GameWeek 29 – The Analytics Team Preview

GW28 has only had half of the fixtures played so far, (causing much confusion for the analytics team) so plenty now have games in hand. It did though see Q-Sphere TFG League leader Philip Drew drop 2 more points. Courtesy of Man City drawing 0-0 with Stoke. In what was such an exciting game its led to UEFA putting in a formal complaint against the Premier League for playing a game on the same night as the Champions League….

Paul Wikramaratna picked Boro, so will have to wait to see if their new manager leads them to victory over Sunderland when the game gets rearranged. This did let Fraser Dayman move into second after picking Hull to win. And Andy Reynolds move into third after seeing Everton win.

Given only one person backed them to win then it seems only fair to give pick of the week to James Tweats. Who actually thought Bournemouth would beat West Ham, and they did, so that was nice.

Gameweek 29 does seem ten games being played, over a mere two days. Looks like a difficult week to pick with lots too close to call. However our analytics team (we sacked the stats team) say that everything is too close to call. Good job we spent 10k for that advice.

Given they’ve been no help then we say its a good week to go for a pick of the week award. Liverpool away at Man City would surely win you the crown. If Liverpool avoid defeat here then no top 6 side will have beaten them this season.

Burnley away at Sunderland must also be another good shout. They are on course for the worse away record of any team in Premier League history, surely they musy win away eventually.

Resurgent Hull travel to Everton, and if you pick Hull to win then you’ll defintely win pick of the week. Just for being such a great big hipster and always believing in Marco Silva. Ever since you started following his career in Portugal.

Man  Utd will surely win at Boro, new manager or not. Chelsea go to Stoke to continue their march to the title. After thumping Lincoln, Arsenal will surely win at West Brom. Or salvage a 1-1 draw with a last minute own goal.

Tottenham host Southampton, avoid using a pick here. Palace play Watford, which surely means an easy home win for Palace, but not even our highly paid analytics team can say when Watford will randomly win a game.

The last two games see West Ham host Leicester, Leicester of the back of three wins under Craig Shakespeare will surely fancy their chances of a fourth. But now nobody likes them so its a difficult one. On the south coast Bournemouth host Swansea, in the tenth game of the weekend that we have no idea who will win.
