EPL Matchday 27 Predictions

Now that the excitement of the FA Cup 3rd Round has died down it is time for EPL Matchday 21 Predictions.

Once again we provide the “finest” in EPL predictions, and once again we are up against an opponent whose tips are decided by some ridiculous method.

That ridiculous methods for this week’s EPL Matchday 21 Predictions is based on which club’s manager is less likely to be sacked.

We got the idea from the fine website, and authority of sacked or sackable managers – The Sack Race.

How does it work?

We think that the closer a club’s manager is to the sack, the worse they’ll play. So we compare the two sides in action for our EPL Matchday 21 Predictions , and whichever club’s manager has the bigger odds according to The Sack Race, will get the tip. The bigger the odds, the less likely the manager will be sacked soon, and the better they’ll play. Apparently.

Timely too, given this week’s action features the first League game for new managers at Swansea and Hull.

So onto this week’s gold.
