West Ham United - Chelsea
West Ham come into this match as heavy underdogs and are paying out a solid +350, the hammers have won three of their last 5 against Chelsea playing at home and it could give the bettor initiative to bet on the home side.
The game could have a lot of goals as both teams have enough talent to put the ball in the back of the net, at +106 over 2.5 goals could be a safe and solid bet.
Leeds United - Manchester United
Never count out Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds side, who have taken it to the big teams of the Premier League this season. At home and at +300 look for the attacking minded Bielsa side to give ManU a run for their money. Leeds is unbeaten in their last 5 matches and are starting to become contenders to qualify for Europe next season.
The high scoring Leeds could make a bettor believe this game will have over 2.5 or even 3.5 goals and at +148 over 3.5 could be a good bet. A half time winner could be Manchester United and at +132 is paying out nicely.
An interesting parlay for these matches would be a West Ham and Chelsea draw and a Leeds upset win. At $100 the bettor stands to win $1,500 in earnings. These games will not be at all easy for neither Manchester United nor Chelsea.
