2017 CFL Predictions Week 2

Ottawa at Calgary
The Stamps at home are too much, even though Ottawa is looking decent this season.
Stampeders 29 REDBLACKS 24

BC at Toronto
The Argonauts are looking good. Not many paying fans, but you can't have everything. BC I'm meh about this year.
Argonauts 26 Lions 19

Montreal at Edmonton
Alouettes won last week at home versus the Riders but on the road versus Edmonton is totally different and a loss.
Eskimos 33 Alouettes 19

Winnipeg at Saskatchewan
The Riders are at home and the Bombers haven't played a regular season game yet. The Riders have to show my they can win before I pick them.
Blue Bombers 21 Rough Riders 19

2017 CFL Week 1 Power Rankings

1. Calgary Stampeders
Tied Ottawa away. Calgary still looking good.

Wasn't sure that Ottawa still had it after winning the Grey Cup last year. But tying Calgary at home is a good sign.

3. Edmonton Eskimos
Beat BC in BC. Mike Reilly unhurt.

4. BC Lions
It was close against the Eskimos. And they still have Wally Buono as coach.

5. Toronto Argonauts
Looked excellent at home versus Hamilton. Hiring Trestman and Popp seems to have worked out for Toronto. Ricky Ray unhurt.

6. Montreal Alouettes
Not really sure about Montreal but they beat the Riders, so that's something.

7. Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Didn't play so not a lot to go on.

8. Saskatchewan Roughriders
Still losing in 2017. But it was close.

9. Hamilton Tiger-Cats
Looked awful and had some critical injuries like Tolliver out for the season. Collaros unhurt.

2017 CFL Week 1 Predictions

Saskatchewan at Montreal
Bit of a dud for the first game of the season. Uh the Alouettes maybe?
Alouettes 12 Riders 11

Calgary at Ottawa
I think the Stamps win the rematch. Ottawa lost a lot over the off-season
Stampeders 29 REDBLACKS 22

Edmonton at BC
BC just tends to win at home.
Lions 24 Eskimos 19

Hamilton at Toronto
With Collaros healthy, there's a lot of receiver weapons for Hamilton. Defence should be OK.
Tiger-Cats 22 Argonauts 18

2017 CFL Power Rankings Week 0

1. Calgary Stampeders
They still have Bo Levi Mitchell.

2. Edmonton Eskimos
Mike Reilly is still healthy at this point.

3. Hamilton Tiger-Cats
Zach Collaros is also healthy at this point.

4. BC Lions
Wally Buono as coach just always seems to have a decent team.

Sure they won last year. Is Trevor Harris good? Not exactly sure.

6. Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Probably not last this year.

7.Toronto Argonauts
Ricky Ray might be healthy at this point. Trestmant is probably good for a few victories.

8. Montreal Alouettes
Darian Durant. Really?

9. Saskatchewan Roughriders
Bad times in Riderville
