Division Final Picks

No Calgary. Glorious.

We’re guaranteed a fresh match in next week’s Grey Cup and I couldn’t be happier about it.

Edmonton @ Hamilton: Sunday, November 17th (1:00pm EDT)

Pick: Hamilton
Common, does anyone really have Edmonton here? Yeah Trevor Harris looked like a god last week but he wasn’t playing a real defence. While something can said about Hamilton’s record being inflated because they play in the East, they have beaten some very good teams. No club has ever crossed over and made it to the Grey Cup and it ain’t happening this year.

Winnipeg @ Saskatchewan: Sunday, November 17th (4:30pm EDT)

Pick: Saskatchewan
This is partly superstitious and partly factual. Winnipeg has lost both times in Saskatchewan this year. Yeah, they won last year but that was last year. I don’t expect the Riders to flop here and their defence has matched up very well against the Bomber run. Winnipeg needs to play the exact same game they had last week against Calgary. Problem is however, Saskatchewan won’t be surprised by it. Finally, the Bombers seem to perform opposite of my pick, so there’s that and my extreme bias.

Last week: 1-1.

Season: 60-18 

See you in less than a week in Calgary! bllllLLLLLUUUUUEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!
