It's my Parting Shot for the Fearless Predictor’s final week of C-F-L picks…
Last week, my Friday was great…not so much on Saturday! In other words, I picked Ottawa and the Riders victories, but missed out on B-C and Edmonton triumphs.
Week 20 begins with a nothing left to play for except pride Montreal at Hamilton game Friday night. This should be an easy result to pick as the home-standing Ticats waltz past the Alouettes by more than two touchdowns!
The second Friday game has Winnipeg in Calgary. Both teams are limping into the final week on two-game losing streaks. One team is going to head into the playoffs with three straight setbacks…and vulnerable in the post-season. The Stampeders will win by more than 10 points!
On Saturday, third and fourth place in the West will be decided when Edmonton visits Saskatchewan. The difference is, if the Blue Bombers lose Friday in Calgary, the Eskimos can grab second place and home-field for the West semi-final with a win…which they will get by less than a field goal!
The last contest of the regular-season has Toronto in B-C. The Argonauts can finish first and get a bye into the Eastern final with a win. B-C seemed to enjoy being spoilers against Winnipeg last week. I’m going with the Lions by more than a touchdown!
My overall record is 48-and-29, or 62.3%. Two correct picks gives me the nice, round number of 50…but that would only be 61.7%. A perfect week would get me to 64.2%.
I’ll take 50 correct picks…minimum!
That's my Parting Shot. I’m Les Lazaruk in Lethbridge…
