One of the most popular soccer leagues amongst soccer betting sites is the English Premier League. The EPL is famous worldwide due to the high-level talent their clubs bring in, as well as the rich tradition the sport enjoys. Being one of the largest fan favorite leagues in the world, there won’t be any shortage of online soccer betting players wagering on the EPL’s Week 37 matchups.
Most of Week 37’s action is in the books, except for a handful of games that still have to be played. Specifically, Southampton and Man U will go head to head this Wednesday, followed by Thursday’s matchup between Leicester City and Tottenham. So far, this week’s action has been fairly predictable with essentially no upsets. Maybe the rest of Week 37’s contest will prove to be different.

Southampton isn’t the most impressive EPL team, but surprisingly enough most soccer betting sites are still giving them a fighting chance against Manchester. This is far from unsubstantiated, considering that in their last 4-game Southampton has been able to pull two over Man U. However, bettors should know that Manchester is undefeated in their last 5 away matches at St. Mary’s. Will Southampton be able to put an end to that dire streak?
Man U’s manager, Jose Mourinho has been down on his luck lately. Mourinho had high hopes that he would be able to add a second trophy to the cabinet alongside his victory at Old Trafford back in February’s EFL Cup victory over Southampton, but so far the Red Devils couldn’t be farther from.
Manchester was optimistic that the addition of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba would ignite a title challenge – something the Reds were in desperate need of. However, the results have been rather unimaginative as the United’s efforts haven’t been enough for the club to crack the top four in EPL standings.
Throughout 37 weeks of online soccer betting action, Man U has amassed a 17-14-5 record that ranks the club 6th in the EPL. United’s 65 points on the season ranks them 4-points behind 5th place Arsenal and 4-points ahead of 7th place Everton.
