With just two games to go (three for Sunderland) it’s twitchy bum time at the foot of the Premier League table. Burnley and QPR may have officially bit the dust now – but it’s still mathematically possible that any one of five teams can join them in the Championship next season.
All 5 teams play on Saturday, and most eyes will be on the clash between Sunderland and Leicester where a victory could guarantee safety for one of them.
So if you’re watching this weekend let’s find out what you should bet on the Football.
Sunderland vs Leicester
The only recent game between the two sides ended 0-0, and current form is probably more important. However, both sides are currently playing as well as they’ve done all season with Sunderland having taken 7 points from their last 3 games, and Leicester with just a loss to Manchester City spoiling an otherwise 100% record in their last 7 games. It’s a tough call but, a draw probably wouldn’t do either team any harm, and that looks the value at 23/10.
Draw @ 23/10 (Various)
Southampton vs Villa
Villa currently have the safest seat in the house, but probably still need a draw to make sure of staying up. Southampton look to have completely lost interest though and, with the Villa players motivated from trying to get a place in the team for the FA Cup final, look capable of getting at least a point if not sneaking a win. Therefore laying Southampton looks the call.

QPR vs Newcastle
QPR may be down but, as they often say that pride comes before a fall, Newcastle shouldn’t expect them to just roll over. Even if they do Newcastle, despite a draw last week, aren’t guaranteed to capitalize as their form has been dreadful in the last quarter of the season. Newcastle’s draw was also against a West Brom side that QPR recently stuffed 4-1, and therefore QPR shouldn’t be trading at 21/10.

Spurs vs Hull
Hull find themselves in the relegation hot seat and will be desperate for a win at White Hart Lane. The trouble is they’ve looked nervous in defeat in their last two games. A point may still give Hull a lifeline though and, having drawn two of their last 3 games against Spurs, they look value to do so again.
Draw @ 3/1 (BetVictor)
