Premier League betting tips: Magpies to steal points at Clarets; Bees look too strong

Sunday’s Premier League betting tips on last day of season

The Premier League reaches a thrilling climax on Sunday when the title, top four and relegation issues will all be settled.

We have already covered the Manchester City v Aston Villa and Liverpool v Wolves matches which will determine the Premier League champions, but we are focusing on four massive matches at opposite ends of the table.

Tottenham are 2/9 to win at Carrow Road or 11/2 to get the draw which will secure Champions League football next season, but we start our Premier League betting tips at Turf Moor where Burnley entertain Newcastle.

Burnley v Newcastle

The Clarets just need to match Leeds’ result at Brentford to spend a seventh successive season in the Premier League and they are priced at 6/5 to win or 23/10 to draw against the Magpies, whose manager Eddie Howe had an ill-fated 21-month spell as Burnley manager 10 years ago.

Newcastle were under threat of relegation before the takeover and the appointment of Howe, who has led United to safety and a potential top-half finish on the back of 11 wins in their last 19 matches, including Monday’s 2-0 victory over Arsenal which virtually ended the Gunners’ top-four hopes.

At his pre-match press conference, Howe left Burnley fans in no doubt about his approach to Sunday’s contest when he said: “I have to be absolutely clinical in my approach to the game. We’re here to win the game for Newcastle and we’re determined to do that.

“We will prepare as best we can. We’re determined to try to have a very similar performance to Arsenal in terms of mentality and attitude to the game, so the only thoughts I have are for Newcastle, not for Burnley.”

Nick Pope’s heroics in goal handed Burnley a survival lifeline in a thrilling 1-1 draw at Aston Villa on Thursday night which moved them out of the relegation zone in a match which saw interim manager Mike Jackson deploy the fit-again James Tarkowski in a five-man defence.

Matt Lowton is suspended following his red card and we suspect the Lancastrians will come up short against a motivated Newcastle team that are 9/4 to win as the first of our Premier League betting tips.

Brentford v Leeds (Sun, 14.00, Sky Sports)

Pascal Struijk’s dramatic equaliser against Brighton last weekend gave Leeds hope of beating the drop, but Burnley’s draw at Villa Peak means their fate is out of their hands heading to west London where Brentford are hoping to conclude their season with a third successive victory.

The Bees twice trailed at Goodison Park last time out, but two quickfire second-half goals sealed a 3-2 win against Everton, who played over 70 minutes of the game with 10 men following an early red card.

Leeds have a lengthy list of absentees which includes suspended duo Luke Ayling and Dan James, plus injury crocks Stuart Dallas, Patrick Bamford and Adam Forshaw, so they are up against it on Sunday.

United had a much stronger starting XI when Bamford earned Leeds a point against the Bees in the fifth minute of stoppage time at Elland Road in December, so it’s hard to avoid siding with Thomas Frank’s team at 11/8 as the next of our Premier League tips.

Norwich v Tottenham

A point would be enough for Spurs to guarantee Champions League football next season, but they are likely to do better than that having run out 3-0 winners when they hosted the Canaries in December.

Relegated Norwich have lost every home game against the top seven this season, so it is unsurprsing they are 10/1 to do Spurs’ arch rivals Arsenal a massive favour by winning at Carrow Road.

City drew 1-1 at out-of-sorts Wolves last weekend but lost their previous four at an aggregate of 12-0, so a win to nil for the visitors looks the way to go at 21/20 as the next of our Premier League betting tips.

Norwich, the Premier League’s lowest scorers with 23 goals, have failed to find the net in 21 of their 37 matches and that was the case in five of their six matches against top-seven sides.

Arsenal v Everton

The atmosphere is expected to be gloomy among Arsenal fans at the Emirates unless Norwich give the home faithful hope by going ahead against Tottenham.

Everton supporters, on the other hand, should be in fine voice having watched their team secure Premier League safety by overcoming a 2-0 half-time deficit to beat Crystal Palace 3-2 at Goodison Park.

The Toffees have won the last three meetings with the Gunners, but they gave it their all on Thursday, so Frank Lampard may take the opportunity to rest some of his heroes now that the job is done.

That said, the atmosphere may turn flat if Spurs start to take control at Carrow Road, so we’ll go with the visitors to win or draw at 21/10 in the double chance market as the last of our Premier League tips.
