74.1% - Calgary
BC 26 CGY 40.
Calgary leads the West with 11 wins and remarkably only three losses. They also lead the league in points scored with 446. Still, they are playing a Lions team coming off a tough loss to the rejuvenated Riders. Thomas DeMarco has been a nice surprise at quarterback and logic says the Lions don't lose two in a row. This one could go either way but the pressure is on. Lions in a close one

94.3% - Saskatchewan
EDM 9 SSK 14.
I can't see the upset happening, I just can't. Head coach Corey Chamblin will keep the pressure on, indicated by trading Patrick Nuefeld for a good pass rusher in Alex Hall. Now that it is October, the reality of the possibility of playing in the Grey Cup at Mosaic Stadium should create a focus for this team that is surreal. There is no reason they lose this game because if they do, it will haunt them. For the Riders, it is all in front of them, take it.

93.3% - Montreal
WPG 34 MTL 27.
Montreal is a scary team. The best defensive player in CFL football is Kyries Hebert. A close second is Chip Cox, then Shea Emry and my rookie of the year just may be Mike Edem. You can go a long way on defence as it is reactive, not pre-meditated like offence. Montreal is excellent on one side of the ball and improving on the other two sides. Take Montreal

51.0% - Hamilton
TOR 18 HAM 24.
The best thing to happen to Argonauts football is Scott Milanovich. As a head coach, he has a presence and professionalism that exudes what a head coach should be like. The best thing to happen to Ticat fooball is Kent Austin. He has a focus and a level of mental toughness that is unique. They are two very good football coaches. Will Ray start? We won't know until hours before. Ticats by 3
