Fifty percent off all upsets! Saskatchewan's defence comes up big again, grinding out a win against Hamilton. Ottawa grabs the early lead and holds fast for the win. The James Franklin era is off to a promising start, as he leads the Argos to a last-minute win, while B.C. allows 41 points for the second week in a row.

The early season start means the first triple-bye three-game week in CFL Pick 'Em History! Make those picks count.

WEEK 5

Calgary @ Ottawa (Thursday, July 12)
It's a good, old fashioned, early-season match-up between division leaders. Ottawa has a chance to establish themselves as early favourites in the middling East, but first they've gotta hand Calgary its first lost.

Toronto @ Edmonton (Friday, July 13)
Speaking of early favourites, Edmonton needs to notch a win to keep pace with Calgary. But they'll need to solve James Franklin as they complete the home-and-home.

Winnipeg @ B.C. (Saturday, July 14)
Speaking of home-and-homes, this will be a victory for B.C. if they can hold Winnipeg to 40 points or fewer.

Good luck!

Crap, I missed getting the pick on the Calgary vs Ottawa game in on time. Had to mow the lawn this afternoon, then had to cook dinner. Probably would have gotten it wrong anyway.

For the other two:

I thought the Geneva Convention prohibited the use of bombers against innocent people. Maybe this doesn't apply to Blue Bombers. Winnipeg by 23
