Premier League betting tips: Could Blues spoil City’s title party?
Manchester City can win the Premier League title this weekend, but Fulham and West Brom may both be relegated after just one season in the top flight.
This weekend’s action gets under way on Friday night and ends with Monday’s relegation clash between the Cottagers and Burnley, but in between the best match is undoubtedly Manchester City’s match against Chelsea in a dress rehearsal for the Champions League final where the hosts are 10/11 to repeat their win at Stamford Bridge.
We take a look at some of the matches to help punters with their Premier League betting tips.
Manchester City v Chelsea
Chelsea were sensational against 13-time European champions Real Madrid and should have won more handsomely than the 2-0 scoreline at Stamford Bridge.
Kai Havertz could have had a hat-trick, but instead they had to settle for goals from Timo Werner and Mason Mount in setting up a clash with Manchester City in Istanbul later this month.
The Blues beat City 1-0 in the FA Cup semi-final and are 7/4 in the win/draw no bet market, while they are 10/3 to put City’s title-winning party on ice by winning at the Etihad Stadium.
West Ham v Everton
Fourth place will guarantee a place in the Champions League now that Arsenal have been eliminated from the Europa League, so West Ham must double their efforts to catch Chelsea who are three points ahead of the fifth-placed Hammers.
West Ham have the second-best home record in the Premier League and have enjoyed 2-1 and 3-2 victories over Tottenham and Leicester respectively at home in the last few months, while the Blues have won just one of their last seven.
David Moyes’ side to win and both teams to score is 13/4, whereas a Hammers victory and over 2.5 goals is available at 13/5.
Aston Villa v Manchester United
United have not lost a Premier League game at Villa Park since 1995 and are undefeated in 24 away games, so history and form certainly seems to be on the side of the Red Devils who are 4/5 to win on Sunday.
United are in the middle of a tough stretch which has been made more cramped by the postponement of their clash with Liverpool.
Three of their last five away games have ended goalless which can be backed at 12/1, while a draw is 11/4.
However, United have won a league-high 28 points from losing positions this season and are 17/2 to win from behind.
