If you’re thinking about betting on premier league matches in the penultimate round of fixtures, here are some questions that need answered!

Who will escape relegation?

Best Bets at Bet365 Sportsbook

  • Man United to win
    1.91 (10/11)
  • Newcastle (-2) to win
    5.50 (9/2)
  • Hazard to score first
    8.50 (15/2)

Aston Villa are down, but the other two relegated places are not yet fixed: this weekend’s premier league matches may decide who does. Excluding Crystal Palace (who are safe in every sense bar mathematics) Newcastle lead the contenders, followed by Sunderland then Norwich.

Newcastle have been much improved lately, and face Aston Villa who… haven’t. Bet on Newcastle to win comfortably. A trickier task awaits Sunderland, who face a Chelsea side likely rejuvenated by their performance against Tottenham on Monday. Bet on Hazard to score again after his terrific strike that won the league for Leicester.

Back a resurgent Man United to see off Norwich, who have been struggling to put together form good enough to save them. The odds on Norwich to get relegated are low, but it does look like a safe bet. As for which of the North-East rivals will stay up, online sportsbooks in the UK can’t separate them: we reckon Newcastle should just scrape it!

Can Leicester celebrate the league in style?

  • Leicester v Everton Over 3.5 goals
    3.90 (29/10)
  • Arsenal to win
    2.90 (19/10)
  • Southampton to win
    3.90 (29/10)

If Tottenham had beaten Chelsea, the pressure would have been piled on Leicester for this game. As it turned out, this will be a celebration for the most remarkable winner ever (/gamblingnews/leicester-officially-the-most-unlikely-winners-ever-of-the-premier-league-9527). Will you bet on Leicester to win in style? Everton’s win against Bournemouth was only their second victory since September against a club not in the bottom three. They did well in the cup though, and may enjoy the spotlight, enjoying the chance to spoil Leicester’s party. Both attacks will likely shine but the defences (especially in the absence through suspension of Danny Drinkwater and Robert Huth) may take an off day. Bet on both teams scoring a couple.

Can Spurs recover?

After the “War of Stamford Bridge”, there were fears of points deductions and bans for many members of the Spurs squad. It turned out that only Dembele will be banned, along with Dele Alli so will serve the second game of his two match suspension for punching West Brom’s Claudio Yacob. Without two core players, Southampton will have a good chance hear. Bet on them to capitalise on a deflated spurs.

Will Arsenal and Man City somehow both lose?

In what seems like a lifetime ago, many were predicting that this game would be a title decider. Instead, Arsenal need a win to have any chance of second place, while a loss for City would put them a great risk of missing out on the Champions League. After City’s deflating loss to Real Madrid, bet on Arsenal to win.
