CFL Pick 'Em, Week 18: Second-last week! Keep up that jostling! Nothing is settled yet! At least, nothing west of Brandon, MB. Make your picks inside.
The CFL seems to be saving its most entertaining moments for last. B.C. takes out Edmonton, and wins by enough to ensure a victory in the season seriesa point which could easily come into play. Montreal puts Toronto out of its misery. Calgary rolls at home, hanging onto that first-round bye. And Saskatchewan almost gets knocked out of the race by Hamilton, but gears up and comes from behind to hang onto the second-place tie.

tommy rebounds with a fine five-point week to put some much-needed distance between himself and owlhouse. Contention for the Costanza is vicious as well: Monica rings up four points, but Anaconda nails the Montreal spread to increase the margin to three points. Also, some nut lucked into an eight-point week.

Almost every game this week features a team with something to play for. Almost. Also, the playoff situation in the West is pretty convoluted, so bear with me here.
Calgary @ Hamilton (Friday, October 24)
Hamilton looked pretty good last week, eh? But Calgary won its season series with both B.C. and Saskatchewan, which means that a win this week clinches first place and avoids making next week's B.C. match-up more meaningful than they want it to be.
Edmonton @ Saskatchewan (Saturday, October 25)
Both of these teams are still in the mix, but they've both been maddeningly inconsistent in the second half. Chances are good that the loser this week does the crossover dance, so make this a big coin toss.
Toronto @ B.C. (Saturday, October 25)
B.C.'s been looking good, and are still in the race for first. Toronto's been looking miserable. That probably won't change.
Winnipeg @ Montreal (Sunday, October 26)
Both teams have clinched their respective playoff berths and should theoretically have nothing left to play for. Except that Montreal doesn't seem to be capable of taking their foot off the gas.
