CFL Picks — Week 5

<p>The Stampeders went into Saskatchewan last Saturday and thoroughly crushed the Roughriders, and there's no question that Henry Burris and company are firing on all cylinders.</p>


FRIDAY, July 14:

Calgary at Hamilton


ODDSMAKERS' LINE:Calgary is favoured byfour points.

MARTY SAYS: The Stampeders went into Saskatchewan last Saturday and thoroughly crushed the Roughriders, and there's no question that Henry Burris and company are firing on all cylinders. And, yet, I have a hunch they're going to come up flat in this one. You know how it is after a club fires a coach. The Tiger-Cats will be trying to make an impression on their new coach, even thoughRon Lancaster is actuallytheir old coach, and they'll be fired up. This game should come down to a late field goal.



MARTY'S PICK: TAKE HAMILTON PLUS THEFOUR POINTS.





FRIDAY, July 14:

Saskatchewan at B.C.


ODDMSAKERS' LINE:B.C. is favoured bysix points.

MARTY SAYS: Here's what I've noticed about the Lions: They're terrific at home and so-so on the road. This one is at their home dome. The Saskatchewandefence, ranked second in the CFL last season,looked lost for most of last week against Calgary. They're in for a rough ride in this game, as well, just as they were in their season opener at B.C.



MARTY'S PICK: TAKE B.C. MINUS THESIXPOINTS.





SATURDAY, July 15:

Montreal at Winnipeg


ODDSMAKERS' LINE:Montreal is favoured by one point.

MARTY SAYS: This game pits the CFL's most improved team, the Blue Bombers, against the league's only undefeated team, the Alouettes. The Bombers have improved from dregs to kingpins quickly, and former Montreal assistant coach Doug Berry has excelled in his first season as the Bombers' head coach. He's the early-season candidate for coach of the year, and, with running back Charles Roberts starring,I suspect the Bombers will recorda major triumph in this one.



MARTY'S PICK: TAKEWINNIPEG PLUS THEONEPOINT.
