The European spots still to grab in the Premier League with 3 rounds to go till the end of the season. And it’s a tricky one, as many clubs still got a game in hand, so the table is more kind of a prediction. Tottenham have almost thrown away even the Europa League spot, and should get rid of Wolves as Everton possibly care more about the 6th place, and will have much easier task against Sheffield. Great odds on West Ham.
Tottenham vs. Wolves
Sunday, May 16, 2021 – 09:05 AM EDT at Tottenham Stadium
Everything is falling apart for the Spurs. No decision yet on the next manager, and sacking Jose Mourinho on that way seems as much nonsense as it already appeared. Actually, it is not even that clear they would care that much about the 6th or 7th place, whether that would mean Europa League or Conference League (as if Spurs would have a full cabinet to be proud about). The good thing for them is that Wolves have been far from being sharp, so actually, this won't be like facing the scary Leeds last week that tore them apart 3-1.
In the last 7 games Tottenham always have conceded but one, but that was against Sheffield. And Wolves in the last 7 games have ended by scoring in 5 matches because they do play and produce, but their issue is being back to be reliable and solid. Anyway, Tottenham motivation should play a part, and in fact what Wolves have missed the most lately is to be consistent during the game, as not playing for any target anymore is not helping at all to make them stay into the game, something that was already hard for Nuno Espirito Santo.

Everton vs. Sheffield United

Everton can't be blamed for anything: they are trying the best they can with what they have, for many moments in the season James Rodriguez was missing, and it's true they didn't overachieve and definitely the likes of Leicester and West Ham have been able to do much much better, but at the same time, the 8th place is exactly the kind of position for which Everton have the squad for. In the end they never disappointed, but just couldn't cope with the better sides.
They are equal on points with Spurs and for them, European qualification is quite significant, not like for Spurs that could find Europa League bit downgrading. Obviously the super bottom of the table Sheffield United aren't a proper opposition, so therefore the odds on Everton are understandably ridiculous. What is surprising is that the win by 2 goal handicap is actually so good priced, as Everton often deliver when they are supposed to.

Brighton vs. West Ham

West Ham are ending their season with disappointment. Actually, it's already huge that they are 6th and still in contention for the Champions League spot, for how unlikely it has turned to. But having been in the top 4 for a long time, it feels like they just missed the last gasp to complete an incredible season.
Anyway even Europa League for them would be huge, so there it goes all the difference with a Brighton already sunbathing at Palace Pier. And that might not even be just a metaphor, as they won only 2 games in the last 12, and actually luckily for them had already enough points not to face relegation. West Ham simply had 6 of the last 9 games against teams of higher half of the table, so let's say they have been good to exploit the scheduling when it was on their side. The odds on the Hammers are just too good to be overlooked.
