This is my first year playing. Is there always such little variation in the top few picks? Almost everyone is going with Man City, Liverpool, Tottenham (I'm guilty).

Pretty much. If you click on any of the prior years(excluding last year) vivi did a breakdown of picks by position.

Looking at the odds it would be silly to not have Man City or Liverpool in the top 2 (insert Leicester City quip here).

Manchester City -185
Liverpool +275
Tottenham +1800
Chelsea +2500
Manchester United +2500
Arsenal +4000
Everton +15000
Leicester City +15000
Wolverhampton +15000

Maybe the way to win is to throw in a few outliers further down the ladder but hard not to choose ManCity and Liverpool in the top two? I went with West Ham as a possible surprise team.
