Football: Five matches to consider for your weekend acca
Who makes it onto your line-up? The full-time whistle blows on the Premier League season this weekend with plenty still to be decided, plus games in the race for promotion and Serie A too.
With all of that in mind, we’ve hand-picked five matches worth considering when building that end-of-season betslip with us!
Arsenal v Watford (Sun, 16:00)
Who will be joining Norwich in the EFL Championship next season? Watford kick-off the weekend in the relegation zone, level on points with Aston Villa in their scrap for survival.
Arsenal are 10/11 favourites on Sunday to bag all three points against a Watford side who are winless in seven Premier League games. The Hornets are 11/4 to win with a draw 27/10 odds.
Watford have failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last nine matches, Arsenal to win to nil is 27/10 with top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 13/5 to score first and edge Hayden Mullins’ men closer to the drop.
Leicester City v Manchester United (Sun,16:00)
There’s a top four spot up for grabs at the King Power! The Foxes have made hard work of Champions League qualification with their inconsistent form post-lockdown.
Brendan Rodgers’ side need a win to guarantee qualification and they are 21/10 underdogs against United (6/5) who need s a draw or better to cement their top four finish.
We can expect an open game with both teams going hammer and tongs for all three points. Both teams to score is 8/13 with over 2.5 goals 4/5 odds.
Premier League top scorer Jamie Vardy is 5/4 to score anytime with United’s Anthony Martial 5/1 to score first.
Manchester City v Norwich (Sun, 16:00)
It’s difficult to look past Manchester City for this one. Pep Guardiola’s side have been relentless at the Etihad. They host a relegated Norwich (28/1), who have scored a measly seven goals away from home all season.
City have won three of their last four games at home to the Canneries, scoring sixteen goals along the way. There is no surprise the hosts are 1/14 to win with City also 8/13 to win both halves.
Raheem Sterling has been in fine form with five goals in his last three league games, including a brace at Watford last time out. Sterling to score two or more is 14/5 with Gabriel Jesus 7/10 to score anytime.
Swansea City v Brentford (Sun, 18:30)
Our attention turns to the first-leg of the Championship play-offs on Sunday evening with the Swans taking on the Bees in South Wales.
The Bees (Evens) limped to the end of the season with back-to-back defeats to Stoke City and Barnsley, whereas Swansea (14/5) have only lost one of their last six matches.
Play-off semi-finals are often tight and tense affairs settled by the odd goal. Under 1.5 goals at the Liberty Stadium is 19/10 and a draw is priced at 9/4.
Juventus v Sampdoria (Sun, 20:45)
Will it be nine in a row for Juventus? Our final acca suggestion takes us to Serie A as Juventus look to wrap up their ninth successive Scudetto with victory against Sampdoria.
The Old Lady are clear 2/7 favourites to win in Turin despite one win in their last five outings.
Sampdoria (10/1) have lost ten of their seventeen away fixtures this season and take on a Juve side that have the best home record in Serie A – 15 wins from 17 matches.
We expect Juventus to end the season on a high – Juve win and both teams to score is 17/10.
