EPL Matchday 38 Betting Tips

There is just one round of games to play in the EPL! All 10 games in Matchday 38 will be played on Monday morning from 1am and there is still a bunch of games that have massive implications in both the relegation race and the race for European qualification. See our full preview and betting tips for the key games of the round below.

EPL Matchday 38 Betting Tips

Leicester City vs Manchester United

King Power Stadium, Monday 1am (AEST)

Win this game, play in the Champions League next season, it’s as simple as that for both Leicester and Manchester United on Monday morning. The two teams are currently separated  by just one point in 3rd and 5th place on the EPL and a win would see either automatically qualify for the UCL. There’s even potential for a draw to result in both teams finishing in the top four, given Chelsea lose to Wolverhampton.

Manchester United are arguably the form side in the competition at the moment, going undefeated in their last 10 games, having won six of them. They are coming off a hard fought draw with West Ham in Matchday 38 and have a dominant history against the Foxes. They have not lost to Leicester City in their last 10 meetings, dating all the way back to a 5-3 loss in 2014.

In their current field with so much on the line, it’s hard to see the Red Devils losing this game. A draw would ensure their path into the Champions League, but there’s no doubt they’ll be hunting more than that, back them to win at good odds of $2.25.

Chelsea vs Wolverhampton

Stamford Bridge, Monday 1am (AEST)

The equation is quite simple for Chelsea here. While there is still a path for them to finish in the top four with a loss, securing at least one point here will guarantee a top four finish and a place back in the Champions League next season. The Blues will have one eye fixed on their upcoming FA Cup Final against Arsenal on the 2nd of August, but must take care of business in the Premier League first.

Luckily for the Blues, they have a good record against Wolverhampton at home. They are unbeaten in their last five home games against the Wolves, winning four and drawing one of those games. Unbelievably the Blues haven’t lost a final matchday home game since the 2001-02 season.

The Blues will no doubt go ultra-defensive here and look to secure at least the one point needed. Wolverhampton have a solid defence, allowing just 38 goals this season, expect this to be a low scoring game.

Arsenal vs Watford

Emirates Stadium, Monday 1am (AEST)

Love the value of Watford here with their place in the English Premier League on the line. Arsenal currently sit in 10th place and while they can jump up a few spots in the final standings, they won’t be able to jump high enough to qualify for the Europa League through their finishing place in the EPL. Instead, they’ll need to defeat Chelsea in the FA Cup Final to qualify for the European competition, so they’ll no doubt have all of their focus on that game.

Wouldn’t be surprised if Arsenal play a second rate side here to give their core players time to rest and recover before the all-important FA Cup Final. Watford also have a decent record against Arsenal considering the stature of the two teams, having won two and drawn one of their last six games.

Can see Watford securing at least one point here against what will be an undermanned Arsenal side to give themselves a great chance at staying in the Premier League next season. They need only a point combined with a Aston Villa loss to West Ham to ensure their place.
