We take a look at some of the potentially profitable markets from the 35th gameweek of the Premier League featuring Chelsea, Manchester United and more.
Manchester City will be looking to forget their gut-wrenching and controversial Champions League defeat as they face Tottenham again, this time to continue their hunt for the Premier League title. The action then takes us to Molineux, where Brighton & Hove Albion will aim to arrest their four-game losing streak, which sees them sit just two points above the relegation zone.
Newcastle United and Southampton will both have a chance to solidify their status in the Premier League as they face each other in the last game on Saturday. Sunday has three big teams with their own agendas.
The day kicks off with Manchester United trying to keep pace with other top four candidates against Everton, followed up by Arsenal aiming to take another positive step towards finishing in the top four as they face Crystal Palace in a London derby.
Liverpool are up against Cardiff City, who could climb above the relegation zone with a win, provided Brighton lose theirs. The away side though, will be looking to maintain their lead atop the Premier League, despite having played one game more. Chelsea and Burnley round up our gameweek with a Monday night fixture.
Before we move to the predictions, let us take a look at the result of the predictions from last gameweek.
Favourable Bets Result: 2/10
Underdog Bets Result: 1/4.
THT Favourable Bets Overall: 172/314
Everton vs Manchester United
A game that is essential to win for Manchester United after the Barcelona mauling, Everton will be looking to bounce back from their shock defeat at the hands of Fulham. Recent history suggests an Everton win is highly unlikely.
Solskjaer’s men should rally behind their top four ambitions and should get all three points against Marco Silva, who perhaps, is already looking towards the end of the season in order to rebuild his squad.
1. Manchester United to win @ 2.30
2. Marcus Rashford to score anytime @ 2.50
1. Manchester United to win to NIL @ 4.00
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace
The Gunners’ home form is what has kept them in the race for top four and they will be hoping it continues as Crystal Palace pay them a visit. While Palace’s last visit to Emirates wasn’t a memorable one for them, the Eagles have always tested Arsenal’s resolve and Roy Hodgson will be aiming to end the season with some positive results.
Expect an even encounter with goals in it.
1. Both Teams to Score – YES @ 1.66
2. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score anytime @ 1.57
1. Crystal Palace Draw No Bet @ 4.33
Cardiff City vs Liverpool
Liverpool are big favourites for the tie. But, considering the fact that Cardiff are fighting for their safety, there could be an argument that the home side would want a win as much as Liverpool. There have always been goals in this fixture and we expect the same on Sunday.
1. Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.53
2. Cardiff Asian Handicap + 2.0 @ 1.890
1. Over 4.5 Match Goals @ 4.00
Chelsea vs Burnley
That Chelsea are overwhelming favourites according to odds but Burnley come into the game as the more in-form side would be an understatement. The Blues were made to sweat by Slavia Prague on Thursday in order to secure their semi-final berth in the UEFA Europa League. Expect a shock result on Monday night, with Burnley tipped to get a point or three against Chelsea.
1. Burnley Asian Handicap + 2.0 @ 1.575
2. Chelsea Clean Sheet – NO @ 2.00
1. Full Time Result – Draw or Burnley @ 4.00
There are many interesting matches, ranging from Brighton’s aim to survive to Arsenal looking to secure a comfortable position in the race for top four. Manchester City should get the better of Tottenham on Saturday to keep their title hopes going in a positive direction.
1. Manchester City vs Tottenham – Manchester City Clean Sheet – YES @ 2.10
2. Bournemouth to beat Fulham @ 1.66
3. Watford to beat Huddersfield @ 1.90
