Matchday 26 Premier League betting insight

By Matt Pitt

Chelsea (-425) vs. Swansea City (+950)

Chelsea

Chelsea play host to a resurgent Swansea City knowing that a victory could see them move 11 points clear at the top of the table with a victory.

The Blues have lost only three times in the league this season thanks to having the best defensive record. They've only conceded 18 goals in 25 games, keeping 13 clean sheets along the way.

Antonio Conte’s men have won their previous nine home matches, including an impressive 3-1 victory over Arsenal the last time they turned out at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea odds

Visitors Swansea may only be four points safe of the relegation zone but their recent form tells a different tale. They have four wins in their last six games as new manager Paul Clement has worked wonders since taking over. But Chelsea are just far too strong for the Welsh outfit and you should back Chelsea to win.

Pick: Chelsea-Chelsea Half Time / Full Time at -135

Everton (-265) vs. Sunderland (+650)

Everton 

Looking at form over the past six games, Everton are top of the table courtesy of four wins and two draws, scoring 15 goals and only conceding four in the process.

This weekend they take on Sunderland, who remain rooted to the bottom of the table and look the most likely team to be relegated. 

Everton have won each of their last three home league games by a three-goal margin, beating Southampton 3-0, Manchester City 4-0 and Bournemouth 6-3.

Romelu Lukaku has netted six goals in those three games and will be relishing facing a defense that has more holes than Swiss cheese; Sunderland’s defense has allowed 46 goals - tied for the second most in the top flight - this season and only kept one shutout on the road. 

Everton correct score

Sunderland, in their last five defeats, have allowed at least three goals in four of those encounters. This latest game could go the same way as Sunderland look outclassed in every area of the pitch.

Pick: Everton to win 3-0 at +850 or Everton to win by 3 or more goals at +250

Leicester City (+450) vs. Liverpool (-170)

Liverpool 

Reigning champions Leicester City are enduring a dreadful season, one that could see them face relegation. The Foxes are only one point off the drop zone and face a Liverpool team have been stuttering of late. But the Reds have scored 54 goals this campaign, more than any other team.

Liverpool first goal scorer

Leicester have only managed to score 24 goals in 25 games and have allowed 43. Throw into the mix the fact Leicester had a Champions League fixture on Feb. 22 -- they lost 2-1 away to Sevilla -- and everything points towards a Liverpool victory.

Pick: Liverpool to win at -170

The Oscars: Nomadland The Pick Of The Flicks

Making Oscars 2021 picks isn't like wagering on a sporting event. While certainly there is the so-called Oscar buzz that's generated around certain films, the decision on which movie, director or actor gains the Academy Award is solely based on a secret ballot held by the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. There are no past performances to assess, so going with an underdog isn't necessarily a bad strategy.
