Meanwhile, Tottenham look to get back on track against Crystal Palace while Manchester United face tough trip to Wolves
There is some midweek action in the FA Premier League this week as several sides play their games in hand. On Wednesday night (3 April) Manchester City could go back to the summit with a win over Cardiff City, and Tottenham will be looking to get back to winning ways when they host Crystal Palace. The night before, Manchester United will be looking to make fourth place their own when they visit Wolves.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, let’s start with the clash between Manchester City and Cardiff on Wednesday night. City have won their last 12 matches in a row across all competitions and will go back to the top of the table if they win here – they are priced at just 1.44 to retain their league crown.
Cardiff, in stark contrast, have lost four of their last five league outings and look to be in real danger of going down. They are five points from safety and are priced at just 1.16 to fall through the tap door come the end of the season.
It is therefore of no surprise to see that it is Manchester City who come into this match as the overwhelming favourites to take all three points. You can back the champions to win at just 1.083, while Cardiff are all the way out at 21.00 to record what would be a shock victory on the road – a draw is priced in the middle at 11.00, according to Oddsshark.
This could well end up being a rout. A 4-0 win for City is priced at 8.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$40 pay out, while City come in at 3.50 to be ahead within the first 10 minutes.
Spurs need all three points against Palace
On the same evening, Tottenham host Crystal Palace in desperate need of a victory if they are to stay in the top four. Spurs have lost four of their last five league games, taking just a single point in the process, and are at 1.61 to finish in the top four this season.
Palace, meanwhile, have won two of their last three league matches and look to be clear of any relegation danger. As such, they can approach this match with the handbrake off as they go in search of more points.
Nevertheless, it is Tottenham who come into this match as the clear favourites to take all three points. You can back Spurs to win at just 1.44, while Palace are out at 7.50 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.20.
And we are expecting home advantage to play a decisive factor in this fixture. A narrow, 2-1 win for Spurs comes in at 8.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$42.50 pay out, while you can triple your money by backing a combo bet of a Spurs win, coupled with both teams to score, at 3.00.
United face tough test at Wolves
And finally, Wolves host Manchester United in what should be a tough test for the Red Devils. Wolves sit seventh in the table but have not won in their last two league matches.
United, by way of comparison, got back to winning ways after back to back defeats in the league and cup, including a 2-1 loss to Wolves in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. United, currently fourth, are at 2.20 to finish in the top four this term.
And while the betting is tight in this one, it is still United who come in as the favourites to take the points. You can double your money by backing the visitors to win at 2.00, while Wolves, despite home advantage, are out at 4.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.60.
And we believe that this one could well end up honours even. A 1-1 draw is priced at 7.00, while you can more than quadruple your money by backing a scoring draw at 4.75.
