Toronto Argonauts (10-8) @ Hamilton Tiger-Cats (10-8) (Sunday, November 15, 1:00pm ET)

Somehow it always seems to come down to these two teams (although in a nine-team league, maybe not so much of a surprise). The Ti-Cats are 3-0 against the Argos this year. BUT: each of those games came earlier in the year, with Zach Collaros at QB for Hamilton and Ricky Ray on the sidelines for Toronto. Now Collaros is out for the season, and Ricky Ray is back and looking just about like the Hall of Famer that he is. How much is a quarterback worth? Eastern Semi-Final Preview

B.C. Lions (7-11) @ Calgary Stampeders (14-4) (Sunday, November 15, 4:30pm ET)

On paper, this is a mismatch. Calgary was just edged out for the division title, and was easily the second-best team in the league this season. B.C. was lucky to fend off a crossover challenge and just barely snuck into the playoffs. But anything can happen in one-game elimination. And even better: half a foot of snow is scheduld to drop on Calgary this Sunday. Western Semi-Final Preview

Yes, I'm re-using last year's bonus names. But intentionally! Just look at that fish!

Swayze Waters River Salmon Bonus

Pick the kicker who will score the most points this weekend. That includes place-kick field goals, drop-kick field goals, PATs, singles, and fake field goals thrown for touchdowns.

2015 Kicking Stats

Las Vegas Posse Memorial Bonus

The combined over/under on total points scored for both games is 100.5. Will the actual number of points scored this weekend be OVER or UNDER that total?

Example pick: Hamilton by 21, B.C. by 14, Leone, Over.

Good luck!

The regular season means nothing, I say, nothing if I can't get a championship in the playoffs (ok, maybe not). Here goes nothing.

Toronto by 10 (Tough to pick against the Ti-Cats but without Zach they haven't been the same)

Calgary by 17

Paredes (Calgary's kicker)

Over on the points.

I can't get credit for the over/under, but without seeing the first game score I say under.
