Fulham vs Everton
Fulham +1 (no push) +105
Everton are clearly the superior side to Fulham as they rank 10 places higher in the table, but home-field advantage may prove to be more than enough to propel recently relegated Fulham into a positive result.
Fulham own a 4W-3D-9L home record, which is good enough for a 44% win/draw rate, and this number improves all the way to 70% when you take out their home matches against the top-six teams in the league. On the flip side, Everton are only 5-3-8 (31% win rate) in their travels, so most of their success has come at home this season.
There aren't many spots where we want to bet on Fulham, but at home against non-big-six sides is one of the few exceptions.
Leicester vs Newcastle
Newcastle +1 (no push) +120
Leicester City are currently seventh in the table and they are holding a 7-2-7 home record (44% win rate). The Foxes have performed almost identically on the road. at 7-3-7, so their overall success this season can be more attributed to their above-average away performances rather than their subpar home ones.
Newcastle are not world beaters away from home by any means, but they do a good enough job avoiding losses, holding a 2-7-7 away record. This is good for a 56% win/draw rate, so they should stand a good chance to earn at least one point in the match at Leicester this weekend.
Watford vs Arsenal
Watford +1 (no push) -140
Arsenal are an average team, at best, away from home, sporting a 5-4-6 road mark (33% win rate), and they have struggled even worse in recent away matches. The Gunners have dropped points in eight out of their last nine road matches, with the only win during that span coming in a 2-1 victory at lowly Huddersfield.
Unai Emery's side will be going up against a Watford team that is very good on their home soil, carrying a 8-2-5 (53% win rate and 67% win/draw rate) mark at Vicarage Road. Watford would be disappointed with anything less than one point from this match, and they may even fancy themselves to take the full three points.
