Premier League Matchday 38 Betting Odds: Only Two Matches That Matter

Posted By Katya Gokhman on May 9, 2019

After this week’s utterly insane Champions League games, can the final Premier League matchday offer the same kind of excitement?

Matchday 38, again, really boils down two matches – and I think we all know what two matches those are. All eyes will be on Brighton vs Manchester City and Liverpool vs Wolves.

Odds & Ends

  • Let’s start with the team projected to win the Premier league – Manchester City. Manchester City (-650) will be taking on Brighton (+1300) away at the AMEX this Sunday. The odds say it all and so do the standings – while Manchester City sit in 1st place with -850 odds to win the Premier League, Brighton sit 17th in the league.
  • However, interestingly, Brighton’s odds have dropped this week. They were over +3000 / +2000 on some sites (and for the most part, still are +2000 in England). However, in the US they’re +1300 on FanDuel and +1700 on DraftKings Sportsbook. Is Brighton seeing a flood of hopeful Liverpool fans after their epic comeback over Barcelona?
  • One half of the 2019 UEFA Champions League finalists, Liverpool (-320), take on Wolves (+750) at home Sunday. One can’t help but wonder if Klopp will now be more focused on building his team up for the Champions League final rather than exhausting himself to win the Premier League title that seems to be out of reach. With that being said, Liverpool are on a roll and have no reason to slow down. Of the last 9 meetings with Wolves, Liverpool has won six, including the last four. What’s interesting, however, and conflicting somewhat with the previous bullet, is that despite Liverpool’s dramatic win over Barcelona, the public has not pushed them to any better odds of winning the Premier league – On Monday, the odds were +550 and they have stayed the same even after the win against Barcelona.
