Michael Owen takes another crack at The £10,000,000 Colossus this week, which kicks off at 3PM on Saturday when Arsenal head to Cardiff in search of their fifth Premier League away win of the season.
This week The £10,000,000 Colossus starts in South Wales and ends in Basque Country, Northern Spain. Before that journey though I got a one way ticket to statsville; Here are what the stats say should win you The Colossus this weekend:
This week’s £10,000,000 Colossus jackpot features a brilliant ‘Super Sunday’ which ends up with a trip to Spain, where (hopefully) we’ll still be in with a chance of the jackpot or, at least, the consolation.
Form will be key this week with the likes of Hull and Tottenham on bad runs, while Newcastle are beginning to get going and Chelsea continue to be a formidable force at home.
The Athletico Bilbao v Barcelona match promises to be a great end to the weekend and maybe it will leave you a little bit richer. Here are my selections….
This week Michael tackles The £10,000,000 Colossus (as usual) as well as shooting for £200,000 in the 20p Pick 6 game.
As you may have seen from Twitter, I have been in China for the past week or so, but I am back in time for commentating duties on what is obviously a fixture very close to my heart. Namely, the Merseyside derby on BT Sport at 12.45pm on Saturday.
So you probably won’t be surprised to hear that I am sitting on the fence and going for a 1-1 draw. Well, it is fully justified by the facts!
Everton’s home record makes them near-impossible to oppose. Or, rather, very difficult to make a case for them losing.
Everton v Liverpool 12:45 23/11
The Merseyside Derby is always one that promises to be a fiery occasion. This will be the first meeting as rival managers between Martinez and Rodgers, and I don’t think either men will want to lose this one. Everton have one of the best defensive records in the division, keeping a shut out in 3 out of 5 home games, whereas on their travels Liverpool have only 1 clean sheet so far. Everton will have the home advantage, but Liverpool have been very impressive this season, and for me this game will be a great one, with not a lot of chances and under 2.5 goals. For this game I predict a 1-1 draw, and am also going to cover this with a 1-0 win either way.
This week’s Colossus has thrown up some interesting encounters with not one, not two, but THREE derbies to contend with. I’ve gone through past meetings and recent form though to pick out your winners for this week’s big £10,000,000 jackpot. Here are my selections….
