Where should I be investing my money?

First up, the clash between Liverpool and Bournemouth at Anfield. The Reds have only managed draws in their last two league outings and as a result have dropped down into second place on goal difference – they are now out at 2.37 to win their first ever Premier League title.

Bournemouth, by way of comparison, sit solidly in mid-table, in little danger of going down but with equally little hope of making inroads on the top four. The side have however lost their last seven league games in a row and can hardly head to Anfield brimming with confidence.

And it is indeed Liverpool who come into this match as the red-hot favourites to take all three points. You can back the home side to get back to winning ways at just 1.20, while Bournemouth are all the way out at 12.00 to record what would be a shock victory – a draw is priced in the middle at 7.00, according to Oddsshark.

And we are fully expecting Liverpool to stroll to victory here. A comprehensive, 3-0 win for the Reds comes in at 8.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$40 pay out, with Sadio Mane at 2.05 to get his name on the score sheet.

City can regain top spot with win over Chelsea

The following day, defending champions Manchester City could once again take top spot if they beat Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium. The Cityzens have won their last two league outings and are now the favourites to retain their title, being priced at just 1.72 to do so.

Chelsea, in stark contrast, have slipped out of the title reckoning and have lost two of their last three league outings, dropping down to fourth in the process, just two points ahead of Manchester United in fifth. The Blues remain at just 1.72 to ensure a top four finish come the end of the season.

And it is City who come into this match as the clear favourites to continue their recent winning streak. You can back the champions to make it three victories in a row at just 1.45, while Chelsea are out at 6.50 to take the points – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.50.

This should be a comfortable afternoon for the home side. A 3-1 win for City 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 City win, coupled with both teams to score, at 2.87.

Newcastle need points to steer clear of relegation danger

And finally, Monday Night Football this week sees Wolves host Newcastle, with the visitors looking for three points to ease their relegation fears. Wolves sit seventh in the table and have won their last three league games in a row.

Newcastle, meanwhile, hover just two points above the relegation zone and are in desperate need of points. However, the Magpies are out at 9.00 to drop down into the EFL Championship.

And regarding this match, it is Wolves who come in as the clear favourites to win again. You can back the home side to make it four wins on the bounce at just 1.75, while Newcastle are out at 4.75 to collect three valuable points – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.60.

And we are expecting home advantage to be a deciding factor here. A narrow, 2-1 win for Wolves 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 over 2.5 goals in the game at 2.20.
