Crystal Palace vs. Manchester United
Crystal Palace to win (+200)
Manchester United are going to be disappointed with their season, as they are currently in sixth place with a 16W-10D-11L record heading into the final day of the season. United can finish no higher than sixth and are only two points ahead of West Ham, putting them in danger of dropping one additional spot.
United are away in this match, and they have struggled in their travels, going 6-5-7 with a -9 goal differential. They face a Palace team that is in 13th but are pretty good at home at 6-8-4 with a +9 goal difference.
There is evidence to believe Palace shouldn't be this big of an underdog in this matchup based on the home/away splits. At +200 to win, the Eagles offer enticing odds.
Brentford vs. Leeds
Over 3.5 Goals (+154)
This game provides an interesting matchup as Brentford are surpassingly in 11th place while Leeds are in 18th and battling to stay out of the relegation zone. Leeds will be desperate for a victory or tie in this one, and they will likely play aggressively and look for goals, which could lead to a very open and high-scoring game.
Leeds are the second-worst defensive team in the league as it is, conceding 78 goals in 37 matches. Brentford are not a great defensive team, either, surrendering 54 goals in 37 matches, so both teams have a tendency to leave themselves vulnerable.
With Leeds possibly needing a victory to avoid relegation, a high-scoring game seems very plausible, especially if Leeds fall behind and have to chase the match.
Burnley vs. Newcastle
Newcastle to win (+230)
Burnley are in a similar position to Leeds, as they are above the relegation zone on only goal difference. Burnley are facing a Newcastle team that turned their season around in January, as the Magpies are a sparkling 11-2-5 in their last 18 matches.
Burnley are the much more desperate team in this clash, but they are not playing nearly as well as Newcastle is and have gone just 6-4-8 in their last 18 matches.
Newcastle have been the much better team in the second half of this season, and they should expect to get three points, even against a Burnley team fighting for their spot in the top flight.
