CFL Pick 'Em, Week Thirteen: We're into the home stretch and some bets are looking smarter than others. Calgary looks solid. rcade is in good shape. Ottawa... well, maybe don't open your wallets just yet. But it won't cost you a cent to make your picks inside.

Montreal puts up a fight, but B.C. prevails at home. Saskatchewan loses another close one, this time in Winnipeg. Calgary holds off the Esks, while Toronto overcomes adversity (and another injury to Ricky Ray) to notch a big win over the Ti-Cats.

It's another week, right after the last one!


Montreal @ Hamilton (Friday, September 16)
The rebuild is underway in Montreal, with the Alouettes shipping out Kevin Glenn to the Blue Bombers. Meanwhile, Hamilton is smarting from a tough loss last week and will be looking to get back into the race for first.

Toronto @ Winnipeg (Saturday, September 17)
Speaking of Kevin Glenn! Drew Willy will face his former team right off the bat, which will make for some interesting television narratives, I'm sure. But the real story is that the Argos are 0-436 against Kevin Glenn. Or at least that's what it feels like.

Ottawa @ Calgary (Saturday, September 17)
Technically, this is a match-up of first place teams. Calgary is 9-1-1 and +120. Ottawa is 5-4-1 and +7. So, there's that.

Edmonton @ Saskatchewan (Sunday, September 18)
Edmonton's in tough, but a win in Saskatchewan and we can start talking crossover. Meanwhile, will the Riders fall short of their 3-15 record from last year?

Good luck!

I feel as if I have fallen to the bottom of the basket of deplorables. Am I irredeemable? Of course. What is the use of being deplorable if one has to try to be redeemed. Here are my picks, and if they are accurate, I will try not to trump my success.

Montreal at Hamilton: Have Les Allouettes decided to emulate their forebears at Louisbourg in 1758? It will not take a siege of 6 weeks this time. Hamilton by 12

Toronto at Winnipeg: Argonauts sailed to victory on Lake Ontario last week, but unless they have a prairie schooner, they face an ill wind in Winnipeg. Blue Bombers, on the other hand, might try out a new pilot. Will he be able to land safely? Winnipeg by 10

Ottawa at Calgary: Redblacks will feel blue after encountering the Stampede. Calgary by 9

Edmonton at Saskatchewan: This is a rough year for the Rough Riders. Can they find some smooth sledding against Eskimos? I doubt it. Edmonton by 16

Glenn's team is 56-12 all-time against Willy's team when neither plays.

(Also I'm giving LeFevour until the second quarter to get yanked.)
