Our consultant Jones Knows thinks Leeds can start their march to survival, Norwich can win against Wolves and Man City’s game at West Ham will drive the target crazy.
Tottenham vs Burnley, Sunday 12 noon
Tottenham may have fanned their top four hopes on Thursday but it’s been a tough game for them. Burnley owns a flurry of defense that makes the house edge of Sky Bet up to 1/3 very easy to confront. I also don’t feel comfortable backing Spurs after a tight spin, having suffered unexpected defeats against Middlesbrough, Southampton and indeed Burnley with four or less prep days. I’m happy to draw.
Dwight McNeil remains an interesting player in the goalscoring market for Burnley.
He is shouldering the battle for the club, performing brilliantly on the right as he crosses in with his preferred left foot.
The 22-year-old has fallen into form under Sean Dyche after struggling with his form but is returning to his best form and he is just three games away from breaking his scoring record in the season.
He has the quality to search the net. McNeil has taken more shots (47) and more shots on target (14) without scoring than any other Premier League player this season. That’s a wild statistic for a player of his caliber. The 9/1 with Sky Bet was well worth it for him to score.

Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace, 2pm Sunday – PLAY SUPER 6 HERE!
The end of the season matches that are not remarkable online always make punters who like to play the goals market itch.
Just a quick look at the underlying data tells the story that the average number of goals per game increased in May. Over the past five years, Premier League matches have averaged around 2.75 goals per game. In May, the average rose to 3.05 as teams played more freely with the release of pressure. That 3.1 average has held up so far in May of this season, so games like this will see the cop out of goal for the punters.
And I’m happy to be on the field both teams to score goals to increase the price.
RESULTS: 2-2 | BETS: Both teams scored and over 2.5 goals (6/5 with Sky Bet – Bet Here!)
Leeds vs Brighton, 2pm Sunday – PLAY SUPER 6 HERE!
This could be a daunting task on paper for Leeds against the Brighton side who have beaten Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Wolves in their last six matches. However, with so much going on for Leeds and nothing for Brighton, a home win should be backed up at 6/4 with the Sky Bet.
Graham Potter continued to perform well with limited resources in Brighton but his teams were unreliable when playing with defensive teams playing to hold the opposition back. His teams had problems playing with deep and solid defences – something Jesse Marsch simply had to do in this encounter.
For example, in the games facing Sean Dyche, Roy Hodgson, Nuno Espirito Santo, Bruno Lage, David Moyes, Sam Allardyce and Steven Gerrard – all managers focused on organization and defensive structure – the lake Potter’s profile says P29 W4 D15 L10.
Leeds simply had to win. And the followers of Elland Road can help them fight relegation until the last day.
FINDING RESULTS: 1-0 | BETS: Leeds win and under 2.5 goals (5/1 with Sky Bet – Bet Here!)
Watford vs Leicester, 2pm Sunday – PLAY SUPER 6 HERE!
In an average campaign for Leicester, James Maddison shined brightly and showed why next season should be built on his free play skills. His goal against Norwich in Wednesday’s 3-0 win was his 15th goal in all competitions and his eighth in the Premier League in his last 19 appearances.
Jamie Vardy’s power in front of goal remains strong, especially against the weaker sides in the league but the first-scorer market is too skewed in his direction with him only 7/2 with Sky Bet shoot first. Maddison has proven him to be Leicester’s deadliest offensive weapon this year so on 13 February his first goal seemed a bit generous against a Watford team that will try to contain him.
FINDINGS: 0-2 | BETS: James Maddison Scores First Goal (February 13 with Sky Bet – Bet Here!)
West Ham vs Manchester City, 2pm Sunday, live on Sky Sports – PLAY SUPER 6 HERE!
This Manchester City team is probably the greatest team in the Premier League right now, isn’t it?
What they are doing with the top teams at the moment is scary. Pep Guardiola’s side have become the first team in English top-flight history to win five consecutive games by at least three goals, achieving that feat amid the pressure of a title race. . It resulted in them winning their last five Premier League matches by a total of 22-1. Expect the same level of poetic assault to be seen later this week when they all boil down to the title alone.
City will be questioned by this West Ham attack although in the game it should be a ‘you attack, we attack’ type.
Guardiola’s side are moving towards the Premier League title despite an injury crisis in all four. Ruben Dias is absent, Aymeric Laporte is almost certainly sidelined and Fernandinho is a doubt. And the way Chiquinho let Oleksandr Zinchenko – a good player, but not a natural defender – come on in the midweek win over Wolves certainly heralded the possibility of Jarrod Bowen having a big say in the game. this.
I fully expected West Ham to score but the 4/7 odds with Sky Bet for that to happen have left me hunting elsewhere and Bowen’s scorer price is as high as 7/2. He is West Ham’s top scorer this season with 16 goals (10 in the Premier League), scoring seven in his last 13 Premier League games since January 12 as his shares continue to rise.
FINDINGS: 1-3 | BETS: Jarrod Bowen scores (7/2 with Sky Bet – Bet Here!)
JONES KNOW THE BEST BET: Bowen to score, has two shots and Zinchenko is beaten (50/1 with Sky Bet – Bet Here!)
Wolves vs Norwich, 2pm Sunday – PLAY SUPER 6 HERE!
I won’t go anywhere near Wolves at 2/5 with Sky Bet as they ended miserably to a campaign that threatens to be one of the memorable in February. Bruno Lage’s side have lost five of their last eight Premier League matches at Molineux, including defeats to Leeds, Brighton and Crystal Palace. Not to mention the 1-0 comeback against Norwich in the FA Cup in February.
The fact that Brighton and Manchester City easily faltered through the third round would be a good omen for even a team like Norwich in search of a goal. It’s been seven games without a clean sheet for Lage’s side, whose spell of hard to beat is a thing of the past, conceding 16 goals in that period – no team in the Premier League has conceded more. . An index is supported by expected targets against the second-worst target for that period (16.0).
Norwich, who play with effort but lack quality, deserve to accept 13/2 with Sky Bet for an away victory.
Such as the embarrassment following the loss to the Canaries, the two clubs decided to remove their manager soon after when Sean Dyche at Burnley and Rafael Benitez were shown the door. I wouldn’t rule out a hat-trick.
FINDINGS: 0-2 | BETS: Norwich win (February 13 with Sky Bet – Bet Here!)
Everton vs Brentford, Sunday 16:30, live on Sky Sports – PLAY SUPER 6 HERE!
Everton’s survival in the Premier League will be confirmed if they win here and Leeds do not win at home against Brighton. They will also be safe from the mathematical miracle of a draw if Leeds lose.
Frank Lampard’s approach of closing the back door and playing no-nonsense football is working. In the last six Premier League matches, Everton have conceded only four goals – an impressive feat when facing Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United directly.
Although a win is likely enough to ensure their survival, I cannot see Lampard altering this risk-free style of football. Five of the last six have fallen below the 2.5-goal mark and four out of five with Sky Bet for that again seems like a solid bet.
However, I would be looking for a bigger price and like the look and feel of the exact 0-0 in the first half at 15/8 with Sky Bet. In their last 11 matches combined only 9 goals have been scored in the first half of the match with 7 of those being goalless matches.
RESULTS: 0-0 | BETS: The exact first half score is 0-0 (15/8 with Sky Bet – Bet Here!)
Newcastle vs Arsenal, 8pm Monday, live on Sky Sports
The temptation is high to beat Newcastle 16/5 with Sky Bet as Arsenal will have to show some serious mentality to get through Thursday but Toon’s lack of motivation and achievement under Eddie Howe against the top five teams was heart-warming. my enthusiasm.
Howe has faced all five of the top teams since taking over and lost all seven games by a combined score of 21-2. He has improved Newcastle but they have overestimated what their performance indicators have come up with. I will play it safe and get a draw.
My eyes were drawn to Dan Burn for a potential betting angle.
If you go up against Manchester City and Liverpool – two teams that create few set-piece opportunities for their opponents – Burn has had at least one shot in 10 of his 12 appearances for Newcastle. Howe is not afraid to take the direct free kick and Burn has always been the one tasked with attacking from the first encounter. That led to his delicious chances in the box, which equated to the expected 0.91 goals. That marks him as one of the most dangerous defenders in the opposition box.
10/11 with Sky Bet getting him a shot was one of the weekend’s best bets.
