CFL Picks — Week 1

<p>The Alouettes, particularly at home, should still be a formidable force while the Blue Bombers have serious quarterbacking problems and lack confidence in Kevin Glenn.</p>


FRIDAY, June 16:

Winnipeg at Montreal


ODDSMAKERS' LINE: Montreal is favoured by nine points.

MARTY SAYS: The Alouettes, particularly at home, should still be a formidable force while the Blue Bombers have serious quarterbacking problems and lack confidence in Kevin Glenn. The opening game of the CFL season could just be a rout.



MARTY'S PICK: TAKE MONTREAL MINUS THE NINE POINTS.





FRIDAY, June 16:

Saskatchewan at B.C.


ODDMSAKERS' LINE: B.C. is favoured by 4.5 points.

MARTY SAYS: Before too long, I suspect the Roughriders will be challenging for top spot while the Lions will plunge to the bottom of the Western standing, but the home crowd in the opener will help Dave Dickenson and his first-rate receiving corps jump off to a nice start.



MARTY'S PICK: TAKE B.C. MINUS THE 4.5 POINTS.





SATURDAY, June 17:

Hamilton at Toronto


ODDSMAKERS' LINE: Toronto is favoured by 3.5 points.

MARTY SAYS: I've been saying for about a week now that I believe the Tiger-Cats are very much for real and will quickly demonstrate why they are the class of the Eastern Division this season. With newcomers Jason Maas, Terry Vaughn, Josh Ranek and Corey Holmes leading the way, I expect the Ticats to do a number on the Argonauts in this one.



MARTY'S PICK: TAKE HAMILTON PLUS THE 3.5 POINTS.





SATURDAY, June 17:

Edmonton at Calgary


ODDSMAKERS' LINE: Calgary is favoured by 3 points.

MARTY SAYS: Calgary running back Joffrey Reynolds should enjoy a productive evening against the Grey Cup champs, and I'm smelling a rather one-sided Battle of Alberta.



MARTY'S PICK: TAKE CALGARY MINUS THE THREE POINTS.


Marty's record vs. the point spread in 2006: 0-0-0
