Daily Football Predictions-19-05-2022

It’s been an eventful Premier League campaign and we are mere days away from the final matchday.

The title race remains in the balance and will go down to the wire, as well as the relegation fixtures.

Before the final matchday on Sunday, three oustanding games lie in wait on Thursday and we’ve made sure to cover them as they could have some impact at either end of the table.

Straight Wins

Chelsea have secured third place in the Premier League with a game to spare but will want to end their season on a high by beating Leicester at Stamford Bridge. The Foxes haven’t performed well on the road this season but did manage to secure an impressive 5-1 win at Watford on Sunday. We’re backing the FA Cup final runners-up to claim all 3pts at home to Leicester on Thursday. Chelsea have won three of their last five encounters with the Foxes. Leicester have lost three of their last five matches, including two of their last three away games. This should be an easy fixture for Chelsea as they have qualified for Champions League football for next season and have not much pressure to win here. Bet9ja have 1.38 odds, Paripesa have 1.40 odds and 1xBet have 1.40 odds.

Everton missed out on securing their Premier League status at the weekend but on the 19th of May, the Toffees have a second chance to get over the line if they can beat Crystal Palace at Goodison Park. The Eagles have little left to play for this season but Everton have injuries and suspensions to deal with which should make for a close and competitive 90-minutes in Merseyside. Two red cards in their previous fixture saw them settle for a loss in what was supposed to be a win after going in front twice. Everton are the clear favorites here as they have a lot on the line that they are playing for. Bet9ja have 1.94 odds, Paripesa have 2.01  odds and 1xBet have 2.01 odds.

Over 2.5 Goals

Four of the last five head-to-heads between Everton and Crystal Palace in all competitions have produced at least three goals, including the Eagles’ 4-0 FA Cup win over Everton a couple of months ago. Two of Everton’s last three outings have witnessed at least three goals being scored and with all the injuries and suspensions the hosts have right now, we’re expecting lots of goalmouth action at each end of the pitch. With that in mind, we should expect a lot of goals from this matchup. Bet9ja have 2.04 odds, Paripesa have 2.12 odds and 1xBet have 2.12 odds.

 Another selection for the Chelsea vs Leicester fixture is an over 2.5 outcome given the way both sides have been playing recently. Chelsea have produced an over 2.5 result in their previous two games in the Premier League while Leicester has seen such results in their previous three fixtures. H2H records for both sides in the last consecutive games have seen an over 2.5 scoreline and the reverse fixture this season saw Chelsea score three unanswered goals. Today’s scoreline for the match might not be as straightforward but we are definitely expecting a high-scoring affair. Bet9ja have 1.60 odds, Paripesa have 1.69 odds and 1xBet have 1.69 odds.

Anytime Goalscorers


Lukaku certainly hasn’t had the season he or anyone expected of him in terms of goal returns for the huge investment Chelsea made in him last summer. Regardless, the Belgian international has been in good form of late. With 8-goals in the league alone this season, Lukaku is Chelsea’s second top scorer in the Premier League and has netted 3-goals in his last two league games for the club and we’re backing the 29-year-old to score against Leicester on Thursday night. Bet9ja have 2.40 odds while Paripesa have 2.05 odds.                                                                                                                                  


Richarlison is enjoying a run of three consecutive scoring home games for Everton, two of which were team openers and crucial to the result. This is another crucial game in which Everton needs to win and we are sure to see the Brazilian put up a good performance and find the back of the net here. Bet9ja have 2.50 odds while Paripesa have 2.40 odds.
