More EPL coming up this weekend and although it will be hard to top last weekend’s action that won’t stop our EPL Matchday 15 Predictions.
Once again we are taking on a competitor with our EPL Matchday 15 Predictions, and once again it is an absurd opponent.
In our never ending quest to see whether arse beats class (or poor tipping) this week we are putting our tips against the results of the Brexit election from earlier in the year.
Not being content with going up against Football Kit colours, Scrabble scores, passing cars, children and dogs, we are taking on the results of the Brexit election.
How does that work? Easy. Sort of.
For each team we have the Brexit result of their electorate from the big poll. We then take the winning result and the margin. For instance in the electorate Arsenal is, in the Remain vote won with 75.2% of the vote. In Stoke, the winner was Leave with 69.4%. So we take the higher of the two scores, so Remain wins. If they are both the same then that answer is obvious.
Since Remain means stay in the EU, that means not the UK, and the Brexit tip is the away team. If the Leave result is the winner it means they want to stay in the UK, which means home team gets the tip.
So, it is easy. Remain in EU means away side to win. Leave means leave Europe and the home side is the popular pick.
How does it all translate to tips? Find out below. But onto our first.
