CFL Pick 'Em, Week 11: It's the back half of the traditional Labour Day home-and-home, which means that if you forget to make your picks, I'll just re-use your picks from last week. Talk about a labour saving device! Put down your hammers and make your picks inside.

Hamilton makes it close but B.C. holds on for the win at home. Winnipeg finally scores some points, but lets in a whole bunch more in Saskatchewan. Edmonton makes a game of it but can't complete the comeback in Calgary, while what Montreal and Toronto played could barely be called a game.

Traditionally, schedulemakers had to work Labour Day but got the following weekend off. That's how we ended up with the annual post-Labour-Day home-and-home!


Calgary @ Edmonton (Friday, September 6)
Edmonton's seven-game losing streak is nearly not as bad as it looks: that's four straight games they've lost by no more than three points. And playing your provincial rival at home isn't a bad place to stop a streak.

B.C. @ Hamilton (Saturday, September 7)
Hamilton actually looked pretty decent last week, but B.C. always plays well on the road, and getting distracted by the bright lights of Guelph is, shall we say, a low risk.

Toronto @ Montreal (Sunday, September 8)
Both teams played terribly last week. Look for maybe one of them to not do quite so horribly this week. Please?

Saskatchewan @ Winnipeg (Sunday, September 8)
Winnipeg's seven-game losing streak, on the other hand, has been every bit as bad as it looks.

Good luck!

Thinking this just might be the week that the smallest amount of parity enters the fray ...

Ha! The perils of picking by coin flip when there is near consensus of who will win all the games. Maybe I'll do better this week.
