CFL Pick 'Em, Week 18: Did you score any points this week? Only if you were in Ontario, or possibly tied for third in the West division. Otherwise you're just outta luck with time running out. Spruce up your fortune and make your picks inside.

Who knew? Hamilton surprises everyone with a dominant performance over the Alouettes, and Toronto doesn't look half bad as they clich a playoff spot.

Out West, desperation wins out over seeding. B.C. gets it done on the road against Calgary, and Edmonton takes care of business at home, keeping them both in the playoff race. With the Roughriders' loss, Calgary backs into the division title.

Speaking of seeding, nobody seemed very interested in scoring any points this week. But JPR's rouge gets him ever so closer to tommytrump's once-insurmountable lead.

Scrubs? No scrubs? Who even knows.


Montreal @ Toronto (Friday, October 29)
Toronto needs to win two in a row against Montreal to get a shot at a home playoff game. Tough task—but Montreal just came off a stinker in Hamilton. So who knows?

Hamilton @ Calgary (Friday, October 29)
Motivation is quickly giving way to playoff preparation for both these teams, but Hamilton still has a magic number of 1 for a home playoff game. Do they get the edge over scrubs?

Winnipeg @ Edmonton (Saturday, October 30)
Edmonton, at home, still fighting for their playoff lives? Have to be the favourite over the Blue Bomber's auditions for next season.

Saskatchewan @ B.C. (Saturday, October 31)
B.C. also gets a home game to fight for the final playoff spot. With the 'Riders comfortably in second place, the Lions should be the favourite.

Good luck!

I've gotta nail some spreads if I'm gonna have a hope in this race. Realistically though, just gonna try to close out strong. Good luck to you two dueling it out for first.

Montreal misfired last week. That's a twist. Argos had a decent win too. This one's in T-Dot. Hmmm ... no wonder the spread's only three-and-a-half. Larks win but don't cover---by 2.

The Red & White need to start gettin' sharp for what will be one helluvva dogfight in the Western playoffs. Think they put their best foot forward in this one and win comfortably over a tough visiting TiCat squad. Stamps win and cover by 6.

It's hard to believe my eyes when I see the Double E favoured by more than a touchdown. It's harder to believe that I think they'll actually cover in this one. But I better let their track record speak for itself. Nah, on second though ... Bombers are d-o-n-e. EE by 23.

And here's where Edmonton gets a break. Samsquanch will need to get back on track to be ready for that dogfight I've already said will be the Western playoffs. BC sucks at home this year. Riders by 15.

Wacky finish in T-Dot. I checked the score with under 4 minutes remaining and the Argos were up by 7. We've said it before and we'll say it again, "You gotta love the CFL!"

I guess BC's decision to stay in a hotel and treat this as a road game broke their home curse.
