Chelsea vs Arsenal
Arsenal +1 (no push) +105
There is no question that Arsenal have been poor this season, and they remarkably sit in 10th place in the standings in what continues to be a disastrous year. However, the Gunners' disappointment has been mostly from a league-leading 11 draws. Their 6W-11D-6L record is mediocre at best, but they are still a difficult team to earn a victory against.
In addition, Chelsea are not a dominant home team at 5-2-4 (45.5% win rate), making Arsenal to win/draw at +105 a tempting proposition. Arsenal’s 2-6-3 away record means they only lose 27.3% of their away games.
Arsenal are having an incredibly disappointing season, yet they are still a difficult team to earn three points against. With Chelsea being far from dominant this year, the Gunners should be able to hang on for at least a point.
Leicester City vs West Ham
West Ham +1 (no push) +150
Leicester City have had a fantastic season thus far, and they still are in third place in the table. However, they have begun to hit a bit of a skid recently. The Blue Foxes are just 2-1-4 in their last 7 league matches, including a 0-1-2 record in their last 3 home games.
On the other side, West Ham are a decent away team at 3-3-5, so they are losing less than half of their away games this year. The Hammers are all the way down at 16th in the table, but they are up to 8th in WhoScored.com’s team rankings, so they may be better than their record is indicating.
At +150, the implied odds of a West Ham draw/win are 40% but based on the recent trends, it appears these odds should be close to even. West Ham at +150 win/draw is a good bet for Tuesday.
Wolves vs Liverpool
Liverpool to win -165
Liverpool are having a historical season to say the least -- with a remarkable 21-1-0 record to start the season. This includes a 9-1-0 record away from home with a +16 goal difference including away wins against Chelsea, Leicester and Tottenham.
On Wednesday, Liverpool will square off with Wolves, who are having a good season at 8-10-5, but they are nowhere near the caliber of Liverpool. Wolves are 30 points behind Jurgen Klopp’s side, and they are 34 goals behind on goal differential.
Wolves are not a bad team, and they could give Liverpool fits, but at -165 the implied odds for a Liverpool win are only 62.3%. Considering Liverpool have won 90% of their away games and over 95% of their total league games, there is a large gap between the odds and Liverpool’s performance to date this season.
