Saturday, May 1st Matches
- Manchester City -1 ½ (-109) / Crystal Palace +1 ½ (-120)
Man City beat Chelsea 2-1 in a Champions League match on Wednesday. There’s a chance City doesn’t play with as much fervor against Crystal Palace as they normally would. Palace has lost 2 in a row. Also, the Sky Blues beat Crystal 4-0 in the last head-to-head. So even if Manchester City bounces with an average performance, they can still beat Crystal Palace by 2.
Soccer Pick: Manchester City
- Leeds +218 / Brighton & Hove +121
Brighton & Hove has 2 losses and 2 draws in their last 4. Leeds has drawn twice in their last 2. Before that, they had won 3 straight. One of the victories was 2-1 versus Man City. The 2 draws were against Manchester United and Liverpool. At +218, Leeds is an overlay.
Soccer Pick: Leeds
- Fulham +1 ½ (-185) / Chelsea -1 ½ (+187)
After drawing 1-1 with Real Madrid in the first-leg of a two-leg Champions League semifinal aggregate, the Blues are living large. Chelsea drew with RM on Real’s pitch. Fulham could keep this to a goal, but Chelsea is playing so well, and the odds on Fulham demand so much, that the Blues are the play.
Soccer Pick: Chelsea
- Aston Villa +260 / Everton -104
On April 23, Everton beat Arsenal 2-1. The home team had drawn in their 3 previous matches. Aston Villa drew against West Brom in their last. They had lost the 2 matches previous. Before writing off Aston, check out who they lost too, Liverpool and Manchester City. AV can pull off the upset.

Newcastle has 2 wins and 2 draws in their last 4. Arsenal has a draw and a loss in the last couple. The Gunners beat Newcastle 3-0 in the last head-to-head. So Arsenal should be favored in this. But the odds on Newcastle are too good to ignore. We’re backing the home squad.

It’s difficult to understand why Liverpool offers favorite’s odds. Man United has 4 wins and a draw in their last 5. Pool has drawn in 3 straight, including 1-1 versus Newcastle on April 24. Man U won the last head-to-head. Now, they get the Reds at Old Trafford.

Sheffield and Tottenham have each won a single match in their last 5. The Hotspur has drawn twice in their last 5 while Sheffield lost all 4 of their other matches. Tottenham beat Sheffield 3-1 in the last head-to-head. Hotspur handicap looks like a solid play.

Monday, May 3rd Match
