Manchester United v Tottenham
Are the bookies reading too much into the old ‘Spurs will be used to playing at Wembley’ shtick here? Yes Tottenham are playing well, but just how much has the Wembley factor been incorporated into their price? Let’s have it right, United have barely broken sweat in reaching the last four, winning all four of their matches to nil and scoring 10 goals in the process. Should they really be 5/1 to win this without conceding? Should they f**k.
Betting: Manchester United to win to nil at 5/1 (Sky Bet)
Chelsea v Southampton
It’s been a tough season for both of these protagonists and reaching the FA Cup final won’t suddenly make everything alright. But I guess it won’t harm either. The Blues are rightful jollies having won the FA Cup three times in the past decade but defensively they don’t inspire confidence. Chelsea have conceded in nine consecutive matches and it’s worth remembering that both teams have scored in 11 of the last 12 Wembley semi-finals.
Betting: Chelsea to win and both teams to score at 13/5 (Bet Stars)
West Brom v Liverpool
There’s nuff Premier League action this weekend too of course, and where better to start than The Hawthorns as the worst team in the top flight collide with the hottest striker around. Mo Salah hit 40 for the season recently and looks the shout at 100/30 to score first against the Baggies, whose relegation will be confirmed sooner rather than later.
Betting: Salah to score first at 100/30 (bet365)
Watford v Crystal Palace
The Eagles are five points above the drop zone with four to play, while Watford are winless since the beginning of March. A draw wouldn’t be the worst result in the world for either side and a 2-2 result can be punted at 14/1 with bet365.
Betting: 2-2 draw at 14/1 (bet365)
Arsenal v West Ham
The Arsenal have scored three times in each of their last three home games and can cruise past a West Ham side who have shipped 38 goals away from home this season. It’s been another tough season for Davie Moyes, who increasingly looks like someone just woke him up out of a dead sleep and told him his ketamine dealer got arrested.
Betting: Over 3.5 goals at 13/10 (Bet Victor)
Stoke City v Burnley
Burnley have been in rare form on the road, winning their last three, and they look a big price to take down a Stoke side who are winless in six at home. Indeed I’ve absolutely no f**king idea why the Clarets are bigger than 5/2 for the win here.
Betting: Burnley to win at 66/25 (Marathon Bet)
Manchester City v Swansea City
Pep Guardiola’s men have won 28 games out of 33 in the league this season, scoring 93 times. The suave Spaniard will privately want his side to hit a century of goals and points and if they manage it this City side can then be talked about as one of the greatest to grace the Premier League. Swansea are 33/1 shots to win at the Etihad. This means that if you put £1 on them to win on Sunday, you would definitely lose £1.
Betting: Leroy Sane to score first at 6/1 (Paddy Power)
