Aston Villa vs. Liverpool
Liverpool in the head-to-head at 1.44 (Picklebet)
Aston Villa have gone 1-1-5 as the home underdog over the last 12 months and they they have lost 6 of the last 8 games as the home underdog against Liverpool. Liverpool have gone 14-2-2 as the away favourite over the last 12 months.
Leeds vs. Chelsea
Chelsea in the head-to-head at 1.66 (BlueBet)
Leeds have gone 0-0-7 as the home underdog over the last 12 months. Their last four home defeats were all by 2+ goals and their last three defeats were by 3+ margins. To add to their personnel woes, defender Luke Ayling is suspended for the rest of the season for his red card offence against Arsenal. He joins the key injured pair of Stuart Dallas and Patrick Bamford on the sidelines. Looking at the interactive EPL form guide, Chelsea have won four of their last five away games against opponents who are outside the top 8. While Leeds have everything to play for, you can make a case that Chelsea do too. A top-four finish is no certainty, especially if Tottenham beat Arsenal the following day.
Leicester City vs. Norwich
Leicester City in the head-to-head at 1.44 (bet365)
Leicester City are in poor form, but this is a bet against Norwich, whose players appear to have gone on holiday since their relegation was confirmed. The Canaries’ last three games have seen them lose by a combined 9 goals to nil.
Watford vs. Everton
Everton in the head-to-head at 1.84 (Picklebet)
Watford have lost an eye-watering eleven consecutive home games and they have little to play for now that their relegation was confirmed. Everton have won back-to-back games to now have their destiny in their own hands, with the side currently out of the relegation zone with a game in hand over Burnley and Leeds. Everton have been poor away from home this season but their weekend away win over Leicester City will have given them real belief they can win this fixture.
Wolves vs. Man City
Man City in the head-to-head at 1.25 (Picklebet)
Man City are in devastating league form and their Champions League exit means the Premier League title remains their only chance of silverware this season. City’s last four Premier League fixtures resulted in 3-0, 5-1, 4-0 and 5-0 victories. Wolverhampton limp into this fixture in 0-1-3 form. They were held scoreless in three of those fixtures.
Tottenham vs. Arsenal
Tottenham in the head-to-head at 2.15 (bet365)
Tottenham +0.5 at 1.325 (bet365)
You have to go back to 2014 for the last time Arsenal won away against Tottenham in the league. Since then Spurs have gone 5-2-0 at home against the Gunners. Tottenham also boast a 5-2-0 record for the last seven games they were the home favourite against Arsenal. Both teams bring good form into this clash, with each winning 7 of their last 10 league games, but I will side with Tottenham due to the venue. Since 2014 neither side has won at their rival’s stadium in a league meeting.
