Week 9 Picks

Montreal @ Winnipeg: Friday, August 22 (8:30pm EDT)

Pick: Winnipeg

This is NOT a gimme game for Winnipeg.  The league has figured out how bad their O and D lines are.  This game hinges on that fact and the turn over battle.  Montreal can take the game by forcing turn overs, getting to Willy and running the ball.

Toronto @ Edmonton: Saturday, August 23 (4:00pm EDT)

Pick: Edmonton

I’d say with Chad Owens and the Argos at home they’d have the edge… but they’re in Edmonton and it’s a tough place to play in.

Calgary @ Ottawa: Sunday, August 24 (3:00pm EDT)

Pick: Calgary

Ottawa is due, just not against Calgary.

Saskatchewan @ BC: Sunday, August 24 (7:00pm EDT)

Pick: BC

I think these two are pretty evenly matched.  I have to give it to BC because they are playing at home.  I’ve said it before, they just don’t lose that often in BC Place.

Last Week

(4-1) In my head I knew the Bombers were likely to lose in Toronto in Week 8 but my heart wouldn’t let me pick against them.  (21-12) on the year.  Still hot.
