Calgary @ Montreal: Calgary played a close game against the best team in the league last week. Now itâ€™s time for a bad week. Iâ€™ll be cheering for the Stamps, but itâ€™ll be hard to come out of Montreal with a win. Als by 11.
Ottawa @ Winnipeg: The best team in the East versus the worst team in the West. Both teams are in danger of being over-confident after winning last week. But Ottawa, unlike Winnipeg, has a reason to be confident. Ottawa is a good team, and will show it here with a 15-point win.
Hamilton @ B.C.: Ha, ha, ha, ha. I have to laugh to keep from crying. I'll say what I said the last time these two teams played (and I was proven RIGHT, don't forget!) If McManus plays, and is healthy, it may be close. And I'll add this: If the defence plays--which they didn't in Winnipeg--the Cats may even have a shot of knocking off the top team in the league. Everyone knows deep down that B.C.'s first loss is going to be against a crappy team...but Hamilton right now aspires to become a crappy team. "Crappy" eludes them. Bottom line: I'm not picking the Cats again until they start winning. Lions by six...touchdowns!
Toronto @ Edmonton:This will likely be the best game of the week, since it is the only one between two teams with winning records. Both teams are in second place, right where they finished last year. I guess Allen will be starting, since they proved last week that even an injured Allen is better than a healthy Bishop. Tough call, the Eskimos are unbeaten at home, and I'm guessing they'll remain that way.
Summary: Montreal over Calgary, Ottawa over Winnipeg, B.C. over Hamilton, Edmonton over Toronto.
