, Last Updated: 7:30 AM ET

FRIDAY

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

Bender: Doesn't seem to matter who's pitching for Wily Wally these days and the Cowboys were knocked off their high horses last week. Leos.

Penton: The Red and White are relatively healthy. The same can't be said about the Lions quarterbacks. Stampeders.

Friesen: Can the Lions keep winning with whatever quarterback they put in? Logic says no. Stamps.

Wyman's coin flip: Calgary

MONDAY

Saskatchewan at Montreal, Noon,

TSN/RDS

Bender: The Riders couldn't beat the worst in the West in their own ballpark last week, they're not about to beat the Beast of the East away from home. Als.

Penton: Jim Popp will finally get that first victory as a head coach, because the players will win one for The Don. Alouettes.

Friesen: The Als will probably be wandering around in shock, wondering where The Don went. Roughriders.

Wyman's coin flip: Saskatchewan

Edmonton at Toronto, 3 p.m. CBC

Bender: Danny Moo-Chacha's charges barely beat the Riders last week while the Boatmen need to keep pace with the Birds. Argos.

Penton: The Boatmen beat a good Calgary team last week. They will have no trouble with the Eskies. Argos.

Friesen: Not even close. You can close the casket on the Esks any day now. Argos.

Wyman's coin flip: Toronto
