On the final day of the Premier League, victories look assured for the top four where a £10 accumulator on Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal pays an easy looking 3/1 at Betway.com.
City, just needing a point for the title, are massive odds on favourites at 1/7 at Paddy Power to see off West Ham (28/1 Betvictor). The draw is chalked up by bet365 at 8/1 but a home victory to nil looks the pick of the game at 10/11 with Skybet with victory by a margin of two an inviting 31/10 at Ladbrokes.
Sergio Aguero, bagged a brace when his team last faced West Ham and the Argentine front man is as short as 2/1 at William Hill to open the scoring again should he play as the two teams renew hostilities, with in form Edin Dzeko 11/4 to break the deadlock with the same team.
Liverpool, hoping for a miracle at the City of Manchester Stadium, are also emphatic favourites at 1/4 with bet365 to get the better of a Newcastle side that hasn’t enjoyed the best climax to the campaign and it’s 12/1 via Stan James for the beleaguered Magpies to stun the Kop by walking away with all three points.
Bet365 quote 9/2 for Liverpool to edge out the Tyneside outfit by one but it might be a more comfortable afternoon for the Reds, who are 8/13 in Paddy Power’s handicaps, when kicking off a goal in arrears. Bolder punters can back them at 8/5 with the same firm when starting two goals back and it’s 7/1 at Skybet for Rodgers’s troops to net three times without reply.
Any triumph ‘to nil’ for the hosts, who must fancy themselves for a clean sheet, comes in at an enticing 13/10 courtesy of Betway.com.
Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea end their season in South Wales and they would love to emulate the 4-1 triumph they carded when facing Cardiff (7/1 Betvictor) at Stamford Bridge. That scoreline however, is a hefty 20/1 (bet365) and more realistic is either a victory by one for the Blues at 3/1 via Skybet or a 2-1 win (8/1, Winner.com).
For punters simply wanting to include the visitors in an accumulator, Paddy Power offer 4/9 about an away victory with Betvictor chalking up 21/20 about the visitors holding the lead at the end of both halves.
At Carrow Road, Arsenal are hard to oppose as they take on all but related Norwich (3/1 Stan James) and bookies agree, hence Ladbrokes rate the Gunners at 19/20 with an away win despite conceding at least once 23/10 at Ladbrokes.
With Hull City (3/1 Skybet) likely to rest more players ahead of next weekend’s FA Cup Final, . Roberto Martinez’s Everton can also prevail on the road to cap an impressive first term in charge for the affable Spaniard; Stan James and Paddy Power mark 11/10 against them getting the better of things at the KC Stadium.
Elsewhere, Manchester United are 6/4 via Stan James to end a miserable season on a high note at Southampton (9/5 Betvictor), Betvictor and William Hill make Tottenham 11/20 to have too much for Aston Villa (11/2 bet365) and staying towards the bottom, Sunderland are even money at bet365 to see off Ladbrokes’ 3/1 shots Swansea.
