CFL Pick 'Em, Week Nineteen: Between the five of them, two of Calgary, Saskatchewan, Winnipeg, tommytrump, and jagsnumberone will win the West Division and our little Pick 'Em. But which two? Your guess is as good as mine. Put on your thinking caps and make your picks inside.

Toronto holds off the Ottawa comeback to notch a rare win. Calgary hangs on for the win against the Riders to move into first place. Winnipeg solves the Montreal mystery, while Edmonton keeps the Lions out of the end zone.

Three! Weeks! Left!


Toronto @ Montreal (Friday, October 18)
Montreal's locked into second place and a home semi-final. Do they rest the big guns? That would depend on knowing exactly who the big guns are.

Saskatchewan @ B.C. (Friday, October 18)
The Riders got knocked out of first place, but a visit to B.C. might get them right back.

Ottawa @ Hamilton (Saturday, October 19)
Can't we just sim the rest of the East-vs-East games?

Winnipeg @ Calgary (Saturday, October 19)
Uhh if Winnipeg wins and Saskatchewan loses, the Bombers are back in first place. That can't be right, can it?

Good luck!

How did that happen? I picked all 4 correctly and got inside Marge (that's Marge Innovera, my favorite statistician) 3 times. I am no longer living in the CFL Pick 'em's basement, but not by much. My best effort is needed.

Your weird aunt from the neighboring province is visiting, and she has some strange food preferences. Your family wants a certain dish for dinner, but Auntie doesn't like it. If you're smart, you will please the home folks. Montreal by 12

The Canadian equivalent of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals will investigate Lion abuse after this one. Saskatchewan by 17

The odor emanating from Hamilton is not caused by any industrial source. It has been traced to the stadium. Hamilton by 9

Bombers might have aspirations to gain first place, but Riders just aren't going to lose. Winnipeg by 10

I violated the sanctity of the Costanza by not picking this week. Apologies to our friends from the North.

Looks like I did, too.
