Before traveling to play relegation-candidate Stoke City on Saturday, Tottenham is sitting fourth in the EPL standings with 64 points. They are two points behind third-place Liverpool, but they have a match in hand on them. Despite being without superstar Harry Kane, Tottenham enters this match on the back of five consecutive wins and they are expected to extend this impressive record and return home with the three points to secure third place and maintain the pressure on United and Liverpool. They’ve won their last four head-to-heads against Stoke, scoring at least four goals in each game and conceding just one in all four. Stoke City is desperate for points as they are 19th in the standings, three points behind the first salvation spot with six rounds before the end of the season. After being knocked out from the Champions League by Juventus, Tottenham is 100 percent focused on their domestic league and we expect them to win this match and cover the -1.5 Asian Handicap. They’ve won four consecutive away matches, currently being on an 11-match unbeaten run on the road. This victory would take them one step closer to securing Champions League football next season. Best pick for the match: Tottenham to win with -1.5 AH at +100 with Pinnacle.

Hamburg vs. Schalke (Bundesliga, Round 29)

Hamburg, which has the worst attack in Bundesliga and is in last place in the standings, hosts the second-best defense in the German top-flight league, Schalke, on Saturday. We don’t understand the price for an away win but let’s take it as soon as possible and take advantage of this incredible gift from most of the sportsbooks. Schalke is on fire, winning their last six Bundesliga matches. They enter this match full of confidence and determined to secure second place by winning their seventh match in a row. They now enjoy a four-point lead over third-place Dortmund and only a miracle might see them lose their spot. Hamburg is winless in their last 15 Bundesliga matches and we expect them to have the same fate against Schalke. After his clean sheet against Freiburg from last round, Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann has now gone 462 Bundesliga minutes without conceding. This says enough about Schalke’s rock-solid defense, and combined with Hamburg’s poor attacking performance the result should be only one. Best pick for the match: Schalke to win at +100 with Betfair.

Augsburg vs. Bayern Munich (Bundesliga, Round 29)

If Bayern Munich wins Saturday's clash, they will win the Bundesliga title regardless of other results. After the away defeat against RB Leipzig they bounced back, destroying rival Dortmund 6-0. Not just that, but they have the first chance to qualify in the Champions League semifinals after beating Sevilla 2-1 on the road in the first quarterfinals leg. Augsburg is a mid-table side with huge ups and downs this season. Bayern’s record against Augsburg is impressive, winning their last six encounters, scoring at least two goals in each of them and winning by at least two goals. The German giants have been in imperious form of late, possessing brilliant attacking firepower and amazing skillful players. The visitors should have enough to win this match and once again be crowned as Bundesliga winners with five rounds before the end of the season. Best pick for the match: Bayern Munich to win with -1 AH at -117 with Unibet.

Extra tip: Metz vs. Lyon (Ligue 1, Round 32): Lyon to win with -1 AH at -114 with BetVictor.
