Smitty's Selections: Week 8

I'm on a bit of a mini roll here, as I posted my third consecutive 3-1 week in Week 7. I won't do that this week, because there are only two games. But if I can go 3-1 over the next two weeks, I'll be happy.

Saskatchewan at Toronto

Two 1-6 teams square off in what some people are calling The Toilet Bowl. These two teams are struggling right now. The Riders' lone win, which came in Montreal, is looking like a giant fluke right now. They look like they have no idea how to fix their problems. The Argos haven't won since Week 1 in Calgary, but they did look good in defeat last week. Cleo Lemon posted great numbers for the second week in a row, and it is possible that the light has turned on for the second-year Argo pivot. All that, plus the game being in Toronto, adds up to an Argonaut victory.

Winner: Toronto, 24-14

British Columbia at Edmonton

The other 1-6 team, the BC Lions, take on a reeling Eskimos squad that has lost their last two games after starting the season 5-0. The Lions, like the Riders, look lost. Nothing is going their way, and the addition of Arland Bruce did nothing for them against Winnipeg. The Eskimos have seemingly lost their entire receiving corps, but they did sign Prechae Rodriguez, and Adarius Bowman might return. That would give the Esks something. Regardless, BC just looks bad right now, and it's hard to bet against the Eskimos at home. Eskies take this one.

Winner: Edmonton, 31-19

Toronto, Edmonton

Season Record: 16-12
