CFL Pick 'Em, Week 6: The underdogs win three of four, which makes for entertaining viewing, but doesn't help out much in the pick 'em scoring department. Pick yourself up, appreciate the one or two points that Saskatchewan generously threw your way, and make your picks inside.

Calgary rides into Edmonton, grabs an early lead, and ends up on top in a wild one. Winnipeg shocks the Lions faithful with an impressive defensive performance. Ottawa finds that it's tough to win in Guelph as the Ti-Cats take care of business, while Toronto reaffirms that it's near impossible to win in Regina.

Tough week for points with upsets in Edmonton and B.C., but JPR scrapes out four points to move into a tie for first.

Strange season so far. One undefeated team remains in the west, while every team in the east has just a single win. Who knew that Winnipeg was propping up the east for so long?

Winnipeg @ Hamilton (Thursday, July 31)
Hamilton finally notches their first win, only to have powerhouse Winnipeg arrive on their doorstep. Hamilton is the underdog at home, but the east has to win sometime against the west, doesn't it?

Toronto @ Montreal (Friday, August 1)
This legendary matchup of old is a bit creaky this year, with both teams off to tough starts. The good news here is that at least one team will notch their second win. Unless, of course, they tie.

B.C. @ Calgary (Friday, August 1)
The Lions have shown more spark this year than their 2-3 record indicates, but Calgary's earned every bit of their 4-0 record. Going to be tough for B.C. to beat the streak on the road.

Saskatchewan @ Ottawa (Saturday, August 2)
After two disappointing losses, the 'Riders roared out of their bye with a statement win last week. But they have yet to put two good games together, so a visit to Ottawa (where the Redblacks are historically undefeated) will be a good test.

Good luck!

I don't think I have ever seen so few points scored through five weeks than this. But this has been an odd season so far to say the least.

So here's to week six:

So, the Commonwealth Games, otherwise known as Empire School Sports Carnival. Winnipeg by 15. Is anyone in Canada watching? Toronto by 11. Calgary by 13. Because, as Usain Bolt so elegantly and accurately put it. Saskatchewan by 21. It's a bit shit.
