CFL Pick 'Em, Week Eighteen: The logjam is finally broken and one man stands alone. Not you? Better get cracking—only three weeks left to play. Flip your calendar and make your picks inside.

In what was almost the most shocking upset of the season, Calgary almost lost in Hamilton (but didn't). Ottawa finally lands on the right side of the coin, winning a squeaker. Winnipeg gets the edge on the Lions to clinch a playoff spot, while Toronto snatches defeat from the jaws of victory. I promise to use that phrase only once a season.

Reever nails the Winnipeg spread to take sole possession of first place, with room to spare.

Three weeks left and anything's possible! Except Hamilton crossing over to the west. That seems unlikely.


Saskatchewan @ Calgary (Friday, October 20)
Calgary's on one heckuva run but they haven't clinched the division yet. Look for them to keep their foot on the gas until they do.

Winnipeg @ Toronto (Saturday, October 21)
Right in Calgary's rear view mirror is Winnipeg, surprise winners of four of their last five. But who knows? Maybe Toronto will decide to be good this week. They've been doing that more often lately.

Edmonton @ B.C. (Saturday, October 21)
A tale of two longshots: Edmonton's gazing wistfully at a home playoff berth, while B.C. still has a mathematical possibility of scraping into the crossover spot. Not what I call compelling drama.

Hamilton @ Montreal (Sunday, October 22)
This game is also being played.

Good luck!

Not to be a pain from last week (OK, I'm a pain!), I got the two extra points this week; I didn't get the two extra points for hitting Edm-Mtl spread the previous week.

jjzucal, I posted corrected standings in last week's thread. The total was correct but the "This Week Points" wasn't - copy/paste error.
