Meanwhile, Tottenham welcome Huddersfield to their new home while Arsenal travel to Watford
There are no prizes for guessing the biggest game in the 34th round of the FA Premier League as Liverpool welcome Chelsea to Anfield this coming Sunday afternoon (14 April). The previous day sees Tottenham host already relegated Huddersfield, while on Monday evening Arsenal head to Watford in the race for a place in the top four, which is just as tight as the battle for the title.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, let’s start with the clash between Tottenham and Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon. Spurs have won their last two matches across all competitions and sit fourth in the table, a point ahead of Arsenal – they are priced at 1.40 to finish in the top four this term.
Huddersfield, in stark contrast, have already been relegated and have lost their last 10 league matches in a row. Right now they are just trying to get through the season but it is difficult seeing them take something from this clash.
And it is of little surprise to see that it is indeed Tottenham who come into this match as the overwhelming favourites to take all three points. You can back the home side to win at just 1.20, while Huddersfield are all the way out at 11.00 to record what would be a shock win on the road – a draw is priced in the middle at 7.00, according to Oddsshark.
This should be a comfortable afternoon’s work for Spurs. A 3-0 win for the home side is priced at 8.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$40 pay out, while Son Heung-Min is at 2.37 to get on the score sheet.
Liverpool host Chelsea in huge clash
On the Sunday afternoon, Liverpool host Chelsea looking to make sure they are still on top come the end of the weekend. The Reds have won their last six matches in a row across all competitions and are priced at 2.50 to win their first ever Premier League title.
Chelsea, by way of comparison, have won their last three league outings and sit third in the table. The Blues are priced at just 1.83 to ensure a top four finish this term and it looks to be well within their grasp.
But 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 1.61, while Chelsea are out at 5.50 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.00.
And we are expecting Liverpool to record a comfortable victory here. A 2-0 win for the Reds is priced at 9.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$45 pay out, while you can double your money by backing a “No” to both teams scoring at 2.00.
Arsenal must beat Watford in race for top four
And finally, Monday Night Football this week sees Watford host Arsenal with the Gunners eyeing the top four. Watford have won their last two matches across all competitions and sit 10th, although a win here could lift them up to seventh, depending on how other results go.
Arsenal meanwhile lost at Everton last time out and as a result slipped out of the top four. The Gunners are at 1.90 to secure a top four finish this term but they need all three points here.
And while the betting is tight it is Arsenal who come in as the slight favourites to collect three valuable points. You can more than double your money by backing the Gunners to win at 2.20 while Watford, despite home advantage, are out at 3.10 to do the same – a draw would appear to be the least likely outcome and is priced accordingly at 3.50.
But we are expecting home advantage to play a decisive factor in this fixture. A narrow, 2-1 win for Watford is priced competitively at 13.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while a combo bet of a Watford win, coupled with both teams to score, is at 5.50.
