The English soccer league Premier League continues next week with Round 36, to be played from Tuesday, May 11 to Sunday, May 16. The previous Round 35 didn't bring a change at the top of the table as Manchester City are still leading Manchester United by 13 points. In third is Chelsea, followed by Leicester City, West Ham, and Liverpool.
In Round 36, Chelsea and Arsenal will come head-to-head in the London derby on Wednesday, May 12. The next day, on Thursday, May 13, second-placed Manchester United will host Liverpool in one of the most heated derbies in the history of the Premier League.
This round provides an opportunity for the bettor to play around with parlays, picks in the over/under, or goalscorers. Here are some sports betting predictions to consider when placing a bet on these Premier League matchups.
Chelsea vs Arsenal betting picks (Wednesday, May 12)
The London derby is undoubtedly one of the two the most exciting game of Round 36. An interesting fact is that Chelsea have been winless in three of their most recent clashes. The last time the Blues celebrated a victory against Arsenal was on December 29, 2019, and they grabbed a win on their home turf on May 29, 2019. In contrast to their three previous matches in which the Gunners triumphed, FanDuel now believe that the Champions League finalist will finally get rid of their unlucky spell.
Arsenal are +410 underdogs, mostly because of their poor performances in the Premier League 2021-22 season and in the Europa League where they failed to get to the Final. On the other hand, Chelsea have been unbeaten in the league since April 3. Taking all of this into account, betting that the game ends in a 3-1 win for Chelsea could be a fun bet, at +1400, a $100 bet could earn the bettor $1,400.
Manchester United vs Liverpool betting picks (Thursday, May 13)
When not expected, Liverpool have shown incredible signs of struggle and clumsiness, despite still being the reigning EPL champions. The oddsmakers favor them for this matchup, but it is a fact that Jurgen Klopp's side have actually lost four points in the last three league games. In spite of that, they have something worth fighting for, as the Reds battle for a Champions League spot for next season.
However, Manchester United have not lost a single league clash since January 27. In addition, only once in five of their most recent derbies, these two clubs have managed to score more than 2 goals. As a result, betting that the game will end in Under 2.5 goals could be a sure bet, at +122, a $100 bet could earn the bettor $122 on FanDuel.
Parlays for these two matchups of Premier League Round 36
A solid parlay bet could be the following: Chelsea to beat Arsenal 3-1, and Manchester United and Liverpool to score Under 2.5 goals in the derby. At $100, the bettor could win up to $1,522.
