The 2018/19 Premier League season concludes on Sunday with Liverpool and Manchester City still fighting it out for the title. The UEFA Champions League positions are almost finalised with the relegation spots a certainty. However, there are two fixtures which could well produce minor upsets and it is worth putting money on these:

Leicester City vs. Chelsea (16:00 SAST)


Chelsea would ordinarily be considered favourites for this match but their poor away record couples with the Foxes' incredible form at home means Brendan Rodgers' men have a great chance of victory at the King Power Stadium.

Jamie Vardy has scored 10 goals in his last 10 Premier League matches and has netted in consecutive appearances for Leicester against Chelsea. He is a great bet for anytime goalscorer at 2.05 at Hollywoodbets.

Leicester have won four of their last five home Premier League matches and Chelsea have lost five of their last six in the league against teams outside the relegation zone. There is value in a Leicester win at 2.50 at Hollywoodbets.

Burnley vs. Arsenal (16:00 SAST)


Burnley are on a great run of form at home themselves and have six wins, one draw and three defeats from their last 10 matches at Turf Moor. Just as well for Sean Dyche's men that the Gunners tend to struggle on the road. Arsenal have lost three of their last four away Premier League matches, going down to Everton, Wolves and Burnley.

Arsenal are likely to have one eye on the UEFA Europa League final and to be exhausted after their midweek match against Valencia. There is therefore immense value in a Burnley win at 3.10 at Hollywoodbets.
