It took quite a while for that gameweek to finally come to a close but we got their in the end and that is also means that it is time to once again review just how my Premier League Predictions have fared over the past week or so, to be honest I don’t think this is going to make for very good reading. Let’s not wait any longer we may as well dive straight in.
Leicester vs Stoke – Leicester Win NO
Brighton vs Swansea – Draw NO
Bournemouth vs Newcastle – Bournemouth Win NO
Burnley vs Southampton – Burnley Win NO
Liverpool vs West Ham – Liverpool Win
West Brom vs Huddersfield – West Brom Win NO
Watford vs Everton – Draw NO
Crystal Palace vs Tottenham – Tottenham Win YES
Manchester United vs Chelsea – Draw NO
Arsenal vs Manchester City – Manchester City Win YES
If I could sum that up in a word it would be…..ouch. A measly three out of 10 were correct, more wrong than right and looking back I made a right pigs ear of this set of picks. The only games that I nailed down were wins for Tottenham, Manchester City and Liverpool. The rest I guess it is time to put to bed.
More importantly what has that done for my ongoing strike rate for the season, I needed seven to get back to a 50% split but it was much lower than that. For the season out of 280 predictions I have got 136 correct, giving me a strike rate of 48.5%.
This now means to get back to an even 50% for the season, I am going to get nine out of ten picks correct next time around. Ultimately that is going to take one hell of a prediction performance to get over the line. Truth be told anything more than five will set us in good stead. Until tomorrow when I return with the Week 29 picks.
