Leicester are flying under Claude Puel, winning 4 Premier League games in a row, destroying his former club Southampton 4-1 in the midweek round and climbing the standings to 8th place. After a poor start to their season, Crystal Palace are unbeaten in their last 6 EPL fixtures looking so much better under Roy Hodgson, leaving last place in the standings for the 1st time this season. Despite their good form, Crystal Palace have the worst away record, being winless in 8 games and winning just 2 points in the process. Leicester should have enough to win this clash, maintain their great form and put some pressure on 7th-place Arsenal.

Free Soccer Pick: Leicester +106Best Line Offered: Pinnacle

Everton vs. Swansea (Premier League – Round 18)

Everton continued their revival under their new manager Sam Allardyce by winning their away match 1-0 at Newcastle and climbing the standings to 10th place. Allardyce says the key to Everton's return to form hasn't been “rocket science”. By the way things are looking right now, Everton enter this match full of confidence being very determined to continue their positive run. Swansea were destroyed on their turf by Manchester City in the midweek and sit bottom in the standings with just 12 points. They have the worst attack in the top-flight league with 9 goals scored in 17 rounds. This should be an easy home win and the odds for this outcome are huge. Allardyce has said Everton's Christmas party is not needed because of their place in the standings, so the Toffees will give 110% to win all their matches until Christmas and enjoy the party.

Rennes vs. PSG (Ligue 1 -- Round 18)

Rennes are now 6th in the standings after winning three of their last 4 Ligue 1 fixtures and enter this match trying to pull off the upset. PSG are flying in their domestic league being 9 points clear at the top of the table and huge favorites to win the title again. Their stellar attack has netted 51 goals in 17 rounds, and their defense is rock-solid conceding just 13 goals in the process. Rennes have been in great form lately, reaching the French Cup quarterfinals after beating Marseille 3-2 in the midweek. PSG have a huge attacking firepower, and players like Neymar, Mbappe and Cavani are scoring goals for fun. We expect an easy away win with PSG having enough to win by at least a 2-goal margin.

Stuttgart vs. Bayern Munich (Bundesliga – Round 17)

Stuttgart are on a 3-game losing streak, struggling to find the back of the net and sitting just 2 points above the danger zone. Bayern are looking great after sacking Carlo Ancelotti and replacing him with their former manager Jup Heynckes, being 9 points clear at the top of the table. They have a great head-to-head record against Stuttgart, winning their last 15 mutual encounters with 10 of them by 2 goals or more.
