CFL Pick 'Em, Week 15: It's Thanksgiving, and our standings are stuffed with as many surprises as this turkey is with bad metaphors. Ignore the cranberry stains and make your picks inside.

Winnipeg surprises everyone with a big win at home, and B.C. holds the fort with a tight win over the 'Riders. Montreal stays the course against the Argos, and Calgary kicks their way to a squeaker over the Ti-Cats.

This Thanksgiving weekend has it all: strength versus strength, middling versus middling, and somebody versus the Toronto Argonauts.


B.C. @ Edmonton (Friday, October 9) This is a HUGE game: either of these teams could host a playoff game, or cross over to the long road through the East. Edmonton has a home edge, but only slightly.

Toronto @ Saskatchewan (Saturday, October 10) Saskatchewan still has the division title in their sights, and something tells me they won't let the Argos get in their way.

Calgary @ Montreal (Monday, October 12) The two division leads square off. But le Stade Molson is a tough place to play in the fall; will Calgary still be a division leader at the end of the day?

Winnipeg @ Hamilton (Saturday, October 3) Do you believe in Miracles? A Winnipeg win would leave them tied for seconds in the East.

Good luck!

Gotta get this in.

Edmonton by 7 Saskatchewan by 15 Montreal by 13 Winnipeg by 10

I'm away for the next 2 weeks, out of email and phone contact. Can I just pick (in advance) Edmonton to win by 10 for both weeks, and for Hamilton to lose by 10 in both weeks, too?

Because that's pretty much been my strategy all season.

Edmonton by 6 (because Buck Pierce stunk last week but they gave him the Friday Night Gladiator anyway!)

Saskatchewan by 19 (because I'm realistic, and sure that many others will be this week as well re: Toronto)

Montreal by 15 (because Smilin' Hank aint too smiley lately)

Winnipeg by 8 (because I so hate the crossover and this would help diminish its likelihood)

BC by 4, Ed is not so formidable at home like they made out to be

Riders by 8, it should be closer than people think

Mont by 5, or a whole bunch depending on Burris & the de

If Glen plays then cats by 3, otherwise bombers could eek out a win.

these picks "inspired" by some of Canada's best wines ... live from the Okanagan and the Fall Wine Festival ... got me one helluva car ride to get back to E-town in time for kickoff tomorrow though ... but damn ... Canadian Football is great ... Canadian Wine ... now THERE is an export!!!

Edmonton by 11 ... they've just got to get back into form. I don't know who BC will have at QB either ... Buck's dinged.

I can't believe I'd even have to think about this one ... but desperate teams do desperate things. I wouldn't be surprised if Coach Botox doesn't can a few more naysayers before kickoff. Guy's a tool. Riders by 24.

Could be a blowout if Calgary and Burris haven't get their groove back yet. Could be a Grey Cup preview and a real gun-slingin' shootout. I am hoping to turns out to be one helluva ball game (sans Grey Cup preview though). Have to give a slight edge to the Als at home ... Montreal by 6.

Bombers run has been too good to be true. Sure, they've won a couple. TiCats are a better ball club that has just fizzled a bit of late. I'll give this one to the Tabbies by a healthy margin of 19.
