TODAY

B.C. at Montreal, 6:30 p.m. TSN/RDS

Bender: The Larks have never lost four straight under The Don and are not about to start the week before they fly into the deadly Lions' den. Als.

Penton: Confidence is low in La Belle Province, while the Leos are coming off the bye. Lions.

Friesen: One team has won five straight, is coming off a break and traveling across the country, the other is at home and getting awfully ornery after losing three in a row. Montreal.

Wyman's coin flip: Montreal

SUNDAY

Winnipeg at Saskatchewan, 6:30 p.m. TSN

Bender: The 'Big Blue Berry' now has a chance with Glenn and Milt back, but only if they last the whole game. The Roughies may have won two straight but everyone except Winnipeg whips the Pussycats. Bombers.

Penton: The returns of Kevin Glenn and Milt Stegall are big, and the Blue and Gold match up well against the Green and White. Bombers.

Friesen: Common sense dictates you pick the 'Riders. Common sense has no place on the Labour Day weekend. Winnipeg.

Wyman's coin flip: Winnipeg

MONDAY

Edmonton at Calgary, 2 p.m. CBC

Bender: Danny 'Much-Choka' is feeling the heat in the Igloo and it is about to get hotter after meeting the gun-smokin' Cowpokes. Stamps.

Penton: Calgary has made the CFL's 2005 defensive player of the year, John Grace, a backup. That tells you how good this team is. Stampeders.

Friesen: The Esks are the reigning Grey Cup champs. The Stamps look like they could be the next ones. Calgary.

Wyman's coin flip: Calgary

Toronto at Hamilton, 5 p.m. CBC

Bender: The 'Little Beerbellied General' needed more changes on the field than off it to put some bite back into his Pussycat Dolls. But this may be closer than you think. Argos.

Penton: How low can the Ticats go? Argonauts.

Friesen: Toronto quarterback Damon Allen passes Warren Moon, while Ticats fans consider sending their entire team to the moon. Toronto.

Wyman's coin flip: Toronto
