Well, well, well… there’s congestion atop our Premier League picks leaderboard as UEFA Champions League play seemingly delivered on its promise to level the league playing field.

Man City and Liverpool drawing Aston Villa and Everton, respectively, caught our boys off guard as not one went for an upset, and life could’ve been even dicier had West Ham’s equalizer not been taken away by VAR (Granted West Ham was also congested).

Do Joe Prince-Wright, Andy Edwards, and Nick Mendola feel that this was a one-off, given last weekend’s Premier League postponements, or will one, two, or more PL teams in Europe again be upset fodder this weekend?

Let’s dig in.

PST’s Premier League picks standings after Week 6

Considering that winning requires getting the correct result (win, loss, or draw), getting a ‘W’ in picks isn’t all that easy.

A variety of Week 6 surprises like Man City’s draw with Aston Villa and Bournemouth’s win at Forest made sure that wins were downright scarce as Andy climbed into an even record with Nick.

28 wins is the new benchmark, with JPW creeping two wins back.



JPW 3-7

Andy 3-7

Nick 2-8


Nick Mendola, 28-32

Andy Edwards, 28-32

Joe Prince-Wright, 26-34
