Montreal at Ottawa
The Alouettes seem in disarray. The REDBLACKS haven't played for a while and Ottawa is at home. Seems like an easy pick.
REDBLACKS 35 Alouettes 27
Calgary at BC
This one is interesting. Calgary has the best record in the league this year, but they haven't struck me as fantastic, more the beneficiary of being consistently competent while other teams are more hit and miss. BC has been the big surprise with strong play at quarterback with Jennings and the linebacker tandem of Elimimian and Bighill. I think the Lions take this one at home.
Lions 28 Stampeders 27
Edmonton at Toronto
Still no Ricky Ray for Toronto, so one has to lean towards the Eskimos and a healthy Mike Reilly. Toronto has a reasonable defence, but not much of a home crowd.
Eskimos 22 Argonauts 18
Saskatchewan at Hamilton
Things are not right in Riderville, both on the field and in the front office. The Tiger-Cats are coming off a close game in BC they came from way back to tie with Zach Collaros in his first appearance in 2016. Collaros looked hot in the second half and actually made C.J. Gable part of the Ticat offense rather than an afterthought. The Ticats should be stronger in Collaros' second game of the year.
