CFL Pick 'Em, Week Seven: No spreads nailed this week, but that's largely because Hamilton lost by 59 points. Don't move to Hamilton, kids. Fight that rent increase and make your picks inside.

Drama in the Peg as Montreal squanders a 12-point lead with two minutes to go. B.C. hangs tough in Edmonton, but it's the home side that pulls away for the win. Kevin Glenn fulfils the prophecies, while Hamilton... uh... loses.

This week, we come dangerously close to using math.


Calgary @ Toronto (Thursday, August 3)
Trend: Toronto is 3-0 against the East and 0-3 against the West. That is not ideal when playing Calgary.

Winnipeg @ Ottawa (Friday, August 4)
Ottawa's gotta be due, right? They're 1-4-1 but haven't lost any game by more than five points.

Hamilton @ Edmonton (Friday, August 4)
Trend: Edmonton is undefeated! Hamilton is winless! So naturally Hamilton will win this game by 21 points.

Saskatchewan @ B.C. (Saturday, August 5)
I'm going to start calculating Saskatchewan's odds based on the number of games Kevin Glenn played for the opposing team. Glenn played 18 games for the Lions in 2014, so I give B.C. 8-1 odds this week.

Good luck!

This week, we come dangerously close to using math.

And I come dangerously close to using meth. My picks are terrible.

I'd rather not discuss that abomination of a prevent defense Montreal showed. Made me regret watching whatever ESPN channel I was watching.

On a nice quiet evening here in New Hampshire it is time to once again make some picks. After some of the shenanigans we witnessed last week, we wonder if it is really possible to apply any logical reasoning to making your choices. Perhaps gathering the cats together and having them decide would be good. Last time I did that they would pick only Hamilton Tigercats and BC Lions, so that didn't work too well.

The Stampede obliterated Hamilton last week, but can they run over Toronto in the same manner? It won't be a 59 point margin, but it won't exactly be a cliff hanger either. Calgary by 18

What just happened part 1: Montreal looked like there's no way Blue Bombers could come back on them, but all of a sudden it's a one-point win for the Bombers If Ottawa gets a lead, their defense should try to use barbed wire, claymore mines, and perhaps some armored vehicles. Winnipeg by 6

What just happened part 2: Edmonton is leaving the door wide open for a BC upset, but then the universe rights itself and Edmonton pulls away. In the meantime, Hamilton begins to wonder if not showing up would have been a good option last week. I'm not sure there is enough left of Hamilton to show up this week. Edmonton by 17

For better than 3 quarters BC was in top form. Then Edmonton put up the stop sign, and BC obeyed. Rough Riders do not have any signs to show, so Lions will not slow down. BC by 14

finally there will not be a flag fest of calls that disrupt the flow of the games, way to go CFL, now we just got a wait till the end of the season to sort out command centre and their bogus decisions.

reluctantly, Calgary by eight, come on Argos prove me wrong and beat a western team

Ottawa by a field goal, they're bound to turn the corner soon and go on a winning streak, but no rush

Lions by a field goal, or more

Eddie by 12, sorry pussycats, no I'm not. LOL
