It's been an incredibly long week for your boy as I have moved back to Boston after my winter break. Obviously, I am not an excuse guy, but I need to apologize as it's not been a good week for content as I need to get back on the horse as this blog is more important than fixing up my house! Now as we get ready for this great weekend in the Premier League, we are back to giving you two of the best picks you'll get as we have one in blog form and of course our world famous podcast preview!
West Bromwich Albion F.C @ Everton F.C.
It's been a tough month for Everton as in their last five matches in the Premier League they have zero wins and three losses. They are also coming off an embarrassing defeat to Tottenham as they had zero shots on goal. In saying all of this negative stuff, they will win this weekend as they are going up against a team that is for sure going down in West Brom. Where to begin with the Baggies, they have in my opinion one of the worst managers in England in Alan Pardew, they are incredibly boring to watch, they have no talent going forward, and they are usually AWFUL away from home. Even though both of these teams are usually incredibly boring, both teams need a win to kick-start their 2018 as one is trying to stay up, and the other is trying not to be the laughing stock of Liverpool. All in all, when you see how well Wayne Rooney has done against smaller clubs this season, and the fact WBA look awful away from home, I just see Everton narrowly winning this game....Most likely will be extremely boring though!
Prediction: 1-0 Everton
Tottenham Hotspur F.C. @ Southampton F.C.
Prediction: 3-0 Spurs
Hey Guys! Just a quick rant here before I start writing our preview for this weekend in the Premier League! So as I was watching the Chelsea match yesterday against EFL Championship team Norwich, and I realized something, every match besides maybe two this season that Chelsea have been in have been super boring. But hey, I thought I was biased due to my hate for them, so I went on the scary platform known as "Chelsea Twitter," and most of the fans have been attacking Antonio Conte for their playing style this season. I just wanted to put this in writing before it comes out, but Antonio Conte will leave at the end of the year, this team has something rotten about it as Chelsea will once again be looking for a new manager.
Rant is over! Sorry for the lack of blogs, moving has been such a pain! Be back to daily content soon! I Promise!
As we kiss the weekend goodbye, we can look back on some incredible moments in not just the Premier League but in sports in general. We had the NFL Playoff games, more Baseball rumors, and of course, the New York making me more suicidal by the day. So in this jam-packed weekend of sports, we are here to give you the three most significant headlines from across the pond in the Barclays Premier League.
Three: Harry Kane Just Keeps Breaking Records
It seems like every week now we have something else positive to report about Harry Kane. Whether it is finishing 2017 with more goals than Messi or Ronaldo, staying loyal to Tottenham, dominating the Golden Boot race or trolling his girlfriend, the guy is just the perfect human being. Now he is once again going in the Tottenham record books as he has the most Premier League goals for a Tottenham player in their history! This alone is an incredible achievement for someone under the age of 25, but to make it even more impressive, he did it in 101 fewer games than the record holder before him in Teddy Sheringham. Obviously, many people believe he may leave Spurs. Personally, I don't but its hard not to imagine him not breaking Alan Shearer's record.
Two: Arsenal Lose Again
After another disappointing weekend for Arsenal fans as this time they lost to Bournemouth away from home as everything seems to be going downhill for the North (South) London Club. This entire year has been a bit of a dark cloud for Arsenal, with Liverpool getting better, Manchester United and Chelsea spending more and more, Manchester City being Manchester City and now Spurs being a better team than them, there isn't much to be happy about. Now with them on the verge of Alexis Sánchez leaving for Manchester United, they just look in complete free fall. Now, it does look like they are making a HUGE signing in BVB striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but will this fix everything? No, because the club is toxic, the manager needs to go if this wants to be resolved, and he won't. For that reason, Arsenal WON'T make top four.
One: Manchester City Are No Longer "Invincible"
Well well well..... What did I say, on one of our podcasts I said that if Manchester City went unbeaten I would delete my website, and now I am here, laughing at all you who believed they would not lose a game all season, HA! Sadly, it was to Liverpool as now they will NEVER shut up about this even though their defense looked awful and still aren't guaranteed to finish in the Top Four. At the end of the day, who cares, Liverpool will drop points against a smaller club in the next few weeks and City will win the league in March. Sad!
Sorry about this not coming out earlier! Was moving back to Boston! Regular blogs come back tomorrow!
As I write this grossly hungover (And I didn't even need to pay my friend to go out with me this time!), we get back after a week of great games and upsets in the domestic cups of England to the Premier League. Before we start, I would like to shout out myself, I consider myself a humble guy, but my "Bobby Reid first goal scorer" in the Bristol City vs. Manchester City match was incredible. Now as I turn back to humble Judd, as we will have two picks, and of course, one will be an audio preview! So please, sit back, relax and enjoy.
Everton F.C. @ Tottenham Hotspur F.C. (-1.5) (Saturday)
Everton (+1.5): +105
Tottenham: (-1.5): -125
If 2017 has proved anything in the world, it's that many crazy things can happen in sports, but there is only one thing that will always stay the same, and that's Harry Kane scoring a shit ton of goals. After ending 2017 with the most goals in Europes top five leagues, he has started 2018 exceptionally well as he is coming off two goals against lower league team AFC Wimbledon. Now Harry Kane and Tottenham host Big Sam and Wayne Rooney as Everton come to Wembley. You may ask, Judd, why are you only talking about Harry Kane? And its because in seven games for Spurs against Everton, he has never lost and has five goals as like most teams in the league, Harry Kane pretty much scores every game against them. The away team Everton, are in a weird stage where they have seemed to have gotten out of any actual relegation fears but with playing some of the most boring football in the league, losing Ross Barkley, and just being super inconsistent, this would be a huge chance to show everyone that they aren't just Liverpool's little brother. All in all, this has a Spurs win all over it. Big Sam, will try to bore Spurs, but once Spurs get a goal, this game will open up, and I see this being an exciting and open match in the second half, even at 3.0 goals, I would bet the over.
Prediction: 3-1 Spurs

It feels gooooood to be writing again as after a week off for the New Year and to focus on podcasting; we are back giving you some picks in blog form as we have one pick (blog form) and one podcast! Sadly, due to my poor timing, I couldn't have gotten this out before the Merseyside Derby and the Manchester United match, but don't worry! There are still so many games to watch and make money on! So sit back, relax, and enjoy the picks!
Leicester City F.C. @ Fleetwood Town F.C.
One of the best things about the FA Cup is we get matches between clubs that would have never played before, or seem like they don't matter, but this match is kind of interesting! As we have the battle for Jamie Vardy as Mr. Vardy will face his old team in this match. As we know, Leicester is having a decent season as they are in eight place and coming off a game where they won 3-0. Even though Mahrez and most likely Vardy won't play in this match, their star power will be high as I see two players in particular playing and causing damage, and those players are Kelechi Iheanacho and Demarai Gray. What we see when a lower league side plays a good Premier League team is it starts slow, but after an hour, both teams open up, and pacey players start controlling the match. Lastly, Fleetwood are in 12th in their league, I watched them three times this season, and they are truly terrible. Easy win for Leicester.
Prediction: 2-0 Leicester
Chelsea F.C. @ Norwich F.C. (Podcast Preview)

Write-ups will be back on Friday!
Thank you for all the support, and we will be back tomorrow for an audio preview of West Ham @ Spurs! Happy New Year!
The Premier League matches are coming thick and fast as Friday is a day of rest before we are back with a HUGE round of fixtures to kiss 2017 goodbye! In this blog, we are back to doing two write-ups and a Podcast Preview! We will be crunching the numbers, calling the nerds and making some money for you guys as we can all use some after the mess that is the holiday period. So without further adieu, let's get into EVERYONE's favorite preview.
Everton F.C. @ A.F.C. Bournemouth
Southampton F.C. @ Manchester United F.C. (-1.5)
Southampton [+1.5]: +105
Manchester United [-1.5]: -125
Nothing would make me happier than telling you guys Manchester United will lose, Lukaku will suck and José Mourinho will have a hilarious breakdown ending 2017, but sadly, it won't happen. It's been an awful week for Manchester United's opponents Southampton as they were smoked by Tottenham and lost their star man, Virgil van Dijk to Liverpool for an arm and a leg. With 12 goals conceded in their last five, it's hard to fathom that Southampton won't concede in this match, and against a United team who looked good going forward in the second half against Burnley, I think they will win by a couple of goals.
Official Prediction: 2-0 Manchester United
Swansea City A.F.C @ Watford F.C.
Ever since "cohones-gate" Watford has been on a slow drop down the table as players have been getting injured and Troy Deeney is back being a fucking moron as he was banned for three matches following an idiotic red card. When it comes to Swansea, they are dead. Every year there is one team by Christmas who look defeated and are on the road of no return, and this season it's Swansea. Since losing Gylfi Sigurðsson and Fernando Llorente they have looked lost, and Bony hasn't helped them as much as he should in front of goal. I will keep this short because Watford will win.
Offical Prediction: 1-0 Watford
