    My pick for this round: Toronto FC - Chicago Fire
    Toronto are the last season's champions but they are doing badly this season. Mostly because they have been focusing on the North American version of the Champions league and playing reserves in MLS matches. That gamble almost paid off - they won 2:1 away at Chivas on Wednesday in the second leg of the final. Having lost the first leg 1:2 at home, they had to go to penalties - and the lost.
    So Toronto are not in the best mental state after that loss. They are also tired after the trip to Mexico. Plenty of injuries, especially at  the back. They have to play a mix of regular and reserve players.
    I found odds of 1.9 for Chicago Fire +1 so I will take it.
    Chicago Fire are capable of getting a result on their day. They won at New York RB last week - they were lucky and that was a big surprise.

    Burnley vs Brighton
    The game that stood out for me when I was browsing through the odds of this weekend's Premier League games was this match-up between Europa League-chasing Burnley and relegation-threatened Brighton taking place at Turf Moor in a 3pm kick-off this Saturday afternoon.
    Burnley's price for a home win is really tempting. Yes, there have been recent hints that the pressure to seal that place in Europe next season is getting to Sean Dyche's team but this remains a Clarets side that are very difficult to play against. They are still in 7th place and just 4 points behind Arsenal.
    Brighton are having one of their dodgy spells. That's been the story of their season. A run of good results followed by a run of bad results followed by another run of bad results. Rinse and repeat. It's the reason why they've failed to avoid getting sucked back into the relegation battle. In 13th place and on 36 points, you'd have to say Chris Hughton's side are realistically safe but until it's mathematically confirmed there will be nerves within the Seagulls camp and fan base.
    The long price for a Burnley win is suspicious but at that price they have to be backed. Neither team is in a great spell of form but when the visiting side have only won on the road twice this season and only earned 10 points from their 16 games on the road, it's hard to think they'll come to Dyche's back yard and take points. It will also be worth taking a risk and backing Ashley Barnes to score any time will be worthwhile. He's scored 6 goals in his last 8 Premier League matches and is lining up against his former club here.

    Fulham vs Sunderland
    Well, Tuesday was a bit of a bloody let down! So to avoid another huge disappointment I'm going to back Fulham to absolutely destroy Sunderland in this 7:45pm Friday night game at Craven Cottage. It's a must-win for Slavisa Jokanovic's side because a loss would allow Cardiff the chance to seal automatic promotion on Saturday against Hull.
    Let's be honest, it's hard to see beyond a solid Fulham win. The Cottagers just keep on winning. It's 17 wins and 5 draws from their last 22 league games. That is an unbeaten run in this division that leads right back to 16th December, 2017. Hang on! Who was it that last beat Fulham in the league? That's right... Sunderland! What a twist!
    I still think if Cardiff are to get promoted that they will need to win both of their remaining league games because I can't see Fulham dropping points right now. I really hope my chat here is going to jinx them. Apologies to any Fulham fans reading this! I really do think they'll win their remaining games starting with this one.
    How does Chris Coleman pick up his Black Cats side after their stunning relegation last weekend? Well, their away form offers encouragement with just 1 defeat from their last 5 league games on the road. He's made them a tough side to break down. I simply don't think they'll have enough resolute character to keep Fulham at bay.

    Derby vs Cardiff
    Huge game for my beloved Bluebirds tonight as we take on Derby away at Pride Park in a 7:45pm kick-off. It's the re-arranged match back from when the snow fell. The whole situation has been farcical. Even down to the verbal exchanges between the club officials, fans, and players. Yes, if you haven't seen the Sean Morrison Whatsapp video then probably best you don't waste your time!
    This is a crunch game for Cardiff. A win here could potentially set it up for us to be automatically promoted this coming weekend away at Hull. Those that want us to fail are claiming this is a do or die game. It's not. It's a freebie. It's a chance to really move to the cusp of the Premier League.
    I was delighted with the win last weekend against Nottingham Forest. I think given his own pre-season with the players, Karanka will do something with Forest next season. They are clearly a capable team already. It was a potential banana skin we avoided. One of the main reasons for that was the return of Joe Ralls but also the return to form of Aron Gunnarsson. His match-winning goal and THAT block after the Sol Bamba error summed up just why we are at the top against all the odds.
    It'll be interesting to see what squad Warnock opts for here. He's done well to calm down the furore that had built between the clubs after snow-gate by being complimentary about Derby as a club. It's all mind games. He doesn't want Derby firing with a chip on their shoulder.
    The form of the Rams has been woeful lately. Exactly like it was at the back-end of last season. It's suggested that Rowett pushes his players too much throughout the season so when it comes to the business end they have nothing left. Just 2 wins from their last 13 matches and 4 losses from their last 6 games appears to back that. Their home record isn't great either as they haven't even hit the 50% win ratio on home turf.
    All the talk is about Cardiff's promotion hopes here but there's more pressure on Derby. We can afford to lose and still have matters in our own hands. If Derby lose tonight then their fate is taken out of their control. It's in front of their own fans and they'll get twitchy if things don't start well. I know. I've been there as a Cardiff fan. I'm quietly optimistic we can win this and look to seal promotion at the KC Stadium on the weekend. I think the draw no bet and less than 2.5 goals scored are the best bets here. Cheeky small wager on Kenneth Zohore to score anytime as well if you fancy it.

    Everton vs Newcastle
    If there was one game this weekend in the Premier League that was never likely to be a thrilling encounter then it's the Monday Night Football game between Everton and Newcastle taking place at Goodison Park in an 8pm kick-off this evening. A clash of two progressive styles!
    The Toffees are 9th in the table on 42 points from 34 games. The Toon Army are one place below them on 41 points from 33 matches but could leap frog their opponents with a win. It will be the 15th meeting between Sam Allardyce and Rafa Benitez. Benitez has won 7 of the previous 14 with Allardyce taking 4 victories.
    Newcastle are in top form right now with 4 wins from their last 4 league games. It's been a mix of opponents as well so it's not been an easy set of games to win with their opponents including Arsenal, Leicester, Huddersfield, and Southampton. However, it should be noted that 3 of those wins came at home. Their last five away games have seen just one win. This is a Newcastle side full on confidence with 12 points from a possible 12 though in their last 4 winning league games. Can they make it five in a row tonight?
    Everton are embroiled in even more negativity after a substandard season. A fan survey was sent out allowing the club's supporters to rate the work Allardyce and his team have done so far. Funnily enough, a large percentage of football fans embraced the idea but those working within the game criticised it. No surprise there! There is still a potential 8th placed finish up for grabs and given their awful start to the season under Ronald Koeman that would be considered a miracle by Allardyce.
    The sticking point here is Newcastle's away form. Benitez has seen his side struggle on the road with just 4 wins from their 16 away games. It's by no means the worst in the division but it does not inspire hope of a victory here. Everton have been greatly improved at home under Allardyce with 9 wins from their 17 home matches this season. Only the top six teams have a better home record this season.
    I'm dithering between a home win and draw. The odds aren't good enough to cover both bases so I might take a punt and back the home win given the odds and Everton's recent home form. Goodison Park is a tough place to visit once again. I just think there is so little separating these sides right now that home advantage might be the difference maker.

    Dijon FCO vs Olympique Lyonnais
    2018, April 20, 21:00 hrs
    French Ligue 1
    Dijon is in a safe situation, far from the relegation posts, but also far from the European positions, however it has been a respectable season for the team. Thanks to a good performance at home where of 16 games the team has won 9, only losing 4. Of the last five home games, the team achieved victory in three, however in the two most recent ties with the Amiens SC and lost to Olympique de Marseille.
    With only one defeat, precisely that of Marseille, in the last five games the team has improved in its recent form, but against one of the four top teams of the French league a complicated match is expected. And more when many of their offensive key players will miss this match.
    For its part Lyon after its elimination of the Europa League against CSKA Moscow, has a four-game winning streak in line, two away and two home, without having allowed a goal in the last three games. So the Lyon comes in great form, with four away match without losing and has 14 consecutive away games making at least one goal. In addition to the fact that the visitor has 10 wins in 17 games, the performance of the visiting team is very positive.
    With few matches in dispute, the team seeks to distance itself from Marseille and if possible to unseat AS Monaco from second place. Because although the distance they have with the rest of the teams, the first four already guaranteed participation in Europe, but it remains to be defined if it will be in the Europa League or in the Champions League, so they can not relax, the team has the offensive options for it, since the pair Mariano Diaz and N. Fekir have achieved 34 goals altogether, many more goals than some teams. An even that Mariano Diaz will be sideline, the team has players to fill his spot.
    Taking into account the previous  the game should be taken by Lyon, however the last match played in Gaston Gerard was a Dijon victory by 4-2 and the other two matches between them played in Parc OL, have been closed, a draw 3-3 and a 4-2 victory of Lyon, before those games the Dijon was in lower categories, so I see as the best option the option of more than 3 goals. Since at least on the part of Lyon the offensive elements are guaranteed and the defense of the Dijon barely has a match without accepting a goal in the last five.

    Last match at Municipal du Roudourou, Monaco claim the victory by 1-2, but previous two was a 3-3 draw and 1-0 victory to Guingamp, therefore Monaco has improved in their matches there, but as you say it is yet to see how they will bounce back from last match result.
    As Guingamp is capable of the best or the worst, I prefer to stay away from this match, but the most probable is indeed the Monaco victory.

    If I might add a couple of facts regarding this match:

    10/16 games (63%) were Over 2.5 goals. In 12 of those games (75%) both teams scored.
    Lyon's away record:
    13/17 games (76%) were Over 2.5 goals. In 10 of those games (59%) both teams scored.
    h2h record:
    All of the last 5 matches (100%) between the two teams, regardless of the home ground, were Over 2.5 goals.
    It's clear that Over 2.5 goals is highly possible, but odds below 1.50 are not appealing enough for me.
    Therefore my call is Both Teams to Score @ 1.70

    Bayer Leverkusen vs Eintracht Frankfurt
    2018, April 14, 15:30
    Bundesliga
    Bayer Leverkusen is in the fourth and last position to participate in Champions League, and faces the fifth classified Eintracht Frankfurt, which is only two points behind, so this game becomes very important for the aspirations of both. Bayer could take an advantage of five points, or Eintracht Frankfurt gets to be 1 point ahead, or thinks remains as they are.

    Bayer Leverkusen's recent performance has been good, he has only one defeat in the last four games, with an important victory against RB Leipzig. Home has been good this season, although he has tied almost as many games as he has won, however it should be noted to have a bit of caution since his last two home losses were within the last four games played. The team is one of the top four, but his home performance is just regular, affected mainly by the two losses mentioned, otherwise he would be one of the best home sides, more in accordance with his position in the general table. This conditioned the stake a little.

    For its part, Eintracht's performance has been regular, with two wins in the last five games, and in the last five away games, it has taken four losses. But it is worth mentioning that in the previous eight away matchesonly lost one game, which gives some support for this game. Additionally, he is one of the top five Bundesliga away teams this season.

    Four of the last six meetings at Leverkusen Bay Arena have ended with victory for the home side, with a draw and a victory for the visitors. Fact that is added to the previous ones to opt for Bayer Leverkusen in this game with a medium stake, given that he had two recents defeats there, but seems to have recovered and the visitor Eintracht can not find answers at away, and the importance of this game is absolute  for Bayer.   Bayer Leverkusen with 6 points @ 1.78 at 1xBet
