The oddsmakers at DraftKings have laid out some interesting odds in two key matches of week 30 in the Premier League. Arsenal - Liverpool and Leicester City - Manchester City do battle in games that will determine European positions for next season.
With the league all but wrapped up and in City’s favor most teams will now look towards securing European cup positions for next season. For Leicester City it could be a week where the club secures their Champions League position, while for Arsenal, the Gunners can move closer to securing their Europa League standing.
These two games provide the bettor the chance to do good outright bets, picks, and parlays. Let’s review the betting options for these two interesting Premier League matches.
Arsenal - Liverpool
Arsenal, who have not had much to celebrate this season, will look to defeat Liverpool at home for the second straight time. Liverpool have only been able to win 2 of their last 20 playing away at Arsenal. Liverpool come in the favorites at -118, while Arsenal at +215 could be an interesting pick to win this match up. Liverpool have been up and down this season and Arsenal are due a big win.
Betting on the over 2.5 might be a tricky bet, both teams have fire power but are averaging 2 goals a game this season. If the match is open, we can expect at least 3 goals in this game. Mohamed Salah is always a good pick to score the match’s first opening goal and at +410 is a wise choice.
Leicester City - Manchester City
While Manchester City are the favorites in this clash at -186, the Foxes who are at +510 have been giant killers this season. Leicester has already beaten City this season and Man City has a .500 record against Leicester in their last four (2-2). While Pep Guardiola’s side has been a runaway train this season, they have been prone to some defeats and the Foxes have been a pest for both Manchester United and City.
A double chance bet where Leicester City wins or draws is paying out a healthy +155 and could ease any risk, yes Manchester City are the best team in the Premier League, but the Foxes have had an incredible season. Another interesting bet is to consider that Leicester City could win by a 1 goal winning margin, that seems much more feasible and at +700 could be an interesting option.
An interesting option would be to pick a Leicester win and a draw between Arsenal and Liverpool, that would result in $2,200 in winnings if the bettor wagers $100. If the bettor does a parlay where Leicester and Arsenal were to win at $100 the earnings would still be good at $1,800.
