55.4% - Montreal
MTL 36 WPG 26.
This is a tough one as I never thought the Als would lose three in a row and now I think it may be four. Amazing improvement from Alex Brink and so important as it gives the Bombers hope for the next 13 games. Ray last week picked apart Montreal with his passing and although I don't think Brink will equal Ray's excellence, he has played well against Montreal in the past. Maybe it is time to say the Alouettes are rebuilding. No Anwar Stewart, Eric Wilson, Kitwana Jones, Ramon Guzman, Etienne Boulay, Diamond Ferri, Jermaine McElveen or Mark Estelle. That is just on defense. Logic says Als big, four in a row, not possible? But the Bombers used home field well in the win against Edmonton. I think they can do it again... Montreal 25, Winnipeg 31.

72.1% - B.C.
BC 18 TOR 9.
Both teams will have exceptional preparation time as this one is played on 'holiday Monday'. A unique home coming for Mike Benevides, as his youth as a player is a short distance from Rogers Centre and his team is coming off a great win over Calgary. But... I sense that Toronto is going to continue to improve. The players have really accepted the coaching of Milanovich, Chris Jones and Mike O'Shea, and soon the assignments and adjustments will be pure reaction with no thinking . If in B.C., I would take the Lions, but it is not... B.C. 32, Toronto 33.
