It’s another action-packed weekend of exciting football matches across Europe. Here are the Top 5 Bets for the Weekend for you to give thought to. Bet on these games here. 

Everton v Arsenal - Over 2.5 Goals - 1.55

Both of these struggling teams are close to appointing their respective permanent managers. Carlo Ancelotti has been tipped to take over at Goodison Park, while Manchester City assistant manager Mike Arteta is expected to be Arsenal’s new manager. Four of Everton’s last five matches in all competitions have seen three or more goals scored, while all of the Gunners’ last five games in all competitions have seen Over 2.5 Goals. Four of the last six encounters between these two have seen Over 2.5 Goals. Both defences are poor. Everton have kept just three clean sheets in the Premier League this season while the visitors have kept two.

Norwich v Wolves - Over 2.5 Goals - 1.75

Relegation candidates Norwich welcome top six contender Wolves as they look for their first home win in five games. Wolves’ 11-game unbeaten run was ended in dramatic fashion last time out by Tottenham Hotspur. The Canaries have conceded two or more goals in seven of their eight home games in the Premier League this season. Four of Wolves’ last six league games have seen three or more goals scored. Three of the last five meetings between these two have seen Over 2.5 Goals. Norwich have the second-worst defence in the league while Wolves can’t seem to keep a clean sheet away from home.

Nice v Toulouse - Nice Win - 1.70

Nice are having a poor season. They’ve won just three matches since September and find themselves 14th after 18 games. Toulouse, on the other hand, are in crisis mode. They sit bottom of the table and have lost eight straight games. The hosts have a solid home record. Since November 2018, they’ve lost just three games, while winning three of their last four. Toulouse’s horrendous form gives Nice the upper hand.

Inter Milan v Genoa - Over 2.5 Goals - 1.65

Inter Milan are three points behind Serie A leaders Juventus but have a game in hand. Two draws against AS Roma and Fiorentina mean they are winless in their last three games. They host relegation-threatened side Genoa. Nine of Inter’s last 11 games have seen Over 2.5 Goals scored. Six of Genoa’s eight away games in the Serie A this season have seen three or more goals scored. They failed to score in just two of those matches. Moreover, Genoa have the second-worst defence in Serie A.

Levante v Celta Vigo - Over 2.5 Goals - 1.65

Celta Vigo will be aiming to move out of the relegation zone when they visit Levante on Sunday. Celta are 18th in the table with 14 points from 17 games while hosts Levante are 11th with 23 points. Five of the last six meetings between these two have seen Over 2.5 Goals. Levante’s last five games in all competitions have seen three or more goals scored while four of Celta’s last five games in La Liga have seen Over 2.5 Goals.
