We bring to an end Matchweek 29 with three big fixtures through Thursday and Friday mornings.
Arsenal and Liverpool will steal the headlines as the BetDeluxe team prepares the best bets.
Arsenal vs. Liverpool
march 17th 7:15am
Liverpool travels to the Emirates for what could be a seismic move in the title race when it gets set to face an in-form Arsenal.
The hunt for the Premier League trophy was blown wide open when Crystal Palace held league-leader Manchester City to a 0-0 draw on Tuesday and a win here for Liverpool will see it get within a point of Pep Guardiola’s men.
Jurgen Klopp has guided his men to a nine-game unbeaten run in the league with eight wins and a draw.
But the Gunners will likely to prove difficult opposition given their run of it in league of late.
Arsenal has gone six matches undefeated (W5, D1) and has charged into the top four by playing some stellar football.
Mikel Arteta will be eager to make amends for a 2-0 loss against Liverpool at the Emirates in the Carabao semifinals back in January.
This will be a true litmus for the Arsenal style of play and whether it can match it with one of the best in the league.
Ben White and Gabriel will need to keep Diogo Jota in check after he netted a brace in the Carabao Cup.
Get the feeling Arsenal is going to try lockdown and close up shop defensively, but that is easier said than done against Klopp’s Liverpool.
Predicting this to be a draw.
Prediction: Arsenal 1 Liverpool 1
Suggested Bet: Draw head to head at $3.80
brighton & hove albion vs. tottenham
march 17th 6:30am
Both Tottenham and Brighton & Hove Albion are out to avenge losses when they meet at Amex Stadium on Thursday morning.
Spurs were on the wrong of a 3-2 result against fellow top-four combatants Manchester United, while Brighton was brushed aside 2-0 by Liverpool.
With the pressure building on Antonio Conte to get consistent winning results, this match is simply a must-win contest for Spurs if they have any hope of making the top four.
For Brighton, Graham Potter has a selection headache with Adam Lallana going down with a hamstring complaint against Liverpool and they will also be missing Adam Webster.
There are the types of contests Tottenham have been able to batter teams in during the last few weeks.
You only have to scroll back a few fixtures to see what Spurs did to Leeds and Everton.
With Brighton having lose five matches in a row, Spurs will likely add to that form slump.
Prediction: Brighton & Hove Albion 1 Tottenham 4
Suggested Bet: Tottenham head to head at $2.20
everton vs. newcastle
march 18th 6:45am
The hot-to-trot Newcastle travels over to Goodison Park for a clash agains the free-falling Everton on Friday morning.
Eddie Howe has the Magpies playing inspired football at the moment and it will all but certainly keep Newcastle in the Premier League.
Howe almost pinched a draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, but had to settle for a 1-0 loss, the side’s first in 10 league outings.
As for Everton, it is going in the opposite direction and at real risk of relegation having lost four on the boucne under new coach Frank Lampard.
The Toffees have had a wretched time of this season and a 1-0 loss to Wolverhampton only compounded their problems.
There is just no way known anyone can tip Everton given the form it is in.
Without Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the squad, scoring goals has been hard to come by in the last few fixtures.
Howe’s tactical nous should be able to pick apart this Everton team.
Prediction: Everton 0 Newcastle 2
Suggested Bet: Newcastle head to head at $3
