3 Downs, 3 Picks: Previewing week 5 of the CFL season

Black Press Media's Jordy Cunningham and Bowen Assman will be making a weekly video staying up-to-date in the CFL and giving weekly picks throughout the entire season
3 Downs, 3 Picks is a weekly CFL video breaking down news around the league and previewing the week ahead.

Week 4 of the CFL season brought us the closest week of the year so far as three of four games were decided by three or fewer points.

To recap the week, the B.C. Lions cashed a last-second field goal to beat Edmonton while Montreal is now the only undefeated team in the east with a 30-20 win over Toronto. Meanwhile, Calgary beat Winnipeg in overtime keeping the Blue Bombers undefeated and Ottawa held on to beat Hamilton 24-22.

As for us, it was another tough week for Jordy as he went 1/3 on his picks, falling to 7/12 on the season. Bowen remains remarkable with his picks as he went 3/3 again, including the head-to-head match up, and is now 10/12 on the campaign. With Bowen's win in the head-to-head game, Jordy and Bowen are tied 2-2.


It's time to see what week five has in store:


Jordy - B.C. over Hamilton

Bowen - Winnipeg over Ottawa

Jordy - Montreal wide receiver Tyson Philpot over 79.5 receiving yards

Bowen - B.C. Lions wide receiver Alexander Hollins over 88.5 receiving yards
