At the start of the season when we announced Hotshot Jackpot, who’d have thought that it would be won five times by May? Certainly not Paddy, who has been shelling out his dough quicker than my Mum at a garden centre.
It’s looking like it will be won for the sixth time this evening. Chelsea take on Watford, despite the fact they’ll probably still be pissed out of their heads from title celebrations, and 160 people are hopeful of bagging a share of the £250,000 Jackpot.
They were helped on the way by pretty much every Premier League favourite bagging three points this weekend, meaning a feast of goals, which ultimately made it easier to predict those lucky eight anytime goalscorers.
The most popular selection of the week, with over 73% of selections, was Crystal Palace’s Christian Benteke. Big Sam’s side hosted struggling Hull, and sent them down to the Championship with a 4-0 win.
15 – Christian Benteke has scored 15 PL goals this season; the most since 2012-13, his debut campaign in English football (19). Mojo.
