CFL Pick 'Em, Week 6: One-point victories on the field make wins exciting but pick 'em movement hard. It's bye week time, so make half of your picks inside.

Well, how about that: one-point victories by Winnipeg and Hamilton, and a cunning three-point win by Toronto in Montreal. Oh yeah, and Calgary didn't do so well at home to the Lions.

Tight margins make for a tough week. apoch squeezes out two points to move into a tie for first, while YYM picks up four to move back into contention.

Heading into the first bye week, nobody's a favourite.


Montreal @ Winnipeg (Friday, August 3)
Montreal has rarely found itself with a losing record this late in the season. Maybe a trip to Winnipeg is just what they need to get cheered up.

B.C. @ Toronto (Monday, August 6)
Two 3-2 teams looking to take the lead in their respective divisions. B.C. is coming off a laugher in Calgary, and Toronto just notched a gut-check win in Montreal. Gotta be a coin toss.

Good luck!

It's bye week time, and that means we have half of the opportunity to screw up. This week's games give the appearance of being easy to predict, but when is it ever so?

Montreal at Winnipeg: I see little hope for the Bombers, but then they're playing Alouettes. If there is an opportunity for Winnipeg to get a win, it is this one. I'll take Winnipeg by 6.

BC at Toronto: Toronto has shown occasional flashes of competence, but none of consistency. BC has also tended to go in fits and starts, but has been far more convincing. This one has BC beginning to show its form and winning by 12.
