66.9% - Hamilton
HAM 20 EDM 35.
These two teams played back on September 15th and the final was Hamilton 51, Edmonton 8. Now the Eskimos will review that video in detail and learn from those mistakes. And the Ticats will review that video and gain confidence. I have no idea which Ticat team will show up Friday night; the one that is so completely dominant at home or the one that is so ineffective on the road. But I do know that the QB problems in Edmonton are significant and if it is close, I will take Henry Burris. Very tough season for Edmonton considering they have lost four games by two points or less. May happen again. Hamilton 28, Edmonton 25

76.7% - B.C.
CGY 22 BC 27.
Have the Lions regressed? Not really, it is more that they just did not make that critical play in the fourth quarter last week as they have the previous two weeks. Great running back battle in this game with Jon Cornish facing Andrew Harris. Is one better than the other? If so, the difference is minute. In the end, B.C. wants that homefield advantage come September and the greatest threat is coming from Calgary. Stampeders 26, Lions 34

92.8% - Montreal
WPG 27 MTL 22.
Well, can't see the upset. Not so much in that Winnipeg has QB problems, more that Montreal lost in Hamilton in a significant way. Credit Hamilton for executing at a high level and holding Anthony Calvillo to under 200 yards in passing and playing an excellent game, but I would be very surprised if Montreal did not respond this week and the Bombers being the victim. Bombers 17, Montreal 38

61.5% - Saskatchewan
SSK 36 TOR 10.
Very good response to opportunity with Jarious Jackson at QB for the Argos. It takes a lot of pressure off the Argos to get Ricky Ray back fast, or make that faster. The Riders have two challanges to over come. The have already lost two games to Calgary so to finish second, they have to "win" more games than Calgary to have a homefield in first round of the playoffs. The second will be the injury to Jock Sanders, the complimentary back to Kory Sheets, who has improved the Rider offence in terms of speed and play calling options. This is a tough one to pick and it will be close. Saskatchewan 25, Toronto 24
