The first CFL playoffs game of the day is in Hamilton at 1:00 PM EST, followed by the West Finals in Saskatchewan at 4:30 PM EST.

Eastern Finals Preview –Edmonton Eskimos vs. Hamilton Tiger-Cats

After an exciting win over the Montreal Alouettes, the Edmonton Eskimos will try and do the unthinkable, become the first crossover team to make the Grey Cup.

The Eskimos face a much tougher task against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Hamilton went a CFL best 15-3 this season, including a 9-0 mark at home. Edmonton went 3-6 on the road this season, including a 30-point loss in Hamilton in early October.

Hamilton opens as the favourite, and with their skills on both sides of the ball, it is hard to see Edmonton winning consecutive games on the road against East opponents.

Hamilton leads the CFL points for and points against, outscoring Edmonton by 145 points or more than a touchdown per game. Hamilton was also the only team in the CFL this season to hold opponents to less than 20 points per game.

Edmonton is getting quality play out of their quarterback Trevor Harris. Harris went 36-39 in Edmonton’s win over Montreal last weekend, throwing 421 yards, the third time he has passed for 420 or more yards in his previous six games.

Harris was injured for both of Edmonton’s game against Hamilton this season. His return will help Edmonton play more a more competitive game against Hamilton, but it is still not enough to give them enough of an edge to pull off the upset.

Pick: Hamilton Tiger-Cats (-370) to Win East Finals 

Western Finals Preview – Winnipeg Blue Bombers vs. Saskatchewan Roughriders

With Winnipeg beating Calgary last weekend, the West will have a different Grey Cup representative since 2013, when the Saskatchewan Roughriders won their fourth Grey Cup.

Saskatchewan hosts the West Finals. Saskatchewan started the season 1-3 but went 12-2 to finish the year, with both losses coming on the road.

Saskatchewan won both home games against Winnipeg this season, holding Winnipeg to a combined 23 points in their victories.

Winnipeg is entering the West Finals with some questions on the defensive side of the ball. Excluding their victory over Calgary on Sunday, Winnipeg has allowed five of their last six opponents to score at least 25 points. The lack of defence caused Winnipeg to slip out of the top spot in the West, after entering their week 14 bye with a 9-3 record.

Their playoff win against Calgary was Winnipeg’s first road win since August 23 against Edmonton.

Saskatchewan opens as the favourite in this game is the better bet to win on Sunday. Saskatchewan has the better quarterback in the game, with Cody Fajardo selected as the quarterback for the CFL Western All-Stars.

The talent around Fajardo helped the quarterback average 9.1 yards per attempt and 12.7 yards per competition. His ability to move the ball effectively down the field helps Saskatchewan build leads or come back quickly when trailing.

Winnipeg will give the Roughriders a run for their money, but it is hard to see the Blue bombers defence stepping it up for four straight quarters to help their team get a win and advance to their first Grey Cup since 2011 (when they played in the East).

Pick: Saskatchewan Roughriders (-165) to Win West Finals
