A frantic EPL season comes to a close this weekend, with many teams playing for nothing but pride. Expect plenty of goals as tactics may be left in the changing room on the final day.
Arsenal vs Everton (Over 2.5 – 1.64)
The Gunners must win if they are to have any hope of finishing in the top 4. However they face an Everton side that pose a dangerous attacking threat with Premier League top scorer Romelu Lukaku in their ranks. With the home side having to force the game to get the win, and the Toffee’s dangerous on the break, we see over 2.5 as a good call here.
Chelsea vs Sunderland (Over 2.5 – 1.65)
The champions played out a thrilling 4-3 win against Watford on Monday night, and it is likely they will finish the season on a high by putting already relegated Sunderland to the sword. David Moyes’ side provided stubborn resistance against Arsenal in their last game, so while they won’t be completely embarrased, over 2.5 is likely given Chelsea’s attacking quality.
Leicester City vs Bournemouth (1 – 1.84)
The sacking of Claudio Ranieri proved to be a pivotal moment in the season for Leicester, with Craig Shakespeare’s appointment saving them from a relegation dogfight, and offering hope for next season. The Foxes were unlucky not to get a point against Man City last week, and seeing as they have a 100% league record at the Kingpower since their change of manager, backing the home win seems the right move.
Liverpool vs Middlesbrough (Home to win both halves – YES)
Betting on Liverpool can be dangerous given their inconsistent form against the lesser sides. But seeing as Middlesbrough are already relegated, we feel Klopp’s side will dominate the game from start to finish against a team that are likely to thinking about their summer holidays.
Watford vs Manchester City (GG – 1.94)
Man City need the win here to guarantee Champions League qualification,and given that they have scored in 12 of their last 13 games they should get on the scoresheet here against a leaky home defence. However at home and on the final day Watford won’t go down without a fight, and they couldknick a goal given City’s similar defensive shortcomings.
Hull City vs Tottenham (2 – 1.67)
Hard to see anything other than a Tottenham win here. They will be especially motivated to end 2016/17 on a high, given their embarrassing 5-1 loss to Newcastle on the final day of last season. With Harry Kane still in the battle for the Golden Boot, expect Spurs to ease to victory against a a Hull side that have lacked the quality necessary to stay in the Premier League.
