*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

It's clear from the PSV vs RKC Waalwijk odds that the bookies consider the hosts to be the expected winners by a huge margin, which is understandable given that PSV are the new champions, while RKC are in the midst of the relegation battle.

On top of that, PSV have been in great form lately and they've won 15 of their 16 home matches in the league this season. That being said, PSV don't really have a strong motive here since they've already won the title, while RKC Waalwijk are fighting for survival, which is pretty much the only advantage for the guests.

Anyhow, we also have a few more betting tips for today for you, if you enjoyed our tips for this match.

PSV Eindhoven have won the last five duels against RKC Waalwijk and they've clearly been the better team recently. In fact, that's also true if we look at the overall H2H record between them: 44-10-6 in favour of PSV.

PSV preview: Time for celebrations with their fans

After losing just once this entire season in the Eredivisie, PSV Eindhoven have won the title and in the last round of the Dutch championship, they will get a chance to celebrate it at home, with their fans. PSV have been nearly perfect at home so far, with 15 wins and one draw, so they'll certainly want to end the season with another triumph, even if they don't need the points.

Meanwhile, Sergino Dest, Isaac Babadi, and Noa Lang are on the team's injury list ahead of this match.

Predicted Lineup: Benitez – Teze, Ramalho, Boscagli, Junior – Til, Schouten, Veerman – Bakayoko, De Jong, Tillman

RKC Waalwijk preview: Still not clear of the danger

While RKC Waalwijk enter the last round outside of the relegation zone, they are only ahead of Excelsior thanks to goal difference. In fact, the difference is only three goals, so RKC will have to fight to at least lose by a small margin against PSV, if they can't avoid a loss.

On the bright side, Excelsior also have a tough match since they're away at Feyenoord and on top of that, RKC and Excelsior are fighting to avoid relegation playoffs, not direct relegation. So, RKC might still play in the top flight next season even if things don't go their way on Sunday.

When it comes to team news, Nouri El Harmazi is the only player on the sidelines for RKC as he's still dealing with a shoulder injury.

Predicted Lineup: Vaessen – Lutonda, Gaari, Van den Buijs, Lelieveld – Oukili, Niemeijer – Lokesa, Seuntjens, Margaret – Kramer

Player to watch: Luuk de Jong

Although he failed to score in the last round, keeping his season tally at 27, de Jong remains just one goal behind Vangelis Pavlidis in the race for the top scorer of the Eredivisie. Can he overtake him on the last day of the season?

Will de Jong score against RKC again?

With four goals and four assists in 10 games he played against RKC Waalwijk in this career, de Jong clearly has a good time when meeting this team. Will the same be true on Sunday?
