Saturday 05/05/18

05:00 Brighton vs Manchester United – AMEX Stadium

Brighton ($5.5)

Manchester United ($1.74)

Draw ($3.92)

Jose Mourinho will be hoping his Manchester United side can continue their strong finish to the season as they travel to face plucky Brighton on Friday evening. United came through their FA Cup semi-final against perennial chokers Tottenham before clinching a last minute win over Arsenal and can now focus on finishing 2nd in the Premier League – their highest league position for half a decade. Brighton currently sit 15th – 5 points above the relegation zone and Chris Hughton will be hoping his men can reach their 40 point target as soon as possible and their last 2 performances against Tottenham and Burnley in the last couple of weeks will give them huge encouragement. United could rotate with the FA Cup final looming but should still have enough to squeeze past Brighton.

Betting tip: Manchester United to win the game and both teams to score ($3.7) – BET NOW

Manchester United to win 2-1

21:30 Stoke City vs Crystal Palace – Bet 365 Stadium

Stoke City ($2.6)

Crystal Palace ($2.8)

Draw ($3.4)

Stoke City must pick up at least point to keep their survival battle alive as the prospect of relegation has become very real for Paul Lambert’s men, who currently sit 19th in the table, 3 points from safety, with only 3 games left to play. With the likes of Southampton & Swansea above them having a game in hand, this is absolutely must win for the Potters.  Crystal Palace and Roy Hodgson who’ve been threatened with relegation all season have defied the odds in their quest for survival and are now mathematically safe following their 5-0 thumping of Leicester City last time out. Palace sit 11th with 38 points to their name, potentially ideal opponents for Stoke here.

Betting tip: Stoke City to win the match ($2.6) – BET NOW

Stoke City to win 2-1


00:00 Bournemouth vs Swansea City – Vitality Stadium

Bournemouth ($2.2)

Swansea City ($3.6)

Draw ($3.5)

The relegation scrap comes to the fore once again on the south coast as Swansea travel to Bournemouth. The Cherries have showed real determination all season in preserving their top flight status and with 38 points to their name, they look all but safe this term despite three defeats on the spin which have left them in 12th position. Mathematical survival is the order of the day for Swansea, who aren’t clear of relegation trouble yet – having failed to win any of their last 5 PL matches. With 33 points from 35 games they are on course to just avoid the drop and they will be targeting matches like this to secure the points they need. Bournemouth won’t roll over here and it could be a tight game.

Betting tip: The match to end as a draw and both teams to score ($4.6) – BET NOW

1-1 Draw

00:00 Leicester City vs West Ham United – King Power Stadium

Leicester City ($2.2)

West Ham United ($3.4)

Draw ($3.5)

Another team yet to secure their Premier League safety are West Ham. David Moyes has struggled to win over the fans and players since his arrival and with only 3 games to play, they need to pick up points quickly. Leicester have steered clear of the drop under Claude Puel and currently sit in 9th position but they will be eager to bounce back from their disappointing results in recent weeks and they have relied too heavily on Jamie Vardy for goals this season. The Hammers are 15th, 3 points above the relegation zone and they are in the midst of a rotten run of form, epitomised by their 4-1 thumping at the hands of Manchester City. This could be a very even game between two sides with contrasting styles – with West Ham sure to be fighting for their lives.

Betting tip: The match to end as a draw and both teams to score ($4.5) – BET NOW

1-1 Draw

00:00 Watford vs Newcastle United – Vicarage Road

Watford ($2.5)

Newcastle United ($3.2)

Draw ($3.4)

An end-of season kick-about looks to be the order of the day in North London as two-teams immersed in the middle of the table face off, with their minds sure to be on their summer holidays. Watford started the campaign incredibly well but a drastic dip in form cost Marco Silva his job and Javi Gracia hasn’t really been able to address the demise as the Hornets currently sit 13th in the division with 38 points from 36 games played. Rafa Benitez’s men now have 41 points to their name following and Premier League safety is assured in the North East already although they will be looking to bounce back from their 1-0 home defeat to West Brom last time out. This could be an entertaining game between two teams eying up the summer break.

Betting tip: The match to end as a draw and both teams to score ($4.6) – BET NOW

2-2 Draw

00:00 West Bromwich Albion vs Tottenham – The Hawthorns

West Brom ($8)

Tottenham ($1.4)

Draw ($4.5)

This could be the day in which West Brom are finally put out of their misery in the Premier League but the manner in which Darren Moore has inspired West Brom in recent weeks has been admirable. They looked totally doomed and resigned to playing Championship football next season but they are finally showing some much needed resilience as the season draws to a close and a win here would give them belief of the ‘great escape’. Spurs have had another fine season, epitomised by their 4th place standing and 5 point lead over 5th placed Chelsea but their failure to deliver a trophy will once again be levelled at their squad. Tottenham bounced back against Watford but could find this one tricky, with West Brom sure to be up for the fight.

Betting tip: The match to end as a draw and both teams to score ($6.5) – BET NOW

1-1 Draw

02:30 Everton vs Southampton – Goodison Park

Everton ($3.05)

Southampton ($2.66)

Draw ($3.4)

Survival is back on the menu at Merseyside on Saturday evening as Mark Hughes takes his Southampton side to Goodison Park. Everton have been uninspiring under Sam Allardyce but have secured their Premier League status and although they don’t appear to have much to play other than pride, they are unbeaten in their last 4 matches. The Saints fell short in their FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea and their lack of goals all season looks to be having significant ramifications on their Premier League status. The Saints need to start picking up league points before it’s too late and their win over Bournemouth last time out has left them only a point from safety. Everton won’t roll over here and it could be a very even game.

Betting tip: The match to end as a draw and both teams to score ($4.5) – BET NOW

1-1 Draw

22:30 Manchester City vs Huddersfield Town – Etihad Stadium

Manchester City ($1.1)

Huddersfield Town ($41)

Draw ($13.5)

The Champions will be looking to continue their rich vein of form as Manchester City take on Huddersfield. The mood around the Etihad has been buoyant since clinching their 3rd league title and few would argue that City have been far and away the best team in England this season and Pep Guardiola is sure to want to see his team build upon their remarkable 16 point lead here. Huddersfield Town can secure their Premier League status as with a win and whilst Huddersfield have impressed in the Premier League, they are 16th with 35 points and will need to keep battling if they are to maintain their top-flight status. It should be a party atmosphere and a procession at the Etihad.

Manchester City to win 4-0


Monday 07/05/18

01:30 Arsenal vs Burnley – Emirates Stadium

Arsenal ($1.58)

Burnley ($6)

Draw ($4)

Arsene Wenger has ultimately paid the price for not winning over the fans domestically – epitomised by their position down in 6th place and failure to pick up a single point away from home in 2018 – but his Arsenal side continue to impress in their quest of Europa League glory this season and will be prioritising that. Burnley have been so impressive this season – sitting in 7th place, only 3 points behind Arsenal in 6th, leaving Sean Dyche in contention as one of the managers of the year in the Premier League following their latest unbeaten streak – leading the form table unbeaten in 7 games. This could be an entertaining game between two teams that should play with the shackles off but Arsenal should pick up the points in Wenger’s final home league game.

Betting tip: Arsenal to win the match and both teams to score ($3.4) – BET NOW

Arsenal to win 2-1

01:30 Chelsea vs Liverpool – Stamford Bridge

Chelsea ($2.2)

Liverpool ($3.3)

Draw ($3.7)

Liverpool welcome Chelsea to Anfield with their Champions League exploits sure to be on their minds. Having something to play for in May is a welcome change for Liverpool fans this season and their league form looks to have been affected by their European adventure, with back to back draws against West Bromwich Albion and Stoke. Antonio Conte has had a much better period in charge of the blues and has a cup final to look forward to later in the month. Although they are currently 5 points adrift in the race for Champions League football, they will want to put down a marker here and keep their decent run of form going. Liverpool could be fatigued by their European commitments which could encourage Chelsea, who have more to play for domestically.

Betting tip: Chelsea to win the match and both teams so score ($4.5) – BET NOW
