The title may have been won and the likely destination of the European places seems clear, but there’s still plenty for sports betting fans to focus on with Premier League betting this weekend.
In fact, the outcome of some of these football games could even decide who survives and who loses their top-flight status.
Time and matches are running out fast.
WEEK 36 SATURDAY:
Liverpool vs Stoke City
After blowing away Roma in the Champions League semi-finals, Jurgen Klopp’s men can all but seal a top-four spot with a victory against Stoke.
At the same time, the Potters, without a win in 11 matches, must grab at least a point at Anfield if they are to realistically keep alive their fading survival hopes.
Four points from safety with three games to go, is boss Paul Lambert about to lose his proud record of keeping every club he has managed in the Premier League?
Burnley vs Brighton & Hove Albion
The maths are simple.
Should Burnley win, they are virtually in Europe next season. Should Brighton win, they are virtually safe.
It could be a tense afternoon at Turf Moor.
Crystal Palace vs Leicester City
With their Euro hopes all but over, 2016 champions Leicester City could see their season peter out over the closing weeks of the campaign.
Palace can’t afford that luxury but know victory will be a massive leap towards their own safety.
With Wilfried Zaha a constant threat and often a target for opposition challenges, his boss Roy Hodgson feels his star man was unfairly treated in last weekend’s goalless draw with Watford when he was booked for diving.
Huddersfield Town vs Everton
It’s hard not to feel sorry for Sam Allardyce, a better manager than many give him credit for.
He has done exactly what was required of him when appointed in late November. He has not only guided the Toffees to safety but lifted them up to eighth place in the table.
David Wagner and Huddersfield are clinging onto safety—which would be a fine achievement—but must take something from this with their final three matches all against sides in the top six.
Newcastle United vs West Bromwich Albion
Victory at Old Trafford and a stirring fightback against Liverpool have restored some pride to the Baggies and their supporters in recent weeks.
However, the stark truth is that West Brom are just days from relegation.
It will likely be confirmed against a Newcastle side which has so much to thank boss Rafa Benitez for.
Southampton vs Bournemouth
Like West Brom before them, the Saints have shown slight improvement under Mark Hughes.
Yet, anything other than victory in the South Coast derby and their six-year stay in the Premier League will be over.
How Bournemouth, who need another two points to be certain of safety themselves, would love to claim bragging rights.
WEEK 36 SUNDAY:
Swansea City vs Chelsea
Swansea welcome FA Cup finalists Chelsea to the Liberty Stadium four points above the drop zone.
To stave off relegation would be a fine achievement for Carlos Carvalhal, who has overseen a dramatic upturn in fortune during the second half of the campaign.
Deposed champions Chelsea have a slim chance of Champions League qualification and must return from Wales with maximum points to stay in the hunt.
West Ham United vs Manchester City
The Hammers are six points from the drop zone and David Moyes has done the job asked of him when appointed to succeed Slaven Bilic.
Can he now all but secure safety with a few matches to spare?
Newly crowned champions City will try and extend their run as they go in search of becoming the first Premier League side to claim 100 points in a season.
WEEK 36 TUESDAY:
Tottenham Hotspur vs Watford FC
After the disappointment of an FA Cup semi-final defeat to Manchester United, Spurs go in search of a top three and, possibly, a third successive second-place finish.
That would be a fine achievement, especially given the club has had a temporary home at Wembley while White Hart Lane is redeveloped.
Watford have had travelling travails but should have done just enough during a season in which the Hornets’ managerial merry-go-round has continued apace.
