The domestic leagues in Europe are all now coming to a close, with the coming weekend seeing the end of the EPL. We have had a dramatic race going on all season long, but it’s all going to be decided over the next few days, starting on Monday, with the reigning champions set to play in a must-win game that could all but secure them the title.
We are going to take a look at the 3 biggest games on the EPL calendar this week, whilst also paying a visit to a Champions League semi-final second leg that is very much all to play for, so let’s jump right into the soccer betting action.
Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week – May 6th Edition
We’ve bounced back in the @ChampionsLeague all season…

Manchester City vs Leicester City – Monday
The task for the defending champions is straightforward enough, which is that they win their final two games and they get to repeat as Premier League winners. This, though, is by no means an easy victory, as Manchester City will be going against a Leicester side that is in a rich vein of form at the moment.
We should also remember that Leicester ran out 2-1 winners when these two hooked up earlier in the season, although that one was played at King Power Stadium. City have the best home record in the league and have only dropped 3 points there all season. Tough to see them losing here.
Soccer Betting Prediction: Manchester City 2 – Leicester City 0
Ajax vs Tottenham – Wednesday
It’s never ideal to lose in the opening leg of a major semi-final, but Tottenham is sure to be quite pleased with heading with just one goal against. That said, the Dutch side have been totally fearless in this competition, so don’t expect them to sit back and try to hold on for the win.
They got here by being bold, winning 2-1 in Turin in the second leg to knock off Juventus. The bigger issue here is for Tottenham, as their recent form is brutal, although they have saved their best for the Champions League. I think Ajax snatch the away goal and move on in this one.
Soccer Betting Prediction: Ajax 1 – Tottenham 1
Liverpool vs Wolves – Sunday
You can bet that the Liverpool players and coaching staff will all be huddled around the TV watching Manchester City and Leicester square off on Monday. If it’s anything other than a City win in that one, then Liverpool will control their own destiny on Sunday. They have a 2-point lead at the top and need the defending champions to slip up.
That said, the Reds still need to win, which will be no easy task against a very good Wolves side. It was Liverpool who ran out 2-0 winners when these two hooked up earlier this season, and when you consider that Liverpool is unbeaten at home this season, you need to like them to win here.
Soccer Betting Prediction: Liverpool 2 – Wolves 0
Brighton vs Manchester City
Brighton will be coming into the final game of the season on a bit of a high after doing just enough to avoid relegation. There is sure to be a bit of a party atmosphere going on, but the fans likely to be celebrating the loudest when the final whistle blows are the Manchester City crowd.
If they win on Monday, they need to win here to ensure that the EPL trophy goes back to Manchester. This game is a total mismatch, so look for City to put on a bit of a show.
Soccer Betting Prediction: Brighton 0 – Manchester City 4
