We’re offering the best odds on the widest range of markets on all ten matches in Week 38 of the Premier League!

Stoke City vs Liverpool

Stoke City host Liverpool in their final league game for the season, and can deny the Reds a place in the Europa League if they win. The Potters have done enough to finish their campaign mid-table but have never really looked a side capable of competing with the league’s best. The Reds will farewell club legend Steven Gerrard after this match and will do everything in their power to see him off a winner. Peter Crouch played 85 matches for the Reds and is sure to cause Simon Mignolet headaches. Liverpool should win this match and assure their European position next season.

Leicester City vs Queens Park Rangers

Leicester City completed one of the most incredible fights for survival when drawing with the similarly-positioned Sunderland last weekend, and enter Saturday night’s match with the relegated QPR as one of the league’s formed teams. Nigel Pearson’s men have been a joy to watch over the last eight weeks and have not looked out of place against even the league’s best. QPR on the other hand have never looked like a team capable of competing well week in, week out in England’s top flight and were the first team assured to go back to the Championship. Ending their campaign in front of home fans, the Foxes are rightfully favourites and should have no issues posting another win.

Arsenal vs West Bromwich Albion

West Brom claimed undoubtedly their biggest win of the season when seeing off champions Chelsea 3-0 at the Hawthorns, but face an uphill battle in repeating the dose away to Arsenal this weekend. West Brom called of the services of survival expert Tony Pulis when they were locked in the bottom three earlier this campaign and have been rewarded for the move in climbing to thirteenth overall. Arsenal have played to a typically high standard for most of the season, assuring themselves a Champions League berth a likely third overall finish. Alexis Sanchez leads Arsenal’s impressive scoring record this season and will be looking to close his campaign in the best way possible.

Everton vs Tottenham Hotspur

While never really a serious chance of demotion, Everton have barely been a shadow of their 2013/14 selves this campaign and appear likely to finish dead-centre of the 20 team Premier League table. Spurs themselves have lacked something of their killer blow from seasons past but currently sit sixth on class and a competitive run of results recently. Having each posted wins in their most recent fixtures, both Everton and Tottenham will be confident ahead of this match at Goodison Park however the Toffees’ impressive form at home may be key in a low-scoring win.

Chelsea vs Sunderland

Chelsea secured their fifth Premier League title a fortnight ago, and had clearly taken the foot off the accelerator when sensationally losing 3-0 to West Brom last weekend. The Black Cats’ draw with Leicester last week was enough to assure their survival, and luckily so, having drawn the champions at Stamford Bridge for their final match. Diego Costa remains a chance of winning the Golden Boot this season but will need to score several times on Saturday, in what is likely to be the weekend’s most one-sided affair.

Newcastle United vs West Ham United

Newcastle remain in danger of demotion after failing to take anything from their last ten of their last eleven matches, but are offered their best chance of success in play West Ham at St James Park this weekend. The Hammers have also been far from convincing over several stages of the current season but were never threatened by the drop zone and look likely to finish eleventh. Stuart Downing has been a shining light for the London club and will be key if his side is to take anything from their final match.

Aston Villa vs Burnley

The arrival of Tim Sherwood in the Midlands has sparked Aston Villa into action over the late stages of this season; who have found somewhat consistent Premier League form and won through to the FA Cup final. Similarly to QPR, Burnley have never been able to keep up with the pace of the Premier League all season and will return to the second-tier for their 2015/16 campaign. Having lost heavily to Southampton last weekend, the Villans return home and will do everything in their power to respond, and should have no issue doing just that.

Crystal Palace vs Swansea City

Crystal Palace have continued to stake their claims as a legitimate Premier League club this season, and enter their final match off the back of an impressive 3-1 away win over Liverpool. Having sat around the same mark at their Week 38 rivals for the entire season, Swansea City’s good run of form have seen them climb to eighth in recent weeks, despite a loss at home to Manchester City last weekend. Palace have proven a tough task for even the league’s best at Selhurst Park this season, and should end their campaign with a hard-fought win.

Hull City vs Manchester United

Hull City are still a chance of survival but appear to have a little too great a task in Manchester United this weekend. The Tigers found good form around the middle of the season but have been unable to make much of their campaign since Christmas and are in the box seat for demotion. Following a slow start, United climbed as high as second overall and have assured themselves for a return to the Champions League. Having drawn with fierce rivals Arsenal last weekend, the Red Devils look likely to end Hull City’s Premier League stint.

Manchester City vs Southampton

Manchester City have been commendable in climbing back to second position after letting their chance of a repeat Premier League title evaporate, and will look to end their campaign in the best way possible against Southampton at Eastlands. Southampton will complete one of their best Premier League seasons on record this weekend and travel north off the back of an impressive 6-1 demolition of Aston Villa in Week 37. Sergio Aguero has led from the front with 25 goals this weekend and is sure to look cap his season with a few more.
