The UEFA Europa League Quarter-Finals roll on as the clashes on Thursday, April 15, pit four soccer clubs with very different histories against each other. This time, Manchester United host Granada at the Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester, England, while Arsenal travel to the Czech Republic to face Slavia Prague.
It looks like the Manchester United vs Granada matchup has already been decided but there is always space for surprises, as history has shown us in the Europa League the past several years. On the other side, the Slavia Prague vs Arsenal matchup is still open as both teams equally risk missing out on the Semi-Finals.
While picking a straight winner might not be as attractive there are many betting opportunities in the over/under or who scores first that might be much more attractive. Let’s take a look at the sports betting options for these matchups.
Manchester United vs Granada betting picks
Manchester United have a strong 2-0 lead from the first leg, which was in fact these two sides' first clash ever. Rashford and Bruno Fernandes proved to be too strong for the Spanish sensation who knocked Napoli out of the competition, and the two players have moved the Red Devils very close to qualifying for the next stage.
Thus, it's understandable why FanDuel are favoring the Premier League outfit by a big margin, as they are paying out -220, Granada +650, and a draw is at +330. We expect another easy win for Man Utd, so It’s not unreasonable to think that they can win this game 3-0 and that score line is paying +850.
Slavia Prague vs Arsenal betting picks
Arsenal decided to complicate their own destiny despite having already been halfway into the UEFA Europa League Semi-Finals. They have a toughly earned 1-0 home lead against Slavia Prague but failed to keep it as the guests equalized during the extra time, shortly before the final whistle. It was these sides' third overall meeting, and what is concerning is the Gunners' record of only one win (7-0).
The oddsmakers are still favoring the Emirates outfit a big margin, as they are paying out -120, Slavia Prague +330, and a draw is at +260. Now, the English club will certainly not repeat the 7-0 result from their first clash ever, but they will definitely need as many goals as possible, especially considering the fact that the Czech team have an away goal. As a result, betting that Arsenal will win this game 3-0 could be a sure bet, at +1600 on FanDuel.
Parlays for these two matchups of the UEFA Europa League Quarter-Finals
A solid parlay bet could be the following: Manchester United to beat Granada 3-0, and Arsenal to beat Slavia Prague 3-0. At $100, the bettor could win up to $2,450.
