      With week 3 in the books, couchspud is in the lead by himself with a 10-2 record! Adb and I are on his heels, with adb snagging a bonus point to sit alone in second place. All four road teams win this week, with 29+ points in all four games. Weird week, actually!
      Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

        I , and many others on this board, really bought into the Bombers being unbeatable . Did they get caught napping or is age showing signs already?

          Strange week indeed. Went 2-2 on the week and made up ground.

              Really tricky picks this week.

              Edmonton vs. Ottawa. Combined record of 0-5. Two worst teams by a long shot post covid. Both starting QBs getting first career start. Ottawa had the bye week, but they are playing at home and their home record since 2019 is even worse than the Elks with the only win since July 2019 being vs. the Elks. I can't pick both to lose. Maybe we'll see a tie where the final OT possessions will be an Interception against the first team, then a blocked Field Goal vs. the second. Both teams snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

              Winnipeg vs. Montreal. Montreal off to a pretty decent start, albeit against teams that are a combined 0-5. Montreal at home. Could be an upset announcing Montreal's official arrival as a team to beat in the East, but Winnipeg hasn't lost back to back in a game that matters since October 2019.

              BC vs. Toronto. Both teams undefeated, but Toronto is at home and seems to be continuing the form from their Grey Cup win. BC coming off a huge wins against a strong Bombers team then getting the champs is a perfect opportunity to stake their claim to the West.

              X-Factor. East vs. West games traditionally go to the Western team 90% of the time early in the season, but the West is really looking mediocre this year outside of BC and Winnipeg.

                Bone was right... a tricky week, even with only three games. Counchspud weathered the storm, with me two points back; and adb, cmbuk, naf, and Skip12 all at 10-5.

                Games are coming up rapidly this week, so make your picks now!

                  After this week, we have a new co-leader, namely, me! Been a while since I've been in such heady company as couchspud. Somehow, adb has gotten enough bonus points to claim third place at 13-6, even though cmbuk and naf are 14-5. As usual this season, it's very close throughout.

                  This is your weekly reminder, a day earlier than usual... games start up again in three days!

                    This week, couchspud and I continue to lead at the top, although by a mere two points. Bone, cmbuk, and naf are lurking (along with a bunch of others) in striking distance...

                    Time to get your picks in for this week! Games are coming up.

                      Lots of what I would consider to be upsets last week. It seems the only thing guaranteed these days is an Elks loss.

                        Bombers are 16.5 point favourites. Don't know when I last saw a margin like that. I might bet against the Elks even with that spread.

                          I took the bombers to win 55-1

                            The last two Elks games in Winnipeg were losses by 27 points and 37 points. Edmonton has trailed in every game in the fourth at some point by at least 19 points, except the two Saskatchewan games.

                            Winnipeg beating the spread seems like a foregone conclusion to me.

                              This week, couchspud and I are still neck-and-neck at the top of the table, with bone in third place and cmbuk and adb well within striking distance!

                              Get in your picks; this week's games are coming up fast!
