I know I've said it before, but I'm not changing my picks anymore. It never seems to work out.
Hamilton @ Edmonton: This is getting spooky. I know in my head that one thing can't possibly have anything to do with the other. But it seems every time I pick Hamilton to win, they lose, and every time I pick them to lose, they win. So no matter how much I want to pick Hamilton, and no matter how sure I am that they'll win, and no matter how much common sense tells me that this is just superstition and nothing I do can possibly affect the outcome of the game, I don't want that and my desire to qualify for the VGCC post-season to cost my team a playoff spot. So, as silly as it may sound, Edmonton by 1. (Go Cats!)
Calgary @ B.C.: B.C. looked rather ordinary until near the end of the game last week, and nearly pulled off a spectacular come-from-behind victory. That loss may be a wake-up call for them: even they can't just saunter into the stadium and expect to leave with a W. With first place on the line, I don't think they'll make that mistake this week. Lions by 6.
Winnipeg @ Montreal: Montreal is stinging from their loss in Hamilton, and is not a team that often loses two in a row. Winnipeg is stinging from the entire season so far; these teams are often dangerous. But Montreal is 6-1 in their own park, and Winnipeg has yet to win outside Canad Inns. This could get ugly early. Als by 19.
Saskatchewan @ Toronto: The Riders jumped out to an early lead last week, and then went into a holding pattern for the rest of the game while their defence held off a late rally. Will that work again? Probably not. Without the "13th man" on their side, do they have a chance against a decent team at this point in the season? Probably not. Argos by 9.
