THURSDAY, July 6:
Hamilton at Montreal
ODDSMAKERS' LINE:Montreal is favoured by11 points.
MARTY SAYS: The Alouettes have played well and are coming off a week's rest, but there's something that still tells me the winless Tiger-Cats are going to establish themselves as competitive and I think this could be the week. With Cory Holmes returning from his ankle injury, the Ticats may not win, but they'll at least keep close. So. . .
MARTY'S PICK: TAKE HAMILTON PLUS THE11 POINTS.
FRIDAY, July 7:
B.C. at Edmonton
ODDMSAKERS' LINE:Edmonton is favoured bytwo points.
MARTY SAYS: Clearly, the Lions are better in their den than on the road, but this Eskimos squad has deteriorated badly and seems terribly confused, not to mention incompetent. I wish Ricky Ray no harm, obviously, but there's a question that keeps popping into my head. What happens if he gets hurt? And the answer is: Somebody named Jason Johnson takes over. Ugh.
MARTY'S PICK: TAKE B.C.PLUS THETWOPOINTS.
SATURDAY, July 8:
Winnipeg at Toronto:
ODDSMAKERS' LINE:Toronto is favoured by1.5 points.
MARTY SAYS: Home teams are 10-1 going into this weekend. I think the Argos are sliding and the Blue Bombers are on the upswing, but it may be a bit too soon to suggest Winnipeg can pull off an upset in Toronto.
MARTY'S PICK: TAKETORONTO MINUS THE 1.5POINTS.
SATURDAY, July 8:
ODDSMAKERS' LINE:Saskatchewan is favoured by2.5 points.
MARTY SAYS: The Roughriders looked good at home a couple of weeks ago, and they've been resting ever since. Kerry Joseph, Kenton Keith et al should come out smoking in this one. And I suspect it'll be a long night for Henry Burris and the rest of the Stampeders.
MARTY'S PICK: TAKESASKATCHEWAN MINUS THE 2.5POINTS.
RESULTS OF WEEK 3:
Calgary 23, Hamilton 22
B.C. 26, Toronto 19
Winnipeg 46, Edmonton 10
