Premier League Soccer Picks and Predictions for MatchWeek 36

Premier League Soccer Picks and Predictions for MatchWeek 36

Which would you rather have: a good gambling weekend or a good weekend for your team? It’s a question that I was forced to face on Sunday, as I painfully watched my beloved Spurs lose to Arsenal, pissing away any hope of a UCL spot in the process, while still finding a way to hit my TT bet. In fact, I won both bets on here and every damn bet I made from Friday-Sunday to the tune of 21-ish units of profit, but somehow it all felt completely hollow when the final whistle blew Sunday.

Dont get me wrong, the extra money and ego boost from winning is great. And I certainly wouldnt want to lose my bets and anyone else’s money. But, at the same time, I think it’s a good thing to feel that way. When the gambling becomes more important than the actual love for the sport, you lose what mattered in the first place. I’ll always be more of a fan than I am a gambler, I just also wish that maybe for once in my fucking life both of those things could line up (which is entirely Tottenham’s fault, because they never win anything).

With that, let’s go try to win some money but also pray to the lord that Spurs dont suck this week.

Premier League Best Bets - Week 36

Brentford vs. Fulham: Saturday, May 4 - 10:00 AM EST

As we get deeper into the dark abyss known as the end of the season, betting can become a bit trickier. More and more teams have nothing left to play for and it’s hard to gauge just how hard they’ll play. But, while you may get the odd “dudd” performance or weird result, we can generally expect things to follow a somewhat coherent and consistent path.

So, while both of these teams have reached safety and are eyeing up a vacation, I think we can still comfortably go after Brentford’s team total here at -122 for over 1.5 goals. The return of Ivan Toney has certainly helped with their offensive output in the second half of the year, and the Bees tend to play chaotic games on their home pitch (27 scored and 30 conceded in 17 matches).

Fulham are pretty much phoning it in at this point aside from turning up for London derbies, and they give up over 2 goals per match on the road. My guess is we see more of the same here and Brentford take a big old bite out of the Cottagers (a big old sting? Idk, bees don't offer a lot of options).

⛏️ Sam's Pick: Brentford TT Over 1.5 (-122) - 1.22U

Chelsea vs. West Ham: Sunday, May 5 - 9:00 AM EST

Speaking of London derbies, enter two of the most useless and loathsome sides in the EPL. Both West Ham and Chelsea have had pretty dreadful seasons, which has been about the only thing keeping me afloat as I watch my Spurs also piss all my dreams away.

Here, we’re going a bit off the reservation and taking West Ham to score goals. The Hammers have not been in the best form, but at this point Chelsea arent even trying to play anything resembling coherent soccer as Poch is resigned to getting canned at the end of the year, and their matches play with the tactical coherence of a u8 town league. West Ham may well give up chances and goals themselves, but Chelsea will also hand them a few on a silver platter and at +162 for TT Over 1.5 on the Hammers I think the price is well worth it.

Is this dangerous? Certainly. West Ham are liable to piss all over themselves like they did against Palace. But, even if they do suck, it most likely wont be on the offensive end. Add in a Chelsea midweek fixture to slow them down and I think we have a bit of a bargain.

⛏️ Sam’s Pick: West Ham TT Over 1.5 (+162) - 1U

Dimers' Premier League Soccer Betting

As well as being your best source for EPL bets, Dimers also has the latest news, picks and predictions, Premier League best bets, as well as prop bets for all other sports.

Can I bet EPL with Dimers?

No. There’s no EPL bet slip on our site because we don’t take any EPL bets ourselves. We’re the friend who gives you the best EPL picks and bets then tells you where and how to get the best EPL sign up offers at the sportsbooks, so you can throw your EPL bets down. That’s it!

When you click on one of our buttons or links in our EPL content, you’re whisked away to DraftKings, BetMGM, FanDuel, or one of the many other sportsbooks we work with.

Once you get there, you can join up to score a welcome bonus (up to $200!), and then get those English Premier League bets down for yourself, but you’re betting on the EPL with them, not us. Since you are never betting anything directly with us, we don’t have access to your personal information or sensitive financial info like credit card numbers.

It also means that despite our best efforts to confirm that a sports betting site still has that awesome EPL sign up offer available, the best ones often disappear just as quickly as they appeared. We always take these offers down once we know they’re no longer available. We take our responsibility to provide up to date EPL information very seriously.

Finally, Responsible Gambling is extremely important to us, so please remember that EPL betting should be seen as a form of entertainment - adding to your enjoyment while watching from the couch - not a side hustle or second income stream.

If Dimers doesn't take Premier League bets, then how do you make money?

Whenever you join a sportsbook mentioned in our English Premier League picks, parlays and predictions content across the website, or you use one of our promo codes, we get a small commission for referring you. Don’t worry, though, this doesn’t affect you in any way at all. That’s a fee the sportsbook pays us as a thank-you for sending another EPL bettor their way.

We’re always happy to help our readers troubleshoot any problems. Start with our About Us or Contact Us and if that doesn’t work for you, then you can always send us an email at contact@dimers.com. We’ll do our best to help you figure it out.
