Liverpool may have won the Premier League title, but the season is far from done and dusted. European qualification is still up for grabs for teams like Chelsea, Manchester United, Wolves and Arsenal.
These clubs are all within eight points of each other with six matches to go. The relegation fight is also hotter than ever with Watford and West Ham just one, and three points above the drop zone, respectively.
Furthermore, this week’s fixture list will be highlighted by Leicester away to Arsenal. This is a massive clash between two clubs headed in very opposite directions. Other games to look forward to will be Watford against Norwich in a relegation battle for the ages, and Everton hosting Southampton which is a game that could surprise some fans.

All odds taken July 5th
Pick 1: Leicester to Upset the Gunners
This match has all the signs of being a real cracker of a game. Arsenal are vying for European competition, while Leicester are trying to grip a hold to any sign of good form since the Premier League restart.
However, the Leicester moneyline has tremendous value at +200 for a third place team.

The Foxes proved themselves against Crystal Palace on the weekend and will be traveling to the Emirates, a place where the Gunners have dropped points eight times this season. However, give respect where it is due. Mikel Arteta’s squad has put together a solid run of victories.
But nothing has really changed about this club, they always fall short in the big ones. Winning against Norwich and Sheffield is not good enough to justify a result against a very, very good Leicester side.
Pick: Leicester Moneyline (+200)
Pick 2: Take Southampton on the Moneyline
The next best bet for the week is a match with some real intrigue as Everton takes on the Saints from Southampton. Both teams have been scintillating since the restart. The Toffees have won two out of three, with a draw to their neighbors, Liverpool.
Meanwhile, Southampton have won three out of their last four including a victory against Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.
This is a match where Ralph Hasenhüttl could prove his team is legit. Danny Ings will be chasing a Premier League Golden Boot award still within reach, so expect their offense to be clicking at a high clip. The value for this bet is one of the best for the entire match week, which makes it all the more enticing.
Pick: Southampton Moneyline (+255)
Pick 3: Man U to Cover the Spread
The last bet for Matchday 34 is between Aston Villa and Manchester United. The Red Devils of the Northwest have been flying since Bruno Fernandes came to town. United has averaged 3.25 goals in their last four games, while the margin of victory was an average of 2.5.

Aston Villa have been dreadful in the Premier League as of late, and Jack Grealish has not been able to help them come out of it. They lost to a sluggish Liverpool team Sunday and look to be done in for relegation this season. Expect this match to end in a drubbing with multiple Manchester United scorers.
Pick: Manchester United Spread -1 1/2 (+104)
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
