CFL Pick 'Em, Week Ten: Every game was a blowout last week, which is no fun. Well, I guess it's fun for the winning team. And their fans. But won't someone spare a thought for the poor Pick 'Em players? Shed a single tear and make your picks inside.

Blowouts across the board! Montreal stuns Ottawa, Calgary tramples B.C., Edmonton knocks around the Argos, and Hamilton just plain embarrasses Saskatchewan.

Tough week for spreads! If you got three points, slap yourself on the back.

"Who's going to be brave enough to pick Saskatchewan this week? Or any week, for that matter?"

... is what I wrote in Week 10 of the 2015 season, and it still applies.


B.C. @ Ottawa (Thursday, August 25)
Two would-be contenders coming off tough losses. Someone's gotta bounce back, and Trevor Harris is getting the start for the Redblacks.

Winnipeg @ Montreal (Friday, August 26)
Kevin Glenn's career renaissance continues as he faces off against his former team. Okay, to be fair, EVERY team is Kevin Glenn's former team.

Saskatchewan @ Edmonton (Friday, August 26)
See above.

Hamilton @ Calgary (Sunday, August 28)
Hamilton is one good week away from grabbing the division lead. All they have to do is beat the league's leading offence. And defence. In Calgary. Yeah.

Good luck!

OK, have to do this quickly. Game's about to start.

BC at Ottawa: Lions don't look good in red or black, but Ottawa won't make them wear anything. BC by 12.

We're at the end of the 4th quarter, and I still don't think you're too late

Now, where were we when we last checked in? Oh yes, I had just finished with dinner, it was trash night, the dishes needed to be done, and I had to clean and cover the grill. No time for football pick 'ems. So to continue the saga:

Winnipeg at Montreal: Little Larks will fly higher than the Bombers, and Winnipeg will indeed be Blue. Montreal by 8

Saskatchewan at Edmonton: Rough Riders are indeed in for a rough ride. Eskimos run them over with the dog sled. Remember, only the lead dog gets to see a change in scenery. Edmonton by 17

Hamilton at Calgary: It is not possible to make cats stampede, or make any other fast moves, unless they are in the mood. Tiger Cats are no exception. They will not be stampeded, but they will move quickly on the field. Hamilton by 11
