The 2018/19 Premier League season concludes this weekend and with the title race third place still to be decided, there are plenty of important matches taking place. Our tipster has looked at the 10 fixtures and found five betting tips.
The biggest match of the weekend, and the season, comes from the AMEX Stadium where Man City know that a win guarantees them the Premier League title. It will undoubtably be a nervy day for City and they’ll want to get into an early lead to settle the nerves. Brighton fans will be celebrating survival despite being really poor towards the end of the season, and I don’t think they’ll put up much of a fight against Pep Guardiola’s team. Brighton failed to score in three home matches in a row before drawing 1-1 against Newcastle and with City’s solid defence of late (four clean sheets in a row), the first Premier League betting tip for the last weekend of the season is for Man City to win to nil.
Odds for Man City to win to nil vs Brighton – 20/23.
Bournemouth have scored eight goals in their previous two Premier League away matches – a 3-3 draw at Southampton and 5-0 win at Brighton. Goals are predicted once again here but the bookies agree with us and the best odds are just 1/2. Crystal Palace have had a mixed season but comfortably avoided relegation and have once again been relying on Wilfried Zaha. They’ve won four of their last seven since getting knocked out of the FA Cup by Watford and they’ve also only won one of their last six at home.
For our Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth betting tip we’re looking at the anytime goalscorer odds here and going with Callum Wilson. He’s scored three in his last four matches now he’s back from injury and could get on the scoresheet in a match that is expected to have a few goals in.
Odds for Callum Wilson to score vs Crystal Palace – 8/5.
Fulham have already been relegated from the Premier League but they have since been playing well, with two home wins in a row against Everton and Cardiff City. They’ve also beaten Bournemouth away from home but lost 1-0 at Wolves last time out. Newcastle were unlucky not to get a point against Liverpool last weekend and have only won one of their last 10 away games. They are scoring goals though and we could have another high scoring match here, our betting tip is for Fulham to win and both teams to score. Rafa Benitez’ side have scored in three of their last four away Premier League fixtures.
The odds for Fulham to win and both teams to score against Newcastle – 10/3.
With a top four place secured and a place in the 2019 Europa League final also in the bag, it is hard to predict whether Chelsea will rest players for this last game of the Premier League season. There is still over two weeks until the final against Arsenal, but there will be some fatigue in the Chelsea players after 120 minutes against Frankfurt in the semi-final. Leicester have been impressive under Brendan Rodgers and were beaten by a Vincent Kompany wonder goal on Monday night. They beat Arsenal 3-0 in their last home match and for our tips, we’re taking a chance on Leicester finishing the season on a high here.
The odds for Leicester to beat Chelsea – 7/5.
The last of our betting tips for the last weekend of the Premier League season comes from the Champions League finalists Tottenham Hotspur. They put up a remarkable second half comeback in Amsterdam at the weekend but will be without Heung Min Son for this game due to suspension. Everton have been very good of late, but mainly at home, however they’ll fancy their chances of finally beating a top six side away from home after wins over Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United at Goodison Park in recent weeks. However, for our football tip here, we’re going to bet on this being a classic end of season high scoring match and go with over 2.5 goals.
As with the Chelsea match above, we’re not sure what team Spurs manager Pochettino will put out, but you can be sure Marco Silva will be looking to get the three points, so it could be an open game.
The odds for over 2.5 goals in Tottenham vs Everton – 4/5.
