Smitty's Selections: Week 14

Are we really at Week 14 already? My God, this season has gone by very fast. There are only six weeks left in the CFL season, which means there are only 24 games remaining for me to potentially incorrectly pick. I say this because I posted a terrible 1-3 record last week. The Edmonton Eskimos beating the Toronto Argonauts is what saved me from an ignominious 0-4 week. Phew, thanks Edmonton.

Montreal (9-3) at Calgary (9-3)

This is likely to be the best game of the weekend. This might even be a Grey Cup preview. Calgary is coming into this game having lost two in a row, while Montreal escaped Winnipeg last week by the skin of their teeth (and with a little help from the refs). When two teams seem even, you take the home team.

Winner: Calgary, 34-31

Saskatchewan (8-4) at Toronto (6-6)

Everything is pointing towards an upset here. Toronto hasn't played well lately and will be without their starting QB (which for T.O. is a positive), and Saskatchewan is due for a letdown. The Riders have this tendency to lose when you think they should win. That said, I can't take the Argos.

Winner: Saskatchewan, 27-17

Winnipeg (3-9) at British Columbia (4-8)

If Winnipeg has any hope of making the playoffs, they MUST win this game. With it being unlikely that the Bombers will catch the Argos and Ti-Cats, they will need to cross over into the West bracket in order to see the post season. BC, while victorious last week, have not looked good since they beat Montreal on the Labour Day weekend.

Winner: Winnipeg, 34-26

Hamilton (6-6) at Edmonton (3-9)

Last week was a heartbreaker for the Tabbies. They had the Riders on the ropes, and let them steal one. Edmonton went further east to win a game than any team ever has for a regular-season contest. The Esks used Touchdown Atlantic to try and turn their season around. The Eskimos have been very consistent in letting themselves down after a big win. I expect that trend to continue this week.

Winner: Hamilton, 31-20

Calgary, Saskatchewan, Winnipeg, Hamilton

Season Record: 26-22
