Chelsea vs. Wolves
Under 2.5 goals at 1.92 (PlayUp)
Both sides have struggled to score in recent weeks. Chelsea have scored just twice across their last three games while Wolverhampton have failed to score in their last three fixtures. The last two meetings between Chelsea and Wolverhampton ended in 0-0 stalemates. Wolverhampton’s last four away games went under 1.5 goals and over the last twelve months only 3 of their 19 away games went over this total. Four of the last five meetings between the two at Stamford Bridge went under 2.5 goals.
Crystal Palace vs. Watford
Crystal Palace in the head-to-head at 1.66 (BlueBet, Picklebet)
Last week Norwich were relegated at the hands of their manager’s previous club Aston Villa and this weekend could see Roy Hodgson’s Watford relegated at the hands of his old club Crystal Palace. Palace beat Watford 4-1 away from home in late February and Watford bring a five-game losing streak into this clash. In each of those five defeats they conceded 2+ goals. Palace have only lost once as the home favourite over the last 12 months.
Burnley vs. Aston Villa
Burnley in the head-to-head at 3.00 (Picklebet)
Burnley +0.5 at 1.575 (bet365)
Burnley have won three straight games as well as three straight home games. Their last two home wins came with clean sheets. Aston Villa have lost four of their last six games and they have lost five out of nine games as the away favourite. Sitting in the safety of mid-table, Aston Villa have less to play for than Burnley, who sit just two points above the relegation zone.
Arsenal vs. Leeds
Arsenal in the head-to-head at 1.45 (bet365, Picklebet)
Arsenal have rebounded from their mid-April slump with three successive wins – all of which were against sides ranked 7th or higher and two were by 2-goal margins. The Gunners boast a 13-2-1 record as the home favourite over the last 12 months. The injury-hit Leeds are now without key defender Stuart Dallas, who broke his leg last week. This is in addition to the absence of main striker Patrick Bamford, who isn’t expected back in time for this fixture. Leeds have gone 2-3-15 as the underdog over the last 12 months.
Leicester City vs. Everton
Leicester City in the head-to-head at 2.38 (Picklebet)
Leicester City +0.5 at 1.40 (Picklebet)
Leicester City welcomed back Jamie Vardy from injury last week. He should be fitter for having that game under his belt. The Foxes have gone 6-2-2 as the home favourite over the last 12 months while Everton have lost seven consecutive away games. The visitors have gone 2-3-12 away from home over the last 12 months.
