Premier League Round 38 Preview: City Can Retain Title With Win At Brighton

Meanwhile, Liverpool must beat Wolves to have chance of taking crown, while Tottenham host Everton

The final round of matches in the FA Premier League is here and the title race has gone right down to the wire. This coming Sunday afternoon (12 May), Manchester City can make sure of the title if they win away at Brighton, while challengers Liverpool are at home to Wolves. Tottenham will be looking to break into the top three when they host Everton.

Where should I be investing my money?

First up, let’s start with the clash between Brighton and Manchester City on the south coast. Brighton and have managed to stay up despite a run of 10 games without a win across all competitions, and are unlikely to cause the defending champions too many problems on Sunday afternoon.

City, in stark contrast, have won their last 13 league matches in a row and sit a point clear at the top of the table with just one match left to play. They are now priced at just 1.10 to retain their domestic crown.

And it is of little surprise to see that it is indeed Manchester City who come into this match as the overwhelming favourites to take all three points. You can back the league leaders to win at just 1.12 while Brighton, despite home advantage, are all the way out at 15.00 to record what would be a shock win – a draw is priced in the middle at 9.00, according to Oddsshark.

This should be a comfortable win for the visitors. A 3-0 victory in City’s favour comes in at 8.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$42.50 pay out, while you can almost quadruple your money by backing City to be ahead inside 10 minutes at 3.75.

Liverpool need victory to stay in contention

Meanwhile, Liverpool welcome Wolves to Anfield knowing they need a win if they are to have any chance of taking the league title. The Reds have won their last eight league matches in a row but are now out at 7.00 to pick up their first ever Premier League title.

And Wolves come into this match on the back of some excellent form, having won their last three league encounters on the bounce. The side, who were only promoted last summer, are more than capable of hurting the big boys and eliminated Liverpool from the FA Cup earlier this season.

Nevertheless, it is Liverpool who come into this match as the red-hot favourites to take the points. You can back the home side to win at just 1.33, while Wolves are out at 7.50 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 5.50.

And with nerves likely to be high, we are expecting Liverpool to just about scrape a win. A narrow, 2-1 win for the Reds is priced at 9.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$47.50 pay out, while you can double your money by backing both teams to score at 2.00.

Tottenham can move into third with victory over Everton

And finally, Tottenham can end the domestic campaign on a high when they host Everton. Spurs have lost three of their last four games but are still priced at just 1.000 to finish in the top four thanks to their excellent goal difference, while a win could take them third, depending on Chelsea’s result.

Everton, by way of comparison, have won three of their last five matches, losing just the once. The Toffees have found their form towards the end of the season and will come to London looking for a positive result.

But it is Tottenham who come into this match as the clear favourites to end the season on a high. You can back the home side to win at just 1.90, while Everton are out at 3.60 to do the same – a draw would appear to be the least likely outcome and is priced accordingly at 3.75.

And we think that home advantage could well be a decisive factor in this fixture. A 1-0 victory for Spurs comes in at 9.00, while you can double your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at 2.00.
