CFL Pick 'Em, Week Twenty: It's the final week of the 2016 season, and yes, there is math involved. Grab your slide rule and make your picks inside.

Edmonton holds off a fourth-quarter surge from the Ti-Cats to stay in the race. Ottawa helps them out by keeping the Bombers at ten wins, and - oh yeah - clinches the East Division in the process. Saskatchewan returns to business as usual, only managing six points in a loss to the Lions. Calgary, with the division secured, rests Bo-Levi Mitchell and suffers their first loss since Week 1.

It's down to bender and jags for the Costanza, and it's going to take a great week from bender to wrestle the trophy away from him.

Last week of the season and I've got the CFL Tiebreaker Rules open in a browser tab. The way it should be.


Winnipeg @ Ottawa (Friday, November 4)
Ottawa's clinched, so look for their starters to get some rest. Meanwhile, Winnipeg still has a shot to grab a home playoff game, but they need to win - preferably by a bunch - to do it.

Montreal @ Hamilton (Saturday, November 5)
Hamilton's in and Montreal's out, so I'm sure some kids will get a chance to deal with the howling November winds at the former Ivor Wynne.

Toronto @ Edmonton (Saturday, November 5)
Edmonton's got the crossover, but could still move up with a win, plus a Winnipeg loss. Meanwhile, the Argos... welp.

Saskatchewan @ B.C. (Sunday, November 5)
This one could go either way. If Winnipeg lose on Friday, B.C. clinches the home playoff spot. If Winnipeg wins, B.C. will be fighting off the challenge. Might want to hold your pick until Saturday.

Good luck!

I'll probably change the last pick if Winnipeg loses.

Our attention shifts to the land to the north as we attempt to act like an expert. Depending on what happens Tuesday I might just try to see if some of my Nova Scotian cousins might sponsor me for residence there.

Winnipeg at Ottawa: Once again the clash of the colors; blue versus red and black. Winnipeg might try to run the score a bit, but the checkered shirt group will not allow that. Winnipeg by 12

Montreal at Hamilton: Cat against bird here, and the bird's wings are in bad shape. Little birdie is a quick snack for the Tiger Cat. Hamilton by 16

Toronto at Edmonton: The Argonauts have about as much chance against the Eskimos as a drunken sailor has against a hostess in a Yokohama bar. Edmonton by 18

Saskatchewan at BC: Yes, I could hold the pick until Saturday. Would I be any smarter on Saturday? Doubtful. Consensus seems to be Lions; I am not of a contrary nature. BC by 14
