Meanwhile, Arsenal face tough trip to Wolves while Manchester United host Manchester City in derby
There is midweek action in the FA Premier League over the coming days to bring the 35th round of action to a close. On Tuesday evening (23 April) Tottenham host Brighton looking for a convincing win while the following evening Wolves host Arsenal and Manchester United welcome fierce local rivals Manchester City to Old Trafford in what should be a fiercely contested derby match.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, let’s start with the clash between Tottenham and Brighton on Tuesday night in north London. Spurs’ form has slipped over the last few weeks with the club losing three of their last five league games, although they still sit third in the table – they are also priced at just 1.14 to finish the season in the top four.
Brighton, meanwhile, are struggling at the wrong end of the table. They are without a win in their last seven matches across all competitions and have not scored in their last six league outings – sitting just three points above the drop zone, the club is at 7.00 to be relegated this term.
It will therefore come as little surprise to see that it is 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 1.36, while Brighton are all the way out at 10.00 to record what would be a shock win on the road – a draw is priced in the middle at 5.25, according to Oddsshark.
This should be a more than comfortable evening’s work for the home side. A 3-0 victory for Spurs is priced at 9.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a USS$45 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing a combo bet of a Spurs win, coupled with a “No” to both teams scoring, at 2.05.
Wolves host Arsenal looking for another top six scalp
The following evening, Wolves host Arsenal looking to claim another three points off one of the Big Six. Wolves’ form has stuttered somewhat over the last few weeks with the club winning just one of their last five league outings and dropping down to 10th in the table.
Arsenal, by way of comparison, also appear to be losing their best form at just the wrong time. The Gunners still sit fourth in the table and are priced at 1.90 to be there come the end of the season.
And while the betting is tight, it is Arsenal who come in as the slight favourites to claim three hugely valuable points. You can more than double your money by backing the Gunners to win at 2.50 while Wolves, despite home advantage, are out at 3.00 to do the same – a draw would appear to be the least likely outcome and is priced accordingly at 3.40.
But we are expecting home advantage to be a decisive factor in this fixture. A narrow, 2-1 win for Wolves is priced competitively at 12.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while a combo bet of a Wolves win, coupled with both teams to score, comes in at 5.50.
United and City lock horns in Manchester derby
And finally, Manchester United host Manchester City in the fierce local derby. United are looking to bounce back from a 4-0 thrashing at Everton this weekend, and the Red Devils sit sixth in the standings – they are now out at 6.00 to finish the season in the top four.
City, in stark contrast, have won their last 10 league games in a row and sit two points off the top of the table with a game in hand. They are priced at just 1.57 to retain their domestic crown.
And it is indeed City who come into this match as the clear favourites to take the points. You can back the champions to claim local bragging rights at just 1.44, while United are out at 7.50 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 5.00.
And we feel that this one may well end up honours even. A 1-1 draw is priced at 10.00, while you can more than double your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at 2.50.
