Four teams have now wrapped up playoff spots in the CFL. The British Columbia Lions have clinched a first round bye and a second round home game as have the Montreal Alouettes. The Calgary Stampeders will be hosting a first round game. The Saskatchewan Rough Riders will be in the playoffs and could be hosting in the first round. The Toronto Argonauts and Edmonton Eskimos have the inside track on the final two playoff spots and could clinch them this weekend. Here is a preview of this week's games:

B.C. Lions at Calgary Stampeders

The Top two teams in the West square off in what will be a good one on Friday in Calgary. BC has won the two previous meetings, 34-8 on July 28 and 27-22 one October 6. This game has been taken off the betting lines. Perhaps both teams will be resting starters this week to get ready for the playoffs.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers at Hamilton Tiger-Cats

Hamilton is -5 -110 while the Blue Bombers are +5 -110. Over/under for this game is 55. Winnipeg beat Hamilton 32-25 on Aug 16 and then beat them 34-12 on Sept 21. If past history is an indication, the Ti-Cats should cover the spread this week. The loser of this game gets eliminated. The winner might be too. We like the Tiger Cats -5 on Sports Interaction.

Toronto Argonauts at Saskatchewan Rough Riders

The Rough Riders beat the Argonauts 36-10 on October the 8th. Toronto is +5.5 -110 while the Rough Riders are -5.5 -110. Over/under is 51. Toronto will be motivated to win as they can clinch a playoff spot if they do. They may come up a bit short, but we will take the Argos +5.5.

Edmonton Eskimos at Montreal Alouettes

The Eskimos are trying to wrap up a playoff spot with a win. Edmonton is +5 -110 while the Alouettes are -5 -110. Over/under is 52.5. Monteal beat Edmonton 38-25 on August 17 and that was on the road. We like the Alouettes at home -5.
