Odds at Draftkings as of April 16

Newcastle vs West Ham Prediction

West Ham United is enjoying one of its best seasons for many years and will continue its attempt to qualify for the Champions League at Newcastle United on Saturday on EPL Matchday 32.

In fourth place, West Ham has turned expectations on its head after many believed they would struggle in this campaign.

Meanwhile, in 17th place, Newcastle is only six points above the relegation zone and has been in inconsistent form.

After winning its last two games, West Ham is rated by DraftKings as an attractively priced favorite at +108 for an away win – with kickoff at 7:30 am ET.

Newcastle is priced at +265 while the draw is +240.

In their most recent three games, West Ham has surged into 3-0 leads only to then live dangerously.

West Ham’s mood is buoyant while Newcastle boss Steve Bruce has been under pressure.

Arsenal fought back at the Hammers’ London Stadium to draw 3-3 on March 21. Then another three-goal lead nearly slipped as Wolves fought back to 3-2 in the subsequent game.

The same thing happened for West Ham at home against Leicester City who also fought back to lose 3-2 last Sunday.

Despite this, West Ham’s mood is buoyant while Newcastle boss Steve Bruce has been under pressure.

They were 2-1 winners at Burnley last weekend. But it was their first victory in eight EPL games.

Ironically, Newcastle were 2-0 winners at West Ham on the opening day of the season.

To sum up, with West Ham’s loan signing from Manchester United, Jesse Lingard, having scored eight goals since his arrival in January, they should claim another critical three points.

Pick: West Ham Utd to win +108

Leeds vs Liverpool Prediction

Leeds United has won its last three games to climb to 10th place ahead of and last weekend defeated runaway league leaders Manchester City 2-1 away from home.

Now, it will be tough at home on Monday in EPL Matchday 32 against a Liverpool side that has won five of its last six EPL fixtures on the road.

However, the draw looks a promising offer here at +330 given Leeds’ recent upturn – with kick-off at 3:00 pm ET.

Meanwhile, Draftkings make Liverpool favorites for an away win at -152 with Leeds as wide outsiders at +365.

These teams served up a memorable 4-3 home win for Liverpool on the first day of the season.

In sixth place, Liverpool’s sole aim now is to claim a UCL qualifying place after their exit from the competition in mid-week.

A blip of two straight defeats by Chelsea and Fulham in March threatened their European qualification hopes.

Leeds’ win at Man City made it three straight victories

But they have recovered in the last three games. Firstly, they won 1-0 at Wolves. After that came a 3-0 win at Arsenal.

Last time out they were 2-1 winners at home against Aston Villa.

Leeds’ triumph at Manchester City made it three straight wins after a 2-1 victory at struggling Fulham and a 2-1 home defeat of bottom club Sheffield United.

Now Leeds’ mood is confident enough for them to hold the reigning champions.

Pick: Draw +330

Chelsea vs Brighton & Hove Albion Prediction

Chelsea was not free-scoring under new coach Thomas Tuchel until a 4-1 win in the EPL at Crystal Palace last weekend.

However, they will hope to maintain that momentum at home against Brighton and Hove Albion next Tuesday in EPL Matchday 32 at 3:00 pm EST.

Further, Chelsea’s mood will surely be boosted by the fact that they reached the UCL’s last four in mid-week.

However, first Chelsea faces an FA Cup semifinal against Manchester City at Wembley on Saturday. If they win, they will become even more confident back in EPL action next mid-week.

Fifth-placed Chelsea is a wide favorite for a home win next Tuesday at -177 with 15th-placed Brighton at +510 and the draw +300.

The most compelling offer, however, is the +175 for Chelsea to win by two goals or more (Asian Handicap -1.5).

Meanwhile, after scoring twice against Palace, Christian Pulisic is interesting at +650 to be the first goalscorer for Chelsea.

There was a 3-1 win for Chelsea at Brighton last September.

Brighton suffered a worrying run of three straight defeats in late February and early March.

But they have recovered – with straight wins against Southampton and Newcastle followed by a narrow defeat at Manchester United and, subsequently, a 0-0 draw at home against Everton last time out.

That was stubborn but Chelsea looks likely to be able to breach Brighton’s defense to claim a comfortable win.

Pick: Chelsea – Asian Handicap -1.5 (+175)
