The regular season is now over, and the playoff matches in the first round are locked and loaded. Without any further adieu, let's get into our picks!
Edmonton @ Montreal
The Eskimos crossed over to the East to snag the final playoff spot (seeing as how the East was the worst of two divisions this year), and will likely get trounced by the Alouettes. The Esks limped into the playoffs on a two-game losing streak amidst much inconsistency. The Als on the other hand go into the post-season on a winning note, with QB Vernon Adams Jr. looking quite good. The Als should win this game, at home, without any issues.
Winnipeg @ Calgary
Two evenly matched teams that had some issues this year, but managed to get into the playoffs with room to spare. The Stampeders haven't been as consistent this year as they have in previous seasons, while the Bombers have had a much better year that started to be plagued with injuries and such. Even though the game is in Calgary, I think Winnipeg will come out on top, with a Justin Medlock field goal sealing the deal in this game.
PICK: Blue Bombers
FIRST ROUND BYE: Hamilton, Saskatchewan
REGULAR SEASON RECORD: 61-20
