Premier League betting tips: Man United to leapfrog top four rivals?
The top four battle is down to the wire as we turn into home straight of the longest Premier League campaign ever.
After Chelsea did their job on Tuesday night and dispatched Norwich City, it’s now up to both Leicester City and Man United to keep winning.
We delve into that plus much more ahead of tonight’s quartet of matches…
Everton v Aston Villa (Thurs 18:00)
Aston Villa’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace last time out has given them a glimmer of hope of escaping relegation. But lose tonight and the door closes even more with only two games to go.
Dean Smith’s men are 13/5 to get a vital three points against an Everton side who haven’t won in three matches.
Carlo Ancelotti has admitted his remit was to avoid relegation when he took over earlier this season, but Toffees fans will expect a lot more from their side next season. The hosts are 21/20 for victory, with the draw at 12/5.
In the goalscorer’s market, Richarlison is 7/2 to break the deadlock, while Trezeguet is 50/1 to repeat his two-goal salvo against Palace.
Leicester City v Sheffield United (Thurs 18:00)
After being so consistent across the whole campaign, Leicester have come unstuck recently. In an alternative universe, losses to Everton and Bournemouth would’ve seen them drop out of the top four places, but with three games remaining their destiny is still in their hands.
The Foxes will have to make do without Ben Chilwell and James Maddison tonight. But victory at 10/11 would put them one step closer to a return to the Champions League and dent Sheffield United’s European hopes too.
The Blades have been a revelation in their first return to the Premier League since 2007. The away side are 16/5 to win, while Both Teams to Score is 19/5.
Southampton v Brighton & Hove Albion (Thurs 20:15)
Two South Coast sides with innovative gaffers and an attractive playing style. It can’t end 0-0 can it?!
Southampton have rallied in the latter part of the campaign winning four of their seven games since the restart. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men are 6/5 to win on home turf tonight, with Danny Ings scoring in a Saints victory at 17/10.
Brighton’s Premier League future looked perilous at one stage, but Graham Potter now has them five points clear of relegation.
The Seagulls are 23/10 to win, with Leandro Trossard at 14/5 to score his third goal in four games.
Crystal Palace v Man United (Thurs 20:15)
Depending on the result at the King Power Stadium, Man United could be in the top four by 22:15 tonight with a win.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have been the form side since ‘Project Restart’ and are a short 3/10 to maintain their unbeaten run with victory
Anthony Martial is 13/2 to score 2 or more goals, with team-mate Mason Greenwood at 13/10 anytime.
