Odds & Ends
- Have you seen the Premier League table? Spots 3-6 are tightly bunched af. Chelsea (66 pts, 23 gd), Tottenham (64 pts, 26 gd), Arsenal (63 pts, 25 gd), and Manchester United (61 pts, 18 gd) are separated by razor thin margins. Chelsea have played one more game, but are three clear of fifth place Arsenal, but still have to play Liverpool (this week), Manchester United, and FA Cup finals participant TURN DOWN FOR WATFORD. Regardless, FiveThirtyEight give them a 52% chance of UCL qualification. Arsenal is at 50%. Man U is bringing up the rear at 19%.
- Liverpool are unbeaten at home since since The Beatles played the Cavern Club (seriously look it up). They’re surprisingly short home favorites at -162 given their fortressing of Anfield and ability to repeatedly pull last minute horseshoes from their rear.
- Last week, we called the Wolves – Manchester United game as a potential value play, saying the Red Devils may be due for an emotional letdown after the hiring of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. This week United is somewhat reeling. Look at the West Ham draw or outright numbers there.
- Finally, Wolverhampton is a weekly (and gamely) roller-coaster. Southampton is in decent form. That +160 for the Saints at home is worth a longer look.
