Tottenham Hotspur may never have a better chance to beat Manchester City as the vulnerable-looking Premier Leaders lick their wounds after five straight losses in all competitions.
City have dominated the EPL all season, but were frustrated in their hopes of claiming the title last week in a 3-2 loss to local rivals Manchester United.
The Citizens looked decidedly mortal this week when their Champions League ambitions came to a crashing halt after a 2-1 quarterfinals loss to Liverpool, this week.
While Pep Guardiola’s City are still destined to claim two trophies this season after already bagging the League Cup, it may not be completed against an in-form Tottenham on Sunday.
Fourth-placed Spurs are riding a four-game winning streak, including an FA Cup quarterfinal last month, and are looking to finish second by the end of the season.
Tottenham are Sportsbet’s $2.50 favourite to win in London, with $2.60 for City and $3.50 for a draw.
Second-placed Manchester United, meanwhile, can frustrate City’s title ambitions further a win over last-placed West Bromwich Albion on Monday.
Jose Mourinho’s side are four-points clear of Liverpool and 13 behind City with six matches to play and will be desperate to claim a seemingly simple three points.
West Brom are without a manager and looking destined for relegation to the Championship after failing to win since the start of the year.
United are on just $1.12 to win at Old Trafford, with a whopping $18 for West Brom and $6.50 for a draw.
Liverpool were almost faultless over both legs of their Champions League demolition of Manchester City and will run over Bournemouth at home this week if it shows the same form.
The Reds are unbeaten in 18 EPL matches at Anfield and are riding their longest home winning streak 2009.
Eleventh-placed Bournemouth, meanwhile, look safe from relegation, but have won just one of their last five games.
The Reds are on just Liverpool $1.22 to stay in touch with a chance of second place, with $11 for Bournemouth and $6 for a draw.
Defending champion Chelsea have had a lacklustre state to 2018 and finds itself in danger of missing the top four and being overtaken by Arsenal.
The Blues’ last EPL victory at the start of March against Crystal Palace will be desperate for a win at Southampton.
The 18th-placed Saints will have their own motivation, after losing three straight games to sit just two points outside the relegation zone.
Chelsea is paying $1.83 to take the points, while Southampton is on $4.33 and $3.50 for a draw.
Aaron Mooy’s Huddersfield sit four points and two places above the relegation-zone and need to beat Watford at home this week to boost its chances of remaining in the Premier League.
Huddersfield claimed a much-needed point from its previous match against Brighton, but faces a tough road toward the end of the season with encounters against Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal in the offing.
Huddersfield is tipped to have the better of Watford on Sunday with $2.63 for a win against $2.75 for a loss and $3.10 for a draw.
