Week 5 Picks

Week 5 Picks Awwww yuuuuck, bye week! Ugh. Calgary @ Ottawa: Thursday, July 12 (7:30pm EDT) Pick: Calgary While it’s true that Ottawa seems to get under Calgary’s skin defensively, they don’t have the offense to completely beat them down. Toronto @ Edmonton: Friday, July 13 (9:00pm EDT) Pick: Edmonton How are the Argos to…
