Yikes. Last weeks picks were a bit of a bust, to say the least. This week I am back, and I feel confident with my choices.

Do you know it’s only 101 days away from the 101st Grey Cup?

That’s a little old school 2007 Grey Cup photo to celebrate the countdown. Now, let’s get this picking party started.

WEEK 8

HAM -4.0 / WPG

Andy Fantuz is back in the mix this week as the Ticats head to Winnipeg for Friday nights match-up. Which means the Rum Hut will be open, friends. Winnipeg has only won 1 game. It’s week 8, you do the math (tricked ya, they have lost 6). The point is, these 2 teams are the worst in the East, but compared to each other, Hamilton edges ahead. I expect them to get their 2nd win against the Bombers and improve their record.

MTL / SASK -12.0

The Riders will win this game, make no mistake about it. But by 12 points? That’s a risky gamble. I say play it. Last week the Als lost to the Argos 38-13 (which is odd, the Argos have had 2 games back-to-back where they got 38 points). With that kind of gap, the Riders, who are a great team, should do the same. Plus, the Roughriders smelled a loss last week and will be out to prove that was a one-time-only mistake.

CGY +3.o / BC

This is a tough one. BC has gone 3-0 at home, but Calgary has won their last 4 games. Who do you choose? I stay stick with Calgary. Jon Cornish is impressive, to say the least, plus with the extra 3 points to cover, in a close game, you always pick the “underdog”. With Tate out, again, and Kevin Glenn in, the job will get done.

EDM / TOR

With no lines on this game, Toronto is your clear winner. Edmonton has the same abysmal record as Winnipeg, while Toronto sits a top of the East. JC Sherritt is also out, which is no help to the Esks in any way. I expect this to be a blow out, with no less than 35 points on the board for the Argos.

Enjoy the games!
