I am less confident in these than I am in the usual spreads due to little interconference play in one case, and none at all in the other.
Laval at Mount Allison (+20.5)
Western at Calgary (+13.5)
This is the third-straight playoff game where I have called the Mounties at least seven-point underdogs, twice making me look stupid, though something tells me they won't win this time.
As always, check out friend of the blog Jim Mullin and the crew on Countdown U:
