CFL Pick 'Em, Week 8: It's a tiebreaker week as the logjam at the top gets shattered. No such luck in the CFL standings though. Hedge your bets and make your picks inside.

Back to a full slate of games this week, with all the grudge therein.


Hamilton @ Winnipeg (Thursday, August 16)
Hamilton's been their usual inconsistent self this year, but Winnipeg has just been plain awful. Take the points, and hide them somewhere safe.

Montreal @ Edmonton (Friday, August 17)
Is Edmonton creaking back to life? Will Commonwealth Stadium infuse them with energy? Can Stephen Jyles really beat Anthony Calvillo? I'm still not convinced.

Toronto @ Calgary (Saturday, August 18)
Toronto's gone six consecutive quarters without a touchdown, and Calgary leads the league in points scored. This could be a tough one.

Saskatchewan @ B.C. (Sunday, August 19)
Saskatchewan is last in the West. If they were in the East, they would be tied for first. You do the math.

Good luck!

Now for the rest of the story (that line has been used by somebody, I know):

Montreal at Edmonton: I just can't see Alouettes going west and knocking off Eskimos. Edmonton by 11.

Toronto at Calgary: Argos held off the Stamps by 3 in Toronto. I look for a reversal of the verdict in Calgary. Stampeders by 3.

Saskatchewan at BC: This might be a case of "how much?" rather than "who?" Saskatchewan has a chance, but not much of a chance. Watch the Lions fall apart now. BC by 14.

Just a quickie for tonight's game, and I'll make the rest tomorrow.

Hamilton by 8.

Did I say that? I really meant Winnipeg.

Nice try, Howard, but at least you almost nailed the spread.
