My two midweek bets resulted in a 0.76 Unit loss after only one of them hit.
Liverpool put in one of their best performances in weeks to beat Manchester United 4-2. Chelsea did everything right in their game against Arsenal except score. Thomas Tuchel’s side dominated possession, created 19 chances, and rattled the woodwork, but it wasn’t to be as Emile Smith Rowe capitalized on a calamitous back pass from Jorginho.

NEWCASTLE VS MANCHESTER CITY BETTING TIPS
Manchester City have won the title, but they won’t take their foot off the gas just yet. On May 29th, they face Chelsea in the Champions League final at the Estadio do Dragao in Porto, Portugal. This could be the only chance some of these players ever get to play in club football’s biggest game. Every one of them who Pep Guardiola gives an opportunity to will go all out to impress as they try to play their way into his plans.
Their opponents Newcastle have confirmed their Premier League status for one more season. In the past, we’ve seen many players and teams switch off in the final games of the season when they have nothing left to play for, and that’s the theme for all of my bets this Matchday. The whole club will be relaxed, and the players will be thinking about their summer holidays even more because they didn’t get one last year.
Steve Bruce will be without his biggest goal threat Callum Wilson for his sides’ final three games after he picked up a hamstring injury in their 4-2 victory over Leicester City in Matchday 35. He joins Karl Darlow, Isaac Hayden, Jamaal Lascelles, and Ryan Fraser on the sidelines whilst Fabian Schär serves the second of his three-match ban.
Manchester City will run out comfortable winners.
Prediction – 3 Units: Manchester City -1.5 Goal Handicap -132 | 1 Unit: Manchester City -2.5 Goals +195
WEST BROM VS LIVERPOOL BETTING TIPS
This game is a similar situation to City’s against Newcastle. Liverpool’s 4-2 victory over Manchester United have given them a slight chance of making the Top 4. A win here will ramp up the pressure on Chelsea, and Leicester City and Jurgen Klopp will get his players up for this game.
West Brom are relegated to the Championship and have nothing but pride to play for. I don’ think they will get much motivation from Sam Allardyce as he deals with the pain of being relegated from the Premier League for the first time in his career. After defeat to Arsenal on Sunday, he said “words cannot describe” how much it hurts, and it remains to be seen if he will stay at The Hawthorns or move on.
Back Liverpool to win by 2 or 3 goals.
Prediction – 2 Units: Liverpool -1.5 Goal Handicap -130
MANCHESTER CITY AND LIVERPOOL -1.5 GOAL HANDICAP PARLAY
I’ve made strong cases for both sides above, and the value of combining both of them into a Parlay is too good to turn down.
Prediction – 2 Units: Manchester City and Liverpool -1.5 Goal Handicap Parlay +212
BURNLEY VS LEEDS UNITED BETTING TIPS
Leeds United have been a breath of fresh air to the league this season, playing some brilliant, high-intensity attacking football. Marcelo Bielsa demands his players give 100% 24/7 and will want them to finish the season strong with a top-half finish their’s to lose. They currently sit in 10th, and their recent form has been decent with four wins, three draws, and one defeat in their last eight games.
Burnley beat Fulham 2-0 on Monday to relegate Scott Parker’s side and preserve their own Premier League status. Sean Dyche has done a remarkable job to keep them up with essentially the same group of players after spending just $1.21 million on signings this season. Everyone at the club can relax after a job well done and enjoy the off-season.
Put your money behind Leeds to collect 3 points.
Prediction – 2 Units: Leeds United Money Line +128
