Leeds United vs Tottenham Hotspur: Harry Kane to score anytime (21/20)
Due to poor team results, Harry Kane’s individual excellence this season has gone a little under the radar.
The England international scored 28 goals before last weekend. A brace at Elland Road would see Kane equal his tally from 2017/18, his most prolific campaign to date.
That Tottenham team of five years ago was far superior to today’s, so Kane’s achievements are hugely impressive.
Chances are Sunday’s game at Elland Road will be the forward’s last appearance for his boyhood club.
The game matters more to Leeds, who must win to have any chance of survival. But Kane will be desperate to make his mark in case this is indeed the last time he dons a Spurs shirt.
Leeds have conceded the most goals in the Premier League this season, so there should be plenty of opportunities for the Tottenham talisman.
Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal: Over 2.5 goals (4/7)
Arsenal must avoid defeat at the City Ground to keep their Premier League title hopes alive, but in truth the race is already over.
Manchester City only need to win one of their last three games to claim the prize, with Arsenal now close to finishing second.
Mikel Arteta’s men looked physically and mentally exhausted last weekend when they suffered a 3-0 home defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion.
They may struggle to prepare for this encounter now that the championship is out of reach.
Nottingham Forest have everything to gain in their battle against the drop. Three more points would probably be enough for them to survive.
Forest’s last five games have contained 23 goals, while Arsenal’s defense has struggled lately. It should be an entertaining affair.
Leicester City vs West Ham United: Leicester winner (19/20)
Leicester are still fighting for their life in the Premier League.
A fierce performance at St James’ Park on Monday night resulted in a 0-0 draw with Newcastle United which could still be decisive.
The task for Leicester is simple: they must beat West Ham and hope for a Bournemouth favor against Everton.
If the Foxes triumph and the Toffees slip, Leicester will retain their top-flight status against all odds.
West Ham are ideal opponents. David Moyes will likely rest a number of key players ahead of the Europa Conference League final.
Even if the Scot chooses his strongest team, West Ham’s minds will surely be elsewhere given that they have nothing left to play domestically.
Leicester have won just one of their seven games under Dean Smith but we believe they will get the job done on Sunday. Whether that will be enough to keep it standing remains to be seen.
Add the next two bets to make it a quintuple acca.
Everton vs Bournemouth: Everton winner (4/9)
Everton are the favorites to avoid relegation. They are the only bottom side to have their fate in their hands. Beat Bournemouth and the job is done.
However, things are not always so simple at Goodison Park. If Leicester were to take an early lead against West Ham, it’s easy to imagine anxiety setting in on Merseyside.
Everton’s record in front of their own fans is not as good as one might expect. They sit 18th in the home table but 15th in the away equivalent.
Still, there aren’t many friendlier fixtures than Bournemouth at home to wrap up the campaign.
It’s no affront to the Cherries, but the fact that they have nothing to do with this game means they could struggle to match Everton’s intensity.
Crystal Palace vs Nottingham Forest: Over 2.5 goals (4/6)
The pressure is off for Nottingham Forest, who secured their survival with a 1-0 loss to Arsenal last weekend.
Fans visiting Selhurst Park will be in party mode, which has nothing to do with the general mood.
Crystal Palace will also be able to play with freedom due to their mid-table position.
Given the larger context, goals could be on the cards in this one. Neither team has much of an incentive to keep things tight and avoid risks, which should encourage attacking football.
So the lens market is worth exploring – and we reckon there will be three or more.
