Arsenal FC vs. Leeds United FC

Sunday, May 08, 2022 – 09:00 AM EDT at Emirates Stadium

Arsenal vs. Leeds United Trends

  • Arsenal has won 3 consecutive EPL games.
  • Arsenal is unbeaten in 13 of their last 16 EPL home games.
  • Arsenal has scored 2+ goals in their previous 3 EPL games.
  • Leeds is unbeaten in 5 of their last 6 EPL matches.

Teams' Current Form

In their continued push to finish inside the top-four of the EPL table and claim a position in next year's Champions League tournament, the Gunners welcome a relegation-threatened side in Leeds United to the Emirates on Sunday afternoon, and Mikel Arteta will be confident his young squad can achieve another three points.

Arsenal recently extended Arteta's contract to 2025 as he's delivered a promising season for the north London club. Despite their top-four placement coming down to the final matchdays, the second half of the 2021/22 season has been a positive run as they sit two points clear in 4th place with four games remaining.

Leeds United has unquestionably perked up since Jesse Marsch took the reins. Still, a visit from the league leaders last weekend put a dampener on his unbeaten run as Pep Guardiola and company ran riot at Elland Road.

The Whites are holding onto safety in 17th position sitting two points clear of Everton, but when faced with a top-six team, we've witnessed Leeds lose all 10 of those meetings this term. To make matters worse, this week's visitors have allowed 27 goals during their seven away games to teams inside the top eight.

Premier League Betting Odds

The Premier League odds favor the home side, and with the absence of Stuart Dallas from the Leeds squad, their chance of victory has dropped even lower.

With the opportunity to move five points clear of their London rivals Tottenham, it's hard to envision the home side faltering versus the worst defensive record in the Premier League. And to boost the undesirable moneyline odds placed on Arsenal, I'd take my chances with the handicap option as I believe the Gunners can win by a 2-goal margin against such a lackluster backline.

Score Prediction: Arsenal 2 - Leeds 0

Manchester City FC vs. Newcastle United FC

Sunday, May 08, 2022 - 11:30 AM EDT at Etihad Stadium

Manchester City vs. Newcastle United Trends

  • Manchester City is unbeaten in 30 of their last 35 EPL home games.
  • Manchester City has won 3 consecutive EPL games by 3 goals or more.
  • Manchester City has scored in 12 successive EPL home fixtures.
  • Newcastle has won 4 of their previous 6 games in all competitions.

Teams' Current Form

Heartbreak could linger at the Etihad during Manchester City's meeting with Newcastle on Sunday. Still, Pep Guardiola and his squad have no time to dwell on their midweek Champions League exit at the hands of Real Madrid because the Premier League title is the club's only hope of capturing silverware this term.

With a minute margin for error in the final four games of the EPL season, City is just one point clear of Liverpool, and anything less than victory could jeopardize their first-place positioning and give Jurgen Klopp's men the advantage heading into the final weeks of the 2021/22 schedule.

No team other than Liverpool, who defeated them 1-0 last week, is having a more successful 2022 than Newcastle United. After fighting relegation towards the end of 2021, the Magpies and their newly instated manager Eddie Howe own the second-highest points tally and a place in the division's top ten.

The bad news for Howe and his squad is that they've been forced to meet with the top-two teams of the division in consecutive weeks. However, losing by just a single goal to Liverpool could provide a glimmer of hope versus a worn down and depressed City squad.

Premier League Betting Odds

The best sportsbooks naturally favor Manchester City, and with the home advantage, they won't provide a simple 90 minutes for their visitors.

In December, the reverse fixture at St. James Park saw the Citizens run rampant with a 4-0 victory, but this Newcastle team has improved leaps and bounds since that date. With that said, it's challenging to deny another three points for Manchester City, who could transition their Champions League disappointment into a domestic masterclass for the home fans.

The moneyline odds on the home side aren't worth a look, but the expectations that Newcastle can bag a consolation goal, City to win, and both teams scoring will give us a comfortable price tag.

Score Prediction: Man City 3 - Newcastle 1

Soccer Pick: Man City Win and BTTS (+155) [2.55] [1u wager returns 1.55u of profit] at Everygame
