We’re down to the final couple weeks of the 2017-18 Premier League season, and there’s still a fascinating relegation race at the bottom of the table.
West Brom picked up all three points last weekend and are still barely alive to stay in the Premier League even though odds remain off the board. Huddersfield appeared to be safe just a few weeks ago at +600, but they’re now +110 to be demoted, just barely above a 50% chance to stay in the top division. Swansea (+275) have struggled lately, but they do have a favorable remaining schedule (Bournemouth, Southampton, Stoke City).
The most notable matchup toward the top of the table this weekend is Chelsea hosting Liverpool on Sunday (11:30 a.m. ET). Liverpool are rare underdogs (+240) in this one, but they won’t mind, as they have a big Champions League Final in three weeks.
I’ve examined the betting market for every match on this weekend’s slate and found three value plays (+20.18 units, 20% ROI this season) worth wagering:
- Manchester United at Brighton (Friday, 3 p.m. ET)
- Tottenham at West Brom (Saturday, 10 a.m. ET)
- Southampton at Everton (Saturday, 12:30 p.m. ET)
