CFL Previews, Week Whatever 2, Part 2

Hamilton at Montreal,
With Calvillo starting at home, the Cats are in tough. Somewhat unsurprisingly the Alouettes are 12.5 point favourites. Glenn is starting so hopefully the Cats will not get off to a horrid start, which would doom them against Montreal. With Calvillo in, the Cats should make sure to get after him early to make him wish he sat this one out. Cobourne starts again at running back for Montreal after sitting out last week, so the Cats will have to find out some way to neutralize him on first down. The Cats are capable of winning if the breaks go their way, but statistically this seems unlikely. Cats don't let it get totally away.
Montreal 40, Cats 29

BC at Winnipeg,
Winnipeg is 3 and 3 at home and BC is 3 and 4 away, so there's not a lot difference there. Winnipeg is favoured by 1.5. Winnipeg is hot, winning their last three games, while BC has won their last two games. Winnipeg running back Fred Reid is apparently questionable, which is not good news for the Bombers. This is a critical game for both teams, especially with Edmonton beating Toronto on Friday. Michael Bishop paired with a good defence surprisingly works, but I'll take the coaching of Wally Buono over Mike Kelly.
BC 27, Winnipeg 24
