamilton: The Lions sorely want to make amends for a home loss at the hands of the Ticats, but who knows what kind of effort Wally Buono's crew is capable of? I like the Ticats, even if they have to use both QB's.

Winnipeg AT Toronto: With malcontent Arland Bruce gone, the Argos can now focus on playing football. It seemed to work well last week in Winnipeg where they handled the Bombers' sputtering offence easily. Argos should bounce Winnipeg, as Kerry Joseph is throwing the ball well and Jamal Robertson is churning up yardage along the ground.

Saskatchewan AT Calgary: Rider fans will almost outnumber the Stampeder-faithful at McMahon Stadium this weekend, but the game is played between the lines. An injury-riddled o-line means the Roughies have no ground game and no passing attack. Calgary has been clicking on both sides of the ball for two weeks now. Calgary wins in a walk.

Last week: 2-2. Season: 8-8.
