On the final day of the Premier League season, victories look assured for the top four where a £10 accumulator on Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal pays an easy looking 3/1 at Betway.com.

City are massive odds on favourites at 1/7 at Paddy Power to see off West Ham (28/1 Betvictor).

The draw is chalked up by bet365 at 8/1 but a home victory to nil looks the pick of the game at 10/11 with Skybet with victory by a margin of two an inviting 31/10 at Ladbrokes.

Sergio Aguero bagged a brace when his team last faced West Ham and the Argentine frontman is as short as 2/1 at William Hill to open the scoring again as the two teams renew hostilities, with in-form Edin Dzeko 11/4 to break the deadlock with the same team.

Liverpool are also emphatic favourites at 1/4 with bet365 to get the better of a Newcastle side that hasn’t enjoyed the best climax to the campaign and it’s 12/1 via Stan James for the beleaguered Magpies to stun the Kop by walking away with all three points.

Bet365 quote 9/2 for Liverpool to edge out the Tyneside outfit by one but it might be a more comfortable afternoon for the Reds, who are 8/13 in Paddy Power’s handicaps, when kicking off a goal in arrears.

Bolder punters can back them at 8/5 with the same firm when starting two goals back and it’s 7/1 at Skybet for Rodgers’s troops to net three times without reply.

Any triumph ‘to nil’ for the hosts, who must fancy themselves for a clean sheet, comes in at an enticing 13/10 courtesy of Betway.com.

Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea end their season in South Wales and they would love to emulate the 4-1 triumph they carded when facing Cardiff (15/2 bet365) at Stamford Bridge.

That scoreline, however, is a hefty 20/1 (bet365) and more realistic is either a victory by one for the Blues at 3/1 via Skybet or a 2-1 win (8/1, Winner.com).

For punters simply wanting to include the visitors in an accumulator, Ladbrokes offer 4/9 about an away victory with Betvictor chalking up 21/20 about the visitors holding the lead at the end of both halves.

At Carrow Road, Arsenal are hard to oppose as they take on Norwich (16/5 Betvictor) and bookies agree, hence Paddy Power rate the Gunners at 19/20 with an away win despite conceding at least once 23/10 at Ladbrokes.

With Hull City (12/5 Betway) likely to rest more players ahead of next weekend’s FA Cup final, Roberto Martinez’s Everton can also prevail on the road to cap an impressive first term in charge for the Spaniard – Stan James mark 11/10 against them getting the better of things at the KC Stadium.

Elsewhere, Manchester United are 6/4 via Paddy Power to end a miserable season on a high note at Southampton (17/10 Winner.com), William Hill make Tottenham 4/9 to have too much for Aston Villa (11/2 bet365) and, staying towards the bottom, Sunderland are even money at Skybet to see off Ladbrokes’ 3/1 shots Swansea.

Bet365 price Fulham at 8/5 to restore some pride when they entertain impressive Crystal Palace (15/8 Paddy Power) and Stan James quote 5/2 for West Brom and Stoke to be inseparable at the Hawthorns.

After a three-week break, Formula One returns this weekend on European soil with the Spanish Grand Prix.

Having won five races on the spin, Lewis Hamilton will inevitably attract cash, not only at 8/13 (William Hill) to win the race but also at 1/2 via Betvictor to start in pole position.

Just four points behind team-mate Nico Rosberg in the Drivers Championship standings, Hamilton is Skybet’s Massive1/3 title favourite while Ladbrokes post 4/7 on the Brit leading Rosberg home in another Mercedes one-two and the other man worth following is NicoHulkenberg, who keeps finishing in the top six and is 11/10 at Paddy Power to do so once more.

In Friday’s televised Super League clash, Warrington (1/2 Betvictor) host Catalan Dragons (2/1 bet365) at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

On the handicaps, Stan James give the French side an 8 point start at 10/11 while William Hill quote the same price about the Wolves overturning a six-point deficit.

Bet of the week: Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal all to win (3/1 Betway.com).
