Each week, the team at bookmakers will provide the best tips on how to spend £20 on the Premier League. This week, we have picked out four bets that we think are worth considering from this weekend's action in the top flight.
This weekend is the last round of Premier League fixtures before the first international break of the year. For some teams fighting relegation at the bottom of the table, the break can't come soon enough, while others who are finding a bit of form will want to continue playing as they look to achieve their goals this season.
Arsenal are looking to bounce back from their Europa League exit on Thursday and their motivation ahead of their home game with Crystal Palace is simple. Win, and they go into the break eight points clear of Manchester City with just 10 matches left to play. The leading football betting sites now believe Mikel Arteta's side can go on and win their first league title since 2004, while City may already have turned their attention to winning the Champions League for the first time in their history.
At the bottom of the table, wins for Bournemouth, Leeds and Southampton will send them into the international break on a high and boost their chances of avoiding relegation to the Championship. How will the bottom three look after the latest round of action? Check out our selections below and if you have a free bet to use, why not try it on one of them.
Aston Villa are currently 11 points clear of the relegation zone and are currently safe in the eyes of many pundits following the Premier League closely. They have a eight point lead over Crystal Palace who are directly below the in the standings. Another couple of wins should be enough to secure their place in next season's competition.
Ollie Watkins is in the form of his life, scoring in six of his last seven games, including the opener in a 1-1 draw at West Ham last weekend. All six of Watkins' goals have been the first goal for Villa, and five have been the opening goal of the game. While Bournemouth beat Liverpool last weekend at home, they have lost seven of their last eight on the road. Another defeat this season will not improved their odds to be relegated.
Leeds travel to Wolves sitting 19th in the table, but a win will move then to within a point of their hosts who sit 13th in the table. When it comes to be cautious in the first half, few do it better than these two sides. Leeds lead the league in draws at half-time with 15 of their 26 games all square at the break, which is one more than Wolves.
Javi Gracia has a massive challenge on his hands to keep Leeds in the top flight and another cautious approach at Wolves is expected. Leeds have been level at half-time in each of their last five matches, but only managed to go on and win one of those games. When the two sides met on the opening day of the season in August, the sides were level at 1-1 before Rayan Ait Nouri's own goal gave Leeds a 2-1 win at Elland Road. Both sides could do with a win to avoid relegation to the Championship.
Graham Potter seems safe in his job as Chelsea manager after guiding the Blues to three successive wins. One of those was against Dortmund to book their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. While they still remain 19th in the Premier League, optimism is high that a good run between now and the end of the season, will put them in the mix for a place in Europe next season. A top-four finish looks to be beyond them, but a place in the top six could still be achieved.
The mood at Stamford Bridge has improved drastically in the last couple of weeks, and with the supporters slowly warming to Potter, they should be celebrating another win this weekend against struggling Everton. The Toffees away form is woeful, with no wins in their last 11 on the road in all competitions. We're expecting the home side to give Sean Dyche's side the blues in west London, by winning to nil, just as they did at the start of the season when Jorginho's penalty on the stroke of half-time secured a 1-0 win for Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea side.
The Premier League title is Arsenal's to lose. They have put their blip of picking up just one point from three league games, is well and truly behind them. Since then, they have won all five to remain in pole position for the title. With nearest rivals Manchester City playing in the FA Cup, the Gunners can extend their advantage at the top of the table to eight points.
Three of Mikel Arteta's side's last four league wins have been to nil, and they should secure all three points against Crystal Palace while keeping a clean sheet in the process. Things are not looking great for Palace, who sacked Patrick Vieira two days before their trip to the Emirates. Vieira paid the price for not winning any of Palace's last 11 in the league. They've lost their last four and failed to score in 381 minutes, and counting. They failed to have a shot on target before managing three in their 1-0 loss at Brighton in midweek. Arsenal to win to nil is a confident bet.
