THURSDAY, June 29:

Hamilton at Calgary

 

ODDSMAKERS' LINE: Calgary is favoured byfive points.

MARTY SAYS: I picked these two teams to meet in the Grey Cup game next November. Could still happen, I guess, but the Tiger-Cats are very slow out of the gate and their offence under new offensive co-ordinator Joe Paopao is doing diddly-squat. Jason Maas doesn't look comfortable. Josh Ranek looks lost. Against John Grace, Brian Clark and the first-rate defence in Calgary, this could be a very long night for the Ticats.

 


MARTY'S PICK: TAKE CALGARY MINUS THEFIVE POINTS.

 




FRIDAY, June 30:

Toronto at B.C.


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

MARTY SAYS: Spergon Wynn, Damon Allen's backup with the Argonauts,demonstrated last weekagainst Winnipeg why he was the Blue Bombers' fourth-string quarterback last season. His offensive line didn't help him out much, either, yielding six sacks. And Ricky Williams is turning out to be just what I anticipated -- not much. He's notproviding much in the way of rushing, receiving or blocking. He's turning out to be an overhyped suspended NFLer. And, taking advantage of the time-zone difference, the Lions will betearing apartWilliams and the Argos in this one.



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





SATURDAY, June 31:

Edmonton at Winnipeg


ODDSMAKERS' LINE:Edmonton is favoured by3.5 points.

MARTY SAYS: Ricky Ray, Jason Tucker and the rest of the Eskimos' offence came alive in their second half last week, but I'll let you in on a little secret now: The Bombers' defence is terrific. Barrin Simpson, Doug Brown et al should be able to keep the Esks in check on their home turf.



MARTY'S PICK: TAKEWINNIPEG PLUS THE3.5 POINTS.





RESULTS OF WEEK 2:



Winnipeg 16, Toronto 9



Montreal 32, Hamilton 14



Edmonton 18, Calgary 14



Saskatchewan 32, B.C. 24



Marty's record vs. the point spread last week: 2-1-1
