Wembley takes center stage this weekend as the round 27 of the English top flight gets ready for the North London derby – Tottenham v Arsenal. 90,000 fans will rush to the stadium to get a glimpse of the high-profile match – the highest attending Premier League game – one final time as the Spurs will relocate to their new ground from next season, which will feature a capacity 30,000 less than that of Wembley. Besides this game, don’t miss out on all the other action scheduled for this round, so take a quick look at our betting preview to know what to wager on.
Tottenham v Arsenal – H 10/11 (1.95) D 11/4 (3.75) A 5/2 (3.50)
This weekend will kick off with a spectacular game that can be dubbed “The Battle of London” considering the great rivalry between the two sides. Tottenham have the upper hand in this game, since they’ll be playing at home (despite it being Wembley) with the vast majority of the stadium being Spurs fans. And on top of that, they’ve enjoyed better form in recent encounters that has seen them clinch 2 wins and 3 draws over the last 5 games, which is why they’re the favourites with online sportsbooks in UK.

The Emirates side sit one place below their greatest rivals, in 6th position with 45 points to their name. At the moment, Arsene Wenger’s men find themselves outside of the top five that grants them qualification to Europe (Champions League and Europa League) next season, so they have the get all the points they can, otherwise it would spell disaster for both the manager and the club. But we’re pretty sure that Tottenham will be able to pull this one off, albeit with a slim goal margin.
Southampton v Liverpool – H 16/5 (4.20) D 14/5 (3.79) A 4/5 (1.80)
Liverpool perhaps had an unfortunate game against Tottenham last weekend, to put it mildly. Let’s just say the Spurs were greatly “assisted” by the ref’s decision towards the end of the match, otherwise the game could have gone another way. This upcoming weekend, the Reds have a chance to make up the lost points as they’ll go head to head with Southampton – a side many Liverpool players used to play for.

Although the game will be played at St. Mary’s Stadium, we’re backing Liverpool to take home the all-important 3 points; Jurgen Klopp’s men have the 3rd best away record in the league, so it’s really no surprise their chances are high for this match, so make sure to make use of the high odds that are being offered by providers of internet betting in UK.
Chelsea v West Brom – H 1/3 (1.33) D 17/4 (5.25) A 7/1 (8.00)
The last game of round 27 will see Premier League defending champions Chelsea host West Brom as part of Monday night football, so watch out for this encounter as well when you’re placing your bets. Over the last 5 matches, the London side have recorded 2 draws, 1 victory and in the last two games they’ve lost to Bournemouth and then to Watford.
Luckily for Antonio Conte, West Brom are the worst-performing team in the league this season; currently sitting in last position with only 20 points to their name, so we’re backing Chelsea to snatch an easy win and get back to their winnings ways, before the Italian manager get sacked for his performances, but more so for his disagreements with the club’s board.
