Premier League final-day Betting Tips

Arsenal v Everton

Aaron Ramsey is fit for Arsenal despite limping off against Sunderland in midweek with a thigh strain. Defender Laurent Koscielny could again miss out because of a calf problem, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is sidelined by a hamstring injury. Everton manager Ronald Koeman has no new injury concerns ahead of the game. It remains to be seen whether the match will mark the last Everton appearance for Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley, whose futures at the club are in doubt.

Arsenal are unbeaten in 22 league and cup home fixtures against Everton (W18, D4). Everton's last away victory came at Highbury in January 1996, when Graham Stuart and Andrei Kanchelskis scored in a 2-1 win. The Toffees could complete the league double over Arsenal for the first time since 1985-86, having won 2-1 in the reverse fixture last December. Everton will finish seventh whatever happens and they will make a game of it, but the Gunners are on a good run and I think they will come out on top. However, even if Arsenal do win, I think it will be too little, too late as far as making the Champions League places goes. offers 1.40 winning odds in favour of Arsenal.

Burnley v West Ham United

Burnley could welcome back Michael Keane, who has missed their last two games because of a calf injury. Fellow centre-back Ben Mee is again set to miss out with a shin problem. West Ham are without centre-back Winston Reid, who has undergone surgery to treat a knee injury, so 18-year-old Declan Rice may deputise. Fellow defender Angelo Ogbonna, who returned to the match-day squad last weekend after three months out, is also available but lacks match fitness. The Hammers' lengthy injury list also includes Mark Noble, Cheikhou Kouyate, Andy Carroll, Michail Antonio, Pedro Obiang, Diafra Sakho and Arthur Masuaku.

West Ham have won their last four games against Burnley in all competitions while Burnley's only home win against the Hammers in the last 39 years came in a Premier League fixture in February 2010. Burnley's target this season was to stay up and they have done it. It is mission accomplished and they can build again, which is great. My take is,'s 1.60 GG odds appears the best way to spend your money this weekend.


Burnley 1-2 West Ham

Chelsea v Sunderland

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill and top scorer Diego Costa are among the players likely to be recalled after Antonio Conte made nine changes for Monday's win over Watford. John Terry could made his 717th appearance for the Blues in his last game at Stamford Bridge as a player. Relegated Sunderland could be without up to 11 injured players. Defender Lamine Kone and midfielder Didier Ndong are the latest fitness doubts because of dead legs.

Chelsea have won 20 of their last 24 Premier League games against Sunderland, although two of their three losses have come in the last six meetings. This fixture has produced 112 goals in 31 Premier League meetings, an average of 3.6 per game. Whatever team Antonio Conte picks for this game, I don't think Sunderland will be able to stop the Blues from finishing their title-winning campaign on a high. 1.35 odds for O/2.5 is on the offing for this fixture and I absolutely believe there will be at least three goals in this fixture.


Chelsea 3-0 Sunderland

Hull City v Tottenham

Hull will be without Evandro, Harry Maguire and Abel Hernandez due to injury. The trio join Will Keane, Lazar Markovic, Ryan Mason, David Meyler and Moses Odubajo on the sidelines. Tottenham await news on whether full-backs Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker will be fit to return. Christian Eriksen is likely to be recalled after being rested against Leicester on Thursday, while Filip Lesniak could be handed a start.

Hull won the first ever Premier League fixture between these sides in October 2008, but Tottenham have won six and drawn two of the subsequent eight league meetings. The Tigers have scored just five goals in their nine Premier League matches against Tottenham and never more than once in a match. Tottenham said goodbye to White Hart Lane with a deserved win over Manchester United and they will want to finish the season strongly despite missing out on the title. But I fancy Hull to get on the score sheet -GG. offers 1.63 odds for both sides to score.


Hull City 2-4 Tottenham

Leicester City v AFC Bournemouth

Leicester are again without defender Robert Huth, who is nursing a foot injury, but Andy King could return from a hamstring problem. Wes Morgan, Danny Drinkwater, Molla Wague and Nampalys Mendy remain out. Bournemouth could welcome back midfielders Dan Gosling and Andrew Surman after their respective calf and knee problems. They are definitely without the injured Benik Afobe, while Lewis Cook is away with England's under-20 side.

Leicester have failed to beat Bournemouth in three previous meetings in the Premier League and only scored one goal in those fixtures. They have met five times since 2013 - twice in the Championship, three in Premier League, having only played each other seven times previously. Bournemouth are already in the top 10 and, if they can become a little bit meaner defensively, then they can continue their progress next season. The dethroned Champions Leicester will go above them - and into the top half with a win that is why I'm banking on's 1.93 winning odds in favour of the Foxes.
