Ugh! Another 2-2 week, causing me to slip a couple of spots. And now mathematically eliminated from first place. But still a game up on the VGCC World picks - for now. Hope it stays that way.
My picks for the final week of the regular season - week 20:
Winnipeg @ Toronto - A meaningless game for both teams, with the Bombers looking to next year, and the Argos looking to rest players before the playoffs. Hard to guess on this one. I'm going with the Argos because they won't want to play badly in the last game in front of their fans.
Hamilton @ Ottawa - The only meaningful game of the four, with first place and a first round bye on the line. Neither offence looked good last week, as both teams have strong, aggressive defences. The Redblacks might be fired up to defend their "target" quarterback. But the Ticats won't be backing down, and will continue to play hardnosed football, hoping the officials aren't tainted by Burris's rant. (I suspect they won't be, as they got that call right.) Do I think the Ticats can actually win this one? Yes. By enough to get first place? I certainly hope so.
Calgary @ B.C. - Technically a meaningless game, but as these two teams will be meeting in the first round, this could become a statement game. I'm just thinking that the Stamps have a bit more depth than the Lions, so even if they both rest their starters, they should be able to win it.
Saskatchewan @ Montreal - Both of these teams are now in training camp mode, having missed the playoffs. But I'm giving the Als the edge over the Riders here because they're playing at home - a last hurrah in front of their fans.
