2016 CFL Predictions Week 2

Well week 1 didn't go very well. I feel a little bit like Chris Schultz.

Ottawa REDBLACKS at Montreal Alouettes
The Alouettes are at home and managed to win with Kevin Glenn last week which I wasn't really expecting. Ottawa lost Burris, but it seemed to be addition by subtraction with Trevor Harris coming in. Harris was Hansel like hot last week against Edmonton. Expect that to continue.
REDBLACKS 35 Alouettes 29

BC Lions at Hamilton Tiger-Cats
Both teams won last week, but Hamilton dominated Toronto in all three facets of the game. Masoli looked excellent. The Lions aren't as bad as I thought they might be going into the season (Buono still has it as coach, who knew?) but the Ticats will be extremely tough in their home opener.
Tiger-Cats 35 Lions 21

Toronto Argonauts at Saskatchewan Roughriders
Toronto was mediocre at home last week against the Ticats. The Riders haven't played and certainly were not good last year. I'll go with the Argonauts on the road. The Riders didn't do enough for me in the off-season player wise and I don't trust Durant anymore.
Argonauts 26 Roughriders 18

Winnipeg Blue Bombers at Calgary Stampeders
The Bombers won't have Dressler to help them this week, so that's pretty much it.
Stampeders 31 Blue Bombers 25
