As we near the end of the Premier League season we still have a lot on the line! No team has been confirmed for the drop as yet, we still don’t know who is going to win the title and Champions League and Europa League places are still up for grabs. We have five matches scheduled to go ahead on Saturday for which I have picked out an accumulator for the 3pm games and a 14/1 bet builder for the Liverpool vs Brentford game in the evening.

Liverpool vs Brentford betting preview
Liverpool will look to extend their five game winning streak this weekend when they host Thomas Frank’s Brentford. Three points is a must if The Reds are to stand any chance of Champions League football next season. Jurgen Klopp’s side were left with the faintest of hopes after Manchester United’s injury-time defeat to Brighton on Thursday. With four games of their season remaining they will have to hope that United capitulate in the run-in, with a four point advantage and a game in hand. Goal difference is very much in Liverpool’s favour but it is still a tall ask to even be talking about them in top-four context just yet. Still, Jurgen Klopp knows all his team can do is take it game by game and and hope that everything falls in place outside of their control. Anfield has remained a fortress for Liverpool this season and their home form has carried their campaign, with their disastrous away record the catalyst for a hugely disappointing season. The Bees have had another fantastic campaign and look to be in line for a top half finish. Thomas Frank guided his side to three points against Liverpool in the reverse fixture, but as mentioned plenty of teams have managed to dismantle the Merseyside outfit on their travels. Given what’s at stake in this match and it being a home game I fancy Liverpool to get over the line, but it won’t come without being tested. With a hugely impressive return of 20 goals from 32 games in the Premier League Ivan Toney looks like Brentford’s most likely source of a goal, and with Liverpool having conceded in five of their last six games I fancy both teams to score this weekend.
- Liverpool to win
- Ivan Toney to score
- Trent Alexander Arnold to have 1+ shots on target
14/1 with Paddy Power
- Liverpool have won their last five Premier League games.
- The last three meetings between the sides have produced at least three goals.
- Both teams have scored in five of Liverpool’s last six games.
- Liverpool have scored 18 goals in their last six Premier League games.
- The Reds have taken 26 points from their last 10 games at Anfield.
Liverpool will be without Calvin Ramsay, Stefan Bajcetic, Naby Keita, Roberto Firmino and Thiago Alcantara through injury. As for Brentford they will be without Keane Lewis-Potter, Pontus Janson, Christian Norgaard and Thomas Strakosha while there are still doubts over the fitness of Kristoffer Ajer.
3pm accumulator pays 17/2 with Paddy Power

- Over 2.5 in Tottenham vs Crystal Palace
Bournemouth vs Chelsea - Bournemouth to win 12/5
Frank Lampard’s dismal run of six games and six defeats since returning to the dugout makes me think that Bournemouth are a huge price this weekend. Given that The Cherries are at home and have won four of their last five games in the division, 12/5 looks like serious value. With 21 points taken from their last 11 games Gary O’Neill deserves enormous credit for guiding his side to safety, given their limited resources. As for the visitors, not only are results bad, there is a clear lack of passion and even quality in their game this season. Certain players look a shadow of their former selves and big money signings have failed to hit anything like the heights that will have been expected. I am not by any means saying that I strongly fancy a Bournemouth win on Saturday, but if I give them a 40-50% chance of winning, making 12/5 great value.
Wolves vs Aston Villa Under 2.5 match goals 6/10
We have another midlands derby to look forward to here and I can see this one being a low scoring affair. In Wolves’ last 10 games at The Molyneux, only eight have produced three or more goals. As for the visitors, only three of their last 10 away games have produced three or more goals. Given the 6-0 thumping that Wolves were on the receiving end of against Brighton last time out I expect them to be a lot more cautious in their approach this weekend. Villa have been in tremendous form with eight wins in their last 11 games. I can see The Villains taking at least a point here and Wolves trying to frustrate Unai Emery’s team throughout.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Crystal Palace - Over 2.5 match goals 8/11
Spurs go in search of their first win in four games as they host Roy Hodgon’s Crystal Palace. Roy has turned The Eagles fortunes around with 13 points taken from their last six games, seeing them secure their place in the Premier League next season. I will be steering away from a match result bet in this one but I do like the look of goals. Hodgson could be accused of being pragmatic in his approach in the past but all that seems to have gone out of the window since returning to the dugout at Selhurst Park. Having found the net on 13 occasions in his six games in charge there is a good chance that they will find the net again this weekend, with Spurs having conceded 15 goals in their last four games.
