Hull City vs To be relegated by TommyC
First off, Im not sure if this kind of bet is allowed so feel free to delete Mods if you see fit.
The bet here is for Hull City to finish in the bottom 3 and be relegated.
As I see it, I think Leicester will go down and its any two between Burnley, Qpr, Hull, Aston Villa and Sunderland to join them.
Just looking at Hulls games left and its hard to see them picking up too many points,
Southampton, Palace and Tottenham away are 3 very tricky ties, they do have 4 home ties but look who they face, Liverpool, Arsenal, Burnley and Manchester United on the final day. That is about as difficult a run in as you could get and I honestly cant see them picking up any more than 6 points from that possible 21.
Burnley have games left against Arsenal, Everton, Leicester, West Ham, Stoke, Hull and Villa, also a difficult ask but a slightly more friendly looking list!
Qpr have picked up a draw and a win in their last 2 but despite all the losses have been playing ok, just poor defensively and I think they may sneak to safety, with Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City in their run in though, they also do have tricky games. However they will be confident they can take something from West Ham, Leicester and Newcastle.
Villa look rejuvenated under Tim Sherwood and really have too good a team to go down, however their next 3 games against Tottenham, Liverpool and Man City will tell alot.
Sunderland are back to their old unpredictable ways, a 1 - 0 win against Newcastle last week was a massive result and they will hope to pick up points from their next 5 games against Palace, Stoke, Southampton, Everton or Leicester before their final two games against Arsenal and Chelsea.
All in all its very tight, Ive gone for Hull simply because they have the toughest run in of all the teams, I also havent seen much from them lately to suggest that they can turn things around, while all of the other teams have displayed a bit of fight and taken points here and there, Hull have slumped into the botton 4 with just 2 points taken from their last possible 15.
The price seems good enough to me!
