Sunderland’s survival hopes was solidified by a brilliant four-match streak of points-producing efforts. The side were winners in their past three matches, earning surprise victories from powerhouses like Chelsea 1-2, Manchester United 0-1, and now-relegated Cardiff City 4-0. The successes were largely driven by Connor Wickham, who scored the majority of the goals and provided the best assist for their most recent win. The former drop zone candidates now only need one point to secure their place for next season.


West Brom won only one of their last four matches, where two went unproductive and one quite dull. Being three points clear of Norwich City and with two more matches to engage in, the side are already certain of their presence in Premier League’s next season.


Sports betting tip: Being more determined to earn all the spoils, Sunderland will win this tourney over.
