Remember To Visit The Fantasy Sports Page To Apply For My Fantasy Football League!

SFTC 8/19/12
Chelsea Wins by 2+ @ Wigan Win, Draw, Lose By 1
Here we have an EPL matchup to start the day. Last year, Chelsea finished 6th in the league, and did not play up to their full potential, probably because they were in the Champions League towards the end of the season. They finished with 64 points and a goal differential of 19. Meanwhile, Wigan finished 15th in the league with 43 points and a goal differential of -20.

My Pick: Wigan Win, Draw, Lose By 1
Why: I think Chelsea will experience a huge dropoff with no Drogba anymore. I like Wigan to keep the game close at home. However, I expect a 1-0 or 2-1 Chelsea victory.

Manchester City 3+ @ Southampton Win, Draw, Lose by 2 or 1
Last year, Manchester City finished in 1st place in the league with 89 points and a goal differential of 64. Meanwhile, Southampton finished in second place in the 2nd tier league in England with 88 points and a goal differential of 39.

My Pick: Southampton Win, Draw, Lose by 2 or 1
Why: I think Man City will be able to beat Southampton pretty easily, and finish at a score of 2-0 or 3-1. I think Southampton being at home will help to make sure Man City doesn't score 3 more goals than them

Roger Federer vs Novak Djokovic
Here we have a matchup of the #1 and #2 tennis players in the world. Federer leads the series 15-12. The match will be played on hard court, and Djokovic has won the last 5 hard court matches played between these two. Federer won the last matchup in Wimbledon, but Djokovic won both matchups on clay including a matchup in the French Open.we
