After the horror show of predictions which were Week 5, I think it is better news this time around as there were no real coupon busters (admittedly I still didn’t get all of them right but you cannot have it all) So without further ado lets have a look as to how my predictions fared over the course of the extended Premier League weekend.
West Ham vs Tottenham – Tottenham Win YES
Burnley vs Huddersfield – Burnley Win NO
Everton vs Bournemouth – Everton Win YES
Manchester City vs Crystal Palace – Manchester City Win YES
Southampton vs Manchester United – Manchester United Win YES
Stoke vs Chelsea – Chelsea Win YES
Swansea vs Watford – Draw NO
Leicester vs Liverpool – Draw NO
Brighton vs Newcastle – Draw NO
Arsenal vs West Brom – Arsenal Win YES
Well that’s better isn’t it. After the shocking return last weekend the ship has finally been steadied and is heading in the right direction. A solid 6 out of 10 is not to be sniffed at and had Jamie Vardy not missed that penalty and Richarlison not scored that late winner for Watford then it would have been 8 correct predictions.
But there is no room for ifs and buts when it comes to betting that is exactly how the land lies so I will have to be grateful for the correct picks on the board. For the running total across the season it means I am on 26 correct predictions out of 60. A strike rate of 43.3%, we are up 3.3% on last week and edging nearer the mid table marker of 50%
What with the Premier League table now starting to level itself it should start to get slightly easier to make the correct picks. I say should do, there is no guarantee when it comes to my predictions. I shall be back tomorrow with the offering for Week 7. Until then.
