Every Friday, I'm going to be making a few picks here, along with some reasoning. I usually only pick upsets, so I only pick a few games a week. This week I'm unsure how well I'll do, as there is not enough data to really tell what teams are for real yet. Nevertheless, I'm going to attempt it anyway. Follow my picks at your own risk.
Pick #1: Tottenham (5/1) at Man United
United would have been fortunate to get just a draw out of their last game, they were extremely lucky to pick up a win. They mustered a solitary SOG, yet scored two goals. Suffice it to say I don't think that is repeatable and they will have to be much better against Spurs to get three points. United are at home and they are the better team, but between injuries to key defenders, the shakiness of De Gea, and the form Spurs showed in midweek, I like Tottenham to win. I like them even more at 5/1 odds.
Pick #2: Annndddd that's it. Sorry, only one game I really like this week. More next week, I promise.
