CFL Picks — Week 15
The Eskimos are an awful team, in dire need of major changes, as illustrated by their loss to the woebegone Tiger-Cats in Hamilton last week. But surely they can muster up enough to tame the Cats on their home turf, can't they?
FRIDAY, Sept. 22:
Hamilton at Edmonton
ODDSMAKERS' LINE:Edmonton is favoured by6.5 points.
MARTY SAYS: The Eskimos are an awful team, in dire need of major changes, as illustrated by their loss to the woebegone Tiger-Cats in Hamilton last week. But surely they can muster up enough to tame the Cats on their home turf, can't they?
MARTY'S PICK: TAKEEDMONTON MINUS THE 6.5 POINTS.
SATURDAY, Sept. 23:
Toronto at Calgary
ODDSMAKERS' LINE:Calgary is favoured by 6.5 points
MARTY SAYS: The Argonauts have had a week off and will be well rested for this one. Ricky Williams will be back in the lineup (not a big deal) and this should be a very good game between two of the CFL's better teams. I think it'll be close, so. . .
MARTY'S PICK: TAKE TORONTO PLUS THE 6.5 POINTS
SUNDAY, Sept. 24
Winnipeg at Montreal
ODDSMAKERS' LINE:Montreal. is favoured by4.5 points.
MARTY SAYS: The Alouettes are slumping and playing some poor football, but the same can basically be said for the Blue Bombers, who aren't in sync at all. Look for the Als to bust out in a big way here, ending their losing streak at five.
MARTY'S PICK: TAKE MONTREAL MINUS THE 4.5 POINTS
SUNDAY, Sept. 24
B.C. at Saskatchewan
ODDSMAKER'S LINE: B.C. is favoured by 4.5 POINTS
MARTY SAYS: The Lions are undoubtedly the best team in the CFL, but they're due for a fall here. The Roughriders are very good on their home turf, when they are sparked by the most fervent fans in Canada, and they're rested. I smell an upset in this game.
MARTY'S PICK: TAKE SASKATCHEWAN PLUS THE 4.5 POINTS
Calgary 43, Winnipeg 9
Hamilton 27, Edmonton 22
B.C. 37, Montreal 20
Marty's record vs. the point spread last week: 3-0-0
