Top EPL Games to Bet and Watch this Week From April 30th to May 1st

Liverpool FC -1 ½ +116 vs Newcastle United +1 ½ -140

  • When: Saturday, April 30 at 7:30 am ET

Liverpool is playing like the best club team on the planet. After a tough first half where Villareal held the Reds to zero goals, Pool exploded with 2 goals to grab an aggregate lead over the La Liga squad.

But although Liverpool is playing great, the Reds face a tough team in Newcastle on Saturday. The home underdog has won 4 straight. Pool should win. Newcastle keeps the loss to a goal. 

Soccer Pick: Newcastle +1 ½  

Crystal Palace +200 vs Southampton FC +138

  • When: Saturday, April 30 at 10:00 am ET

In their last, Crystal Palace was unlucky to lose. Palace had lost 3 straight but versus Leeds United on April 25, Crystal outplayed their rivals. 

So the 0-0 draw is somewhat of a disappointment. Southampton heads into this after drawing 2-2 with Brighton. The home team can win for sure, but the odds aren’t fair. At +200, the road squad is the play. 

Soccer Pick: Crystal Palace +200  

Manchester City -1 ½ -119 vs Leeds United +1 ½ -102

  • When: Saturday, April 30 at 12:30 pm ET

Although Leeds drew with Crystal Palace in their last, the home squad in this is in excellent form. Leeds shows 2 draws and 3 wins in their last 5.

Man City has won 3 straight. The last victory happened in a Champions League Semifinal where the Sky Blues bested Real Madrid 4-3. The Citizens’ defense did not look good. Leeds shouldn’t win straight up, but they can keep this to a goal loss. 

Soccer Pick: Leeds United +1 ½  

Leicester City +520 vs Tottenham Hotspur -212

  • When: Sunday, May 1 at 9:00 am ET

Neither team is playing well. Tottenham had won 3 straight, but on April 16, Brighton beat the Hotspur 1-0, and then in their last on April 23, Brentford forced a 0-0 draw.

Leicester fell to Newcastle on April 17. The road team has drawn twice in their last couple of matches. That alone makes them playable. The fact the odds are at an overlay number really makes LC playable. 

Soccer Pick: Leicester City +520 

Chelsea FC -129 vs Everton FC +370

  • When: Sunday, May 1 at 9:00 am ET

This happens on Everton’s pitch. So the underdog has a shot. Also, the odds are terrific.

However, Chelsea wants to end the Premier League season on a high note. They won’t catch Liverpool or Man City, but the Blues want to maintain their third place spot. 

So Chelsea should dominate. The odds make the Blues an easy pick. 

Soccer Pick: Chelsea -1296 

Arsenal FC -125 vs West Ham United +330

  • When: Sunday, May 1 at 11:30 am ET

Fourth-place Arsenal has a slim 2-point lead over Tottenham. Arsenal wants a chance to battle in the Champions League next season. So the Gunners will be motivated.

West Ham United hosts Frankfurt in a Europa League Semifinal on Thursday. West Ham will be all out to win that match. Don’t expect the home team to be all out to beat Arsenal. The Gunners are the play. 

Soccer Pick: Arsenal -125
