Premier League Best Bets Matchweek 37

Last Updated: May 18, 2023

The Premier League season is drawing to a close, with Manchester City closing in on another Premier League championship. City can clinch the EPL title with a win over Chelsea on Sunday or by Arsenal falling to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

However, the more exciting race to watch may be the one to avoid relegation.

Southampton has already clinched their drop to the Championship, while Leicester City, Leeds United, Everton, and Nottingham Forest are clinging on for dear life. Only four points separate the clubs, with Leicester and Leeds currently in position to fall.

Let’s dig into the EPL fixtures for Matchweek 37 and determine our best bets.

Liverpool vs Aston Villa Best Bet

Over 1.5 Goals & Liverpool Wins (-150) • BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Liverpool will be playing in front of the Anfield crowd for the last time this season when Aston Villa visits this weekend.

Jürgen Klopp and the Reds will be looking for their eighth consecutive victory in the Premier League, knocking on the door for a spot in the Champions League.

Liverpool are in top form, having collected three clean sheets in a row, and should be able to handle a resurgent Aston Villa club with their tenacious press.

Bournemouth vs Manchester United Best Bet

Both Teams Score & Manchester United Wins (+175) • BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Erik ten Hag will look to end his first season at Old Trafford on a high note by fending off Liverpool for a place in the Top 4.

The Cherries have put together a strong campaign during the 2022-23 season but have little to play for against a team who has everything to lose.

Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay are back in training, which should boost the Red Devils.

Look for both clubs to score in a Manchester United victory.

Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal Best Bet

Both Teams Score & Arsenal Wins (+185) • BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Forest switched to a 3-5-2 last weekend at Chelsea in order to change things up, but it is doubtful that will be enough against Arsenal this weekend.

The Gunners have all but squandered their chances at the Premier League title but will need to defeat Forest to keep their hopes alive.

You could argue that Arsenal have little to play for, but the fact that they will be playing the day before Man City should give them enough fire to defeat an inferior opponent and end their season strong.

Look for Leandro Trossard or Reiss Nelson to replace an injured Gabriel Martinelli, with Thomas Partey potentially getting a start in midfield for Granit Xhaka.

I expect Arsenal to leave the City Ground with three points, with each club reaching the back of the net.

Premier League Matchweek 37 Parlay (+744) • BetMGM Sportsbook

  • Liverpool Wins (vs Aston Villa)
  • Manchester United Wins (at Bournemouth)
  • Arsenal Wins (at Forest)
  • Brighton -2 (vs Southampton)


In addition to the three plays mentioned above, I fully expect Brighton to win a lopsided match against a demoralized Southampton squad.

The Saints will be playing on the road just one week after officially being relegated from the Premier League, and it would be a surprise to see them mount an inspired effort against a vastly superior team.
