After nine incredible months of drama, another Premier League season is set to end this weekend as all 20 teams take to the field at once.
Those three o’clock matches should provide plenty of goals, and we’re hoping that these three games will bring down the curtain in style. If they do, we’ll be counting out over £46 profit from a small £10 stake.
Here are our selections.
Burnley v West Ham United
Goals haven’t always been a regular feature at Turf Moor this term but, with survival guaranteed, we expect to see a more free flowing game as Burnley take on West Ham on the final day.
Sean Dyche’s men have turned their home into a fortress this term, winning 10 times despite scoring more goals than just seven Premier League rivals. Nonetheless, they should increase that tally of 25 goals against the Hammers, who have leaked 32 on their travels.
The visitors have had a few injury problems but have still scored 26 away goals, seven more than they managed in their first year at the London Stadium. Slaven Bilic’s men should get on the scoresheet again, especially as Burnley will probably play with a little more freedom and expansion.
West Ham picked up a 1-0 reverse win, and will be looking for a far better performance than they put in against Liverpool. While we do expect them to score, the hosts are likely to join them.
BTTS Yes @ 3/4
Hull City v Tottenham Hotspur
The Tigers may have been relegated, but that should not detract from their fantastic home form under Marco Silva. After that shock loss to Sunderland, they’ll be determined to give their fans something to cheer in their final game of the season. Having said that, they shouldn’t expect to have things all their own way against the second best side in the country.
Hull have registered 27 home goals, including 18 in their last nine, which should give them reason for optimism in spite of Tottenham’s impressive defensive record. Meanwhile, the fact that the visitors have had less rest and time to prepare could play an important role in helping the hosts score too.
Nonetheless, it’s difficult to overlook Tottenham’s obvious quality, especially in the attacking third. From the full-backs to Harry Kane, Mauricio Pochettino’s men are capable of causing constant danger for the relegated Tigers. Frankly, that gulf of quality should show.
We’d fancy Spurs to get the win. Still, at 4/5, the BTTS selection is well worth a punt.
BTTS Yes @ 4/5
Swansea City v West Bromwich Albion
It will be a day of celebration at the Liberty Stadium as Paul Clement’s men are guaranteed to retain their Premier League status. However, we don’t think they’ll be the only ones with reason to celebrate, as the Baggies should be confident about finding the target also.
Swansea have scored 25 home goals this term while they’ve also picked up an incredible 10 points from the last possible 12. With Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente looking particularly inspired, they should score against an away side that has been pretty poor in recent weeks.
Despite recent troubles, Tony Pulis can be pleased with his side’s season and will be eager to inspire another win. Even if that doesn’t manifest, there’s no reason to think that his side shouldn’t score against a home team that has leaked 33 in 18 home games.
With very little on the line, both sides could try out a few new ideas too. Let’s just hope that leads to a game of goals in Wales.
