WEEK 18 CFL Predictor:

Well depending on how you look at it the Montreal Alouettes surprised me or the Toronto Argonauts tripped me up. Regardless my prediction of Toronto topping Montreal was my only wrong prognostication of the week.

So a 3-and-1 week 17 brings my overall record to 46-23 for the season.

Still striving for perfection here are my week 18 picks!

Montreal Alouettes (7-8 T1st in East) LW: 20-12 win at Toronto
at
Ottawa REDBLACKS (2-13 4th in East) LW: 16-6 loss at Hamilton

Emotions will be high in Ottawa and will be very powerful. Meanwhile, the Montreal Alouettes are rolling and seem to be a force to be reckoned with down the stretch. My heart says go with the REBLACKS to complete the story book ending but my head says take the Als. In this instance the heart is going to win out and I say the REDBLACKS win 24-22, heck even on a last second field-goal. Why not?

Saskatchewan Roughriders (9-7 3rd in West) LW: 24-19 loss vs. Edmonton
at
Calgary Stampeders (13-2 1st In West) LW: 33-23 win at Winnipeg

Neither team has a lot to play for in this one. If there is a team with more at stake that’s the Riders who want to secure third in the west. Additionally, the Green and White need their offence to take another step forward with Kerry Joseph at the helm. That being said I can’t see the Riders depleted roster stealing one in Cowtown. Take the Stamps to win 26-17.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats (7-8 T1st in East) LW: 16-6 win vs. Ottawa
at
Toronto Argonauts (6-9 3rd in East) LW: 20-12 loss vs. Montreal

By far this contest is the most intriguing game of the weekend. The Argos are hit and miss while the Tiger-Cats seem to be coming on. That being said, it was just two weeks ago that Toronto executed the biggest come-from-behind win of the season. That’s why I give the Argos the edge and win 31-20.

BC Lions (8-7 4th in West) LW: Bye
at
Winnipeg Blue Bombers LW: 33-23 loss vs. Calgary

The final game of the week is a must win for both teams. The BC Lions need to find a way to lock up a play-off spot while Winnipeg is still looking to end their late season struggles. The Lions are the better team and with the disgruntled fan base in Winnipeg being a non-factor I can see the Lions walking in and taking away a 32-10 win.
