CFL Pick 'Em, Week Three: Express Edition! Upsets, injuries and blowouts in week two action across the CFL. Say a prayer for Ricky Ray and make your picks inside.

[EDITOR'S NOTE: The CFL Computron 5000 is still chugging through last week's picks (also, I am moving house) but here are this week's games! Credit to Reever for the recaps and previews this week!]

Despite a strong first week effort, Saskatchewan falls to Ottawa in the nation's capital. Winnipeg absolutely thumps a rebuilding Montreal team with some creative play calling. Hamilton looks good beating Edmonton on the road, and Toronto, with or without Ray, looked hopeless at home in the Grey Cup rematch.

WEEK 3

Ottawa @ Calgary (Thursday, June 28)
Two strong teams meet in Cowtown as both look to stay undefeated in 2018.

Winnipeg @ Hamilton (Friday, June 29)
Both teams look to build momentum from their impressive week two wins in Hamilton's home opener.

BC @ Edmonton (Friday, June 29)
Edmonton hopes to shake off an unimpressive outing against Hamilton in week two against the visiting BC Lions, fresh off a bye week.

Montreal @ Saskatchewan (Saturday, June 30)
Both teams suffered ugly week two losses. Like, really ugly. And Saskatchewan is always a tough place to play for visiting teams.

Good luck!

Regret the woes of Ricky Ray
For he is hurt and cannot play.
Thus there's no quarterback in Toronto
They had best find a good one pronto.

I really don't want to be the Poet Laureate for Sports Filter, but it's one of those dirty jobs someone has to do.

Now the picks:

Calgary is in their own corral. People with checkered shirts beware. Calgary by 16

Cats do not allow strangers to use their litter box. Hamilton by 8

Cats of a larger variety go on the road. This is never a good thing. Edmonton by 11

Rough Riders trample little birds that don't get off the ground. Look out, Alouettes. Saskatchewan by 19
