Everton vs Arsenal
Everton +1 (no push) -150
Arsenal have had an extremely successful first season under manager Unai Emery, but their success has been mostly off the back of a 14W-2D-1L home record. Away from home, the Gunners are 5-4-5 for a win percentage of only 36%.
Everton have had a mediocre season, and they are not world beaters at home by any means. But they do own a 7-4-5 record at Goodison Park, which is good for a 69% win/draw rate. In their last two home matches, they've drawn 0-0 with Liverpool and defeated Chelsea by a 2-0 score.
Admittedly, Arsenal are the better side overall, but Everton's recent home form paired with Arsenal's season-long struggles away from the Emirates pushes us to the Toffees, who are more than capable of earning at least one point at home in this matchup.
Huddersfield vs Leicester
Leicester to win -145
Huddersfield are still sitting in last place with a 3-5-24 record and an abysmal -41 goal differential. They have gone 1-1-17 since December 1, and with relegation already locked up, all they're playing for is pride as they try to avoid setting some dubious EPL records.
This may not be the magical Leicester team that won the title, but this year’s version of the Foxes is still a quality side. Leicester are sitting in ninth place in the table, and they hold the sixth-best away record in the EPL. They should have more than enough talent to prevail against Huddersfield on Sunday.
Newcastle vs Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace to win (draw no bet) +112
Crystal Palace and Newcastle have had extremely similar seasons, with Palace ahead in the table by one point while also holding a superior goal difference by six goals.
Surprisingly, Palace have been better away from home (1.25 points per game) than at home (1.0 point per game), so the road matchup should not hinder their chances of winning. Given the safety net of a draw no bet, Palace to win at +112 provides favorable odds with this is such an evenly matched game. The only negative here is that Palace are playing on less rest after losing 2-0 at Spurs on Wednesday while Newcastle last played on Monday.
