Burnley FC +205 vs Leicester City +140
(Saturday, 11am EST)
Turf Moor will be an exceptional battle ground this Saturday as Leicester looks for back-to-back wins, and Burnley will be playing out of desperation as they hang one point off from regulation.
Leicester has only won back-to-back games 3 times this season but they smoked Fulham 3-1 last week and have a weaker opponent in Burnley. With Rodgers at the helm they have a much better chance to climb the table in the final weeks than they did with Puel. The Foxes are looking up at the 7th spot on the table currently held by the Wolves who are 6 points ahead.
Burnley showed incredible promise in January and February claiming 8 wins and collecting 18 points but have since suffered a lousy trend of 3 losses in a row. However, the Clarets have been unbeaten at home since late December and if they can hang onto history, they have a chance of dragging themselves further away from regulation.
These two teams have notoriously lacked goals in their meetings and drew in their last matchup. This game will break the monotony of this with Leicester excelling under their new leadership.
Leicester City are ready claim the 3 points available and replace 9th place West Ham as they inch their way up to the top half of the table.
English Premier League Free Picks – Leicester +140
Bournemouth +110 vs Newcastle +270
(Saturday, 11am EST)
Newcastle will be eager to pray on the weakness of Bournemouth and grab a top-flight position for next season. Bournemouth have not won a match since January 30th and a run as such does not bode well for a match against an energized Newcastle.
Newcastle is primed to overtake Bournemouth and should be raring to go after coming back to win over Everton. They haven’t lost at Vitality Stadium in the Premier League and have showed strength and confidence on the road.
Even with the wind at their backs, they will lack Fabian Schar due to suspension and Jamaal Lascelles could also be absent with a knee injury. If they are down those two players, it drastically changes the narrative.
The Cherries have had a helter skelter season but they will have Callum Wilson back in the lineup and could put up a good fight with the lack of power players in the Newcastle lineup
The Magpies and Cherries have been split with two wins a piece and a draw so on paper it’s a touch call. Newcastle is fired up and I predict them to take the match 2-1.

Everton +300 vs Chelsea -105
(Sunday, 12:30pm EST)
Everton has felt the struggle against the Premier League’s top half and are coming off an ugly loss against Everton but Chelsea are coming back from Kiev so….jet lag? Not likely.
In the last 6 matchups Everton has fallen hard with 4 losses, 1 draw and 1 win, whereas Chelsea is humming along with 4 wins and 2 draws. Making matters worse for Everton is the fact that they have not beaten Chelsea in their last six Premier matchups (3 losses/3 draws).
Three of the Premier League teams above Chelsea are out of action this weekend so this will be chance to jolt the competition if Chelsea comes calling. They may not have a tough time doing this as Everton has collected just 4 points in their last 6 matches. Everton does have a strong defensive angle but a loss to Newcastle is not a good sign.
Chelsea are good to go but have had a few defensive issues on the road. No one should be too worried about the outcome of this one. The Blues will look to shore up a few points and move up the ladder 2-1 over Everton.
