On paper its not even close - but these special games are never played on paper.
I'm looking for Durant to have another near career best day - hooking up with Roosevelt (prolly the league's best overall WR) for at least 2 TDs and 10 to 12 targets for around 175-200 yds.
If Bombers fall behind prior to half-time look for severe effects of the no-minds & half-wits which infest rider-nation to throw the bombers off their game - causing unreal breakdowns in bomber discipline and failure to make the prescribed comeback.
Tip-off for Bombers giving up the ghost this week - Boxcar Willy inserted into the fray!
If Corky pulls off the W over a mighty 5-4 CFL team he'll be hailed a conquering hero and carried off the field on a sedan chair.
Bombers not really worried about going to 5-5, although getting swept by Jonestown in the home and home would re-establish hometown panic and the temporary suspension of Grey Cup parade plans.
Right now, the bombers best road to the Grey Cup DOES NOT GO THRU THE WEST.
Having to deal with Calgary, BC & Edmonton is not a good trip, especially Calgary.
If Bombers can go 9-9; 10-8 for sure they'll get the crossover spot into the East; prolly encountered Ottawa or Montreal in the East semi - - - both more winnable games than playing Edmonton or BC in the west (on the road)
9-9 with a crossover also means Mik O'Shea and Ky Walters are re-upped for 3 year guarandamteed contracts!
7-11 or 8-10 without playoffs prolly means Mighty Mike, the good stoic is re-setting his resume and hunting for a coordinator position!
Against the form chart -
In any event hometown Ratriders are 55.5% faves to win this afternoon.
