Everything important already decided we’re down to one final round of matches. With all of the last round matches being played at the same time on Sunday, we have a bumper crop of matches to look forward to.

Sunderland, Middlesbrough, and Hull are down. Chelsea already won the title. Spurs have sewn up second. 3rd and 4th are now the biggest concerns in people's minds and of course, there are some Europa League spots to be sorted out.

Let’s get started.

Arsenal plays Everton in the first of the ten matches taking place. Arsenal is still chasing fourth and 3 points here would do that crusade a world of good. Everton seems to have gone off the boil recently and it would be a bit of a shock if they were to get anything from this one. I’m not a fan of the available odds on the Match Odds market. Instead, I prefer Both Teams To Score (Yes).

There will be claret on the pitch as Burnley take on West Ham. This one could honestly go in any direction as neither side really has much to play for. Somehow though I don’t think Burnley players are the type to go on holiday a game early and they're more than decent home form could see them through to another win. Take the 2.45 for a home win with William Hill.

Chelsea should finish off a fine season in front of their home fans with another win against already relegated Sunderland. That said it’s difficult to find a bet worth the risk so I’m staying out of this one.

Also relegated are Hull City but they’ve been pretty good at home this season and Spurs may take their eye off the ball with their being nothing riding on this game. Having said that, that’s what I thought about the Leicester game and look at that. The value in this one is on the home side, I think it’s worth the risk.

Leicester v Bournemouth seems like a perfect end of season match. Both sides will be attacking but no-one will be flying into tackles and risking their summer holidays. This is another game where I’m on Both Teams To Score (Yes).

Manchester United has one eye on the Europa League final but they will probably have enough about them to beat Crystal Palace in their last game of the season.

I’m skipping Liverpool v Middlesbrough. Nothing here to excite me.

BetVictor are offering Both Teams To Score (No) in the Southampton v Stoke game. I think there’s value there as neither side has been particularly good recently.

Then we’re down to two matches. Swansea v West Brom has nothing riding on it and Swansea will just be happy to see the end of this season. West Brom hasn’t been in form for a while so this is another to avoid for me.

The final game does have some interest for me though. I like Manchester City -2 in their game against Watford. This one does mean something for the Manchester side and Watford will close out a fairly dismal season with another fairly dismal loss.
