The feast of UK football continues as does our terrible EPL Matchday 24 Predictions.
Hot on the heels of a midweek round is another weekend full of EPL goodness.
Just because the title race seems almost over, that doesn’t mean the average fan or punter can’t enjoy the rest of the season.
There’s plenty of money to be made, and we supply our EPL Matchday 24 Predictions in the faint hope we get them all correct and feel the need to share.
Each week we not only provide our tips, but we put our selections up against opponent tips decided in some bizarre way. Dogs, Babies, Hours of Sunshine, Railway Stations and more have been used to supply opponent tips.
This week we are up against EPL Matchday 24 Predictions based on the number of vowels in the team name.
How does that work?
Well, since you’re asking we will explain.
We take the amount of vowels in the team name and divide by the total number of letters in the team’s name. The team with the highest percentage of vowel to overall letter gets the tip.
Sounds easy. But beating the tips may not be. Anyway, here are our EPL Matchday 24 Predictions.
