Odds & Ends
- Villa have taken 7 out of their last 9 available points and are out of relegation on goal differential (just 1) over Watford. If karma is a real thing, Villa–a club with history and ambition–should handle a safe West Ham and stay up. Watford management have fucked up their season in truly bafoonish ways. They deserve a drop.
- Man U went on an impressive run after the restart…against Sheffield, Norwich, Brighton, Bournemouth, Villa, and out-of-form Palace. Only the Sheffield win was impressive. Most recently, they lost to Chelsea and tied West Ham. OGS has feasted on bad teams both as caretaker and full-tie manager. Leicester are at home. They do not want to drop out of the top 4 after spending all season in it. Back the Foxes.
- That Chelsea vs Wolves line is suspicious. Why are Wolves +330? Ride Pulisic and Chelsea. The oddsmakers know something.
- Bournemouth are the hardest team to figure out this season. They have enough talent and competent coaching to stay up. Expect an inspired performance against an Everton side with nothing to play for–Cherries take 3.
