Meanwhile, Chelsea look to hang on to top four spot against Watford, while champions Manchester City host Leicester
The penultimate round of action takes place in the Premier League this coming weekend and there is still plenty to be decided. On Saturday (4 May) Liverpool can go back to the top of the table – temporarily, at least – with a win away at Newcastle, while the following day Chelsea look to hang on to their top four spot against Watford. And on Monday evening, defending champions Manchester City host Leicester.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, let’s start with the clash between Newcastle and Liverpool on Saturday evening. Newcastle have taken seven points from the last nine available and are now free from the threat of relegation after a difficult season in the top flight.
Liverpool, by way of comparison, have won their last seven league games in a row and sit just a point off Manchester City at the top of the pile. The Reds are at 4.50 to win their first ever Premier League title.
And it is indeed Liverpool who come into this match as the red hot favourites to take all three points. You can back the visitors to win at just 1.33 while Newcastle, despite home advantage, are out at 9.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 5.25, according to Oddsshark.
This should be a comfortable evening’s work for the away side. A 3-0 victory for Liverpool is priced at 9.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$47.50 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing a combo bet of a Liverpool win, coupled with a “No” to both teams scoring, at 2.05.
Chelsea host Watford needing all three points
The following day, Chelsea welcome Watford to Stamford Bridge looking for another three points to hang on to their place in the top four. But the Blues are without a win in their last three league outings, taking just two points from the last nine available, and sit fourth, two points ahead of Arsenal in fifth – they are priced at just 1.36 to stay there until the end of the season.
Watford, meanwhile, are also struggling for form recently, having won just one of their last four league encounters. A win here could move them up a couple of places, depending on how other results go.
And it is Chelsea who come into this match as the clear favourites to take all three points. You can back the Blues to get back to winning ways at just 1.40, while Watford are out at 7.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.75.
We are expecting home advantage to be a decisive factor in this fixture. A comfortable, 3-1 win for Chelsea is priced competitively at 12.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while you can almost triple your money by backing a combo bet of a Chelsea win, coupled with both teams to score, at 2.87.
City to keep on winning
And finally, Monday Night Football comes from the Etihad Stadium, as defending champions Manchester City host Leicester. City have won their last 12 league matches in a row and sit a point clear with two games left to play – they are priced at just 1.20 to retain their domestic crown.
Leicester, meanwhile, have won three of their last five league contests, losing just the once, and have climbed up to eighth. They may just be able to give City a scare despite being away from home.
But it is of course Manchester City who come into this match as the overwhelming favourites to collect another three points. You can back the home side to win at just 1.12, while Leicester are all the way out at 17.00 to record what would be a shock victory on the road – a draw is priced in the middle at 8.50.
This should be comfortable for the home side. A 2-0 win for City is priced at 9.00, while you can more than triple your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at 3.50.
