Lawro Audit 2: EPL Week 10

Posted: October 27, 2016

Last week’s action in the English Premier League can simply be summed up by the fact that the main players all seemed to wilt under the pressure. That wouldn’t be unnatural apart from the fact we’re only in the ninth week of the season. Yes, Arsenal could have gone clear at the top if they could beat Middlesbrough. One 0-0 later and it was a waster opportunity. This was, of course, after Spurs drew 0-0 with Bournemouth. Liverpool got a win over West Brom, but then it was down to Manchester City to try and capitalise on Arsenal’s slip up. Sure enough, they drew 1-1 with Southampton and that was that, more or less a stalemate until next week. Of course, Manchester United’s title hopes vanished after 30 seconds at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea went on a rampage and won 4-0. It was an amazing result, considering the fact that of the three games that day (City/Southampton, Rangers/Celtic, Chelsea/United), the only game the bookies expected to be under 2.5 goals was the Chelsea game, yet it was the only one that got over that magic 2.5 mark.

Followers of Mark Lawrenson will have been happy last week, as the great man not only tipped 6 correct results, but he also got the correct score of 2-0 in the Hull vs Stoke game, which paid a handsome 11/1 for us. Amazingly, Lawro’s great prediction in the Hull vs Stoke game helped him make a nice profit of +6.4 units last week, so Lawro’s loss has now gone down to a marginally more pleasing to the eyes -12.35 units. So, a nice little lift for the followers of Mark Lawrenson’s predictions and if we have two more weeks like that, we’re going to have a very welcome return to profit. I won’t be holding my breath, though.

As always, nothing too adventurous in Lawro’s predictions this week. I mean taking Middlesbrough to beat to beat Bournemouth is a slight shock, but he’s not pushing the boat out in terms of wild selections. Granted, at this stage in the season, he doesn’t have to take any risks to get him back on track, but surely he’s going to have to pick some more left field results some time soon. I mean, Crystal Palace at home to Liverpool, and he’s going for a 2-0 Liverpool win? That’s surely a game you want to make a slightly bolder prediction on. If it was me that was the BBC’s top prediction expert, I’d go for a 1-1 draw or, even better, a 2-2 draw, just to try something a little bit different.
