As we approach the final weeks of the 2017-18 Premier League season, a champion has already been declared in Manchester City, but there’s still jostling for Champions League and Europa League spots. This weekend’s most notable matchup between Arsenal and Manchester United at Old Trafford will be one to keep an eye on toward the top half of the table, but there are also seven clubs still battling it out to avoid three relegation spots on the other end of the spectrum.
Relegation Odds (via 5Dimes):
West Brom still aren’t officially relegated, but it would take a huge miracle to climb out of the bottom three, as they’d need to win their final three games and get some a ton of help. The clubs most likely to join them are Stoke City (-1100) and Southampton (-225), but good ole Swansea City (+365) are still in a little bit of trouble, especially with Chelsea as their opponent this weekend.
Draws continue to excel this season with nearly +20 units earned. Road teams are down 53 units, while home teams have essentially broken even.
I’ve examined the betting market for every match on this weekend’s slate and have found four value plays (+13.92 units, 13% ROI this season) in:
- Stoke City at Liverpool (Saturday, 7:30 a.m. ET on NBC Sports)
- Brighton at Burnley (Saturday, 10 a.m. ET on PLP)
- Everton at Huddersfield (Saturday, 10 a.m. ET on PLP)
- West Brom at Newcastle (Saturday, 10 a.m. ET on CNBC)
