CFL Pick 'Em, Week Twenty: It's the last week of the season and there's still so much to be decided. Put your affairs in order and make your picks inside.

Bring on the weird football! Hamilton makes things interesting in Ottawa, but a monster fourth quarter puts the game away for the Redblacks. Saskatchewan goes for the gusto, blowing out Montreal. A huge setback for Winnipeg, losing a tough game to the Lions, with Matt Nichols and Andrew Harris getting hurt in the process, while Edmonton gets the job done to move into a tie for second.

It's down to the wire: Reever's still in first, but ic23b scores five to make things interesting.

Multiple meaningful games in the last week of the season! It's a November miracle. Feel free to double-check my tiebreak math.

WEEK 20

Montreal @ Hamilton (Friday, November 3)
Both of these teams are missing the playoffs. Find your lucky coin and flip it.

Winnipeg @ Calgary (Friday, November 3)
Bad news for Winnipeg: Matt Nichols won't make the start. The better news: they'll be playing Calgary's backups. The best news: they only lose their second seed if they lose and Edmonton wins.

Edmonton @ Saskatchewan (Saturday, November 4)
Thanks to their big Week 10 win, the Riders hold a big edge in the aggregate points tiebreaker. That means this game's winner gets plays in the West playoffs, while the loser crosses over to play the East. With Winnipeg hobbled, which would you prefer?

Toronto @ B.C. (Saturday, November 4)
Ottawa did their job last week and grabbed the top spot again. Now it's simple: if Toronto wins, they get the division and a bye week. If they lose, they host EDM/SSK next week. Personally, I'd go all out to get Ricky Ray some rest.

Good luck!

**Yes, I know, wrong pick 'em for the LOCKS. But have to try something with it being the last week and down by 6.

Oh, I should have been using the lucky coin?! I've just been using the regular coin all season, and see where that's gotten me...

Well, if I'm going to make a move, I have to shirk the conventional wisdom.

I'm hanging on to a second tier record with hope of improving. Probability of doing that? Not great, but who knows.

I don't have a lucky coin, so I had to flip my lucky cat. She kept landing on her feet, so heads and tails weren't happening. After the 4th or 5th try she grew angry, and now I can't get close to her. Hamilton by 6
