It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and an early Xmas present is midweek football and our EPL midweek predictions.
There’s nothing better for the weeks before Christmas than a full book of EPL to get one through the early meh-ning boredom.
Onto our EPL midweek predictions for this week.
Each week since Matchday 6 we have pitted ourselves against a variety of obscure human and non human tipping methods. This week’s EPL Midweek predictions are no exception.
After taking on Brexit voting last weekend, we move onto another statistical opponent this week. We are taking on tips decided by the amount of people in that team’s town/city/borough per point scored so far. The fewer people per point, the better the performance too.
That means the team with the lowest amount of people per point scored gets the tip. Where possible we tried to use the correct boroufgh, and where that wasn’t possible we used the number of people in the greater area and divided by the number of teams. Like in Liverpool and Manchester.
After a weekend of high scoring and upsets, the action on the field will be hard to top. The tipping off the field needs an improvement on both sides too.
