JIM BENDER, KIRK PENTON and PAUL FRIESEN -- Winnipeg Sun

, Last Updated: 9:45 AM ET

TODAY

Montreal at Winnipeg, 7 p.m. TSN/RDS (local blackout likely in effect)

Bender: The Big Blue Berry's boys should be able to taste those elusive playoffs now but the fluttering Birds will put up a fight. Bombers.

Penton: There is nothing to suggest the Alouettes are about to end their dive. Bombers.

Friesen: The Bombers haven't won two in a row since July. Why would they start now? Montreal.

Wyman's coin flip: Montreal

SATURDAY

B.C. at Hamilton, 3 p.m. TSN

Bender: Wally Boo-Boo suffered from such a big brain cramp last week that someone actually suggested he needs to see a shrink. But we think he will recover in time to put the Little Beerbellied General out of his misery. Leos.

Penton: The Leos gave one away last week. They won't do it again. Lions.

Friesen: The Ticats are up off the mat, folks... only to be knocked back down by the Lions. B.C.

Wyman's coin flip: Hamilton

Calgary at Toronto, 6 p.m. CBC

Bender: The Horsemen's heads are getting swollen again and the Amazin' Allen will have a cure for that in the middle of a rare CFL triple-header. Argos.

Penton: The Boatmen will find a way to get it done in the rematch. Argos.

Friesen: Call this a hunch. Argos.

Wyman's coin flip: Toronto

Edmonton at Saskatchewan, 9 p.m. TSN

Bender: Danny Much-Choka's charges may be even more desperate but they have yet to win a road game this year, and the Grinnin' Barrett's boys are coming off the big win over B.C. 'Riders.

Penton: The Green and White help the Bombers clinch a playoff berth. Go figure. Roughriders.

Friesen: Another Eskimos loss, another week in which Hugh Campbell says there's no reason to panic. 'Riders.

Wyman's coin flip: Edmonton
