Premier League Matchday 34 Preview: Villa Can Boost Top Four Hopes

Matchday 34 in the Premier League has a shorter look to it, with three fixtures rescheduled for mid-May due to the FA Cup semi-finals being staged this weekend. 

However, the seven-match line-up features some tasty-looking games which will have a major bearing on issues at both ends of the table. 

Read on as we look at some of the best Premier League games for Matchday 34 to highlight the key betting angles to consider. 


  • Blades in the last chance saloon.
  • Sunday double looks temping.
  • Over 2.5 goals market worth another attempt.

Blades Face Day of Reckoning

Sheffield United head into their home match against Burnley on Saturday ten points adrift of 17th-placed Nottingham Forest with a game in hand. 
With Forest set to visit fellow strugglers Everton the following day, Chris Wilder’s side desperately need to pick up three points at Bramall Lane. 

Odds of 17/10 on football betting sites for the Blades could be worth chancing, although backing a team with three league wins this season makes limited appeal. 

Villa and Liverpool Fancied to Deliver

Aston Villa look a good bet at odds of 3/4 on UK betting apps to strengthen their grip on fourth place by defeating Bournemouth on Sunday. 

Villa have been formidable on home soil this season and will fancy their chances of boosting their bid to secure Champions League qualification. 

Putting Villa in a double with Liverpool to win at Fulham is priced at 13/8 and should deliver a winning return to punters this weekend. 

Bettors Could Land Tempting Five-Fold

We have come close to landing several multiple bets with tips in the over 1.5 and 2.5 goals markets in recent weeks, only to have our hopes dashed by one result. 

Villa’s 2-0 victory at Arsenal was the only blot on a potential 9/2 four-fold last weekend, but we are nothing if not persistent at Mansion Bet. 

The games at Villa, Luton Town, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Everton and Crystal Palace could hit the over 2.5 goals mark for an enticing 10/1 five-fold on new betting sites.
