Arsenal vs. Manchester United

Arsenal to win +105

Arsenal are having a good season, and they sit at 18W-3D-11L, which is good enough for fifth place. The Gunners trail Tottenham only by goal difference in the battle for the fourth spot.

Manchester United are three points behind Arsenal and have played one more match. United trail the Gunners by 9.3 in expected goal difference (xGD), per FBRef.

Home-field advantage could prove vital for Arsenal as they are 10-2-4 at home with a +13.8 xGD -- compared to Manchester United’s 6-5-5 away record with a -5.0 xGD in the split.

Arsenal are the slightly superior team on a neutral field, and home-field advantage gives them a clear edge in this matchup that will have a huge impact on the race for the final UCL spot.

Norwich vs. Newcastle

Newcastle to win +115

Newcastle have rolled off three consecutive wins, giving them a dazzling 9-1-3 record across their last 13 games. Their recent surge has moved the Magpies from the relegation zone all the way up to 11th place in what has been a remarkable turnaround.

Norwich are last in the league with a 5-6-21 record. They are also last in the league in goal difference at -44, which is 12 goals worse than 19th-ranked Watford, and they are last in the league in xGD at -33.6.

Given Newcastle’s extended run of good form, it is fair to expect them to win this game without much of an issue.

Brentford vs. Tottenham

Brentford and Draw -120

Brentford have been in incredible form the last month or so, going 5-0-1 in league games since the start of March and removing themselves from any relegation worries. This includes an impressive 4-1 win away to Chelsea and a 2-0 win at home against West Ham. Brentford are 6-2-8 at home with a +4.8 xGD, so they are a formidable opponent on their home turf.

Tottenham are 18-3-11 this season, putting them in the top four in the league. But unsurprisingly, their performance drops off slightly away from home, as they are only 8-2-6 in their travels with a +6.0 xGD.

Brentford’s good form of late could give them a slight edge in this game, and Tottenham should have a difficult time getting the full three points in this contest.
