Premier League Betting Odds: Reds Closer To Champions League

Premier League Betting Odds: Reds Closer To Champions League

Manchester City may have the Premier League title sewn up, but there’s still a lot to be settled in England’s top flight. The fight for European places and the battle for survival is starting to heat up with just a few weeks left of what has been another fascinating Premier League season.

Check out our odds comparison, top tips and predictions on the biggest games taking place this weekend, including Sunday’s showdown between old rivals Manchester United and Arsenal.

Liverpool v Stoke City: Reds Too Strong for the Potters

The Premier League weekend kicks off at Anfield as Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool and Paul Lambert’s Stoke City lock horns. A Reds win will all but guarantee them a place in the top four, while defeat for Stoke will practically confirm their relegation.

Liverpool’s main focus will be on Roma, which is Stoke’s best chance of nicking something at Anfield. The Potters have huffed and puffed to no avail in recent weeks, winning just once under Lambert.

Klopp will want his side to book their place in the top four as soon as possible, so the Reds should come out in top in this one. The home team are available at odds of 1/3 (Pinnacle), while the best betting odds you can get on the Stoke victory are 19/2 at Betfair.

Even if Liverpool do have one eye on their Champions League tie with Roma, the Merseyside outfit should still be too strong for Lambert’s strugglers on Saturday. We feel there’s good value in Bet365’s odds of 13/2 for the hosts to win 2-0.

Swansea City v Chelsea: Blues to Leave Wales with All Three Points

Carlos Carvalhal’s Swansea City still have a little bit of work to do in the race for survival. This Saturday evening, the Swans welcome Antonio Conte’s Chelsea to the Liberty Stadium for a crucial Premier League fixture.

Swansea were on the wrong end of a five-star show by Man City last Sunday, falling to a heavy 5-0 defeat at the Etihad Stadium. Meanwhile, the Blues eased past Southampton to reach the Emirates FA Cup final.

The Swans’ destiny is still well and truly in their own hands, but defeat to Chelsea on Saturday will just add more pressure on the Welsh club. Conte’s side have been nowhere near their best in 2018, but we can see them winning in South Wales this Saturday.

The home team are priced at 15/2 (Bet365) to cause an upset on their own patch, whereas the Londoners are available at 11/20 with Betfair. We fancy Chelsea to win minus two on the handicap, which you can get at the best betting odds of 4/1 with Coral according to the odds comparison.

West Ham United v Manchester City: Easy Win for the Champions

After brushing Swansea aside last weekend, Pep Guardiola’s Man City will be looking for another big win when they make the trip to the London Stadium to face David Moyes’ West Ham United this Sunday.

Despite a decent showing at the Emirates Stadium last weekend, the Hammers imploded in the last 10 minutes in their eventual 4-1 away defeat to Arsenal. A couple of hours later, the Citizens smashed Swansea 5-0 at the Etihad.

West Ham are not out of the woods just yet in terms of relegation, and this could be another long afternoon for the Irons. 9/1 (Bet365) are your best odds for a home win, with the draw available at 53/12 with Pinnacle.

City are odds-on to leave London with all three points, so we’re predicting the champions to win comfortably. Bet365 are offering the tempting betting odds of 9/1 for Man City to prevail by a 3-0 scoreline on Sunday.

Manchester United v Arsenal: All Square Between These Great Rivals at Old Trafford

Arsene Wenger will go head-to-head with old rivals Man Utd for one last time as Arsenal manager on Sunday. The Frenchman has been involved in several ding-dong battles with the Red Devils over the years, which way will this one go at Old Trafford?

Jose Mourinho’s men look nailed on to finish runners-up to Man City, they are also in next month’s FA Cup final. Overall, it has not been a bad season for Jose at Old Trafford, despite his critics.

As for Arsenal, despite another disappointing Premier League campaign, the north London club have made it through to the final four of the UEFA Europa League, which will now be number one priority for the Gunners.

Although these games are not quite as big as they once were, with this being Wenger’s last matchup against Man Utd, both teams will want to win this one. We can see it being close at Old Trafford, so back the draw at nice odds of 4/1 with Coral.

Tottenham Hotspur v Watford: Back to Winning Ways for Spurs

The Premier League action continues through to Monday as Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur host Javier Gracia’s Watford at Wembley Stadium. After a shaky last couple of weeks, Spurs will be looking to get back on track here.

Tottenham will be kicking themselves after letting a lead slip to lose 2-1 to Man Utd in the FA Cup semi-final last weekend. Spurs’ advantage in the top four has been whittled down to five points by Chelsea, too. By the time this one kicks off, the Blues could be just two points behind the Lilywhites.

Watford have yet again done enough to keep themselves in the Premier League despite being favourites for the drop each year. The bookies are not giving them much hope at Wembley, though, pricing the away win at huge odds of 22/1 (Ladbrokes).

This should be a routine win for Tottenham, and we feel there’s good value in Betfair’s decent betting odds of 13/10 for the home team to win -2.
