TONIGHT

Montreal at Toronto, 6:30 p.m. TSN

Bender: Calamity Clemons is reportedly resting five starters while The Don will want to send a message to the Boatmen, who usually play the Birds tough. Als by 10.

Penton: No Damon Allen and Anthony Calvillo needs 313 yards for 6,000. Enough said. Alouettes by 9.

Friesen: Yet another meaningless game for the Als. But there is a little meaning as they'd like to carry some momentum into the playoffs. Als by 14.

TOMORROW

Calgary at Winnipeg, 7:30 p.m. TSN (local blackout in effect)

Bender: Door Matt has the most underrated defence in the CFL and reason for optimism now that Khari Jones is at QB. And this Meaningless Bowl may be the last game for many of the Dogged Daley's Bombers as all they have to look forward to is even further reconstruction. Stamps by 10.

Penton: The Bombers will be way too flat after having the playoff balloon popped last weekend. Plus, Khari will want to put on a show. Stamps by 3.

Friesen: The Bombers have nothing to play for ... but their jobs. Even with a pumped up Jones returning that should be enough incentive to put them over the top. Bombers by 7.

SATURDAY

Hamilton at Ottawa, 2 p.m. CBC

Bender: The Tiger-Cats will use the Renegades as a scratching post in preparation for the post-season while Ottawa can't wait for the season to end. 'Cats by 14.

Penton: The Renegades will fight for pride, but the Ticats will want to ride into The Big Smoke on a winning note. Ticats by 12.

Friesen: The Ticats will put a merciful end to the Renegades season. 'Cats by 14.

Saskatchewan at B.C., 9 p.m. TSN

Bender: This could be a dandy if it meant anything to Wily Wally's Lions but it doesn't. The Grinnin' Barrett's boys, however, can clinch second and their first home playoff in decades. 'Riders by 7.

Penton: A home playoff date is on the line for Gang Green, but the Lions will taste victory one more time. Lions by 3.

Friesen: The 'Riders are motivated, but the Lions have too many weapons. Leos by 7.

REPORTERS' RECORDS:

BENDER: 49-28 overall (4-0 last week)

PENTON: 47-30 (4-0)

FRIESEN: 51-26 (4-0)
