Andy couldn’t make it three wins in a row last week, and so his lead at the top has been cut… marginally…
Twittererererers may have witnessed Iain Macintosh waxing lyrical on Sunday as his winning Charity Bet came in alongside a predicted upturn in fortunes for Fernando Torres at Stamford Bridge. Rumours of a new role with The Sun penning their horoscopes pages are as yet unfounded, but we’re expecting confirmation in the coming days.
What we do know is that he has closed the gap at the top of the table, leapfrogging In Bed With Maradona at the same time. Unfortunately fro Iain there’s still the GDP of a small country between him and Andy, but it may not be all over just yet.
1.Andy Brassell – £112.25
2.Iain Macintosh – £57
3. IBWM – £43.00
4.Jonathan Wilson – £17.25
5.Ben Lyttleton – £17.25

BL – Liverpool to draw with Wigan @ 4/1
Wigan have only lost once in their last five, but too many draws have kept them in the drop-zone. In the last two matches, Momo Diame missed late chances to beat both Norwich and WBA and, like Liverpool, their inability to finish chances has cost them. Liverpool are under pressure from Swansea and, dare I say it, Everton for seventh spot. Liverpool will want to bounce back after their capitulation at QPR, but won’t find it easy.
JW – QPR to beat Sunderland @ 5/2
Sunderland’s league form is wobbling as they focus on the Cup; QPR ‘s comeback against Liverpool should give them momentum.
IM – Norwich to win by two goals @ 17/4
I like Wolves and I like their fans, but their careering carriage of doom is my glorious chariot of profit. I won by backing them for a spanking last week and I’m doing the same here. Norwich are a good, meaty side and they don’t strike me as the sort of rabble who’ll down tools just because their safe from relegation. I’ll have them to win and I’ll have them to win by two clear goals.
IBWM – Arsenal to draw with Villa @ 33/10
Arsenal are ON A ROLL right now, but then you don’t need me to tell you that. Whenever a team gets this sort of momentum, there’s always a game that looks a certain 3 points on the horizon, but somehow turns out differently. Everything suggests that Arsenal will beat Villa this weekend, but I’m going to slap for the face of reason and go for a draw here.
AB – Tottenham to beat Chelsea @ 29/10
Statistically, Redknapp’s Spurs of 2012 seem to be going the same way as Blanc’s Bordeaux in 2010; uncertainty is bad for business. That doesn’t tell the whole story though, with Tottenham unlucky not to get more points from Everton and Stoke. Likewise, Chelsea’s rebirth has been a touch overstated, so Spurs are worth a punt to end their bad run.
