2013 CFL Predictions Week 4

Toronto at Winnipeg
On neutral ground I would have to give it to Toronto. Winnipeg's defence is good and gets a lot of sacks and doesn't allow much of a run game, while their passin offense even with a still healthy Buck Pierce is anemic. The Argos are at least respectable, if not great. Still though, I have to feel that home field advantage is worth something here, despite Winnipeg having some injuries.
Bombers 24, Argos 21

Montreal at Calgary
Montreal is on the road and not the same team as last year, plus guard Scott Flory is now gone for the season. Calgary has problems with Drew Tate being injured, but Kevin Glenn is pretty much fungible with him. Plus Jon Cornish is one of the few running backs in the CFL capable of turning a game. Seems an easy choice.
Stampeders 24 Alouettes 19

Edmonton at BC
Edmonton just looked bad last week and BC looked good. Considering the Esks are on the road, expect another Kavis Reed meltdown. Also is Fred Stamps injured? If so then the Esks are doubly screwed. At least the Esks can't get rained on this game, although they could used the randomness and pass difficulty that is inherent in a game played in a downpour.
Lions 29 Edmonton 11

Hamilton at Saskatchewan
Hamilton finally won a game this week. The Riders are undefeated and at home. Normally the Cats would be totally screwed here, but quarterback Darian Durant has been seen with a walking boot in Regina. I'm guessing he makes it back though. Burris will probably through for a lot of yards, get sacked and the Cats will have no run game. They probably also won't be able to stop Kory Sheets.
Riders 35 Ticats 25
