Southampton vs Leicester City Prediction
Leicester City has recovered form as it hunts for a Champions League place and is rightly favored for an away win at struggling Southampton on Friday in EPL Matchday 34.
In third position and on a run of six wins in eight games in league and cup, Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester team also earned a major confidence boost by reaching the FA Cup final.
A sixth on Friday? 🤞
— Southampton FC (@SouthamptonFC) April 28, 2021
Southampton is in 15th place and lost its last three matches including a 1-0 defeat by Leicester in the FA Cup semifinal at Wembley on April 18.
At DraftKings, the oddsmakers price Leicester as a -110 favorite with kick-off at 3:00 pm ET.
Meanwhile, Southampton is rated at +280 with the draw at +290.
More favorable is the spread offering – also at +255 – for in-form Leicester to win by at least two goals (Asian Handicap -1.5).
The team has hit a prolific streak lately by scoring 16 times in its last seven matches in all competitions.
They were 2-1 winners last time out at home against Crystal Palace following a 3-0 home defeat of WBA.
Leicester is the third most prolific side on the road in the EPL with 30 goals in 10 away wins.
Certainly, those statistics were driven by the superb form of striker Kelechi Iheanacho. He has scored 12 times in his last nine appearances.
Further, Leicester is the third most prolific side on the road in the EPL with 30 goals in 10 away wins.

So, with Leicester buoyed by their recent success, a comfortable win is on the cards at St. Mary’s.
Pick: Leicester City +255 (Asian Handicap -1.5)
Manchester United vs Liverpool Prediction
There were three draws in the last five meetings between Manchester United and Liverpool and another is likely on Sunday in EPL Matchday 34.

Meanwhile, Liverpool is in sixth place and is battling to confirm a European qualifying spot after picking up form in a five-match undefeated run.
Liverpool is surprisingly favored for an away win at +150 with kickoff at 11:30 am ET.
United is meanwhile rated at +170 with the draw attractive at +260.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United side won its last four EPL games at Old Trafford. They are also on a high after the 6-2 hammering of Roma in Manchester on Thursday in the Europa League’s semifinal first-leg.
It has the third-best home statistics with nine wins, three draws and four defeats.
Furthermore, Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani have both hit form. Greenwood has scored five in seven and Cavani has hit three in four.
Liverpool steadied its form after a dreadful run of six defeats in seven.
However, United was held to a 0-0 draw by Leeds United last time out in the EPL; ending a run of five straight league wins.
Liverpool steadied its form after a dreadful run of six defeats in seven in February and March.

But they have not been fully convincing and drew 1-1 draw at home against Newcastle United last weekend.
United won 3-2 in the FA Cup at home against Liverpool on January 24. A week earlier there had been a 0-0 draw at Anfield – and, in conclusion, another draw is likely this time around.
Pick: Draw +260
Burnley vs West Ham United Prediction
West Ham United has lost its last two and needs to get its bid for a Champions League place back on course at Burnley on Monday.
Burnley has, meanwhile, lost three of its last four games and has won only four times at home while drawing six and losing six.
So the price of +125 for an away West Ham looks good value with kick-off at 3:15 pm ET.
After that, Burnley is rated at +215 with the draw at +250.
David Moyes’ West Ham outfit is in fifth place. But it is coming off a 1-0 home defeat by Chelsea and a surprise 3-2 setback at Newcastle.
West Ham was a 1-0 winner at home against Burnley in January.
Burnley is in 14th place and claimed an impressive 4-0 win at Wolves last time out.
But that followed straight defeats by Southampton, Newcastle and Manchester United.

West Ham was a 1-0 winner at home against Burnley in January.
Therefore, another win is on the cards as they aim for a top-four finish.
Pick: West Ham Utd +125
