CFL Previews, Week 18, Part 2

Calgary at BC,
Calgary is favoured by 1.5 points. BC is only 4 and 3 at home, whereas the Stamps are 3 and 4 on the road, so that's pretty much a wash. Calgary is on a one game winning streak, while BC conversely is on a one game losing streak. Printers looks like he will start again this week, after having decent chemistry again with Geroy Simon. BC running back Mallett is questionable, which shouldn't help the Lions. For the Stamps winning next week guarantees the top spot in the West. BC needs help to come second and also wants to stay ahead of Edmonton who slapped the Argos last night, so one could argue this game means more to them. I still like Calgary.
Calgary 30, BC 28

Winnipeg at Montreal,
So this game means nothing to the Alouettes, although they are trying to maintain their perfect home record. Which is something I suppose, although the ultimate goal is obviously the Grey Cup and Montreal, despite their great teams over the years has been kinda sucky in terms of number of Cups. The Alouettes are favoured by a fairly colossal 9.5 points so I assume Calvillo will play at least part of the game. With Edmonton winning last night, next week's game is more important for the Bombers. On that basis and the fact that Michael Bishop has to regress back to his mean occasionally (Interception City!) I will go with Alouettes to stay perfect at home.
Montreal 25, Winnipeg 19
