CFL Pick 'Em, Week Eighteen : The West is up for grabs, and so is first place in our little Pick 'Em. Well, as long as your name starts with either a "T" or a "J". Check your name tags and make your picks inside.

What Western dominance? Edmonton doesn't even get close in Hamilton, and Montreal locks it down against Calgary. Saskatchewan keeps the Bombers on the skids, and, wow, that's a lot of points.

Given recent trends, the West won't be decided until the last week of the season, and it will be B.C. sneaking up to grab it. (Or not.)

WEEK 18

Ottawa @ Toronto (Friday, October 11)
Getting this game out of the way early. Consider making dinner reservations for Friday night.

Saskatchewan @ Calgary (Friday, October 11)
The fight for first: Calgary currently owns the tiebreaker, so whoever wins claims sole possession of first place in the division.

Montreal @ Winnipeg (Saturday, October 12)
Winnipeg's got their sights set on a home playoff date, but the resurgent Alouettes are making a late-season push.

B.C. @ Edmonton (Saturday, October 12)
Speaking of late-season trends, Edmonton has won one game out of their last six. That said, there's nothing like hosting the Lions for a quick refresher.

Good luck!

To my everlasting shame, I have not paid sufficient attention to the CFL pick 'em. Thus, I see that I am rightfully in the cellar. Can I crawl out of there? Won't be easy.

Met a nice couple from Alberta recently, and I asked if they favored Eskimos or Stampeders. The answer was neither; they said that everyone rooted for Roughriders. I must disagree. Calgary by 6

Alouettes started slowly and then hit their stride. Pity they will stumble. Winnipeg by 14

When the weather gets cold, most cats find a nice warm spot to curl up and sleep. Edmonton is not the place. Edmonton by 16

It's 3-3 in the first quarter. I'm throwing myself on the mercy of the court and picking Toronto by 13.
