We take a look at some of the potentially profitable markets from the 30th gameweek of the Premier League featuring Arsenal vs Manchester United and more.
Saturday has most of the relegation scraps battling it out for edge in the race for survival. Crystal Palace and Bournemouth can push themselves closer to the magical 38-point mark at the cost of Brighton and Huddersfield respectively. Newcastle United will hope to return to winning ways when they host Everton.
Southampton will be up against a Tottenham side that could very well be dragged into the top four race after slipping away from the top 2 in terms of points. Manchester City will look to maintain or even extend their lead at the top as they host Watford.
Liverpool kick things off on Sunday at Anfield, but face a tricky test against a Burnley side that have lost some steam but are still a team to be taken seriously. Sixth-placed Chelsea go up against Wolves, who are seventh in the Premier League right now. Arsenal and Manchester United draw curtains on the 30th gameweek with a renewal of rivalries at Emirates.
Before we move to the predictions, let us take a look at the result of the predictions from last gameweek.
Favourable Bets Result: 6/8
Underdog Bets Result: None from four.
THT Favourable Bets Overall: 159/286
Liverpool vs Burnley
Four draws in their last six Premier League games have seen the Reds lose their massive lead atop the Premier League table and now trail Manchester City by a point. Burnley are still only five points above the relegation zone and must seek at least three more wins from the remaining matches to be ‘safe’.
Both the teams have scored in their last four meetings and we should see the stats repeat itself.
1. Both Teams to Score – YES @ 2.20
2. Burnley Asian Handicap + 2.0 @ 2.090
1. Correct Scoreline – Liverpool 2-1 Burnley @ 9.50
Chelsea vs Wolves
Wolves have a poor recent history while playing against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea have improved their form after the drubbing received at the hands of Manchester City. While Wolves have been tremendous this season, Chelsea should earn a hard-fought win on Sunday to keep the pressure on the teams around them.
1. Chelsea to win @ 1.53
2. Under 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.90
1. Correct Scoreline – Chelsea 2-0 Wolves @ 8.00
Arsenal vs Manchester United
Manchester United and Arsenal are on the opposite end of the form and morale spectrum. One scripted history by being the first side to come back from a 2-0 home leg deficit to advance at the cost of PSG while the other suffered an embarrassing defeat at the hands of Rennes in the first leg in UEFA Europa League.
Despite the spate of injuries, there is no real reason to back Arsenal, except maybe the fact that Unai Emery might want a reaction from his side. United though, clear favourites according to form.
1. Full Time Result – Draw or Manchester United @ 1.57
2. Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.66
1. Manchester United to win @ 3.00
There are many crunch fixtures this weekend. Crystal Palace should make light work of Brighton as should Bournemouth when they go up against a struggling Huddersfield side. Leicester should bounce back from their first loss under Brendan Rodgers with a win over Fulham.
Tottenham and Southampton will be a tricky fixture but Manchester City should continue their winning run when they face Watford.
1. Southampton vs Tottenham – Both Teams to Score – YES @ 1.70
2. Bournemouth to beat Huddersfield @ 2.35
3. Crystal Palace to beat Brighton @ 1.83
4. Leicester City to beat Fulham @ 1.57
1. Newcastle United vs Everton – Full Time Result – Draw @ 3.25
2. Cardiff City vs West Ham United – Full Time Result – Draw @ 3.50
